I love paranormal romances and Ms. Barmann struck gold with this one. I enjoyed it so much I can actually see this story being made into a blockbuster movie

A richly complex paranormal with ghosts, haunting spirits, good versus evil conflicts, and mystical connotations, THE LOST ARE NEVER FAR is a delightful one-sitting read which riveted this reviewer's attention.

The Lost Are Never Far by Stephanie Barmann was easily the best ghost hunter story I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading! If you’re looking for a great romance with a paranormal element thrown in, you’ve definitely got the right book. It seemed to be over way too soon and had me wishing it would last forever!

Sarah is on her way back to San Francisco for the first time in over forty years. On the way her mind begins to retrace the steps of her youth, beginning when she was just seventeen. She is deeply in love with Steven who has been her childhood friend ever since she could remember. Their love is so strong she knows it was meant to be. They truly are soul mates. Sarah is broken hearted when Steven is killed in Vietnam. She loses her lust for life, and begins drowning in her own sorrow. She becomes desperate to escape the memories of him that are all around her, the lake where they made love, the streets they walked down hand in hand. Her sadness causes her to flee, finding a refuge of sorts in her brothers home in San Francisco. There she discovers other parts of herself; but still cannot escape his memory. She sees him in her mind, and speaks to him in her dreams, visions that are so real she is unsure whether they are visions at all, or if they are in fact reality. In San Francisco she meets Paul, a man who is the complete opposite of Steven. Paul is a free spirit who shows her love is possible again, however, complications arise when his brother Adam moves to California. He is the mirror image of what Sarah had lost. Everything about him takes her back to simpler times when they were still just kids, and not yet scarred by the weight of the world. She fights her feelings; not knowing if it is Adam she is attracted too, or the memory of Steven she sees in him. She bounces between the two before finally figuring out who it is that loves her the way Steven would have, the one who her heart truly belongs to. In the end Sara does finally find the ultimate love and happiness that Steven helped lead her to. She discovers that soul mates can never be separated forever; because their hearts and souls are bonded together for eternity.

41/2 out of 5 pixies

I thought Paul a weak, unhealthy relationship, until Ms. Barmann redeems him in a spectacular manner. Adam surprised me, and I think will surprise most readers, with the way his character develops. Once I got into this book, I couldn’t stop reading. I carried it everywhere with me, and read every moment I could.

Mara had no idea that fate had brought her to the town of Tethrake Ekening and not her job. She was meant to be there, to fulfill the curse a witch had put on the Nottoway river centuries before her birth. The witch knew Mara long before she was born and knew what her destiny had in store for her.

            Mara was just getting over a break up with her cheating ex William when she comes to the small house she has rented. Mara meets Jason, the man who owns the house and feels a strong connection with him. Mara didn’t have a clue Jason wasn’t what he appeared to be. How could she have known the man who seemed so real, so alive was in fact a ghost? Still she can’t fight the feelings she has for him. It’s as if they were meant to be and she isn’t about to pass up the chance at love even if he is dead.

            Mara soon comes to find out Jason’s fate will bring her to meet her own. His death a decade before was the start of her destiny. The horrible vision of Mara the witch had long ago was a prophecy Mara couldn’t avoid, yet one that brings her love and happiness that lasts forever.
