I just absolutely adored Waiting for Patrick! I think one of the things I love about ghost stories of any sub-genre is that you get a blend of contemporary and historical along with the paranormal. Waiting is no different. For the contemporary you have Elliot who buys run down properties, restores them, and resells them. With his latest purchase he finds a home that speaks to him, in a way quite literally. He begins to dream but are these only dreams? You'll have to discover that for yourself. As for the historical side, you have Ben, the resident ghost who is waiting for his lost love and has been doing so for over 150 years. Of course, Ben is stuck in the home so his travel is limited but then Elliot shows up and maybe his waiting is over. Again, for that you'll have to read the story yourself. Waiting for Patrick is not only a great blend of contemporary, historical, and paranormal but it also has a small but very eclectic cast of characters that on the surface probably shouldn't work but the author makes them not only work but makes them family. I really hated to see the last page turn but as the saying goes "all good things must end" and whether it ends how you expected or not doesn't really matter because the feelings Waiting gave me will linger and gives one a bit of hope for "love everlasting". I've never read Brynn Stein before but I can unequivocally say that Waiting is not the only one I will read, definitely an author that I'll be keeping my eye on.
