Scout Lawson is fleeing an unhappy past, and thinks she’s run as far as she can from Yale University when she lands a job restoring a library in Cornwall, England for reclusive rock star George Wilder, who dropped out of sight after the death of his beautiful wife the year before. As soon as she arrives at his estate, Farraway Mist, however, strange things start to happen. As the couple’s feelings for each other grow, the events become more harrowing, until everything they hold dear is in peril.
After reading Tani Hanes’ entire UK Crush series in a few months I was over the moon to get the chance to read her new novel in advance of its publication. Farraway Mist is quite different from the UK Crush novels, but Tani Hanes writing is very distinctive and as soon as I started writing I very much felt wrapped in familiarity.
Scout Lawson is ready for a fresh start and has taken a job as a librarian in Cornwall for a reclusive ex-rock star George WIlder. George has been out of commission since his wife died the year before.
Sparks fly between the two almost immediately, although various things get in their way from assumptions they make about each other to strange things that start happening around the house putting them in danger.
I loved the paranormal element to this novel, it added a new level to the novel above the romance, I wasn’t sure what was going to happen or when and just wanted these two characters to fight their way through it. While I loved that they come together and it ramps up the supernatural I found their jump from nothing to trying for a baby a bit odd. It felt like they missed several steps on the relationship ladder, and their families are so cool and relaxed about it.
The climax of the novel is deeply moving, hugely tense and I really didn’t see how it was going to work out at all. There’s a lot that’s not explained but I think with paranormal elements it doesn’t need to be, as readers we can accept that things happen for the reasons we are given and that’s all we need to know.
Overall, an adorable paranormal romance with lovable characters.
Huge thanks to Tani Hanes for sending me the eBook copy which I have read and reviewed honestly.
