Soon, the eerie events in her novel are mirrored in her own life, when strange things happen in the house where she is living for the school year. Disembodied footsteps and the intense feeling that she is being watched are only the beginning.

This is a captivating story about a young graduate student writing a ghost story while trying to make sense of the ghost haunting her. The author does an excellent job of taking the reader inside the mind of a young woman, Melanie, whose struggles with love anyone can sympathize with. I loved reading Melanie's most personal thoughts and fantasies as the book follows her through a strange and exciting time in her life, living in a haunted house and becoming close with two men. The suspense builds as the story progresses, and sections near the end left me jumpy enough to not want to be alone in my house!

This book would be a great summer read - it alternates between hair-raising creepiness and romantic angst, and kept me turning pages all the way to the satisfying ending. Highly recommended.

This is ghost telling at its very best. Forget the cliches of werewolves and vampires. Instead, Michelle Tuccitto Sullo offers readers the kind of ghosts, combined with her vivid imagery and succinct word choice, that eerily rap chills down the reader's spine. She populates her story with complex characters and a budding romance that sweeps you up in its realistic relationship dynamics. But just as you nearly forget it's a ghost story (and as you regain your brevity to traipse through you quiet home for that midnight snack) she snaps Fear back to attention as a reminder to always look over your shoulder and question the unusual.

Michelle Tuccitto Sullo grabs the reader and does not let go. She has a novel within a novel in this story and don't read it at bed time! But also expect romance, mistakes in love and a few surprises.
