    Julian Pendell's restful oblivion is shattered when the body of Jade Roberts is found on his grave. After her shock at finding herself dead, Jade uses her furious and unrelenting energy to enlist Julian to help her solve her murder. He thinks her rude and improper, and she thinks he uses way too many words, but they must somehow work together. The case takes some unexpected turns, and while they may already be ghosts, there are greater things to fear.

After her shock at finding herself dead, Jade uses her furious and unrelenting energy to enlist Julian to help her solve her murder. He thinks her rude and improper, and she thinks he uses way too many words, but they must somehow work together. The case takes some unexpected turns, and while they may already be ghosts, there are greater things to fear. This is a marvelously well-written YA paranormal. It was told from Julian's and Jade's very different points of view, and each voice was unique. Julian having passed over a century before is an immensely different sort of teenager than Jade who is from our modern time. The author's grasp on old British life is exceptional. I loved seeing the world through ghosts' eyes, learning their rules, and how things are at the old cemetery. I especially loved the other ghosts like the Captain and Ms. Radge. The mystery threw me through a lot of twists and turns, and I enjoyed seeing how the relationship between Julian and Jade grew as they tried to navigate everything. Jade has anger issues, but thankfully Julian has immense patience!

    This was a pretty good story; I just felt like it went a little off the rails in the second half. I think maybe the novelty of 'proper-Victorian-boy-meets-angry-Generation Z'er' started to wear thin by the end. I did enjoy the shenanigans these two ghosts got themselves into while trying to figure out who killed Jade, but I was pretty disappointed with the ending and who the killer ended up being. I can't say WHY I was annoyed without giving anything away, so I'll just leave it at that. Overall th This was a pretty good story; I just felt like it went a little off the rails in the second half.

There's nothing really inappropriate here; Jade gets a little obsessed with kissing in the latter half of the story, which just felt weird and desperate, but other than that, it's a solid ghost story. It just wasn't one of my favs.

    When 16 year old Jade wakes up dead in an old British graveyard she enlists the hep of a Victorian era ghost Julian to solver her murder. But the closer they get to an answer the mor of Julian’s long dead past is revealed- a history he would rather leave buried.

    A different kind of ghost story A ghost story that is more a murder mystery from the point of view of the victim than a creepy, crawly, skeletons jumping out of closets adventure. An old English aristocratic family that still has secrets a hundred years after a tragedy strikes the family. I really liked the juxtaposition of the modern girl thrown into the landscape of those whose sensibilities were formed a hundred years prior. The difference in language and way each expresses themselves was anot A different kind of ghost story A ghost story that is more a murder mystery from the point of view of the victim than a creepy, crawly, skeletons jumping out of closets adventure.

    This book is a quickly paced and engaging read. Very unique plot! It is told from two points of view--that of Jade a self-centered spoiled rich girl who has just been murdered and left in an old cemetery and Julian the poor guy whose grave her body ends up on. She is determined to discover who is responsible for her murder and insists Julian help her. Entertaining paranormal experiences abound.

    I really enjoyed this; probably more than I thought I would. The characters are funny and cute, the story is unique to me, and it's fast paced. It took me a minute to get into Julian's perspective due to the way he's written, but overall it's a fun novel. I really enjoyed this; probably more than I thought I would.

    I won this book in a giveaway, and I’m really glad I picked it up. There are 2 perspectives which were enjoyable to read. One of the perspectives is from a teenager from the 1800s, and I felt the author captured the old English style well. It’s a great read for Halloween time!

    I loved this book! I absolutely adored both character POV’s. The plot kept me so entranced I finished in one day lol. It was like a cozy ghost mystery— three of my favorite things put into one! I highly recommend this especially for the upcoming fall season. Perfect vibes!
