Publisher's Summary

My name is Charlotte, and I have a special gift: I talk to the dead. Make no mistake, I can't summon them. I'm able only to see and speak to the spirits that linger when they're unable to cross over. They're somehow weighted to the world with unfinished affairs. And for the last six years, I've relentlessly used my gift to help their lost souls.
But it's come at a price. My life is dark. Feeling despondent, I've begun to give up. And in helping the dead, I've realized I haven't allowed myself to live. With no money, no place to go, and, most importantly, no hope, I've decided there is only one option - to end it all.
Fate is a funny thing, though. One minute I'm about to leap to my death, and the next I'm saved by Ike McDermott. The strong, striking soldier stopped me from putting an end to my despair. He's the kind of man who smiles and brightens an entire room. Sweet and gentle, he's my savior - and he's dead.

I knew it would be horrible

Not the book, but the crying. Gets me every time. Full ugly cry, snot included.

Well way to go Ms Toler.... because you've officially broken my heart and stamped all over it with this poignant, tragic, heartbreaking, funny and heartwarming love story. And, as I type this review, the tears are still running down my face, I'm surrounded by tissues, my throat is painful from trying to hold back my emotions and my heart is torn into shreds. Oh, I knew the pain was coming but never did I think that it was possible to write such achingly beautiful and very touching scenes as the ones I've just listened to.... and am now trying to recover from (but it might take me a while).

Charlotte (Char) sees the dead who are caught in limbo not quite ready to move on because they have unfinished business here on this plain. Char was given this ability after a tragic accident cruelly robbed her of her Brother and left her broken and in a coma. She's been struggling and travelling around for five years after her disbelieving parents gave her money and kicked her out - but now, lonely, cold and broken, she's finally hit rock bottom and wants to end it all.... and that's when Ike comes into her life.

Sniff, sniff.... sorry but I'm reliving the story.... oh get a grip girl.... ok ok it's been 5 minutes and I've pulled myself together (for now) and can see the screen again. Ike is dead but he's shocked and happy that he can be seen and talk to someone after so long and he wants to save this beautiful broken stranger too. He also needs her help to save his brother George who is in a bad place both physically and mentally to hide his pain - so they make a bargain that will eventually lead Char to happiness.... but it'll be through angst, drama and a whole heap of heartbreak too. Because not everyone in the sleepy little town is pleased to see her, not everyone takes pity on her and not everyone gives her a helping hand.... but thankfully most of them take her under their wings unaware that she's accompanied by Ike..... their friend, their brother or their son.

As you can see this listen really moved me - it was hauntingly beautiful and yet devastating too as Char slowly gets closer to both brothers and their family and friends - always aware that she's withholding the truth from the living but she's just waiting for the 'right time' to tell. But Char's also heartbreakingly aware of her impending dilemma.... that if she fixes George she will lose Ike forever. That's sad enough.... but it's how it's written, the gut wrenching words that make such emotional scenes that this talented Author has brought about and the way you can't help but be totally charmed by all the characters concerned - especially Ike, that really gets to you as you reach the inevitable. There's angst and some drama, the chemistry is palpable leading to soul-deep romance with no sex and it's humorous as well as being 'tear your heart out' painful. Mainly dual POV's (Ike and Char's) and then finally a few Chapters from George's POV and the narration was good. Standalone and no cliffhanger.

Worth a credit? One million YES'.... and worth the tears, puffy eyes and being laughed at too.

what an absolutely wonderful story. Not my usual genre but I'm so glad I chose this. The story is so well written and I just loved all the characters. The narration was brilliant from both. Highly recommended
