review 1: I wasn't sure what to expect when reading McCoubrey's coming of age novel, but what a wonderful surprise it was for me! It took me back to my own youth as his style reminded me of the great books I read at that age. (Only the books I read didn't allow for same-sex relationships.) I very much enjoyed this book and can't recommend it enough to those who love romance, mystery and if you are older like me...a little nostalgia as well.

The romance told in this novel has an added twist of a mystery as well. The home Caleb and his family move to is haunted. I'm personally a wuss and there were some scenes early on that made my heart rate jump a bit. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves young love, mysteries, and family dynamics. less
