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
Spoiler Free Review
After living in Dells for her whole life, Sabrina Monroe is ready to leave, constantly feeling degraded by her high school bullies. The feeling of comfort did not exist for her, even if her family was still in Dells. But what people didn’t know is that the Monroe women could see ghosts, being one of the few people to help these ghosts move onto the beyond. So when Sabrina is introduced to Ray, a handsome man who is the owner of a supper club, he can’t seem to let go of the attraction that he has for her. But, Sabrina’s grumpy exterior isn’t something that Ray is worried about.
The Kindred Spirits Supper Club was a cute novel and I enjoyed reading about Sabrina and Ray as they came together. I gave The Kindred Spirits Supper Club 3.5 stars, enjoying Sabrina and Ray’s relationship and the paranormal side of this book. Throughout the book, I could understand Sabrina’s frustration towards the people of the small town, especially this women, the daughter of a rich family, who has constantly bullied and undermined Sabrina her entire life. Sabrina has been called weird her entire life, but, only to protect the fact that she can see ghosts.
I found The Kindred Spirits Supper Club fun to read, however, I felt that Molly’s storyline to be the one that I was most excited to read about. While I enjoyed reading about Ray and Sabrina, I felt that the relationship was rather, average, not much spark between the two. While I enjoyed reading this, I felt that I didn’t feel the excitement in Ray and Sabrina’s relationship or the compatibility between them. Yes, they worked well together, but, I felt that their friendship was really strong and that their romantic relationship was quite forced.
Although I gave The Kindred Spirits Supper Club 3.5 stars, I highly recommend people read this. It was adorable and I had a fun time reading the paranormal activity and Molly’s journey through the book is what made me enjoy this book.
