...until a young girl's body shows up one night in town, wearing a necklace exactly like Teagan's.

Now a guy looking remarkably like her missing boyfriend has arrived in Salem along with a mysterious stranger who may have some answers that Teagan has desperately been searching for. Teagan must now decide who to trust. It's a matter of life... and her death.

 My Review

I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  Teagen has had an extremely rough year.  Her boyfriend vanishes into thin air, the guy she thought she’d spend the rest of forever with.  Her heart broken, she falls into a deep depression.  Her grandmother, getting up in age can no longer live alone.  Teagen seeing this as a chance for a fresh start, packs her things and moves from New York to her grandmother’s mansion in Salem, Massachusetts.  Right away she gets a fantastic opportunity at a Gallery to sell pieces and display her own work.  Life finally begins to feel normal; until Lark and Teagen come across the body of a murdered young woman having a striking resemblance to Teagen.  Suddenly Teagen has the “irrational” fear that the murderer was after her.  Then she sees a young man that looks very much like Jason, her lost love.  On the brink of a breakdown she goes in search for answers.  Will Teagen be able to handle the truth?  This was an amazing story, it had everything needed to keep my interest.  The only part I had trouble with was the character Jason, why he was Celine’s patsy and did he or didn’t he ever love Teagen.  I’m hoping book two of this series clears that up for us.
