NIGHT OF THE CANDLES

Shortly after the end of the Civil War, lovely Amanda Trent arrives at her cousin's Louisiana plantation to find Amelia dead by mysterious circumstances. Amelia's widower, Jason Monteigne, harbors a darkness in his heart. But Jason isn't the only one on the war-torn grounds with secrets.

When inexplicable things start to happen, Amanda fears the home is haunted and that she's being guided from beyond into a dead woman's life, a dead woman's romance -- and, quite possibly, a dead woman's grave...

Ensnared in a web of mystery, passion and hidden desire, Amanda vows to unravel the truth about her cousin's death, and to discover what it is that haunts Jason's every waking moment.

Synopsis

Arriving at her cousin's war-torn Louisiana plantation, Amanda Trent learns of the woman's tragic death, and finds herself in a world of mystery, desire, and danger as she tries to make sense of the situation.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fine gothic/historical romance 9. März 2011
Von booker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Amanda Trent arrives at the aforementioned creepy plantation house with a necklace to deliver to its inheritor, her cousin Amelia. Unfortunately she discovers that Amelia has been dead for three months and the old mansion is simmering with repressed emotions and intrigues. Amanda is confronted by a wall of secrets in the persons of Jason (the widower), Sophia (the hopeful replacement), Theo (Sophia's brother, who carries a torch for Amelia), Marta (Amelia's drunken nurse) and crazed Confederate veteran Carl, who roams the estate at night with Amelia's dog. When Amanda is injured, she is forced to prolong her visit and she doggedly tries to learn what is behind all the tension. Meanwhile, she discovers that she didn't know her cousin as well as she thought she did. Was Amelia a callous flirt? A simpering invalid? A conniving schemer? Did she commit suicide? Or was it...murder?

I haven't read many gothics, so I'm not all that familiar with the clichés and tropes of the genre. If I were, I might have found this run-of-the-mill and ordinary, but since I'm not I thought it was a refreshing change of pace from the bodice rippers and Harlequins that is my usual diet. I liked the historical setting, and Maxwell/Blake used her preferred setting of New Orleans and environs. She brought the current political situation of the time - carpetbaggers - and the nightrides of the Klan into the plot to cast doubt and suspicion on the characters and keep Amanda on her toes and endlessly wondering.

Of course the main man of interest, Jason, has to be both frightening and attractive, and matters are complicated when Amanda finds herself doing things very much against her nature. She has always been the staid sort, while Amelia was an impulsive creature, and sometimes she feels like she is being controlled by Amelia's spirit. Such carrying-on does not find favor with Sophia, who wants to marry Jason as soon as possible. Amanda's own fiancé, Nathaniel, also arrives to muddle things and drag Amanda back into the life they had planned together. However, coming to this house has changed Amanda in a way that makes her dread going back to the way things were.

Amanda was a great heroine. She confronts her own unconscious resentment of her dear, dead cousin and by communing with her spirit (whether actual or not is sort of left up to debate) she realizes that she had never truly acted like her real self.

In the end, everyone gets sorted out and punished or rewarded, depending on their past actions. The ending is pretty rushed with a wrap-up of their immediate futures, but not enough to bring it down too much.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Boring, cliche-ridden and silly 19. April 2014
Von elaine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Yes, I know it is billed as a gothic--but REALLY, this one pulls out every known cliché in the book. As other reviewers have indicated, the book moves very slowly and most often goes nowhere. We are supposed to believe that a relationship grows between the h and her cousin's widower, the H, but we never see them truly interact. It is unbelievable. Most of the time, he is drinking from his guilt over the cousin's death. The dead cousin reappears every now and then when she occupies the h's body. Why ?? It does not appear that the dead cousin is coming back with a message about how she was killed etc. Just kind of randomly wants to inhabit her cousin the h's body?? spoiler--yes, the cousin was killed but it was a mercy killing because she has a brain tumor and was in agony. So--why would she need to haunt anyone? Why should anyone be punished for that? Why does the dead cousin stop coming back to inhabit her cousin's body? The h is engaged to a man who is presented as a twerp, self-centered and pompous. But the h herself is a very smart, attractive woman with an inheritance. Why would she be limited to this dolt? And then at the end, he acts in a very caring and sensitive fashion, completely out of the character throughout the rest of the book. We have brooding nurses, crazy vagrants, menacing nightriders, and a jealous conniving woman who wants the H for her own. But none of these characters is necessary nor do they add a great deal to the plot. They are primarily a distraction. Gothics I can take, but this one was just silly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Novel Of Love And Possession 20. Juli 2004
Von m-lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Lovely Amanda Trent hadn't known, when she came to the decaying Monteigne mansion to give her cousin Amelia a valuable family heirloom, that her cousin had recently died under mysterious circumstances. Nor did she know that she so strongly resembled the deceased . . .
But soon after her arrival, strange things began to happen to her. Inexplicable things that couldn't happen. And suddenly Amanda realized that she was slowly being guided from beyond into a dead woman's life, a dead woman's romance -- and, quite possibly, a dead woman's grave . . .
An excellent example of this genre. Highly recommended.
2.0 von 5 Sternen I can sum this book up in one word: BORING 10. März 2014
Von SafjSmith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
After hitting her head in a fall during a visit, Amanda must stay at the home of her recently dead identical cousin until she recouperates. I only made it two thirds through the book because almost all Amanda did was sleep or sit up in bed, wondering about people, thinking about things that happened, speculating about things that might, and occassionally being possessed by the ghost of her dead cousin, Amelia. That last part SOUNDS interesting, but it's really not - turns out Amelia loves to change Amanda's clothes and think about how poorly Amanda dresses - ooooohhh, spooky, not. I couldn't take it anymore! I felt like I was the one confined to my room and bored out of my skull. I abandon the book. If I had been Amanda, I would have thrown myself down a flight of stairs. Amelia should move on and thank whoever killed her for getting her out of such a boring and restrictive life!

I like books written by Jennifer Blake and I think she is a good writer but I don't really care for this one. It rambles along and then in the last chapter everything is wrapped up at once and fast-forwarded thru the next five years. Then the last couple of paragraphs leave you with a feeling that Amelia has been reborn in their little girl. It left me with an unsettling feeling.
