Wandering Souls


Loved it! 😍

For Drew, there has always been a clear line between the living and the dead...until her boyfriend disappears in a tragic accident, that is.

For as long as she can remember, Drew Harlow has been able to see the dead; from soft whisperings in her ear through the passing of each night, to ghostly apparitions dancing just around the edges of her vision, they are always hovering somewhere close by. Despite this, she's always been able to keep her head down, maintain a sense of normalcy, and take solace in the fact that there is a clear line separating her world from theirs--the living and the dead.

Until now.

After her boyfriend Shane is involved in a tragic accident, Drew's life is turned upside down as each day brings more questions than answers. In a desperate attempt to uncover what really happened that night, Drew begins digging only to end up with more truths than she bargained for--truths that could come at the cost of her own life.

"Her haunted hometown seeped into every inch of her skin like a sunburn."

There is so much about this story to love. The haunting atmosphere--shown starkly outwards as fog, rain and snow lash against a vibrant coastal setting--remains present through every aspect of the story the story as Drew struggles internally with grief and heartache, setting the tone for the beautiful gothic tale that follows. Rather than a story that twists and turns, Wandering Souls is one that gains momentum throughout as each chapter builds upon the last. Don't let that fool you however, dear reader--the mystery remains up until the very end!

Wandering Souls is an engaging WhoDunIt and a lovely homage to the 90's and early-aughts teen thrillers that graced both the big screen and home televisions alike. If you're a fan of classic thriller movies like I Know What You Did Last Summer or TV series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, this is the book for you! With a lovable cast of friends, frenemies and the occasional friendly ghost, this is a page-turner guaranteed to keep you guessing.

I work as an office assistant by day, and avid reader/writer by night! It's always been my ambition to write, & to tell the kinds of stories that I have always needed to hear in the hopes that it will comfort others the same way. I average 1-3 books a month, & love to discuss books through writing!
