Happily Never After

Happily Never AfterHappily Never After
by Missy Fleming

Published February 6, 2013

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

There's no such thing as happy endings.

Savannah, Georgia is rumored to be the most haunted place in America. Quinn Roberts knows it is. She's felt the presence of spirits her entire life, investigating and photographing them with her best friend. Only none of those encounters ever turned violent, until now. The menacing darkness feeding off her stepmother has promised she won't live to see her eighteenth birthday.

After a chance meeting Quinn reluctantly allows actor Jason Preston into her life, which has complications of its own. She's not used to letting people get close. Falling for him while fighting for her life, and her family's legacy, only complicates things more. Jason shows her exactly what she stands to lose, especially when she's being attacked by the mysterious entity. Each attack is more violent and terrifying than the last.

With Jason's help, she dives into the Roberts' family history, searching for a link between a woman who went missing a hundred and fifty years ago and what's happening now. What they find is a brutal murder and that the ghost doesn't just want to hurt Quinn, it wants revenge.

It wants her life.

I loved this book! It was full of adventure, interesting characters, and ghosts, with a dash of history.

I have to admit, I loved the whole haunted house thing. I've read books where it's overdone, or cheesy, and I was a little worried this would fall in with those books - but it never does.

And it's a Cinderella story! (Who doesn't love that?)

Trying not to ruin this for you, because it's a must read. I was hooked from the first sentence, and even though I saw the ending before it happened, I still loved it.

I'm looking forward to the next book.

5/5 stars
