Book Review: Ghost Flower by Michele Jaffe

Eve, a runaway, finds a new job at a coffee shop on the outskirts of Tuscon. When she's approached by two wealthy teens who claim she bears an uncanny resemblance to their missing cousin Aurora, her life takes a turn for the dark and mysterious. 

Drawn into a scheme to win Aurora's inheritance, Eve finds herself impersonating the girl, who disappeared three years ago on the night her best friend Elizabeth died. But when Liza's ghost begins to haunt Eve, doing harm to the people close to her under the guise of "protecting" her, Eve finds herself in a nightmare maze of lies and deception that leads her to question even her own identity. 

She realizes her only chance is to uncover the truth about what happened the night Liza died, and to find Liza's killer - before she's next.

My Review       10 out of 10

I have to admit that I was 50/50 when I went into reading this book as I was not sure whether this was my kind of story as it seemed like a bit of a murderish mystery, which is something that I usually do not tend to go for when picking my next read but this is one of those occasions where the cover actually won me over!  The cover is so amazing that I thought I should give this a go and I am so glad that I did. 

There were a lot of twists and turns in this story, it is actually very hard to explain  what is great about this book without giving something away (which I won't, I promise!).    I loved the character of Eve, a very strong character who has a great instinct for what she should be doing and actually following her instincts.  This story was very much one of those where you meet all the characters and then immediately start to accuse each and everyone of them of having something to do with the disappearance of Aurora.

Such an amazing story that I would highly recommend for all of you who likes a good mystery with a touch of supernatural as well....

Best wishes
