What made me love Hamlet's Ghost was not just the cast of unique and varied characters, but the setting. The connections between the name of the town and the goings on inside the theatre were brilliant and kept me turning pages. I loved the way she tied the past and familiar characters into this novel but still managed to make it feel new. This could easily be read as a standalone novel even without the primer of the previous books.
My favourite character was Crystal. She's strong and independent and full of life and it affects the characters around her. I'd love to know even more about her story. This was a book that I was sorry to see go and it will be difficult to find something else to read after this--but this is the price you pay for reading Jane's work.
If you are tired of reading books where the female characters are all perfect down to the last fake nail, then this is for you. This author values differences between her characters and they are not all cookie cutter shapes that have been done before. She uses real women of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds to fill her pages. I love that.
The love story(ies) are charming and the romance scenes mild enough for those who don't want to jump into the deep end too soon. You get a sense of each character's personality and that of their match before they end up together and things don't always go exactly as one would expect.Read more ›
Rhiannon (Rhi) is an actress and witch who has grown frustrated with overcoming her image as the latter to be taken seriously as the former. After a personal setback, she begins a new life in the small town of Hamlet, where she comes across a charming, but run-down, theater called the Hamlet Majestic and decides to open its doors once again. This is a story not only about Rhi's journey (and mistaken identity love interests!), but also those in the town around her. The people that surround Rhi are so much fun, and I love that each character has their own arc. The townspeople band together to help their own, something you rarely see nowadays, and they really feel like a family of sorts.
The ghost in our story is Kip Daniels, an actor who passed away in a freak accident during the opening night of his production of 'Hamlet'. Kip has been haunting the Hamlet Majestic for decades, and it's only when Rhi arrives that he's able to forge a connection with someone besides himself. Though, let's be honest, the guy is so arrogant and narcissistic that he probably liked being alone with himself. ;)
Crystal, the town psychic, is simply fantastic. She's larger than life, full of cheeky one-liners, and a much better person than me for how she handled certain situations.
There’s a fun love triangle between the town realtor, Annie, and two brothers, Jake & Sam. She has been giving those boys the run-around for years, and it’s comical to watch how it all pans out.Read more ›
Rhi, our strong willed protagonist has fled New York to make a living herself on her own. She settles down in a small town of Hamlet and rents the local theatre to turn it into a full fledged theatre only to find it haunted by an adorable ghost.
Like her previous books, our protagonist and other female characters are the strong at heart yet soft and vulnerable. In fact such characters are inspirational when you are down in dumps.
The writing as could be expected from Jane, was beautiful sans the overdo of the drama element that one can expect in a paranormal romance. Her characters as always speaks volumes. Though I felt with this book ,the female characters completely dominated the whole show. I really couldn’t connect much with the male characters. For instance, our adorable ghost who died mid way during his masterpiece act is the crux of the story whom I couldn’t really connect to. This can possibly because the female characters were rather strong and powerful so much so that they shadowed the male characters.
One seemingly positive attribute in Jane’s story lines is the closure that she gives to all her characters. They all get some closure of sorts. Right from the sidekicks who don’t actually influence the story line to the main characters, they “ ALL” get a closure of sorts. I am not a big fan of closures. Some things are better off without a closure.
My weenie- tiny complaint would be that the story was majorly predictable with few minor truly surprising twists.
VERDICT: Light breezy feel good supernatural read! Go ahead give it a go!
RATING: 3 on 5
