Life isn’t fair…and neither is death. 

When seventeen-year-old Nebraskan, Rachel Sutton moves into her new home in Maine, she quickly discovers it is the former residence of Noah and Ethan Thompson, teenage brothers recently killed in car crash. Brothers who have yet to move on. 

Ethan, spiteful and jealous, is obsessed with Rachel, and Noah, guilt-ridden and gorgeous, is trying to save his brother’s soul. As Rachel spends countless hours with Noah, and dates Parker Redding, a popular football player, she finds herself torn between her feelings for the living and the dead. 

One fateful night, Rachel must choose. Will she embrace her life on earth with those who love her? Or find out what’s on the other side?

I received an advance review copy for free from Book Sirens, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I’m not going to lie I didn’t like this book. When I read the review I was intrigued to read it. The blurb really drew me in but when I read the book I was disappointed.

I didn’t like the writing of this book, it made it feel like it was written by a child meaning that the actual story which had the potential to be really good just failed miserably.

This book had a plot that could have been so good if it was written better. Teenage brothers who haven’t moved on, one who’s jealous about the relationship developing between his brother and the girl who has moved into their old home. Anyone would read it but it just doesn’t live up to expectations.

Lets talk about character development or well not. There is none. Zilch. Which makes this book even more disappointing. They just lack everything. All the dialogue between the character’s in this book feels totally forced. The relationships that develop into what is supposed to be a “love triangle” is forced. It just makes me feel incredibly uncomfortable reading about it all. The relationship that develops between Rachel and Parker just makes me cringe. All the dialogue leading up to it is just so awful.

I may have read this book in a day but that has nothing to do with it being good, because it just wasn’t I was just so bored that I just wanted it out of the way.

I’m sorry but this book just wasn’t my taste.
