Very seldom does a book have the ability to completely transport me Into the character's lives and allow me to become a part of their story... But this one did and WOW!
I fell in love with how vivid the imagery was from riding in the metal basket of the bicycle to the description of each resurrection. Wonderful!!!
I love how the book took something real to some but mystical to others and was able to weave intricate character gets and story lines.
As an aspiring writer who just now is working on

I received a free copy of this book as a FirstReads giveaway.

I thoroughly enjoyed the author's writing style. It was a fast and fun read. It was a little too fast towards the end and there were a number of convenient coincidences. But, despite that, I would definitely recommend this book and this author to others.

OMG. This was an incredible riveting ride. It's difficult to express how absorbing and exciting this book is. Talk about "CAN't PUT IT DOWN"!! I really can't think of comparing it to anything I've read before. Do yourself a favor & read this winner.

Was sceptical at first but then could not put it down!! The writer draws you into the book character by character. Well written, highly recommend.

This is a well put-together story. It starts sadly, with the main character dying and leaving her children behind her. She soon persuades those children, and her closest friends, that she has taken on the body of someone they know and as the story progresses she finds herself in the body of several minor characters within the story. Together they solve the mystery of missing children and her own death in a quickly reached climax.
Actually, thinking on it further, it's a mad plot. Daft as brush, b

i received this book for free through goodreads first reads.
this book really surprised me.
i didn't think the author could pull off a trick like this one. body swapping spirits and all. it was all really intriguing and it left me wanting for more. like for the conjuring when the dead lady then goes to help people even when dead. really awesome.
thumbs up to the author!!!

I want more wakings!

What a wonderful story. Not that she dies, but all the rest. There were so many twists and turns. I laughed and cried and hoped for the good guys to prevail. The ending was a big surprise that I don't think anyone can guess what it is. I sure hope this is the beginning of a series because I loved it.

Unusual Plot

I never write reviews. I know I should, just kind a lazy. This was a great book. I read a ton and have never read a book based on reincarnation. Easy read too. Definitely recommend and hope read more from this author.

This is one of the most enjoyable books I've read this year. If you have a kindle it's free on Amazon but it should be on Kindle unlimited so the author gets paid some money for every time it's read.

It took me a while to get into this book. We meet Emma, as a child, and learn of her gift. The gift is a bit unbelievable within the story. For a person that is supposed to have her gift, she sure is horrible at using it. She is oblivious to just about everything. I keep wondering if possibly she lost her gift in one of the boring sections that I only skimmed. I don't care enough to go back and read those sections just to find out. Once I got to about the halfway point I knew where it was going ...more

I liked this book for the most part. It was a quick easy read and the premise was really interesting. I really enjoyed that the author kept me guessing who was a bad guy and who was a good guy. At times, however, it strained credulity. And the part that bothered me the most was that I don't think any decent mother, regardless of the circumstances, would involve her own minor children in a pedophilia ring investigation. Especially considering she kept referring to herself as a protector of ...more

It took a long time to read this one. The story moved too slow to keep a momentum of steady reading, but I kept returning to finish it. Occult movements usually adds inhuman behavior from human to the next, and one tries to see it all as fantasy, but that is not always the case.

This was actually a good book once it picked up speed. McCauley may well become a new author for my list of reads.
