The Mill
Cailyn Lloyd, author
As a psychic, seeing ghosts is routine for Lili. She isn’t surprised to discover spirits lurking in the renovated paper mill where she just bought an apartment. What she doesn’t expect is the dark, sinister presence under the floor and the serial killer who is prowling about the mill. When a woman is found murdered and another goes missing, Lili tries to work with one of the spirits—a young girl long dead—to expose the psychopath. But not everyone can be trusted and soon, Lili fears the killer will flee, never to be found and free to strike again.

Assessment:

Plot: A psychic aids the hunt for a serial killer in a cozy supernatural thriller. The plot is sequential and paced well, alternating perspectives of multiple characters, both corporeal and otherwise.

Prose: The writing is clean and straightforward without a lot of elaboration or descriptive writing. Dialogue reads naturally. 

Originality: The central conceit of a psychic communing with spirits to solve a mystery is not unique, but is handled with originality. The characters are distinct and effectively portrayed.

Character/Execution: The characters are thoughtfully developed, particularly the spirits, which lend an uncommon and likable personality to the book.
