Blog Tour: Unsettled Spirits by Sophie Weeks

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: 5/30/13

Sarah Markham always assumed that the Ivy League was her ticket to a new life. But after graduating from Harvard at the height of the Great Recession, she finds herself with no job offers and not much hope. That all changes when she enters a bookshop owned by Samuel, an eccentric intellectual who offers her not just a job, but also a place to stay. Sarah soon discovers a small catch though: her room is haunted by Lucy Larch, an opinionated and strong-willed ghost from the 1940s. As Sarah tries to help Lucy move on, she meets handsome Irishman Ian Flynn and falls in love, but her insecurities soon threaten every relationship she’s built.

As Sarah grapples with questions of faith, love, and identity, she must learn to embrace not just the spirits of the present, but the haunting pain of the past. Can she accept her past, and more importantly herself, in order to let love in?

My Review:

This is a tad paranormal in the fact that there is a ghost presence, but to me it read more Contemporary. The story itself is deeper than most Paranormal Novels. 

I think it took a bit longer than usual to become invested int the lives of these characters, but once I was, the story flowed effortlessly.  Definitely a great novel for those who are in the mood for something out of the ordinary. This one is unique.
