Rayne can't wait to start her summer job at a remote country mansion, far from the crowded, noisy
Can Rayne figure out why she's so freaked -- before she becomes a ghost story herself?
Maybe I’m converting to the dark side or maybe this book was really just that great? I usually don’t like scary books or books I don’t find real to life but this one was great! The characters were each well developed and I could feel a strong emotional connection to them. It was as if they were real, living and breathing people, not a work of fiction.
The plot was superb and not one that was easily predictable. Throughout the whole thing I was left guessing what was to come. It wasn’t any of my original predictions, that’s for sure. The setting added to the fantastic plot. I felt like I was there, it sent shivers down my spine. The cover was lacking in many ways but I guess it was alright. Average at best. I think they could have portrayed the story with a different one much better.
As for the ending, delicious! I thought it was perfect and unexpected.
So what do I have to say? “Lock your doors, turn on the lights. This book will have you shivering in your seat.”
