**Disclaimer - I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

Summary:

A haunting mystery, romance in the vein of The Lovely Bones by New York Times bestselling author.

"The yard of this house is a graveyard of moments and everything left behind is a clue. And I am here to dig."

There's a ghost haunting 208 Water Street. She doesn't know who she was, or why she's still here. She does know that she is drawn to Maggie, the new girl in town, and her friends - beautiful, carefree Pauline and Liam, the boy who loves her.

But the ghost isn't all that's lurking in Gill Creek... Someone is killing young girls all across the county. Can the ghost keep these three friends safe? Or does she have another purpose?

Review:

I came across this book on Netgalley.  The cover immediately caught my attention and after reading the synopsis I had to read more.

As much as I did enjoy reading this book, it did disappoint me slightly.  I found the synopsis very misleading.  The murders and the mystery surrounding them, are more of a background story.  However, my love for the characters and their relationships did manage to keep me hooked.  The book in the end turns out to be a beautiful, tragic and heart breaking read.  I don't think this book is for everyone.   It is not about ghosts or murders, its a coming of age tale.  If you understand it, you will enjoy it.  To understand it you need to finish it.

Give this book a chance, read it until the end.  But have the kleenex to hand.  Your going to need them!

Congratulations to Jodi Lynn Anderson, may you have many future successes!
