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 malevolent spirit of the woman who killed Ian returns and she’ll stop at nothing to keep Riley from helping Ian find eternal peace.

My Thoughts
What would you do if you had found your one true love, but ultimately to save him you had to let him go?
This is a question that Riley Williams faces in “The Deepest Cut” as well as the people trying to stop her from saving the love of her life Ian. The relationship between Ian and Riley was so sweet and paced really nicely. Ian’s character was written very well and the more we learn about him the more real he seems. The same goes for Riley who is a very strong character and proves this by holding on and continuing to fight for life even through all of her emotional turmoil.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good paranormal romance with hot ghosts.


  1. I got this book in my IMM last week. I've been swamped with my TBR pile and haven't gotten to it, but your review definitely bumped it up the list a bit. Can't wait to start it!
