Determined to prove she’s fit for the family business, exorcist Jade Clarence knows the assignment waiting in Maine is her last chance. Born into a family of exorcists, Jade’s unorthodox ideas have gotten her into trouble in the past…and cost the life of a client.
After haunting a Maine state park for more than a century, Dutch Hutchinson will do whatever it takes to bring an end to his unfulfilling existence. When an act of arson brings a beautiful exorcist to town, Dutch takes corporeal form in order to spend his last hours in her company.
Jade quickly uncovers Dutch’s true identity and finds herself falling for the man behind the spirit. But when Jade’s legacy threatens their future, they will have to overcome the greatest of odds—life and death.

3.5 stars. Do you ever have those times when you're not looking for in-depth world building or massive character background, but just want to get in, get to the heart of the story, then get out?
If so, and if you're also a fan of off-beat romances, then this might be your lucky day.

Some stories just leave you wanting more... in a good way. This is one of them.
Sarah Gilman achieved in 54 pages what some authors cannot do in 200.
I would love this story to be expanded into a full novel length. I am a very “mentally visual” reader. Descriptives that I can use to mentally place... ...more

This story was shorter than I expected and it left me wanting more, though in a good way. Gilman was able to create a beautifully written, well developed and perfectly structured story in such short length.
The plot line was really original, I havent read anything like that before. The story is re... ...more
Another lovely story from Sarah Gilman!

Ghosts of the Falls by Sarah Gilman

This was actually a lot cuter than I expected. And as much as I normally dislike short stories, it was the perfect length. The twist at the end was not what I expected to happen and it was a nice surprise. Different than most books. And my gosh, could Dutch have been any cuter? No wonder she fell... ...more
3.5 stars. I am rounding up on this one for sure becuase of the creativity of the story. It took me less than 1.5 hrs to read. In such a short time, it was hard for me to feel like I really got to know any of the characters. That said, it was an easy, light read that I recommend to anyone who has... ...more
Amazing! This short story packs a punch that had me experiencing extreme emotions. I'm an avid reader and can honestly say this story offered more than some full length novels I've read. This is unlike any ghost story I have ever read and I want more. ...more

I wanted more background but do recommend GOTF!
Even before a certain 90's movie featuring a murdered hero put ghosts as romantic figures on the map I was a fan of the idea. I'm not sure just what the allure for me was as a child but the idea of love beyond death seems universally appealing. I was... ...more

Jade asked Dutch to take her to the burial site so she can bind the ghost to his grave and he will not be powerful eno... ...more
What an awesome quick little read. My sole criticism: it wasn't long enough, it should be a full length story! Actually, with brothers, there's the potential for at least a 3 book series...!
What a great little world was built. The author managed to give me characters and some rules of a world in... ...more
