REVIEW: GHOSTED, BY ROSIE WALSH

Seven perfect days. Then he disappeared. A love story with a secret at its heart.

When Sarah meets Eddie, they connect instantly and fall in love. To Sarah, it seems as though her life has finally begun. And it’s mutual: It’s as though Eddie has been waiting for her, too. Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn’t call.

Sarah’s friends tell her to forget about him, but she can’t. She knows something’s happened–there must be an explanation.

Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she’s right. There is a reason for Eddie’s disappearance, and it’s the one thing they didn’t share with each other: the truth.

In the beginning, Ghosted seemed like a typical story about a fling that dropped off with no explanation.  But our protagonist was so convinced that she and Eddie had so much more in that one week together that she couldn’t give up.  She sent numerous messages, did deep searches, called upon the help of friends…and wouldn’t give up.  She even seemed to catch a glimpse of him here and there, even after she returned to the U.S.

What did it all mean?  Why does Sarah feel such a deep connection to Eddie?  As time passes, we see a few tidbits from his side of things and the details begin to fill in.  There was more to the story, but not all of it was good.  The past had come back to haunt them!

I kept turning the pages, hoping for more answers, and when I finally knew the whole truth, I held my breath, waiting to see what Eddie and Sarah would do.  A story that brought me to the edge…and then left me smiling with a very warm feeling.  4.5 stars.
