Teaser Tuesday (#33)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Title: The Moment Collector (AKA The Vanishing Season)
Publication Date: August 7th 2014        
Publisher: Orchard Books
 A haunting mystery, romance in the vein of The Lovely Bones by New York Times bestselling author.
"The yard of this house is a graveyard of moments and everything left behind is a clue. And I am here to dig."

There's a ghost haunting 208 Water Street. She doesn't know who she was, or why she's still here. She does know that she is drawn to Maggie, the new girl in town, and her friends - beautiful, carefree Pauline and Liam, the boy who loves her.

But the ghost isn't all that's lurking in Gill Creek... Someone is killing young girls all across the county. Can the ghost keep these three friends safe? Or does she have another purpose?

A key is buried under the front stairs of 208 Water Street. Scorched on one side, was it in a fire? Who lost it, and when?
For me, it's a clue, a piece of the past. Because the yard of this house is a graveyard of moments, and everything left behind is a reminder: sand paper, a bracelet, a love note, some letters, a match, a movie stub, a postcard. All of Door County is a burial ground. All the world. And I am here to dig.

I'm around half way through it so far, and though it did suck me in from that preface- I mean, how could that not? Despite that, it didn't grip me all that much in the beginning, until now, but the writing is beautiful. :)  Scratch that. I just finished it and oh, the feelings.
