    1. **3.5 stars**Interesting, beautiful story by new-to-me author Sarah Black. Now I have to go back and figure out everything she has written and devour it all!

    2. Robert Mitchell is arriving back to the cabin in Salmon River, Idaho which belonged to his lover Val.

His life that was radiant and full just one year before seems like it’s falling apart all around him, and he’s feeling low. Things have been grim, and he’s thought that selling the cabin might be a way to at least relief some of t [...]

    3. Okay, so this is a beautiful story. It's a ghost story and a love story. It's sexy and spiritual at once. The story is told in 3rd person in Robert's POV, about a year after the loss of his partner, Val on the occasion of visiting Val's cabin for the first time since Val's death. He addresses Val frequently throughout the story, both in his thoughts and in writing in the journal. And, this being a ghost story, Val talks back.While he's pretending to fish, he encounters Cody, a handsome young Bla [...]

    5. DNF at 26% - Where is a "cheesiest line" contest when you need one"() You hungry? The chili's done."Cody reached for him, tugged him close. "I'm hungry for you."I really don't like this book.The story feels unfinished even at the beginning. The interaction and dynamics between the two main character don't make sense to me.It is worse than insta-love, because there is insta-trust as well.Robert opens up to the handsome Blackfoot anthropologist right after their first meeting, talks about his inne [...]

    6. Rating: 5 stars out of 5Romantic, suspenseful and absolutely enthralling. A must read. Visit wp/p220KL-1Fj for my full review.ScatteredThoughtsandRogueWords
