really liked it

Peyton can see and hear ghosts and because of that, she drinks, to excess. When her best friend makes her go to her brother's wedding, she orders Peyton not to drink, because her drinking is problematic. A lot easier said than done to an alcoholic. Especially one who is being told to "get out" at the wedding from a man named Patrick Smith who was murdered at the venue.

This was a quick read as an introduction to the series. I didn't feel that Peyton's character was overly developed other than to consistently talk about how much she was drinking. It felt like that's all she was doing, and I think if someone refilled a flask and took as many shots as she did, she would be on the floor, not fully functional. I felt that too much time was devoted to her desire for alcohol rather than moving the story forward. There is promise in the series and what she does with her talents.
