About the book: Eighteen-year-old Lucy doesn’t know how she became a ghost, but the more she remembers of her life in Victorian England, the more she wants to forget. Her only hope of changing the mistakes of her past is to enlist the help of a servant named Philip—the one living person who can see her. This impossible romance story is filled with delightful period detail and plenty of mystery.
My review: I loved the plot of this book! Lucy knows that something bad has happened and that someone has died. She isn't sure just how she knows, because she really can't remember anything. And strangely enough, no one seems to be able to see her. No one that is, except a man named Philip. Lucy and Philip must fight against time and Springett Hall itself in order to figure out just what had happened to the two of them and set things back to the way they should be.
This book is really great! I loved the sense of mystery. What has happened to Lucy and Philip and just why? How can they get back to their normal human selves? There's plenty of suspense and questions. And just when Lucy and Philip think they have something figured out Lucy disappears. Crazy, another thing they must figure out. I really liked the character of Lucy, she's curious and adventuresome. But I'd probably be more adventuresome too if I were a ghost! This book has mysteries, suspense and danger around every corner. Just when I thought I had it figured out, the characters would unravel something new that messed up my theory. You're going to want to stay up late reading this one!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
