In GHOST TOUCH, by Author La Dragoni, Tamara believes in ghosts. In fact, she has proof they exist. Every night ghosts appear in her barn, hundreds, thousands of them. It isn’t bad enough that she’s still grieving over her mother’s death a few months earlier, she has to find a way to get rid of the ghosts. Between having to deal with the ghosts, falling for Cal, a cowboy ghost, and discovering that Dex, the live guy she works with at her job, is rather appealing too, Tamara has plenty of trouble.
The author does a nice job describing Tamara’s confused state of mind as she struggles with decisions of what to do. I could picture the ghosts as they swarmed out of the barn. Shudder. Not a pretty sight. However, I kind of agreed with Tamara that the cowboy ghost, with his polite way of talking was nice, even though he was skinless, just bones, and had a cold touch. Perhaps this is a reminder that the outward appearance of a person is not as important as what’s in their heart. I really liked Dex and hoped things would work out for Tamara and him. No, I’m not telling.
When the unexpected happens, Tamara’s life gets really interesting. I enjoy a book that makes me look at life and people in a different way. GHOST TOUCH does just that. I’m looking forward to more from La Dragoni.

Ok. This book. This apparently is not the original cover, and if I had based it off the original, I probably never would have requested it.
Yes, one of the main character’s is a ghost, but I didn’t know he was a freakin skeleton! Not as romantic if you ask me, and I can see why someone said, “Maybe we should do a cover change?” Yep, good idea…because if I saw THAT on my bookshelf I would probably delete the file for fear of nightmares.
Above we have the pretty hands reaching towards each other with a misty background, and it’s a beautiful idea that one would love a ghost.
Yes, a beautiful “idea.”
Tamara is a technical writer who recently lost her mom. At 19, she runs her family’s farm all by herself…and she has recently been plagued by nightmares. Nightmares involving disfigured ghouls trying to chase her and grab her. When she goes out to the barn one night to investigate a noise, she comes to find that her nightmares have come to life: there is a real-life portal in her barn and ghosts of all kinds are spilling out into her backyard.
As she’s freaking out (as I imagine anyone would when seeing a pool of ghosts in your yard), a skeletal man wearing a cowboy hat introduces himself as Cal. Unsure of his past and reason for not crossing like the other ghosts, he has been around this Ghost group for awhile. They have 15 minutes a night to essentially come out of the vortex and, I don’t know, “stretch their legs,” and Tamara doesn’t understand why her barn, why she personally, has been picked as a local “haunt” for the ghosts. (Get it? Haunt?)
But Cal knows why: Tamara has the Ghost Touch: she can see and communicate with them, in hopes of helping them cross to the other side. But Tamara doesn’t know how to do that, and either does Cal. But as they spend more time together, Tamara is drawn to Cal and his kind and gentle disposition (yes, she seriously starts to fall in love with a skeleton! I know!!)
When Dex, the dressed-down hunky coworker, finds out about Tamara’s ghost infestation, he pulls a ghostbusters and decides he wants to help. They together must find a want to help Cal and the others to cross, or they’ll be stuck like this forever. The only problem? Maybe Tamara isn’t so eager to let Cal go…
What did I just read? This was a YA/NA paranormal romance, and though the story is written well (no typos really and very clear writing), and though I actually cried at the end (what can I say? I’m a sucker for a love story), this was a strange read.
We never really know why or how the vortex is there. We never know why there’s a time limit. We do learn some other “Ghost facts according to Dragoni,” and a lot of other spiritual stuff is discussed in the book…but it’s too short and too obvious how the book will end, and that’s not what I was looking for. I wanted some cute ghost love story like my fantasy books (since I love them) to read and gush over. I only read paranormal bc it’s usually extremely similar to fantasy. It was a cute little story with some feels from Tamara, but we never really get attached to either of the men in her life, who fight over Tamara like a side of meat.
I didn’t dislike it, but I didn’t love it either. Once again it was a meh story with a nice fluffy theme and some sad stuff at the end. Which as you know is not normally my cup o tea. I probably would have ended it much differently, and maybe that’s why i wasn’t thrilled with it. Who knows?
So all in all, for being 140 pages, I give Ghost Touch ★★★☆☆. Meh.
Dex is Tamara's coworker. She enlists his help after being caught tired all the time since the night the ghosts would come out every night at 1:30 every morning for 15 min. She learned she could help them but she didn't know how or why she even could. Cal in his cowboy clothes and his skeletal remains with an earthly smell seem to relax Tamara. She finds she can touch him. And as days pass she sees that her touch makes him more corpeal and takes some energy from her. She doesn't seem to mind. But Dex, well he minds. Although Tamara is just not really focused enough to see it! Now she has two love interests.
It really isn't till the end do you find out whom she chooses and what happens to all these other ghosts- both good and bad.
I totally believed it could happen in the story. I got sucked into this train of thought and loved how it ended. I read that the author is making a series of this topic. I'm excited to read those too. The story sucked me right in and I read it all in a few hours straight! I loved her writing and was able to see and smell things in my head with her descriptions. The romance is really a backburner to the story.
If you like ghosts, hauntings, grief, finding love and seeing different forms of it, dogs, cows, horses, weddings, coworkers, than this might be for you.
