One Hundred Candles by Mara Purnhagen

After the disturbing situation in Charleston, Charlotte Silver's life is finally settling down. She's got steady friends and even a boy or two interested in her. But this comfort is short-lived. Another creepy happening occurs on a mission with her folks, and things go downhill shortly after that. A weekend party makes things worse a few days later. Throw in the increasing fights and awkwardness between Charlotte's mom and dad, and it is going to be a really rough time!

Have you read Past Midnight? I liked it, and was looking forward to meeting more ghosts with Charlotte and the family. This sequel started off with a fairly spooky scene, but there weren't nearly the scares in this one as there were in the first book. Which was okay with me, honestly. It lent more time to get to know Charlotte and develop some of the relationships around her. I liked the premise of the ghost story - that of one hundred candles being lit over stories. Clever! Fans will definitely want to check out the short ebook Raising the Dead and then book three, Beyond the Grave, when it comes out in September.

Overall Rating: 3 Stars
