Goodreads Summary:

Violet Willoughby doesn't believe in ghosts. But they believe in her. After spending years participating in her mother's elaborate ruse as a fraudulent medium, Violet is about as skeptical as they come in all matters supernatural. Now that she is being visited by a very persistent ghost, one who suffered a violent death, Violet can no longer ignore her unique ability. She must figure out what this ghost is trying to communicate, and quickly because the killer is still on the loose.
Afraid of ruining her chance to escape her mother's scheming through an advantageous marriage, Violet must keep her ability secret. The only person who can help her is Colin, a friend she's known since childhood, and whom she has grown to love. He understands the true Violet, but helping her on this path means they might never be together. Can Violet find a way to help this ghost without ruining her own chance at a future free of lies?

The only reason I picked up the book was because of the cover (shameful I know) I had no idea what the book was going to be like, and at the very start where it started out very dull and slow I was about to throw this book out of the window for picking it up (oky so not really but still) But after about 100 pages it was starting to go somewhere, and from that point on the book was amazing! Good job that I have to finish a book that I started, I can’t just leave it. A lot of books have this story that you either read or saw somewhere the story that is about to happen and there isn’t a lot they can’t do with it, and I was thinking this was going to be one of those books that you know what will happen as soon as you pick it up, but it actually surprised me. The ending was so unexpected I had no idea what to think so I just kept on reading it. I was a bit taken aback when I saw that it was set in 1872 and it annoyed me a bit, not really sure why though. 

So final thoughts::: amazing story line, beginning very boring and plain but it picked up later on. I’m quite happy that I judged the book by the cover :D


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed the read! This book sounds right up my alley - I love the time period as well. I'll have to add this to my TBR list. Great review!

    1. Hope you enjoy it too! It's slow to begin with but it's worth it :D

  2. I'm glad that you liked this one! I thought that it was fairly good, LOL! Unfortunately, my cover just wasn't as gorgeous. And I totally know what you mean about not being able to put down a book after you start it. Shamefully, I can put them off but not stop 'em. Awesome review, Paulina!
