Whisper (Lakeview #2) by Stacey R. Campbell

They should have left the journal where it was hidden.  Reading it was dangerous...

Green Darner Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This is a ghostly tale with a bit of Gothic romance thrown in.  It seems the daughter of the school superintendent drowned in the lake when she was on her way to talk to her father.  She had something important to tell him.

Leigh is acting as a big sister to Halle who is a new student and Leigh's friend's sister.  When Halle tells her she feels a presence in her room, she thinks it's her imagination.  At least she does until it visits her!  When they are helping clean the attic, Halle finds a hidden journal.  The ghostly presence gets more visible and more vocal once they start reading her diary.  She wants them to complete her quest and find the treasure she hid.

Halle invites Calum to help them find the treasure.  Leigh and Calum don't get along so Leigh is not excited about that.  I enjoyed watching the couple negotiate their relationship as they go along.  I also enjoyed the mix of ghostly adventure and romance. While this is written for young adults, I had a good time reading it.  It's a sweet story.  Why not give it a try?
