The Deepest Cut - J.A. Templeton
The Deepest Cut is the first novel in the MacKinnon Curse series. This book is free for the kindle. This is a young adult romance novel with a twist. Can you fall in love with a ghost? Riley Williams is 16 years old. Riley was in a car accident with her mother, and her mother didn't survive. Ever since then Riley has been able to see ghosts. Riley's father moved the whole family, Riley, Shane her younger brother, and himself, from Portland Oregon to Braemar Scotland. It was ostensibly as a work transfer, but mainly to get get Riley away from bad memories and bad influences. Unfortunately, living in a Scottish inn, that's hundreds of years old, presents problems for a girl who can see ghosts. There are some spirits who want Riley's help and some who want her dead. Riley has to find a way to break a centuries old curse, and stay alive while doing it. This is an excellent book. I'd recommend it for any young adult readers. There's plenty of suspense and scary to go around, and some spirited romance, if you'll pardon the pun. Very highly recommended.
