Chasing Ghosts

Chasing Ghosts is the 6th book in the Dudley Sisters saga by Madalyn Morgan. The books are all part of a continuing story of the same family with overarching plot threads, but they don't suffer for being read as standalones.

Released 23rd June 2018, it's 159 pages and available in ebook and paperback formats.

I personally found the plotting somewhat uneven. My interest waned and I had a tough time maintaining my connection with the main characters. I do like the period, post WW2, and the author is adept at descriptive prose, but it was a bit heavy on the romance (for my tastes). For fans who prefer a bit of mystery with their romance fiction, this series will be a good fit.

The language is relatively clean (a few scattered 'bloody, damn, etc', but nothing egregious) and the sexual elements are implied rather than explicit. I found the misunderstanding and 'noble' drama caused by characters just not communicating or being honest with themselves or one another quite wearing after a while.

It's well written, and I would recommend it for romantic-mystery-fiction lovers. Possibly worth noting for Kindle Unlimited subscribers; this book (and the rest of the series) is available for download as part of the KU subscription.

Three and a half stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
