    I really like susan Meissner books and i did not like this story as much.. That being said in my opinion it would have been better without the whole ghost story part of it. To me it just distracted from the good story line. I still like her writing this was just not one of my favorites ....

I was afraid that the paranormal aspect may take away from the story, but it ended up really adding a dimension to it that w...
