The ghost/demon/curse aspect of the plot was very complex and well put together, giving us quite a mystery to solve and then a huge problem to fix. That is besides the need to fix the cat-shifter culture in Broken Heart.
It is a lovely story and I enjoyed it a lot!
The Setting - is still Broken Heart, Oklahoma. A few years have come and gone since everyone became undead and things are sort of settling into a normal routine of sudden-life-or-death and peace-and-quiet. This time around, you get more of a sense of where the town came from; those deep down roots behind why the town is cursed. You know what curse I'm talking about.
The Characters - oh Lord have mercy! It took me a little bit to get into the "hoity-toity" voice of cultured Elizabeth Bretton. I was so used to the sarcastic, down and dirty kind of women like Phoebe and Jessica that Elizabeth kinda threw me at the beginning. I had a scare two chapters in that, *gasp*, I might not like Elizabeth! Never fear. She wins you over though it's totally Tez you're rooting for. Come on, sexy smexy were-jag? And he goes all cave man to her social etiquette. It's a riot on the page. Other staples of the Broken Heart community appear, as well as some distant relations no one ever expected to visit.
The Plot - seven books into a series, a very connected series where each book builds off of another, you really have to wonder what else you can do? But Michele pulls it out of a hat in Cross Your Heart. I was a little skeptical when I read that it was a ghost story, kinda a mystery thing. Mysteries are okay, but I don't usually like them as much as adventure stories. However, there is so much of the history of Broken Heart twined around the mystery that it helps give the whole series a more grounded feel.
If you're looking for an enjoyable read, you found it in this book.
If your looking for historical accuracy, intense characters, or the like....this is not your book.
If you just want a good read that is light hearted, with a little romance thrown in (don't forget the "Vampire" element)....then this will be fun.
