Ghost Coach by Amanda Linehan

Ghost Coach by Amanda Linehan is a paranormal short story and is 15 pages in length. I was able to download this short story for free from Amazon to my Kindle. 

Below is my honest, unbiased opinion of Ghost Coach by Amanda Linehan.

I read this short story last month. It sounded like a cute, fast, fun read... Plus, it had four, 5-star reviews on Amazon, so I decided to give it a go.

Well, I was disappointed by the end of Ghost Coach and was left wondering why it had four, 5-star reviews on Amazon. I loved the concept of this short story, but I thought it had been poorly executed. I found myself wanting to rewrite this short story and either make it more of a horror short story or a paranormal romance short story. 

Essentially, this story is about a ghost who isn't very scary. He's trying to scare Sarah, but isn't successful in scaring her at all. So why does this ghost want to scare someone so badly?? By scaring someone, the ghost will finally become visible, which he wants to have happen very badly. The ghost finally solicits Sarah for help. He wants her to teach him how to scare someone. She tries to help him out repeatedly without success. However, they do become friends over time. The ghost finally gives up and says he's going to cross over to the other side, but doesn't end up doing so... He returns to see Sarah and accidentally scares her in the process, which leads him into becoming visible. How Sarah ends up getting scared was odd. Plus, I thought once the ghost became visible, Sarah and the ghost would start a romance, but that didn't happen. Ghost Coach simply had a flat ending.

I am giving Ghost Coach by Amanda Linehan a rating of 2 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. It sounds quirky though; too bad it was disappointing and "the ending fell flat." :-(

    1. You win some and lose some... The good thing was that this was a short read and free, which I find to be a great way to discover new to me authors.
