Genre: Paranormal. Horror. Murder Mystery.
I liked this book well enough although I didn't find it truly spectacular or captivating. It's just an easy little ghost story and murder mystery to get lost in. There is also an element of romance to the story although it certainly isn't the focus only a small added bonus (it's M/M too).
For the most part, as I mentioned, I did like the story. The author mixes a ghost story in with a murder mystery and readers will be stumped when it comes to the killer. Is it really a ghost? Or is it a person? You'll have to read to find out. I also like how the author weaves between the past (when the murder/disappearance takes place) and the present (where they are hosting a paranormal investigation as adults to figure out what happened to their missing friend). This is the perfect way to tell this type of story because it adds to the overall creepiness to the story as well as gives us readers some background information so that we can find clues for ourselves.
The ending of the book is satisfying enough, although I was hoping for something with a bit more of a bang especially considering the atmosphere of the whole story. But it works fine the way it is and doesn't leave anything open for interpretation for us readers. Its packaged in a tight little bow which is how many prefer their endings.
All in all, I think this story would work well for both young adult AND adult readers. Personally I feel like it is geared towards the younger crowed but adults can enjoy it just as much. This book would also be perfect for those who like a short and haunting read with added creepiness (it has a seance and it scared me a bit), and those who like a quick little mystery.
