Love & Ghosts (Crescent City Ghost Tours Book 1) by Carrie Pulkinen

Four Stars

This story was a good short read. I’m not usually into ghosts but this one was good. I felt that Sean made the story more intriguing. His acceptance for what others didn’t believe earned him points. He never forced his opinion on anyone. Now Emily tested my patience. Have you ever had a character rub you wrong from the beginning? That’s what she did to me. Her character just didn’t seem like she wanted to grow. That change was the worse possible thing. I did however enjoy the darker side to the story. That you could believe in something so much that it could take you over. It was scary and exciting. The author definitely grabs your attention with the after life.

Love & Ghosts (Crescent City Ghost Tours #1) by Carrie Pulkinen was an awesome book and my first by this author. My favorite books are books with ghosts and mediums. So I am so thrilled to add another author to my list of faves. I could not stop reading this book. It was so good! Not only did it hold my attention but it kept me wanting more. Lately I’ve been in a reading rut and I think this was my ticket out. Not only did I really enjoy the characters I loved the Princess Bride references. I can’t wait to see other books in the series and in the meantime hope to check out some of the authors other books. And ahem Carrie please go with at least 10 in the series? Ok? 5 star rating!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about trying to live life. Emily has been struggling to move on after the death of her sister. She goes to a masquerade ball with a friend and tries to enjoy herself and ends up dancing with a mystery man. Serendipity keeps making them bump into eachother, but problems arise when she finds out he runs a local ghost tour. Can she out her fear of ghosts behind her for a shot at happiness?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Emily stubborn but kind hearted underneath or Sean stuck between love of his profession and love of Emily. Great cast of supporting characters like Trish as the fun friend or Madeline as the kind and meddling mother.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the ballroom with the bright chandeliers and spacious rooms full of life and people. Or the bright colours of the costumes in bold reds or dark blacks or magical purples wonderfully written. Or the garden with its tall trees and shimmering fountain for that sense of peace away from the busy world. Or the bright colourful butterfly small and colourful and beautiful to repreeent reincarnation from Japanese mythology as a nice touch
The mix of fantasy of ghosts and realism of the clinic care hospital combined perfectly to mske for a captivating read. The mystery of the box was perfectly written, making you want to read on to find out what’s inside. The switch of narratives between Emily and Sean was well written and easy to follow with names at the start of the sections. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.

Love and Ghosts
By Carrie Pulkinen
Rated 5 stars

I loved this! I really enjoyed this easy to read story. The whole romance is amazingly sweet and very romantic. Sean was an quandary to me. He seemed so normal (and amazing) but there is that pesky “I see dead people” issue. That would be a huge pill to swallow and keep down. Although I was intrigued by that side of him. His past issues and how easy he accepted it. I loved his temperament through the story.

I have never been a fan of ghost books. Oh i loves to tell ghost stories but never in with a romance. This is one that i could easily read again and again. It didn’t insert the whole ghost theme as a romantic partner but as a secondary level. I liked that. I will think a little differently about getting a “chill” in the room now though. The whole ghost part was interesting to me. I would be curious how much is true and I wonder if a trip to the French Quarter should be in my future.

This is a smooth story that sparks your tummy flutters as well as firing your suspicion. It has heart and me smile! Another wonderful story by Carrie Pulkinen

I give Love and Ghosts (Crescent City Ghost Tours) by Carrie Pulkinen, 5 stars.

Leading a pretty dull life lately, Emily takes her best friend up on a dare — to kiss a guy at the charity ball they are both attending. She finds the perfect masked stranger and decides to go for it. Besides, it’s not like she will ever see him again, right? Sean communicates with ghosts and runs a haunted tour company in the heart of New Orleans. When the gorgeous mystery women kisses him at the ball, he tries desperately to get more information from her. Will he ever see her again?
Fates seem to throw them together, but she does not believe in ghosts or want anything to do with them. But supernatural forces may think otherwise. Can Sean help Emily solve the puzzle as to what is going on? Can he get her to believe in what he does or are they destined to be alone?

I really enjoyed this book and it promises to be a great, exciting series. Sean was actually my favorite character in this book, mostly because he can communicate with ghosts. I would love to see more of him using his abilities in future books. All of the characters are great though — they feel very real. And the story itself is good too. It was unlike what I was expecting and that is a good thing. I like to be surprised by what I’m reading.

If you like your romance with suspense and a supernatural twist, this book is for you.

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love & Ghosts (Crescent City Ghost Tours, #1) by Carrie Pulkinen was an entertaining, hooking read, that had me reading into the night.

Not my first read by this author, so I was super excited to get my hands on this book. I was not disappointed, rich with detail, mystery, paranormal, and a serendipitous moment, and you have one of the best mixes for a compelling read, that just sucks you in, and hooks you until the last page.

I loved the MC’s, Emily and Sean were both interesting, realistic, and they just seemed to jump off the pages at you. I loved their meeting, their interactions and how they both build each other back up. Both were strong, and that not only enriched the story, it really rounded out the plot, and believability.

Overall this book is a must read, and I can’t stress enough how much I loved and enjoyed it. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will fall hard for this second chance, paranormal romance, that will have you believing in more than just ghost.

Happy Reading

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yowzers! This was one heck of a good book! I absolutely needed this too! Such a refreshing breath of newness to the slow burn love story. Okay so this is a tad of a ghost story too but really I was taken with the beautiful detailed and captivating love that develops between Emily and Sean. From the moment Emily kisses that stranger at the Masked Charity Ball (Sean) everything changes. She doesn’t believe in that ghost stuff and there is no such thing as supernatural in her world, but she finds herself on a ghost tour anyway, and face to face with Sean again. Then there is the mysterious box that shows up on her doorstep with evil powers. Sean could be the only one to convince her that ghosts and the supernatural are real and that they could be in some very serious danger.

It isn’t your typical read and I was totally sucked in from the very first moment until the bittersweet last page. My only solace is that there will be more books to come in the Crescent City Ghost Tours series from the fabulous Carrie Pulkinen. I can only hope it won’t be too long of a wait. I know I will be checking out all of her previously released writing in the meantime as well. Thanks for the wonderful read Ms. Pulkinen!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love & Ghosts (Crescent City Ghost Tours Book 1) by Carrie Pulkinen is a paranormal/ghost themed romance. This story was a great suspenseful read with the elements written within. I adored Sean’s character. The author knocked it out of the park with his character development and personality. I was drawn to him throughout the story and he pulled me through the story. Emily comes across as his opposite in the story, but the way it was shared made them tie together perfectly. The back and forth dynamic was amazingly done. I don’t want to speak too much of the story to give away details, but this was a great book and I felt that it flowed well with the suspense, mystery and chemistry.
