A hereditary curse
Tiffany "Tiffy" Schafer is a novice Shaman. Saddled with spook-o-vision on her sixteenth birthday, Tiffy can chat with ghosts and may eventually be able to speak with Nature spirits like her Nana. Instead of vacations and sunbathing, she gets to spend an exciting summer in strict tutelage of how to use her new "gifts."
A summer of strange disappearances
After a friend of Tiffy's ex-boyfriend goes missing, the boy returns as a grotesque Merrow: an undead thrall of a water witch. She realizes there's something fishy going on in her coastal town than simple disappearances.
Caught in the middle of this brewing supernatural battle is the boy Tiffy swore to love forever. The prize: his heart.
Is there ever anything that isn't irresistible about a good ghost story? If there is, I'm not sure (thankfully) that I've encountered it.
It truly is hard for me to resist a well written, well plotted ghost story and Ms. Holly reminded me why I haven't given up on indie authors.
Every now and then you come across one that can truly write and entertain and captivate.
I had so much fun with this short little read that I truly didn't want it to be over and I highly look forward to the next. I can see this series becoming something that will be so much fun.
This was well done and I can't wait for more.
