Chasing Brooklyn

by Lisa Schroeder

Book Synopsis (from Goodreads)

Restless souls and empty hearts

Brooklyn can’t sleep. Her boyfriend, Lucca, died only a year ago, and now her friend Gabe has just died of an overdose. Every time she closes her eyes, Gabe’s ghost is there waiting for her. She has no idea what he wants or why it isn’t Lucca visiting her dreams.

Nico can’t stop. He’s always running, trying to escape the pain of losing his brother, Lucca. But when Lucca’s ghost begins leaving messages, telling Nico to help Brooklyn, emotions come crashing to the surface.

As the nightmares escalate and the messages become relentless, Nico reaches out to Brooklyn. But neither of them can admit that they’re being haunted. Until they learn to let each other in, not one soul will be able to rest.

Review

I adore Lisa Schroeder so I had no problems going to my local bookstore immediately to grab my copy of Chasing Brooklyn when it came out!

I enjoyed I Heart You, You Heart Me so I expected for this to be just as wonderful!

Brooklyn is trying to except the lost of her beloved Lucca but how can she when Lucca’s best friend suddenly dies?

Nico is doing his best to get over his brother Lucca but when sudden messages start telling him to help Brooklyn he’s not so sure he knows how.

This story is able to grasp the feeling of lost, not only with a beloved but with a close friend too. It’s able to give you tingles at the back of your neck with the haunting dreams, notes, random playing music, all meaning something, but what?

It’s also able to show love.

I was glad that this wasn’t all made up to be a Romance Novel but had the romance in it. It wasn’t set up to be a Book of Losing Someone but was able to blend that in so well.

Lisa Schroeder has written another book I can gladly say is on my Top Reads List.

I suggest it for anyone looking for a book that has love, lost, and finding!
