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

No matter how cheesy or corny this book is (and it's both, for those unfortunate souls who dislike one or both of these qualities), I can't help but love this book.There's just something about it that warms the cockles of my curmudgeonly heart and makes me smile. It's my go-to book if I'm in a reading slump or just want something to cheer me up.

Basically, it’s a little bit of this (Hot Scottish dudes from the 19th ce

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

MY THOUGHTS
This isn't a new premise for me. I love ghosty books and I've read many where a main character moved to a new home and falls for a ghost. In fact, I've read a few that have also taken place in Scotland. Many of these books have a cheese factor to them, but this one actually takes on the plot very well and I found it very enjoyable!

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

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.

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...

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

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

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

If you're looking for a fast-paced, short and cute paranormal romance, this might be just what you're looking for.

First I'll go into what I absolutely adored about this book, which for what I only need one word: Scotland.
If you know me at all, you know about my little super huge obsession with Scotland and this book is obviously set in there, and I freaking loved it so much because it captured perfectly everything about it. The atmosphere, the beautiful and magnificent places, the accent and the

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

It has been a while since I have read a good paranormal/romance. And of course me being obsessed with pretty covers couldn't help but be instantly attracted to this book. Once I delved in there was more to the story than I had realized. Not only filled just ghosts and romance, but also mystery, magic, the beautiful backdrop of Scotland, and Ivy's journey to finding happiness. This book was definitely a great find and I am glad I have it in my reading collection.

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.

The story starts off with Ivy Calhoun who moves to Scotland (my favourite country, so bonus points there!) because her mother got married to a Scottish Laird.

They move her mother's husband's castle (a freaking castle!) and settles down there. But Ivy soon realises that there's something wrong with the castle, and Niall's (her

2.5 stars, I guess?

This was okay. It had a lot of potential and could have been really great, but ended up kinda falling flat for me. The characters just didn't have any depth and everything was explained too easily. Kinda disappointed.

Also! There were TOTAL spoilers for Cindy Miles' other book, Highland Knight, which I'd been meaning to pick up. I'm not sure that I will now. This can definitely have been described as a companion novel to that one. At least a small warning would've been nice!
