Wow, what a story. This is why I love Nora Roberts' books...romance, both past and present, and a ghost!!! Loved it. Read it in two days because I was home from work sick. Couldn't put it down and hated to see it end.
Another good story by Nora Roberts. She has a way to take you into the story and you feel as if you are the one being haunted by the ghosts. Good book!
This book was a very good read. I enjoyed the scenic backdrops of the Bayou and Roberts knows just how to attract you to the main character. He shows true determination in the face of ghostly haunts and he's able to look beyond his lady love's past and go after what he wants in life (now that's spunk!).
There are ghosts in Manet Hall. The aging plantation mansion long ago lost its luster and has been sold and resold as owners flee the souls that still inhabit its rooms, playing out a long-ago tragedy. But former Boston lawyer Declan Fitzgerald is drawn to the house after seeing it on a visit to the city. He ditches his big-time law career and fancy fiancée, packs his bags, and relocates to Louisiana, where he plans to restore the mansion's former glory.
Upon his arrival, he meets the lovely Angelina Simone, a barkeep raised on the bayou, who like him has her own set of emotional baggage. And slowly it becomes clear that Angelina has a strange and mysterious connection to the past events replaying themselves in Declan's new home. Not even thumps in the day and night, his unsettling visions and episodes of sleepwalking, or Angelina's rebuffs make Declan give up his mission of uncovering that connection. He single-mindedly pursues his goal amid the slamming doors and flying cups and saucers, and -- through an amusing role reversal -- his relationship with Angelina blossoms.
Although you have to suspend all sense of reality to accept the supernatural happenings as everyday fact at Manet Hall, Midnight Bayou is a fast and entertaining read. Nora Roberts's legions of fans will eat it up. (G. M. Dixon)
This was a wonderful and touching story. One of my all time favorite Nora Roberts books.
