Scout Lawson is ready for a fresh start and has taken a job as a librarian in Cornwall for a reclusive ex-rock star George WIlder. George has been out of commission since his wife died the year before.
Sparks fly between the two almost immediately, although various things get in their way from assumptions they make about each other to strange things that start happening around the house putting them in danger.
I loved the paranormal element to this novel, it added a new level to the novel above the romance, I wasn't sure what was going to happen or when and just wanted these two characters to fight their way through it. While I loved that they come together and it ramps up the supernatural I found their jump from nothing to trying for a baby a bit odd. It felt like they missed several steps on the relationship ladder, and their families are so cool and relaxed about it.
The climax of the novel is deeply moving, hugely tense and I really didn't see how it was going to work out at all. There's a lot that's not explained but I think with paranormal elements it doesn't need to be, as readers we can accept that things happen for the reasons we are given and that's all we need to know.
Overall, an adorable paranormal romance with lovable characters.
Huge thanks to Tani Hanes for sending me the eBook copy which I have read and reviewed honestly.
Scout is hired by George to organize his personal (and untouched for years) library at his multi million dollar estate. He'd never met her before the hire, and was mistaken on who he was actually taking in. He'd expected a quiet man who'd keep to himself. Scout is far from that, and George is instantly smitten. I love that it takes a while to lead up to their relationship rather than just an instant love type thing.
When strange, scary, and some very heart wrenching things begin to happen around the two, the book unravels into the unexpected. There are some twists that I didn't see coming, and some secrets surface that are much harder to swallow than I pictured going in.
A few things that I really loved about Farraway Mist is the banter. There is loads of personality in this book, especially with George! I love his wit, it's adorable! Also, Tani can really nail a romantic scene! Whew! ...sighs with satisfaction... I wasn't extremely fond of the ending, but ultimately I really enjoyed the read! Tani's writing style is captivating, sophisticated, and impeccable. She has a real talent in painting romance with words!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The story starts off with the protagonist, Scout, arriving at Farraway Mist, where she has accepted a job working in the estate’s library. The owner of the house is George Wilder, a rock star, who now lives alone (except for his two dogs!) after the death of his wife, Tessa Richardson Wilder. After a rocky first few conversations and a fundamental mistake about who Scout is, George and Scout begin to warm up to each other, and a romance ensues. I was quite surprised with the direction their relationship went in, especially so soon, but by the end it all seemed very genuine and fitting.
The paranormal aspect adds to the book nicely, and is in my opinion, secondary to the relationship between Scout and George. I mean, it’s certainly related to their relationship, but its occurrences are fewer than the sweet and tender moments of the couple.
The paranormal events are scary, well-timed and suited to the setting. Although I had an idea of who/what was behind them, the final truth reveal was very complex and well thought out.
I must make an honourable shout-out to Alfred and Sunil, two young boys who do house work and odd jobs for George. They ooze personality and are just the sweetest things! They added a much needed element of humour to the story!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and recommend it for anyone who is looking for a great romance with a paranormal twist.
