Book Description

An isolated island off the coast of South Carolina, a cursed Celtic symbol, a ghost tour led by a handsome charlatan, and a reporter determined to debunk anything supernatural come together in A Ghostly Charm.
Maddy Saunders has come to McDavid Island on assignment for a new magazine, wondering how she’ll ever rebuild her ruined reputation by writing about ghosts.
Mal Sheridan leads a ghost tour to bring business to the island for his sister’s New Age shop. Business is good as long as no one is looking too closely. When his creative stories start to come true, he has to figure out why there are ghosts where there weren’t before.
Maddy decides to help Mal figure out why this is happening, while fighting her attraction for this inappropriate man. She has to put her faith in Mal, in something she never thought she could believe, to break a curse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining ghost story October 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love ghost stories, especially this time of year, and this one kept me entertained and interested. The book is between novella and novel length, so not too long. The writing is descriptive and the pace is fast, so it's a quick read. I liked the Carolina setting and the ghost tour/magic charm plot. The ghosts that show up to give Maddy and Mal a scare are creepy, but not gory. There are two sex scenes that are fairly graphic (this is a romance, after all), but if you don't care for those scenes, you can skim them and move on to the action. The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is because I felt Maddy fell into bed with Mal too quick. When she sees "ghost groupies" around him on the day they meet, she guesses he's a Casanova type that probably sleeps with some of the women who go on his tours. Then she had sex with him the next day. Even though I realize the author had to rush the "love" scene because of the story's length, Maddy giving in so easily and quickly didn't ring true to me. I would have liked to have had more characterization/back story on Maddy to understand why she'd make that choice. Other than that, if you like plots involving ghosts, you'll enjoy this one.

As we enter the South Carolina Coast we find ourselves ready to go to McDavid Island and become a ghost hunter. With ghost hunting all the rage now this was a fun and spirited story. No pun intended.

Maddy Saunders, for a while had thought about leaving her job as a reporter for a magazine, but when the name was changed to Adventure Magazine she really thought she should have left long ago. Her boss gave her the assignment to go on a Ghost hunting adventure at McDavid Island.

Maddy visits her friends antique shop and find an item that normally she would have purchased after her adventure but instead was drawn to purchase it before she left. She finds that it is connected to the McDavid family and the island.

As she boards the ferry and arrives at the island she looks over the brochure trying to get a feel for the story she needs to write. As she enters the small town she finds it to be quite beautiful and peaceful. Little does she know that is all about to change. Entering a small diner she comes across others that appear to be there for the ghost hunting adventure.

As Kari scopes out the others in the group in walks, this somewhat gorgeous guy who has the Elvis swagger down. He announces that he is Mal Sheirdan tour guide for the ghost hunting adventure. He evens comes with sidekick/partner Justin Stromberg. To make things even more interesting we discover he even has groupies.

As they head out for a night of ghostly fun, you can't help but get caught up in the humor of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read September 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not a big reader of ghost stories, it's true, but with all the hullaballoo about Ghost Hunters I had to pick this book up, and I'm so glad I did. I do most of my reading before bed, but found that this book wasn't conducive to peaceful sleep. It spooked me enough that I had to put it down and read it in the bright daylight.

Maddy Saunders is a writer who's come to debunk a ghost hunting adventure. She doesn't believe in ghosts, so looks for every trick that Ghost Hunters Mal and Justin cook up. Ironically, Mal doesn't believe either ... so when real ghosts appear, things get a little crazy!

Sparks fly between Maddy and Mal anytime they're near each other. Neither is particularly happy about the attraction nor are the ghost hunter groupies who have the hots for Mal (but then, who wouldn't? He oozes sex appeal ala Han Solo - cocky, handsome, and well aware of his good looks but still a decent guy).

As things escalate (both with the ghosts and with Mal and Maddy's relationship) things get crazy, passionate and the pages flew by. How would they fix their predicament? How could they exile the ghosts who had suddenly taken over the island? How would they ever build a solid, lasting relationship with all their differences (not to mention the fact they live so far apart)?

Ms. Fredrick does a stupendous job writing this fast-paces, spine-tingling story. I loved every moment of it from the newlywed ghost who wants a wedding night, to the ex-girlfriend to Justin (who I think needs his own story). Her writing is clear and concise and truly evocative and descriptive. Even better, if you're looking for some heat in your story, she delivers that too, in spades.
