My Review:
Ghosts of the Falls is another quick read in the Entangled: Ever After imprint that's great for Halloween or anytime.  It's interesting and fast-paced and I am really enjoying this imprint from Entangled Publishing.

Jade and Dutch are interesting.  Jade is an exorcist and Dutch is ghost who has been haunting a state park for over a century.  Dutch calls Jade to exorcise him so he can leave his ghost life and move on/die.  He doesn't care what happens, he hates his life so much.  However he is strong ghost and Jade finds herself attracted to him since he can take corporeal form.  Dutch also finds himself instantly attracted to Jade and can find life more interesting with her around.  I liked the characters.  Jade seems a little stiff at first but slowly we learn more about her.  Dutch is amazing, I loved  him from the start.  He's a good soul, protecting and helping others and really meaning no harm.  His feeling for Jade also shine through.  Through Dutch I learned to like Jade even more.  And by the end I loved them both.

The story moves quickly and at times seems rushed, but this is a novella.  The quickness does not take away from the story, it just makes it fast.  I liked the romance and the storyline of Jade being an exorcist and Dutch being a ghost a lot.  I wished for more of the back story but again this is a novella.

I wish the book was longer just because I want more of Dutch and Jade, but the length works as a short, quick read that packs a punch.  So if you want a sweet but hot love story with a paranormal twist that's different then this is just the book for you!

My Rating: 4.5/5.0 stars

About the Book:

Determined to prove she’s fit for the family business, exorcist Jade Clarence knows the assignment waiting in Maine is her last chance. Born into a family of exorcists, Jade’s unorthodox ideas have gotten her into trouble in the past...and cost the life of a client.

After haunting a Maine state park for more than a century, Dutch Hutchinson will do whatever it takes to bring an end to his unfulfilling existence. When an act of arson brings a beautiful exorcist to town, Dutch takes corporeal form in order to spend his last hours in her company.

Jade quickly uncovers Dutch’s true identity and finds herself falling for the man behind the spirit. But when Jade’s legacy threatens their future, they will have to overcome the greatest of odds—life and death
