Alice May Parker moves with her family to the sleepy town of Pacific Grove after her Mom dies, but little does she know the strange and terrifying events to come. When she falls into the bay during a kayaking trip, she is rescued from drowning by the mysterious Henry Raphael. Handsome, old fashioned and cordial, he is unlike any other boy she has known before. Intelligent and romantic, he sees straight into her soul. Soon Alice and Henry are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance until she finds out that Henry is not all what he seems. . .

I am never really crazy about most books with a teenaged girl as the heroine and this one was not much different.  The story however was addicting but our heroine and the stilted language put me off a bit.

Starts off quickly enough and we get to meet both of our couple Alice and Henry in a dangerous situation so that grabbed my interest and while I was not bored the writing was a bit verbose and the heroine just did things that were either kinda stupid or actually went against the picture of her the authors was trying to paint.

While this is a ghost story for the most part it is original in its reasoning and story origin (well except for an Indian maid named White Dove) so the story kept me reading while the heroine and her actions kept making me want to put it down but at the end I did enjoy it but not sure if I would grab any sequel sadly, I felt this could have been a good stand alone novel but the author left it in a place where it was obvious a sequel was the  future hope.

All things considered, 3 Stars it is and even though I liked it at the end I had to struggle in places.
