Caitlin King can’t believe that her shopaholic cousin actually bought two ghosts off of eBay. But she can’t ignore the truth when she starts seeing sexy Liam O’Reilly, who’s been dead for over a hundred years. He’s a fascinating specter, and the more time Caitlin spends with him, the closer they become—sending them both spiraling into a star-crossed tailspin. No matter how desperately they long for each other, there’s just no future with a guy who’s already stopped breathing.

In order to help Liam and his twin sister, Anna, leave their earthly limbo and cross over into the light, Caitlin must find the ghost of Anna’s fiancĂ©. But a malevolent spirit is dead set against Anna moving on. Now Caitlin will have to unravel the mystery surrounding the twins’ past lives in order to keep Liam’s spirit safe—even if it means sacrificing her heart in the process.


I was searching eBay for a poltergeist that I could send to Joood - Hooligan's house when I came across this book. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but it seemed interesting enough, so I decided to place a bid on it anyway. I definitely low-balled it, but since the book wasn't signed or anything, I thought I still stood a chance. A couple days later, I awoke to discover that I'd won both bids I placed that day. (You're welcome for the poltergeist Joood...I see that it's been doing its job in your apartment.) 

When the book finally arrived in my mailbox, I had some time to kill, so I started reading it right away. After all, I have it on good authority that reading in the afterlife is quite difficult because the lack of a corporeal form makes it quite difficult to turn pages. Your only real hope is to stand over someone's shoulder while they're reading a book, and just hope that they read at the same pace you do. But anyway, I'm not dead yet, so I read this book all on my own at my own pace. 

Now, I've just got to say that I think Caitlin is dumb for letting herself fall in love with a ghost. Like that is exactly the kind of guy that should be friend-zoned immediately out of the gate if the friend zone was actually a thing. I mean, sure, if you're lucky your dead mom will come back to turn your ghost friend into a real boy for a night of dancing, but is that really going to be enough for you romantically? I doubt it, even if he does look like Devon Sawa. So just be smarter than that ladies. Don't fall in love with a ghost. That's really the moral of this whole story. 

I give this book 3 pesky poltergeists.
