Editorial Reviews

Ohioana Quarterly
A real page-turner of a story--descriptive detail brings the reader on the scene--characters come to life through Carl's ear for everyday dialog. Especially spell-binding is the realistic description of the ghostly presence. The reader is drawn into the mystery as well as the love story that unfolds.
Rave Reviews
Gothic fans will be overjoyed--all the trappings of that subgenre are present, but the setting is decidedly modern.
Heartland Critiques
here are ghoulies and ghosties (honest) and long leggety beasties (a wonderful cat) and a myriad of things that go bump in the night--a host of suspects to sift through--not your common romance, but then, who said romance had to be common?
Fosfax
A Gothic novel with a twist--this is a fantastic story in more ways than one--a novel of gradually intensifying tension, as the incidents go from the odd, the mildly frightening, to the very dangerous--a very fine book.

I really liked the Jean Fairbair/Alasdair Cameron series of books, so was interested in getting the backstory on two of the other characters in those books.  Enjoyed that Rebecca was from Missouri, and thought the book was well written and very interesting.   The only complaint was the constant sparring between Rebecca and Michael.  While I realize that romantic tension is a tried and true formula, I was really glad when they got beyond that and formed a strong friendship.  I have really enjoyed all of Ms. Carl's books, and will definitely read whatever she chooses to publish!

Side note, I'm no longer part of BloodClan. That ended last night when Thistlefang and I fought.
