    What I ThoughtI really enjoyed this book It was full of depth emotion adventure real life moments and a bit of my fav paranormal This book is about a girl who passes through to the afterlife She soon discovers the love that another had for her and sets off on a journey to find out and correct her past She soon finds that things aren't always what they seem and are never as easy as they first appear She catches herself in a series of mix ups and messes and tries to correct them before it is too late Along the way she also learns a lot about love and what it can provide I liked the characters I felt like the author made them very real They had depth and personality making them easy to connect with Plus even though one of them was a ghost they were dealing with adventures and lessons that we all learn in lifeand hopefully mistakes we haven't made The world was completely real and believable I felt as though I was there with the level of description the author provided for the surroundings The story also had an excellent pace There was enough pausing and slower movement to really make you feel what the characters were feeling but there was also a uicker pace to give you a feeling of urgency Overall this is an excellent book It is very well written has depth and personality is completely real and believable and the adventures hook you straight away I highly recommend this read

    Received for free from First Reads on GoodreadsIF YOU LOVE TEENAGE ROMANCE CROSSED WITH GHOSTS READ THIS PLEASEThis book was the perfect mixture of real life teenage angst and romance combined with the paranormal side of ghosts and possessions The main protagonist Ruby was the most frustrating main character of a book I have ever read but the reasons behind this made perfect sense I didn't love her any less I just hated her choices She at times was cruel deceiving and self centered But it was for love and as a teenager that made it alright in her mind She was able to rectify this in the end with a realisation that what she was doing was selfish as she tries to help another cursed couple I think the book was too short for my liking However the ending was pleasing and satisfying I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who loves to read teenage romance at its most raw and to those who enjoy a good paranormal story D L Richardson's writing style is clear and concise and makes it an easy book to devour in a day or two

    I received this book as an Early Reviewer Copy through LibraryThingcom and was really looking forward to reading and reviewingImmediately engaged with the characters I was intrigued to discover where the story would take us and how Ruby's life would unfold Seemingly a typical teenage story I was surprised to find it was a paranormal romance the twist giving an added dimension and edge to itIt was great to see the different relationships develop as Ruby tries to fix one problem and creates so many I love that the eyes are the windows to the soul and personality trumps perceptionI was a little surprised with the ending which came uite suddenly and was a little superfluous Given the events throughout the story if this could have happened then why didn't it happen sooner? It felt a little as if the story had to end so let's do it this way A further proof read would also be beneficial as albeit minor typos can be very distractingAll in all however it was a good read full of twists turns and a humour which I thoroughly enjoyed I would definitely recommend it as a light read and look forward to from this author

    At times this book made me irritated primarily relating to the choices Ruby was making and how she came across as pretty self centered Then the light bulb turned on for Ruby and the transformation occurred and I was able to connect with Ruby This book flowed well and kept my attention throughout the book I loved the ending
