First Line: "Starting over sucks, but at forty it sucks the life out of you. This
thought squeezed my brain on the six- hour drive to Bethany
from Dallas. I second- guessed my decision for the ninety- ninth
time, eyeing every exit ramp as a potential escape hatch."

Where to start.....

Well I will say one thing. This book was heartbreaking for me. My boyfriend thinks I'm crazy because I cried at multiple times throughout the novel and he kept wondering if it might be that time of the month. He couldn't wrap his head around the fact that this book was just so touching and emotion stretching that reading each word just made my heart break. But then again, he's a guy. So what do you expect?

This book was another ghost story. Two in a row now, I must be on a roll! It was very sad. When you fall in love with a ghost there are many factors that you have to think about. Most times you can't touch them physically, unlike Whispering Hills, the last book I read. This one was the more traditional ghost story where you can't physically touch the ghosts. Oh, and people think you're crazy when you talk to invisible people.

This novel showed how mean and hurtful people can be when you're different. They start throwing stones at your entire family. Your daughter, your father, your loved ones. A big theme of this book is that you should stand up to them and be strong.

Dani and her daughter Riley are so strong. They fight through the entire book even though alot of people think they're crazy. They prove them wrong and hold their heads high. That's what everyone should do in this situation. Don't let others tell you who you should be. You lead your life even if you can see ghosts. Oh and especially if they're hott ones....
