This book was a #1 New York Times Bestseller.

Jeremy Marsh is a science journalist who specializes debunking the supernatural. He travels to a small town in North Carolina to find the real cause of ghostly apparitions in the town cemetery. To his chagrin, he finds himself falling in love Lexie Darnell, the grand-daughter of the town psychic.

Thank you Tabby-cat-owner I got the book yesterday I will start the book as soon as I finish the other bookring that I read. To tell you the truth I will try to read both books at the same time. Thanks that you let me take part at this international bookray.

I finished the book while I was in Tornto, Canda. I actually really liked the story line because it focused a lot on Jeremy's job (as a journa-list/ghost hunter) and there was a little bit of mystery involved. As for the characters, I didn't have a hard time accepting their attraction. True Believer was enchanting, as well, and it kept my interest throughout the story. I am continually amazed at his insight into the female psyche.

RELEASE NOTES:

Enjoy the book

Thanks so much. I'm really looking forward to this one.

Journal Entry 7 by KrazyBlonde from Auckland, Auckland Province New Zealand on Friday, August 22, 2008
Enjoyed this one so much. It's been to several destinations as I took it on a cruise with me. Sending to the next on the list in the next few days. Thanks again :)

Arrived today. Thanks, krazyblonde (and everyone before) for sending it on and thanks tabby-cat-owner for the ring. I'm looking forward to reading another Nicholas Sparks (so far I've liked all his books which I read.)

Journal Entry 9 by DEESSE from Erstein, Alsace France on Saturday, October 25, 2008
I enjoyed reading this book like I did all the other Nicholas Sparks books so far. And I'd like to read the sequel, too (there was a nice preview on the last pages). Even though it's always a bit predictable (boy meets girl, they fall in love, they nearly always cook together - this time it was tomato sauce, not steaks! - and finally, after some detours, they live together happily ever after...).
I like every now and then just to relax with a nice romantic novel - besides, there are always some funny passages or very nice word-creations with lots of hyphens which make me smile while reading.

I copied two quotations which made me think: "Yes, that's so true!":

"Believe me - I've seen what it takes to be a good parent. Having kids means taking care of them, raising them, loving and supporting them, and none of those things have anything to do with who makes them one night in the bedroom or the experience of being pregnant." says Lexie on page 240.

"She wasn't naive enough to deny that modern culture had its own seductions. Be famous and rich and beautiful and go to exclusive parties: 'only then will you be happy.' It was, in her opinion, a bunch of hogwash, the song of the desperate. If it wasn't, why were so many rich, famous, and beautiful people taking drugs? Why couldn't they seem to hold a marriage together? Why were they always getting arrested? Why did they seem so unhappy when removed from the spotlight?" (p. 269 f.)

Thank you, tabby-cat-owner for this bookring and sorry that I took a bit longer, but I'll be moving to a new appartment tomorrow, so there wasn't really much time for reading. Thanks everyone for sending it on.

The book is already - since yesterday - on its way to hetku77 in Finland (in Tampere, not in Nokia).

29.10. The book arrived by mail today. Thank you, DEESSE!

3.1.2009 I finally finished the book over the holidays. I had a hard time to get into the story, but when I finally had more time to sit down and read, it started going better. This was a typical book by Sparks, so no surprises there. It wasn't that cheeky either, as some of them are. Quite entertaining to read and I also enjoyed the mystery part of the story.

I pmed pinkagirl earlier today for her address.
