I love love loved this story. Jennifer Crusie has an amazing ability to make me laugh out loud one moment, and then wiping away tears in the next. The two kids in this story are as unique and entertaining as they are heartbreaking.

This story has a host of characters that liven the pages, from a psychotic news woman to a dancing ghost.

I love stories about second chances, reunited soul mates and this one was all that and more. North and Andie have an incredible love and the mystery, the ghosts and the plot are the perfect backdrop for this zany couple.

This story is a reminder of why I love Jennifer Crusies work so much. She creates an extraordinary tale that is simply impossible to put down. This book is a keeper and will be read and reread by me at least a zillion times. This is Jennifer Crusie at her finest.

Have I mentioned that I loved it?

OMG this is one of the neatest books! I have read a lot of other od Cruisie's books and picked is up from the library cause it was on sale! I could not put it down! This is a bit of a departure for Cruisie, whom generally writes light and airy good fun chick lit! At least those that I have read! This is a wonderfully imagine ghost story/ love story! You really cling to every word, waiting to discover what's making things go bump in the night! There of course is an underlying love story, but the meat is the haunting! It's a perfect blend of spookiness, she doesn't go over the too at all. I must admit this is a first foe me. I don't know that I've read any chick lit haunting stories! But it's great! A definite must read!

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were all interesting and fun. I couldn't put it down. I haven't read a good Jennifer Crusie book in a long time and this one was great!

Can't even tell you how long I've been waiting for Jenny Crusie to publish a solo book, but it's been a long time. Then I read the reviews of this at places like Dear Author and tried to prepare myself by not expecting so much. So maybe my delight in this comes somewhat from having lowered my hopes, but the things others criticized about this didn't seem like such a big deal. Yes, the hero and heroine spend a significant part of the book apart, but the absent person was there in their thoughts and in their hearts in a way that this didn't bother me. And the criticism that Andie didn't do anything to help Carter even though it was pointed out that Carter's danger was more subtle just didn't wash with me, because Andie had a lot of other things going on, demanding her attention, and when crunch time came she was there.

I've never read the Turn of the Screw (of which Jenny says this is a modernized retelling) but I may have to. Because this is a good story with lots of great creepy stuff in it.

This is not one of my favorite Jennifer Crusie books. I did not think that it was near as funny as her others. I only gave it three stars. I liked the 'living' characters and one of the 'dead' ones wasn't bad but overall, I would not spend money on it. If you would like to read some good books by Jennifer, you should read any of her others as I enjoyed all of them. :-)
