Book two in this slight, but charming series. Once again I find that they could have been one book, but they are broken into discrete books, and although this one is sandwiched, it does stand on its own, although not as well. Warning: Spoilers if you haven’t read book two. When the story opens, Emma is now a full fledged Ghostkeeper, and attending a prestigious private school in Massachusetts. It is the funeral of the boy she had been dating, who died trying to save her from the evil ghost Neos. The rest of the book, and I’m keeping this short, so can combine the two reviews of the final two books in my blog on WordPress, deals with her learning more about her powers, with her relationship with Bennett, and with the arrival of Bennett’s parents, whom Emma has never met, although she is staying in their house. Another encounter with Neos leaves them reeling, and they search for answers on how to defeat them, with a new guardian, Simon, and a new guy Lukas. And she has to deal with the betrayal of someone close to her. It retains the charm of the original book, the ever changing “family” that they have put together, and an assortment of interesting and caring side characters, along with humor, and typical teen concerns. The books are sweet, warm, and like a cup of hot chocolate at night.
