19 Book Lovin Bitches Ebook Tours review: stolen dreams by Stacey Kennedy

The lawn
Is pressed by unseen feet, and ghosts return
Gently at twilight, gently go at dawn,
The sad intangible who grieve and yearn.... - T.S. ELIOT, To Walter de la Mare


Stolen Dreams
Tess Jennings, assistant to Event Manager Dylan Cobb, loves her job at Randall Marketing. the pay is good and her boss is always somewhere around the world doing promotional work. she is pretty much left on her own - except for the spirits. Tess sees them daily. they come to her asking for help so they could cross over. on her way to work one day, Tess encounters the ghost of Kipp McGowan, a cop with the Memphis Police Department. she attempts to ignore him and fails.
Kipp was working on a cold case file and following up a lead when he died. he asks Tess to seek out his partner Detective Zach Foster and fill him in so Zach could move along with the case. with Tess' assistance, Kipp hopes not only to solve the disappearance of Hannah Reid but also to learn who was responsible for his death.
there is a lot about this book that bring to my mind the movie Ghost and the TV series Ghost Whisperer. the writer might have been inspired by them but Stolen Dreams is much more fun!
the dialogs between Tess and Kipp are witty and amusing. the plot is interesting and the pacing is fast. Tess and Kipp's unlikely partnership and "romance" also caters to a more mature audience who love supernatural themes with a bit of steam on the side.
i really had fun reading this book though i still find the idea of falling for a ghost creepy and unnerving . i just had to focus on the fact that one of the reasons why i read is to escape into uncharted territories and lose myself in what could be plausible.  somehow, author Stacey Kennedy managed to remind me of this and got away with it.

*Stolen Dreams (The Lingering Spirit Book 1) is available at Amazon (Kindle, paperback), Barnes and Noble, All Romance™, 1 Place For Romance and Smashwords. for more information about Stacey Kennedy and her work, please visit http://www.staceykennedy.com/
