Hunting for Love is a sweet short about a ghost whispering woman, Heather, that gets to go on a blind date to a haunted plantation. Brave enough to be trapped in a house overnight with a guy she’s never met before and do some ghost hunting, she awaits his arrival. However, when Gavin Wright appears, her ex from long ago, she must brave the past to uncover the reason for her pull to this place and the couple of decades past within…
My first thought picking up this book was that it didn’t matter to me what it was about, just that it was an author I’ve come to love so fast through this site (Night Owl Reviews). I feel like through her books, we can pick up more and more of the sassy, snarky, but loveable personality that seems to be hiding just below the service of all her female leads. They say that authors often write what they know, so maybe we’re picking up on some of Ms. Nelson’s own personal charm? The point is, I love this author and I love everything she puts out there to be read. Everything she writes is like a movie playing in my head and I won’t move until I’ve finished it. When you’re looking for a pick-me-up, just grab one of her books because the characters will captivate you, the story will suck you in, and maybe you’ll even discover something about yourself that you didn’t know you had hiding.
Two thumbs up to this book as well as Virginia Nelson.
Heather McNamara talks to dead people and tries to bring healing to both the living and the recently deceased. After asking a dating service for someone who accepts her, and her gift, she signs up for a blind date unlike any other. Even if the matchmaking ends up being a dud, her date is set in a plantation crawling with spirits of the past and includes ghost hunting.
Gavin Wright wants to prove ghosts are real. Losing his twin at a young age, he almost believes that if he can prove there is life after death, he can find meaning in why he survived and his brother didn’t. At the chance to get locked in a haunted plantation, he’s thrilled…until he meets his date.
