The haunting third book in the Best Selling Visitors Series.

“When I first moved here I was still a girl who cherished the normality of teen life. Now, after being here a year I had come to love a boy who was both strong and courageous. I made real friendships that would last even after death. The selfish girl my grandmother warned me of becoming had vanished. A girl who stood tall, with the powers to see the dead and help those in need, appeared in her place.”

In Brylee’s world, nothing is normal. She sees and speaks with the dead and, at seventeen years old, she already has a full plate. She’s in her senior year of high school and college is just around the corner, but only if she learns to control her gifts and survive in the land of the living.

She has succeeded in ridding her boyfriend, Ephraim, from the Brown family curse, but, in the end, her best friend loses her life. Now a whole slew of new problems present itself and, like always, Brylee is tempted to run for the hills. With Ephraim at her side, she must come to grips with the reality that she is not an average girl and she never will be.

What will happen when the town turns on her? Or, better yet, when a body is unearthed in her backyard? The choices that Brylee must make will determine whether she has a future or nothing at all.

~ Christy's Top Ten Ways To Spend A Day Off ~

I am a stay at home mom when I am not a writer. Some may say that I 'always' have a day off because I stay at home, but that's simply not the case. I may be home but there is a three year old that I must take care off. So on the very rare occasion that I get time to myself this is a list of the Top Ten ways I spend that time to myself:

10. If its a nice day, I will go for a walk. My library has a walking path and four loops make up a mile. Exercise baby! 

9. Go to Target and blow money I don't have. Yup, I love me someTarget. Sometimes I'll walk around the store and browse while I drink my Starbucks. Totally exciting, right?

8. Go fishing with my husband and kids. I grew up in a place where we didn't go fishing, ever! So when I moved to New Jersey I learned how. My husband is an avid fisherman and hunter. I like catching more than him.

7. Crochet. I enjoy making hats, scarves and other cute stuff for friends.

6. Go to the library. I am obsessed with books and my library feeds that addiction. When I can go there without my kids its a huge bonus. I can sometimes be in there for hours.

5. Eat out with friends. I enjoy good food. My friends enjoy it too. So it's a bonus if I can go out to eat with them and maybe have a glass of wine. 

4. Go out on a date with my husband. Very rarely do my hubby and I get to go on a date. So when we do we go eat or go to the movies.

3. Watch T.V. I'm a huge Supernatural fan! I also love Grimm. While I do not have cable I do stream Netfix. It's almost problematic for me because I can sometimes spend hours watching Dean and Sam fight demons. I do love me some Dean!

2. Scour Facebook. I'm not proud of this one.

1. Read!!! I'm a huge book nerd. When I get time to myself this is the number one thing I will do with my free time. Books are a huge part of my life.

       “Branson!” Miss Hailey shouted at me from the front of the room while tapping her black ballet flats harshly against the floor. I hadn’t listened to a thing she had said, of course, so I just smiled at her. 
       “Yes Miss?” I said in the sweetest, most innocent voice.
       “Why are you in my class if you’re not going to pay attention?” 
       Whoa! Ephraim was totally right about her being strict. “I love this class Miss. I was just worried about the storm is all. I have never experienced anything like this before,” I lied. 
       “Well,” she sighed. “I will forgive that. No one likes hurricanes, but they don’t stop the learning process.” 
       “Unless the hurricane kills you.” I looked up to see Kayla sitting on top of the teacher’s desk. I fought back the urge to laugh when she walked towards me. I sure hoped she wouldn’t mess with me now. She sat in the empty seat next to me and tapped her fingers on the desk. 
       “I always hated her, did you know that?” 
       I shook my head. How did she expect me to communicate with her in public?
       “I’m here to talk to you about something important. Can you give me five minutes?” I raised my hand to excuse myself to the bathroom and Miss Hailey obliged. I sped walked to the girl’s room as Kayla skipped behind me. I pushed open a stall and threw my hands up in the air. “What the heck Kayla? Here, at school?” 
       She laughed. 
       “Seriously? I know something’s up, but why not wait until after school?” She leaned against the stall and sighed. “I told you things are weird with me lately. I don’t know what’s happening but I can feel a change coming. I… I…” Her mad rush to speak was suddenly interrupted by a choking sound coming from her mouth. 
       “Kayla!” I rushed to her and my hands went through her body. She wasn’t solid like normal. Something was wrong! Kayla had always felt like flesh and blood to me. Never like a ghost. 
       Suddenly her mouth opened and water poured out onto my feet, splashing my shoes and legs. I still tried but failed to help her. She was choking on water and, if I wasn’t mistaken, she was drowning. I was helpless and didn’t know what to do. Then before I could come up with an answer she uttered one word, “Diary.” 
       “Diary? Okay, where?” Any clue besides diary would have been perfect, but I was helpless now because she suddenly vanished.
