“If you’re looking to escape to a seaside town, fill your mind with cottage core dreaminess, have that small touch of The Others spookiness and angst, (not too much though!) and beautiful enchantment of Practical Magic, this is the book to read. Haunted Souls by new romance author, Christina D. Ambrose is a heart-strings-pulling story of Abby, a woman cursed with having lost her true love to the sea. And how her true love’s spirit finds her. As a paranormal ghost romance reader, Haunted Souls gave me the deep other-worldly meant-for-each-other pull that I crave. With the flashbacks and spiritual pull between them, I was aching for Abby and her beau, William to finally be together. I was emotionally gripped (they didn’t have enough time on Earth together!) and was rooting for them to be together, even saying out loud, “I wouldn’t care what it took, I’d be with him.” What made this very special to me was how easily I escaped to the universe Christina created. I rarely am in a town by the sea, but I felt like I knew this place. Felt like I’ve traveled there. Felt like I’ve walked right by Abby and Will and Frederick. The ending is deeply satisfying and it stayed with me for days.”
