About the book: Sadie Smith was absolutely certain of three things: (1) ghosts were indisputably real; (2) she and her three friends were some of the best (though not the most successful) ghost hunters in Oregon; (3) her teammate Jefferson Parrish was always the scariest thing in the room. In a face-off between supernatural beings and Jefferson's Tim Burton-esque vibe there really was no contest.
But ghosts—unsurprisingly—can’t help pay the rent. So when Sadie and her friends are offered an undisclosed sum of money from an anonymous client to find a link between four historical haunted locations, it’s an easy sell.
During their cross-country investigation, Sadie finds herself forgetting about Jefferson’s macabre tendencies and falling for his sweetness, even if his idea of a love letter reads more like a note from a serial killer. And she can’t stop thinking about his annoyingly irresistible deep green eyes.
As Sadie’s feelings get more tangled up with Jefferson, their group puts together the final pieces of a 100 year old mystery—one that will change Sadie’s life forever.
My review: I love the way that Shannen Camp writes, so I was way excited to get to read and review her re-release of Parrish. This is one that I hadn't read before and I loved every bit of it!
I loved Sadie, she's part of a ghost hunter group. She's the unlucky girl who always has to dress up and try to get the ghosts to answer to her nonsensical questions fed to her by Jefferson Parrish. She truly is a character, she's just a bit afraid of the dark and doesn't want anything to do with her family. She's also a waitress because the ghost hunting gig just doesn't pay the bills. I love the way that she always says just what's on her mind. And how pretty much what you see is what you get.
Her friends are pretty fun characters too! There's Brighton, she has almost every phobia you can think of, but she always seems put together. Then the two Parrish boys, Jefferson, who seems like he's out of a way earlier time period and Deacon, neither of which can hold onto a job.
Things are looking bad for the group, ghost hunting just doesn't pay very well, but somehow a mysterious benefactor slips them all envelopes basically hiring them for a job that this mysterious person claims will put their monetary fears to rest. And the group is quickly off on a cross country mission hunting ghosts and learning more about themselves and each other. And just hoping that somehow they'll be able to have enough money to meet their needs along the way.
This book is really well-written! I was a bit scared myself in some of the ghost spots! There's no way I'd read this one at night, but I really loved reading the story and I'm really hoping for more!
