Megan’s twin sister Remy died in an accident nine years ago, and she’s been haunting her ever since. Knowing how crazy that sounds, Megan keeps this secret to herself and tries to lead a normal life. But when she takes a summer job at Land of Enchantment to keep an eye on her new boyfriend and his lovesick best friend, Samantha, she meets fellow employee Luke who can see Remy, too. Things get even twistier because Megan’s new friend Ari is sporting a massive crush on Luke, who seems to be developing a massive crush on Megan…making for a love triangle that’s positively possessed.

Megan wants to keep her distance from Luke, but when Remy’s visions get crazy violent; she knows she needs his help. Because someone’s definitely in danger...the only question is who?

My rating: ★★★★☆

This book was amazing!! I really liked it :) Especially with the modern fairy tale twist (that would be Snow White, if you care to know).

Megan has no idea what to do with her twin sister. Ever since the car accident, which killed her sister Remy, she has been able to see her ghost. But it’s been getting worse. Then she gets a job at Land of Enchantment (its kinda like Disney Land). One little problem: she hates that place!

Then why the hell would she get a job there? You might be asking.

Because Megan’s boyfriend, Ryan, works there along with his “best friend” Samantha. Megan just wants to keep an eye on him.

Then she meets Luke, a guy who works there and just happens to be able to see Remy as well. Megan is excited by this discovery! She needs help with Remy... she is just getting worse and worse throwing tantrums at the most unpredictable times. She keeps saying totally random things about someone being in trouble, but she never clearly states who. It’s quite frustrating -_- But Luke helps her :)

But things don’t go easy for Luke and Megan. You see, Ari is the daughter of the owners of the park, and she has this major crush on Luke, who may be developing feelings for Megan, who already has a boyfriend (Ryan), whose best friend (Sam) has feelings for him. Ahh, headache! Lol

Throughout the book, I felt really bad for Megan. On the on hand, she has Ryan who is really nice and totally worthy of being a boyfriend (well, except for the part where Sam is always where he is =/). On the other hand she has Luke who is totally sweet and he’s been helping Megan with Remy. She seriously had a tough choice there…though I like Luke a little better ;)

And Ari... boy did she need mental help! I swear, she is bipolar or something! One moment she is totally nice to Megan and the next she is telling Megan to say away from Luke... as if she owned him!! And she calls herself Megan’s friend *rolls eyes*

Overall, great book!!! I love a book that keeps twisting until it looks like a pretzel, lol :P
A must-read for anyone who likes fairy tale retellings :)
