Waiting on Wednesday (21)--Ruined by Paula Morris
Release Date: August 1, 2009 from Point
Rebecca couldn't feel more out of place in New Orleans, where she comes to spend the year while her dad is traveling. She's staying in a creepy old house with her aunt. And at the snooty prep school, the filthy-rich girls treat Rebecca like she's invisible. Only gorgeous, unavailable Anton Grey seems to give Rebecca the time of day, but she wonders if he's got a hidden agenda. Then one night, in Lafayette Cemetery, Rebecca makes a friend. Sweet, mysterious Lisette is eager to talk to Rebecca, and to show her the nooks and crannies of the city. There's just one catch: Lisette is a ghost. A ghost with a deep, dark secret, and a serious score to settle. As Rebecca learns more from her ghost friend - and as she slowly learns to trust Anton Grey-she also uncovers startling truths about her own history. Will Rebecca be able to right the wrongs of the past, or has everything been ruined beyond repair?
I love New Orleans and I love ghost stories. In fact, when I went to New Orleans years ago, my friend and I took a haunted tour of the French Quarter. I think we even had some ghostly encounters, of course, I'd had a drink or two at the time, so I can't be positive. Anyway, this book looks awesome and I am totally digging that cover, too. Oh great book gods....feel free to bestow this book upon me, it will not go unappreciated. Never hurts to ask right?!
Can't wait to see what everyone else is waiting for this week. By the way Waiting on Wednesday is brought to you by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

I have just read Voodoo Season set in New Orleans and loved it. There is something special about New Orleans and I always attracted to books about the place. So this one will definitely go on my list. I think the books you find are becoming a regular feature on my Friday Finds around the blog.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to read this one. I first read about it two weeks ago and immediately got interested because the ghost's name is my name too. :)ReplyDelete
