Synopsis:

They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Whispering Pines. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse. Sixteen-year-old Shiloh Ravenwolf is a heritage witch from the Broussard family, a family both destined and cursed. When she takes a summer job at Ravenhurst Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and immediately becomes spellbound by his charms. Finally, Shiloh's met someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent may be the next victim on the supernatural hit list. And Shiloh is the only person with the power to save him. Complicated much?
It sucks to have a destiny, especially since Shiloh would rather spend her summer being a normal girl who worries about clothes and boys, not the supernatural. But she’s never been normal and the stranger things become the more her own magical senses awaken. With cryptic messages from a pesky wraith, she will begin to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist, and decide how much she's willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.
Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.
My thoughts:
This is definitively a book in my taste. I got sucked in right away by the story and the way Sherry writes. I just could not stop reading. This is the first of it´s kind that I have read and therefore I was very curious of what I would think about it. And here we have it; I love it!
So to the characters, I love Shiloh! She is both the shy girl and at the same time she is extremely tuff. She is beautiful without knowing it which i adore. She has a lot of weird things happening to her and her friends but she keeps her head up all of the time. She attracts the hottest guy in town whose name is Trent Donovan.
Trent is hot and sensitive and at the same time he´s a real bad boy. He hides his feelings behind this facade. This whole story was new and exciting with dysfunctional families, a different love-story and most of all a real nail biter. This book will give you some laughs and I was constantly surprised of what was going to happen!
