    I actually really enjoyed this book and was quite surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did I am normally a mystery girl but this is nothing but a straight up paranormal romance I do admit I have always had a soft spot for ghost and ghost stories I enjoyed all the characters and the fact the story gave you insight tothan just the main characters thoughts feelings If your are looking for a lot of twists and side plots, this isn t it The story is very straight forward and predictab I actually really enjoyed this book and was quite surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did I am normally a mystery girl but this is nothing but a straight up paranormal romance I do admit I have always had a soft spot for ghost and ghost stories I enjoyed all the characters and the fact the story gave you insight tothan just the main characters thoughts feelings If your are looking for a lot of twists and side plots, this isn t it The story is very straight forward and predictable I wasn t upset by the predictably as it waslike the predictably of a comfy couch versus the predictably of a monotonous job The only thing that leaves the reader at a unknown is how the author is going to end it and tie up all the loose ends The only thing that kept this from 5 stars is all the talk in the book about how strong Maggie is Well she is not a strong character but she does grow towards that in in the end The author tries to explain this away with some not so good excuses The narrator was very good at all the voices and I didn t feel like they overdid the southern accents

    I ll fully admit something hearing the audiobook version of this story it s excellently read by the narrator Gabra Zackman , and the premise of the story had potential between a 30 something history teacher and a Civil War ghost The premise seems sweet, mysterious, atmospheric, and the hook that brought me to this story over the fact that it was a Harlequin work If the sexual elements were toned down, and the dialogue not so cheesy campy downright eye roll worthy, I probably would ve liked I ll fully admit something hearing the audiobook version of this story it s excellently read by the narrator Gabra Zackman , and the premise of the story had potential between a 30 something history teacher and a Civil War ghost The premise seems sweet, mysterious, atmospheric, and the hook that brought me to this story over the fact that it was a Harlequin work If the sexual elements were toned down, and the dialogue not so cheesy campy downright eye roll worthy, I probably would ve liked thisPlus, there were just parts of this that were uncomfortable to listen to and completely unrealistic and not in the sense that it deals with a ghost story, but in the dynamic of events and character interaction.I m starting to find my footing with better romance erotica stories, and while this isn t close to what I would call one of the better ones I ve read, it s not by any means the worst I ve heard I ve heard much, much worse The historical backstory and Maggie searching for clues as to the life of Isabel, Ethan s love from the past, was refreshing, muchin depth than typically noted for this genre of books I don t mind Maggie s characterization either at least the author isn t overbearing on either her flaws or her virtues.The main conflict is predictable as one follows the story, but I think those who aren t expecting too much will not mind the repetition It bugged me that there were cases of repetitive diction and description, but I consider that a nitpick of minethan anything else PI m probably one of the few people who didn t mind the ending I ve heard similar stories end up in the way that it did, so while it didn t surprise me, it didn t upset me either The epilogue left it on a note where I thought things were tied together well.Overall, I wouldn t hold much against this story it had potential and there were parts of it that I liked, but there were just as many parts of it I didn t like and felt could have developed into afulfilling, compelling story if it wasn t hampered by the dialogue and the overfocused sexual situations.Overall 2 5

    The Haunting is one category romance that is very spicy with the sex scenes and talk Overall, a very delicious and sensual read that has an overwhelming atmospheric feel Too bad it wasn t a full length novel withinsight on our star crossed lovers especially the ones during the Civil War Through memories and diary entries, we meet Ethan our Yankee hero and his soul mate Isabel who is a Southern Belle from Virginia Maggie is a present day assistant professor who has just bought her first The Haunting is one category romance that is very spicy with the sex scenes and talk Overall, a very delicious and sensual read that has an overwhelming atmospheric feel Too bad it wasn t a full length novel withinsight on our star crossed lovers especially the ones during the Civil War Through memories and diary entries, we meet Ethan our Yankee hero and his soul mate Isabel who is a Southern Belle from Virginia Maggie is a present day assistant professor who has just bought her first house Maggie has been through a lot in life She has lost her parents and sister, almost committed suicide and has a semi abusive relationship with her former therapist Maggie s world is about to become very interesting when she finds the diary of Isabel, a young woman who lived in the house during the Civil War Maggie soon comes to realize that she is the reincarnation of Isabel from meeting the ghost of Ethan who resides in the home Ethan was from Boston and in the bluecoat s army He meets Isabel and they start having a hidden romance Unfortunately their romance was cut short by tragedy and Ethan being framed by a man who wants Isabel for himself We are given glimpse of Virginia and a sweet young woman s love for her enemy through her diary, along with Maggie trying to understand this all, including the ghost of Ethan who is able to be intimate with Maggie and make her remember her life as Isabel Their love scenes sizzle even though Ethan is a ghost But how can they have a life together The forces seem stacked against these two but Hope Tarr gives us an incredible romance and an ending that is very touching and beautiful

    The Haunting1 StarQuickie ReviewIdiotic plot and one dimensional characters that I couldn t care less about The heroine is an obsequious doormat and despite the fact that her boyfriend is a complete jerk, the fact that she cheats on him, albeit with a ghost, is inescapable The hero is a pathetic excuse for an alpha male and is actually in love with the heroine s past life While the villain is suitably obnoxious, even his comeuppance couldn t save this catastrophe.

    I m embarrassed to say that I really enjoyed this book I mean it s a Harlequin for crying out loud But let me tell you why I even read it and maybe you ll understand.It s a historical love story that transverses time It s the story of a couple from the civil war He was wrongfully hung and now his ghost is knocking around her old attic for 150 years She s reincarnated and has just moved in prior to starting her teaching job at the local university and runs into him It is a story of reunited I m embarrassed to say that I really enjoyed this book I mean it s a Harlequin for crying out loud But let me tell you why I even read it and maybe you ll understand.It s a historical love story that transverses time It s the story of a couple from the civil war He was wrongfully hung and now his ghost is knocking around her old attic for 150 years She s reincarnated and has just moved in prior to starting her teaching job at the local university and runs into him It is a story of reunited love crossing centuries.OK, so it s a bit cheesy Here s why I liked it.It s set in my home town and was written by a local author Only reason I snagged it from my mum and probably the only reason she got it in the first place Fredericksburg, VA claims to be the country s most historic city It has been home to five US Presidents, signers of the Declaration of Independance lived here, it was the home of Alex Haley s ancestors seriously Roots was set about a 20 minute drive from downtown , and it was home to half a dozen major battles during the Civil War Now it s a burb of DC.With historical romances loving the Civil War timeframe why War is NOT pretty, it is NOT sexy, and it is NOT fun And the Civil War was neighbour against neighbour and us burning our own towns, killing our own people, and etc I have never run across one set in Fredericksburg Everyone focuses on Gettysburg and the like for the Civil War Maybe it s the bloodbath that ensued in Fredericksburg No one wants to touch on major bloodbath Well anyway, about dang time si all I gotta say.Fredericksburg is home to so many awesome ghost stories So I liked that, too I ve read a ton of different ones My best friend s house is haunted by a Civil War soldier Trust me So yeah, I love that this book pulled in a ghost story from town, that it hit on Fredericksburg during a very difficult time in our history And best of all The bulk of it was set in 2007 so the main character was hitting up places all over town My biggest complaint It was summer and this lady never went to Carl s for some ice cream Please Where was that But I cheered when she went to Claibourne s and I stuck my tongue out at Hyperion seriously how can a coffee shop screw up hot cocoa, no thanks I giggled at the awesome reference to our downtown library and this character even went to crazy Old Man Beck s bookstore next to the Visitor s Center And there wasn t even that much sex, which I basically skipped over I thought these books were mostly thinly veiled plots to get people in bed, but this one had a story The character was damaged and found healing through her digging into the past of her house, her ghost, and her past life It seemedlike the author went Oh yeah, this is a harlequin, better throw in a bed scene and made these as after thoughts.Hope Tarr should get out of the Harlequin business This book should have been picked up by a non Harlequin publisher I d like to say reputable but there are people who adore Harlequin I m not gonna become some Harlequin junkie, but if Hope Tarr writes another Fredericksburg book, I d be willing to give it a go in a heartbeat Seriously, I hope she gets out of the Harlequin business She could do some great things with ghost love stories that don t need to be Harlequin

    This one was a ghost story about a woman who moves into a new house and learns a whole lot about herself and her past And I m not talking about her current life, either I really enjoyed reading about Ethan too, and Maggie s story arc was great I was cheering for her several times.Anyway, if you enjoy a lovely love story that spansthan one lifetime, you ll definitely enjoy this one Oh, but I need to warn you, although there is a HEA, it s not an average one It was quite different, for This one was a ghost story about a woman who moves into a new house and learns a whole lot about herself and her past And I m not talking about her current life, either I really enjoyed reading about Ethan too, and Maggie s story arc was great I was cheering for her several times.Anyway, if you enjoy a lovely love story that spansthan one lifetime, you ll definitely enjoy this one Oh, but I need to warn you, although there is a HEA, it s not an average one It was quite different, for a romance novel Still, it made sense
