Expected Publication: 1st May

BLURB from Goodreads
When recently-deceased Irene Dunphy decided to “follow the light,” she thought she’d end up in heaven or hell and her journey would be over.

Boy, was she wrong.

She soon finds that “the other side” isn’t a final destination but a kind of purgatory where billions of spirits are stuck, with no way to move forward or back. Even worse, deranged phantoms known as “Hungry Ghosts” stalk the dead, intent on destroying them. The only way out is for Irene to forget her life on earth—including the boy who risked everything to help her cross over, which she’s not about to do. 

As Irene desperately searches for an alternative, help unexpectedly comes in the unlikeliest of forms: a twelfth-century Spanish knight and a nineteenth-century American cowboy. Even more surprising, one offers a chance for redemption; the other, love. Unfortunately, she won’t be able to have either if she can’t find a way to escape the hellish limbo where they’re all trapped.

My first reaction is what a romantic looking cover. It really is attractive, I love the colours and the dreamy quality to the cover. I think its the sort of translucent effect with the person and also the landscape on the cover that makes it eye catching. Would it make me pick it from a book shelf to learn more? Yes I would pick it up. I think I'd kind of be drawn to it like a moth to a light!
The blurb then entices you more revealing just enough to make you want to know even more. So overall this is a great packaged book. Would I buy the book? Well as I have BK#1 to read, then yes I guess this one will be sneaking onto the "want to read" list!!
