"Walk of Spirits" and Hospitals (a weird Lexi review)

Hello, great Readers!

So, my Papaw is in the hospital, and I'm staying with him tonight. He's doing better, but I wanted y'all to know I'm not ignoring the blog or anything. So no post on Tuesday; I was pretty busy taking care of the house, my Mamaw, and our dogs. Prayers and good thoughts would be appreciated. :)

Okay, so today's book is Walk of Spirits by Richie Tankersley Cusick.

Summary: "When Miranda Barnes first sees the sleepy town of St. Yvette, Louisiana, with its moss-draped trees, above-ground cemeteries, and her grandfather’s creepy historic home, she realizes that life as she knew it is officially over. Almost immediately, there seems to be something cloying at her. Something lonely and sad and . . . very pressing. Even at school and in the group project she’s been thrown into, she can’t escape it. Whispers when she’s alone, shadows when no one is there to make them, and a distant pleading voice that wakes her from sleep. The other members in Miranda’s group project, especially handsome Etienne, can see that Miranda is in distress. She is beginning to understand that, like her grandfather before her, she has a special gift of communicating with spirits who still walk the town of St. Yvette. And no matter where she turns, Miranda feels bound by their whispered pleas for help . . . unless she can somehow find a way to bring them peace." (Danke, Goodreads!)

This book was so good. The acceptance of Miranda from the others seemed a bit too fast, though. I did like the idea, though. However, it could be dragging at times. I did love the love story though, and the ghost hunting. Otherwise, it was "meh." Compared to other novels in this category, especially with novels like the Lily Dale series, the situations and dynamic of the characters just didn't stand out enough for me.

In Conclusion: It's interesting. Flip a coin to decide whether to read it or not.
