The Deepest Cut by J.A. Templeton Review

Publication Date: October 1, 2011
Publisher: Self Published
Format: E-book
Page Count: 304 pages
Source: Bought
Series: Mackinnon Curse #1


Sixteen-year-old Riley Williams has been able to see ghosts since the car crash that took her mother’s life and shattered her family. Guilt-ridden over the belief that she’s somehow responsible for her mom’s death, Riley is desperate to see her mother’s elusive spirit to gain her forgiveness.

When her father moves the family to Scotland so they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn’t get worse––that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into friendship, and soon Riley’s falling hard for Ian.

Riley believes her gift could help Ian end the curse that has kept him tied to the land for centuries, but that would mean letting him go forever and she’s not sure she is strong enough to do that. As if her life wasn’t complicated enough, the spirit of the woman who killed Ian returns and she’ll stop at nothing to keep Riley from helping Ian find eternal peace.


I’ve been meaning to read this but never had the time to buy it but it’s free right now on Amazon as an e-book.

16-year-old Riley can see ghosts. This happened after a car accident where she survived and her mom died. After this whole mess, her dad, brother, and Riley move to Scotland. In Scotland, she meets Ian, a cursed ghost. He caught her cutting herself and then you know how this goes down.

Not only she sees ghosts but this crazy psycho ghost chick named Laria is haunting to the extremes. Never in my reading life have I ever read a book where a ghost goes to the extremes of hurting and making Riley stay away.

Falling in love with a ghost isn’t easy. Honestly if it was me I’d be a little freaked since my worst fears is paranormal stuff in real life (ghosts, demons, monsters, etc.) But J.A. Templeton makes it flow easy and nice. The ending was bittersweet. I didn’t like what the author did but further reading it seemed appropriate. Not the ending I’d expected to be honest.
