Spirited Away

Spirited Away by Cindy Miles

Archeologist Andi Monroe has been sent to Dreadmoor Castle to unearth some remains and the mystery that surrounds the castle. Tristan de Barre and his men room the castle and lands, after being cursed in 1292, and are forced to remain as ghosts. She helps them but can’t help but fall for Tristan and the whole rag-tag bunch of knights in this romantic mystery.

This book is a little slow and repetitive. The first 1/3 is her not knowing that Tristan is a ghost but being intrigued by him, his castle, and the going on’s that she has encountered then and 12 years before. Then you spend the next 1/3 knowing about everything and trying to figure stuff out and at the very end things actually happen. Personally the only truly engaging characters that I was emotionally invested in was the butler, Jamison.

Romance: Some – he likes her and wishes he could be with her. But when you are a ghost you can’t really touch or kiss the one you love.
Sex: Not till the end.
Mystery: Not much here, everything screams the answer, you would have to be pretty slow to not get what is going on.
Violence: Not much
Overall Grade: D+
