So – not at all what I was expecting, but I ended up enjoying it!
Synopsis – Charlotte sees dead people who need help. Ike is a dead person who needs help. They bond. Except the help Ike needs is with his (living) brother – George. And Charlotte and George have a connection as well.
I thought it would be a little more intense. A little more woo-woo. But basically it was just really sweet.
Charlotte was (mostly) likable. And Ike was the shit. Everyone else was okay.
My biggest issue – the pacing was weird as hell. Wayyyyyyy too much stuff happened in 2 days for this to have any vibe of legitimacy. And Charlotte moved too fast and came on too strong. No one does that kinda stuff after a week without being slapped with a restraining order. I also felt the writing was a little stilted and blunt.
Overall it was a sweet emotional getaway. I read the entire book in one sitting. And by 50% I was invested enough to forgive it its flaws. It took me a while to read this one, but I’m glad I read it when I did. It fit nicely in my current head space.
