Title: Oxford Whispers
Series: The Oxford Trilogy
Author: Marion Croslydon
Rating: 1 Shooting Star

Madison LeBon is dead set against the dead. 

Her fresh start at Oxford University is a brand new beginning. She finally has a chance to turn the page on her psychic powers and cumbersome voodoo heritage. Snakes, dolls, ghosts, and spirits: Farewell…

Not quite.

When the tragic lovers in a painting—the subject of her first history class—begin to haunt her, she must accept her gift before life imitates art. The lovers warn her against their own nemesis, a Puritan from the English Civil War. Unfortunately, said nemesis is now going all homicidal on Madison. 

College becomes more complicated when she falls hard for Rupert Vance, a troubled aristocrat and descendant of one of the characters in the painting. With the spirit of a murderer after her, Madison realizes that her own first love may also be doomed.

When I read the blurb for Oxford Whispers I thought it would be very good. I was very interested in the book. When I started reading it, I still thought it was pretty good. 

But then I just didn't enjoy it anymore. I got about 38% into the book, and I just couldn't finish it. I couldn't connect to the characters. And I hated how it seemed like Madison had powers but yet it was and wasn't a huge part of the book. 

I also didn't like how it kept going back to Peter's point of view, and also Sarah's point of view to me just bothered me, and made the story more confusing. It felt like that only added more drama that wasn't needed. I hated to give up on the book, but It just wasn't for me. I felt the idea of the story was good, but overall it just didn't meet what I like in a story. I won't be reading anymore in this series either.
