Instant New York Times bestseller!

"I absolutely loved this book and didn't want it to end." --Liane Moriarty, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Little Lies

“This is an ‘accidentally stayed up until 4 a.m. because it's impossible to put down’ kind of novel.” --USA Today

Seven perfect days. Then he disappeared. A love story with a secret at its heart.


When Sarah meets Eddie, they connect instantly and fall in love. To Sarah, it seems as though her life has finally begun. And it's mutual: It's as though Eddie has been waiting for her, too. Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn't call.

Sarah's friends tell her to forget about him, but she can't. She knows something's happened--there must be an explanation.

Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she's right. There is a reason for Eddie's disappearance, and it's the one thing they didn't share with each other: the truth.


Advance Galley Reviews

I would definitely recommend this book. It is a terrific pageturner. Sarah's boyfriend Eddie disappears after a trip. I really enjoyed this book and the writing.

Quite a bit better than I thought I would be going off the initial synopsis. It's definitely a well written story. It's an emotional ride and definitely worth reading.

Emotional and exactly what it promised to be. Highly recommend

I received a copy of this through Penguin First to Read. Sarah, who is a recent divorcée and resident of LA, meets Eddie on her annual trip home to the U.K. Immediately they hit it off and spend 7 days together with plans of a future. After adding each other on Facebook and adding their numbers to each other's phones, Sarah is shocked when all contact with Eddie is not responded to. Did Sarah imagine their amazing connection or is she just being the recipient of the never call back thing? Sarah makes the decision to find out what went wrong. Unfortunately she doesn't hear back from Eddie and is warned to stop calling him. Was the connection all in her mind or is something deeper going on? I did enjoy this book quite a bit. I definitely would recommend. Definitely 4+ stars

Great read! Emotional love story that is worth reading!!

This book had started slow for me. I almost decided not to finish the book because Sarah seemed kind of annoying. I couldn't believe that this relationship that lasted seven days was going to amount to anything. What I had thought was the ISSUE that Eddie was ghosting Sarah … was completely wrong !!! Seriously … a book that had twist after twist !! I'm glad that I stuck to the end. I enjoyed the book very much. This was a title that was available to me with BOTM … but since I was already reading this book with FIRST TO READ … I skipped it. Now I wish I got the book.

Thank you First To Read for giving me the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Ghosted by Rosie Walsh. However I completely ran out of time and didn’t have a chance to read this book. I was really looking forward to reading this book but life just got in the way.

I received this book from Penguin Random House First to Read. This is a hard review to write without posting any spoilers. I truly enjoyed reading this book and got through it in just a few days of intermittent reading. I just kept wanting to know what was going to happen next. Sarah was a good character, though occasionally whiny and self-indulgent, I was rooting for her the whole time. Eddie was pretty aloof, but it eventually all comes together and makes sense. I enjoyed the author's writing for the most part, but became distracted with her constant reference to "brown hands". I had to go back and make sure these characters weren't POC. Nope, white Brits. But a weird reference that popped up many times and in descriptions of different characters. Anyway, there were plenty of twigs and turns - some surprising, some expected. But they all kept the story moving along nicely. A few loose ends not tied up at the conclusion of the book. What happened to some of the semi-main characters??? Overall...4/5 stars.

I received this book as part of Penguin's First To Read program. During this particular haul, I requested 4 books and I didn't love any of them. Until this one. This was the book that I've been wanting to read all summer long. It wasn't slow at first, but I found myself incapable of putting it down when it reached the turning point. I had grown to love the characters and the pace of getting to know them. THEN, the pace quickened just when I wanted the story to last forever or stop... I wasn't sure at that point. I was wrong about so many things that I thought in the book, but in the best way possible. I would definitely recommend this to everyone. A wonderful read that will definitely go on a must-read list of mine to send to people in the future.

I would have loved to have attempted to read this book, however I could not get this book to upload to my reader.

I have mixed feelings about this book. While I enjoyed reading it, the book felt a bit confused as to what it wanted to be - a love story, a mystery, a drama? All would have been fine but it did not transition between the genres well. I do think the story was a bit drawn out and armed with too many attempted 'gotcha' moments that so many books seem to have these days. The heart of the story would have been enough, but this veered into overwritten.

My feelings were up and down with this book. On the one hand, I felt for Sarah, for what she was going through. But on the other hand, the non-stop pining and chasing after him was just so drawn out and long, I wanted to reach into the pages and smack her. The fact one of her best friends supported her incessant stalking was a bit too much too. But the blurb assured me there was a reason for his disappearance so I trudged on, knowing it would eventually stop. While I understand Eddie's reasoning for disappearing, when you love someone, you don't do that, no matter the reason. But we don't always see reason when we're hurting. The writing was really well done and the storyline came together well. I wanted to love this story and it was the beginning and the end of the book that made me like it as much as I did.

2.5 stars; I rounded up. First, thank you to the Penguin Random House First to Read program for an advanced copy for an honest review. I really wanted to like this book. I liked the premise - two people meet, have a whirlwind romance, and then she just doesn't hear from him (hence the title). Why? Where did he go? To be fair, the book answers all the questions. Everything is resolved by the end, which I do appreciate. But getting there was tough. The book is littered with letters "To You" and "From Me" and the reader has to guess who they are to/from, often with purposeful misdirects. The mystery part of the book was withheld for too long, in my opinion, which made it drag. When Sarah (the main character) is frantically wondering why Eddie ghosted her, this could have been condensed considerably. By the time secrets start to be revealed, the book does get better, but the process of getting there took too long. Also, the information that was not provided by the author was too much - clues should have been dropped sooner instead of a "bam" reveal. Also, you have to suspend reality to think that this wouldn't have come out during the couple's time together, but that's true of many books lately. Last, there were too many ancillary characters that weren't developed well. These were introduced and then forgotten about for pages and pages. The concept was interesting, but it needed a little more polish in my opinion.

I was on the fence with this novel. Well written and entertaining on the one hand but on the other, it was difficult to like a few of the supporting characters. I realize you really don't have to like all the characters in a story, however, sometimes it really takes away from reading the book. I did like the tidiness of having everything tied up neatly at the end. Overall, it was an interesting read with a premise that is relevant in today's world.

It seems like the typical love story. Sarah and Eddie meet in a quiet rural lane in Gloucestershire. Their attraction was instant, immediately becoming lovers only after a whole day together talking over drinks at their local pub. They spend six more days together, cocooned in the bliss of their newfound love. Their week is halted, however, when Eddie leaves for his planned vacation to Spain. Secured in the knowledge that they will see each other again, Sarah and Eddie part exchanging phone numbers and social media details so they can still keep in touch. Eddie neither calls nor texts. Even on social media, he is silent. Like a ghost, he seems to have vanished into thin air. Distraught and worried that something bad might have happened to him, Sarah stalks his accounts, sends him numerous messages and calls his number all to no avail. Friends tell her to let Eddie go, to accept that he has changed his mind about her and them, but Sarah just cannot, convinced there is a reason behind Eddie’s radio silence. When she proves herself right, she must confront ugly events from her past if only to have a chance at a future with the man she has fallen in love with. I really, really wanted to love this book. It just looked like something that I might like, but a couple of days after finishing, the only thing I’m feeling for Ghosted is ambivalence. Without even giving much focus on their insta-love, Eddie and Sarah’s characters just felt flat to me. I couldn’t connect with them no matter how much I wanted to. Shallowly drawn and caricature-like, there wasn’t much to go about these two. I did not care what happens to them, if they get back together or not, probably because I did not get to know Eddie and Sarah well enough to even develop a bit of empathy for their characters. The same goes for the rest of the cast. Even the extraneous plot lines featuring these secondary characters – the affair between Sarah’s two best friends, Jenni’s IVF, her ex-husband’s new relationship – felt surface and don’t add anything to the story as a whole. The mystery element of this story, however, was what kept me reading. The puzzling letters, the constantly mentioned but absent younger sister, the dropped clues about a tragic accident – all these were intriguing enough that I continued reading Ghosted. Things started to become interesting about halfway through the book when, finally, more details about Sarah’s younger sister Hannah and the accident she was involved in were revealed. But this high point did not last long for me as the twists Walsh kept on throwing got very old fast. The revelations felt contrived and unbelievable, and by the end of the book, I just did not care for it anymore. Rosie Walsh, who has written several books under her pen name Lucy Robinson, definitely had some good ideas for this book; it was in the execution of these ideas though that she failed. I hate to admit this, but Ghosted just was not for me.

I really enjoyed reading this one! Ghosted is a good balance of romance, mystery and family drama. This was a modern take on the star-crossed lovers story, which makes you think about what you would do in Sarah and Eddie's situation. This book also takes a look at current topics such as the effects of social media and modern technology on dating and relationships and the challenges of dating in your late thirties. The mystery of Eddie's disappearance does a drag a bit, and Sarah's search for him makes her seem desperate and a bit of a stalker. But I was still drawn into the story, wondering what had become of Eddie and if they would end up together in the end. I thought I had things figured out, but a few clever plot twists took me by surprise. Thanks to Penguin Random House First To Read for the opportunity to review an advanced copy. Ghosted will be published 7/24/18.

A great story. Surprising, suspenseful, romantic and I can see a lot of people enjoying this story.

I didn't see that coming. It became clear to me pretty quickly where this story was going and then out of nowhere it took a surprise turn. Then I figured out where it was headed again just to be surprised again. I loved the unpredictability of the story and once I started, I couldn't stop reading until I finished. The ending was great. I like a book that wraps up all loose ends and doesn't leave you hanging. I feel this book was excellently written and would definitely read more from this author!

Shades of Nicholas Sparks and just as good!! Pleased to give an honest review after receiving an ARC from First to Read. Love with impossible odds. If you are a romantic at hear, it will be a joy to read.

Thank you Penguin Random House for the advanced copy of this book - all opinions are my own. This book is magnificent. A complete joy to read, mixing mystery, suspense, a love story and a character drama all into one un-put-downable read. Synopsis: Sarah falls in love with Eddie over seven perfect days that they spend together, before he has to leave on a vacation. He promises to call her and that he will see her when he gets back, and Sarah knows that she has finally found The One. Until he doesn't call. Or return her messages. He has disappeared entirely, and Sarah is determined to understand why. I absolutely LOVE this book - it felt so fresh and unique in unraveling a love story that was as complex as all relationships tend to be. The perspective of being "ghosted" is so relevant in today's society, and to see that play out between two characters, with the desperation that it would ignite in the person left behind felt so genuine and raw. I felt completely devastated for Sarah as she worked to understand why. How Rosie Walsh also managed to weave in a complete piece of mystery without losing any of the intimacy of the characters themselves is amazing. The twists and turns of this story just kept coming, and surprised me completely each time. I really thought I would get a handle on where the story was going, only to be proven wrong again and again. Every single character in this story is so terrifically human and well developed, that I felt like I was watching things unfold with people I had known my whole life. I think I ran every gambit of emotion with this one - pure joy, devastating heartbreak, confusion, and sadness. It is rare to find a book that manages to capture me as a reader so completely. I cannot WAIT to share this book with my friends. This needs to be on the top of every bookworms summer reading list.

I had high hopes for Ghosted, but unfortunately, it didn't meet my expectations. The title and blurb are pretty misleading: only the first third of this book are actually about Sarah being "ghosted," and the other two-thirds are basically about Sarah and Eddie pining for each other but at the same time hating each other and themselves and their families and their lives. Ugh. I also found the story hard to get into, probably because I didn't care much about the characters (except for Rudi, who was awesome). I didn't find Sarah and Eddie's romance very believable, simply because Walsh didn't really give us much to go with - just a few vignettes of their time together scattered amongst Sarah's ghosting-induced stalking and neurosis. Because of that, I just didn't really care if Eddie ever called Sarah again. I also didn't really get why Eddie/his mother/Hannah hated Sarah so much. Yes it was tragic what happened to Alex, but it's not like Sarah did it on purpose or really had much of a choice in what happened. Their anger seemed really blown out of proportion and I didn't have much sympathy for them because of it. There were also a lot of extraneous plot lines involving characters that Walsh almost twists our arms to care about, but they don't add much to the plot line and we don't really see much of them again: Reuben and Kaia and the Clowndoctor charity, Tommy and Jo's "shocking" affair, Jenni's struggle with IVF, etc. Finally, the "blindside" twists started to get to be a bit much. Once would've been enjoyable, but it just seemed like Walsh kept trying to do it all over the place and after a while it started to lose it's thrill and instead just became "oh, this again." Walsh's writing was well done and she had some good ideas here, but a lot could've been trimmed to give the book more impact and to pull the reader in.

Engaging and fast-paced, Ghosted seems to be one of those books covering multiple genres. Happily and contentedly spreading itself across several literary labels, Ghosted was mysterious, romantic, and a lovely character study. A couple of twists in the plot (no, not that one—wait for it) and this book had all I needed to be propelled through the story as fast as I could manage. Walsh creates two dynamic characters in Sarah Mackey and Eddie David. Between the two of them, they drove the book forward by way of that just one more page/section/chapter approach. I only wanted to find out more, even as one question was answered and more questions arose, I never found myself frustrated with the plot, pacing, or characters. I will definitely read whatever Rosie Walsh dishes out next.

I am sure people will love this one but I could barely finish this one. I felt like it would have been better for Sarah to just let Eddie go instead of stalking him.

This book had some serious 'holy-crap' shockers! I was riveted from start to finish, gobbled up every word, and felt like I got smacked in the face several times with total blindsiding plot twists! Sarah's been ghosted. If you don't know what that means - well... she literally fell in love with Eddie after ONE WEEK. They meet, by chance, spend an entire week with no-one but each other, the connection is insane, they are meant for each other, they both seem to be in love - it's that much of a connection. He leaves to go on an already planned holiday, with promises to call, to stay in touch, to possibly start lives together afterwards... aaaaaaand GHOSTED. Eddie is gone. He doesn't call or email, he hasn't been on Facebook, her texts go unanswered. He's just GONE. Weeks go by and Sarah is a HOT MESS. She knows Eddie was THE ONE. She knows he felt the same, but Where. The heck. Did he go? Her friends think she's losing her mind. It was one week! You are barely divorced! Guys suck! Get over it! But Sarah knows in her bones that something is wrong. Something happened to Eddie and she won't give up until he is back in her life and found safe and sound. But seriously Sarah, Get a grip. This chick is going looney tunes. She's obsessed with this guy and it's getting a bit weird. It's just about the only problem I had with the book. Tone it down Sarah! For goodness sake - it was a WEEK! The obsession and neurosis she goes through is a bit embarrassing! Yikes! But then, things start happening: Clues. Messages. Strange people watching her. And really old wounds are opened. Who is Eddie and why did he disappear?? I really really really enjoyed this (as much as I wanted to smack the living daylights out of Sarah and tell her to "stop it! he's just a dude! dudes do this sort of thing ALL the time!) but I really did have a great time with this book! It's interspersed with texts, and letters and flips between characters really seamlessly and it's worth a read just for the really shocking and fun blindsides. Definitely recommend!! Thanks to Penguin Random House for the advanced copy to read and review!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. When I first started this book I felt that the main character Sarah was a bit overly neurotic for my taste. It did keep my attention though as I kept wondering how it could end satisfactorily. It had several plot twists that kept up the suspense and was a fast read. I had trouble actually putting it down when obligation called. I enjoyed it immensely and was so happy that it was unpredictable but believable as well. Definitely one I’d recommend.

I loved this book! I didn’t want to put it down since there were so many twists and turns to the story - I just wanted to figure out what was happening! The writing made it so easy to read, and the author created characters you couldn’t help but love - you felt their pain and hurt and you cheered for their happiness! A must read!

Wow, this book has more twists and turns than a mountain road. Took a little bit to become engaged in the story but when it caught me it didn’t let go. Two families were impacted by a car wreck that took the life of one of their young daughters. It changed everything in the families lives and many, many years later nothing had changed. One of the sisters, Sarah fled to California from England but always went back for the anniversary of the accident. On her last trip she met a man and within a week they had fallen deeply in love. And when they parted he disappeared. Didn’t call, messege, text, nothing and yet he had promised that he couldn’t stand to be away from her!She can’t forget him and she can’t let it go! Really well done story, full of surprises and a few shocks. I thought I had many things figured out, turns out I didn’t. Full of suspense in what will take place next! Great read and the reason I am sleepy today! I had to finish it!

Well this was one absolute rollercoaster of a book. I knew from reading a couple reviews before starting this book that there was allegedly a crazy twist, but when it was revealed it still caught me so off guard! I think that's the mark of great writing and great storytelling. If you like mystery/romance with a very unpredictable plot and a satisfying ending, then I highly recommend this book.

Ghosted by Rosie Walsh It seemed like love at first sight when Sarah and Eddie met one day. This instant attraction revealed common interests and compatibility. Impulsively they spent a week together of pure bliss and declared love. Eddie leaves for a previously scheduled holiday with a promise to text and call daily until they can be reunited again. Sarah is beyond ecstatic when Eddie leaves with the anticipation of a life together once Eddie returns. It never happens! Where is Eddie? No text, no calls, no communication at all. This is one of those stories that only gets more intriguing as you read on. Sarah’s relentless search for Eddie is heartbreaking. Her fear that he is hurt or missing made me feel the same. I really liked her character and found myself mad at the “ghost” of Eddie. As you read on you see that both Eddie and Sarah have a haunted past. The story unfolds in an interesting and suspenseful manner. The reader will come to understand what happened to Eddie. This was a captivating story that I highly recommend. I received an ARC of this book from First to Read. This is my unbiased review.

Wow. This book was a mysterious and swoony all at the same time. I don't read a lot of suspense, but I'm so glad I had the chance to review this. I loved the characters; they were so well written that I fully understood why they did what they did and reacted the way they reacted. I didn't figure out the twist and it hit me hard! So, so good!

Ghosted by Rosie Walsh starts off as a intense, whirlwind romance between Sarah and Eddie, but then for some reason Eddie disappears. This sets Sarah into a panic and a refusal to let go. This part of the book came across as kind of sad and pathetic, which I think was Walsh’s intent, but made it harder to get through. Thankfully the book picks back up as it explores the possibility that a tragedy earlier in Sarah’s life could have led to Eddie’s disappearance and the possibility that there may still be a chance for them to make it work. It felt a little uneven in pacing, but the ending definitely made up for it!

Life can be full of events leading a person along a certain path; in Sarah and Eddie’s lives, they are led to love, forgiveness and closure. Their events start with a young teenage Sarah being in an accident where a younger girl died and continue with Sarah as an adult still trying to cope with her part in the tragedy. She meets Eddie; they have a wonderful week together but after he leaves on his vacation, she doesn’t hear from him again. I don’t want to spoil the story so will not divulge more. Rosie Walsh’s novel has very likable characters, a very good plot line and also manages to touch on subjects such as depression, mental illness, grief, and even Clowndoctors (which I did not know existed but love that they do) with sensitivity. There is romance of the great love kind, drama, hope and redemption. My only problem with the book was that all of the tragedy was put on Sarah when others were involved. Thanks to Penguin First to Read for an early copy.

Thank you, First to Read, for the advanced reader copy of 'Ghosted'. Oh, I loved his book! I read it in a single day, the perfect companion for when I was not feeling well. I won't go into details you can read on jacket covers and plot summaries - but I've had many books 'ruined' by their own predictability. I pride myself on being able to sniff out what's going to happen, and this book had me fooled many times, worried about the characters enough that I wanted to flip ahead and check on them. (I didn't). So much joy and heartbreak all in one book. You don't walk away feeling sad, but you don't walk away, either, with that saccharine feeling of a blissfully happy ending. It just feels real, because the characters feel real. 4.5 out of 5 stars. I will be looking forward to more from this author!

I read so many books that most times I can predict what will happen. I thought I knew where this book was going and then it took an unexpected turn. I thought this was a great read and would highly recommend it!

Ghosted was at once heartbreaking and uplifting. There were enough twists to keep you engaged and looking forward to the end. And who doesn't love a book with a happy ending? Thanks again First to Read for my advance copy.

Thank you to Penguin for the opportunity to read this book. For the most part I enjoyed Ghosted and was engaged with the story through all of the twists and turns. However, I found Sarah's behavior in the first half of the book off-putting and had a hard time warming to her due to this behavior. Also I did not feel like the characters were well fleshed out and in hind-sight understand some of that need in the case of Sarah and Eddie, however, it led to my not feeling terribly connected or invested in their story. 3.5/5

Posted on my blog - https://wordpress.com/post/livereadandprosper.wordpress.com/189 Posted on goodreads - https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2399635243 Thank you penguin for granting me this first to read early access! Sarah and Eddie have spent 7 perfect days together. They are completely in love and already start talking about what their future may hold. Sarah has to leave for a quick vacation and Eddie promises he will be waiting for her when she gets back. Problem is, he “ghosts” her. He doesn’t show up, he doesn’t call. Nothing. What happened to him? Their love seemed so perfect? Why didn’t he call? What went wrong? Sarah needed this relationship to work because she had never felt love like this, not even in her long marriage with her ex-husband! What’s a girl to do… This book had me all emotional! It brought back a ton of memories from my high school relationships of boys just going missing for days after confessing their love. The thoughts that run through your mind! I was right with Sarah the entire time. I wanted to be her best friend and help her through the mystery. I totally agreed with her through every thought. I felt for both of them. My heart poured out while reading this; something I was in dire need of a book to help me do. There’s nothing like an emotional read to make you feel human. The book jumps around a lot, so it’s something you have to really pay attention to when you read. I’m more of a person who loves a free-flowing story and would’ve loved to read this story in order, but it didn’t completely ruin the read for me. 4.5/5 Stars

I really liked this book. I thought that I had it all figured out and then the twist. I thought Sarah was on the verge of becoming annoying but then the story turned and she was saved from herself. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for a book about relationships, love, family and a little mystery. A great Beach read!

Ghosted is a lovely and absorbing novel with a uniquely modern twist on the oft told tale of doomed lovers. Walsh has written a mesmerizing page turner that seamlessly marries romance, humor, and pathos with a compelling mystery. I loved these characters and was eager to see how, and if, their love story could have a satisfying resolution in the face of deeply held secrets.

Ghosted was a book I so wanted to love but instead ended up just liking. First off, I went in with the wrong kind of expectations. I thought this was going to be more page-turning sensational thriller than it was. The story revolves around a couple who spend a week together and have a strong connection. However, then the dude just vanishes. The rest of the story then focuses on just what the heck happened and how the couple had a previous shared experience that is quite important. The story ended up being more romance/general fiction than thriller which isn't a bad thing. It was just different. I will say I thought I totally had the ending figured out, but there was an unexpected twist that I did not see coming at all. It's an interesting enough story, but if you're wanting more thrill with your vanishing lover, this isn't your jam. Read this book if - You like your romance with a side of "What the heck happened?" You need a good beach read that keeps you reading to figure out connections in stories.

I enjoyed the first 2/3 of this book but I was seriously annoyed by what others have called the twist. I think it was more of a trick or a device just to make the book more memorable. I hate an unreliable narrator and I don’t like an unreliable narrative either. However, I kept reading and I did enjoy the ending. So I had mixed feelings but overall, I liked it more than disliked it.

This book started out slow for me, but for some reason I just couldn't put it down. Before too long it had me completely hooked. I just had to know what happened to Eddie! Well, let me tell you, for once, I truly did not see the twists coming. The story wasn't what I was expecting but I did enjoy it. She really had me thinking- "what would I do?!" I can't even imagine.

Ghosted kept my attention from the start. With all the twists and turns of the plot it kept my attention. A wonderful read about people, their issues, and relationships. It included many issues we deal with as a society. Wonderful read!

The perfect summer read and not only. If you're looking for a fun past time during a hot or rainy weekend, this is it. The fast paced story can be devoured in 10h tops and you'll love the characters, the mysterious twists and the love story that builds up from the sad thriller. Although it plays with time. it's easy to follow and the modern tech bits are a great addition which everybody can relate to. The end isn't for everybody, the pace kind of slows, but I enjoyed it, it let me wrap my head around the story without having to always guess what's coming next. It's an addictive story, another 10 pages turn into 50 pages and one more page and the book ends.

This book was fast paced and a great quick read. I loved the characters and the twisting story that unfolded. It would make a fun summer read for any book lover.

GHOSTED starts as a romantic mystery and becomes, at times, a thriller masquerading as a mystery wrapped up as a romance. If that doesn’t quite make sense, then let me just say, the story is riveting and has enough twists and turns to keep readers glued to the page. Author Rosie Walsh does a nice job of keeping details vague until she needs them and the story works well because of it. If there is a bit too much romantic fantasy tossed in from time to time, it passes, and the story moves quickly. This tale is fast and timely, with a life overtaken by social media and texts. We can all relate. I enjoyed it enormously.

I love when a book surprises you with all the feels, and this one totally got me! Sarah and Eddie had a perfect week. They met by chance and, when it was over, they promised they'd see each other again. Only Eddie never called. Not only did he never call, he practically disappeared off the face of the earth. Sarah is distraught by his disappearance and is convinced something happened to him, so she starts to investigate. As she delves deeper into Eddie, she begins to lose herself. Everyone around her notices her weird and erratic behavior. Some of them try to talk her down from it, some of them indulge her. It doesn't matter to Sarah, though. She just keeps looking. I loved that Sarah is so real. Women are emotional creatures who will sometimes stop at nothing to get what they want. Sarah's desperation is something I know I can identify with and have felt before. There's always the need to know why something has happened and why someone might not feel the same way they did before. I loved that, for the most part, the story was one-sided. You didn't know Eddie's issues or what really happened to him. When Sarah starts receiving phone calls and messages to tell her to stay away you get the feeling that there is definitely more to the picture. Without giving too much away, I can say that this is a good story. There are so many little clues to watch for as you learn more about Sarah and Eddie and how they are truly connected. I was surprised when it all came to fruition but also happy with the end result. To me, this is not just a mysterious love story. It's a story about forgiveness in so many ways. You will want to read this one in July. Trust me.

I absolutely loved this book. At the beginning I wasn't so sure I would like Ghost, just because I am not a fan of books that keep going back and forth in time, but OMG I am so glad I kept reading. The author has several twist and turns that fit the book but keep you guessing. I can't remember the last book I read that had me saying, "Oh wow I was totally wrong". I don't want to say anymore because I'm afraid I will give something away. So I'll just end with, You definitely have to read this book!!!

Ghosted was a great fast paced read. It kept me guessing the entire time and could easily be devoured in one setting. I loved the plot and how quickly it moved along. I will say that I found Sarah to be a tad bit annoying at times. This book has a ridiculous plot, falling in love in a few short days and then pining for them. However I think the author did a wonderful job of telling this story in a realistic manor.

I loved this book! Reading this book you think the worst then you think you figured out the twist only to be wrong then go through this over again a few more times. I spent half the book ugly crying and was a bit traumatized. I can't wait for this to come out so I can start forcing people to read it.
