Book Review-A 3rd Time To Die-George A Bernstein

Wednesday, March 26, 2014


Do you believe in past lives? Do you ever have those deja vu moments when you know you have been somewhere or know someone but really can not figure out from where but the connection is definitely there-good or bad? Whether you do or don't believe this book will send chills up and down your spine as it takes you step by step through the past and present lives of two lovers destined to be together---eventually. Brutally murdered in their first two lifetimes the one person who witnessed both these atrocities is the only one who can save them.

This is an extremely well written, thought out and planned book from beginning to end-I can guarantee you will not be able to put it down! Strangely enough the author had to ask me why I had not reviewed the book yet. I had never received it! So I was resent the PDF version. Do you believe in coincidences? All I know is I definitely want to read more of the author's work.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Ashley Easton rescues a badly abused horse, deciding to return to show jumping, the passion of her youth. The animal gives unquestioned love, something lacking from her husband, Keith. But when Ashley begins to compete, she is terrified as the show course seemingly changes into an old forest and the jumps appear as real walls, fences and trees. Her thoughts spill through her head in elegant French. As she attacks the fences with an unfamiliar, fearless abandon, she begins winning every competition.

Craig Thornton, an avid horseman, happens upon Ashley’s first competition, entranced as he watches her jump her horse, Injun. Mystically drawn toward each other, it’s as if they knew the other…but from where? After several missed opportunities, they finally meet, becoming fast friends, their love of jumping horses a mutual bond.

Ashley seeks therapy to address a strange terror swamping her whenever she’s intimate. During hypnotic regression, she’s stunned to find herself in two apparent past lives, first in the 17th Century, on a fox hunt as the fearless French horsewoman who fills her head while jumping, and again, 150 years later in Philadelphia, a shipping tycoons daughter. Both times she is fulfilled by glorious romance, followed by the terror of their brutal murder while making fervid love in a forested glade!

The doctor says these are figments of her subconscious, but he’s shaken, knowing the truth. He realizes those were real past lives, and their killer may be lurking again, nearby.

Ashley and Craig soon discover more than friendship. As these two newly rediscovered lovers struggle to free themselves from broken marriages, others plan to fulfill a 300 year-old legacy of death

I do believe in coincidences, past lives and all that stuff, so I think I will be adding this to my reading list.

Sounds like a great read--my daughter might also like it--is it appropriate for teens?

MikiHope said...

ReviewsSheROTE Pamela R and anyone else interested. I would not hesitate to give it to a teen but it does have some gory scenes so I always suggest you read it first-only you know your teen! Right now it is only .99 (I am NOT an affiliate)!

I have read books based on past lives and seen shows on TV. I am always intrigued with the concept and never have enough to read about it. Sounds like a great candidate, this book, for me to read :)

So, does the person who witnessed them dying the first 2 times know it was the same person? I am intrigued by this book.
