My Thoughts

 

Girl meets boy…girl has instant connection to boy…girl finds out she's something paranormal-ish, and boy is too.  Been there, done that. If you like that sort of read and don't mind some high schoolish antics (like…wtf was up with the impromptu ghost hunting they did?) then this story is a well written one.  It had it's funny moments, I'll give it that.  Unfortunately, it just isn't for me.  I think I'm over this kind of read.  Maybe, I should quit trying to make this genre work for me, but some of paranormal out there is doable for me.  Still trying to decide if I want to give her adult series (Charley Davidson) a try.  It seems to have more Mystery approach, so it might work.
