A stunning new voice. Linda Andrews transports her readers into a history populated by ghosts, psychic underpinnings and characters so real and wonderful they haunt us long after the novel has ended. Excellent read."

What a literary treat! From the slums of New York to the posh hotels of San Francisco, Ghost of a Chance provides a vivid tale of love and survival. Brighit and Everett's journey toward freedom and each other is well told. Granny's antics added a wonderful humorous twist on the typical interfering in-law character. I enjoyed every minute of the book and look forward to the next effort of this new author.

If I had to be haunted by a ghost, I would hope it would have the sense of humor like Gram. Loved the book and look forward to the next one.

Linda Andrews tells an enjoyable story of overcoming the odds, finding a family and true love in GHOST OF A CHANCE. GHOST OF A CHANCE takes us back to a time where poverty was abundant, social status was everything, and the West was freedom. Brighid and Everett show that even those of different social backgrounds can come together on equal ground and triumph over anything. The character of Gran provides much needed humor to the dark, depressing backdrop of America after the Civil War. Once I got through the first chapter and got the hang of Brighid's Irish brogue, I couldn't put GHOST OF A CHANCE down. Looking for a heart-warming story to read? Then give GHOST OF A CHANCE, well a chance.

A wonderfully romantic and hauntingly engaging love story, GHOST OF A CHANCE is one terrific read. Brimming with sexual tension and a plot filled with adventure, the book stands out proudly amongst its peers. Linda Andrews Tantalizes us with a tale of ghostly happenings and strongly budding desires that fans the flames of the human heart. I found the cast of characters to be strongly fleshed out and filled with wholly believable wants and needs, with plenty of action and villainous persons to contend with the pace never faltered. I recommend reading GHOST OF A CHANCE to those of you who appreciate a realistically written and well-rounded tale of paranormal romance. Published by Zumaya in 2003 the book is a specter to be reckoned with.

I thought Ghost of a Chance was an excellent book. With characters you will fall in love with and a great plot, you can't go wrong with this story. The exchanges between Brighid and her Gran are very funny and sweet. The only problem I had, if you could call it a problem, was that it ended too soon. It was all around a great read, one that I would recommend to everyone.

Strong and quick witted heroines are always a favorite of mine, but when placed in a historical setting they tend to rise to the top of my Favorite Heroine List.  After such a promising start to the story I was really looking forward to the rest of the book following suit. I am glad to say I wasn’t disappointed in the least. -Kayla, Bitten by Paranormal Romance


All in all, it’s an entertaining read from the first fog-filled moment to the last romantic one.  For those who like tales of 18th-century England and the Victorian Era, it’s a must.--Tony-Paul
