I am honoured to be part of the WOW! Women of Writing Blog Tour for Amy S. Cutler’s paranormal romance novel A Shadow of Love, which I read and am now reviewing.
(Please note: I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.)
My Review:I was intrigued by the premise of A Shadow of Love – an abused woman buys an old farmhouse in the country yo start over and is haunted by the house’s ghost.
It was a quick read, and an enjoyable one. I found the developing love story between Annabella and Christian, the ghost, to be somewhat rushed and because they could only meet in dreams, to be limited.
Yet, Annabella reaches out to others and is able to find love.
I recommend this book. It was an enjoyable, quick read . I especially loved the poetry throughout the novel.
About the Book
When Annabelle flees her abusive husband and moves into an 1860’s farmhouse, she soon learns that she is not alone; she shares her home with Christian, the ghost of a poet who killed himself in 1917. Christian, wanting nothing but solitude, tries to scare Annabelle away, but once they come together while she is dreaming, they fall in love. The clock is ticking for Christian, for moments after his hanging his fiance magically cursed his spirit to be stuck on earth for one hundred years, and his time is almost up.
With Annabelle’s ex threatening her and the spirit she has fallen in love with on the verge of disappearing, Annabelle becomes obsessed with staying with Christian, and will do anything to be with him.
Being in love with a ghost is bad enough, but for Annabelle, discovering that her true love will be crossing over at any moment pushes her over the edge of reckless behavior.
