Once again we continue Chanel Carter’s experience at the summer camp in La Casade Asturias in Northern Spain where she is teaching English in spite of her knowing no Spanish to converse with the students. She and her nine year old son Amari are settling in, but she is having trouble dealing with all the strange goings on, i.e. a large hairy creature, a dead young girl in the pond, a nightly visit by a handsome stranger in her dreams, a rude butler said to be a ghost, and her strong attraction to Professor Rodrigo Garcia Perez.
Chanel has come to the camp to rediscover herself and get away from her husband who was not only a bad husband but also a neglectful father. With the money she will earn, she will have enough to move to Philadelphia where her mother lives giving her little family a new start. Amari is loving the camp because he has made a friend, Celeste, Marina’s daughter who accepts him and his dreaming premonitions. This psychic ability is something that kept him from having friends back home in England. Unfortunately, when a ghost tries to drown her twice, she questions whether staying is in her family’s best interest. At least at home she knows her husband won’t try to kill her.
Her attachment to the sexy professor keeps her where she is. Just when things are really heating up, he suddenly seems to want to put a stop to it. Marina is not faring well she is losing weight and is pale and Chanel knows that something is wrong. If you read book one then you know all about Marina’s escapades or I should say sexcapades in the middle of the night. Chanel wonders if that is the cause of her apparent failing health.
I ended my review of book one by stating there was a cliffhanger and many unanswered questions. This book ended the same way, but I did get an answer to who the girl in the pond was and her story. There is still a ghost who is after Chanel, the professor is suddenly turning away from her, and Marina is in worse shape than Chanel first thought. So as before, I have to wait for the next book to get some more answers as to what is going on in the camp and with the main characters, Irene, Marina, Chanel and the professor. I believe that this series would have been much better if it was done as a full book with a beginning, middle and end. The way it is now, it lacks real substance. In addition, this book desperately needs good editing.
