Review: Between Seasons by Aida Brassington

SUMMARY: Patrick Boyle dies in the fall of 1970, just days before he's due to report for the Vietnam War draft, which seems like a good thing until he realizes he's stuck in the house with no indication of when he'll be escorted to heaven. And after his parents leave the house, he's trapped without company -- until a mysterious woman who can channel his memories buys the house forty years later. The spring brings with it new life, but falling in love with the new owner may only bring heartbreak to them both.

REVIEW: Oh man, did I love this story! I've read stories about people being stuck in the afterlife many times, but this was so different and unique...and totally bizarre. Between Seasons is so clever and imaginative. I thought I would get bored with following Patrick around for awhile but there was still so many little things to keep me intrigued. Then enters Sara. She's the new owner with a trouble past and a family that doesn't understand her. I loved her character and she seemed so genuine and honest. This story envelops a heartfelt romance unlike an others I have read. When I finished this book I had to just sit there and reflect on everything for awhile. are left hanging a bit. I cannot wait for the sequel North of Frost though, and I'm sure anyone who reads this will feel the same!
