Review: Ghosted by Rosie Walsh



Blurb from Goodreads:
Six perfect days. Then he disappeared. A love story with a secret at its heart.

When Sarah meets Eddie, they connect instantly and fall in love. To Sarah, it seems as though her life has finally begun. And it's mutual: It's as though Eddie has been waiting for her, too. Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn't call.

Sarah's friends tell her to forget about him, but she can't. She knows something's happened--there must be an explanation.

Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she's right. There is a reason for Eddie's disappearance, and it's the one thing they didn't share with each other: the truth.
My Review:
 
Without giving much away, this was a disappointment and I feel like it is kind of false advertising.  I think I was expecting more of a serious ghost-ing, not one that becomes evident and/or understandable fairly quickly.  We've all read stories like this before - two people meet and have an affair that they don't quite resolve and in the meantime, they realize they are connected by their pasts in a way that would have completely changed how they acted toward one another had they known.  I wasn't impressed and I would honestly skip this one.

Ghosted comes out next week on July 24, 2018, and you can purchase HERE.
I laughed, and he kissed my nose, and I wondered how it was that you could spend weeks, months--years, even--just chugging on, nothing really changing, and then, in the space of a few hours, the script of your life could be completely rewritten.

  1. That is so disappointing to hear!! I was really looking forward to it. Since I own it I might still try it but won't be quite as excited going into it.

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
