This is a mind bender of a novel.

Dane and Mandy are a famous magic act - until Mandy is killed in a fiery car accident. Or is she. As Dane mourns her loss Mandy finds herself - her 19 year old self - living in the present but with the memories of the teenager she was. Confused as to all of the changes in her world and as to the loss of all she knows Mandy also discovers some very exceptional magical abilities.

Dane moves to Idaho, Mandy's home state as they had planned to do before the accident. There he meets a young woman who reminds him of his beloved dead wife. As he follows her and her magic he starts to wonder - who is she, what is her magic and could she be his dead wife?

There is a lot to keep track of in this book; it is not one you can slack off on while you read. At times I must admit it got a little convoluted but the overall concept is really quite fantastical and it comes together at the end with a truly wild show. You can't help but fall for a love story as strong as Dane and Mandy's and you long for it to survive even death. While some of the scenes went on a bit too long and were a touch repetitive it is certainly a book worth reading.
