Jobless and forced home to Wisconsin, journalist Sabrina Monroe can tolerate reunions with frenemies and kisses from old boyfriends, but not the literal ghosts that greet her in this heartwarming tale of the power of love and connection from acclaimed author Amy E. Reichert.
For Sabrina Monroe, moving back home to the Wisconsin Dells–the self-described Waterpark Capital of the World–means returning to the Monroe family curse: the women in her family can see spirits who come to them for help with unfinished business. But Sabrina’s always redirected the needy spirits to her mom, who’s much better suited for the job. The one exception has always been Molly, a bubbly rom-com loving ghost, who stuck by Sabrina’s side all through her lonely childhood.
Her personal life starts looking up when Ray, the new local restaurateur, invites Sabrina to his supper club, where he flirts with her over his famous Brandy Old-Fashioneds. He’s charming and handsome, but Sabrina tells herself she doesn’t have time for romance–she needs to focus on finding a job. Except the longer she’s in the Dells, the harder it is to resist her feelings for Ray. Who can turn down a cute guy with a fondness for rescue dogs and an obsession with perfecting his fried cheese curds recipe?
When the Dells starts to feel like home for the first time and with Ray in her corner, Sabrina begins to realize that she can make a difference and help others wherever she is.
I fell in love with this author’s writing a few years ago when I read The Coincidence of Coconut Cake. So when I heard about The Kindred Spirits Supper Club, I just knew I had to get my hands on this book. And let me tell you, this book did not disappoint. It was fun, unique, and undeniably sweet.
The Kindred Spirits Supper Club follows the story of Sabrina and Ray. Sabrina’s life is anything but ordinary. You see, the woman in her family can see and talk to spirits. They’re tasked with helping those who have unfinished business. Sabrina has always seen her ability as a hindrance and wants nothing more than to be normal. The last thing Sabrina planned on was Ray. Sabrina knows she should focus on getting her life together, but staying away from Ray just isn’t an option….
Overall, I thought this book was a really cute read. This story was well written and paced just right. I thought the plot of the story was really unique and I really enjoyed all of the supernatural elements. The characters were genuine and easy to connect with. I thought the author did a really great job handling Sabrina’s past and her anxiety. I absolutely adored Ray. He accepted Sabrina for who she was and made Sabrina see herself in a more comfortable light. Ray had a genuine heart and I couldn’t wait to see how his and Sabrina’s story would play out.
The Kindred Spirits Supper Club is a fabulous read, from beginning to end. If you’re like me, you’re going to devour this book in just a single sitting and you’re going to love every single moment of it. This book was an absolute joy to read and I can’t wait to see what this author will have in store for us readers next!
