My rating: 5 of 5 gargoyles
This book had everything that I felt was missing from the first book in the series. The ending, while still a bit abrupt, had much more of a resolution feel to it AND it had a couple of pages post climactic end to wind down. I didn’t feel dumped off a cliff.
Story – it was great. Peyton’s really got her work cut out for her, sharing her body with a ghost while making googly eyes at her general contractor (who doesn’t initially know she’s got a companion with her in her head, which makes for some….interesting conversations).
Romance – Yup, it’s there, both from Drake (the ghost) and Ryan. Of course you know things can’t go forward with Drake, but I found myself actually hoping she could find a way. Of course, I like her with Ryan too.
There was some great information/story revolving around voodoo and I liked the inclusion of Baron Samedi as an actual character in the book. He’s creepy, to say the least. I definitely don’t trust the voodoo priestess that’s introduced and I suspect will have a place in future books.
So, definitely, read this book. You don’t ‘have’ to have read the first, but it will REALLY help you understand how Peyton got herself saddled with a ghostly passenger.
So glad I read this despite not caring for the end of the first book.
