Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a good story that could have been told much better. There is no doubt this was a great story to tell and had amazing potential. I think it let me down in areas of overly descriptive prose. It read as if the author was fresh out of a creative writing class and the flowery drawn-out paragraphs lost a bit of zing in places. In between the scaffolding of the story, there is a lot of minutiae to get through, I say minutiae as I didn't think it added much to the story except a couple of extra chapters. However, if you can get through the flowery prose and embrace the long drawn-out paragraphs, you'll find a story; it's not an exciting or riveting story but it will keep you occupied. It was placed at the upper end of what I like to spend on books and that's one of the reasons, I don't think it delivered. Recommended for long flights or autumn evenings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow I wasn't fully hooked on this book till about 100+ pages in but once things picked up, it got really interesting and I couldn't put it down. A nice break from the thriller/mystery I usually read because it still had a bit of that too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from woah Intense when the author drops major plot bombs as if she is describing the weather- watch out for those. I agree that it is a little slow in some parts, however the twists make up for it, IMHO. All around, it was a decent read that kept me hooked.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK -----------MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD----------------- This is a book that I didn't fully read but skimmed/read through in about 2 hours while in a bookstore. I heavily skipped the first quarter-half of the book and I'm glad I did because it mostly revolves around Sarah's obsession, as I've read in other reviews, do I didn't miss much. The second half was actually very interesting and the twist was shocking. Unfortunately the author relies on too many coincidences and contrived scenarios in order to add more mystery and suspense to the story that I felt just wasn't needed. I also thought Eddie's thoughts and experiences at the end were drawn out and repepitive, much like Sarah's was at the beginning. Overall this would have been a better book had it been shorter and more to the point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love story with a twist Thank you to Pan Macmillan and NetGalley for an e-ARC of Ghosted by Rosie Walsh in exchange for an honest review. What a story! Mysteries and thrillers are normally my favorite genres. However, this love story completely captivated me. This is not a formulaic romance. It is about Sarah who unexpectedly meets Eddie. They spend seven days together in the British countryside and promise each other to reconnect after Eddie's pre-arranged holiday. The rest you must read for yourself. It is an emotional roller-coaster: you will never know what comes next. The book is unpredictable and mysterious. The only problem is that the book is not long enough. I would have gladly spent more time with Sarah and Eddie. It is hoped that more is to come from Rosie Walsh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliantly plotted, beautifully written, and hauntingly romantic! Ghosted is the immersive, beguiling story of Sarah, a woman who spends seven wondrous days with the man of her dreams only to be devastated, mystified, and tormented with the question why when he seemingly disappears, and his promised call never arrives. The writing is fluid, seamless, and expressive. The characterization is well done with an unforgettable cast of characters that are multilayered, strong, supportive, and determined. And the character-driven plot using the perfect mixture of narrative, letters, and emails, interweaves the lives of multiple families and friends as they each learn to cope, survive, heal, forgive, love, and move on from tragedy, heartbreak, marital discord, mental health issues and infertility. Overall, Ghosted is a special blend of mystery, hope, humour, grit, romance, and heart-wrenching emotion that is much deeper and touching than it first appears. It’s enthralling, twisty, and engaging from the very first page, and I absolutely adored it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Magnificent! This book is magnificent. A complete joy to read, mixing mystery, suspense, a love story and a character drama all into one un-put-downable read. Synopsis: Sarah falls in love with Eddie over seven perfect days that they spend together, before he has to leave on a vacation. He promises to call her and that he will see her when he gets back, and Sarah knows that she has finally found The One. Until he doesn't call. Or return her messages. He has disappeared entirely, and Sarah is determined to understand why. I absolutely LOVE this book - it felt so fresh and unique in unraveling a love story that was as complex as all relationships tend to be. The perspective of being "ghosted" is so relevant in today's society, and to see that play out between two characters, with the desperation that it would ignite in the person left behind felt so genuine and raw. I felt completely devastated for Sarah as she worked to understand why. How Rosie Walsh also managed to weave in a complete piece of mystery without losing any of the intimacy of the characters themselves is amazing. The twists and turns of this story just kept coming, and surprised me completely each time. I really thought I would get a handle on where the story was going, only to be proven wrong again and again. Every single character in this story is so terrifically human and well developed, that I felt like I was watching things unfold with people I had known my whole life. I think I ran every gambit of emotion with this one - pure joy, devastating heartbreak, confusion, and sadness. It is rare to find a book that manages to capture me as a reader so completely. I cannot WAIT to share this book with my friends. This needs to be on the top of every bookworms summer reading list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved it! the book starts off with main character having a wonderful time with a new man. Then she goes back to her life and he vanishes off the face of the earth no phone calls no texts nothing. Her friends say that he has "ghosted" her but she just doesn't see how he could do that when their connection was so strong. So she takes matters into her own hands. Was this Eddie character really the man she thought he was or was he just playing with her heart? I really enjoyed this book because it was written through her eyes and you could really see her confusion at what was happening. I liked how she got defensive and didn't roll over and assume he was doing something wrong when her friends suggested that might be a reason. It gave a lot of credibility to the character and made her more relatable. Overall good book. The main characters were very relatable and I found that story very cool because it's not something you hear about all the time in novels. Nice upbeat story line and very easy to follow. This is a book that really makes you think about your life and how you react to relationships well done. I liked how the characters were written even the character Eddie. I did think he was a terrible person considering how he reacted to some things, there were many other ways to do what he did,however as the story progressed he started to grow on me. Great book I did not want to put it down. The best part about this book had to be the characters for sure! I loved them. This book is not to be missed.
