Review

Sweet-Sexy-NERDY-Seduction Scene--complete with science-y words and concepts. I'm telling you--you're going to love it. - Novel Truths

A Gift of Ghosts is a paranormal love story written in a fresh, lively style. It's an easy read and light-hearted despite a plot that touches on drug overdose and suicide. - Fairy Hedgehog

This is a cool little world to inhabit. I liked how the characters were friendly and likeable and you just liked to hang out with them. - Speed Reading Book Nerd Reviews

I loved this book! So much so, I might read it again. There was so much going on and even a few surprises, especially for a ghost story, and I had a really hard time putting it down. - Beth's Reviews and Promotions

This book is a damn fine read.  I loved it from start to finish and can't wait to read the sequel. - Laurie K, Stellar Four

I was talking out loud to the author near the end, warning her of dire consequences if she went in a certain direction ... It's a nice little feel-good fantasy. - Mean Fat Old Bat Reads

Akira Malone is young, attractive, and a practical, rational-thinking high-energy physicist... who happens to have this one little quirk. She sees ghosts. Talks to them, too. And yeah, they talk back.

When a little slip exposes that fact to her colleagues, it looks like its a career-ender.

Then, out of the blue, she receives a job offer from a enigmatic but well-connected research firm based in a sleepy Florida town. It's like tossing a lifering to drowning person, and she accepts with some trepidations.

What happens next in this wonderfully-crafted page-turner will keep you reading way past your bedtime, unwilling to put it down 'til you get to the end.

For Akira, a sharp detour in her well-planned-out future opens the door to a new life, a new love, new friends (some living, some dead), and an astonishing new purpose.

Sarah Wynde is an amazing new talent, and I can't wait to see what she follows up with.

"A Gift of Ghosts" is a fun, sometimes irreverent, very smart and wholly charming and entertaining read.

Sarah Wynde embraces a style not often seen in today's fiction. The prose is tight and keeps moving, never bogging down with needless description. Instead the reader is given enough detail to clearly imagine the story, and the latitude to see the author's world as she will. The plot is a finely crafted, elegant piece of work that insistently demands you keep turning pages.

Not your usual romance, paranormal or otherwise, "Gift" stands out by avoiding tired tropes and cardboard cut-out characters. They obey their own motivations, and feel as though they believe themselves to be the stars of the piece, fully alive and colorful, even the ones that are dead. I found myself wishing to have a full story for almost every one of them.

Even so, Akira's story will keep your attention and even catch you by surprise. The last quarter of the book demands to be read in one sitting.

Pick this one up. It's well worth your time.

I really enjoyed this book - hard to put down. One of the best books I've read in awhile. Very frustrated that the sequel is not available in the near future.
I won't give a plot summary as many other's have.

Pluses: Well written and well edited. A unique and different plotline in paranormal romance (I'm so sick of vampires and heroines in spike heels that slay evil creatures.) Main characters are well written. Fun humor. The discussion of physics as it applies to $ex was fabulous.

Minuses: Minor charachters are not as well fleshed out. I wanted more details on the interesting town and it's inhabitants. I wanted to see more of the family interactions.

Romance: Well done. The author avoids most of the major annoyances found in bad romance (the major misunderstanding, the love triangle, etc.) The $ex scenes are well written, often with humor. Not explicit. Not a major part of the book. Probably OK for older/sophisticated teens.

I absolutly recommend this book. It's a fun, light hearted read.

Nothing irritates me more than reading a book full of typos and grammatical errors. These days, everyone fancies themselves a writer, and let's face it...only a select few really have the talent and skills. I stumbled upon Sarah Wynde's book a few days ago and took a chance on it. I am so glad I did. The writing is excellent, the story is fast-paced and captivating, and best of all...no typos or glaring grammatical errors! Okay, maybe I am a little (smirk) uptight about the spelling, punctuation, and grammar. However, I believe Sarah has an amazing talent and I look forward to adding more of her books to my library in the coming years!

This was a very interesting storyline with the heroine's ability to see and talk to ghosts. But quite honestly I enjoyed the paranormal aspect way more than the romance aspect of this book. I found the love story between Zane and Akira a little awkward at times - especially the way their sexual relationshp started - they went from almost non-existent relationship lovers about 1/3 of the way through the book out of nowhere. And I couldn't understand why Akira wouldn't tell Zane about the dangers of "bad ghosts". He already knew about her ability and was super accepting of it. It didn't make sense to me that she wouldn't open up to him about it and he wouldn't be curious about knowing everything there was to know about seeing and speaking to ghosts. But with that said, the book was interesting and held my attention. It gets a little trippy near the end but hey, its a paranormal story, so it's all in good fun. It's worth reading on a rainy afternoon!

Honestly, I couldn't finish the book after about 35%. The "6 weeks later" after absolutely nothing happened in the first few chapters was jarring, but then it immediately flashed back to the first few days where it was before. Some scenes were wordy and overly descriptive for my taste. Plus that hint of romance buzzing... pass.

What I also found extremely odd was the feel of the town. I was thinking "hmmm a remote town that no one knows about with a bunch of odd scientists and doctors running around.... kinda reminds me of that show Eureka." Imagine my surprise when the company with government contracts is called "General Directions" ... or "GD" for short. Then there's one of the strong characters named Zane, also from Eureka. Maybe it was an odd coincidence, but it was enough for me to not want to read any more.
