The girl he finally remembers
Eleven years ago, a shipwreck robbed Lord Maxim Farlisle of his memory. Recovering himself, he journeys to his childhood home to find Waithe Hall shut and deserted. Unwilling to face what remains of his family, Maxim makes his home in the abandoned hall…only to have a determined ghost hunter invade his uneasy peace.
The boy she never forgot
Fascinated by spirits, Lady Alexandra Torrence cannot disregard the opportunity to investigate the estate she knew so well. She arrives at the shuttered hall to discover a ghost of a different kind—the boy she thought to never see again. Maxim had been the boy next door, her best friend, her soul mate…and then he’d vanished.
As the two rediscover their connection, the promise of young love burns into an overwhelming passion. But the time apart has scarred them both—will they discover a love that will draw them together or will the past tear them apart forever?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Ghost hunting, a ghost back from the dead, strong attraction, and more. I enjoyed this read very much. Alexandra was so accepting of Maxim, once she realized he was still alive. Her love survived the years and she helped his self-confidence by being herself. Maxim had been through a lot, though with more detail I could have felt more emotion. His self-doubt had shaped the adult he had become, but his heart remembered Alexandra. This was a good story, and I recommend it. I received an ARC through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.
This is a new to me author and it was a lovely read. I enjoyed the chance for Maxim and Alexandra to find each other again and find their HEA. This was an interesting approach to finding a lost friend and love. I found Alexandra very intriguing, her independence and matter of fact way of dealing with her “investigation.” Maxim was charming and it was fun watching him rediscover his past and grab hold of a future he was not sure he deserved or was worthy of. Ms. Dean’s use of dyslexia to humble Maxim was well done and Alexandra’s acceptance of and decision to help him find someone to help him was delightful. While we saw into the future with the epilogue, I hope the reunion is covered in coming stories. I am looking forward to the stories of Maxim’s brothers. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I rated this 3.5 stars and rounded up.
Finding Lord Farlisle is the first book I have read by Cassandra Dean. I thought this historical romance was a great read. The vivid details and descriptions sent me back in time to nineteenth century England. The plot is intriguing with a few twists and turns. I never knew what would happen next. I am giving Finding Lord Farlisle four and a half stars. I highly recommend it to other readers who enjoy historical romance. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future. Fabulous read! I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
