Sarah Gray is the present occupant of this cottage. Things appear to be quiet and peaceful until the past collides with the present involving an angry ghost who is the deceased spouse of the previous owner, Ruth Winn Carter. When Sarah finds a hidden tool box containing letters from Ruth to a man she loved, Frank Everly, Sarah feels compelled to learn more about this mysterious woman and her lover and this disgruntled ghost.
This story is full of richly woven characters along with a creative and beautifully written storyline. I was mesmerized by the way the author incorporated the two fascinating stories together making for a thoroughly enjoyable reading experience. I loved every minute of it!
I look forward to more books by this incredibly talented storyteller.
The story has well developed, relatable characters. Let’s see who they are:
First, I must say that Ruth’s heart-breaking story was my favorite part. Ruth who, “After a year of looking for love, or even the occasional tender word, any vague thoughts of a happy ending for herself had vanished, and a tired sense of resignation had settled over her,” makes the worst choice in her life – Loyd Carter.
Sarah Gray a thirty-five-year-old library cataloging and research assistant, fed up with her boring job, leaves her town and moves to a dream like cabin in Wake-Robin Ridge. This is how the present day part of the story begins.
Lloyd Carter, a mean-eyed slab of a man with a well-earned reputation for violence and several run-ins with the law. If there was one thing Lloyd Carter loved in this life, it was his big, fire-engine red Impala
MacKenzie Cole, Tall, maybe 6’3”, with glossy black hair curling slightly over his ears. . . . he was strikingly good looking, with a sense of quiet strength about him. “Mysterious Mountain Man,” as Jenna called him.
Add to them Handsome the muddy, half-starved little mess, the kitten Sarah discovers the very first day she moves to the cabin, and Rosheen, Mac’s three-year-old Irish wolfhound. Even General Penny, Ruth’s dachshund who keeps her good company along her lonely years. Thus the distribution is complete.
The cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains is the channel connecting past and present; Ruth with her pain, tragedy and love and compassionate Sarah with her dreams and newly found love.
There were chapters where I went back and read some paragraphs once again. I was like a kid with a candy. I savored every word, especially the vivid scenery description.
Will Sarah manage to find out what lies behind Mac’s odd change of behavior towards her? Will she discover who is Miz Winn and what does the ghost want? Read the book and you will be rewarded with a suspenseful romantic mystery.
Wake-Robin Ridge is a masterpiece of good storytelling with meticulous attention to detail, a well-plotted tale of romance and intrigue. Marcia’s writing and descriptions are brilliant and make you feel like you can actually picture Wake-Robin Ridge and the characters in your head. You will feel as if you are watching a movie. This is definitely a "can’t put down" book.
Romance, suspense and some supernatural elements made it exactly this - a "couldn't put it down" book for me.
This is the second book I've read by this author and I'm officially a fan. Both books have featured strong, independent women who are mature and self-sufficient. This story has features two such women. One of them doesn't start out strong and independent, but by the end of the story, we learn she's been the strongest of all the characters.
This is a story of two couples with distinctly different relationships. There are very emotional tragedies for each, yet their stories are unique. One of the qualities I admire about this author is her ability to give each character a very authentic voice and a natural dialog style that makes them seem like real people. Men sound like men and women sound like women. It seems simple, but lots of authors never seem to master the differences in dialog between men and women.
This book has elements of light paranormal, suspense and lots of romance with the heat being mostly implied. I usually like my books a little spicier, but I got so emotionally invested in these characters I didn't miss the spice.
Strongly recommended for fans of Romance, ghost stories and North Carolina, which is prominently featured throughout the book.
They both find love, will either of them get to have a happily ever after or lose the man they love? Will the evil rest or continue to haunt them? Definitely a well written and beautiful book (the scenery is vividly described) even with mystery and murder within the plot you will enjoy reading this story.
