"I read and reviewed this book before it was printed as an e-book. It is a hauntingly beautiful book about life and death, love and tenderness, and retribution and forgiveness. Susan, you are a wonderful writer and you have definitely given us a story to keep in our hearts." ~Jeri Holmes
"The Deer Effect held me in suspense regarding where it was heading. Would she return to life? Was her function to bring her husband to God? Why was she a little girl? The development of grief & loneliness was well done. Definitely a good read!" ~Dennis Hazelton
"Susan Wingate has given her readers a novel cast from a different mold than her best selling thriller-suspense series Bobby's Dinner. The Deer Effect is an inspirational Christian fantasy novel wrapped in a metaphysical cloak of ghostly proportions giving the reader chills and a desire to join in all at the same time.
A hit-and-run driver on a lonely stretch of road kills Hannah. Her husband Rod is inconsolable and unable to turn to God or the church because of his stubborn disbelief. Her little dog Bobby is confused, not knowing where his mommy went and why she won't come back. Hannah blatantly breaks the rules that set her on a course for heaven to help Rod and Bobby, plus help them catch the s.o.b. that killed her.
Wingate style is well written and at times almost poetical in her prose. Her fantasy base is clear and thought out, consistent in its execution. The Deer Effect is a novel worth reading more than once." ~Alan Black, author of Chasing Harpo
