    Ghost exorcism, no pea soup involved

    4.5

    *Book source ~ Many thanks to Entangled for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Jade Clarence is an exorcist, but she doesn’t like the way the family business handles exorcisms. Her great-grandfather started the business after his wife was killed by a spirit and his incantations destroy the soul of the spirit causing extreme pain to the ghost. Jade feels that she can find an incantation to send a spirit on without destroying the soul or causing pain. She also feels that a good spirit should have the right to stay if it wants. However, after allowing the spirit of a teen hoodwink her into believing he is benign, he kills the property owner where he is hanging out. A tragedy that falls on Jade’s shoulders since she refused to perform the exorcism. Her older brother is giving her a chance to redeem herself with an exorcism at Hutchinson’s Falls. If she can’t do her job he’ll have no choice but to kick her out of the business. But Jade finds out that Dutch is no ordinary ghost, so she doesn’t do the job. When her brother comes to do what she can’t, Jade is forced to resort to extreme measures to make her point.

    This is a great short story with interesting aspects of exorcism and great characters. It could use a bit more character development because I couldn’t get a really good feel for Jade or Dutch, but for a short it is pretty good. I’m a little fuzzy about what Jade did there at the end and how that’s going to work for the long term, but I’ll suspend belief and just go with it. I don’t think I’ve ever read a story involving exorcists, so that aspect of the story was fascinating to me. I look forward to reading more stories by Sarah Gilman.

    Quick, fun read. A sexy ghost and an exorcist with a soft streak

    Quick, fun read. A sexy ghost and an exorcist with a soft streak make an interesting and entertaining match. I wanted to know a little more about Dutch's background, have a few more details on his death and how, exactly, their plans for the future could really work, but overall this was a great story that I really enjoyed. It's my second book by Sarah Gilman in the last two days and I'm enjoying her writing. Can't wait to read more!

    Jade Clarence's family has been in the business of exorcism





    Jade Clarence's family has been in the business of exorcism for generations. When Jade royally screws up on the job, her brothers decide to give her one more chance to prove that she can handle such a strenuous career, or they'll oust her from the business for her own good. Her last chance is to perform an exorcism at a Maine state park. There, she meets Dutch Hutchinson, and finds that the job won't be as simple as she'd anticipated. 
    Another enjoyable novella from Entangled Publishing! I was a bit concerned at first, after reading Ghosts of Kingston Cottage, because there appeared to be a lot of similarities at first: it's a ghost professional performing her services in Maine, as is the case of GoKC. Even the titles are similar. But the similarities ended there. In this case, Jade falls in love with the very ghost she's been sent to exorcise. 
     
    This novella did a good job of telling a story that I enjoyed and wrapping it up to the point where I was okay with finishing it in less than 60 pages. The story was told to my satisfaction, but there's still room for the potential development of a series, which is an optimal situation for an author to achieve. 
     
    Although Jade and Dutch did hook up pretty fast, I didn't feel like the progression of their relationship quite qualified as instalove since, thankfully, they avoided using the words "I love you." Things did progress quickly and they proclaimed their intentions to stay together for the longterm after a very short amount of time, but in this case, I was able to suspend my disbelief. It also helped that neither seemed to have significant trust issues that would have kept them from jumping in as fast as they did. And, just in case you were wondering, the romance is great. 
     
    Overall, this was a quick read that hooked my attention early on and told a sweet romance story. If you're into supernatural romance and you don't have time to read a full length novel, I would definitely recommend this book to you.

    New Twist on a Paranormal Romance... *ARC provided by Entangled

    New Twist on a Paranormal Romance...
    *ARC provided by Entangled Publishing for an honest review*

    4 out of 5 stars

    In Ghosts of the Falls by Sarah Gilman, Jade Clarence is one of a long line of exorcists in her family. Still reeling from a recent mistake that cost someone their life, she must do a stellar job dealing with her latest case or risk being fired. She wishes to continue with the family business, but needs to find a way to do so and not harm non-malevolent spirits.

    "No one in my family has encountered a spirit like you in my lifetime."

    When Jade meets Dutch Hutchinson, she's instantly drawn to him like no other man before. Finding out his true identity only makes the situation more difficult. She must then decide between performing the exorcism as planned, or coming up with a solution to keep them together somehow.

    "I promised you many more nights, and I make good on my promises."

    Dutch has spent over a century in the same Maine woods near the site of his death. His plan devised to force Jade to perform an exorcism backfires when he becomes entranced with the beautiful woman. After being lonely for so many decades, it feels wonderful to talk and connect with someone who understands his situation. Dutch is torn between freeing himself to move on spiritually or staying on earth to have more time with Jade.

    'A date, even if it wasn't really a date, would be a good note on which to end his dead-end existence.'

    Ghosts of the Falls is a quick, but very moving novella. The premise behind the story is very interesting and made me almost a bit sad to think about a spirit unable to move on for a century, and how lonely Dutch must have felt. To finally find someone he could communicate with must have been a huge blessing.

    I loved how Jade was looking for a better way to perform exorcisms so they weren't so harmful to non-malevolent spirits, showing compassion in her character. It was a good match of course for Dutch's situation. The idea of a human falling for a corporeal spirit may make some people a little squeamish, but this was done in such a manner that it felt natural to the storyline.

    I really enjoyed Ghosts of the Falls and think it's certainly worth a read. Especially if you like a new twist on paranormal romance.

    booksbysteph says "Informative and Entertaining"



    Dutch called Jade to come to a state park in Maine to exorcise a ghost. "Over a hundred years ago, a logger got knocked into the river by a falling tree and fell into the gorge." Jade asked Dutch to take her to the burial site so she can bind the ghost to his grave and he will not be powerful enough to fit back.

    On their hike through the forest to the site, Dutch asks a lot of questions about exorcising a ghost. Jade explains "[i]t takes a significant event or events to bind a spirit to earth" that would explain his continued presence. Dutch tells her tales of ghost sightings so real that they could touch and talk to the ghost. "Spirits powerful enough to assume corporeal form are the rarest kind. There have only been a couple observed by exorcists in recorded history."

    Dutch really likes Jade, but when she asks him out to dinner, he turns her down. Deflated, Jade starts an incantation and watches Dutch disappear before her eyes. Putting together pieces of the puzzle, Jade realizes that Dutch is the ghost. But what she does not understand is why he would call for his own exorcism.

    I GIVE THIS BOOK: 5 Stars

    Short and sweet. Informative but not distracting.

    I found this novella to be quite wonderful. My first story about a ghost who can be seen, touched and talked to as if it were alive. The author provided so much information that did not distract you from the story. Having Dutch ask the questions allowed the reader to learn about the process of an exorcism and ghost related facts that actually draws the reader into the story further. And you learn so much about the two characters in a short hike that even though it seems like an impossible situation that they are in, you are rooting for them.

    You will get lost in the knowledge this story tells, the love this story creates, and the hope this story rests upon. Wonderful way to pass an hour by reading this story.

    Until next time, live life one page at a time!

    3.5 stars Ghosts of the Falls was a cute ghost story. The story

    3.5 stars
    Ghosts of the Falls was a cute ghost story. The story line was very interesting, but I wish it was longer because I felt like everything happened too quickly in order to make it this short. If you’re looking for a quick romance that includes ghosts, you won’t be disappointed. 

    Jade Clarence needs to prove that she is able to handle her job as an exorcist in the family business. There are rules that the family follows when exorcising a ghost, but there are some of those rules that she does not care to use at all. She trusted a ghost once, and it cost the life of the woman who had hired her. Knowing that the job that’s waiting is her last chance to prove to her brothers that she really can do her job has her hoping it will be easy. 

    Dutch Hutchinson has been haunting the state park for over a century, but he’s tired of wandering and wants to be able to finally rest in peace. When Jade shows up at the park to do the exorcism, Dutch decides to take on his human form to spend the end of his existence with her. As Jade spends time with Dutch she finds out who he really is, and they realize that they are falling in love with one another. But time is running out for Dutch. Her brothers want her to finish the job she was sent to do, and when they realize she may need help they show up to take over. Can she find a way to keep Dutch in her world, or will her chance at happiness be destroyed? 

    I received an e-ARC of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Jade Clarence messed up a job she had as a family exorcist. It is her families business and now she is out to prove she can do it right. Sent to Maine to get rid of a ghost who has been haunting a state park she is surprised at what she finds. Dutch Hutchinson died more than a century ago and is tired of being here. He wants to move on so he does a few things to get an exorcist called. When Jade shows up he takes a form to talk to her. Now he doesn't want to leave her. As they fall in love Jade's family arrives to threaten Dutch's stay. They have to fight if they want to be together.




    Jade has a really soft heart and it has caused her trouble before. She wants to help everyone whether they are living or not. She is a smart talented woman who is afraid to let her family down but will fight for what she wants. Dutch has nothing to stick around for and wants to just be gone. A life of loneliness has left him ready to give up. He had a bad past with his death that he needs to let go of. I really liked both these characters. They help each other and will do anything to be together.




    This is a short story but you get the full impact. The plot is a good one you don't see a lot of. An excorcist and a ghost falling for each once I read the blurb I knew I had to read the book. There is action as they have to try to save Dutch and see if they can be together. There is love as they begin to fall for each other and help each other overcome their past. They really talk to each other and work together. If you are looking for a good story that is a joy to read pick this one up and find out what happens when a ghost an exorcist fall in love.

    I loved Ghosts Of The Falls. It is a wonderful paranormal story

    I loved Ghosts Of The Falls. It is a wonderful paranormal story with a surprising twist. Jade Clarence is an exorcist, but a deadly tragedy in her last case has her doubting her instincts. She needs to succeed this time. Upon her arrival at Hutchinson State Park, she meets her client, Dutch Vernon. He wants the exorcism. What he doesn't tell her is that he is the ghost. He was killed in a logging accident when he was 24, but now after more than 100 years he is lonely. Dutch is a very strong spirit who can assume a human form. Jade and Dutch are drawn together and he tells her the truth. She wants to help him but will they be able to stay together? Sarah Gilman has taken a unique approach that brings you a touching, sensual romance as well as a great ghost story. I love Jade. She's a feisty 'Tinker Bell' who will fight to keep her love. Dutch is a very powerful ghost who makes you empathize with his pain and loneliness. Together they make a wonderful couple. A perfect story for a chilly, autumn day or anytime you want a great story..

    A ghost story from Entangled Publishing in time for Halloween
    Just in time for Halloween, here's a story of another ghost (Dutch Hutchinson) who is looking to leave this plane to the hereafter. In order to do so, he has to convince beautiful exorcist Jade (exorcism is her family business and calling) to help him pass on.
    As you'd guess, sparks fly when they meet and it's an interesting, albeit very short read (under 60 pages). I have to say I really wanted to like Ghosts of the Falls by Sarah Gilman a lot more than I did, but frankly the story didn't hold my interest.
    But if you like ghost stories and romances give it a try. Perhaps read it out loud at your Halloween party.

    Haunting and romantic, Ghosts of the Falls was a lovely read. This novella drew me in and I enjoyed every bit of it. 

    Jade is a exorcist, but it seems she might not have it in her to be so ruthless. She believes that the spirits should be given a chance to prove themselves good or bad, but her family doesn't agree. She's supposed to prove her ability as a exorcist in a new assignment. Only to find that the spirit is kind and only wants to be free.

    I liked both main characters. Jade was a strong heroine through her kindness. She was likable and willing to do anything for what she believes in. Dutch was so sweet. He wanted to move on to the next life, until he finally found something in this life that he wanted to hold on to. I really liked both characters.

    The romance was super sweet. Jade and Dutch were absolutely perfect together. As to the spicy part of their relationship, I would call it more sensuous than hot, which I thought worked well with their relationship. I thought they were lovely together. 

    The plot was fast paced. I was hooked the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and I thought they ending was very appropriate for the story.

    Ghosts of the Falls was a lovely paranormal romance. I really enjoyed reading it. Lovers of romance, if you want a great, quick read, then you should definitely check this book out.

    A totally different ghost story....a ghost who isn't exactly dead and a caring lady who wants to help him despite her brothers plans for him.

    A very short novella. Interesting but too short.

    The reader barely has time to meet the characters that they are already attracted to each other and their secrets are revealed. Worse, there was barely time to enjoy the start of the romance that already it is threatened ...

    The fact that the story is so short has not allow me to appreciate the true value of a plot that deserved to be thorough and detailed.
    So I liked the story, but I was not be touched or moved by the characters or emotions because everything goes too fast.

    Ghosts of the Falls by Sarah Gilman

    Jade Clarence is an exorcist. Dutch Vernon called to have the ghost exorcized. Jade feels guilty if exercising an innocent ghost because it causes them extreme pain. But this ghost is powerful and can take corporal form. Does that make it dangerous?

    This short 60 page novella is a slightly different twist on ghosts and exorcism and it's mixed with a sweet love story. I enjoyed this short read for its hope and resolution. Very nice.

    I received an early copy from the publisher.

    Every once in a while you get the pleasure of reading a book that not only is not what you had expected but it also leaves you wanting more and more and more. This is one of those books. Jade is a female exorcist in an all-male family of them who sets out to prove she can still do her job. Dutch is a ghost who has been in our world for what he perceives to be too long and is ready to be exorcized so he calls in Jade and her family. Little does Jade know going in to this case what is awaiting her and man is it explosive! This is a definite must read ¿

     Jade Clarence was born into a family of exorcists who believe the only good
    lingering spirit is a destroyed lingering spirit. Bucking family tradition, Jade
    believes that some spirits are not inherently evil and is trying to discover a way
    to help the spirit move on rather than painfully destroy the lost souls.

     Dutch Hutchinson has been trapped on the mortal plain since his tragic death
    over a hundred years ago. Tired of his lonely existence he uses his energy to
    contact the Clarence family to perform an exorcism, leaving out some very
    important details. Meeting Jade may just give Dutch a chance to hang around.

     I'm going to lay some honesty on you right now. I agreed to review several book
     in order to receive the newest release of another author. Smack me hard and
    call me stupid. This little short story stole the show big time. Sarah Gilman just
    blew me away in less than a hundred pages. I fell right into Dutch's predicament
    and was emotionally invested by the end of the first chapter. I flew through this
    story in record time and reread it the next day just to make sure it was as good
    as I had originally thought. It absolutely was. The characters were extremely
    engaging and well developed. The story was fraught with deep emotion, light
    humor and enough spice to keep it on the hot scale. There is of course a
    quasi-villain in the mix and a dilemma to overcome. Think all this couldn't
    possibly be covered in seventy pages? Give it a read and find out.

    This book is short but great story. Jade is following in her family foot steps and does exorcisms. She is having a hard time with an innocent woman dying because a ghost tricked her in believing it was innocent and was anything but. She been trying to find a way to exorcise ghost without being painful. Dutch is a ghost died many years ago and wants an exorcism, so he can move on. He calls and Jade comes to see the place. Jade sees this handsome man and wonders about asking him to dinner but she doesn't know he is really a ghost that can look real and move things. Dutch thinks if he's going to go at least it's by a beautiful woman. They have dinner and talk about things. Jade can't do the exorcism for Dutch because he is innocent. She tells her brother that and he doesn't approve. He comes out to do the exorcism and Jade stops him by bounding herself to Dutch. So if they do the exorcism it would kill her too.
