The Ghost of Glendale
At twenty-four years old, Phoebe Marcham is resigned to spinsterhood, unwilling to settle for anything less than the deep love her parents had shared. That is, until adventurer Duncan Armstrong rides into her home wood, larger than life and with laughter in his eyes and more charm in his little finger than anyone she’s ever met before. Far from ridiculing her family ghost, Duncan resolves to help solve the mystery which has left Simon Marcham a spirit in torment for two hundred years.

I received an advanced copy of this book from Rachel’s resources. I don’t normally enjoy regency romances but I was intrigued by the book cover and decided to make an exception, as I also like books with a paranormal element. The books is well written, quick and easy to read. Natalie creates well rounded characters and crams a lot into the novella, to make it a page turner. It had a nice old fashioned feel to the writing that I enjoyed. What I would say is that I found the opening quite hard going, but the novella quickly improved for me. It’s a light clean romance and I would recommend this book to others. It also felt believable and well researched. It’s a fairly short read coming in at eighteen chapters and I read it in one sitting. A great go-to- book if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands.
I would give it a sold four stars.
