I really wanted to love this book - and after reading the preview on Bookish First, I really thought that I would. But as the book progressed, I felt like it dragged and I just didn't connect with it in the way that I thought I would.

Emily, our main character, is very sad. The loss of her parents a decade before is still haunting her. It is this fact that we are reminded of over and over again. At the start of the book, I felt sorry for her but as the book moved on, I got tired of hearing about it.

Elizabet is the ghost that is haunting Emily's workplace. She too is still grieving a loss. I would have loved to have spent more time learning about Elizabet.

I think one of the main reasons I didn't connect with this book the way I thought I would is because it was a very descriptive about what was happening but the plot line was not that extensive. You don't keep turning the pages because of the plot line. If you like stories with a lot of heart and not a lot of action, maybe this one will be for you. It just wasn't for me.
