Book Review: Maybe This Time

We’ve got a haunted house, traumatized children, a long-over marriage that maybe deserves a second chance, a TV reporter with too-perfect teeth and a sinister agenda, and most of all: We have Jennifer Crusie’s usual delightful style, making it all so much fun.

I really enjoyed this book. The paranormal aspect integrated well into the plot, and wasn’t just some kind of sugar coating. The ghosts even managed to be spooky at times, though they made me laugh at other times. That’s what happens when you have an author with a unique wit telling tales of ghosts and hauntings.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a lightly amusing paranormal story, with a bit of romance and a lot of fun.

  1. I have read Jennifer Crusie in the past, some chick-lit funny titles and enjoyed them. Then I read a story she co-wrote with a man, forget his name offhand, but the sparkle of her usual books was missing. This one, though, looks intriguing with a bit of paranormal thrown in. Hmmm, guess I will be looking to pick this one up. Thanks for the tip! Rae

  2. I know what you mean! In fact, I am right in the middle of another Crusie book she co-wrote with Bob Mayer and that is exactly what I’m thinking — it doesn’t have that sparkle. The one I’m reading now is Wild Ride. She co-wrote another book with Mayer, Agnes and the Hitman, which I did basically like, but I definitely prefer her solo works.
