Seeing Ghosts by James Garcia Jr.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Three years after losing his wife, Paul is still struggling to let her go. He thinks about her constantly to the point where he has not been able to move on with his own life. When Paul and his brother, Ray, inherit a house from an aunt they do not remember, Paul decides to move in to get away from things. Alone in the secluded house, strange things begin to happen, and Paul soon discovers his wife is not the only ghost hanging around.
I love good ghost story, and this one did not disappoint. I felt sorry for Paul and his struggles to live after loving the love of his life, though at times, especially in the beginning, I wanted to yell at him to just get over it. It had been three years…I get it, he loved her, but it is time to move on already. I enjoyed watching his progression throughout the story. He struggled still, but he was trying. The other characters were great as supporting roles, including Ray, the brother, and Anne, the real-estate lawyer.
The setting of this book was a little dark and a little creepy, just the way I like my ghost stories. Though I was able to guess some of the plot twists, there were enough surprises to keep me guessing and an overall haunting feel to the story (pun intended).
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
