I was a little surprised that Quent talked so openly to his friends, Garrick and Thorn, and then to his sisters Grace, Hope and Patience. It was like a teenager talking about some girl he had a crush on, instead of a woman he’d danced with and kissed at a ball, before she disappeared. The wording was kind of teenagerish. Except for the way the chats had struck me it was enjoyable. I did like the paranormal aspect of it.
Overall, this was a very good book and the characters were great too. I loved every one of them except Vicar Southward. He was an A-hole but we were never really told why he disliked Quent so much, or why he constantly yelled at his daughters and niece or why he insisted on complete and total silence in the house. He really was an absolute jerk throughout the entire book. I loved the haunted castle and the “possession,” though. I like anything paranormal, especially ghosts. (Cindy Miles has some awesome Ghost Romances I read over and over again.)
There was no sex in this story but it was such an entertaining story that the lack of sex was fine. However, the word “c*ck” was used, sexually, 2 times, I have no idea why. And there was no swearing.
As to the narration: WOW! The vicar was a little cray-cray and Stevie Zimmerman made him sound just like he should. The men sounded like they should and the women all had their own voices. She read with great emotions, too. SZ did a wonderful job on this book.
I love Ava Stone and Stevie Zimmerman, a guaranteed success! As such I didn't really look at what I was buying and was surprised to back at the haunted castle again. Why I momentarily worried I don't know since I was soon swept into a new mystery while rooting for Lila, an angel, and a love story.
Narrator: Perfection, as always!
Heat Factor: Utterly non existent.
Creditworthy? of course.
