Oxford Whispers (The Oxford Trilogy #1) by Marion Croslydon

Goodreads description:

Madison LeBon is dead set against the dead. 

Her fresh start at Oxford University is a brand new beginning. She finally has a chance to turn the page on her psychic powers and cumbersome voodoo heritage. Snakes, dolls, ghosts, and spirits: Farewell…

Not quite.

When the tragic lovers in a painting—the subject of her first history class—begin to haunt her, she must accept her gift before life imitates art. The lovers warn her against their own nemesis, a Puritan from the English Civil War. Unfortunately, said nemesis is now going all homicidal on Madison. 

College becomes more complicated when she falls hard for Rupert Vance, a troubled aristocrat and descendant of one of the characters in the painting. With the spirit of a murderer after her, Madison realizes that her own first love may also be doomed…


I would like to thank the author, Marion Croslydon, for the book to review.

Best part of the book:  This was not your typical psychic/ghost/spirits story.  It was dubbed "Sookie Stackhouse goes Ivy League"  and it was like that, to a point.  Although there was no Eric Northman, there was Rupert!  Even thought I thought at first he was just going to be a "player" to Madison, he actually needed up to be quiet different. I enjoyed how a painting and the characters in there was the main theme of the story.  It was different and enjoyable.  I loved how Marion Croslydon was able to go from the past to present time with ease.  I was concerned that it might be "choppy" but I was wrong. I think that book 2 will be just as good!

Not so great about the book:  I really don't have anything for this section.  I thought the book was good.  It was a different story line/love story.  I liked the history of the story but there was still modern points too!  I would recommend this book!
