Review: Her Dear and Loving Husband by Meredith Allard
***I received this ebook in exchange for an honest review and participation in the virtual blog tour.
Amazon Product Description:
James Wentworth has a secret. He lives quietly in Salem, Massachusetts, making few ties anywhere. One night his private world is turned upside down when he meets Sarah Alexander, a dead ringer for his wife, Elizabeth. Though it is years since Elizabeth's death, James cannot move on. Sarah also has a secret. She is haunted by nightmares about the Salem Witch Trials, and every night she is awakened by visions of hangings, being arrested, and dying in jail. Despite the obstacles of their secrets, James and Sarah fall in love. As James comes to terms with his feelings for Sarah, he must dodge accusations from a reporter desperate to prove that James is not who, or what, he seems to be. Soon James and Sarah piece their stories together and discover a mystery that may bind them in ways they never imagined. Will James make the ultimate sacrifice to protect Sarah and prevent a new hunt from bringing hysteria to Salem again?
So...Sarah moves to Salem after her divorce and meets James, who ends up being so much more than just the man from her dreams.
I really enjoyed this story. I was instantly drawn to Sarah, I automatically related to her desire to start her life over. The storyline was original and refreshing, as well as wonderfully paced and beautifully written. We get a little bit of everything paranormal ~ past lives, psychics, witches, vampires. Add to that mystery and romance. Couple all that with fantastic characters, and you have a story that's hard to put down.
