Some secrets are deadly, and ghost-blogger Jillian Winchester and her photographer boyfriend discover it's true when they set out to investigate an Australian family who disappeared without a trace in the 1880s.

An abandoned sheep station rumored to be haunted by the Kinsley family with ghosts instead of dead bodies or clues is one challenge. The other is the beautiful but deadly Outback.

As Jillian probes deeper into the mystery, one thing becomes clear: She might not make it out of this quest alive.

Well this was a quick read! The pacing at the start was a bit slow and a bit hectic since it felt like we were just dropped into these two peoples’ lives. It smoothed out quickly and became a story that captured your attention.
Our heroine can see and talk to the ghosts of people who for whatever reasons have not “moved on” . This one was a bit of a mystery to solve of why seven people just vanished over 100 years ago with no trace.
The author leads us around and gave us some clues and also introduces us to a few more characters (one of whom will play a large part in the solution).
There are some erratic semi romantic musings that seemed to take me away from the story and felt out of place, since we didn’t know enough about our main couple to feel anything about their relationship.
Be warned that this is not a real happy story when we find out the truth but it was enthralling to get there.
Bottom Line: It was a good ghost story with a few twists that were not expected. Even with some small parts I felt did not fit well, it was still a great story and held my attention, so 4 Stars.
