Overview

His blood for a cure. It's a cruel and deadly bargain...
Nine curses. Nine weeks to live. Joel Hatcher has inherited more than a family legacy. It's a time bomb that's ticking down to the inevitable: his own death. But the curse won't die with him. Unless he can find a way to break the cycle, his younger brother becomes the next victim.
In the throes of the third curse, the Painful Pox, Joel makes a last-ditch decision to seek the help of a young spiritualist.
One look into Joel's suffering eyes, and "Madame Eugenie" finds herself torn between doing the right thing and fulfilling her most secret wish-bring her husband Adam back from the dead. Joel's cursed blood is the missing ingredient in her resurrection rituals, and Adam's spirit whispers seductively that there's only one way to get it: steal it.
As Gen and Joel unearth his family's past to track down a cure, they come closer to each other, and to a horrible truth. To live, Joel must lose everything. Up to and including the woman he has grown to love.
Warning: This book contains curses, sacrifices, a ghostly husband, a crazy cat and a love that defies all odds.

    This story would make a great movie. Intrigue and mystery are there from the start. You will witness nine curses. The story moves out of town as research into family history reveals clues.

    I loved the woman with the "button eyes". The rush is on to stop the curses. As more is carefully revealed, the story heads at a very fast pace to a surprising ending. A satisfying read for anyone.
