Book Description

Rhiannon Dee, a gorgeous witch, moves to a country town to reopen a theater and finds herself torn between the man who owns it, and his father who haunts it.


Kip Daniels has been haunting the Hamlet Majestic for thirty dull years, ever since the stage roof collapsed on him during what was meant to be his piece de resistance: his performance of Hamlet. All he really wants is to get to the end of the play, but that won't happen while the theater stands abandoned and boarded up. He's resigned himself to an endless limbo ... until Rhiannon Dee moves to town to bring the theater back to life.


Rhi has fled a failed life in New York. She can't find work as an actress. She's overshadowed by her mother who has a hit TV show about witchcraft. Rhi is sick of being seen as a witch and intends to turn her back on the craft. But she quickly discovers she can't escape her gifts, especially when she needs to use them to help one very sexy but sad ghost cross over. Surrounded by new friends and supportive townsfolk, Rhi breathes new life into the Hamlet Majestic, and helps Kip accept his death.


Hamlet's Ghost is a story about those moments in life that define us, and how to truly move forward we must find peace with the past.


Hamlet's Ghost is the third book in the Shakespeare Sisters series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great performance! September 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Much like Jane Tara's other books, this is filled with magic, outstanding characters that are easily loved and quirky, fun writing. I love Jane's stories for their ability to take you away from daily life and make you feel as if you are somewhere else. I also love her sassy writing full of quips that make you giggle.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another whimsical delight from Jane Tara August 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When a book contains so many of my favorite story elements - theater, Shakespeare, ghosts, witches, and the whimsical writing of Jane Tara - it's a no-brainer that I'd be counting the days until I could pick this one up. And, as usual, I wasn't disappointed.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Breezy feel good read! July 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Having read Jane’s previous books I pretty much know what to expect. Her writing is something that I am extremely comfortable with. Her books will make you think effortlessly and make you feel good about yourself after you finish it.

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
