Hi everyone and welcome! It's Thursday already and do I have a fun story to tell you about this week. I know it's Halloween this Saturday and what better way to celebrate than to have a paranormal review showcased for all of you to read this week. So, sit back, relax and take a few minutes for yourself to read my Night Owl Romance Top Pick review on: The Man In the Mirror by Jo Barrett.
Connor Stevens was a sea captain 200 years ago. Unfortunately, since he was a womanizer, he finally met his match when he broke the heart of a poor girl whose mother just so happened to be a witch. Not allowing Connor to go unpunished, the witch cast a spell on him and condemned him to live his life indefinitely in a mirror, never allowing anyone to see or hear him in the process.
But things seem to change when Tori Fraser buys the mirror for her hallway and Connor begins to become smitten with her. The problem is she doesn't even know he exists. Connor realizes he's never felt this way toward any girl before and maybe Tori can somehow help him break the curse. The question is how is he going to be able to make Tori see or hear him?
I really enjoyed this story and felt bad for Tori because she was always so down on herself and not to mention poor Connor was condemned to live his life trapped in a mirror. Being the true romantic that I am, I hoped that Tori could be the one person who could break that wretched curse somehow. I really enjoyed this story and I think you will too! It's a short one that can easily fit into the busiest of schedules.

The Man In The Mirror - Book Excerpt
Connor Stevens just can’t stand the fact that Tori Fraser is so down on her looks all the time. Living 200 years under the curse of the sea witch, poor Connor must live his life now confined in a mirror indefinitely. In doing so, this is how Connor became acquainted with Tori. When she moved into her house, she picked up a mirror for her hallway. Little did she know that a ghost was forced to take residence in that very mirror.
You see, a long time ago Connor was a sea captain. He was conceited, greedy and a womanizer. During one of his romps seducing a woman, which so happened to be the sea witch’s daughter, her left her heartbroken. The sea witch was so angered that she condemned him to live his life in a mirror being only able to see and hear what was going on around him, but never having anyone see or hear him in return. Now, 200 years later, he has met Tori and is quite fond of her. But he knows that nothing will ever come about between them because she doesn’t even know he exists. Or does she?
Was it meant to be that Tori stumbled upon that mirror for her house? Is Tori ever given the opportunity to see and hear Connor? Is there a way that he can break the sea witch’s curse once and for all?
I found this storyline to be quite unique and very entertaining to read. I immediately fell in love with Tori and felt bad that she was always so hard on herself. When Connor struggled to be heard and seen by Tori, I was hoping against the odds that the curse could finally be broken. I thought that Connor and Tori complimented each other well considering that he was a changed man having so many years on his hands to realize his womanizing ways. Ms. Barrett was very creative in developing this storyline and she makes her readers fall in love with her characters right from the start. This is definitely one you should look into and after reading it, I know you’ll become a fan of Ms. Barrett’s if you aren’t one already. Keep up the great work, Ms. Barrett.
