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.

    Okay.

    It was waaaay to long. It would have been a great book if it qas 400 pages shorter. Pretty slow. Some twists but easy to guess.

    slow and too long

    I found this story slow and I had a hard time staying focused. I predicted the outcome early on and became frustrated with how long it took the author to reveal what happened between the two main characters. This book is about 300 pages too long.

    Didn't really enjoy this read

    The main character was wayyyy too much into her own feelings and insecurities. Very selfcentered. Fickle. Up and down like a yoyo. I could not figure out what Doc Bradford saw in her. She carried way too much baggage and cared only for her own feelings. He should have dumped her. Sounds harsh i know but she just didn,t have both oars in the water.

    Suitable for Teenagers

    There wasnt much Romance, it was more of a Mystery novel. No Sex scenes so its suitable for your teenager.

    Did not care for this at all. Thought it dragged on too long. Was hoping it would have had more mystery to it.
