But when the book gets to the 50s and 60s, there is very little about Nat's music from these years. Daniel Mark Epstein is an excellent writer. He somehow puts you in the shoes of his subject and paints a picture of the place and time of the South Side of Chicago that leaves little to the imagination. When he writes of the jazz greats of that era playing their music it is pure poetry which one might expect from a poet.

When wealthy heiress Elinor MacLeish transports Fair Castle, her haunted home, from England to the United States, she is unprepared for the angry ghosts who move along with her

I didn't expect to like this story as much as I did.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS

Elinor MacLeish's grandparents own Fair Castle, now situated in New York by the Hudson River. Elinor has lived there her whole life. William Braddock, Baron of Norwood wants the castle back in his family. He has over 400 years of history invested in the castle and is determined to buy it back and rebuild it to it's former glory in England. The only problem; Elinor doesn't want her grandparents to sell...and she and Will butt heads repeatedly over the whole ordeal. While Will is polite and the perfect gentleman to Elinor's parents/grandparents...he and Elinor are both belligerent, obnoxious and rude toward each other. Through all their frustration and arguing, there are two ghosts inhabiting the castle with their own agenda.

I really liked this story. It was light and entertaining and full of mystery and suspense and a little bit of danger. I liked that the romance didn't overwhelm the suspenseful intrigue. I never got a solid grasp of the characters however, because their personal physical descriptions are so weak. And I'm the type of person who needs a solid character description to connect. The character's personality traits are described well, but what do they look like (other than hair/eye color, etc.) Still, I liked how Elinor unintentionally begins to break down Will's conservative, reserved mannerisms. She brings him to life. The two ghosts who have their own agenda was icing on the cake.

Fifty years ago a wealthy (at the time) American couple bought a small castle in England and moved it to a rural setting in New York. Less wealthy now, the elderly couple, their daughter and her husband, and two granddaughters call it home. Twice daily tours bring in needed cash to help with the upkeep. Elinor, the oldest granddaughter (an author and illustrator of children's books) is home for a few days and is giving the afternoon tour. An obnoxious Brit keeps correcting her on matters of history and the castle itself. By the end of the tour she is ready to strangle him. When she learns that the odious man is a Baron and is here to try to buy back his ancestral home, she dislikes the man even more. I laughed so much at the antics of Elinor and Will, the Baron. Elinor has a wicked tongue and a rapier wit..and isn't afraid to use it. (Their "omelet dialogue" is one of my favorites!) This book has it all: humor, mystery, GHOSTS, and a truly weird villain. I'm sure that I will reread this book at a later time and I have recommended it to several of my friends.

If you go only by the author's description of the book, you'll miss out on a spectacular read. The story is so much more than that brief description. I have not been disappointed once. I'm just glad I have a few more books to read. Great author. Great stories.

Anasius
This sounded like a different spin on your typical romance: The Baron can afford to buy back the ancestral castle, the feisty heroine doesn't want to sell and their are ghosts complicating the matter. The execution was tortured and slow. The first half of the book is largely impressions of the heroine who came across as selfish and immature. She had no regard for the economics of the situation and was nasty not feisty. As a result the book was very slow going and I almost didn't finish it. The ghosts are mere confusing snippets and it is difficult even at the end to understand who they were and whose side they were on. The book eventually resolved into the typical happily ever after but it wasn't an enjoyable read due to the nasty heroine and confusing plot line. She needs a better editor

This is a good book. Almost missed it because of negative reviews. I don't like books where the main characters are unlikable. Some of the reviews said the heroine was unlikable. But Kristen Hannah said it was awesome and it was about a castle so I took a chance. Glad I did. Elinour the heroine was fighting to keep her home (The castle) and I thought her feelings and actions toward the hero were justified. Despite all that, love conquers all and the secondary characters were charming . Add some ghosts, a sneaky villian, and you have a most enjoyable read. My first book by this author. Will read more.

Whitesmasher
The basic premise of the book had potential. The story just was not laid out well. It was 55% through the book before the central conflict became obvious. The dialogue was flat. The characters were not well developed. I wanted to like the book. It just did not deliver.

Silverbrew
I thoroughly enjoyed this modern castle tale. It has an entertaining blend of legend, ghosts and modern life, and well-drawn characters that made it a very cozy, mysterious romance. I'm still thinking about it, days after finishing this book.

This story kept me turning pages and not wanting to stop so I could see what happened next. I wasn't disappointed. It's already been described as a modern day fairy tale, but that's the best description I can think of.
