Description of the book: Veronica’s first date with Sebastian not only stirs up a powerful attraction, but also a series of supernatural events that will tear them apart.
After countless hours of dead end online dating, Veronica meets up with Sebastian at a reportedly haunted restaurant, since he knows she has a fascination with the paranormal. While enjoying their meals and each other’s company, they share a shocking supernatural experience. Their romantic connection is overshadowed by the ghosts of their own pasts that threaten to destroy their budding relationship. Veronica decides she must return to the restaurant to face her past and dig up more answers. Unfortunately, she realizes she must go back, this time with a reluctant Sebastian. In the end, they join forces against the evil that stands between them, but will they make it out alive?
How this book made me feel: This story was on my TBR for a very long time, and I do apologise for this long delay. I have no idea why I didn’t read it earlier, as it takes only a few minutes. Because it is a short story, the review will be quite short as well. 🙂
I found this story quite refreshing after reading a deep and complex novel, and it was what I needed at this time. This is “don’t judge a book by its cover” kind of situation because the cover does not look very appealing, but it does carry an interesting story. I really liked Veronica and Sebastian in this story, they were very realistic and just generally sweet people. I really enjoyed the narrative as well. I liked that the author discussed family issues and grasped a very nice angle to utilise it for this story. I really enjoyed the little surprises which the author had to offer as well. The writing style was pleasant and easy to read, and the ending was very unexpected but completed this story very nicely.
So, to conclude, if you like ghost stories with a hint of romance, do give this story a go, and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. 🙂
Thank You for Your time. 🙂
