ROPES AND REVENGE
Lonesome Point Book 6
Publisher: Self Taught Ninja
Release Date: April 14, 2015
Two haunted people, one chance to put pain in the past…
Eight months ago, John Lawson lost his wife and best friend in a tragic accident on his family’s ranch. In the time since, he’s devoted himself to two things—taking care of his two newly motherless sons and proving that Lily’s accident was no accident. Now, he finally has hard evidence that his wife was murdered and he won’t rest until he has the killer’s blood on his hands. He doesn’t have time for anything but vengeance, especially not a crazy ghost hunter wanting to poke around the old spring on his family’s ranch.
Persephone Styles—Percy to her friends—learned about ghosts the hard way, when she was orphaned by a violent crime at the age of seven. Ever since, she’s seen spirits and been obsessed with studying souls beyond the grave. She’s in Lonesome Point to document the town’s spectral activity, but finds herself powerfully drawn to widower John Lawson and empathizing with his grieving children. For the first time in years, Percy is as riveted by the living as she’s always been by the dead and longs to be a part of John’s life.
But when one night of passion becomes something more, Percy realizes John is as haunted as she is and that the man she’s coming to love is walking a dangerous road that may end with him becoming a murderer’s next victim.
I’ve always wondered how does someone move on from loosing their forever person. The person that knows you better than you know yourself. How does one pick up the pieces and move on from loosing the human you really can’t imagine living without? Specially a single father of two young boys like John is. This book does a great job at explaining how does one move on.
As a ghost whisperer, Percy spends her days worrying and communicating with those that have passed. Helping them find their rest. Neglecting actually living and enjoying her life. It’s a curse to have a special gift. And in her case that gift broke her world into a million pieces.
Here’s two extremely broken people that find each other, and help each other through a lot of horrible stuff. Unexpected murderer, near death experience, and lots of other things I won’t ruin for you. I try really hard not to give spoilers in my reviews. I don’t want to take away from anyone’s reading experience.
My favorite thing about Jessie’s characters is that she makes them so real, I expect to see John and Percy walking hand in hand into my Subway car at the next stop.
What I love about Jessie’s books in general, is that she doesn’t waste time in writing about the details a lot of authors waste page space over. Her books flow, and you don’t feel like you missed out on anything.
What I don’t like about Jessie’s books is that they need to be longer. Yes Jessie, make them longer. I need more time in Lonesome Point.
I love this story. I love the characters, no matter how weird they were. If you want a good suspenseful romance, read the Lonesome Point series.
