Remnants by Betty Bolte combines romance, suspense and paranormal in a perfect blend. This is book two in the Ghost Of Roseville series and it is another great book.
Paulette O’Connell lives with her sister, Meredith, in the bed and breakfast plantation they inherited. She is trying to get her costume and home design business up and running successfully. She needs the income to secure a future for her unborn child, whose father left after discovering that Paulette was pregnant. She is also trying to maintain her new found relationship with her sister. They were not always close, but they have settled their differences and are learning to get along.
The sisters can both see ghosts and they have had some experience dealing with the spectral entities. When Paulette accidentally reads a spell from a book she found, she releases her grandfather’s ghost. She has no idea how to send him into the light, and he will not tell her. He just tells her she must figure out why she needs him before he can go back. She so does not need to deal with this right now.
Zak Markel is in search of the missing ingredient for the Elixir Of Life to try to save his brother, Grant, from going blind. His research has sent him and his brother to Roseville, looking for answers and clues. What he does not expect to find in Roseville is the love of his life, Paulette. Although he knows that she feels a strong attraction to him, he does not know how to convince her that they were meant to be together.
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. Betty Bolte is a master of descriptive writing and pulls you in so that you feel like you are right there, watching things from the sideline. The characters are well developed and well rounded and I could see character growth from book one. The are new characters introduced and they are important to the storyline. And they would make good characters to write about in future books.
I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy paranormal romance/suspense books. It pulls you right in and keeps you turning pages, needing to know what is going to happen next.
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review. And my honest opinion is that this is a great book.
