    I always feel a bit apprehensive before reading a ghost story, and not for the reason you might think Rather than being worried that I ll find myself too scared to sleep, I often find myself grumbling at how unaffected I am by the ghostly activities Despite me being very imaginative it always takes brilliant storytelling and the author being able to really set the scene in a realistic way that makes the fear factor so much higher for me I had no doubt before reading So Fell the Sparrow that Katie Jennings with her fabulous storytelling and brilliant characters, would deliver a fantastic and chill inducing ghost story that would have me quivering in the night, and sleeping with my bedside lamp on.The heroine of our story is Dr Grace Sullivan, a character who from the first page is incredibly real I love flawed and bruised characters as it really helps me as a reader connect with the character s feelings Grace s strict scientific philosophy, completely opposite to Ian s passionate belief in the paranormal, gave a real contrast in how people view the world, and gives a reminder to readers that we shouldn t be so quick to judge others beliefs The tension between Grace and Ian was brilliantly done with their stubborn nature having me both laughing and groaning as I longed to bash their heads together, bless them Such an amazing couple, with great chemistry I loved them Jackie s character is one that really interests me I adored getting glimpses into her background and the problems that having a gift can cause when others don t understand it I loved the relationship she had with Alex, and really liked having another girl to keep Grace company The boys with their ghost busting gear, whilst adorable and nerdy as they were, were a bit too boys with their toys for Grace s liking, so it was great to see how her relationship with Jackie kept her both grounded yet skittish, as Jackie s gift became real to her It was a brilliant storyline that saw Grace really develop as a character as she began to struggle between being alone, or having friends that she didn t connect with spiritually.The way that Katie Jennings wrote the ghost scenes was spectacular There were times when reading this book that I couldn t sleep at night afterwards, which gave me a real thrill that I haven t experienced since seeing The Woman in Black on stage I did not sleep for a week after seeing that There was one scene in particular that really struck with me, and that was the prologue, where we see young Sally, a dead girl who cries through the window at her parents when they leave the house and her memory behind This was the perfect introduction to the story, and had me turning the page to Chapter One without a second thought All other aspects of the ghost story line were perfect The story had obviously been very well researched, giving enough information to have us clued up on the technical aspects of ghost hunting without making it an information dump Having Grace s less than impressed reaction at the hunting display they made in her basement The mystery behind which spirits in the house are the most restless and feeding off the fear that they cause was haunting and had me in suspense the whole book.At risk of giving anything away, I will end with just saying that I cannot recommend this book enough It is definitely a favourite of mine, and is such a wonderful, intriguing and of course romantic read Katie Jennings has done it again 5 stars

    I received this book because I won the First REads Give away I was really hesitant to read this book because the past few first reads I ve received haven t just been all that great It was hard for me to first get into the book but let me tell you when I got passed chapter one I couldn t put the book down I stayed up until 6am this morning so I could finish it I absolutely love all of the characters especially Ian and Alex they are swoon worthy I love how much of a cynic Grace is and i love that Jackie is such a free spirit I do have to say also that some parts of the book had my heart pumping and it was because I was a little scared I was scared because I strongly believe in ghosts and the things that were happening were a little freaky but I LOVED the book Katie Jennings is AWESOME Will definitely be recommending this book

    As Jackie headed northeast toward the rising sun, a doctor five hundred miles away was receiving a late night phone call that would change her life forever And in Seattle, a ghost hunter awoke from a strange dream, the name of a woman he d never met on his lips Grace He fell back asleep and forgot the dream, but fate had done its job Soon he and his partner would hit the road on the hunt for the paranormal Four strangers were unknowingly en route to each other, bound for a tiny, seaboard town in Massachusetts To a house that had claimed the life of a sparrow.This was an unusual beginning, as there are four central characters, but the female leads, Jackie and Grace, take center stage immediately rich details of their backgrounds setting the mood for empathy Their male counterparts, our dynamic ghost hunters, Ian and Alex, are introduced and explored, but our knowledge of them is limited to present day interactions with the women They re so swoon worthy, you won t feel cheated, trust me Honestly, I came to expect the unexpected with So Fell the Sparrow and was genuinely happy for having put my faith in author, Katie Jennings Be warned This is not a campfire tale to elicit quick thrills This book s effects linger yikes I m scaring myself all over again Jackie is a nomadic medium whose ability of sight earned her father s castigation and reproach for communicating with demons Having the wherewithal to run away from a poisonous environment, Jackie embraces her gift, drifting from town to town, availing herself to the afterlife A spirit encounter guides her to her next destination Grace, the rigid doctor who recently lost her parents in a car crash only to discover her fianc in bed with her BFF following her parents services , has just arrived at the Sparrow House, a property inherited through her father s will but kept a secret After a week of adjusting to the small town, fervent to keep interaction with the locals to a minimum, Grace experiences her first disturbance the cries of a child Mourning the loss of her parents, but rationalizing the grief with an excess of bitterness, Grace has now inherited unwanted attention I need to know if there s something about you that brought these spirits out Nellie says she experienced nothing in the house until you arrived Ergo, you are in some way, shape, or form, the crucial piece of the puzzle The cloud that hangs over you may be what s attracting these spirits They re drawn to you because you re in a weakened emotional state While honest, probably not the best pick up line, Ian Let me be direct Grace was not an easy woman to love She was quite nasty in fact When she wasn t lambasting Ian and Alex for their chosen profession whose services were acquired by a good intentioned neighbor , Grace was repeatedly insulting and kicking people out of the Sparrow House don t you dare call it her home At some point during Grace s introspection she did consider she might be a wee abrupt , I was feeling a bit underwhelmed by the story and turned off my Kindle When a particularly grueling stomach pain woke me up in the middle of the night, and I grew restless, I resumed reading Big mistake Ms Jennings hit her stride when addressing the heart of the story a ghost haunting Praying the sound of soft crying so eerily described in the book was just in my head, since the cats were curled up on my bed completely exonerating them, I was thankful to live in a one story home For all intents and purposes, however, I immersed and traversed the creepy hall with Grace, assaulted by all the images it provoked Well done When further proof of hostility invades the Sparrow House, and convinces Grace she needs Ian, Alex and Jackie s expertise, a full investigation is set up for Halloween, when the veil between the living and dead is transparent The suspense was deftly maintained by Ms Jennings as we d gleaned apparitions and witnessed a death scene in the harbor adjacent to the home I was plagued by a myriad of hypotheticals dying to go through the search and discovery Kill me with the last line at the conclusion of Chapter 8 CHILLS Chapter 9 holds its own keeping me riveted and mesmerized in absolute fear WOW And Ms Jennings doesn t let up While the mysteries start to unfurl and piece together, the menace escalates, threatens, and manifests during a s ance amongst other scare the shit out of you moments Wow is a paltry interjection This is one scary mofo of a book Subtly interwoven are unique love stories to dilute the terror, lol While Grace and Ian are tempestuous personalities who survive off of sarcasm and red wine, their repeated clashes dare the other to take closer notice They coalesce into a fiery harmony Jackie s childhood torment tethers her anger, but she resurrects like the Phoenix herself when Alex accepts her unconditionally Fates, and a family tree, align this group to uncover evil and restore peace within the home and themselves

    I think about the cover now that I have reached the end of the story I think about how that image tells the story so perfectly well in places this story is dark and filled with mystery there is some amount of grief it is a ghost story and the plot reflects the atmosphere of that same image on the can tell when you are reading this that the writer dearly loves the ghost hunting scene I didn t find it hard to latch onto some of the devices the ghost hunters were using, or the terminology, even though I had to read on a bit to find out what a Mel meter is it fit very well with me because there were so many other elements to this story it is sad, mystery laced, a bit of some of the good horror moments that may be a sort of salute to the supernatural horror genre, and there s also a bit of a love story unraveling I think definetly something for everyone.I read this very quickly and found that kind of broad appeal and riveting plot line I was hoping then there s that dilemma I have read a few stories by this writer and had told myself that When Empires fall was as good as it could get now there s this one, and I have a bit of trouble deciding which is my favourite

    You know how when you re reading a book sometimes each chapter or section is from a different person s point of view It s still written in 3rd person, but you can tell that you re seeing the story through the eyes of a certain character Well she does this, but it s all jumbled up One sentence will be from one character POV and the next another It s distracting.That said, I really liked the story Hated the main character at first You re kind of supposed to but, for me, so much so that I almost quit reading I was sure she wouldn t be able to redeem herself still not sure she did But I liked the other characters.So I did find flaws things I didn t care for, I enjoyed it overall and would read from her just to see if she can get hat POV thing down because I like her stories.

    I normally don t read ghostly books because they just aren t my thing Mainly, because they keep me up all night and the hubby gripes because every light is on in the house as soon as the sun goes down BUT, although this book did have some spine tingling, hair standing on end moments, Mrs Jennings added enough to the story that helped ease the spook I was so caught up in the story line that the scary stuff really didn t bother me, it just intrigued me to keep reading on I give this book 5 5 stars Great job yet again, Katie

    This is a marvelously scary tale and love story at the same time It s well written and flows effortlessly I love the characters and the setting It s a great read, really exciting I loved the plot and twists in the storyline I highly recommend this to all who love ghost stories and romance

    3.5 in actuality.The premise of this was great high stakes, intriguing paranormal activity, and a creepy house I really liked the atmosphere and there were some genuinely creepy moments that made my skin crawl I particularly liked the little details Jennings used, such as the furniture, which was something ridiculously cool that I never would have thought of Readers looking for some good ghost manifestations will find plenty to like in this novel As someone who watched a lot of Ghost Hunters in the past and really liked it, I was happy to see the use of the technology play out in this.I actually would have rounded up to a 4 were it not for a few things The first was my personal opinion I hate when the main cast all gets paired up None of the romances struck me as believable, for they hadn t known each other nearly long enough to be in love , and I thought the whole story would have been much stronger without the addition I don t think all stories need to have romance, and this one certainly didn t it didn t add anything at all to the plot, and the fright would have been stronger without it The second thing was sort of a compilation of small issues regarding language use g psy is a slur against the Roma people, and by this point, I believe we should all move past using it And describing what seemed to be the one PoC in the book as exotic is an example of language that fetishizes PoC And lastly, use of the m word in reference to those with Dwarfism is also in poor taste I wish these hadn t occurred in the narrative, and they influenced my rating lower.
