As I read the first six chapters it was hard to keep up. It was like being in a room with lots of people talking at the same time, too much. Around chapter seven, I felt that it was uplifting into a story that was holding my attention and as she talked more about a character she made them seem more real. Mrs. Spinella does an excellent job of bring Aubrey's gift out. I loved the moments of Aubrey and her grandmother. I also thought that the way Aubrey and Levi worked together as investigating news reporters provided us with two compelling characters, both with their own issues. Mrs Spinella found a way to achieve a budding romance, after she released both from other lovers! I would of loved to have a little bit more of Aubrey using her gift to help a few more people. All in all this book is well worth the read.
All Aubrey Ellis wants is a normal life, one that doesn’t include desperate pleas from the dead. Her remarkable gift may help others rest in peace, but it also made for an unsettling childhood and destroyed her marriage. Finally content as the real estate writer for a local newspaper, Aubrey keeps her extraordinary ability hidden—until she is unexpectedly assigned the story of a decades-old murder.
Rocked by the discovery of a young woman’s skeletal remains, the New England town of Surrey wants answers. Hard-nosed investigative reporter Levi St John is determined to get them. Aubrey has no choice but to get involved, even at the terrifying risk of stirring spirits connected to a dead woman’s demise and piquing her new reporting partner’s suspicions.
As Aubrey and Levi delve further into the mystery, secrets are revealed and passion ignites. It seems that Aubrey’s ghost gifts are poised to deliver everything but a normal life.
