Thank you for the great review of Chasing Ghosts, Heartshaped Bluestocking. You understood the characters and what I, the writer, was trying to say through them. It’s exciting when a reader gets ‘it.’
Here’s a snippet of the review.
“The development of the story and the central characters is superb. While I found some of the detail a little extraneous, it was easy to overlook as the author’s research is meticulous. She writes with great style and certainly brings both periods of history to life. She builds the tension and drama step by step, and at various times you are relaxed and enjoying the pace and others it’s an edge-of-the-seat ride to get to the end of that particular episode of excitement.
The vivid descriptions and the haunting narrative pull at the heart. It is achingly painful in places. The fast-paced ending had me holding my breath and turning the pages as fast as possible. If you don’t read any of the others, do read this one. It is a fantastic novel and may well make it on to my Books of the Year. I highly recommend it to you.
PS: and while we should never judge a book by its cover – I really love this one!”
