Review ~ The Ghosts of Rue Dumaine

Ready to get her life back on track after ending a painful marriage, Danica Giles returns to the Creole cottage where she grew up in the New Orleans French Quarter. Danica is anxious to rekindle her friendship with a former resident from her old neighborhood, the seductive Gaston Deslonde. But Gaston isn’t exactly a normal guy. The charming man has been dead for over a hundred and fifty years, and the childish crush Danica once had on her ghostly playmate quickly turns into something much deeper. When a handsome new man enters Danica’s life, Gaston vows to do whatever he can to hold on to her. Danica soon discovers that the most forbidden of all desires cannot be satisfied without paying a grave price. Love can blur the lines between life and death when you are living among the ghosts of Rue Dumaine.
OMG...LOVED THIS BOOK! I cried when it ended, I was not ready to let go of Gaston.

My Review:

The Ghosts of Rue Dumaine was a fantastic read. Alexandrea Weis has created a world that captivates you from page one. I have never been disappointed with any of her books. The characters came to life, grabbed me by the hand and pulled me into their world. I felt as though I was experiencing their trials and victories with them.

This story begins with Danica moving back into her childhood home. This decision was brought on by her desire to reunite with an old friend.

Gaston isn't your ordinary guy. He maybe a dedicated friend, sweet and romantic, but he is also a ghost and willing to do anything to keep Danica in his life.

If a great ghostly kind of romance is what you seek, look no further.

I do recommend this book for ages 18+
