This series must be read in order. This is the first book.

Akira sees and talks to ghosts. Or that is to say she can... Though she tries not to. Personally she wishes she were crazy and could be fixed especially as one little paragraph in one article seems to have ruined her chance at an academic career. What is she supposed to do now? Teach highschool? No freaking way! That's why when she gets a mysterious job offer from a company she has never heard of she files clear across the country for an interview. What is the company? What do they do? Why do they want to hire her ? And what is her job description going to be? She is completely clueless and unsure what she is getting herself into but she does not have any other viable options. Will she even get the job?

Zane if from a family of quirky people. That does not mean he has a clue why he is interviewing Akira. His father told him to do it... But a scientist?! How could she be of any help to them? She is attractive but mousy... A cute mouse... Should he hire her? Will she even fit into the company? What is his father thinking?

This was a paranormal mystery on a small scale. It was also very much a romance and a coming of age story. Akira finds herself faced with difficult choices and her world upended but not necessarily in a bad way. The comedy lightens up the story a bit and made this a very realistic and enjoyable read! I was sucked in from the very beginning and cannot wait to see what happens next in this quirky little town in A Gift of Thought (Tassamara Book 2)!

***This series is suitable for adult readers

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!!

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 is a great story that I would wholeheartedly recommend!

Set in the fictional town of Tassamara, the story follows Scientist Akira Malone as she comes to terms with both her ability to talk to ghosts and her own past demons. Introducing us to a whole new world of ghosts and physic abilities, this story is full of life, leaving the reader greatly anticipating more tales from their world.

The author tells Akira's story, keeping the reader gripped and wanting to read on, whilst fully fleshing out the universe in which she is setting this tale. She also has that all too rare skill of character development, both with the central characters, who feel real from the outset and also giving us glimpses into the lives of the 'supporting cast', making them feel like real people rather than just tools for the central plot.

I for one am looking forward to reading the rest of this series, and can't wait to read Sarah Wynde's work in the future!

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.
