Chopins Ghost- Cary Grossman

This was given to me by the author in exchange for a review.

Chopins Ghost by Cary Grossman
Released: July 20, 2013
Pages: 373
Buy it: Amazon

Fryderyk Chopin, the genius of the Romantic period, has been haunting the dreams of rock star Robin Hanley. The master composer offers more than just music lessons, however; he shows Robin images of a beautiful woman, and of a fire that will claim his life. Immersing himself in the wildly successful band he forms with a friend from school, Robin is unable to explain his ability to change the weather with his moods, predict the impending death of loved ones, or hide from dreams of the mysterious woman. And Chopin won't leave him alone. Shocked and despondent, Robin drops out of a major tour after his estranged wife disappears with the couple's daughter.

Hiding from a world he doesn't understand and memories too painful to endure, it is only when Robin faces his fears, confronts the ghost, and rejoins the world that he can hope to find his missing child and the woman he loves. But neither Suze, the powerful enchantress from his dreams, nor Robin can possibly imagine how old is their history together, or what is actually at stake.

A love story that spans over 25,000 years, Chopin's Ghost is Cary Marc Grossman's first novel, and the first of a three-part series.

I thought this book felt really slow at the beginning.  It took a while to get into the story.   I was really intrigued by the plot of this book and eventually the pace picked up.  Chopin's Ghost was quite mysterious and it took some unexpected turns. While it left me confused a couple times it was still quite entertaining and I could not wait finding out what would happen next..

Filled with some great characters that you get to know.  I was not overly fond of Robin but definitely grew on me as the book progressed.  I enjoyed Suze and found these two were great together.  Angie frustrated me at times, but was glad of the chance to understand her a little more.  Some of the characters took a while to get use to, but overall they were wonderfully developed.

It was quite a well written book with romance and paranormal aspects.   Overall it was a good start of a series and I ended up giving this a 3.5/5.

Have you read Chopin's Ghost yet?  Are you planning on reading it?
