“Here she was, the girl who didn’t believe in ghosts, standing in the middle of a set of stone steps waiting at a mirror for a ghost to appear.”
Mattie Holmes visits Ashcombe Manor in Dunmore England after her mother marries Alex Ashcombe. The last thing she expects is a man in the mirror. Bastian is not a ghost. He didn’t die. He was cursed behind the mirror on his wedding day in 1869. As they start to unravel the mystery they realise they are running out of time. If they don’t break the curse before February 29th Bastian will simply disappear.
Breaking a centuries old curse is hard enough, but Mattie is starting to fall for Bastian. Not only is his very existence in jeopardy but to love a man in the mirror may only lead to a shattered heart.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Whoa this book surprised me. I enjoyed every word….
Ashcombe man thy
vanity keep thee
Till Love shines
Beauty and in purity
Till shattered heart
within pierce free
And with single breath,
mirror pass’ed be
Mattie is drawn to the beautiful man behind the mirror. A ghost…but wait she doesn’t believe in ghost does she? She thinks she is losing her mind until she realizes that he isn’t a ghost at all.
Trapped in a mirror for over 150 years by an ancient family cures, Sebastian Ashcombe’s only hope is Matilda. The beautiful intelligent young lady that somehow can see him. She makes it her personal quest to free him. Scouring through history books and searching for hidden clues together that work to figure out the riddle before it’s too late.
Soon she realizes that strangely she has fallen for the man in the mirror (I know I know I’m singing Michael Jackson’s song right now too lol) and that there is more at stake than just the fate of one Ashcombe man.
Beautifully written with twists and turns throughout. You will not be disappointed with this read!
