Angelina's Secret - Lisa Rogers This is such a neat idea! To actually explore the idea of people seeing and talking to ghosts being viewed as mentally unstable. You always have to wonder with the paranormal why this isn't actually at least hinted at, because when I am reading I often wonder what I would think of someone in my life if they actually experienced the paranormal, so hats of to Ms. Rogers for exploring this! It is also worth mentioning that this is a paranormal that can stand on its own merits rather than being centered on a romantic connection. While I love romance in my paranormal, it is sometimes refreshing when it takes a back seat. Instead, Angelina's Secret focuses on family connections, and Angelina's relationship with Josie. Speaking of Josie, I really liked her character. I love elderly folks, and especially when they are incorporated well into a story that I am reading. I think they add another dimension to the plot that cannot be fully explored through the protagonist or their parents. I actually enjoyed some of the secondary characters like Sam, Josie and Koby more than Angelina. I would love to have a brother like that--he is so protective and they have a tight relationship. I appreciate how he tried to see her side and not just jump to conclusions, while still wanting what is best for her. Not to say that I didn't like Angelina, she was a nice host to the story. I finished this in one sitting!Review from Blkosiner's Book Blog: http://blkosiner.blogspot.com
