Synopsis: Jobless and forced home to Wisconsin, journalist Sabrina Monroe can tolerate reunions with frenemies and kisses from old boyfriends, but not the literal ghosts that greet her in this heartwarming tale of the power of love and connection from acclaimed author Amy E. Reichert.
For Sabrina Monroe, moving back home to the Wisconsin Dells–the self-described Waterpark Capital of the World–means returning to the Monroe family curse: the women in her family can see spirits who come to them for help with unfinished business. But Sabrina’s always redirected the needy spirits to her mom, who’s much better suited for the job. The one exception has always been Molly, a bubbly rom-com loving ghost, who stuck by Sabrina’s side all through her lonely childhood.
Her personal life starts looking up when Ray, the new local restaurateur, invites Sabrina to his supper club, where he flirts with her over his famous Brandy Old-Fashioneds. He’s charming and handsome, but Sabrina tells herself she doesn’t have time for romance–she needs to focus on finding a job. Except the longer she’s in the Dells, the harder it is to resist her feelings for Ray. Who can turn down a cute guy with a fondness for rescue dogs and an obsession with perfecting his fried cheese curds recipe?
When the Dells starts to feel like home for the first time and with Ray in her corner, Sabrina begins to realize that she can make a difference and help others wherever she is. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: This was fun and I'm glad I got to read it. I really liked this paranormal rom-com. It was cute, it was fun, and it was just what I needed. It's one of those books that I look forward to picking up. It put a smile on my face and I just couldn't stop reading.
I love a story with a paranormal twist, so I was so excited to learn that Sabrina can see dead people. She's supposed to help them with their unfinished business, it's a family curse. Sabrina is really not the most gung-ho when it comes to ghosts. Why does she want to solve their problems when she's got her own life to deal with.
I also liked the setting for the story of Wisconsin, or more specifically, the Wisconsin Dells. It's a fun place. It seems crazy that it is the Waterpark Capital of the World. I just think of cold and winter when it comes to Wisconsin, but I know they have summer. Anyway, it was just a fun place to be in. It was its own character in the story.
The romance was super cute and I liked it. It does start off pretty insta-lovey, but it was cute, so I can forgive that. I like that Ray loves food, cooks food, and is trying his best to win Sabrina over. I just liked following the romantic journey.
This story was very cute and I had a great time reading it. I'd definitely recommend this. Bring some happiness to your life.
Amy Reichert earned her MA in Literature from Marquette University, and honed her writing and editing skills as a technical writer (which is exactly as exciting as it sounds). As a newly minted member of the local library board, she loves helping readers find new books to love. She’s a life-long Wisconsin resident with (allegedly) a very noticeable accent, a patient husband, and two too-smart-for-their-own-good kids. When time allows, she loves to read, collect more cookbooks than she could possibly use, and test the limits of her DVR.
