Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

After years of writing historicals, Wolf (The Poisoned Serpent) leaps into the contemporary romantic suspense arena with this smart, compelling read. Unlike some who have floundered making the jump, Wolf delivers characters who, for the most part, move easily in their modern skins, and she wisely incorporates her historical strengths through Regency-era ghosts. When American movie star Tracy Collins first sees the English estate of Silverbridge, she's jolted by an odd sense of recognition. Even more powerful is her immediate attraction to the current earl, Harry Oliver. Neither experience, however, prepares her for the star-crossed ghost lovers who bear an eerie resemblance to her and Harry. Telling himself he's too busy to deal with a movie star, Harry tries to ignore his feelings for Tracy as he fends off a developer's bid to buy a portion of his ancestral estate. But when suspicious fires break out and Harry's brake lines are cut, the two must join forces to discover the villain. The novel's weaknesses lie mostly with Tracy, who favors such clunkers as "As I have discovered, to my sorrow," and a too-British use of "ghastly." Her contentment to call a man her own age "my lord" also rings false. But Wolf certainly hasn't plunged in over her head with this shift. As always, she paints both conflict and setting with a sure hand.

Joan Wolf's Silverbridge is a great book. Tracy Collins, a down to earth movie star, goes to England to film a movie that is set amongst the splendor of the Regency era. Since this is her first foray into a drama or a period piece it is an important movie for her and she wants to do her best. The problem is she keeps seeing ghosts - who look remarkably like herself and the present lord of the manor, Harry Oliver -- on the his ancestral estate, Silverbridge, which they are filming on.
Tracy is having trouble getting over a tragedy in her past and Harry is wary of being associated with an American actress after a bad episode with a Model who overdosed and implicated him in her death. Karma is in overdrive though and these two are destined to be together.
It was a fast read with a few unusual twists and was a pleasure to read.
When a favorite author jumps into new sub-genre, like Joan Wolf has in Silverbridge, I am always a bit leery. I want to support the author, but the likelihood of the book being even close to the caliber of her regular sub-genre is low at best, since it usually takes an author two to three books to get the hang of the new style of writing - if that ever happens at all. I am happy to say that this is not the case with Joan Wolf's new novel Silverbridge and I highly recommend it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
American movie star Tracy Collins lands the opportunity to play opposite Shakespearean actor Jon Melbourne in a Regency film. A veteran of romantic comedies, she relishes this new challenge. Her blockbuster name assures that Americans will buy tickets, but critics suggest she cannot handle the serious drama. But drama captured on film soon echoes the drama of her personal life when she becomes a guest of Harry Oliver, the lord of Silverbridge. Tracy comes to realize that visions of the past and the dangers of the present are somehow connected.
Harry only allows the filming of the Regency film on his property because he needs the income to support the outlandish costs of maintaining the Silverbridge estate. Between the rules for maintaining the historical site and death taxes, Harry struggles to retain ownership, even as his younger brother demands that he sell a large part of the land to a real estate mogul intent upon displacing cattle with a golf course and a luxury resort. Harry's younger sister Meg becomes the focal point that initially draws Tracy and Harry together. When Tracy becomes his guest, she encourages Meg's interesting in film making as a way to lead the teenager toward recovery from anorexia.
As a new fan of Joan Wolf, I found her characters warm and engaging. Further, SILVERBRIDGE melds a number of elements from contemporary romantic suspense to paranormal. Indeed, the supernatural elements move the plot along nicely without overshadowing the subplots of romance and suspense. While some readers may be uncomfortable with such an unexpected combination elements, the overall effect is surprisingly successful. Further, Wolf's understanding of Meg's struggle with anorexia lends the novel a convincing note that nicely contrasts the supernatural elements. Tracy and Harry likewise become appealing characters with their provocative romance. Indeed, SILVERBRIDGE provides very pleasant entertainment and comes highly recommended.

The American movie star, Tracie Collins, travels to England to begin shooting her new movie. The setting for the movie is the majestic estate of Silverbridge. The last thing that Tracie had on her mind when she went to England was falling in love. But from the moment she met Harry Oliver, the Earl of Silverbridge, the feeling of déjà vu was too overpowering to ignore. Lord Silverbridge had no intentions in becoming involved with anyone - especially an American movie star. What, then, was this strange and intense attraction he felt towards Tracie?
The developing love story between Tracy and Harry in itself is enough to keep one's eyes glued to the book. However, Joan Wolf goes one step further in this novel - she not only throws in a fascinating mystery but also the love story of a long ago English governess, Isabel, and the former Earl of Silverbridge, Charles Oliver, as ghosts from the past. Tracie Collins is the bridge between the past and the present.
Joan Wolf ingeniously combines contemporary romance with historical romance in SILVERBRIDGE. The combination of the love story from the present and the love story from the past makes for a very intriguing read...

This one is OK. That being said the reason I wasn't crazy about this one is that this story has been written before, by other authors, and no I don't remember who at this exact moment, but the plot is predictable, the characters standard, and it's not much of a mystery. It's not one of those books you can't put down, more like-I guess I have to finish this so I can pass it on.

Popular American romantic comedy actress Tracy Collins is taking quite a risk filming Jealousy, a Regency era psychological drama. Tracy is on location at the prestigious SILVERBRIDGE estate though she stays in a hotel in the nearby town. Tracy befriends shy anorexic Meg Oliver, younger sister of the owner of SILVERBRIDGE, Harry who reluctantly rents his place due to the exorbitant expense to keep his heritage proper.

A fire destroys the hotel so Meg offers rooms in SILVERBRIDGE to Tracy and her costar, Shakespearean actor Jon Melbourne. When Tracy meets Harry, she finds him attractive, but abhors his boorish behavior. As she stays in his residence, Tracy suffers feelings of déjà vu and visions of ghosts. On top of her strange reactions, someone tries to destroy the movie and only Harry can keep her safe, but who will protect Tracy's heart from her beloved aristocrat?

SILVERBRIDGE is an exciting contemporary romance with paranormal and suspense elements. The three prime subplots are well written and actually tie together in a cohesive manner. At the same, the triad plus two lesser subplots never allow any key theme to take charge of the tale as if Joan Wolf could not decide between suspense (movie sabotage), paranormal (ghosts), or a contemporary romance. Still the lead couple is a delightful duo and the tale will satisfy most of the audience.
