One woman.
Two choices.
Love or family?

Finding the man of her dreams, Adeline Montgomery is finally ready to spend her life with Blake Greenwood. But happily-ever-afters aren’t in the cards for a woman who deals with the dead on a daily basis.

Forced to team up with her greatest enemy, Addie must embrace her gift—in order to save those she loves. Desperate to uncover the truth behind her father and grandfather’s disappearances, Addie delves further into the past—confronting the demons of her background. The deeper she digs, the closer she comes to destroying everything she’s ever hoped for. Torn between her loyalty to her family and her love for Blake, Addie must choose between the two. One touch could break them all…

Okay, can I just say wow?! I mean it. That one word sums up my entire review for this one. I really liked this one. The characters have really grown since the first one, in both personality and relationships! The story has taken on a life of it's own, the relationships, the mysteries, the... deceptions, Ms. Richards has really outdone herself this time around!

I was quickly engrossed in the story and felt a real connection to the characters. I was invested in their future... or their past, depending on how you look at it. I was completely enthralled by the idea of Addie's newly discovered ability and couldn't help but wonder what it would be like.

The writing is superb, though on a couple of occasions I did find myself going back a paragraph or two because I lost track of what was going on or who was present in the scene. Many unanswered questions from the first novel are answered this time around, but more questions are asked as each revealed mystery, each discovered lie, each exposed deception unfolds.

Once again, the novel leaves the reader on a happy, but semi-cliffhangered ending. Will they find Blake's mother? Will they finally see the end of Otto? Will they ever find their way home? What of the Gardner Art? Hopefully those questions are answered soon!
