Product Description

Rhiannon Dee, a gorgeous witch, moves to a country town to reopen a theater and finds herself torn between the man who owns it, and his father who haunts it.

Kip Daniels has been haunting the Hamlet Majestic for thirty dull years, ever since the stage roof collapsed on him during what was meant to be his piece de resistance: his performance of Hamlet. All he really wants is to get to the end of the play, but that won't happen while the theater stands abandoned and boarded up. He's resigned himself to an endless limbo ... until Rhiannon Dee moves to town to bring the theater back to life.

Rhi has fled a failed life in New York. She can't find work as an actress. She's overshadowed by her mother who has a hit TV show about witchcraft. Rhi is sick of being seen as a witch and intends to turn her back on the craft. But she quickly discovers she can't escape her gifts, especially when she needs to use them to help one very sexy but sad ghost cross over. Surrounded by new friends and supportive townsfolk, Rhi breathes new life into the Hamlet Majestic, and helps Kip accept his death.

Hamlet's Ghost is a story about those moments in life that define us, and how to truly move forward we must find peace with the past.

Hamlet's Ghost is the third book in the Shakespeare Sisters series.

Another enchanting romance by Australian author Jane Tara, Hamlet’s Ghost, though ostensibly the third book in a series featuring the magical Shakespeare family (the first is Forecast and the second Trouble Brewing), works well as a stand-alone.

Frustrated by an acting career going no where, and heartbroken after finding her boyfriend in bed (well on a coffee table to be more accurate) with her best friend, when Rhiannon Dee discovers an abandoned, rundown theater in the small town of Hamlet she decides to reopen it. The Hamlet Majestic has stood empty for almost thirty years, after a ceiling collapse resulted in the tragic death of the former owner, Kip Daniels, during the opening night performance of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. His son, Tad, who inherited the property seems to have mixed feelings about the project but Rhi, despite Tad’s weirdness, and the objections of her witch of a mother, is determined to restore the Majestic to its former glory and breathe new life into Hamlet’s theater.

Hamlet’s Ghost is a lighthearted contemporary romance with a hint of mystery, and a paranormal twist.

Rhi is a witch, and though she is determined to disown her heritage in order to disassociate herself from her teenage role as ‘Witchlet’ and escape her mother’s overbearing influence, she learns there is no escaping who you are. I liked Rhi a lot, she refuses to wallow in self pity despite recent events and is determined to make a success of the theater. To do so she has to figure out how to help the former owner, Kip, who haunts the premises, move on.

But there is more than simply unfinished business keeping Kip earthbound, additional drama stems from the surprising links between Rhi’s mother, local cafe owner/tarot card reader Crystal, and the ghost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another whimsical delight from Jane Tara 14 August 2014

When a book contains so many of my favorite story elements - theater, Shakespeare, ghosts, witches, and the whimsical writing of Jane Tara - it's a no-brainer that I'd be counting the days until I could pick this one up. And, as usual, I wasn't disappointed.

Rhiannon (Rhi) is an actress and witch who has grown frustrated with overcoming her image as the latter to be taken seriously as the former. After a personal setback, she begins a new life in the small town of Hamlet, where she comes across a charming, but run-down, theater called the Hamlet Majestic and decides to open its doors once again. This is a story not only about Rhi's journey (and mistaken identity love interests!), but also those in the town around her. The people that surround Rhi are so much fun, and I love that each character has their own arc. The townspeople band together to help their own, something you rarely see nowadays, and they really feel like a family of sorts.

The ghost in our story is Kip Daniels, an actor who passed away in a freak accident during the opening night of his production of 'Hamlet'. Kip has been haunting the Hamlet Majestic for decades, and it's only when Rhi arrives that he's able to forge a connection with someone besides himself. Though, let's be honest, the guy is so arrogant and narcissistic that he probably liked being alone with himself. ;)

Crystal, the town psychic, is simply fantastic. She's larger than life, full of cheeky one-liners, and a much better person than me for how she handled certain situations.

There’s a fun love triangle between the town realtor, Annie, and two brothers, Jake & Sam. She has been giving those boys the run-around for years, and it’s comical to watch how it all pans out. It was great getting a bit of the always saucy Taran Dee, Rhi’s brother, and also the love interest in Trouble Brewing. If you haven’t checked that one out yet, I highly recommend it.

My favorites characters in this novel are definitely T & F. I hope they make an appearance in a future book, as our time with them was wayyyy too short.

Rhi’s mom, Brigid, is a horrid bitty, but also an amusing one. Her 'condition' and the circumstances are interesting, and I’d be curious to hear more about Lugh and Brigid Dee's shenanigans.

One thing about this fantastic author’s books – they totally make me wish I was a witch!

Jane Tara consistently delivers a lively read full of snappy dialogue and engaging characters. There's always an uplifting message, and her books just make you feel good. Quite a switcheroo - you go in thinking it'll be just a fun paranormal story, and you come out feeling like you've learned something.

Ps – Love Love Love that there's a character named 'Candace' who is the head of the women's ministry at the Hamlet Evangelical Church. Muahaha ;)
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Wonderful feisty off-beat characters. 4 August 2014

Jane Tara just gets better and better.
This quirky novel is an exquisite blend of theatre and romance, with some truly magnificent witches in the lead roles. I kept wishing these feisty off-beat characters were my friends 'irl'. The story moves along at a good pace, with no flat spots at all: perfect relaxation for a lazy Sunday. I also loved the location descriptions…I really felt I was there.
All in all, this was a thoroughly enjoyable read.
PS. I would love to see Tara's 'Shakespeare Sisters' novels as films.

Every time I read one of Jane Tara's books I take away at least one life lesson, I have a few laughs and even shed the odd tear or two. This was another fun read.

Another great read from Jane Tara. Great mix if fun, sex, melancholy and magic. Grab a glass if wine and enjoy the warm characters and warm hearted writing.

Much like Jane Tara's other books, this is filled with magic, outstanding characters that are easily loved and quirky, fun writing. I love Jane's stories for their ability to take you away from daily life and make you feel as if you are somewhere else. I also love her sassy writing full of quips that make you giggle.

What made me love Hamlet's Ghost was not just the cast of unique and varied characters, but the setting. The connections between the name of the town and the goings on inside the theatre were brilliant and kept me turning pages. I loved the way she tied the past and familiar characters into this novel but still managed to make it feel new. This could easily be read as a standalone novel even without the primer of the previous books.

My favourite character was Crystal. She's strong and independent and full of life and it affects the characters around her. I'd love to know even more about her story. This was a book that I was sorry to see go and it will be difficult to find something else to read after this--but this is the price you pay for reading Jane's work.

If you are tired of reading books where the female characters are all perfect down to the last fake nail, then this is for you. This author values differences between her characters and they are not all cookie cutter shapes that have been done before. She uses real women of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds to fill her pages. I love that.

The love story(ies) are charming and the romance scenes mild enough for those who don't want to jump into the deep end too soon. You get a sense of each character's personality and that of their match before they end up together and things don't always go exactly as one would expect. Overall I thought this was one of the most delightful reads of the year.

If you like romantic stories with lots of twists and plenty of magic, you can't go wrong here. Definitely a book that deserves recommendation.
