5.0 out of 5 stars Great romance, a different twist 22 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
ISBN: 0671000411
In 1849 New York City, with the aid of her Aunt Pru and the servant Patrick, Celia Thomason makes a living as a highly regarded spiritualist. Irish businessman Brendan O'Neal, a skeptic, hires Celia to perform her parlor tricks with his distraught brother-in-law, Garrick Stevens. The grieving Garrick feels deep remorse over the accidental death of his beloved spouse, Amanda. Brendan wants Celia to shake Garrick out of his depression and also learn the truth behind Amanda's death.

To her shock Celia makes the deceased spouse actually appear in her aunt's home. While dining together at the Astor, Celia becomes drunk. The next day, Brendan persuades her that they had sex even though nothing happened between them. He blackmails her into marrying him even though he cannot understand why he is doing this. However, he becomes angry when he thinks she is scamming him when his deceased sister reappears. Meanwhile, Celia begins to think Garrick killed Amanda. As and Brendan fall in love, they pursue the truth guided by Amanda even if her spouse thinks her appearances are a distasteful parlor trick.

THE FOREVER BRIDE is an enjoyable historical romantic story line that adds a ghost and a mystery into a mix that triumphantly brings mid-nineteenth century New York City to life. Celia is a warm heroine who has the courage to do what it takes to succeed. The support cast augments the tale with a genuine taste of a bygone era. Though Brendan's attitude seems phony, Judith O'Brien writes a superb Americana historical romance sub-genre fans will relish.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has everything you need for a "good read"! 16 Nov 1999
By Kathleen G. Pylant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
WOW, I loved this book! It has passion and romance, supernatural happenings, family values, strong characters, historical background, and a super mystery with a startling ending.It is written with strong emotions - I laughed, got chills, hated, and sympathized with the characters. I could not put the book down; I cooked with it, bathed with it, and ignored household chores until I finished it.
