Summary (Goodreads):
Ivy’s moved to her new stepfather’s cold castle in the wilds of Scotland, where strange things begin to happen: the ancient walls spilling their dark secrets.
Rescue comes when she meets Logan, a gorgeous, elusive boy – a ghost, who has haunted the castle grounds for decades. Ivy is immediately drawn to him … but Logan is not the only spirit around, and soon Ivy finds herself at the heart of a dangerous mystery.

Ivy Calhoun moves with her mother to Glenmorrag the home of her stepfather Niall.
She doesn't really know Niall and his mother is a judgmental angry old lady + there's a ghostly voice keeps telling her to leave. As it turns out the voice belongs to Logan Munro who is just trying to save Ivy from a terrible fate. 

Ivy acts both sensibly and like a teenager trying to find herself. She knows she can't just leave the castle given that she's sixteen and in a country she barely knows so she sets out to solve the mystery of Logan's death. One of the main ways she does this is by talking to her new group of friends. She slowly begins to feel she actually fir in - which she didn't do back at her hometown.

I also really loved how they spoke like they actually do in Scotland like saying "Aye" (which I can't help but say all the time now XD ) instead of yes. It really helped bring out there accents and how Ivy helps at understanding some of the words that was well done. 

It was definitely a light fun paranormal romance and its super quick and easy to get through & can I just say how perfect Logan was? He WAS so lovely and I really enjoyed Ivy and Logan's relationship and the trust they had for each other and how they work together to fight the evil haunting Glenmorrag! I keep smiling at the development between Ivy and her stepdad it was great.

My only complaint is that I wished it was longer! The author could have made more happen for example the background story/history and it would have helped the ending too if it was 150-200 pages longer. Because Ivy get one solution handed to her and stumbles across another and everything is solved. That was a big downfall  for me - I expected a lot more action and history or anything! And that is mostly the reason I'm giving this 4 stars.


  1. Sounds like a good read, though I also dislike when the author makes it too easy for the characters at the ending. Like, we went through ALL THAT just for it to end that way? Come on, make them struggle for it. ;)
    And wordl-building is definitely a must, but not too much is needed. Great review, Emma!
