This is a nice enough book, but not really my kind of thing. I like a book to have some level of plausibility in it and this one really didn't. I think if you can suspend belief (not necessarily with regard to ghosts, but in the things that they do) and you enjoy a nicely written young adult book then you'll probably enjoy it. It took me a little while to get into it, but once I did I found it an easy read.
I think Rhiannon Lassiter is a good writer, and she's obviously got a vivid imagination. I would read another book by her, but wouldn't necessarily rush to do so.
The pace is fast forward from the first page on and you don't get a single moment to catch your breath. The compelling narrative, split between Eva Chance and Kyle and Kyra Stratton, keeps you glued to the book until you finally know what really happened to Eva.
Tension, suspense and terror hold steady throughout the entire book and have you puzzling over the murderer until the last chapter.
The ghostly encounters, the murder mystery elements and the traditional 'red herrings' all add to the pleasure of this read but regular murder readers will probably see the twists coming - overall an engaging heroine and enough thrills and spills for any teenage mystery fan.
