Harley's character was fresh, likable, and sympathetic. I wanted to eat Nolan up with a spoon. Aggie and Angus were precious, as was little Remy. I found them to be well-rounded, with flaws and quirks that made them real.
The ghost angle with Brody was an interesting touch, but I would have enjoyed a little more interaction between his character and Harley. I feel it would have been a bit more mysterious with more cryptic contact.
As for the "whodunit" aspect of the story, I did have it figured out about halfway in. For me, that's not a bad thing, as I spend the rest of the book trying to figure out "how" instead of "who". And the "how" is my reason for four stars instead of five. I feel like it was a little too neat, and not all of my questions were answered. However, I am overly picky when it comes to thrillers.
That being said, I enjoyed this book tremendously. It was an overall great and satisfying read. I became attached to the cast of characters quickly and to Midtown in general. I will definitely be picking up the next installment of this series, and I will be putting J.A. Howell on my must-read author list.
This book was so good...OMG! I started it on a Saturday morning when I had a million and one things to get done, not thinking that I would get sucked in as quickly as I did, but this story grabbed me and didn't let go. So good!
Harley left her abusive, controlling fiance in the middle of the night after drugging him. She hopped on a bus going across the country and randomly chose where she got off. Her first stroke of good luck was wandering into an authentic Irish pub where she befriended the bartender, Aggie. Aggie convinced the bar owner, Nolan, that Harley would be a perfect addition to their wait staff. Next thing to find: a place to live. Harley was amazed when she found the perfect furnished apartment at an unbelievably cheap price, but there was a reason for that which she quickly found out....it was haunted by the previous tenant.
From page one this book captured me. As the reader, you are following Harley's life which is waitressing, painting, and dealing with her apartment, but there are so many questions swirling: What exactly happened that night before she left her fiance? What happened to the man with the green eyes? Is he out to hurt her or is he just trying to reach out to her? What exactly happened to Brody? What happened to Nolan? Is her fiance going to find her?J.A. Howell gives you tiny snippets of information...enough so you are never confused about what's going on, but you definitely don't know the full story. It's suspense at its best and I loved watching all the layers reveal through the story. (As a suspense writer, I am ABSOLUTELY in awe of the way that she tells her stories....so good!)
And that's just everything going on with Harley. The other side is Nolan, the Irish owner of the pub. Almost the entire story is told from Harley's POV, so all you get of him are her observations, but this is a guy sending off mixed signals. One minute, you know that he really wants and is intrigued by her, but the next he suddenly becomes harsh and cold. Eventually you find out exactly what happened to precipitate all these changes, but again the details are revealed really slowly. It should also be noted that Nolan has a brogue, washboard abs, and curly hair...YUMMY!
I truly loved everything about this book. The characters are amazing. The story is riveting. There is the perfect balance of creepiness, suspense and romance. This book has a little bit of everything. I absolutely laughed out loud a few times, but I also cried during one section. It's just an expertly woven story and I can't wait to read more in the series.
But then everything seemed to go her way. She randomly stops at a town and decides it's where her new life will be. She makes no effort to change her appearance or hide her identity - so was she really escaping an abuser? Within 24 hours of her new life, she finds a job, an apartment and a new friend. A bit unrealistic. There was no tension or conflict to keep me interested, which is a shame because I think the story had potential.
Writing style was a bit too much like a friend relating a movie they saw on TV the night before. I never really got into the main character's head, which for me, to enjoy a story I need that.
Anyway, sorry, couldn't finish it.
