A fantastical romance involving a girl, the music that fuels her, and her Ouija board.
Rosalyn possesses a sunny personality that is laced with quirks. Although she seeks acceptance in a world where she lives out of time, what she gets is ridiculed for her eclectic wardrobe and unconventional music collection.
One fateful night, Rosalyn bewitches Niles, a stylish man whose offbeat character perfectly complements her own. Unfortunately, he possesses a critical flaw that means relationship suicide for him and pretty much anyone.
While under the influence of insomnia-impaired judgment, Rosalyn summons Rock ‘n Roll deity Peter Lane back from the dead. Not only does he spin her hormones into a frenzy, Peter is also the precarious puzzle piece that brings sense into her world. When Niles learns that he can overcome his life-long challenge by helping Peter avenge his death, how far will he go to secure Rosalyn’s heart?
What to say about this story... It is different than anything I have ever read. A little bit paranormal, a little bit hippy, a little bit groovy, a little bit suspenseful, a little bit romantic.... I think you are starting to get my drift.
The idea of reincarnation and ghosts mixed in with present time is pretty neat. Diane Rinella did a wonderful job giving you the info on the past as you needed to know it and tie it in to the present. The paranormal aspects that are thrown in aren't overpowering paranormal. They add to the intrigue of the book. It's like making a cake. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and then you have your wondrous creation! That's what this story is.
I loved the idea of the 60's hipster theme. It's unique. The characters are lovable. The connection that Ros and Peter have is portrayed perfectly all throughout the story. The give and take, their inner struggles with themselves and the truth about themselves kept me waiting to see how the story would play out.
The ending was bliss. I don't think there could have been a better way to end the book. The villain needed to be taken care of. A couple needed to finalize their relationship. The suspense in getting to the end had me on the edge of my seat.
Overall, I totally enjoyed this book. I love reading something unique. The same old love story gets boring after a while. There was no boredom with this one!
Enjoying San Francisco as a backdrop, the ghosts in Diane’s 150-year old Victorian home augment the chorus in her head. With insomnia as their catalyst, these voices have become multifarious characters that haunt her well into the sun’s crowning hours, refusing to let go until they have manipulated her into succumbing to their whims. Her experiences as an actress, business owner, artisan cake designer, software project manager, Internet radio disc jockey, vintage rock n’ roll journalist/fangirl, and lover of dark and quirky personalities influence her idiosyncratic writing.
