Review: Finding Lord Farlisle


The girl he finally remembers

Eleven years ago, a shipwreck robbed Lord Maxim Farlisle of his memory. Recovering himself, he journeys to his childhood home to find Waithe Hall shut and deserted. Unwilling to face what remains of his family, Maxim makes his home in the abandoned hall…only to have a determined ghost hunter invade his uneasy peace.

The boy she never forgot

Fascinated by spirits, Lady Alexandra Torrence cannot disregard the opportunity to investigate the estate she knew so well. She arrives at the shuttered hall to discover a ghost of a different kind—the boy she thought to never see again. Maxim had been the boy next door, her best friend, her soul mate…and then he’d vanished.

As the two rediscover their connection, the promise of young love burns into an overwhelming passion. But the time apart has scarred them both—will they discover a love that will draw them together or will the past tear them apart forever?

My Review:
I enjoyed reading this story, partly because the characters are so well drawn. Alexandra is a ghost hunter and thinks for herself even though many of her acquaintances label her as odd. She’s multi-dimensional, not a flat, insipid heroine like some I’ve read. Maxim is also multi-dimensional. He isn’t flat either. He’s conflicted, but not to the point that it’s ridiculous.
The plot of the story is good and well drawn, and the author couldn’t have picked a better setting for the story. The end too didn’t disappoint, and I thought the last line of the story was wonderful.
If you enjoy a good regency with warm, likable characters and a good plot and setting I’d recommend the book to you. I’d give it 4.5 stars.

    I like reading about spooks, as long as the stories won’t give me nightmares.
    Which type is this?
