The Deja Vu House Reviews
This is a romantic novel with a paranormal thread going through it full of detailed descriptions. Pam is living in the house she grew up in, in the town she has lived for most of her life. Vic has moved away - he was a few classes above her in high school. Somehow their paths cross once again and now neither of them wants to say goodbye this time. They start to follow their dreams. StorylineWhen Pam is scrolling on the internet she finds a Twitter account of a man she had a secret crush on as a young girl. He, Vic, was the elder brother of her best friend Marcie. Eager as Pam is to find out if the man she sees is the Vic of her memories, she searches and finds him on Facebook. Only when her fluttering heart is able to calm down a bit is she ready to send him a message, to which he responds the same night. She invites him to stay over for the reunion weekend - a weekend in which Pam and Vic learn to know each other in the most intimate way. What follows is a love affair, passionate and full of promises for a future together. When Vic wants to show Pam a house he is considering buying something unexpected happens as Pam suddenly experiences flashbacks from a past lifetime. The story that we, the readers, witness developing before our eyes is not your typical love story and it becomes even more surreal when Pam meets house owner Olga.My ThoughtsA romance, that is how Doug Simpson describes 'The Déjà Vu House' and it is a romantic tale. The romance is doubled when Pam arrives at the house Vic wants to buy and finds out something about herself she had never known nor dreamed of before. I expected Pam to be a shy little countrywoman, but she was pleasantly open in what she wants and how to get it (if you think this could have a double meaning - you are right). She is not an insecure wallflower who has waited for the love of her life, but a confident young woman not afraid to follow her heart and listen to her feelings. For me, there was too much detail in the story and had that been omitted, it would have made room for exploring further the subject of flashbacks to "past lifetimes" as mentioned in the dedication of the book. Having said that, the book was an easy read and had a sweet and romantic touch.Read the review on my website: https://www.bitsaboutbooks.net/the-de...
This book is not just the story of life but the story of life after life after life. When Pam Richardson finds an old friend on line, she immediately messages Vic Nesterenko and the two get together. Pan and Vic find a love that was lost as they went their separate ways in life. They find something else interesting when Vic finds a house that he wants to buy and share with Pam. The deja-vu Pam feels will take readers into the teachings of Edgar Cayce and the author does a great job putting Cayce's beliefs into an interesting life story. I loved the characters and find the author has a way of bringing readers into the story that makes this book a must have read.
A story with a dearly needed lessonCan there be a story without conflict? Yes, and Doug Simpson proves it in his quietly uplifting novel, The Déjà vu House. It’s the simple story of a man and a woman who rekindle an old high-school romance, fall in love. They marry and build a life together. Vic and Pam find their dream home, a century-old farm house on the edge of a suburban Midwestern town, which is inhabited by a woman named Olga.On seeing the house for the first time, Pam feels a shock: “I recognize this house,” she says. She walks around the outside of the house, pointing to windows and identifying which rooms they belong to, without mistake.As it turns out, Pam is the reincarnation of the first woman to live in the Déjà vu house, and Olga, the woman who currently owns it, who inherited it from her parents, is the granddaughter of Emily Croft. Emily was reincarnated as Pam Richardson.And share a shock of recognition between Pam and Olga, they become close instantly. Vic and Pam buy the house and Olga remains living in it with them.What ensues is the story of how three people, linked in a very unusual way, make a life together. They’re all happy. There is no conflict, no mystery to solve, no deep dark secrets. It breaks all the rules of contemporary literature, but it’s a story clearly and simply told, and uplifting in its honesty. It has a message that is dearly needed today: we can be happy.
I love the way the author started the story, by having the main character debating with herself about starting up an online conversation with somebody from her past whom she came across on a social media network. The initial message finally sent led to several personal letters between Pam and Vic which were fun to read; I thought they were a great way to learn about the two characters' backgrounds and get into the fun story.During one of the correspondences, Pam informed Vic about an upcoming high school reunion and invited him to stay in her guest room since she still lived in the same town as she did as a teen, and he did not. Her excuse was for him to save on hotel fees, but the reader gets a sense that there is more to it. Pam's friends are no fools either. The romance that follows comes as no surprise, which isn't to say that the story itself is predictable. The reader is still left wondering what will happen, especially after Pam experiences a Deja Vu moment while visiting an old farmhouse. Everything becomes quite intriguing from this point on, and I must applause the author for his creative mind and originality.I personally really enjoyed this interesting story. It was well written and had great dialogues. I had a hard time putting the book down! Every chapter was short, so it was easy to say "oh just one more" and continue reading a few additional captivating chapters.
