Sixteen-year-old Riley Williams has been able to see ghosts since the car crash that took her mother's life and shattered her family. Guilt-ridden over the belief that she's somehow responsible for her mom's death, Riley is desperate to see her mother's elusive spirit to gain her forgiveness.
When her father moves the family to Scotland so they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn't get worse––that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into friendship, and soon Riley's falling hard for Ian.
Riley believes her gift could help Ian end the curse that has kept him tied to the land for centuries, but that would mean letting him go forever and she's not sure she is strong enough to do that. As if her life wasn't complicated enough, the malevolent spirit of the woman who killed Ian returns and she'll stop at nothing to keep Riley from helping Ian find eternal peace.
Loved this book from the start. Riley and her family move to Scotland after her fathers work takes them there. Riley is sixteen and has had a difficult time dealing with her mothers death. Riley and her mom where in a car accident where her mother was killed and Riley was saved . She has lived with the guilt all this time she thinks she is the reason her mom died she thinks that she is what caused the accident. After the car accident Riley started seeing ghosts. After her move to Scotland she thought she would have a fresh start. Little did she know that wasnt going to be the case. Her father had bought a old inn and in the back yard was a Old castle. After being in the house for only a few moments she see a ghost. She doesnt say anything due to she doesn't want her father and brother thinking she is crazy and putting her back on medication to fight the supposed visions of ghost.
Riley a girl who can see ghosts only to ignore them for now. She is also a cutter someone who cuts to release pain.
She ends up seeing a Ghost who used to live in the Castle. His Name is Ian this is one ghost she cant ignore with his good looks. She was stunned to see him and instantly fell in love with him. She finds he has a curse on him that is keeping him forever. Will she be able to break it. She runs into the ghost that is keeping Ian here Laria a slave girl who was hung for poisoning Ian. This girl is bad news when ever she is around she tries to take control of Riley's brother Shane. This book was a good read. I didn't put it done finished it in a day. Really if you like ghosts witches and spells then this is a good book for you. You will grow to like Riley however I thought it was slightly silly that she falls for Ian the ghost. I mean really if someone who couldn't see ghost walks in and sees her kissing thin air really?? That for me was just silly I guess if you can see ghost you can touch them like they are human and they can kiss you back and you can feel it? I however think for a 99cent book this is a good one. It was worth the time to read it. I do hope that they have a second book to this book it kind of was left hanging like there should be a second book. If you have not read this book yet I would say go buy it! Really it is just 99 cents and its good!
A good fast read and a good story line.
