I read this book in one day could not put it down. I personally think that Belinda needs to be with Frankie he is her best friend and she loves him. Whats up on the handsome stranger appearing (Conner? Now he is leaving too. Mara needs to leave Belinda alone she has serious issues LOL My opinion may change cause I know there are more books it can't end like this Oh and doesn't Connor sound like Darius "I don't want you to dissapear" ooooh I don't know if I would trust him.

It is a tangled romance between two guys and a girl who are possed at times.
I do admit thier were times in the novel that I got twisted and lost for a short time.
Its a very clean romance.
Belinda is a 16 year old girl who's best friend is Frankie.
carrier spirit Mara posses at time Belinda she has been trying for over 300 years to get back to a human body of her own.
Mara helps Belinda to meet Conor 17 year old who goes to private school. Mara takes over Belinda when things get aukward for h

To read my full review:

This novel was completely unique and a hundred percent awesome! I loved every minute of it, and the best part, in my opinion, was the creation of the spirit realm. It’s such a cool idea, and I loved the immense detail Welti pays to the creation of this alternate world we cannot see. Getting to know Mara’s previous identities, as well as those of some of the other characters we meet from the spirit realm, was interesting, and I love n

Having had the good fortune to interact with author T.S. Welti, I was curious to gain some insight into her work. From the very first page of Parallel Spirits, it's obvious that T.S. has a unique way of bringing a story to life. Told from the perspectives of two young women, the reader is taken into the thoughts of these characters and allowed to see the world through their eyes. This manner of storytelling allows the narrators to both show and tell at once, propelling the story along and also s ...more

This was an interesting book. First we have Belinda, a young girl who doesn’t have a boyfriend even though her best friend is in love with her. Then we have Frankie, Belinda’s best friend who has grown up with her and is in love with her. Then we have the love triangle in young Conor. Now to confuse matters even more we must add in Mara, Darius, Tuket and things get really out of control. However the author manages the multiple storylines and multiple love triangles.

We immediately get sucked in

This was a great read! I loved how T.S. Welti put her spin on spirits when one dies. The romance in this story was sweet, I found myself smiling whenever Connor touched, smiled or kisses Belinda ever so gently. Frankie's character was great, I loved the relationship between Belinda and him. They were best friends, but so much more. I haven't completely decided who I would want for Belinda to end up with, but I really liked the chemistry between her and Connor. I hope to hear more from this autho ...more

“They say love is blind, but they’re wrong. Love is the harshest light shined on every insecurity, every weakness, every broken promise.” This is the opening for T. S. Welti’s “Parallel Spirits and the wonderment of the author’s words continue throughout the story.
Welti’s talent shines through each and every page. It is brilliantly written and it has a unique storyline. Any reader who enjoys a great story, whether they are a paranormal fan or not, surely will enjoy “Parallel Spirits”. I look fo
This book was far from the normal supernatural/love story. I loved the way different people and times come together to make a story. The friendship between Frankie and Belinda is the kind that true love is made from. How she will ever choose between Frankie and Conor is beyond me. I can't wait to read what happens next, as they all move on to the next phase in their lives. The end of the book truly left me wanting to start the next right away.
A very good clean romance novel with a twist. If you think having two guys fighting for the love of a girl is complicated wait until you read this one.

This story takes the reader into the mortal and the spirit world in a complicated love story. Love is not so simple and finding it might be worth more than a soul.

I truly enjoyed reading this book.

Young love / old hates
What a lovely book with many twists and turns that aren't expected and an interesting take on the spirit world. I enjoyed to see the different relationships in Belinda's life grow. The end of the book was happy, but not the usual sappy kind. I can really recommend this book.
I was a little lost in the beginning but as the book progressed you could understand it more. Great Read!
Parallel Spirits was a book that had me turning pages to try and work out what was happening, in all the right ways. There was some mystery surrounding some of the characters that is revealed as you read, with certain "carrier spirits" existing hundreds of years before the main characters were born and the order all of this is revealed in. All of the interactions between living and spirit, between friends and between romantic partners were enjoyable to read.

My biggest complaint here was the fact

I really liked the premise of this book as it is a subject that I have thought about before. What happens to a spirit that has been shattered or torn from their body too soon and unable to make its way back. I am a big fan of T.S. Welti's work I really enjoy her writing style, her charecters are flawed and relatable. I enjoyed the interactions between Mara and Belinda as they grow to know each other and reveal Mara's intentions, fears and insecurities. The realationship between Belinda and Frank ...more

I received this book free from the author through my Goodreads book club, in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. All thoughts and conclusions are my own.
Belinda and Frankie are best friends, and have been best friends since they were children. As they've gotten older, their relationship has changed - but neither is really sure exactly how. Enter the carrier spirit Mara, who invades Belinda's body on a quest to make her fall in love with newcomer Conor; all in order to help Mara regain her h

I received this book from the author free of charge in a goodreads giveaway and I am so glad I did! I love the premise of the story- it's so unique and I give her ”mad props” (lol) for thinking up something like that. The characters were dynamic, flawed, and totally relatable. There were plenty of twists and turns that I SO did not see coming and I loved that. The only issue I had with this book is the ending. Now, let me clarify what I mean here- I am fully aware that sometimes what you want to ...more
Quick and Dirty:

-Good pace, easily get caught up in the story.

-Interesting characters and interactions - love quadrangle...of sorts.

-HORRIBLE ending, not like "oh I didn't like how it ended", more like the author took a butchers cleaver and said I want to end it....HERE and added in a few sentences at the cut off just so it HAD an ending.

Long and Wordy:

To read the long rambling version of my review check out my blog on tumblr:
or blogger:
I enjoyed this book. I liked the story and the characters. I found the story to be intriguing especially with the interactions between Mara and Belinda. Both Mara and Belinda are in need of healing in one way or another and it's wonderful actually reading them as they begin to heal. However, a twist happens when another spirit possesses the boy Belinda comes to like and we see love in every form rather good or bad.

I would highly recommend this book if you liked The Host by Stephenie Meyer and/o
I am really enjoying this book. Easy read. I enjoy the characters and love the pace of the book. Just an fun book.
