Especially when she meets Logan, a gorgeous, elusive ghost who has haunted the castle grounds for decades. Ivy is immediately drawn to him . . . but Logan is not the only spirit around. Something dark and deadly is afoot, and soon Ivy finds herself in mortal danger.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanna Sciarrotta
When Ivy Calhoun's mother remarries, she is forced to leave everything behind and move into an old castle in the Scottish highlands. Though Ivy is more than ready for a fresh start following the death of her father, she is not quite prepared for the mysterious noises, nighttime attacks, and the boy that only she can see. Ivy spends more and more time with Logan and is determined to solve the mystery of his death and why exactly his spirit cannot move on. In the process, however, she finds herself falling in love with the ghost of this long dead boy that she couldn't possibly ever be with, or could she? The main characters in this novel of forbidden love are likeable and compelling, however, there is a cast of minor characters that have little or no relevance to the actual plotline of the story. Though not as beautifully written, the storyline is reminiscent of the forbidden love in Laura Whitcomb's A Certain Slant of Light and readers will be drawn into this love story just as easily. Reviewer: Jeanna Sciarrotta
VOYA - Nancy Pierce
Ivy Calhoun is mourning the loss of her father, and in the process, loses friends and her sense of happiness. Yet her mother has managed to move on and marry again, to a Scotsman with a title and a castle where Ivy will now live. Some may find the move an adventure, but Ivy soon realizes her new reality is no fairy tale, but rather, a nightmare. On Ivy's first day, she meets her stepfather's grandmother who openly dislikes her, but even worse, Ivy encounters supernatural occurrences—items floating, disembodied voices, and threatening attacks. Into the mix comes Logan, an eighteen-year-old ghost, dead for decades. Ivy is at first scared, but then attracted, to Logan. She finds they are soul mates who, in all likelihood, will never truly be together unless Ivy and her new friends can piece together the mystery that sent Logan into the supernatural world and bring him back to earth—forevermore. Forevermore has a contemporary setting, but its feel is gothic; one cannot help but think of the classics Jane Eyre or Rebecca as the story begins. Young girls will be especially attracted to the allure of a romance with a dream-like boy with a Scottish brogue—an unattainable love. Ivy struggles to adjust to her new home and step-family, but is quick to make new friends at school, and the modern use of texting reminds us this very old-fashioned love story is happening in the present. The story may seem all too familiar to a seasoned reader, but for lower middle school readers, it is a nice introduction to classic romance. Reviewer: Nancy Pierce

    Forevermore

    Forevermore is one of my favorite new books. I've always loved romance novels of all types-paranormal, historical, ect. But this was a perfect blend of both paranormal and historical romance. The book also had many other genres too. Forevermore is a must read. This particular book was very creative and played woth your emotions-it made me tear up and laugh and long to have what Logan and Ivy have. Logan and Ivy are the main characters. The others are Emma, Serrus, her mom, her step-father- Niall, Elizabeth, Amelia, Ethan, all the Munros, Jonas, & Ian. The summary is Ivy is forced to move from SC,USA to a rather creepy castle in the Scottish countryside. A dark, evil is lurking in the shadows that immediately puts Ivy in grave danger. A gorgeous ghost from the 19th century named Logan Munro names himself official protector of Ivy. Together Logan and Ivy become a team, a team that investigates Logan life in order to find clues. Logan and Ivy fall fast for each other but is this a forbidden love? Read the book to find out. It will not disappoint you. I hope this review helped you select a wonderful read.

    4.5 Stars

    I really enjoyed the plot line of this story. I thought that it was unique, interesting, and entertaining. The author did a wonderful job bringing this story idea to life. The book flowed easily and I loved how the mystery and romance were mixed together. I was kept guessing to the very end. The foreshadowing was done excellently and I enjoyed getting these hints throughout the book. I really enjoyed the ending and I think many future readers will be happy with the conclusion of the book.

    Ivy was a character that many other characters could learn something from. She didn’t let anything get to her and wasn’t afraid to fight for the people she loves. She was brave and didn’t let past hurts distract her from her duty. I really enjoyed reading the book from her perspective and I liked how the author brought her emotions forth and made them believable throughout the book.

    Logan was an interesting character because of the fact that he is a ghost. Yet his ghostly character wasn’t overdone and cringe worthy. He was a believable character that had a profound effect on the book by adding to the drama and the plot. Without him the book wouldn’t be as interesting and unique.

    Overall this book was very enjoyable and a fun easy read. I would love to read more books by this author an am keeping an eye out for them.

    I was ready to read this book after reading that it is about a g

    I was ready to read this book after reading that it is about a ghost, love, and a scottish castle.  I really adored the unique and interesting storyline of this book. It was an entertaining and enjoyable read. The author did a terrific job bringing this tale to life. The book flowed well and I was delighted by how the mystery and romance were blended together. I was trying to (along with Ivy) figure things out all the way to the very end. The foretelling was done well and it was fun getting those hints throughout the book. The ending was great and I am hoping to read more books like this, especially if they tie in with this one.
    After her mother marries a scottish prince, violin genius, Ivy, is on her way to a new life in Scottland at Glenmorrag Castle.  Here she meets Logan, a handsome ghost of a boy. When she arrives she is introduced to her new step father's grandmother, Lady Elizabeth, who doesn't seem to want her there. In fact she is unfriendly and cold, to the point of being malicious. Ivy also keeps hearing a voice telling her to leave.  Yet, she attempts to ignore both and fit into her new home and life. 
    Ivy is a character that many others could learn a few things from. She doesn’t let anything knock her down and isn't afraid to fight for the people she loves. She is brave and doesn't let her past troubles distract her from what she wants. I appreciate how the author brought her emotions out and made them believable and relatable throughout the book.
    Logan's character is interesting because, he's a ghost. Though his ghostlyness wasn’t overdone or cheesy.  He was a credible character that had a deep impact in the book by adding to the drama and storyline. Without him the book wouldn’t have been as pleasurable.  Though I wish I would have learned more about him and his past.
    I would love to read more books by this author and will keep an eye out for them.

    A true paranormal romance, Forevermore is about how Ivy falls in

    A true paranormal romance, Forevermore is about how Ivy falls in love with Logan, befriends Logan's living relatives, and solves the mystery behind Logan's death. I really enjoyed watching Ivy and Logan grow to love each other and how well the two work together. What makes it even better is the mysterious Scottish Highlands setting. The author does a great job describing the Highland, and I can picture the gloomy castle and the enchanting cliffside.
    Ivy Calhoun is the most likable character. Though she doesn’t really know her step-father Niall MacAllister, her step-grandmother Lady Elizabeth doesn’t want her there, and another unseen voice keeps telling her to leave, she is a gutsy girl who decides to make the most of her new life. She also isn't afraid to fight for her beliefs. Despite being warned of evil in the castle that wants to get rid of her and her mother, she chooses to confront it. I especially like how she doesn't try to do everything on her own like other teenagers would in her situation; she'll ask for help when she needs it.
    On the other hand, I feel as though I didn't really get to know the love interest. I know that Logan has been trapped wandering the moors for two hundred years oblivious to how he died and why he is trapped in the castle. However, I never really got to know his past or Logan himself in detail. I wish that the story were longer, so I could get to know Logan better.
    Forevermore is a romantic story filled with castles, ghosts, and intrigue. I love the twist in the story and how things turns out. The ending is one that paranormal romance lovers will like to see. Overall, it is very sweet and touching story, and the short length makes for a quick, enjoyable summer read.

    I went into Forevermore hoping for a cute and light read, and I

    I went into Forevermore hoping for a cute and light read, and I was not disappointed. This novel is adorably sweet and touching. The characters are well-developed, the setting is amazing, and the world-building is top-notch. Miles is a wonderful writer, and the prose flowed nicely. The pacing is spot-on, and the plot kept me hooked until the very end. If you're looking for a light, happy, YA Paranormal Romance, then this book is for you. 




    Ivy is one of the most likable heroines I've ever read. She's not a brat, but she's strong and tough in her own way. Without the snark and without pushing people away, she shows an inner strength that is lacking in many YA novels. She's selfless and caring, and she fights for what she wants and what she believes in. I truly enjoyed reading from her perspective.




    While the secondary characters are well-developed, I wish we could have gotten to know Logan a bit better. I mean I feel like I know who he is in the novel, but I wanted to know a bit about his past, too. I feel like we learned more about Emma, the BFF, than we did about Logan. However, Logan is also a strong character, from what I can tell, and he's not angsty and tortured like so many YA love interests. This was a refreshing change. 




    I absolutely loved the setting. I'm obsessed with Scotland, and Miles does an excellent job of describing the Highlands. I felt like I was there! The Scottish Highlands were almost another character in the novel, and I really liked that. Also, Miles' use of the Gaelic language and the description of the accents added to the environment. The world-building is also well-described and easy to understand, and the plot is intriguing. There is a bit of mystery and urgency throughout due to Elizabeth's hatred of Ivy and her subsequent actions. Ivy, unlike most teenagers, turns to adults for help, though. She leaves her family out of it, but she has adult and teenage friends, which I liked. As an only child, too, I can attest that most only children get along with adults as well as they do people their own age, normally. It seemed more realistic that she had friends who were grown-ups, and that she trusted them than it would have for her to handle everything on her own. 




    Overall I absolutely adored this book and would recommend it to anyone who wants to read a "feel good" novel that is set in an enchanting place. Forevermore is a great summer read and should not be missed!
