The Solitaire Ghost: Blackstone Gold, Book One

By

In Australia, Dorian Wild shockingly witnesses a ghost traipsing about her apartment and office. Intent on discovering what this sighting means, Dorian delves into the past to discover her ghost is a 19th-century Irish reporter named Jimmy Keenigham. Mystery and danger deepen when her geologist boyfriend suspiciously dies in a car crash after sending her enigmatic messages about gold mines and shifty business takeovers.

With Australian lingo and locations, this book was a bit hard to follow at first, but the fast-pace and interesting plot helped to carry the story along. Jimmy somehow travels to the present, adding romance and intrigue to this already curious storyline. The ties between the Solitaire gold mine, Chris, and Jimmy were interesting, although the total acceptance all characters had of a ghost sighting was a bit hard to swallow. All in all, recommended for its unusual plot and look at historic gold mines.
