    One thought on “In the Blue Hour”

    1. This was a good story, particularly good for an October night. Steeped in mystery and sadness, and yet approachable and easy to read. Elise has just lost her husband and is sure he's trying to tell her something. Or maybe it's just her call of help from the depths of her grief. Either way, she can't suppress the call and must follow it and find it's source. The story has many foreboding, mysterious elements of magical realism, made stronger by the presence of many Native American rituals and tra [...]

    2. A dream comes true and Elise Brook’s husband dies. She feels she missed the signs and may have been able to prevent his death. Her husband was Native American and she feels him all around her and she feels he may be trying to communicate with her. As she investigates his death she finds along the way a family and a heritage. Great read. I would like to thank the Publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this ARC.

    3. I won this from the publisher in a giveaway. What was most extraordinary about this particular win is that there was only one copy being given away. This makes it particularly unfortunate that I'm always behind on reviewing my giveaway books. Mine is necessarily the only review that Lake Union and Elizabeth Hall will get from doing this particular giveaway in 2017. I still have two more 2017 GR giveaway books that I've won to read and review. I wanted to read this book because I'm interested i [...]

From what the psychic has told her she goes on a journey east to find out what her husband may be telling her. She feels her husband's [...]

    5. 4.5 Stars!I love a great ghost story, and this was probably one of the best I have read. This one had a little twist, mixing in the American Indian history and beliefs. That was what really made this book so interesting.The character development was very good. I really loved Elise I got into her character right away and felt her personality shine through.I was never too sure about Tom, aka - Mr. Science/geek techy guy. He was a great character, done to perfection. I just wasn't too sure how I fe [...]

    6. In the Blue Hour was an interesting book and different from what I have read lately. I wouldn't really classify it as a ghost story. It's more of a mystical journey for widow trying to find her own way out of her grief. Elise lost her husband in a car accident 7months before. She beings to sense someone around her and wonders if he is trying to tell her something. She meets Celestina, a trot card reader, who tells her a man with dark eyes will help her and take her on a journey. Tom Dugan is run [...]

    7.

During this hour, shadows cascade in the horizon - perhaps a departed loved one coming to visit? Elise Brook's has a dream of a terrible accident; she believes it is a vision of her own death. Little does Elise know, the dream is actually a premonition of her husband's impending death.This book [...]

    8. Elise's husband dies after she has a dream that she believes was a vision of the event. Afterwards the books tells of all the ways she tries to get closure in the passing of her husband. She meets a lot of interesting characters on the way. This story gives a new meaning to "Everything happens for a reason". It was a great story chocked full of Native American history and lore. I loved the visuals of the landscape both in New Mexico and Tennessee. A really great read. I won this book from a give [...]

    9. The loss of a loved one is hard and it feels like they never really leave. That feeling lives where we can barely see it, in the blue hour.When Elise Brooks has a dream about a car accident, she doesn’t think much of it, after all it is just a dream. Then a few weeks later, her husband is killed just like her dream. She blames herself feeling that she missed the signs and could have somehow prevented his death. Now she feels his spirit following her in the form of a raven. There are forces at [...]

    10. Sometimes there are books you need a little more time to process after reading them. This is one of those books for me.Its different from what I usually read.I did enjoy learning about Native American's and their culture and folklore.It took quite a bit to really grasp what I liked and didn't like about this book. It was an enjoyable read, but the pacing was terribly slow. Elise's journey to find out what her husband was trying to tell her just took way too long for me, though I did enjoy her jo [...]

    11. “The hair on the back of her neck went up, a feeling as if she were being watched. From the depths of the porch up ahead, the tinkling of chimes filled the air. Elise stopped and turned slowly. Her eyes scanned the black silhouettes of the trees surrounding her.” In The Blue HourIn IN THE BLUE HOUR (Lake Union Publishing), by Elizabeth Hall, Elise is suffering intense grief after the death of her husband. She believes she’s responsible, because she saw the car accident in her dreams and di [...]

    12. GNAB I received a free electronic copy of this novel from Netgalley, Elizabeth Hall, and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Thanks for sharing your hard work with me!I ask to review this book because it is centered for the most parts in my New Mexico - those little communities scattered across our beautiful mountains inhabited by fiercely independent people with great heart. Our protagonists fit that mold in unique and surprising ways - a good story, very well told. And that [...]

    13. It took me a while to read the book because Elise Brooks' grief about the death of her husband is portrayed so accurately (I am a widow) that I would put the book down and continue another day due to my memories of the time following my husband's death.Once she embarks on her trip, things pick up and I read the book in a few days.All the background information about Native American beliefs and customs is fascinating. I very much enjoyed the book and its emphasis on the importance of friends and [...]

    14. DNF @ 38%. It pains me to give up on this book, but the pacing is so slow that it's not holding my attention. It's taken me over a week to get to the 38% point. I enjoyed the Native American elements and Celestina's character, but other than that - meh. Just not for me. Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for the opportunity to read this book.

    15. This was w a y too long and drawn out! Except for the last few pages the book was boring – the widow went through every psychic manner to try and find the spirit of her dead husband --- all she had to do was follow her instinct and heart.

    16. Read and enjoyed,My rating was four . at first thought it was love gone story. It wasn't and went along and got hooked Ending not what I thought it would be but a entertaining read all the way.

    17. I truly enjoyed this story. Elizabeth Hall weaves a tale full of fantastic imagery. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via the First-reads program.

    18. I was intrigued to learn about Native American culture, folklore and the world of psychics and mediums. In The Blue Hour Elise is suffering intense grief after the death of her husband. She believes she is responsible, because she saw the car accident in her dreams and did not tell Michael in advance. Elise embraces both, Native American wisdom she grew up with and the world of psychics and seers. She believes his spirit may be with her in the form of a raven.There are forces at work beyond her [...]

    19. I liked "Miramont's Ghost" but I loved this one. It is heartbreaking but hopeful, poignant yet filled with promise and even in the midst of grief Elise finds that life can overcome. The characterizations are very good, especially Elise, the main character, the plot is interesting and there are a few twists and turns and bumps to keep the pages turning along the way. Hall's fascination with spirits and ghosts continues to inform her storytelling, but she does it well - with heart and a passion to [...]

    20. ReviewLast updated on 08 May 2017I was a skeptical when I started the book as it focuses on the supernatural and I am a skeptic. But, the story was intriguing, the writing good and I kept on going. And, it got better and better. I won't say it converted me into being a believer in the supernatural but I was fascinated to read more and learn more about 'powers beyond'. Putting aside that, it is a wonderful story about a middle-age woman finding herself again after the sudden death of her husband. [...]

    21. The story that almost was. Characters were well developed. The ride along the plot was sound and interesting. A little twist at the end and the story got summed up with a saccharin-like feel as if I'd watched a Lifetime movie. Disappointing because the story took place in the area where I live. Could have been so much more if the ending had been orchestrated as well as the rest of the book!

    22. The Blue Hour is "the time when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. The best time to speak to the spirits of the departed". Elise is a grieving fifty year old widow whose Native American husband died in a tragic accident. An accident Elise dreamt about before his death. Elise is trying to move on with her life but she cannot shake her depression or the feeling that her dead husband is trying to send her a message. This is a story infused with Native American folklore, psychic prediction [...]

    23. Family tiesA great story of strong family ties. Elise and her mom move back to New Mexico after her father dies. After her mom dies soon after she makes her life, gets married. After her husband dies she feels a strong calling, bring her cross country back home.

    24. Delightfully differentEntertaining and unpredictable. This is one of those books that I couldn't wait to get back to. Hard to believe this is only the authors second book. Cannot wait to see more from her.

    25. Easy enjoymentI gave this book four stars because I was hoping for a different ending. However, the ending is exactly as it should be. I don't know why I was drawn to the book in the first placeybe I had a feelingabout it!

    26. When I opened The Blue Hour, I was immediately pulled into the prologue by the author's beautiful prose and it continued throughout the book. I love it when an author can transport me to a place with their vivid descriptions and Elizabeth Hall took me through New Mexico and on a road trip to Tennessee all within the pages of the book. The sights, sounds and smells she describes all set the mood of this mysterious story, steeped in Native American folklore and magic. Elise, the main character, fu [...]

    27. Elise Brooks had a dream about a car accident. The road was snowy, the car was hers, but in the dream she couldn't see the driver.

And though she never believed before, she recognizes that even those around her are open to the idea. As time goes by, she begins to believe her husband might be trying to tell her som [...]

Michael, Elise’s husband, was a Native American wood carver whose work was in high demand, more especially since his death. His last piece was a beautifully detailed carving of a raven.And so when a ra [...]
