Book blurb:

Love can make you do crazy things as Ruby Parker discovers when she dies and returns from the grave to unearth how much Leo Culver loved her. With the aid of bad advice from a ghost who is trapped by a curse, a little bit of magic courtesy of her unsuspecting half-sister, and a televised music talent show coming to town to hold auditions, Ruby Parker makes more of a mess in death than she ever did in life. Can she fix everything before it’s too late? Or will she spend eternity as a ghost, haunted by the unknown depths of love? Either way, one thing Ruby learns is that while love can make you do crazy things, it can make you do amazing things too. But at what cost?

Author biography:

Music first captured the creative interest of young adult author D L Richardson. From choir, to her first acoustic guitar at age ten, to singing with the school band and performed in main roles in two school musicals. When she left school she helped form her own rock band where she sang lead vocals, played bass guitar, and wrote all the lyrics. At age 26 she sold her equipment and focused on writing instead.

 She lives in Australia on the NSW South Coast with her husband and dog. When she's not writing or reading she can be found playing her piano or guitars, renovating the house, or walking the dog.



My Review:
At first I thought that this book would me more like a fairy tale. However it was so much more. It had time travel, ghosts, curses, family life and most of all love. I would say that the main theme of this book is following your heart, rather than letting your life be ruled my a sense of duty. I also want to mention that the author is a very good writer. There were words that were very descriptive, and they were not words you see a lot of. Some examples are reverie, paper-thin petals, and acquainting. I really liked the sisterly bond that was in the book, and the way the ghosts appeared, and disappeared was also interesting to read. The ending definitely finished and answered some issues. I did feel as though there will be a sequel. I would like to read more from this author, especially descriptions. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
