An important part of wellness is taking time for yourself. One of the best ways to do this and escape your problems is to take time out with a good book.

Mandi Tucker Slack has provided us with just that--a compelling story line that pulls you in and keeps you until you reluctantly turn the last page.

About the book:

Kadence Reynold’s favorite pastime is exploring old ghost towns, but when she and her sister, Maysha, stumble across an old journal and cheap pendant hidden in the depths of a crumbling foundation near Eureka, Utah, their world is suddenly turned upside down. Immediately, strange dreams and premonitions begin to haunt “Kadie” as she learns more about the author of the journal, Charlotte Clark. Kadie sets out on a journey to learn more about Charlotte and her family, and she and Maysha travel to Bremerton, Washington, where they discover Charlotte's still living twin sister, Adelaide and her family.  

Kadie and Maysha, upon arriving in Washington, are immediately immersed in Adelaide and Charlotte’s story. Kadie soon learns that Charlotte disappeared the night of a tragic fire that took the lives of Adelaide’s entire family. With the help of Logan Mathews, Adelaide’s handsome grandson, and Charlotte’s ever disconcerting presence, Kadie delves into the past. Hoping to solve the mystery of Charlotte’s disappearance, Kadie immediately discovers the secrets contained in the journal will toss her and Adelaide’s family into a world filled with mystery, past regrets, and dark unknowns.

I really enjoyed this ghost story with a romantic twist. I had trouble putting this book down. I wanted to learn more about Adelaide's past and Kadie's future. An exciting adventure, interesting character study, and fun read.

This book is appropriate for all ages from middle school up.
