Jade has a dedicated boyfriend, an overprotective mom, and a full
scholarship. Uprooted from Nantucket, Jade is installed off-island at
her dad’s new house so she can attend snobby Layton Academy. Leaving
Charlie behind is sheer torment, but living with her father has plenty
of dangerous distraction—in the form of a terrifying spirit haunting her
new school. Hottie classmate Mateo Fernandez can’t see the ghost, but
he knows its story. He’d like to know hers, too, but Jade still misses
Charlie, even though distance seems to be changing him.
With support from Mateo and the mysterious Noemie, Jade commits to
helping the agonized spirit cross over. As she delves into the ghost’s
past, the disturbing secrets Jade learns draw her into a deadly
confrontation with a desperate man. If she can’t play his demented game,
the spirit’s harrowing fate could become her own.
Melissa MacVicar lives with her husband and two children on Nantucket Island. She loves classic rock, watching football, and reading anything romantic and suspenseful. She survived prep school, and was brave enough to attend her college reunion.
When she turned forty, Melissa decided to renew her adolescent passion for fiction writing. Having once thought publishing a novel to be an impossible dream, she’s proud to be achieving her lifelong goal. In addition to writing, she’s a full-time teacher, an avid runner, and a somewhat reluctant tri-athlete.
