Can you say love? That’s the way I felt about the novel Yonder, the newest offering by author LeeAnne Hanson. Set in pre-WWII Southern Mississippi, this story is the perfect balance of spooky, romantic, fun and heartwarming, and I truly could not have enjoyed it more. In it we find Isabel Delilah Jones, newly returned from New York City to be with her father while he is dying. Dealing with heartbreak of her own, she finds herself also needing to figure out a strange inheritance, attempt to play peacemaker between two former friends, and deal with a haunting from a young child. A child that seems to have a message that might help her figure out the answer to a mystery only she will be able to unravel.

This was such an enchanting read, and I enjoyed it from its front cover through to the last page. I read Yonder all at once, rushing through it with delighted glee. LeeAnne Hanson has a true gift with language, her descriptions of the South in this time period were spot on, and the way she developed the characters will have you truly caring about each of them. There are some steamy scenes as well, and they were exceptionally well done. Yonder will appeal to any reader who loves romance, mystery, intrigue, ghost stories, stories of the South or who just plain loves a good book. I, for one, am thrilled that this book is the first in a series, and simply cannot wait for LeeAnne Hanson’s next book!

It had been a while since the last time a book has kept me up way after midnight. I just couldn't put it down. And I missed that feeling. This fantastic author has the perfect recipe for a terrific story: a ghost, heart warming romance, secrets from the past, the 40's and an unexpected end. Stir and Voilà! A wonderful story that gets you hooked from the very beginning till the end. Two thumbs Up!
