The Light at the End of the Road

All Samantha Williams wants is to find her way home. Her father's critically ill and the family doesn't believe he'll make it through the weekend. But the fates and Mother Nature aren't cooperating. Icy rain has caused highway closings along Sam's precipitous mountain route, and she's forced to take treacherous back roads. When her car hits black ice and skids into a ditch, Sam fears for her survival. Then a stranger appears on the scene to offer her a hand. Only, after a while, Sam starts to fear this handsome mystery man is leading her in the wrong direction...

Jake Marlow normally doesn't travel this road at night. In fact, he barely gets back to the country. But a business emergency has him taking chances with the weather in his trustworthy SUV. At least, he believed it trustworthy until it blew two tires this evening. Seeking shelter in the storm, he comes across a beautiful woman in even more dire circumstances than his own. While he's sure he's never met her, there's something about Samantha Williams he feels he knows. Driven to protect her and get her to safety, Jake's prepared to make any sacrifice. Yet the mysterious light they're chasing eludes them time and again.

This romantic ghost story is Samantha and Jake's story, who start out as strangers but due to circumstances beyond their control, find that they need to help each other get to where they need to be, and it is imperative that they both get there. You never know when or who will turn up as a ghost or a spirit. I really enjoyed this light, charming story. It is a stand alone book with the common elements being that they all take place in Virginia, and there is at least one ghost in each story. [I purchased this story with a gift card received from the author and because I loved The House at Homecoming Cove.]

This book was so great. The perfect ghost mystery and I wasnt sure what was going to happen or what the situation was. Would it be like the ghost next door? Or not? That was also an amazing book and totally took me by utter surprise. Love the creaky haunted house. These stories a awesome HEAs. Love the uniqueness of it. Completely awesome. Makes you really think. Loved the connection and feelings between the characters. Great book! Please write more of these ghost stories. Ill buy every one of them!

The Light at the End of the Road Review This book featured two characters who each had their own journey to make. While the story featured them as a couple, the author revealed that there were underlying themes in the book. Each theme was important to the development of the story as a whole and spoke to the creativeness of the author in keeping the reader engaged in the basic story of two individuals who fall in love while developing the thematic intent of the book. Salvation, redemption, true love, faithfulness, perverseness, and Christian values were all themes that emerged as significant in this book. The author wove a love story between the characters in a story within a story model that I really enjoyed to depict a journey towards the achievement of goals. I have read many Christian romance novels but this is by far the best that I have ever read. I would highly recommend this book. I just loved the whole premise of the book and it had surprise after surprise that added to the suspense and tension of not knowing if the characters would survive the challenges in the book. Well done!!

The Light at the End of the Road by Ginny Baird is a story that catches you from the first page and you just want's to keep reading. It's a bit paranormal with a nice romantic twist. It's nice written and keeps you on your toes and it's full of surprises that you don't see coming.

Samantha Williams is in a panic. Her father is critically ill so she needs to get home immediately. Unfortunately she's caught in a ice storm. When her car crashes, she is rescued by a stranger who risks his life to save her. They are alone and stranded. What happens next took my breath away. The Light at the End of the Road is a riveting paranormal love story. Sam and Jake are amazing characters. They are fated to be together. The dark, isolated mountains provide the perfect background. When they unexpectedly discovered Becky's diner, I shivered with anticipation. Ginny Baird has outdone herself. The way the pieces of this story fit together was amazing. I couldn't put this book down. I read it in one sitting. I had to know what would happen next. This carefully plotted story was filled with suspenseful tension and unexpected twists. This book is a keeper. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

A sweet romance with mystery and a hint of paranormal element. The story of Samantha and Jake, both very caring, strong willed characters. They both will do anything to help another person. They are both trying to get to the hospital for Sam's critically ill father. Many twists and turns in the story as they are following the light and the fog. This book will hook you in immediately and not let go until you finish. This will be on my reread list. I am not a big fan of paranormal but this is very mild and not defer from the story, a great addition. I highly recommend this story.

Ginny Baird's The Light at the End of the Road Black Ice….the condition all car drivers fear!!! Add fog, darkness, a back road to the mix of the ice storm that Samantha Williams is driving through as she rushes to the hospital. Her father is about to have surgery. She wants to arrive before his surgery. Then she loses control as she skids into a ditch!!! Jake Marlow is on a business trip. To avoid being held up on the main highway due to an accident, he takes a back road then gets two flat tires. Setting out to seek shelter, Jake comes upon Samantha’s car. Will Jake be able to save her? Will he be able to get to his business appointment? Will Samantha live to see her father again? Then there is a light. From where did the mysterious light appear? Vivid, well developed characters involved in a puzzling, twist turning plot. The author weaves together intrigue, mystery and romance from the past and present effortlessly. The story deals with, loss, grieving, chance and love. Make sure you read this novella to appreciate all that is involved. A good quick read beside being a compulsive page turner. Thank you to the author for this eBook. My opinion is my own.

What a heartwarming read of clean romance and a bit of paranormal. It deals with the concepts of love, loss and mortality. Each of the main characters were likeable and real. I have read other books by Ginny Baird, but this one is different. I normally don't like paranormal, but it isn't overdone as it truly makes the story with all the twists come alive for you. In fact you don't realize it has the touch of the paranormal until almost at the end. Another great novella from Ginny Baird, and definitely worth the read. I received a free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I was really surprised by this book. I have read many of Ginny Baird's books but all of those had been sweet romances. I really love the touch of paranormal in this book. Although I knew that the story was a mystery romance, I was not at all prepared for the plot. I think it was really interesting and hope that Ginny will continue to write more of such stories. The title The Light at the End of the Road, very aptly named, has so many meanings and I could just "see" the Light at the End of the Road. Beautifully written, this story will tug at your heartstrings.

On her way home for her father's emergency surgery, Sam has a life altering event. Traveling in one of the worst ice storms Virginia has seen in ages, she loses control and her car careens off of the road. Jake has been sent by his boss to handle some last minute affairs in the business. As a lawyer, he needs to be there before the night is over. When he ends up with 2 flat tires and begins walking, he comes upon a car that has went over in the ravine and is about to blow. Rescuing Sam, they embark on a journey through the icy night and happen upon some strange things. I was pleasantly surprised by the ending of this story and didn't expect it until the end. Great writing and a sense of mystery and the paranormal make for a great story. And the love story that develops between Sam and Jake in the in between is truly wonderful. New and refreshing twists.
