    “For anyone who has ever waited for the call that didn’t come . . .”I’ve never shied away from the fact that I’m a reader with a strong opinion, so why start now? It’s not that I enjoy writing one star reviews or labeling something as “not for me”, but the reality is, there are books that walk into my life and don’t work for one reason or another.It was the promise of a love story and the loaded title, wrapped in a pretty packag...

    *3.5 Stars*GHOSTED: (Verb) When someone you love disappears without explanation…Then your friends and family act like you're crazy. (Urban dictionary knows how it feels.)Sarah Mackey has been Ghosted—and she is not okay. After almost a full week of pure bliss, Sarah and Eddie have fallen hopelessly in love with one another despite having only just met. Yes, it’s a shameless bout of insta-love, and I, for once, didn’t hate it. When life f...

    2.5 rounded up .This is one that I thought I would love - what’s not to love about a love story? But I just didn’t connect. There were several things that rang true in this novel- marriages don’t always work, accidents happen and handling grief is difficult and different for each of us. There definitely were some tough things that happened to the characters and I felt for them over their losses, over the burdens they carried. But the premis...

    Ghosted was a frustrating read--The majority of my frustrations stem from the book’s structure. While there are some wonderful pockets, as a whole this book did not work for me. Sarah and Eddie met by chance. They spend seven glorious, passion-filled days together and make plans for the future. But then Eddie “ghosts” Sarah, who cannot comprehend why the love of her life would vanish without a trace. Sarah verges on obsession trying to fin...

    I’ll preface this by saying that many readers will be enthralled by Ghosted. It may be my cold, dark heart but I am not among them. After spending six days together, Eddie and Sarah fall hopelessly in love. Both are pushing forty and I can’t help but think this is quite a stretch. Poof! Eddie disappears; Sarah is devastated and spends an inordinate amount of time trying to find him. This was tedious and rather pathetic. Eddie’s side of the ...

    4.5 Stars!GHOSTED by ROSIE WALSH was such a beautifully written love story that had a hint of mystery to it and a few surprising twists, that I absolutely adored! This book was extremely gripping, intense, and a heartwarming story that had me totally engaged and interested right from the very first chapter to the very last page. I was totally intrigued and emotionally invested in this whole story and I really appreciated that I went into this one...

    This is one of my favorite fiction reads of 2018. I think it helped just jumping right into the book without rereading the synopsis that I had long ago forgotten. Really all you need to know is Sarah and Eddie spend an incredible week together even though they have just met, make plans to see one another after Eddie comes back from vacation, and then Eddie ceases all communication with Sarah and she is left wondering what happened. I just really ...

    Norma and I read Ghosted with seven of our Traveling Sisters and we had some very strong views on this one that not only split us into two different Coulees but two Coulees nowhere near each other. Ghosted starts off a bit slow and weighted down a bit as we are introduced to a story that seems like boy meets girl and they fall in love, but there is much more going on in this story than meets the eye though. For some of us we started to see a diff...

    This novel turned out to be something completely unexpected, I liked it!Sarah and Eddie met and spend seven wonderful days together with the promise of seeing each other again, however, after saying goodbye Sarah does not hear from Eddie again. She calls him, texts him, sends him messages on facebook with no response on his part. What happened to Eddie? Well, there’s a backstory which you will find out about if you read the book. ghost·ing | ...

    4.5 HOLY COW stars!Wow! I absolutely love it when a book can catch me totally off guard. Ghosted is a quick, emotional and thrilling rollercoaster ride, with twists that I never saw coming. Seven days. Just seven days. That’s all it took. When Sarah Mackey meets Eddie David, she suddenly finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance. It is the stuff of fairytales and love story movies…. Just one week together, and they are deeply connected. ...

    Ghosted is a spectacular debut novel; it is beautifully written and perfectly paced, and I could not put it down until I was finished reading it. Walsh kept me guessing the entire time, and I thought the book was truly perfect from beginning to end. The plot and storytelling are unique, the characters are highly likeable, and the ending is both satisfying and believable. My one small complaint is that the book cover is not great; it bears no rela...

    🌺Translation widget on The blog, at The end of The post!!! 🌺 Mi-a stârnit interesul titlul, curioasă fiind să descopăr povestea. Este o carte a emoțiilor, a bucuriei, tristeții și a fericirii. O poveste de viață ce are loc în Anglia, unde autoarea reușește efectiv să ne poarte. Bazată pe suspans și mister, “Bărbatul care n-a mai sunat” este asemănătoare cu un labirint. Cititorul este tot timpul în ceață, indiferent ...

    ***3 STARS***Unfiltered review here - https://wp.me/p7ZSCH-4irThe first half of Ghosted was very self-loathing and boring, IMO. I contemplated giving up several times but I wanted to continue since I paid for the damn thing. The middle part was a bit better and my hopes of enjoying it were on the up and up. The last 80% or so was interesting but not exciting.Honestly, if you’ve read the synopsis then you already know the first 65% of the book.*...

    I've been trying to digest my thoughts and I truly just didn't care for the story. And I really hate that I didn't because I wanted SO BADLY to love it. Sarah and Eddie meet one day and hit it off instantly. After spending a week together Eddie leaves on vacation with promises to come back so they can figure out what’s going on between the two of them. The L word is even hinted so the sparks are definitely flying. Days go by and Sarah doesn’t...

    De esos libros que te mantienen despierta hasta las 2.15 de la madrugada porque no lo podés soltar hasta llegar al final.Me gustó muchísimo, al principio no se entiende mucho y la forma en que la autora eligió contar esta historia lo hace todavía mas confuso, pero la verdad es que a pesar de esto engancha y mucho y en la medida que lo vas leyendo vas armando 1000 hipótesis que en mi caso no le pegué a ninguna.Empecé este libro porque me a...

    This book had some serious 'holy-crap' shockers! I was riveted from start to finish, gobbled up every word, and felt like I got smacked in the face several times with total blindsiding plot twists! Sarah's been ghosted. If you don't know what that means - well... she literally fell in love with Eddie after ONE WEEK. They meet, by chance, spend an entire week with no-one but each other, the connection is insane, they are meant for each other, they...

    I’m pretty excited about The Man Who Didn't Call… oh ok I’m VERY excited about this novel! I went into this novel thinking it would be a mystery but it turned out to be quite an emotional read and so beautifully written! The majority of it is a romantic love story type of book of two people who can't be together, with just a bit of mystery mixed into it in the beginning to get you really hooked. Maybe some might find the resolving of his di...

    The idea of ghosting someone both appalls and fascinates me, in an era where everyone is constantly posting their whereabouts on various forms of social media why is this such a common phenomenon? Of course people disappeared out of each other lives before technology took over, but it was definitely easier to do so back then and you didn’t have nearly the tools available to track them down that you do now. All of that to say, further exploring ...

    Nu vreau să vă dau multe detalii. Asta ar însemna să distrug tot farmecul acestui roman. Știți cum e conceput? Ca un labirint. Eu așa l-am perceput. Sunt zeci de căi către ieșire și pornești pe fiecare plin de speranță și convins că acela este drumul. Exact când crezi că ești aproape, dai peste o fundătură. Un lucru la care nu te-ai fi gândit. Te întorci și spui „ei, bine, la asta nu m-am așteptat”. Simți fiorii daț...

    I know, I know. I'm so generous with my ratings. And maybe this is more of a 4, 4.5* read; But the heart wants what the heart wants. And my heart wanted this book. I don't know many women who *haven't* been ghosted by a boy, a man, a man-boy at one point or another in their life (even if the term ghosted is a descriptor that has only sprung up recently enough that I didn't know what it was before I looked it up on the interwebs) - it happened to ...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.comI didn't expect this novel to be so emotional - I'd assumed it would be more of a light and fluffy read, perhaps partly due to the cover, but once I started reading I realised that this is a truly gripping, absorbing and really well crafted.The characters are believable and convincing, with main protagonist Sarah coming across as a likable and someone who doesn't fit into a typical 'category' of person. She isn'...

    4.5 romantic stars A great big thank you to publisher and Rosie Walsh for the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Ghosted, which comes out in July 2018. I'm still drying my eyes from all of the tears and sobbing!! When I first saw the description, I thought the book would be a psychological thriller but it's not...it's full on psychological romance - if such a genre exists!! The story introduces Sarah Mackey and Eddie David. They meet acciden...

    Un pic cam exagerată povestea de pe la jumătatea cărții încolo, dar adevărul e că nu m-a deranjat atât de tare pe cât aș fi crezut. A ajutat foarte mult și stilul lui Rosie Walsh, care nu a fost excesiv de înflorat sau de dulceag. A știu cum să dozeze umorul (chiar m-am trezit uneori că chicoteam în timp ce citeam), durerea și iubirea. Walsh a mizat foarte mult pe puterea destinului când și-a închipuit povestea, iar în mine a...
