My Review: 


My original rating for this review was three stars, but I have no changed it to two stars.
I did think this was a good story. But if I hadn't of been listening to it on Audio I don't think I would have finished it. I say that because while there was a mystery it wasn't the main focus of the story.
The main focus of the story was Romance between Mark and a character we meet in the beginning of the story. What parts of the mystery we did get I loved them and found it very interesting. I feel like this story could have just been fully focused on the mystery and what had happened withe paranormal things and it would have been far more interesting.

I don't think I will be reading/listening to anymore of DeSousa books in the near future.

The audio narrator for this story is the only thing that got me through the mystery lacking parts. I can't wait to listen to more of her narration in the future.
Received book in return for honest review from the audio narrator (Michelle Babb)
