This is a lovely story reminded my of Charlaine Harris and her stories of Harper Connolly - Sarah Wynde A Gift of Ghosts is well written a good romantic story that weaves its way through to a good conclusion - I would love to read a next instalement if there is any to come - good charecters had me smiling and interested / page turning throughout. I would rate it very worhtwile to read.
And at the Kindle price cannot be beaten!

This was a short book which finished at 90% so it was quickly read. It was a bit quirky with
mostly friendly ghosts. Akira can see and talk with ghosts, though not with dead people, so
she isn't a medium.
She gets a new job in Florida and a car with a resident teenage ghost living in it. Akira grows to
love the boy and tries to help him. She is also attracted to her new boss, Zane.
Some ghosts can be dangerous to other ghosts and to humans and Akira is very wary of
communicating with them.
Personally, I could have done without the sex scene which I think could have been skimmed over,
but others may think differently. This was an o.k. book, but I didn't feel involved enough with the
characters to read any more in the series.

This was one of those books that I selected on a whim, it caught my eye on Netgalley – and I’m so glad it did. A Gift of Ghosts is a fun and enjoyable read from start to finish. Being a little under two hundred pages, I absolutely flew through it, and am definitely going to read the next few books in the series.

The story is a simple and enjoyable one. Akria believes in all things scientific – except she can see ghosts and no one else can. When she takes a job on the other side of the country, she finds out her boss, Zane Latimer believes in all kinds of paranormal behaviour. The two of them clash, and with the Latimer family’s tragic past, Akria has to decide whether to flee back to her old life, or embrace the gifts she has always fought to hide away.

Akira is a great character, she’s stubborn, determined and intelligent, but also at times vulnerable and funny. Akira and Zane make for a very interesting pair, and both of them are very likeable. It was easy to immerse myself in the story because the characters felt realistic – despite the paranormal setting.

One thing I absolutely loved about A Gift of Ghosts is the setting – Tassmarra is a fascinating little town in which everyone has a paranormal ability. You can see ghosts? Not a problem. I was particularly intrigued by Maggie’s Diner, the restaurant in which the chef and owner knows exactly what everyone wants to eat.

The story is well paced, and has plenty of interesting plot moments. There’s also some romance elements to the story as well, which aren’t too over the top, but tie in nicely with the story. My one reason for not giving the book five stars is how short the story is.

A Gift of Ghosts is a book written by Sarah Wynde

I got the book from Amazon UK, as free download. I have a habit of downloading free books, but this one sounded really good so I thought I’d move it to the top of my list.

I must say, I am really glad that I did make the decision to read this book next. The story was excellent. The writing was so easy to read, that I read through all 191 pages within a few days (and at the moment, that is something of a record for me).

The book is a romance story, which I don’t normally read, however, the inclusion of ghosts piqued my interest.

We meet Akira, a young scientist, who goes for an interview at a scientific research company. She is offered the job, and makes an on-the-spot decision to take it. She quits her current job, leaves her apartment and all her friends to move to Tassamara – all within a short space of time.

Zane is her boss (and from reading the story, in my imagination, a very attractive man). Zane is the man that interviews Akira for his family run business – offering her the world in her scientific area of study. Zane and his family also believe in areas of psychic ability. Zane’s father believes Akira may be the one to help their family with some areas that need ‘specialist’ help.

As well as being a fully qualified, and well educated scientist, Akira, has the ability to see and communicate with spirits. She has always kept it quiet for fear of people thinking she is crazy, but maybe all that is about to change.

I read this book not really knowing what to expect; I came away wanting more! The story stayed with me long after I had finished the last page.

The characters are not your typical supernatural protagonists, and I actually found that really refreshing!

But I was on Akira's side from the first page, and fell in love with the other characters as the story progressed.

If you like supernatural and you like female leads who have more brain than brawn: buy this book!!

A quirky story that was an enjoyable read, but rather predictable romantically. I gave this book three stars because I felt that the story could have been given more depth to offer a more intriguing development of the characters. I did like the concept of the main character being able to communicate with ghosts but would not necessarily want to read any of the other books in this series.
