The setting for this story is Manzanita, a small town in California's Trinity Alps. When Jesse Copeland was a young girl, her mother committed suicide (supposedly), and a distraught Jesse attacked the man she believed responsible. She was *sent away* for her own good, and when *recovered* went to work for the Peace Corps. When the story opens, she's recently returned to town and trying to rebuild her life when the man she believes responsible for her mother's death suddenly returns to t

Gotta tell you, I love me some Gothic novels. Have done since I first discovered them in Cox's, an early precursor to the modern convenience store. Of course, it was better than a convenience store because it sold comic books (now called graphic novels ) and books. That was in the mid-1960s and I devoured every Gothic novel I found there and also the public library. Give me the eerie, the touch of the paranormal, the strange inexplicable events, the strange inexplicable people.

Add to that good p

Body and Soul as a whole was a pretty good tale. Except the end... You have this complex story about a ghost and 3 reincarnated souls, but the ending is so simple and basic it ruined it for me.

Just ghosts in this one. Fun.
Paranormal Romance
Memories from her childhood still resonate with the heroine even these long years later. The repressed events which convince her that her mothers murder was done by the boyfriend, the years spent in a mental hospital as the heroine had what's known as a breakdown at the funeral where she accused the man of murder. All these things have weighed heavy on her heart and as such she's a very distrusting and reserved woman. She's only returned to this small town of her childhood to remember details sh ...more

This book was quite strange. Usually I avoid reincarnation books, especially if one of the couple remains alive, but it had a ghost, and I had just read and rather liked For the Earl's Pleasure by Anne Mallory, so I figured why not. (Besides, my usual method of picking books at the library is to just grab a bunch with historical-looking covers, which this has, even if it is contemporary, so it was in my stack.)

I went along with the plot pretty well, despite the reincarnation and some other probl

Jesse Copeland comes face to face with an old enemy who reminds her of her mother's mysterious death when Jesse was a child.

David Ventris, Lord Ashthorpe, has been called back to earth for his only chance of forgiveness. He had wronged Jesse in a previous life, and now it is time for him to make things right. For the sake of his soul -- ...more

An interesting story that includes ghosts and past lives. Somehow Krinard was able to take something that can be really over the top and make the reader not even question it for a heartbeat.

Great writing. However, the trope where a woman is experiencing something that puts her in the position of being thought crazy while she's in real danger is not for me. ...more
