A mysterious tale written by Rosie Walsh, “Ghosted” begs the reader to rethink of the term “ghosting” in a whole new light. Sarah and Eddie meet in a sacred place and have an instant love connection. But when Eddie goes on holiday and does not contact Sarah, she begins to question if he truly felt the spark. Through the journey of the book, you meet lovable characters like Tommy and Jo who comfort Sarah in the wake of being “ghosted.” Secrets unfold and by the end of the book you are confused about how this is at all possible in the best possible way.

“Ghosted” was my March 2018 Book of the Month selection. The subscription-based service brings a book (or a few!) directly to your door each month. No more late library fees!

My favorite part of the service, besides the beautiful jacket covers that decorate the coffee table? Being presented with options that are best suited to your literature taste.

The story was a slow starter yet once the first breakthrough was revealed, I could not put it down. I became entangled with Sarah and Eddie’s love story and their history. Eddie’s mother became a character I loved to hate and showed up spectacularly through the writing. There were a few moments I spoke the phrase “Did that just happen?” aloud.

As this was author Rosie Walsh’s American debut, there were some England influences that took a bit of getting used to. Moving through the book, I started to look forward to the cultural differences that the book offered.

For its secret telling and can’t-believe-that-just-happened attitude but a slow start, I give the book 4.5 stars.
