Four stars
"...who doesn't love a good ghost story! Ghost shows up in your house, haunts you, asks you for favors and basically tells you what to do constantly... gotta love it! :) I would recommend Lost in Light if you're in the mood for this type of book...it has mystery, romance, and some history."

"Castillo created an interesting, and expertly woven tale that is fraught with romance and mystery. Dori’s guardedness, Vicente’s rough edges and Grammy’s spunkiness all made for very real characters and good story telling. Castillo knows how to dish up a story with some spice, and I’ll be looking forward to more adventures from Castillo in the future."

"Mary Castillo has written such a rich and compelling novel... I was pretty much glued to this book. To say I was behind Dori the whole way is an understatement. I love her! We’re given scenes from both the present and the past and the narrative reveals to us Vicente’s story bits by bits, which is both good for the pace and to get me going. Both timelines were wonderful and I wasn't grumbling when I was reading about the other. The novel was just plain great the whole time."

"The story is a page turner with old flames, sexy ghosts, family obligations that we all contend with, humor, and bonds with new female friends."
