After Clara Espy's husband suddenly dies of a heart attack she is forced with having to go back to work. She chooses to buy the local antique shop in town. While fixing up the shop she falls and hits her head, unlocking a gift of psychometry. When she touches certain objects she receive messages from people who have died.
I thought the subject matter was presented well, and the supernatural aspect was very believable. Although listed in the thriller genre it never felt like a thriller to me. I think it fits better in the paranormal category. I would have enjoyed more suspense connected to the supernatural, though.
This was an easy read. I never felt like I was in Clara's shoes. However, I kind of liked the observer aspect as some supernatural books can make it too real, if you know what I mean. It could have used another round of editing, but overall Ghostly Antiques is a good book for fans of the supernatural.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The story presented by Jennifer Robins is highly intriguing, allowing the reader to plunge into a world that few of us ever consider. The topic is well researched and informative. I found myself wanting to know more every time I tried to put the book down.
Ghostly Antiques will definitely give anyone interested in the supernatural something to think about. I look forward to reading the sequel.
