Book Review: Siren's Song
Book Review: Siren's Song by D.L. Snow
First sentence: "The first time I saw him was at my grandmother's funeral."
From Amazon.com: "After giving up fame, Joss Jones wants a normal life. Maybe she’ll find it in Bandit Creek. Or…maybe not. From the moment she moves into the old mansion she inherited, she’s stalked by a ghost who torments her before dragging her back in time to Bandit Creek, 1899. Has she gone crazy or is this old mining town, full of saloons, gambling, whoring and fortune seekers her new reality? It feels real enough as does the ghost who brought her here. His name is Morgan Hawes and he is very much alive. Is Morgan the key to Joss finding her way home or is Joss stuck for the rest of her life as the Siren of Bandit Creek?"
My take: This is a 32000 word novella I saw in the Pixels of Ink daily email. It sounded light and refreshing so I got it. I read it in a short time and found it exceptionally entertaining. Joss is a great character and though we don't learn a whole lot about her in the short 32000 words, I learned enough to like her and empathize with her and her feelings toward Morgan Hawes. If you enjoy a light, breezy time travel romance with ghosts and passion -- then you'll love this one.
