I went into Forevermore hoping for a cute and light read, and I was not disappointed. This novel is adorably sweet and touching. The characters are well-developed, the setting is amazing, and the world-building is top-notch. Miles is a wonderful writer, and the prose flowed nicely. The pacing is spot-on, and the plot kept me hooked until the very end. If you're looking for a light, happy, YA Paranormal Romance, then this book is for you.

Ivy is one of the most likable heroines I've ever read. Sh

”Be happy while you’re living, for you’re a long time dead.”- Scottish Proverb

Setting:Glenmorrag, Scotland; 2013

Coverly Love?:I shouldn't like this cover. I mean, it's clearly photoshopped to the point of being cheesy. But for some unexplainable reason, I really like it. It's so hard to do a cover dealing with ghosts, since you have to insert a person who's not supposed to be there. The publishers did a really good job with this one though, and the character impersonators make such a cute coup

Honestly, it isn't that hard to get me to read a book. FOREVERMORE had me hooked from the back blurb and cover promising a Scottish castle and a ghost. Cindy Miles, an adult romance author making her YA debut, delivers everything one could hope from a Scottish castle-set ghost romance. It's good, cheesy fun.

Violin prodigy Ivy Calhoun moves with her mother to Glenmorrag, the home of her stepfather Niall. And Ivy isn't that opposed to Scotland (which, among other things, offers excellent music opp

Ah, the quintessential love story. This is the Hershey’s chocolate bar. It is the song that makes you grin, pump up the volume and dance. It is, in a word, awesome.

Ripped from her home in sultry South Carolina to start a new life in an ancient Scottish castle, Ivy exhibits courage and strength as she grimly strives to accept her fate. This reader couldn’t help but fall in love with this spunky, violin-wielding character. She is pretty much everything I wanted to be as a teen-aged girl. Her admi

Hot Scottish ghosts? I am intrigued.
Thanks Oda!

Solid 3-star. Fun to read, decent mystery and nice, non-aggravating romance. Always enjoy a stand-alone, too, though the resolution here felt too fast/too easy.

I received Forevermore as an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Ivy and her mother step into a mysterious world when they move to Scotland to live with Ivy's new stepfather Niall. Immediately, Ivy senses that something is amiss, especially when her step-grandmother is less than pleased to meet her.

The setting of the book is unusual and really donates an air of mystery to the ghostly encounters that Ivy faces throughout the novel. Who doesn't love the idea of a gloomy castle, nestled at

Amazon lists the target audience for this book as in the 12 and up range. I can see some points where it would be more to the younger end of that range, and some where it would reach to the older end of that range.

Let's talk about that cover. It is kind of eerie, creepy like, isn't it? But The blue eyes on Ivy, they reach right into the heart of the reader, touching on your soul and grabbing ahold of you.

This book was immediately fascinating to me. A book about an American girl who is transplan

Wow! I was not expecting to love that so much but I did! It was mysterious, the romance was beautiful and the setting of the Highlands Scotland was stunning! The plot and setting of a castle in Scotland really gave the book a fairly tale aspect that I absolutely loved. I also really loved how they spoke like they actually do in Scotland for exactly saying "Aye" instead of yes.. It really helped bring out there accents and I could literally hear it in my head.
It was definitely a light fun p

Ivy Calhoun’s mother has just married a Scottish laird and now they are moving to his castle. When she arrives she finds the castle and the countryside to be spooky and the welcome from her stepfather’s grandmother’s reception is cold and even hostile. Then Ivy starts hearing voices telling her to go away, sees things floating, and she is even pushed and choked by an unseen force. Who or what wants her to leave? When Ivy meets Logan, a ghost who hangs around the castle she doesn’t know if he is ...more

After Ivy's mother found love again with Niall MacAlister, a Scottish Laird, they married and Niall brought them back to his home country in Scotland where they actually get to live in an an old creepy castle on the Glenmorrag estate.
Complete with gargoyles, servants and screaming peacocks, Ivy knows she's not in Charleston anymore and while she's scared, she's also very much intrigued. Specially when she meets Logan Munro, the castle's resident ghost.They may have had a shaky start, but soon en

I have been a big fan of Cindy Mile's books for quite a while now, and was really looking forward to this one. And I was not disappointed!
This is the authors first YA book, and I feel that she did a very nice job with it. At it's heart, it is a very sweet love story, that just so happens to have some ghostly mystery thrown in.
It was pretty fast paced, but with wonderful detail. I also feel that this book is a good introduction to Scottish romance, simply for the fact that while the author used

I received this as an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

First, this has nothing to do with the content: Can I just say that I love how the cover actually matches the book characters?? I AM SO TIRED OF YA COVERS SHOWING SOME RANDOM GIRL IN A RANDOM DRESS. That is definitely Ivy on the cover, so two thumbs up for someone finally getting this right!! Okay, moving on...

So, I might be totally biased: I have a thing for all things Scottish. Lairds, dreary ruins, sheep, you name it, I'

I ADORED this book. I have a soft spot for Scotland and Scottish guys so that immediately drew me in. I also firmly believe that there are not enough YA books about ghosts. I have read TWO really great series that were mainly about ghosts and that pales in comparison to the amount of Vampire and Werewolf YA books that exist.

This is Cindy Miles first YA books and I sincerely hope to see more from her in the near future. I can tell she is very passionate about her writing because her book drew me

I really enjoyed the plot line of this story. I thought that it was unique, interesting, and entertaining. The author did a wonderful job bringing this story idea to life. The book flowed easily and I loved how the mystery and romance were mixed together. I was kept guessing to the very end. The foreshadowing was done excellently and I enjoyed getting these hints throughout the book. I really enjoyed the ending and I think many future readers will be happy with the conclusion of the book.

I was ready to read this book after reading that it is about a ghost, love, and a scottish castle. I really adored the unique and interesting storyline of this book. It was an entertaining and enjoyable read. The author did a terrific job bringing this tale to life. The book flowed well and I was delighted by how the mystery and romance were blended together. I was trying to (along with Ivy) figure things out all the way to the very end. The foretelling was done well and it was fun getting those ...more

Book Review- Forevermore by Cindy Miles

I have read this author before and loved her stories. This YA did not disappoint. It’s a fabulous ghost story where Ivy moves to Scotland from South Carolina. Her mother married a Scottish Laird, Niall MacAllister, after her father died of cancer. Ivy has withdrawn into her depressed world and wonders if she will fit in. She arrives to find that her new step father’s grandmother, Lady Elizabeth, doesn’t want her there. In fact she is downright hostile. Ther

This is a story of an American girl whose dad passed away and her mother remarried a prince from Scotland. She and her mother move to Scotland with her stepfather to start a new life by living in a castle. The castle was possessed if not just haunted, and everything pointed to the step grandmother because she was evil and cruel. Something mysterious was happening in the girl's room. A voice would tell her to leave because she was in danger. She was determined to find out what happened, but to he

The love of a ghost and a human sounds crazy? Yes. But love is where the heart is. Ivy Calhoun and her mother just moved into Glenmorag Castle with Macallister's. Ivy notices some strange goings on. She realizes that something supernatural is after her, and they keep telling her to leave the castle. That supernatural thing is Logan Munro. He has been apart of Glenmorag for as long as he can remember. Rumor has it that he was murdered, and that's why he is haunting the grounds. Logan and Ivy beco ...more

This book is a great quick read, especially in between reading slumps
I read this in one sitting!

It has romance, a swoon worthy guy, ghosts, it's based in a castle in Scotland, what else wouldn't you want?!?

I connected with the main character Ivy, which made this book a much quicker read.
I lOVED Logan's character so much, the connection between him and Ivy was so sweet and cute <3

Everything about this book was just amazing!
Brianna
Forevermore was such a light read which was exactly what I was expecting. The paranormal aspects of this book weren't really creepy and book was easy to read overall.

Ivy was a cute character. I don't have any strong feelings or connections to any of the characters but they were likeable.

This is a great book for anyone who is transitioning from middle grade to young adult novels.

Ivy Calhoun moves with her mother to Glenmorrag, the home of her stepfather Niall. She doesn't really know Niall and his mother is a judgmental angry old lady + there's a ghostly voice keeps telling her to leave. As it turns out, the voice belongs to Logan Munro, who is just trying to save Ivy from a terrible fate.

Ivy acts both sensibly and like a teenager trying to find herself. She knows she can't just leave the castle given that she's sixteen and in a country she barely knows, so she sets out

I loved this book!!! I loved it so much I couldn't put it down. Some of the things I like about this book where the characters, plot, and where it took place. A summary of the book is that Ivy Calhoun's mom marries a man named Niall who lives in Scotland. They move into a castle and Ivy's new grandmother Lady Elizabeth is one of the meanest people she has meet. At Ivy's first day of school she meets a girl named Emily. Emily becomes her closest friend along with Serrus and the twins. A couple da ...more

Judging by the cover of this book, my initial reaction was : "This isn't my type of book."

The first few pages didn't excite me as much as the middle part did.

In my opinion, it had just the right amount of mystery but I feel as though the romance didn't have much of an impact on me.

Some parts of the book were quite vague like a particular part where Ivy calls Logan her "boyfriend" which wasn't confirmed in the book at all.

I understand that Ivy has confeased her feelings to Logan but that doesn't

This book is now one of my favorites. It had the perfect mixture of mystery and romance and just a touch of adventure. The book's about a girl named Ivy and she has to move to Scotland with her mom and new step dad. They move into this old and ancient castle and at first Ivy is kind of creeped out but then she gets curious but she's not allowed to do or to explore that house because of Niall's , her step dad, grandmother Elizabeth. She doesn't like ivy but Ivy couldn't worry about that because s ...more

I really didn't like this book. If it was written properly without the gaping plot holes and dry dialogue, then perhaps I would enjoy it, but it lacks depth.

Firstly, there is an obvious lack of description. I'm seeing this world as very blank and boring. There are mass amounts of detail that are missing all throughout the book. If a setting, or person is described it's usually very vague--though the main characters are exceptions.

Secondly, the book moves way too fast and doesn't flow nicely at

Forevermore is a really good book for girls that are into romantic types of books. Forevermore is about A girl named Ivy who is the main character in the book moves to a new town with her mom and he new step father. Ivy starts to get little messages from a ghost who lives in the castle that she lives in now. Logan is the most handsome ghost that roams/haunts around the castle halls and which is telling Ivy to leave the castle because it is not safe for her to be there and which is trying to sca ...more
Alice
A true paranormal romance, Forevermore is about how Ivy falls in love with Logan, befriends Logan's living relatives, and solves the mystery behind Logan's death. I really enjoyed watching Ivy and Logan grow to love each other and how well the two work together. What makes it even better is the mysterious Scottish Highlands setting. The author does a great job describing the Highland, and I can picture the gloomy castle and the enchanting cliffside.

Ivy Calhoun is the most likable character. Thou
