Anna Crestwood was raised with the strict beliefs of a religious sect nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. She's a lesbian with a ton of baggage - fearful, guilty, and alone. Very few things would compel her to leave the familiar. The job offer of a lifetime is one of them. Against her better judgment, she packs up and moves to Illinois. Unfortunately she's not there long before she's convinced that the devil is hunting her down.
Gabe Garst is a police officer. She's also a powerful medium. Her work with juvenile delinquents and ghosts is all that keeps her going. Inside she's dead, certain that her capacity to love is buried six feet under. Talking with and seeing the dead has always come easily, and yet for some reason she's not able to communicate with her late wife. She's grieving, depressed, and alone. Suicide seems like the best option. It's just a matter of time.
Anna's and Gabe's paths cross. Their attraction is immediate, but they hold back until all hope seems lost. As good battles evil, two tortured souls must engage in a struggle to overcome demons of their own.

This story weirded me out in a few ways. for one the emotional development was odd and disjointed. there's no sense of growth or progression it's just like bam over it! bam! love love! bam sexy time! and the phisical development was weirdly awkward. plus they kept forcing Evelyn into every part of the situation sex, intimate conversation, everything which made the awkwardness more aparent. it kinda felt like Anna was not just falling in love with Gabe. it felt more like she was being forced to assume Evelyn's place. Gabe pushed her to wear her cloths and basically told her that Anna was just like Evelyn in almost every way. if I were Anna I'd feel like I was being loved for someone other than myself. it was just strange.
"Bizarre, not enjoyable "
This doesn't explain it's weird style of literature.
The story when tolerated because it's the only one unread in your library is not very exciting or of particularly intetest. At 1st I thought it might be a ghost story, but alas it was plain daft. A story for the sake of it.
A disappointing purchase, and thus was recommended by Audible as similar to my likes and purchases.
Shame you can't apply a refund.
Having said all that being my personal opinion, others may enjoy it, the narrator does a fine job in making it quite dramatic.
There is a decent story if you filter the daft interference of irritating other worldly interruptions.
Even the ending though predictable is fairly good.
it's just not my thing with the religion and all...but again, it's due to the narration that entices one to listen albeit not by thing..
"Another great story from KA"
Interesting, Easy, Tender
In truth, I can't say moments. I was interested in the internal wranglings of the soul. I believe in the after life, so it was lovely that this was a realness in the story. I loved the respect and tenderness between the characters.
No. I think there is a lot of harshness, disrespect and easy gratuity in the world and one of many things I like about KAs writing is that it is a soft place to go and she shows what healthy relationships look like, so I always leave her books feeling better about the world.
