Blog Tour: Unsettled Spirits by Sophie Weeks

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: 5/30/13

Sarah Markham always assumed that the Ivy League was her ticket to a new life. But after graduating from Harvard at the height of the Great Recession, she finds herself with no job offers and not much hope. That all changes when she enters a bookshop owned by Samuel, an eccentric intellectual who offers her not just a job, but also a place to stay. Sarah soon discovers a small catch though: her room is haunted by Lucy Larch, an opinionated and strong-willed ghost from the 1940s. As Sarah tries to help Lucy move on, she meets handsome Irishman Ian Flynn and falls in love, but her insecurities soon threaten every relationship she’s built.

As Sarah grapples with questions of faith, love, and identity, she must learn to embrace not just the spirits of the present, but the haunting pain of the past. Can she accept her past, and more importantly herself, in order to let love in?

My Review:
I really did enjoy this novel, it was a lite and easy read. Sophie Weeks has done a great job in creating compelling characters that made me feel like I had a stake in their lives.

I think there are a lot of spiritual elements to this story while not being heavy. The life lessons Sarah goes through add another dimension to the story. 

Everything from the pacing to the characters are very well done. I enjoyed this novel and it is perfect for anyone looking for a lite Paranormal type read.
