you a gift, refuse it at your own risk.
As a child, Samantha Hamilton once helped ghosts move beyond
Entwine, where the world of the dead overlaps that of the living. This gift
felt more like a curse, but it forged a bond between her and Kate and Beth, two

your typical romance...

Ok, I gotta
admit it. I bought this book because I was intrigued by the unusual plot line,
but fully expecting to maybe like it, but not love it. I am not a paranormal or
romance reader as a rule. I was home with a crushed wrist and getting bored. So
I thought, why not?
I curled up in my chair, pooch in lap, tea by my side and next thing I know its
hours later and I am almost done with it! I really enjoyed it. The author knows
her craft. Her characters are real and you care about them and their plights.
She took several, very different and very difficult plots, wove them together
and made it all come out right in the end. Not all clean and perfect, but very
Another note, there was just enough “adult scene” in this. So many authors,
especially new ones, go over the top with sex in their books, which distracts
and takes away, for me, from the books.
By the time I finished the book, I was invested in the characters. I am looking
forward to her next book and fully expect to love it as much as this one.
story, fully realized characters.

a thoroughly enjoyable read that managed to pull me away from several other
books I’d been working through. It’s a story that fits a number of sub-genre’s
without struggling to excel at any of them. There’s enough action and mystery
and romance to go around.
I think what made Entwine one of my favorite books so far this year is the way
it checked a number of plot conventions off the list without making them feel
like dull re-treads. Main character has a significant fear of loss/survivor
guilt: check. Main character struggles reconciling feelings with romantic
relationships involving the man she ‘should’ be with: check. Main character had
a massive falling out with childhood friends and needs to re-kindle those old
bonds: check. The author has used what could be considered genre tropes as a
very seamless, very well-executed foundation for her story...and that’s before
the cool stuff with the ghosts even comes up!
Once Entwine kicks into gear and Samantha (MC) gets cracking, Shearer
introduces a trio of interesting paranormal characters who could honestly carry
their own respective novels. Two in particular (Beatrice and Caleb), seem to
have some very interesting history/back story that could be explored in later
installments. The world of the Entwine as a setting is played very
straightforward, while the function of the Runners/Warden(s) is played very
close to the chest. If I wanted for anything when the proverbial credits rolled
it was a better understanding of aforementioned’s true function.
If you need a summer read with action, some sizzling romance, a murder mystery,
and a story of childhood friends trying to set old wounds aside, Tracey Shearer
has you covered with Entwine. 10/10 I’ll be reading her next endeavor.

incredible novel. If you believe in ghosts and the paranormal or if you’re
fascinated by the concept of ghosts or the paranormal, then you’ll enjoy this
Sam is called home to Scotland by her friend, Kate who needs help with her bed
and breakfast. She’s been experiencing poltergeist activity and she’s hoping
Sam can help her get rid of it. See, Sam (as well as Kate and their friend
Beth) has special abilities. Sam can see, talk to, and help ghosts.
However, helping with the poltergeist isn’t the only obstacles Sam, Kate, and
Beth need to face. Sam is also “recruited” by Lord Robert Grenning to help him
clear his name and his family name after he was executed in 1790. By the way, a
steamy relationship develops between Sam (a human) and Robert (a ghost). How?
Read and find out. Also, the girls need to find who the killer is in some
recent murders. The victims? Young women who look exactly like Kate.
This story was well-written. The description throughout is vivid and I love how
you get emotionally attached to the characters. I highly recommend it.
So, So WORTH It!

is different from other paranormal romances. The ghosts are unique. The
relationship between the heroine and her friends is complex, at times fraught,
funny, and loving. There is a history and a back story to the world and the
characters living in it that makes you scream to want to know more. This book
is really difficult to put down! The ending isn’t something anyone could
predict, but it is satisfying. To say I’m excited to read the further
adventures of Sam, Beth, Kate and their friends and family is a huge
understatement. Read Entwine!

I have to
echo many of the other reviews - what a page turner! A coworker recommended
this book to me a while ago, and it finally made it to the top of my book
stack. What a great first novel by this author! A good story that kept me
engaged the whole way through. I read primarily at night and had a tough time
putting this down and so that I could get some sleep - eager to know what was
going to happen next. I look forward to reading more from this author!
from the first!

great start to this series. Has a little bit of everything, murder, mystery,
broken friendships, steamy romance... We get enough back story on our main
heroine and those around her that it draws you in and leaves you wanting more
but still wraps up this installment nicely. I look forward to reading the rest
of the series and hopefully following this author for years to come.
