Good morning everyone I’m on the blog tour for Chasing Ghosts by Madalyn Morgan today and as well as sharing my review I’ve also got details on how to win a copy of this book.

Chasing Ghosts is available now in paperback and ebook, with the ebook only 99p at the moment! Purchase your copy of both here.

Before I share my review and details of the giveaway with you, here is a little bit about the book.

Book Synopsis:

In 1949 after receiving treatment for shell shock in Canada, Claire’s husband disappears.
Has Mitch left her for the woman he talks about in his sleep? Or is he on the run from accusations of wartime treachery?

Claire goes to France in search of the truth, aided by old friends from the Resistance.

My Review:

Chasing Ghosts is a brilliant addition to the Dudley sister’s saga books.  I’ve read a lot of books set in World War Two but not many set just after so it was on to see how the world was still affected by all that had had.  The author has clearly done her research and there is lots of brilliant details about the period that really helps you to picture it in your mind.

Claire is a very strong, competent lady whose bravery in the war was very interesting to read about.  Her obvious concern and love for her husband is very touching to read about.  I enjoyed following her investigation into where her husband had gone and to finding out the truth behind the accusations against him.  This was particularly interesting as it takes the reader across Europe to learn more about the aftermath of the war there.

This isn’t a particularly fast paced book but that doesn’t matter as the reader is soon fully immersed in the story and the characters.  I enjoyed traveling alongside Claire whilst she discovers what has happened and there was lots of stuff happening that kept my interest until the end.

This is the first book by this author I have read and the first in the series.  While this could be read as a standalone I think it would be beneficial to read from the start as unlike a lot of other saga stories this doesn’t have a catch up chapter to let you know what the story is so far.

Huge thanks to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for my copy of this book and for inviting me onto the blog tour.  If you like historical mysteries you’ll love this book.

About The Author:

Madalyn-Morgan-800x860

Madalyn Morgan was an actress for more than thirty years working in repertory theatre, the West End, film and television.

Madalyn was brought up in a busy working-class pub in the market town of Lutterworth in Leicestershire. She was Christened Madalyn Smith, the name she chose when she joined the actors union, Equity. Unfortunately, there was already an actress with that name, so with seconds to decide on another name Madalyn chose Morgan from a rum bottle. “The pub was a great place for an aspiring actress and writer to live. There were so many characters to study and accents learn.” At twenty-four Madalyn gave up a successful hairdressing salon and wig-hire business for a place at East 15 Drama College, and a career as an actress.

In 1990, Madalyn gave up acting for love and love gave her up in 2000. Rather than start again in the acting business, Madalyn became a radio presenter, taught herself to touch type, completed a two-year creative writing course with The Writer’s Bureau, and wrote articles for newspapers and magazines. After living in London for thirty-six years she has returned to Lutterworth, swapping two window boxes and a mortgage, for a garden and the freedom to write. And she is loving it.

Madalyn is currently writing her seventh novel.
