When Emma Vaile's parents go missing while away on a mysterious business trip, she's left all alone in her creepy old house. But her brother's very cute best friend, Bennett Stern-Emma's knight in J. Crew armor-arrives unexpectedly to whisk her away to New England. There, Emma settles into his family's museum-like mansion and enrolls at an old-fashioned private school. She quickly finds friends in the popular legacy crowd at Thatcher and spends her free time crushing on Bennett. But the eerie visions she's been hiding from everyone have gotten worse. Emma has memories of Thatcher that she can't explain-it's as if she's returning home to a place she's never been. Finally, Emma confides in Bennett and learns she is a ghostkeeper, a person who can communicate with ghosts. Bennett brought Emma to Thatcher to protect her, but now he needs her help tracking an other-worldly murderer.


A rich New England setting filled with mystery, tradition, and prep-school intrigue make Deception the perfect choice for fans of series like Kate Brian's Private, as well as all those paranormal fans. The shocking ending will leave readers desperate for book two.

An interesting take on ghosts and how ppl see them. In this series they are called "Ghost Keepers" They can compel, dispel, summon and communicate with them. BUT not all GK's can do all 4, most can do only one and each GK varies in strength. Oh and to make things interesting, GK's can not be togeth...

I liked this one a lot right up until the very end. The characters decisions for most of the book made a lot of sense. I liked how she kept finding out more as the book progressed. The ending felt really out of left field and soured things for me.
