    At the start, she was so closed off that I wasn't sure I'd really form a connection to her, but wow I did. She is 

    . I don't want to give anything away so I am going to keep this simple, but she learns and grows so much during the book, and you really can't help but feel compassion for her.

    She has a grandfather with the same ability to see people's deaths and okay I freaking 

    Deda! He's a grouchy old man that loves Lexi some kind of fierce and their relationship is everything. One of her coworkers (and I am not saying who!) is another character I have a huge soft spot for. And her ghost roommates? Yeah they're kind of awesome. And maybe Lexi ends up falling for one of these people. Just saying, it's a possibility ;)

    Like obviously this could veer into cheesy territory, but doesn't. Lexi has strategies for not touching people (physically

    emotionally, let's be real) that make the story believable.

    I loved it, I kept trying to guess who the villain was, and it was just really fun and compulsively readable.

    The only minor qualm I had was that the ending was a wee bit underwhelming for me? Definitely not a dealbreaker or anything, and doesn't negate the good parts of the book, but worth mentioning.

    I'm just going to go ahead and say that if you read any of the "I see dead people" books, let it be this one!

    This was my introduction to Emma Berquist's writing and I thought it was really unique and strong. The story starts with our main protagonist Lexi, who has a very powerful, if not inconvenient gift where she can see can see how and when other people will die when she touches them. It's not a gift Lexi is happy about, it was passed down from her Grandfather, and it's caused her to have very few friends or relationships - she's isolated herself as much as possibly. However, she has to work to live, so she uses her gift at a "club" downtown that is kind of a safety spot for people like her.

    When Lexi is called into work, she accidentally bumps into a young woman, Jane, and sees that she is going to be murdered that night. Lexi freaks out and runs away, doing nothing to try and stop it but later feels a lot of guilt and goes looking to see if the ghost of the girl has hung back and sure enough.... It's hard to go into much detail here because it would only be even more confusing than I've already made it and it would give way too much away. Stuff gets really really weird from here on out there, but a good weird and lots of intrigue and mystery.

    Some kind of random things that I really liked about this story is that it didn't go with all the traditional things we know about ghosts. Yes, some ghosts hung around because of unfinished business but some just hung around because they weren't ready yet or they were waiting for someone. They were also warm, instead of cold. So, when they came up to you, it was comforting rather than unpleasant. Also, even though at first ghosts walked around looking how they passed (which is pretty nasty if you died a horrible death), you could eventually glamour yourself however you wanted. You weren't stuck with it. I thought that was nice.

    There is a small, queer romance that I did enjoy, even though I have a million and one questions about it but I'll keep my lips zipped up. I think this might be a bit of a polarizing read, it's quite different and I find that always puts people on the love it or hate it side of the fence. I personally thought it was fun and a really interesting take on a mystery story. I would 100% read Emma's work again.

    Why aren't more people reading this ?!!!

    I really liked a premise and as a fan of the TV shows ghost whisperer and medium I was intrigued but somehow on the fence cause I didn't want to read the same old story.

    Luckily that didn't happen first of all Lexi's power has more to it than seeing ghosts, knowing how and when people are gonna die was a really nice addition and it gave her an excuse for being a jerk most of the book. She was lonely and in pain.

    Again I don't want to give things away but I j

    I adored Berquist's debut novel last year and was so excited to see that she was, once again, coming out with something completely new and different.

    It didn't take me long to pick it up and dig right in. I loved the whole unique concept of this book. With a blend of the everyday with a supernatural spin that sets it apart from others in the genre.

    A mystery filled with ghosts and magic and things that can go bump in the night. A very unexpected hint of romance and you combine it all into a story

    And even though it wasn't at all what I had been expecting, I really did enjoy it, weird romance angle and all.
