Jade and David are house sitting their grandparents' home in Charleston. David is earning money for college, while Jade is trying to sell her paintings at an art festival. Elaine, Jade's best friend, is also staying with them, and David finds another college friend, Matt, who also comes to stay at the house.

Everything is going great until jewelry and clothes are either missing or moved. While having a barbecue, hamburgers and vegetables fly suddenly all around them. It turns out that the house is being haunted by Phoebe the ghost.

Phoebe was Jade's great aunt who had a tragic life -- her death happened on her wedding day. Phoebe gives Jade the task of finding her and her groom's wedding rings so she can rest in peace.

Matt and Jade start to look for the rings but then Jade's ex-boyfriend, Kurt, shows up. Kurt is a real piece of work and starts to stalk Jade.

This was a roller coaster of a story and I enjoyed every minute. I liked the relationship between Jade and her big brother. During the course of the story they end the relationship they had as children and start a mature adult sibling relationship. There isn't any blood or guts but the haunting can be quite scary when we don't know about Phoebe. Kurt is very scary, as well, realistically so. There is also a good romantic twist which is fun. So this Halloween or at anytime, do yourself a favor and read LISTEN TO THE GHOST!
