Oxford Shadow {Review}

Oxford Shadows: Book Two In the Oxford Trilogy

"When death is a new beginning and love an old curse.

Still recovering from her last tango with the afterlife, Louisiana-born Madison LeBon struggles not only with her life as an Oxford postgrad but also with her budding love for Rupert Vance, aristocrat extraordinaire. One thing is certain, though: she won’t run away from her powers anymore. From now on she’ll face the music …

… literally!

When a sixteenth-century ghost makes an appearance during a classical concert Madison attends and threatens her boyfriend’s family, she sets out to explore the dark mysteries of the Tudors, even if that means confronting their most royal and homicidal character.

Her plans take an unexpected turn when her voodoo heritage catches up with her. With horror, she understands what her fate was always meant to be.

The question now is: Can Rupert be part of it?”

My Review: 4 of 5 stars 

Marion has brought us back to Oxford in Oxford Shadows: Madison just can’t get a break, her and Rupert are happy and he has been to the States with her and met most of her family, but the ghost just wont go away. While with Rupert and his family Madison is yet again greeted by a not so friendly ghost and her world is rocked upside down again. Will Madison be able to save the lives that are in danger this time or will she be riddled with the guilt of failure.

I enjoyed Oxford Shadows and I am looking forward to Book three. I am sticking with the idea that I enjoy the second book in most trilogies the best. Madison finally has her Prince charming and he adores her but when the events in this book start to unfold all does not stay well in their fairy tale, and that is only part of the story.  Madison has to deal with a 16th century ghost who has been known to kill and she must find the links that will help her solve this problem. Along the way Madison discovers more then just the Ghost secrets but her newly relocated nun of an Aunt has secrets of her own and Madison is at the center of them. There was plenty of mystery and twist to keep me excited and wanting to turn the page to find out what was around the corner. All the characters bring something to the story even our sad Ollie. That helpful professor Jackson continues to give Madison support and wants her to question her aunts motives for moving all  the way to Oxford, but it seems everyone is pointing figures at each other in this book even a new comer from New Orleans who takes a special interest in Madison. Did I mention some of the sexy senses with Rupert and Madison? No? well they are definitely there and they make you want to go find yourself a tall englishman and see what your missing. The ending will leave you screaming and pulling your hair out, so you better start reading. 

If you like Mysteries that involve ghost and history you should check this trilogy out its a must read and you need to read Book one: Oxford Whispers first.

In addition to being an author, I work as an entrepreneur, wife and mother-of-one but spend a good deal of time with books, DVDs and listening to my mp3 player; all for the sake of inspiration, of course.
My debut series, The Oxford Trilogy, has been a blast to write because I can indulge in my favorite types of music: Country and English rock.
