It's not easy for Maddie to return to small-town life in Blackstone Bay, mostly because the boy she left behind is still there - and she's drawn to him the second she sees him again.
Nick Winters has always been in love with Maddie. At a certain point, he decided there was nothing he could do but let her go. When she returns to town after a 10-year absence, his world is upended.
Maddie's reintegration isn't smooth, and when she discovers a dead body, all eyes are on her. Since Nick is a local police detective, he finds their lives intersecting with alarming frequency. He knows she's hiding something, and he's determined to find out what it is.
Maddie and Nick are drawn together, but they have a few obstacles in their way - including a lifelong secret she's kept buried: She can see and talk to ghosts. When Maddie's life is in danger, though, Nick can't turn away.
This duo is on a collision course with the truth, and death is stalking them every step of the way. Will they get a chance to embrace destiny, or were they doomed before they ever got a chance to begin?

Characters I couldn’t like ruined it for me.
Real rating 2.5*
SERIES INFO: This is Book #1 of 5 (so far) in the “Maddie Graves Mystery Series.” Book #6 is scheduled to be released on Feb 6th. Only the first 2 are available so far on audio.
MADDIE - I have a personal dislike for characters who ignore it when EVERYONE tells them they’re attractive. There’s a difference between “She don’t know she’s beautiful” and willful stupidity.
LUKE - there is just no excuse for his not sitting his girlfriend down and kindly letting her know it was over. Whether or not he & Maddie ever make it work in future books, he doesn’t love Cassidy and stringing her along is just cruel.
I wasn’t fond of the side characters either. Their pushing a timid and not very experienced woman (whom they supposedly cared about) out on a date with someone they knew was a wolf, in order to try and jumpstart her relationship with another man, was just a horrible thing to do.
I did like what we learned about Maddie & Luke’s past relationship. That couple could really have made it work. I might try out one of the later books, when they have had a chance to work some of these things out.
NARRATION: Her voice was soothing. I liked it. / Listened on 1.25 speed (my usual)
I COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT: Swearing / Both main characters have had sexual relationships with people they know they don’t care about.
OTHER WARNINGS: Possible triggers - the murder turned out to have a sexual component & there is an attempted rape
