Gage Vicknair comes from an extraordinary
family. He and his siblings are mediums to lost souls who die
and are unable to immediately cross over into the spiritual
realm. When Gage starts to hear the shrill cry of a ghost, he
knows that he is going to be given the task of helping a
spirit cross. To refuse is not an option.
Gage is working his last few minutes of
his shift at the hospital before his vacation when an
ambulance brings in a woman who has been brutally stabbed.
Gage sees what no one else does Ė her spirit leaves her body
and implores his help to save a loved one. Now all Gage has
to do is find the woman, Makayla, and rescue her from danger
so that his latest spirit can happily go on to heaven.
Amnesiac Kayla has dreamed of him
nightly. She doesnít know who he is but he visits her dreams
and makes her want him so much it hurts. Unsure of who she is
or how she came to be in the shelter, Kayla spends her days
trying to figure out why she feels so close to her fantasy
man. Kayla doesnít remember very much from her past, only
bits and pieces. One thing is for certain; someone wants her
dead and Gage is her only hope at staying safe.
Ghosts and Roses is author
Kelley St. Johnís hauntingly beautiful follow up to Kiss and
Dwell, the first book of The Sexth Sense trilogy. Ghost
and Roses features playboy trauma doctor Gage Vicknair
and Makayla Sparks, the woman Gageís spirit implores him to
save. The chemistry between Gage and Kayla sizzles the pages
of Ghost and Roses and so I was fully engaged in
this story. The plot was unique and I like how realistic I
found the story. I know that mediums exist and supposedly
talk to deceased people. But Kelley St. Johnís ability to
bring these characters and her stories to life amazes me.
Thumbs up for Ghosts and Roses. I am now
looking forward to Shiver and Spice, the third and final book
of this incredible series.
