Review by Paulina Woods
I usually have a hard time getting into books about ghost but Betty made it really exciting and fresh.
Paulette is a focused, semi-lost, soon to be mother. Having to move in with her sister, who she really doesn’t get along with, after her baby’s daddy walked out, she’s lost and trying to find her place in life.
Zak has one mission in life, save his brothers sight. Drawn to Roseville in search of answers Zak finds himself drawn to Paulette.
Watching these two fall in love is a reminder of gentler times. Well maybe, sometimes I really wanted to scream at Paulette. I know she has been hurt but she takes it out on Zak sometimes. I love the grandfather’s ghost, so adorable and throw the funniest tantrums.
This is a great book to read and I have added the first of this series to my TBR list.
