believing that we carry the love experienced in this life on into the next Danica is fortunate to fall in love with two men who give back as much love as she gives to them They just do it differently

had to endure she managed to start over in the exact place where everything began Her love for Gaston is unlimited, she is truly devoted to him because otherwise she wouldnt have kept her promise to him I was so sad that they belong to two different dimensions and that they could never be together When they were finally able to taste normalcy, I started hating Gaston with a passion Thankfully it was short lived.Gaston is a gentleman, but a man who knows exactly what he wants I loved the scene when he finally claims what he always wanted It definitely made the bookenjoyable no pun intended He

bring all of the details and scenery to life for me, as I ve never been to New Orleans It felt as if I were walking around Jackson Square with Danica and Gaston on Halloween night Dining at Antoine s and seeing the sights Also, I feel like the author deserves a shout out for her skillful love scene writing abilities Being an avid book reader, I ve read a few in the past that have had me cringing but Alexandrea Weis manages them with flair I found them to be really well written She somehow manages to make them HOT but tasteful at the same time.The only complaint that I had while reading this book, and it s not really a complaint,of a personal observation , is that I would have liked it if Gaston had been.old fashioned He seemed very modernized for a ghost from the 1800s though the author does explain the whys in the book.All in all, I loved The Ghosts of Rue Dumaine and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good ghost story This review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official The Ghosts of Rue Dumaine is a great ghost story it captivated me and I flat out loved it Ms Weis has given us characters to love and dislike along with a very compelling love story The New Orleans setting is a favorite of mine and Ms Weis brings it to life for me She has a talent for writing descriptions so vividly I am able to see the yellow stucco walls of Danica s house, the French

brandy when Gaston is in the room Gaston became so real to me that I found myself falling for him and hoping albeit, a bit unrealistically he and Danica could find a way to be together There are several threads to the plotline and a couple of twists, things I didn t see coming I was so wrapped up in the story that, at one point, I found myself in tears I love when an author can evoke that kind of emotion from me I also think that Ms Weis did a great job with the love making scenes Perhaps a bit descriptive for some, I found them to be very well written and appropriate to the story.The Ghosts of Rue Dumaine is a story I will read again and one I would recommend I am looking forward to readingof Ms Weis books I love her voice.Rating 5Heat Rating HotReviewed by Karen CReview Courtesy
