Summary of the Book:

There’s something extraordinary hidden beneath Wickwood’s picturesque façade.

Bree Tisdale is a jack-of-all trades blogger whose work history is nothing but tragic. When she lands a job with a supposed ghost hunter—the mysterious Zack Liller—he threatens to upend her world.

With an eviction notice in her back pocket, she doesn’t have much of a choice. Yet, as the mysteries pile up, the impossible suddenly starts to seem possible…

…Even trusting in Zack and the fire he lights inside her.

Zack Liller grew up with ghosts and has little time for fun and games. Reservations that Bree will be a good fit for his sister’s company plague him, but one day spent with the vivacious woman ends up convincing him Liller Investigations can’t do without her.

Or at least, that he can’t.

But, as things heat up between them, he is forced to wonder if he can trust Bree enough to be honest about his abilities.

When the house they’re investigating turns out to be one of the most active he has ever experienced—and the most dangerous—he realizes he may not have a choice.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book made me feel like I was along for the adventure with Bree and Zack. Bree was a very sassy and bright light in the story no matter what she was going through. Zack was kind of a down and he was a bit buttoned up. But I think they were a cute combo for this book. It almost played like a movie in my head. This was a new author for me and I hope the rest of the series is just as powerful and fulfilling as this one was.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
