I didn't consider this a ghost story, but rather a love story with a ghost as one character. It was a fast, enjoyable read.
(I was a beta reader for this book, and it was so good I just bought so that I would have it in my permanent collection. It is definitely a keeper!)
I was a beta-reader for this book and this was also the first book of Ms. Bowersock's that I've ever read. I'll definitely be on the lookout for her other work from now on.
I liked how Ms. Bowersock explored Matthew's selfish, self-centered tendencies and then allowed us to see enough of his childhood to understand why he was this way. He was a nice enough guy who didn't realize how anti-social he had become until he is faced with losing the woman that he loves. I had a hard time liking or sympathizing with his character.
Janie, our ghost, was an interesting character who has a spiritual aspect without bringing in religious views. Janie seems to be the only one who can get Matthew to consider breaking down the walls to allow introspection of his life. I felt more empathy for her than I did Matthew. The fact that I felt more empathy for all of the female characters than any of the male characters probably says more about me than the book itself.
Every character was well developed and the story is told through Matthew's eyes so we get a male-centric perspective of all of his relationships; from his mother, to his absentee father, to his girlfriend, and his employees, which was interesting. The dialogue was well written and believable. I found this to be a thought provoking read.
FYI: There was a small amount of adult language. Any sex was behind closed doors.
Format/Typo Issues: I noticed no editing issues at all.
