Laura Spinella’s Ghost Gifts trilogy continues as Aubrey’s otherworldly talents—and a visit from a former lover—threaten to tear apart her family.
A mysterious death in a muddy swamp, missing children in different states…psychic Aubrey Ellis and her partner, investigative reporter Levi St John, have their hands full. The added strain of raising their son, who struggles...more
Aubrey's story continues, 12 years later, with more psychic exploits and a surprise visit from a man from her past that threatens to destroy her family.
A murder mystery, a touch of romance, all mixed with an eerie, paranormal element make Foretold tie in nicely with book one, Ghost Gifts.
I look forward to where Ms. Spinella takes us in the next novel.
Thank you to NetGalley and Montlake Romance for an arc of this novel in exc ...more
If it was possible to be silent on top of silent, that’s what she was doing. Unfortunately, it backfired, and silence translated into a loud confession.
Dylan—a curly-haired kid with fat dimples and bright eyes—burped loud enough to rattle bric-a-brac.
The mystery and intrigue were increasingly compelling in depth and breadth, with additional twists, unique complications, unpredictable detours, and remarkable discoveries. The tautly written and complex storylines were dev ...more
When my publisher approached me about extending the book into a trilogy, I had to do some fast thinking. I huddled with a few close writer friends and brainstormed with my critique partner. One of them said, "I was always so curious about Aubrey's carnival past." Another said, "I want to know what happened after that last scene--what did Aubrey do with her life?" And yet another recalled a very specific sce ...more
Let me say, at start: the mystery, the multiple timelines unfolding, it was all masterful. Better than the first book, even. The twist was heartbreaking, and the story as a whole was 5 solid stars.
But the relationship was just garbage.
Look, this book is a paranormal romance. But the romance was zip. Aubrey and Levi only barely got together in the last book. Seriously, you only found out that they were for sure together - and he wasn't ...more
WOW!!! I found that “Foretold” by Laura Spinella had me so captivated that I just couldn’t put this book down. This is the sequel and second book to “Ghost Gifts” by Laura Spinella, which I finished reading yesterday. I feel like a have been on a Laura Spinella marathon, and it has been quite an adventure. The genres of this book are Para-Normal, Mystery and Suspense and Fiction.
KUDOS to Laura Spinella for her spell-binding as well the way she weaves the ...more
I could not read this book fast enough. It was captivating, intriguing, and mystery filled.
We picked up 12 years later after the first book. That is the only thing I found fascinating...why such a big time jump? I fell in love with Levi in book one and I felt like we needed to search for that Levi this time around.
However, the story line still was a wonderful read. It almost felt like I was reading "This Is Us" with all of the time jumps. ...more
This was the 2nd book in a series but I didn't feel I missed anything by not readi ...more
This book was my favorite do far, from my very favorite author!
With Foretold there is multiple storylines. The storyline of Aubrey Ellis and her changing, new gifts is my favorite. The story of her son, Pete, evolving gifts was heart breaking for me as a mother. I was anxious for Aubrey as she tries to find out wh ...more
This book is set twelve years from where Ghost Gifts left off when life has gotten complicated for Audrey. Her son Pete is starting to experience some of her gifts which in turn has caused issues between Audrey and her partner Levi. Having her first love, Zeke suddenly show up isn't helping matters eith ...more
This book combined murder, mystery, and the walk through a paranormal existence, connecting the past - present - and future, that few people would be willing to acknowledge or believe in.
The characters and plot were acutely described and completely believable. It is shocking that multiple events around the country were all inter-connected. The profanity factor occurred less often than in the first book, which is a huge plus.
Bouncing back and forth between the past events and present events was ...more
I liked getting the opporutunity to pick up the story of Aubrey and Levi, to see where time had taken them. This part of the story takes place several years after Ghost Gifts and we join Aubrey ...more
Laura Spinella is a story telling genius! I was so hooked into Foretold! I could NOT put this book down. I was riveted! Laura spins such a clever, fast paced, addicting story that absolutely comes together PERFECTLY! I am still wowed at how she connects all the dots and makes everything come together for a flawless story.
OhEmGee! I want MORE! I am ridiculously attached to these characters. I have so much love for Aubrey and Levi. Aubrey’s life has always been far from ...more
Aubrey Ellis has the gift to see "dead people" and even communicate with them. This starts out still following up with her and Levi's romance. They now have a son, Pete, and their
is crumbling because of Pete's psychic abilities. Levi and Pete move out leaving Aubrey alone.
Aubrey is still working with the FBI and the latest case links up with a story that Levi is doing and they are thrown back together. Making it hard for them to end the ...more
I had a love/ hate with this second novel in a ghost gifts series. I loved that it told what happens after you get you Prince, but I also hated the main characters splitting up. I also hated what happened to Aubrey's childhood friend. I had a feeling what the endgame was with him but I didn't want to believe it. I enjoyed this second part, but I don't know if I can handle watching the next book. I recommend this book fully and I guess I'll read the next novel. I'll try real hard no ...more
Overall, I am enjoying this series, and look forward to book 3!
When Ghost Gifts was published, I never thought I’d write about ghosts again. One and d ...more
