Thomasine Rappold: The Lady Who Lived Again Sole Survivor #1

Dolly a minor character are worth anything at all And that includes the supposed hero and her best friendFrankly I liked her best friend Amelia until she single handedly managed to ruin almost verything there at the All Quiet on the Western Front end and then blithely went on about her life And while there was some degree of chemistry between Jace and Maddie I didn t really warm up to him until the verynd at allFor all that though I liked Maddie so well and História do Rei Transparente enjoyed her journey so much that it bumped up my rating tremendously I was also interested in thevents of the town and how things would resolve And I am Best Mechanic Ever especially hoping that as this series plays out that we get to see Dolly s happilyver afterBut don t read this Dinosaur Dinners expecting somepic love story or a woman who gets rescued by the love of a man because in this case it is almost like the classic video game situation only in reverse Jace is the princess in the tower with no agency and he is Maddie s prize in the In His Blood end for completing her uest But for readers who like that sort of thing of which I am one I heartily recommend this bookhttpsburnsthroughherbookshelfword35 stars Madeleine was once a very popular girl She and her friends were loved byveryone but Desert Kings (Deathlands, ever since their accident of which she was

she never despairs She s a strong and capable woman She knows who she is and she s smart Being with Jace improves her life and that was wonderful to see Jace is a kind and caring man He s passionate about his profession which is why working together with a woman with an unscientific gift might prove to be too difficult I couldn t wait to see where their relationship would lead and what Jace would do when he d find out about Maddie s ability Their agreement is interesting andven though they aren t an actual couple it s clear that they re attracted to Exposed (Annika Bengtzon, each other I loved the chemistry between them and liked the fact that they re both intelligent people with a strong opinion That makes interesting reading Thomasine Rappold combines historical romance with a paranormal aspect and as I m a big fan of magical realism this mix made me very happy It s wellxecuted and the Ooko era it s set in works perfectly with the ability of the main character I also loved the colorful descriptions of the setting Misty Lake is an intriguing town and I reallynjoyed reading about it I kept hoping its inhabitants would be friendlier to Maddie again as she doesn t deserve to be shunned and disrespected Her story is impressive and I loved it from beginning to Naked end 35 Stars For three years Maddie Sutter has been living as an outcast Once one of the most popular and admired young ladies in town she is now treated as a pariah shunned by the people who were once her friends all because she was the sole survivor of a driving accident that took the lives of three

she s had Shadow Scale (Seraphina, ever since the accident the power to heal with her touch But her only remaining friend who was on a European tour at the time of the accident is coming home to get

Sparks fly and Maddie revels in the fact that he knows nothing about her past and sees her for who she is rather than what she s done When a run in with the fiance who jilted her turns nasty Maddie

doctor can make a good family man having witnessed the unhappiness in his parents marriage His past relationships have been limited to uick couplings amid the demands and horrors of a big city hospitalmergency room and he s never In the Shadow of the Crown (Queens of England, envisioned himself settling down But he can t deny how much henjoys having Maddie in his life He admires her

him As the socialvent of the decade brings out the best and worst in people Jace and Maddie find themselves fighting for than just their hearts and Maddie will have to decide if she can trust Jace with the biggest secret of allI am always on the lookout for something new and different in historical romance and I went into this one with high hopes I really wanted to love this and I did like it but it didn t blow me away as I d hoped I thought it Hello, Hippo! Goodbye, Bird! ended up being fairly predictable and there were some inconsistencies not only in the plot but also in the world building and Maddie s characterization Would anyone really call a deer hunter a murderer in the nineteenth century Were there really dozens of slutty nurses running around The same woman they’d always admired with just one hiddenxception she awoke from the accident with the ability to heal Doctor Jace Merrick has fled the failures and futility of city life to start anew in rural Misty Lake A man of science he rejects the superstitious chatter surrounding Maddie and finds himself drawn to her conf.

Madeline Sutter was in a wagon accident with her 3 friends possibly 4 the called the group the 5 fairest but later there was another girl who was one of the fairest too This is why internal consistency is important She wakes up from the dead with the ability to heal The local doctor was incompetent missing that she was just unconscious and the local preacher declared her a devil Social ostracism for years The new doctor is determined to bring science to this backwards communityWhy I started this book I read a review that looked promising and I am always on the hunt for new paranormal romance andor historical romance Why I finished it It was short and honestly strange This book answers the uestion of what would happen if you added sex scenes and paranormal plot lines to a Christian fiction genre stock characters The answer is nothing good but like a wagon accident you have to crane your neck just for the sheer novelty alone I wasn t sure what to Cannibal expect when I got this book for free but I very muchnjoyed the storyI m not Mastered (The Enforcers, exactly sure how to describe this as it has a bit of several things drama romance unexplainable circumstances small town prejudice but overall what I liked most was the characters and the attempts they make to deal with the challenges that life throws at themMadeline is a wonderful character and I liked her a lot She is in a terrible situation being the town s hated and feared pariah but she never becomes bitter or hateful in spite of the way she s treated and still tries to help whenever she canWithout giving spoilers Maddie has an odd ability after the accident that killed her friends She tries to help when she canven though it just makes the ignorant fearful townspeople Man, Son of Man even nasty to her It s an interesting twist to the storyspecially when she becomes involved as the office assistant to the new do This once again is a new author for me I was impressed by the summary and thought to give it a try and am uite glad I did THE LADY WHO LIVED AGAIN is the story of a young woman Madeline Sutter who was in a wagon accident with four of her friends Madeline and all four friends were killed in this accident according to the doctor who pronounced them dead Madeline was misdiagnosed and seemed to come out of what had to have been a coma The townspeople led by the pastor who had lost his daughter in the accident accused her of being a demon and cursed by coming back to life Bad Alter Ego enough to be thought of as a pariah in the town she had grown up in but some kind of miracle had allowed her to come back with an innate ability to heal An ability Madeline truly had to keep hidden or she would be viewed asven of cursed individual by a maddened pastor When the doctor who misdiagnosed Madeline retired Doctor Jace Merrick who had fled the city for the country life of a town doctor came to replace him A logical man after hearing the superstitious gossip concerning Madeline Jace became something of her champion and began to admire her strength as well as her beauty As Madeline came to have strong feelings for Jace and knowing of his issues with his father she knew she must keep her healing talents hidden from him The story itself was truly uite ngaging and Ms Rappold fleshed out all the characters remarkably well with nough information to interpret all their motivations The idea of Madeline having to ask Jace to pretend to be her fianc for the sake of her only friend s wedding so that she could attend was just one Uncommon Wisdom example of her strength and determination to make the best of her untenable position in Misty Lake NY Jace and Madeline s romance followed in a reasonable way and was both sweet and sensual Dialogs were succinct and the secondary characters and different scenario s were all tied into and added depth to thentire story All in all the writing and story were both Unseen City engaging and highlynjoyable Marilyn Rondeau I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher via NetGalley for a fair and honest review and rated it 5 out of 5 StarsA captivating mixture of paranormal and historical romance The Lady Who Lived Again by Thomasine Rappold grabbed my attention from the first page and never let go The first book in a new series Ms Rappold s story is filled with colorful characters sharp dialogue and a scintillating romance Set in a small town in upstate New York showcasing the best and worst of small town living Ms Rappold s Soul Survivor series is off to a promising start Ms Rappold does a good job introducing us to her characters right from the start A young woman who survived a catastrophic accident that claimed the life of three of her best friends Madeleine Sutter is both Art emotionally and physical strong She s also beautiful intelligent and very lonely due to the small minded nature of several people in town Iasily connected with her from the start and God Is in the Crowd enjoyed watching her character develop like a butterflymerging from its cocoon Especially since she s come back from death with a gift she keeps a secret Ms Rappold also did a good job developing Jace Merrick the new doctor in town who uickly finds himself attracted to both Madeleine and the mystery behind her accident recovery and reputation A man of science who both wants to heal his patients and change the brutal nature of disease Jace is intelligent curious and somewhat flawed He s also somewhat of a womanizer who only misses one thing from living and working in a big city hospital the nurses While I liked Jace and had no problems connecting with his character I wasn t always sure he was a good fit for Madeleine At least at the very beginning The attraction and romance between Madeleine and Jace is well developed and felt natural The story is well paced and I liked how Ms Rappold brought Madeleine and Jace into Attracting Songbirds to Your Backyard each other sveryday life so that they could get to know The Matriarchs (The Family each other better I also liked how it gave us a chance to get to know the characters in town better as we got to watch them interact with Madeleine and Jace as individuals and as a couple The secondary characters are well written and several of them prove to be very challenging to deal withWill Madeleine share the secret behind her recovery and her gift Will Jace accept that there might be things in life science can txplain And will their attraction and romance turn into something permanent You ll have to read The Lady Who Lived Again to find out I loved it and can t wait to read the next book in this series I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher via Netgalley this does not affect my opinion of this book or the content of my reviewYou typically Notes for the Everlost expect doctors to be Mary Stus in fiction assuming they aren t thevil villain but this one is something of a cad and a rake Jace is also than a bit of a know it all ass Maddie on the other hand it is hard to get a handle on her all puffing preening flirtation one minute soundly grounded and reasonable the next and flighty as all hell the next oneBut as we see just how the townspeople have treated Maddie and how she bears up under it and faces down her fears you can t help but learn to like her She learns to truly live again and we watch her blossom on the page and it is HER doing not the love of nay man or the regard of any other person Frankly I don t think anyone When I Moan (Vassi and Seri 1: Russian Stepbrother Romance) else besides her grandfather and their two servants who aren t really fleshed out and. Madeleine Sutter was once the belle of the ball at the popular resort town of Misty Lake New York But as the sole survivor of the community’s worst tragedy she’s come under suspicion Longing for the life she oncenjoyed she accepts a rare social invitation to the No Biggy! event of the season Now she will be able to showveryone she’s.

Ack then for Jace to slake his lust with And in the pivotal scene where Maddie runs into her Crush It! ex fiance and invents her fakengagement why was Maddie at the dressmaker searching for the perfect dress to wear to the wedding when we later find out she had been in the wedding party all along and the bride had already ordered a dress for her And this one bothered me most of all Maddie says she s never backed down from a challenge when Jace determines there will be no kisses between them and he s going to treat her professionally yet for three years she s been hiding from the challenge of reclaiming her place in society It would have been nice to see her display as much backbone with the townspeople as she did with JaceBut overall I thought this was an Attracting Birds to Your Backyard enjoyable romance withnough uniueness about it to help it stand out from the crowd It s well paced and plotted and I couldn t put it down as I became absorbed in the characters lives and in wondering if Jace and the town would overcome their prejudices and accept Maddie for who she is I really liked the setting in a small upstate New York town and in the practice of a young doctor struggling to convince old fashioned superstitious people to Deep Listening embrace modern medicine The tension between Maddie and Jace is sizzling there s plenty ofmotional angst and the romance is sweet and satisfying The Lady Who Lived Again is a promising debut and I will be looking for from this author This review was originally posted to Romantic Historical Reviews I received a free Bird-by-Bird Gardening eARC from the publisher via NetGalley inxchange for an honest reviewMadeleine Sutter used to be one of the town favorites The Works of Saint Augustine everybody loved having her around Girls wanted to be like her boys wanted to be with her Until one day she s in a terrible accident where she and her friends are declared dead but Maddie doesn t really die and she gets blamed for the whole thing and her neighbors start giving her the cold shoulderThis girl is strong as hellThe people from Misty Lake are awful Poor Maddie here was in an accident where her best friends died and she almost died herself was then close to losing a leg and they re treating her like crap Had this taken place some years before they might haveven burned her at the stake To me it was very admirable and kind of frustrating how nice she was Her neighbors were very mean to her and she still wanted the best for them and use her healing powers to help them Girl no Let them have whatever comes at them I m sorry I consider myself a nice person but I don t think I could find it in me to go out of my way to help someone who says it d be better for veryone if I were dead what I would never harm them of course but I think I d just let them beAlthough she does mention than once that this whole xperience has made her a better person So I don t knowAnd these men of faith in the story are just the worst of them all Even Maddie s fianc left her because of what happened Just when she needed him the most And on top of that he started treating her like all the othersAnd there s a point in the story when I kind of understood why they might be treating her like that but it turns out that it s all just a big misunderstanding Plus the number one reason they re being jerks is because they think she s cursed or whateverJace on the other hand was really sweet I loved how he defended her and played the part of her fianc But it s only obvious that he wouldn t believe her to be a monster He s a man of science and it didn t make sense to him that she could be some kind of demon Although I ll admit that I didn t really like him being a womanizer I mean He seduced dozens of women and the only thing he missed about the hospital he used to work at was its ample supply of willing nurses with whom to sate his body s carnal demands And he said he never had much free time when working at the hospitalAnyway he was still nice to Maddie although he was mean a few times but I think that was just his personality and him being narrow minded about certain mattersIf you re interested in historical romance My Teacher Is a Robot especially if it has a little touch of fantasy then consider getting this book It s a verynjoyable read and I m definitely looking forward to reading the next one There was actually an Supper Club excerpt of the second book in this and it s really goodMore reviews on my blog Lipstick and Mocha wwwmelissa413readsalotblogspotcomMILD SPOILERS Four dead girls on the slab on the twelfth day of May On Friday the thirteenth one girl walked away That is what the kids would sing about Maddie I loved this book a lot I really felt sorry for Madeleine Sutter Maddie in the book After an accident kills all of her best friends but one that was out of town and she came back to life the next day the whole town didn t want anything to do with her The stupid jerk Paster Hogle hadveryone believing she was the devil Did the jerk think the doctor could have made a mistake Did he not think that God brought her back for good works Nooopppppeee She s a demon from hell in his Moanas New Friend (Disney Moana) eyes The only person that in the town that doesn t treat her badly is her own grandfather She lives with him and takes care of him along with their hired help Maddie still has her best friend Amelia that is coming to town to get married and wants Maddie at the wedding Maddie wants nothing to do with it becauseveryone will just be upset with her being there I say they can suck it Maddie is a very sweet woman and has done nothing to deserve all of this but it is 1882 and people are weird Maddie did come back with an ability She can heal with her handsmost things anyway Does that make her a bad person NO She has kept this secret to herself otherwise they would skin and tar her I do believe Along comes a new doctor to town after the old one decides to retire His name is Jace Merrick Maddie had an Professional Capital encounter with him in the woods before she knew who he was I can t tell you EVERYTHING but shends up helping him get his office up and running She also got him in a bind when she told some of the people that dumped her as a friend they were Seven Dwarfs Find a House (Disney Classic) engaged and going to Amelia s wedding together After finding out all about Maddie s life what happened and how she was treated Jace decided he would go along with her ruse He was livid at the people in the town for treating her this way After spending some time togetherhmmmm can you guess what happens Yep they get together Later on in the book he finds out about her ability when a bad seuence ofvents occurs He s afraid at first and shocked but then it all falls into place Like I said before I loved this book I love the cover I love the time frame the author puts us in and the characters are all played out very well And if your looking for it there are some nice sexy scenes in the book too This one is going on my to buy list I would like to thank NETGALLEY and KENSINGTON BOOKS for giving me the opportunity to read this book in Berlioz, Vol. 2 exchange for my honest review Want to read a book with an MC that is as fierce as this Destiny s Child song I m a survivor whatI m not gon give up whatI m not gon stop whatI m gon work harder whatI m a survivor whatI m gonna make it whatI will survive whatKeep on survivin whatHonestly I wasn txpecting to love this book as much as I did I highly

Idence and beauty And when she seduces him into a sham ngagement he agrees to be her ticket back into society if she supports his new practice and reveals the details of her remarkable recovery But when his patients begin to heal miraculously Jace may have to abandon logic accept the inexplicable and surrender to a love beyond reas.
