"Your cook made some pastries that had me dying to be alive again, just from the way others reacted."
Tessa doesn't know where she is. Worse, she doesn't know who she is. But apparently, she is a ghost. A ghost trapped in a castle she doesn't recognize. She can walk through walls, levitate objects and can't be seen by any of the servants. Until Christian, Lord Kresley, arrives and is the only one who can see her. Christian has never seen such a beautiful lady, nor encountered such a mystery. As they endeavor to figure out who she is and what happened to her, they just may find that the past doesn't want to stay in the past. And that their feelings for each other could lead them down a dangerous path indeed.
My Opinion: This was a fun book. I'll admit it started out rather slow and could have done with more character development, but it was still good. I enjoyed the mystery of Tessa and what had happened to her in the past. The twists and turns keep you on your toes and anxious for a happily-ever-after. Christian is a great character and by the end you really enjoy the role he finds himself in. Tessa is a bit lacking in courage but is a sweet if slightly uninspiring girl - not that she wasn't written well, that's just her character. Their romance is sweet and frustrated by their circumstances. It was a fun book that I would recommend.
I was given a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
