Hey Book Worms!
So, today I have decided to review another amazing book by one of my favorite authors. This is the first book in the Haunted Hearts series and to me it sets up the series for the amazing success that it has become! The Architect of Song by A.G. Howard, is a tale full of gypsies, secrets, mystery, ghosts, and romance!
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“For most of her life, nineteen-year-old Juliet Emerline has subsisted – isolated by deafness – making hats in the solitude of her home. Now, she’s at risk to lose her sanctuary to Lord Nicolas Thornton, a twenty-seven-year-old mysterious and eccentric architect with designs on her humble estate. When she secretly witnesses him raging beside a grave, Juliet investigates, finding the name “Hawk” on the headstone and an unusual flower at the base. The moment Juliet touches the petals, a young English nobleman appears in ghostly form, singing a song only her deaf ears can hear. The ghost remembers nothing of his identity or death, other than the one name that haunts his afterlife: Thornton.
To avenge her ghostly companion and save her estate, Juliet pushes aside her fear of society and travels to Lord Thornton’s secluded holiday resort, posing as a hat maker in one of his boutiques. There, she finds herself questioning who to trust: the architect of flesh and bones who can relate to her through romantic gestures, heartfelt notes, and sensual touches … or the specter who serenades her with beautiful songs and ardent words, touching her mind and soul like no other man ever can. As sinister truths behind Lord Thornton’s interest in her estate and his tie to Hawk come to light, Juliet is lured into a web of secrets. But it’s too late for escape, and the tragic love taking seed in her heart will alter her silent world forever.”
This book is told from Juliet and Nicolas’s point of view, which gives the reader a deeper understanding of the characters. I think that the description says a lot for this amazing book and I don’t want to give anything away. I do suggest that you read this book before the other two books in the series, because each book builds upon the other one and gives the reader a better background. A.G. creates a unique universe for the readers to get lost in, and as I have all of her books, I absolutely loved this one. She has a way of taking an idea and creating this wonderfully dark world, that will leave readers speechless and hooked until the very end! If you love ghosts, romance and mysteries than this book and series is for you!
Go on a hauntingly romantic adventure my ghost hunters!
