Penelope's Ghost Blog Tour [Review, Interview, and Giveaway]

Penelope's Ghost by Goldie Alexander

Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Suspense, Contemporary

Haunted. Haunting. Redeemed.

When Lisa Harbinger takes a job as nanny to a prestigious Australian family, she gets more than she bargained for: two spoilt children, vengeful ghosts, a long-unsolved mystery and a blazing passion she and her enigmatic boss are unable to deny.
The Good:
  • Very descriptive
  • Good character development
  • Original
The Bad:
  • Rushed at times
The Gif:
  If I had to describe the romance in this book with just one word, I'd use sweet. The entire story itself is very good, and I found it to be an enjoyable read. Goldie Alexander is an established writer, and Penelope's Ghost is a testament to that. It was good for a light but mysterious break from some of my normal reading.

  The characters were the part that I enjoyed the most. A lot of attention was given to details. This gave all of the characters a unique and authentic voice. But I feel like the title was misleading a bit. Because of it, I expected Penelope's Ghost to focus more on the ghost story. Yet, I still enjoyed reading this.

  Parts of the story did seem rushed in an effort to get through necessary parts of the plot. It wasn't too distracting, but I did notice it. The love story as I said is sweet. If you're looking for passion and tearing of clothes, you'll be disappointed. If you're like me and don't mind your romance served sweet with a heap of mystery, you'll definitely enjoy what Penelope's Ghost by Goldie Alexander has to offer.
