What happens when the very thing ruining your life ends up saving it?

I was never one to believe in spirits—until six years ago, when a bone-chilling accident changed my life... forever.

My name is Charlotte, but most people call me Char... and I have a special gift.

I talk to the dead.

Make no mistake, I can’t summon them. I’m only able to see and speak to the spirits tha

You know how sometimes you read a blurb for a book and just go "Wow! I need to read that!" ? Well, that's exactly what happened to me here. I'm always on the lookout for different books. I love the romance genre, but I especially love when I come across a story that is unlike any other I've read. Check this out...

Awwww I really enjoyed this story! I loved all the characters and even though it’s a love triangle it’s pretty obvious how things will end since one of the three is dead. Charlotte’s been a drifter for over five years and her gift and her loneliness have taken its toll. She decides to end her life of servitude and find some relief for her loneliness.

What a beautiful story! “Where One Goes” was like nothing I’ve read so far. It’s an emotional story about life, love, loss and moving on. It rarely happens to come across a PNR as touching as this one. I loved everything about it, from the flawless writing to the three endearing main characters. I was so engrossed in this story from the beginning I couldn’t put it down.

I absolutely adored this story. Where One Goes is a unique story about love, loss and moving on. The main character, Charlotte, can communicate with the dead, and while this plays a big part in the story, its not campy and honestly I wouldn't even label it as paranormal, I would say its spiritual. Charlotte has spent years wandering, alone, moving from place to place. Her parents think she's nuts and the last 6 years have done a number on her, she is tired of being lonely and surrounded

This is gonna be the longest review I’ve ever written cause there are no simple words to say how I feel and I’m sure I’m gonna miss something after I’m done…

This was an unusual choice for me and it was recommended to me by my dearest friend ANA cause I was in a totally overdrived state of mind LOL and she offered a way out of it. I didn’t read it then.

The first thought after reading the blurb was: the hell is this? She falls in love with the ghost? Damn,

*3.5 stars*

This isn't just another romance novel. Where One Goes is an exceptionally beautiful love story that builds a unique world through the elements of love, loss, and healing.

Yes, the heroine communicates with the dead -- souls who have yet to cross-over due to "unfinished business"-- but this story has more of a spiritual tone than a supernatural one.

Yes, there is a bit of a love triangle, but it's NOT a threat since one of the heroes is ... well, dead.

YES, this book sucked me in,

This book, good lord this book. I've never read a book like this. Never thought I would, and actually love it in the process. I threw myself into it and I think I'm still lost in it a bit. At first I was like "Nah this isn't gonna work for me" then I went to "wow, I wonder if this crap really happens" next "my heart breaks for Charlotte for her past and for her present" then "holy shit I'm in love" and yeah you get it, I was all over it.

This was the story about a girl who could see ghosts. They had some unfinished business and needed her help so they could crossover.

This book just knocked me out, drained all my emotions, and shattered my heart into pieces.

"Go to sleep, baby girl," he whispers.

I don't know. I liked the blurb for this one. I liked the reviews my friends posted.

I think my main problem was that I was fully invested in Ike and did not give a sugar about George. I didn't even like him.

I can see how most would find it very emotional and heartwarming but not me.

Ah, well, you can't win em all.

It does not get a full 5 though because it had gray eyes and I'm sooooo tired of them! So 4.99 it is! :) .

If I could rate this a ten plus stars; I would! This book reminded me again of why I love to read! I think that B.N. Toler did an absolute amazing job of writing a heart felt story that was both heart wrenching and heart warming all at the same time. I was riveted to the page, and nothing in my world mattered while I was plunged into the bittersweet story between a young woman who converses with the dead, and twin brothers; one who is dead and one who is left behind drowning in his grief.

"Sometimes I don’t realize how badly I need something until I see someone else with it."

"Where One Goes" is a very beautiful story of three people but it is not a usual love triangle because one of them is already dead.

Charlotte is a girl who looks like Audrey Hepburn. Charlotte is isolated and alone because of her ability to see and talk to the dead. That is why her life is a mess. Even her parents think she is crazy. This happened to her after the accident she had 6 years ago during which he

This was a new author to me and surprisingly it was very easy to get into. There was a few things that bugged me like getting George's PoV too late into the story. I felt more of a connection with Ike and Char. The end with Roger was huh???!

I enjoyed this though and not once did I feel bored. The love triangle wasn't really an issue because well one of them is dead. It was kind of sad but there was humour and a great bunch of characters. It's not one I will forget easily.

‘This isn’t a life – it’s a nightmare. A never-ending torment of death and servitude. And the pain has become too much to bear.’

Wow, this story made us cry and think about many relevant aspects to our own feelings and thoughts on life and death. It was such a beautiful written journey for a variety of reasons. The writing was flawless and the characters had such depth and brought a wide spectrum of emotion. The intense feeling of loss and emotional connection was unquestionable as wa

Brilliantly written, very interesting unique plot, likable characters.

I liked the heroine and I loved Ike / dead brother -> he was my true hero in this story.

I disliked the other brother, ugh, just NO!
Drugs are not romantic, but it wasn’t my main problem with him.
He had an affair with taken woman. He f*cked OW, who had a bf, and it was a common knowledge. Just NO!
I didn’t forgive him till the end. He was a jerk, he was rude, he was many things I dislike in a man.

The emotions so raw. The love felt so real. It's one of those books that when you reach the end .... You turn back to page one so you can fall in love with the story all over again.

Where One Goes was my FAVORITE book of 2016 and it went straight to my list of all-time favorite books. It's a book that I was scared to read, but I'm so glad that I took the courage to do that, because I would have missed one of the best stories ever.

Charlotte has a gift: she can talk to the dead. Yes, you read that right.
When the dead appear to me, there’s no weird sound or blurred image. A warning sign of some sort would be lovely, but it’s not a luxury afforded to me

Where One Goes brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my face. It was a bittersweet journey for all three main characters: Charlotte, Ike, and George.

This was definitely a unique storyline. It follows Charlotte, who after the death of her brother six years ago, can see the dead who have unfinished business before they can pass over to the other side. For five years she's been on her own after her family sent her away when they didn't know what to do with her gift. She's tired of seeing

Despite its PN features, this book felt very realistic to me. The author has done a great job in including paranormal-cy in a drama book. Maybe there are people who can communicate with the dead out there.Who knows? The world is a strange place...

I’ve read 3 other books by this author and I’ve loved them all. They are all amazing and very different. Where One Goes is also amazing and different. I loved this book so much! I rarely read paranormal romances, so I never expected to have a paranormal romance as one of my favorite books ever, but it just happened. I was glued to my tablet after reading the prologue and I couldn’t stop reading. It’s really amazing! It’s an emotional roller coaster and I cried a few times.

I loved the idea of this book, but I ended up feeling very underwhelmed. I’d put off reading it because I thought it was going to be a cry fest, but instead I hardly felt anything. Aside from the paranormal aspect, everything felt rushed and unbelievable.
