    1. Like the sultry afternoon, the jasmine gently floating on the breeze, the cool sweat dripping from a glass Just when sun bids farewell and the moon says hello, between day and night twilight a veil is lifted, the unrest sprits rise to roam the land of the living once Amanda Stevens writes poetic and downright spooky novel in The Restorer, set in the old south city in Charleston Amelia Gray is a cemetery restorer, and can see ghosts, but unlike the ghost whisperer, Amelia has been raised by her [...]

    2. Me encant Hace tiempo que no le a una novela que durante toda su lectura me mantuviera con el vello erizado Y es que adem s de un ritmo muy gil y un estilo que traspasa la ansiedad de una seguidilla de acontecimientos que te mantienen pendiente del libro en todo momento, la autora logra una historia muy original, combinando en forma muy equilibrada la condici n paranormal de la protagonista con el misterio asociado a una serie de asesinatos.Giros en la trama, m s de una sorpresa y unas ganas ter [...]

    3. So beautiful and chilling The Restorer was recommended to me by someone I trust implicitly when it comes to books that someone being my favorite author, Ann Aguirre so it s no wonder I didn t hesitate to pick it up as soon as I found it in my mailbox My intention was to read a chapter or two to get a feel of the story and then leave it for the night, but I ended up reading it all in one sitting Let me tell you, reading this book at night, in a dark and silent house wasn t the smartest move I eve [...]

    4. I abandon most paranormal series because they re rather annoying Most of the ones I ve tried to read have contained vampires, werewolves, etc and a variation of otherworldly politics and conspiracies, one would have to use a great deal of suspension of disbelief to really get into those stories This series is believable, it s not too out there as far as paranormal activities go One can be induced to believe that ghosts do exist, and aren t visible to everyone This book sticks to ghosts, the subt [...]

    5. 2.5 StarsThe Restorer was a mixed bag for me Let s start with what I enjoyed The creepy vibe I do love the thrill of wondering what darkness lurks in the shadows I can t think of a place I d feel tension and an undercurrent of fear than an old cemetery in the South Ms Stevens made the setting sound beautiful, but haunting, just the way I love a spooky story The ghosts were a believable presence upping the scare factor big time The mystery unfolding, although it s one of my complaints, as well, [...]

    19. 4.5 starsEerie, haunting, and definitely spooky, The Restorer is unlike any ghost story I ve read before The Restorer is part ghost story, part murder mystery There s a touch of voodoo and witchcraft in it along with a mysterious secret order Add in a pretty eccentric cast of characters and there you have it a compelling read.Amelia Gray sees dead people She s seen them for most of her life Amelia follows a strict set of rules to help her cope with her ability so that no ghost will attach to her [...]

    22. Amelia GrayJohn DevlinSeveral years ago I visited Charleston, South Carolina in the middle of summer The weather was hot, the humidity was oppressive and the pace, well, people took their time I signed up for a graveyard ghost tour, not my normal vacation time activity But it was Charleston, and being a Southern history fan, I couldn t resist This was the center of antebellum South, where the cruelty of slavery and the genteel manners of Southern folks co existed I loved my tour and I loved imag [...]

    29. Touted as a fresh new entry into the paranormal romance, The Restorer is am ambitious work at trying to break stereotypes within the genre However despite it s awesome paranormal component, interesting back stories for it s characters the restorer really fell flat in the character department and the almost unrealistic romantic portion which kind of ruined the reading experience for me Fans of paranormal will enjoy this if you can get through the cringe worth romantic parts.The romance portion of [...]

    30. Amelia Gray sees dead people, which is all well and good since she makes her living restoring old and neglected cemetaries Seeing the dearly departed however comes with a cost, one that was imparted to her at the tender age of nine by her father, who also shares her odd ability It seems there are certain hard and fast rules about the dead but it mainly boils down to pretending they re not there Abiding by the rules makes for a somewhat lonely and isolated life but, like any true southern belle, [...]
