Winner of the 2014 YARWA Rosemary Award for Excellence in New Adult Fiction.


The book was mysterious right from the start. In the beginning, the spookiness starts with a stalled vehicle surrounded by an eerie setting. Then, Reese finds out what she's really in for. It wasn't going to be a quick visit. The dual POV from Colton and Reese made the book more interesting.
The book really got good once the ghosts became involved.The scene at Reese's aunts shop grabbed my interest and kept me interested. Between that and the budding friendship of Reese and Colton's sister, I found myself wanting to solve the bevy of mysteries.

The one thing that dissapointed me, was the lack of romance. There was good chemistry going on between Colton and Reese. However, it wasn't advancing very far. It kind of frustrated me. I craved a little more from the couple.

Then there was the ball. It really opened the story up and finally, we got some resolution. I was sad the end came so quickly after that, but it's understanding. This book was really setting up the plot for the sequel. 
Overall, this book had a good mystery. This story gets four glittery stars for it's interesting plot.

About the Author:

D’Ann Burrow once told her preschool teacher she wanted to be a witch when she grew up. That simple comment signaled the start of a life-long fondness of things that go bump in the night. As she grew older, she could most often be found with her nose buried in a book, and she was especially fond of the Nancy Drew series as well as anything by Christopher Pike or Stephen King.  Occasionally she’d take a trip to the world of the classics where The Scarlet Pimpernel and A Little Princess reigned among her favorites.  She’s lost count of the times she’s read Little Women.

Today, D’Ann enjoys the world of Supernatural, stories about guys with fangs, and she’s seldom met a disaster film she hasn’t liked.  When she grows up, she’d like to work at the Haunted Mansion. Until then, watching Ghost Hunters will have to count as research.

D’Ann writes about secrets people keep.  Even the bravest heroine or a guy with a heart of gold has a few skeletons in the closet they’d rather not share with the world. When those secrets get out, things get interesting.

A Texas native, she knows making great guacamole is an art form. As a theater mom, she’ll happily chat about Broadway musicals by the hour.  Molly and Lizzie, the family furry ones, are frequent stars of her Instagram account.
