Book Notes: Safe Landing by Tess Oliver

Safe Landing"Still trying to cope with her parent’s divorce, seventeen-year-old Brazil Parkin finds her world slipping even further from its once blissful orbit. She blames her mom for the rotten turn her life has taken. Leaving behind her friends, her horse, and a father she adores, Brazil moves with her mother and twin brothers to a 19th century beach house with a shady history.


Brazil is determined to remain a recluse, but an unexpected kiss, a nearly disastrous airplane landing, and the lingering spirit of a lovesick boy help open Brazil’s eyes to a world outside of her own universe."

This book was a fun, quick and easy read. I liked Brazil's character for the most part because she always had a nice pinch of sarcasm and wit to her conversations. Though at the same time, she did whine a bit too much at times. I feel like the story was more about Brazil somewhat finding herself and coming to terms with her new life, than it being a paranormal romance. I say this because there wasn't much of a love story between Sebastian, the ghost, and her. Their relationship was more about friendship. I absolutely loved Sebastian and really felt for him. He made me want to read an old 1800's love story because I loved the way he spoke. I wish people still spoke with such emotion. The only real complaints I have for this book is that the love story could've been more developed and the stories needed more closure. I felt the ending to be a bit rushed. Overall though, Oliver wrote great characters with great appeal for the reader and created a world I'd love to live in.
