Review for the Spirit of the Rebellion

Spirit of The Rebellion is a ghost story, mystery and love story wrapped up in one convenient package that in the beginning I was wondering how the author would be able to pull it off. Don't get me wrong, it was a great book, but I have read a ghost story that is a love story and I just couldn't wrap my head around the idea so it took away from the book.

Thankfully it was not the case this time. It starts off with Shae coming to a new house, fully aware that the tenants, may have left their bodies' but they are still among the living, just as ghost's, 6 of them in fact occupy the Starling house plantation and they don't like new room mates with a pulse.

During her stay Shae is translating documents from Norwegian to English and vice versa for her work and comes across a Civil War mystery involving treason.

As she charms the life back into the place and each of the ghost's fall in love with her personality, some more then other's, join her in a trip back in time to clear an innocent man's name.

The ending was absolutely amazing, I had hoped for one way and got an even better one

Review for the Spirit of the Rebellion

I truly enjoy stories like these- the obstacles that two people living a world apart face to be together after finding one another in the strangest of happenings. So many questions run through my mind as I read the pages. Spirit of the Rebellion is no different. This lovely written story captured my attention with its wonderful characters, intense plot, and well written structure. Good ghost romance stories are hard to come by, but this one is a definite keeper! Tristan and Shae Lynn have a long way to go before they can find peace and happiness, and the story they take is one not to be missed! Get your copy today.

Review for the Spirit of the Rebellion

Spirit of the Rebellion is one of the best books I have ever read. It is so well written and captivating, I just could not put it down as I HAD to find out what happened next. It is the perfect mixture of mystery, intrigue, history and romance. I bought my Mum a copy for her birthday and just know that she will love it as much as I do :)

Review for the Spirit of the Rebellion

"Why would her words bother him? More importantly, why did it bother her that it bothered him?"

Ready for a change, Shae Lynn accepts a position translating Civil War documents for an upcoming museum exhibit. Of course, the assignment requires she move into an old plantation home - a haunted plantation home. But the idea of ghosts doesn't bother Shae Lynn. She's dealt with one before and shouldn't have a problem here. Though she has never encountered someone who wants her gone as badly as the Captain does. Tristan just wants some privacy in the afterlife. He doesn't need a beautiful young woman moving in and he certainly doesn't want her reading and translating those documents. Why won't she just get the point? Instead of running away, she seems to be delving deeper into the past, trying to find out who he is and what really happened when he died. Is the truth waiting to be found, or will his disgrace live on forever?.

My Opinion: This was a simply fabulous read and one that really was a delightful surprise. Obviously done with a lot of research, you didn't feel bogged down by the facts, but rather swept into the echoes of the past. Additionally, the inclusion of a bit of mythical lore makes for an unique twist. Both the main characters and side characters are introduced carefully, making for realistically developed relationships. The romance is heart-wrenching and wonderful and simply toe-curling. It really pulls you in. This one will definitely keep you reading and reading to find out what will happen next. I was almost disappointed that it was over since it was such a delight to read. I would highly recommend this one.

Review for the Spirit of the Rebellion

I happened upon this book completely by accident, and boy am I glad I did. It combines several of my favorite elements - - paranormal romance, a Civil War hero, and a modern day heroine. Captain Tristan Jordhal fought nobly in the Union Army before being betrayed and murdered by a trusted ally. The only person capable of clearing his name is Shae Lynn Montgomery who has settled into Starling Manor (the manor home were Tristan died) for the purpose of translating nineteenth century documents written in Norwegian. (Did I mention there is a hint of Norse mythology, another favorite topic of mine, intricately woven throughout the compelling plot?) While initially doing everything he can to drive her away, Tristan soon realizes Shae is the one person capable of clearing his name. More than that, he develops an attraction to her that defies logic.

When Shae finally meets Tristan “face-to-face” she is struck by the connection they share. How do a ghost and a mortal who fall in love overcome the boundaries that separate them? That would be giving the plot away, a lovely ball of twine that weaves rivalry, betrayal, and buried secrets among its many nooks and crannies. Beyond my obvious enjoyment for the story, I completely fell in love with Tristan, a hero to make any woman’s heart go pitter-patter. This is a sweet romance with paranormal elements… a beguiling and sigh-worthy read that I fully intend to enjoy over again.
