Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Stockenberg ( Emily's Ghost ) cements her reputation for fine storytelling with this deft blend of mystery and romance. Meg Hazard has big troubles. She's trying to keep her family's bed-and-breakfast in Bar Harbor, Maine, afloat. Then handsome former Chicago cop Tom Wyler moves into the neighborhood looking for peace and quiet, and becomes infatuated with Meg's gorgeous sister Allie, a recovering alcoholic. To top it all off, the reclusive town eccentric, Orel Tremblay, summons Meg to his side, eager to impart details of a dark and tragic past before he dies. Meg finds herself caught up in the mystery surrounding the Great Fire of 1947 and her grandmother's death. When Meg begins to see visions from her grandmother's past, she is forced to take Orel's hints of murder and thwarted love seriously and soon becomes determined to dig up the long-buried truth. Undeniably attracted to Tom, Meg tries to deny her feelings for Allie's sake. By seamlessly alternating the suspense of a growing romance with that of an evolving mystery, the author keeps the reader hungry for more. Stockenberg, who won a RITA for the paranormal category in 1993, is sure to win more kudos for her latest. (Aug.)
Library Journal
When practical, no-nonsense Meg Hazard inherits a dollhouse that is an exact replica of the house in which her grandmother tragically burned to death years ago, her life takes a dramatic turn as she is compelled to seek the answers to long-kept secrets-and unmask a murderer. Ghosts, danger, and a passionate, unlooked-for love (in the form of detective Tom Wyler) thoroughly-and most satisfactorily-complicate Meg's life in this well-written, engaging story of two caring people who have all but given up on finding love. Readers who enjoy reading Stockenberg's work (Emily's Ghost, Dell, 1992) might find the novels of Kristin Hannah and LaVyrl Spencer (without the "ghostly" influence) of interest.

Fun tale centered around the great fire in Bar Harbor, Maine. It includes supernatural events with a twist at the end and love interests.

I enjoy these lite mysteries as opposed to dark murder mysteries. Embers did not let me down. I enjoyed the characters and plot was great with twist and turns. A good mystery always leaves a reader wanting to know more about the characters. In this book the elaborate dollhouse was a character and I wanted to know more about it. A great read for end of summer day on your deck.

Stockenberg writes beautifully. The characters are deep and alive. The scenic majesty of Acadia, Bar Harbor and the coast of Maine are vivid and memorable.
