Overview

Jeremy Marsh is a born skeptic and a science journalist who specializes in debunking the supernatural. When he hears about ghostly apparitions in a cemetery in Boone Creek, North Carolina, he leaves his beloved New York City for this small, rural town-and what his instincts tell him could make a great story. What he doesn't plan on is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, who is sure of one thing: her future is here in Boone Creek, close to the people she loves. Now, if the young lovers are to be together, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows in New York, or do something he could never do before... take a giant leap of faith.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
After co-writing his first work of nonfiction with his brother, Micah (Three Weeks with My Brother), Sparks is back with another novel about finding one's true love. Jeremy Marsh is a science writer who specializes in exposing supernatural frauds and hoaxes. Following some flashy national exposure, the New Yorker is invited to investigate mysterious lights in an old cemetery in little Boone Creek, NC. In a classic romance plot, the attractive yet sensitive Jeremy is attracted to the beautiful yet stubborn town librarian, Lexie Darnell, who is also the granddaughter of a local diviner. Both Jeremy and Lexie are skeptical people-but not about the same things. Despite some nice plot twists, the mysteries and conflicts are resolved in largely predictable ways that will still satisfy Sparks's many fans. Purchase wherever the author is popular.
