A year after the murder of her husband, Lilly Lawson is still plagued by nightmares that have pushed her back into her adolescent habit of cutting. Even worse, she starts to see and communicate with her husband’s ghost. When she goes to the sentencing for the man convicted of the crime, she finds herself captivated by the killer's brother.
Daemon Kelly has returned to their small town after a long absence to care for his elderly mother. He also has to face the whispers regarding his brother's crime and his own alcoholism. When he comes face to face with the widow of the man his brother killed, he feels an intense need to protect her, but from what, he doesn't know.
When the two fall in love it is anything but easy. Aaron Lawson is intent on coming back and claiming what is his. And the closer Lily and Daemon get to Aaron's ghost, the more they unravel the truth about why he died in the first place. Piecing together bits of ancient Celtic lore, can they find a way to help Aaron's soul find rest?
My mini take...
A long time ago, Boucher approached me to beta a little of what she had wrote. It was good. Darn good in fact. I would find myself wondering what became of those characters and if the mystery that surrounded them was ever solved. My interest was definitely peaked.
Fast forward to present time and I am finally able to see what happened to everyone involved. Boucher has now published her debut book and I got to tell you, I really liked the story line and the uniqueness of it all. This read was beyond creepy and packed full of suspense. I loved that about it. Know what else I loved? The romance. It was sweet and the attraction was instant. Daemon and Lilly make one hell of a team. And together they set off to find out why her husband’s ghost is back. Even if it costs them their lives.
