Ahhh, Nora Roberts. I have to say, I love her work, but this book left me jaded in a few places.
Essentially the book is centered around Declan Fitzgerald, a hot shot Boston lawyer who's grown tired of the courtroom and moves down to New Orleans in search of something "more." He moves into Manet Hall, a prestigious old house that has as many secrets as it does rooms. It's a fixer upper for sure, but as soon as he sets off to work on it, strange things start to happen. Declan soon finds out that the house harbors a deep dark secret, and the ghosts there are determined to keep it that way.
Now, no Nora Roberts book would be complete without a little love interest, enter Angelina Simone. She's a ball breaking bar owner whose bark is as strong as her bite. Declan falls head over heels for this fast talking sexpot, and spends most of the book trying to convince her to go out with him. She has her ups and downs for me. I think her character is way too closed off, and for me the book would've been better with more ghosts and less Lena.
Also, the ghostly things that happened could've been a little scarier, and the characters could've reacted more terrified. There's one scene where Lena is walking down the hall and the doors keep slamming, and she just keeps walking. I would be out so fast!
All in all, I didn't care too much for it. It wasn't a good ghost story, and it wasn't a good love story.
