Als der Bostoner Anwalt Declan Fitzgerald erfhrt, dass Manet Hall zum Verkauf steht, hlt ihn nichts mehr. Schon lange hegt er den Traum, den verfallenen Herrschaftssitz in Louisiana in alter Pracht auferstehen zu lassen. Aber whrend er hmmert und streicht, berfllt ihn eine beinahe unertrgliche Trauer. Die herrlichen Zimmer, das Foyer, die breite Treppe, alles scheint voll Leben zu sein. Besonders die Kammer unter dem Dach: Von dort meint Declan wiederholt ein Baby weinen zu hren. Nur die junge resolute Restaurantbesitzerin Angelina Simone versteht seine ngste. Aber als der Funke zwischen ihnen berspringt, geraten sie in Gefahr: Unerklrliche Unflle ereignen sich. Es sieht so aus, als msse fr eine gemeinsame Zukunft erst das entsetzliche Unrecht der Vergangenheit geshnt werden. Als das Haus in neuem Glanz erstrahlt, laden Declan und Angelina Freund und Feind zu einem groen Ball mit dramatischen Folgen ...

There was a phase I enjoyed Nora Roberts‘s TV movie adaptations of her books. Northern Lights, Angels Fall, Montana Sky, Blue Smoke, Carolina Moon, and the tagged book. Not read this book though.

StayCurious The movies are fun, if a little rushed. 7mo

One of the first Nora Roberts‘ I read, and one of the spookiest too! A successful lawyer is somehow drawn to an old house. He purchases it and immediately begins to see and hear things. There‘s a story of sorts played out in these hauntings. Roberts plays the spooky vibe well, or at least for someone like me who scares easily. Yes, there is a romance, but try it for the spooky factor too. #BlueBayou #MarchIntoThe70s

Ugh, I was in the mood for a classic NR but this one didn't do it for me at all. I enjoyed the New Orleans setting but the ghost story aspect was too heavy handed and it's another house reno plot (is it me or has she done that several times?). Plus the heroine was SO irritating, major eyerolls happening. I hate bailing on books, but I realized I was only halfway through and had no desire to finish. My TBR is too long for this ish 🤷🏽‍♀️ #romantsy

Jaya That‘s too bad but life is too short to force yourself to complete it without enjoyment. This is actually one I teach often though (apart from Naked in Death) because it addresses race and gender in the US context and a lot of the scenes force characters to walk in someone else‘s shoes— really useful when getting students to think about identities not their own. 2y
swishandflick @Jaya Oh, interesting! I wasn't picking up on that, it just felt like a ghost story without much suspense since the book begins with the flashback of what happened. And I just never felt genuine chemistry between the characters. I'm a big Nora Roberts fan so I was pretty surprised that I didn't take to it. Could be the mood I'm in 🤔 2y

Look how pretty it is!

I really loved and enjoyed this book up until quiet literally the last chapter. I enjoyed Decleans dry humor. Lenas self made woman bad ass ness. The romance, the ghosts. Yes it had a familiar feeling but there were enough changes to keep it interesting but that ending left me pretty dang disappointed.

To keep or give away? What do you do with a book that disappoints you?
