5 Stars: I Loved It!
When a woman claiming to be a ghost from 1912 appears in Nick Marshal’s office and begs for help in solving her murder, he thinks he has lost his mind. A scandal that rocked Hollywood almost destroyed his law practice, so he doesn’t need any more fireworks as he rebuilds his life. Still, he is intrigued by Abigail Carlisle’s plea, and he needs clients, even if this one insists she’s dead. The more secrets Nick uncovers, the deeper he falls for the beautiful ghost.
Abigail believes Nick is her heart’s true desire, but how can happily-ever-after happen when she’s already dead? The more time she spends with him, the more real she becomes, until Nick can finally touch her.
In a strange turn of events, Nick is suddenly whisked back to 1912, two weeks before Abby’s murder, but she doesn’t remember him. When he attempts to win her over so he can save her from a tragic destiny, Abby thinks Nick is courting her for her inheritance. But even if he can rescue her and make her trust him again, how can they be together forever?
I loved this book! The romance was beautiful. The chemistry between Nick and Abbie was great. I loved all the twists and turns the plot took. This was contemporary meets historical fiction. I love both genres so it was right up my alley.
The story was told from both characters’ perspectives which is always fun. I enjoyed learning both of their thoughts through this way of story telling. The author took me on a wonderful journey of a love story that was worth fighting for.
