This book touched me from the first page. As Joy finds herself back in her hometown she realizes what I think most of us do, why am I here? Stories from her past begin to haunt her as she moves into an all to familiar house where so many of childhood memories took place. This book was a page turner for me, and had a great love story in the end.

I have to be honest, at first I was really interested in this story but then it became an endless cycle of "Joy" being a whiner. Even though I don't normally read stories about paranormal themes, it started out interesting. Then it was just to ridiculous how Joy was just continuing to stay in her home even though all these weird things kept happening. It wasn't like she didn't have nowhere else to go. Jeff, I felt sorry for, he was treated like a leper by Joy. An yet he still feels for her. Why would he? She never gave him hope, shut him down and told him off time and time and he still doesn't give up? This was when I kept waiting for her to snap out of it. The title of the book says it all. it was A Long Time in Coming. For it to be wrapped up when her "ghost friend Jenny" had to step in and basically throw her at him, well I was like "Really, that's how their going to get together?" That left me cold, she couldn't figure it out before then, it was like she had been the one in the car accident and she was brain damaged, that would have explained her stupidity better. I'd like to give it two stars, but since I was suckered into reading the whole stinking story I have to give it three.

    Too wordy

    This story could have easily been told in 200 pages rather than over 700. I got bored with all the fluff and started skimming pages just to get to the meat of the story. I did want to know the details of the accident, so that's what kept me reading, but to read every word of this rambling story would have been near torture.

    Terrific read!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was well-written and contained just the right amount of 'cat-and-mouse' intrigue to make it a page-turner. Romantic enough to give you a good feeling but not over the top. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to sit by the pool or on the patio enjoying their day.

    No book!

    Nothing! Where there should be pages there is only black. How does that happen and Barnes & Noble not know or do anything about it? If I could have given zero stars I would have.
