Kat Preston doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not because she’s never seen one, but because she saw one too many. Refusing to believe is the only way to protect herself from the ghost that tried to steal her life. Kat’s disbelief keeps her safe until her junior year at McTernan Academy, when a research project for an eccentric teacher takes her to a tiny, private island off the coast of Connecticut.

The site of a grisly mystery, the Isle of Acacia is no place for a girl who ignores ghosts, but the ghosts leave Kat little choice. Accompanied by her research partner, Evan Kingsley, she investigates the disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe on their wedding night in 1886. Evan’s scientific approach to everything leaves Kat on her own to confront a host of unbelievables: ancestral curses, powerful spells, and her strange connection to the ghosts that haunt Castle Creighton.

But that’s all before Kat’s yanked through a magic portal and Evan follows her. When the two of them awaken 129 years in the past with their souls trapped inside the bodies of two wedding guests, everything changes. Together, Kat and Evan race to stop the wedding-night murders and find a way back to their own time—and their own bodies—before their souls slip away forever.

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by K.C. Tansley
The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables Book #1)Do you believe in ghosts? Do you like ghost stories with haunting legends, poorly formed curses, old castles, mysterious murders and disappearances? How about if it were all in the name of love and the clock is ticking for another death one hundred and twenty-nine years later? Only one girl can unlock the mystery and break the curse, but it means revealing a secret she has kept hidden for years, or does someone know her secret already? Will the ghosts Kat has been ignoring finally break through her shields and drag her into their realm of darkness?

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by K.C. Tansley takes us on a journey through time and dimensions to reveal the truth of a curse crafted long ago that seems never-ending. Tragic, haunting and filled with witchcraft, one unlikely group of students find more than great firsthand information for a paper they are working on. Mixing like oil and water, Kat and Evan are forced to work on this project together along with others hand selected by their professor, but when their very lives and souls are on the line as they are tumbled back in time and into the bodies of a newly married couple, only their eye-witness account of what happened that fateful night and a “friendly ghost”can help to unravel the truth and end the curse.

K.C. Tanlsey has brought all the atmosphere of ghost stories to life in a riveting read that promises to entertain from start to finish. There is a steady flow, lots of mystery and, of course ghosts, the only things missing are the campfire and the marshmallows!

I received this ARC edition from K.C. Tansley in exchange for my honest review.
