A Curse and A Mystery – The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by K C Tansley @KourHei
The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables Book #1) - K.C. Tansley

 

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by K C Tansley has been on my TBR shelf since 2015, so I was very excited when I got the chance to review it, and Book II, The Girl Who Saved Ghosts, in The Unbelievables series.

 

Cover:  Creative Paramita

 

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables, #1)

MY REVIEW

 

Mystery and intrigue, love and magic. Will she lose herself before she finds the answers that could save them all? Kat Preston will have to travel back in time to find out.

 

To save herself, Kat Preston had to become an Unbeliever. Now, in college, she surrounds herself with others, including her best friend, Morgan, who helps keep the ghosts at bay.

 

The Unbelievers makes me think of Ghost Whisperer. I watched the TV show all the time, and can sometimes catch reruns even today.

 

These ghosts call themselves the Unbelievables. Good ones. Bad ones. And all those in between.

 

Kat and her friends are going to Castle Creighton for a school research project. She is worried because it’s like stepping out of the frying pan and into the fire. They will be researching the murder and curse in the Radcliffe family.

 

I was quickly caught up in this ghostly mystery. The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts has all you need for a great ghost story, a castle, a curse, some romance and possession, travel to the past, and danger and intrigue. There are many suspects and the mystery was harder to solve that I thought it would be.

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts
The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables Book #1) - K.C. Tansley

Kat Preston has seen ghosts from the time she was a child. Well, she did, until she was taught by one of how to refuse to believe in them. This kept the ghosts away until she gets invited to Castle Creighton to investigate a curse on the family.

 

On their wedding night Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe disappear without a trace. Cassie's room was covered in blood, leaving most people to suspect that she was killed by Sebastian. But why, and where did he go after that tragic night?

 

Kat, and the team from her school, including her research partner Evan Kingsley start investigating before they leave for the remote Isle of Acacia. They begin to uncover the story of the grisly murder, the curse that befalls the first born son of each generation, and the hauntings in the castle. 

 

Kat is repeatedly drawn to a mirror, and one night she, accompanied by Evan, is pulled into the mirror. Waking up 129 years in the past, just before the wedding, possessing the bodies of Toria and Alastair, two of the guests at the castle. Knowing they have a short time to solve the mystery of the disappearance, the curse, and try to get back to their bodies, the game is afoot!

 

There are a number of enjoyable plot twists, and the mystery was a complete surprise to me, I wasn't able to figure it out beforehand due to layers upon layers of obfuscation and intrigue. This was a well played novel from K.C. Tansley. It is the first in a new series, and I'm looking forward to reading more of this series. This book was filled with mystery, time travel, curses, witchcraft, and a dash of romance.

 

Totally recommended for YA readers, about 8th grade and up. Adult readers will enjoy it as well though, but some of the teen drama may be unfamiliar. Those who like time travel, the paranormal, mystery, witchcraft, and light romance will enjoy this book.  Four stars for the style, the characters, the story, and the execution of the plot. This is a great book.

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables Book #1) - K.C. Tansley

Synopsys:

 

 

 

Kat Preston doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not because she’s never seen one, but because she saw one too many. Refusing to believe is the only way to protect herself from the ghost that tried to steal her life. Kat’s disbelief keeps her safe until her junior year at McTernan Academy, when a research project for an eccentric teacher takes her to a tiny, private island off the coast of Connecticut.

The site of a grisly mystery, the Isle of Acacia is no place for a girl who ignores ghosts, but the ghosts leave Kat little choice. Accompanied by her research partner, Evan Kingsley, she investigates the disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe on their wedding night in 1886. Evan’s scientific approach to everything leaves Kat on her own to confront a host of unbelievables: ancestral curses, powerful spells, and her strange connection to the ghosts that haunt Castle Creighton.

But that’s all before Kat’s yanked through a magic portal and Evan follows her. When the two of them awaken 129 years in the past with their souls trapped inside the bodies of two wedding guests, everything changes. Together, Kat and Evan race to stop the wedding-night murders and find a way back to their own time—and their own bodies—before their souls slip away forever.

 

 

 

Review:

 

 

“I received this from netGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.”

 

 

The story is quite enjoyable, intriguing in some aspects.
But as interesting the plot was I still had issues with the book, it was soo frustratingly slow, it lost it focus on the main cause and drifted off to tell other events without any results. It was implied that Kat could’ve done something many times, Or at least improvised. But she did nothing; she just cowered behind her search partner Evan and just waitedwined her death.
And how the hell could Evan have that much control whilst the other (as it was told many time that she was strong) loose it every single time?

As for the character,in my opinion were not well harmonized, it’s like watching a movie where the story is interesting but unfortunately played by bad actorscharacters.
I can’t follow their conversation, attitude…ect, I’m always rolling my or puffing my irritation with them.

Overall, I'm Glad we got more insight on the murder, to know the victims, main suspects, their heritage, unraveling all the mystery. But the drama was too much for my liking.

"The Unbelievables"
The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables Book #1) - K.C. Tansley

Do you believe in "The Unbelievables?" I definitely think that is a more fitting title. I even prefer just the series name, "The Unbelievables" better then I do "The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts." It just doesn't seem catchy enough to me, but hey that's just my opinion and really the only thing I didn't care for about this book. It was a fantastic debut!! The story was very entertaining and well-written. I don't want to call it an actual "ghost story" because it doesn't have the creepy, scary, suspense of a true ghost story but it is about ghosts, a 129-year-old murder and a family curse. I thought it was more of a fun, adventure/mystery story. There is also a little bit of time-travel in it too. I normally don't read time-travel stories because in my experience, more often then not, they aren't written very well, but that's not the case here. The author, K.C. Tansley, does an exceptional job articulating her ideas and putting pen to paper. She kept the dynamics simple and it worked. Well done!! I can't wait to see where "The Unbelievables" lead us next!

Great Story, Great Characters
The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables Book #1) - K.C. Tansley

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**

Kat was in Professor McTernan's class of the lore and lure of historical places. Kat had to do a paper on a double murder that happened in 1886. Ghosts were things that Kat had actively avoided for the last 8 years. Ghosts were a constant presence since childhood, but Kat had some things to help her.

Kat was a young woman who had powers and she connected with her ancestors to do what had to be done. She was a great character, as were all the others.

The plot and overall story were very entertaining. I highly recommend.
