Publisher's Summary

Abby Kimball has just moved to New England with her boyfriend and is trying to settle in, but the experience is proving to be quite unsettling, to say the least. While on a tour of local historic homes, Abby witnesses a family scene that leaves her gasping for breath - because the family has been dead for nearly a century. Another haunting episode follows, and another, until it seems to Abby that everything she touches is drawing her in, calling to her from the past.
Abby would doubt her sanity if it weren't for Ned Newhall, the kind and knowledgeable guide on that disturbing house tour. Rather than telling her she's hallucinating, Ned takes an interest in Abby's strange encounters and encourages her to figure out what's going on, starting with investigating the story of the family she saw and exploring her own past.
But as Abby begins to piece together a history that's as moving as it is shocking and unravels a long-ago mystery that nearly tore her family apart, she also begins to suspect that Ned's got secrets of his own and that his interest may be driven as much by a taste for romance as by a love for history.

No more

Recap waaaay overdone. Narrator mispronounced/mis-stressed words disconcertingly, especially the overused name of the town. The plot was pointless. I kept going to find the why, but there wasn't one.

This could be a good book--but misses the mark

What is good: the author seems knows the area she is writing about and has an interesting idea for a story.

What needs help: The story goes nowhere. at the end you are no further into the tale then you are at the beginning---she has a new boyfriend and moved but the story hasn't progressed. You need to sit down and focus on your story line--outline the progress you want to make in each book. Personally--after hooking up with the understanding boyfriend I would have shown an advancement in her specter ability. Let them come to her now or let her hear what they are saying. Let her find out a relative contacted and talked to the dead. You just don't give us enough; the ending was a flop with no promise of more. Do a rewrite--boost your story--focus on whats important--we need more advancement before the end of the story and a promise of something in the next book (following the main story line). Remember the specter ability is you main action line---relationships are a added secondary development.
I wish you well and would like to see this story again after a rewrite
