They can not rest until he’s stopped, but will their love be enough to save them once and for all?

This book first caught my attention when I saw the cover, and then I looked it up and really liked the sound of it. For a couple months now I've had my eye on this book, and I really, really want it. I think it might be a little gritty, and the setting--and where the romance seems to be at its core--is pretty intriguing, so the distance from me to when this book releases is much too far away.

Summer of Series Challenge

May 18, 2015

My TBR always has enough books to fill a black hole, and sometimes reading a lot of those books is hard because I need to prioritize review books first, and personal and pleasure books second. But then a reading challenge comes along that allows me to bump some books up on the priority list, and I have to say that the challenge is accepted. Hence the Summer of Series challenge, hosted by the uber cool Danielle at Love at First Page and Lili at Lili's Reflections!

This sounds kind of like Code Name Verity except it's a different World War and there are less prisoners of war and hopefully a lot less tears. Okay, so maybe it doesn't sound like Code Name Verity at all. BUT it is set in World War I with a BRITISH SPY who does go to Germany so, yeah, I want this book.

She meant to help a ghost...not unleash a curse.

Amelia Dupree hasn’t seen the Woman in White since the night her brother died. 

The ghost seems to have disappeared from the woods surrounding Asylum, Pennsylvania—that is, until Charlie Blue moves into the creepy old MacAllister House next door. Amelia can’t help liking him, even though she spent her childhood thinking his grandmother was a witch. And she definitely can’t ignore the connection between his arrival and the Woman in White’s return. 

Then Amelia learns that the Woman in White is a prisoner, trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead. Devastated by the idea that her brother could be suffering a similar fate, Amelia decides to do whatever it takes to help the Woman in White find peace--and Charlie agrees to help her.

But when Amelia’s classmates start to drown in the Susquehanna River, one right after another, rumors swirl as people begin to connect the timing of Charlie’s arrival with the unexplained deaths. As Charlie and Amelia uncover the dark history of Asylum, they realize they may have unleashed an unspeakable evil. One they have to stop before everything they love is destroyed.
