    Do you believe in ghosts?Even if you don't, you'll believe in this story. This is the best kind of book. Because it's about love, a love that waits, that saves, that sacrifices.All Jack ever wanted was to matter, to be somebody, a Hollywood star, just like James Dean. Jack is young and beautiful, selling his body to the first hot-shot producer who makes him an empty promise. In the 50s, being queer can get you killed, even in the city of angels. When Jack's hopes run empty, he dreams of a man wi [...]

    “As long as you’re alive, you can do things, change things. But that stops the minute your heart stops beating.”“Motel.Pool.” is a great story about love and life. It’s a story about enjoying life, appreciated it and appreciate what you have.The story starts with Jack, a young man who wants to be a Hollywood star in the 50s. He is gay, practically prostitutes himself because he has hopes and dreams. He dreams to be famous and have money and to be with someone who loves him. He only w [...]

    Utterly depressing and inspiring, at the same time? It's a strange paradox. I found the beginning slow, it started where I didn't expect. It was actually an extended prologue lasting approximately 10% of the book and I felt confused because I kept thinking where's the story I thought. That and Hollywood machine stories that chew and spit out people as a LA local really don't appeal to me, at all. So, that was a depressing backstory.The road trip aspect really appealed to me. I love the dissoluti [...]

    I just reread this today during a long trip home from the east coast. Love it just as much, if not more, than the first time I read it. ---------Orig Review 27 Aug 2015-------​I don't believe in ghosts. But as my friend Dani said in her review, I do believe in this story. Even after reading some of my friends reviews of this book, Motel. Pool. was still somewhat unexpected. It's a ghost story, but it is so much more than that and I fucking loved it.​Jack Dayton left Omaha when he was about 2 [...]

    inconsistently compellingok a few pages to get warmed-up, and until that point the prose didn't really agree with me. i found it really stiff and lacking in vibrancyen it got a lot smoother and richeren the little rinky-dink annoyances started pecking me to death, and i gave upey're petty, and i don't expect them to trouble anyone else but me, so i'll spoiler-tag them, to allow you to skip my whining if you prefer:(view spoiler)[seriously, how many times does the MC have to mention things like g [...]

    4.25 May have made my eyes juicy StarsI wish I could just say READ THIS! and that would be sufficient, but I don’t want to short change this book nor Ms. Fielding, so let me tell you why I liked it so much.Tag is aimless and lost, drifting in the ennui. There’s nothing really wrong per se, but there’s nothing really right either.But instead the numbness only spread, as if someone had given his soul a shot of novocaine.He sets off on the open road, no goal, no real destination and finds him [...]

    Life has an expiration date, and so do the memories we have of others. I don't try to kid myself and think I'll be remembered in two hundred years. I'll (hopefully) live a long life, might have children, and possibly grandchildren as well. Definitely nieces and nephews. Would they mourn my eventual passing? Perhaps. But eventually, I'll be forgotten. It's a fact of life, and only a few are able to escape this inevitability. It's just a matter of whether we care or not.But for Jack Dayton, that's [...]

    First off, I love Kim Fielding andis one of my absolute fav books ever! And while I loved this one, it didn’t get to me like that one did. Perhaps my expectations were to high. Having gotten that out of the way, i will say I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The plot was quite interesting and I must say besides being a Kim Fielding book, that alone drew me into reading it.The first part of this book is about Jack Dayton, set in the mid-1950’s he is trying to make it in Hollywood. He has dreams a [...]

    For a few hours, he’d felt almost alive again. He could nearly feel his heart beating. And he had a friend. If Jack spent eternity alone in the desert, he’d have this time to treasure. He’d have a few precious memories to take out and admire over and over, like a dragon gloating over his gold.But Tag was obviously sad. He was probably very tired…But it was more than that. Tag had been sad since Jack had first seen him, as Tag parked his car by the deserted road and settled in to sleep. H [...]

    Jack Dayton died in a motel pool in the 1950's, tangled up with the drugs he'd taken and the failure of his plans to become a movie star. Sixty years later Tag Manning pulls into the parking lot of the abandoned and demolished motel for a nap, and when he drives away, Jack is riding shotgun. This is a very pragmatic ghost story. The characters' reactions feel pretty real, but they don't go for the deep questions. Jack's a ghost because he is, and can do things because that's how it works. It mak [...]

    What a terrific novel this is. It isn't your average ghost story. It's too happy and sweet and hopeful for that. Jack and Tag are made for each other, even if one is dead and the other's alive. With some incredibly creative plotting which doesn't seem forced in the least and somehow made perfect sense, the author managed to give Jack and Tag a happily-ever-after anyway, and I really loved that. There's nothing better than seeing two damaged people come together and find love and by working toget [...]

    I might be a little bias with my rating because I love ghost stories and I'm a Kim Fielding fanboy. The story was a bit slow at the beginning but the ending had me weeping. Please let there be sequel, I would love to read more of Tag and Jack's adventures.4.5 stars!

    This was so good. I was hesitant for the longest time, now I'm kicking myself. I was like a hot mess around 80% and I was cursing my way thru ( I am not one for tears in my stories ) But then about 90% just YES!!!! It's on my favorites shelf and I may even do a re read one day I loved it that much!

    4.25 starsDo you believe in ghosts?Hailing from arguably one of the most haunted parts of the country, I have been around "ghost stories" my whole life. And I can rattle off at least five family members or friends who've had a "sighting." I'm open-minded enough to believe in the existence of something.So, you see, my GR friend, Dani, has been after me to read Kim Fielding for a while now. And when I asked her what I should read, THIS is what popped out of her mouth (or her keyboard).So I read th [...]

    I will say this Kim Fielding sure knows how to write different genres and topics. She writes about werewolves, contemporary, mix of fantasy romance, even alternate history -- and this, she brings Road Trip. With Ghost. My I admit that I have soft heart for screwed-up characters (not necessarily those being abused or suffering from external torture). Simply someone who, well, emotionally messy. The two men in Motel. Pool are examples of that. Jack wanted to be famous -- he probably taken a short [...]

    4.5 Stars! I really enjoyed this book. Thanks Dani for recommending it because it’s not one I would have picked out on my own. I don’t normally read paranormal so I likely would have overlooked this. It was a very sweet story, not really what I was expecting. I loved Jack from the very beginning. He’s from Omaha. I'm from Omaha. Case closed. I enjoyed his story set in the 50s. James Dean, pay phones, Brylcreem, everyone smoking like chimneys. He left Nebraska with his sights set on Hollywo [...]

    Roadtrip with a ghost. The story unfurls slowly like a morning glory opening to the sun. I found it to be pretty restrained throughout but ending up weeping close to the end. I admit I was a bit unsure of this one because it seemed like I was setting myself up for a sad read but it tugged on my heartstrings without tearing my heart from my chest. One thing that I questioned. (view spoiler)[Just how everyone was so accepting of ghosts especially the last reveal. (hide spoiler)]

    This was recommended to me ages ago - thanks CC - and has been sat on my kindle along with a billion other books I want to read. I'm glad I finally got to it though. This was so not your average ghost story. It was clever and sad and funny. It(view spoiler)[ had an HEA (hide spoiler)] but left me a tad melancholy despite that. It made me think. It made me want to know more about all these characters.Hmm, it's taken me a while to catch on, but I'm definitely on the Kim Fielding fangirl train now! [...]

    4.5 Stars(Gawd, my feelz are taking one hell of a beating this week!)Okay, so there are quite a few books that are set in Las Vegas and they do a great job of painting my town as fun, quirky, interesting, sexy, etc. - but most of the time the setting descriptions seem kind of airbrushed. They are how a visitor would see this city, not necessarily how a resident does.This book? OMG it's got to be the most accurate representation of its seedy underbelly. The ugly parts we steer the tourists away f [...]

    Omg, what a lovely story! Depressed Tag finds his love in ghost Jack.I cried at the sad moments, but in the end I was so happy for them.Totally loved it! :)4,5 stars

    2.5/5Interesting concept, but the book fell mostly flat for me. To this type of story compelling characters are key, but these particular characters failed to grasp my attention.

    Paranormal stories occasionally frustrate me. I mean, throw me in an alternate universe, give me shape shifters, sci-fi, etc and I’ll buy-in. For some reason though, ghosts are a whole other ball park. I guess it’s that I need them to be solid and, ummable to perform tasks…and things. The whole ghost/human relationship? Pft. Not. For. Me.What? Oh, look. It’s Kim Fielding with a ghost story. Forget everything I just wrote. I had to read this, no questions. :DJack’s the ghost, Tag a huma [...]

    My first ever ghost romance! And it wasn't creepy at all.Which is a good thing, because the only ghost I've ever liked is Casper.Possible spoilers below!Nearly sixty years ago, aspiring actor Jack Dayton drowned in a motel. In the present time, after breaking up with his boyfriend and quitting his job, Tag Manning is on his way to Las Vegas when he happens to take a rest at the site of the former motel. When he gets back on the road in the morning, he has an unexpected travel buddy in the form o [...]

    It’s the 50’s and Jack Dayton is aspiring to emulate James Dean’s success. A sleazy director gave him empty promises after letting him use his body. A series of poor decisions found Jack drowning in the pool of a cheap motel off Route 66.Fast forward to sixty years – Tag Manning is losing the will to live, feeling hopeless and directionless until he stopped at a deserted town where he found a desecrated motel with a pool. Resuming his journey, Tag didn’t expect to find a ghost hitchhik [...]

    A ghost love story is a new one for me, and not my usual kind of read, but as ever, Kim Fielding delivers a wonderful, character-driven story. As with Rattlesnake, this is a bit on the insta-love side but it's so adeptly written and the characters given such depth that it didn't bother it. She made me believe it, which is made even more surreal because Jack is a fricking ghost!I'm also not usually one to go in for angsty stories, but I love angst when it's done well and it has meaning beyond jus [...]

    So glad I didn't give up. Honestly, 7% in I didn't think I could do it but I persevered. I truly loved the story. The writing was beautiful, the growth, the lessons. I couldn't put it down. I didn't like the end but the book as a whole carried itself. Thank you to Dani for the push and for Mish and Amy reading with me. Read.

    This book combines some of my favorite things: motels, pools, road trips, ghost towns, and Las Vegas. I enjoyed the way it was written, although it was a little dull at times. It was also a little weird and cheesy. I did get a bit misty-eyed at the end. I wish there had been some resolution to a couple of storylines, but overall this was pretty satisfying.
