I do love ghost stories, and with this book I was clearly under spell while reading it. A well-written paranormal novel by Tara Hudson. Okay so Amelia was a ghost who remembers nothing of her past life even how she died. And then, someone is dying in the river this time, Joshua crashed his car and only Amelia was there to saved him. Then, when no one could see her, Joshua did. They became friends, he helped Amelia remember everything, and Amelia fell in love with this handsome young man Joshua. I know, alive cute guy fell in love with a ghost girl.. And its awesome. Tara really pulled it off quite good. I loved the twist and turns of the story, there something more than Amelia's death, something that will make Joshua and Amelia apart, something evil was trying to claim her and someone is trying to make her fade away. Will they ever have a chance to be together at all? A very enjoyable, thrilling adventures and romance that I grew loving this novel. Recommended for paranormal lovers. There's also a sequel so watch out for it. By the way I got this via Netgalley so thank you and HarperCollins as well!
