Troubled Spirits – Book Review

Cover

Synopsis

Jody has been a conduit for ghosts her entire life. Not only do they come to her for help, but at times she experiences what they feel when they die. This gift or curse comes at a high personal cost—especially when a child is involved. There’s not a man alive who is willing to compete with troubled spirits.

Jared, a wealthy and determined high-powered P.I., has lived without love his entire life. In business if he wants something, he goes after it with a vengeance and is usually not denied. His life experiences have taught him that believing and trusting in others is a dead end street.

But on one magical night Jared meets Jody, and they soon find themselves on the brink of falling in love. But will the spirits surrounding Jody relinquish their hold on her in order for Jared to stake his claim or will their love disappear in an ethereal puff of smoke?

Review

I received an ARC copy in return for an honest review.

My overall thoughts of this book throw me back to the days of watching Ghost whisperer with Jennifer love-Hewitt.
Jody’s gift of seeing spirits with one last message comes across as a gift, however it is beginning to feel more like a curse, this story explores how a small 4 year old persistent spirit girl, called Fiona tests Jody to her limits.

For the first time in a while it was nice to see a female character have two close male friends who have stuck by her and wanted nothing more than friendship, I find this rare in most books.
Another refreshing part was reading how Jody and Jared built their relationship on trust  before they became involved.  Jody came across as a loner where as Jared came across as a possessive sceptic before he fell for Jody’s non profited gift.

I found the beginning of the book very descriptive, looking at the story from different character view points.  Even though this helped build up a profile on each character I do feel this brought  the book down, only because it made the beginning of the book so slow.  It took me until 40% of the way through before I felt I was getting somewhere, and Jared had not even shown up yet.

Overall I did enjoy this book, the beginning was slow but once I got halfway through I was stuck.  I couldn’t put the book down.  I wish there was a second to see how Jody gets on with her new life and gifts.  I can’t say too much because it would ruin the end.  Definitely give it a read.
