    1. Read my original review at: merikthorne/2017/.4.5 starsWhen the narrator of For Elise buys a supposedly haunted mansion, he is disappointed to find it, well, lacking at least in the sense of inspiration for his novel. But the tides turn when an invisible, Frank-Sinatra-loving grammar Nazi finds a red editor's pen and takes to revising and commenting on his work.I adore Hayden Wand's books, and For Elise was certainly no exception! With a rich, classic prose, Hayden delivers a fun and light-heart [...]

    2. Such a cute, fun read! I had a huge smile on my face all the way through. I loved the blend of an Edgar-Allan-Poe-ish narrator voice with a contemporary setting, and the humour was wonderful - not forced or overdone, but took full advantage of all the comedic potential in the story.I felt there was some room for improvement in a couple of areas, but the humour, originality, and sheer fun of this story swept me away. I also appreciated the solution to the narrator's ghost problem, and the pro-hap [...]

    3. This has got to be the most adorable ghost story ever. From the epigraph to the drollery of the narration to the protagonist's relationship with Elise, it hits all of its notes just right (and I loved the theme about the place of joy and happy endings in fiction). A delightful short read!

    4. Oh my goodness! What a cute little story! It's like a peppermint--short-lasting, but sugary and fresh, leaving you with a cozy feeling long after In the first few pages, our hero is headed in an alarming and dangerous direction in his pursuit for ghostly genius. But what he seeks is not exactly what he findsFor such a short story, the characters are beautifully realized, pearls of wisdom are perfectly scattered, and the ending is happily met. Now, for those who don't approve of ghostly encounter [...]

    5. I really loved this! It was such a sweet and fun story. And I love all the humor scattered throughout. *spoilers* I feel that if the story had ended at the last 1st person point of view chapter, it would have been much more poignant. Extremely sad, yes, but somehow more touching. But, at the same time, I would have been upset with that ending, so I AM glad of the happy ending. And of course, a happy ending is in keeping with Elise's own view of things. I suppose the story would have felt hopeles [...]

    6. For Eliseby Hayden WandWhen the narrator's great aunt passed away, she left him a large sum of money, simply to keep her more bothersome relatives from obtaining it. Coming into the money, the narrator quit his fast food job and bought a Queen Anne Victorian house upon learning it was haunted. The great house seems to be the perfect place to launch his writing career given the folklore attached to it. He expects tattered white dresses, rattling chains and eerie moans, yet instead he finds that h [...]

    7. I have to say, when I opened the preview on , I had no intention of buying For Elise -- I was simply curious.Well, having finished the book less than 24 hours later, I can safely say I LOVED it. I don't think I've ever read such a delightful ghost story.Firstly, the cover. I liked it from the start, but it's even more charming to me after having read the story :)Then there's the characters. Elise is wonderful; I especially loved how she stayed true to character, even with all the changes that sh [...]

    8. This novelette is sweet, tender, and quirky. It's easy to care for the two main characters - even though the hero can come across as a bit pretentious, perhaps. (Maybe reading about him in the third-person rather than hearing from him in the first-person would have made him even more likable?) Still, this is a fun little story with some good lines!

    9. Took about half an hour to read. I enjoyed it, but the length of the book was a bit disappointing, I felt like I didn't exactly know the characters as well as I would have liked. Other wise it was a sweet book and a quick fun read

    10. Wonderful!!!!After many failures, searching for a new author, I found this gem. Made me laugh and fry. What more can you ask for? Can't wait to try another Hayden Wand creation.

    11. This really is a different type of ghost story. I prefer more “bite” but I think many would really enjoy this story about a man and his ghost.
