They say first love never dies…

From critically acclaimed author Kate Ellison comes a heartbreaking mystery of mental illness, unspoken love, and murder. When sixteen-year-old artist Olivia Tithe is visited by the ghost of her first love, Lucas Stern, it’s only through scattered images and notes left behind that she can unravel the mystery of his death.

There’s a catch: Olivia has gone colorblind, and there’s a good chance she’s losing her mind completely–just like her mother did. How else to explain seeing (and falling in love all over again with) someone who isn’t really there?

With the murder trial looming just nine days away, Olivia must follow her heart to the truth, no matter how painful. It’s the only way she can save herself.











The Winter Witch by Paula Brackston

Expected publication: January 29th 2013 by St. Martin’s Press

Fledgling witch Morgana must defend her love, her home, and her life in this enthralling tale perfect for fans of Discovery of Witches

In her small Welsh town, there is no one quite like Morgana. She has never spoken, and her silence as well as the magic she can’t quite control make her a mystery. Concerned for her safety, her mother quickly arranges a marriage with Cai Bevan, the widower from the far hills who knows nothing of the rumours that swirl around her. After their wedding, Morgana is heartbroken at leaving, but she soon falls in love with Cai’s farm and the rugged mountains that surround it, while slowly Cai himself begins to win her heart. It’s not long, however, before her strangeness begins to be remarked upon in her new village. A dark force is at work there—a person who will stop at nothing to turn the townspeople against Morgana, even at the expense of those closest to her. Forced to defend her home, her love, and herself from all comers, Morgana must learn to harness her power, or she will lose everything.








A ghost of a lost love coming to you to help uncover the secrets of his death, sound romantic and emotional. And, I really haven’t read a lot witch book lately, so when I saw this it sounded good. What are you “patiently” waiting on?





Happy Reading…

    I like Notes from Ghost Town – even though it sounds really spooky. I wonder what colour blindness has to do with seeing ghosts. I bet there’s a connection.
    Thanks for sharing and stopping by our blog!

    I’m not really one for ghost romance (I hate ghosts. Hate them). I do like witches though, and The Winter Witch sounds really good.

    Hi, Jenea!

    I greatly appreciate your visit and comment on my WOW. And now I’d like to tell you that I really like both of your choices!! I’ve always been a HUGE fan or ghost romances, and, although I haven’t read many witch-related books (except for the Harry Potter series), this one sounds absolutely enchanting! (Pun intended, lol!) So you can be sure that I’ll be adding these two to my TBR shelf on Goodreads!! Thanks for featuring them!! : )
