This was a buddy read with Lucy, Wendy, and SubCat, and before anyone gets the idea that we picked this to tear it apart, we were all really excited to start this I have to say though, that I hated this book This had so much potential to be good a controversial topic, a girl who can see and talk to ghosts, Scotland and an old inn and castle for a setting and yet it fell ridiculously short If you only read the synopsis you could skip the first third of the book, because not much else happens Afte [...]
If you thought Anna Dressed in Blood was scary It has Nothing on this one Don t get me wrong I really enjoyed Anna and thought it was creepy and a lot of fun But seriously scary Not really The Deepest Cut gives us an actual spine chilling ghost story that will make your hair stand on end Kind of like the equivalent of this fotokristallrod mov0Riley has been able to see ghosts since her mom died a few months ago To start over, her family moves to Scotland in a great big house that used to be an i [...]

I really need to stop rating books right after I read them I find that I am often too generous with the ones I truly disliked and later bump them down a star.The Deepest Cut could have been great It was an interesting idea that was held back by the writing style and the characterization of the leads It s not often in a book where you end up truly disliking the main characters but that happened for me with this one.Riley Williams and her family have moved to Scotland to escape their past Her moth [...]
If you re a fan of the tv shows Ghost Whisper, Medium and Vampire Diaries then you will love this book It has a feel of Ghost Whisper and Medium because the heroine of the story is able to see and talk to ghosts In addition, it has a feel of Vampire Diaries without the vampires, no vampires in this book I say it s a feel of that show in the aspect of the teenagers, witches, diaries, a crush on a guy whose old, and history coming full circle in the future present.Riley Riley is the heroine of th [...]
I really, REALLY liked enjoyed this story I ve read some of the other reviews where people didn t like how the love between Ian Riley happened so quickly I guess I just find it ironic that people choose to buy into a love story happening WITH a ghost, but it just can t happen fast LOL Haven t we all met someone who sparked our interest, or made us feel things immediately, without any rhyme or reason Or been drawn pulled toward someone we just met Things like that can and do happen everyday, so t [...]
4.5 starsThe Deepest Cut is one of those books I was really nervous about going into For those of you who know me, know I don t do ghost well, but I still like the challenge I want to like them That s why I m so happy to say that I loved this book It has the perfect combination of freaky and heart I had a blast reading this After the death of her mother, Riley Williams has a gift She can see ghosts When her father gets a new job in Scotland , Riley and her brother Shane are staring over and in a [...]
Riley is involved in a car crash with her mother, who dies, and now has the gift of seeing spirits Her father moves them to Scotland from Portland for a change of scenery and she encounters lots of spirits good and bad even getting her instalove happening with one of them.Yes it s all very silly And at times laughable But for some reason I quite liked it LOLIt is a short book and ends on a hilarious cliffhanger although I think it s actually meant to be suspenseful so perhaps I ll get to book tw [...]
OMG, OMG, OMG I LOVED this book There are so many things that came together perfectly to make this such an awesome, addicting story This is the first book by Templeton that I ve read, and I m fast becoming a huge fan of her writing This story throws you into a setting that is bone chillingly creepy and intriguing at the same time, and I found myself immediately drawn to it And where the characters could have fallen short of my expectations due to the exciting plot, they actually left me pleasant [...]
This book started somewhat strong and ended with a WTF.Riley, her younger brother, and Father make a move to Scotland Mother has just died in a tragic car accident and Riley is the survivor Riley can see spirits in the world now and she tries desperately to hide all signs of her ability since she s been treated like a mental patient since revealing this.The Characters The relationship between Riley and her brother, Shane, is the high point What I mean by this is that it s the most realistic rela [...]
I stumbled upon the Labor Day Indie Book Blowout and this was the first book to catch my eye, admittedly because I think the cover is beautiful I was instantly hooked by the Kindle sample and quickly purchased it Can I just say this book is a total steal at 0.99 As for the story I really enjoyed it A fairly quick read that was creative and interesting and I guess you could say delightfully creepy I really like Riley, and even liked her foul mouthed little brother P This leads me to something els [...]

melissa413readsalotI am ashamed to say I have had this book since 2012 That is what happens with my stacks and my kindle books AnyhooI could not put this book down The book is set in beautiful Scotland This is a ghost story, a ghost story in Scotland full of beautiful land, creepy castles, inns and cemeteries There is some nice romance going on as well, nothing narly though So Riley and her brother Shane are moved from Portland to Scotland after their dad takes a job there and they move to a tow [...]
I loved this story It was bittersweet and passionate Riley was easy to relate to I would think to most teen girls and even to women From the blurb, it sounds like cutting is a huge part of the book, and it is a big issue, but it s not at all what dominates this story I understood how Riley could find a release in the control of cutting, using it as her outlet after her mother s death She had a lot of guilt inside her, blaming herself for the accident But as the story progresses, we see Riley gro [...]
After a car crash, Riley Williams loses her mom yet gains the ability to see ghosts Her father decides to move the family to Scotland for his job however, it seems as it might be a permanent move Their family moves into an old inn, and that s when she first notices Ian MacKinnon a nineteen year old who was poisoned 200 years ago After Riley befriends Ian, she is determined to rid the curse that keeps him from crossing over into the afterlife She runs across a problem, though The young woman who [...]
A pleasant surprise, this book restored my faith in the YA genre I had all but given up hope.A girl named Riley loses her mom, and her family moves to Scotland, where she encounters a few ghosts One of them is named Ian, and she falls in love with him There s a problem though Another girl likes Ian too, and she just so happens to be dead and very dangerous This could have been a cheesy Twilight like story about a loner being romanced and stalked by a supernatural being, and some times it did com [...]
The Deepest Cut is an amazingly beautiful love story J.A Templeton s writing is truly beautiful The tenderness Templeton shows between Riley and Ian made my heart fall in love with them Riley and Ian s love had me crying, hoping, and longing that they would find a way to be together Templeton has a gift for writing heart melting love Riley and Ian broke my heart with their love that could never be.Riley lost her mother in a car crash, and Riley feels responsible for her mom s death The guilt is [...]
This one had so much potential sigh But I wasn t interested in any of the characters at all.I spent the first 1 3 of the book wanting to know about the spiritual world this author had created, the other 2 3 I didn t care any And I never got straight answers That wouldn t have mattered, if at least one of the characters were likeable, deep, realistic but for me Templeton needs a better understanding of the teenage mind Despite all, I still wanted to get to the end, because sometimes a great endin [...]
I m sorry, guys Every time I attempted to get any further in this book my brain threatened to cease functioning The writing is exceedingly choppy and unfocused The plot is about as unimaginative as one can get I don t like any of the other characters enough to force myself further.
I am glad this book was free I was really hoping for a creepy, scary ghost story This is partly my fault, I didn t read the description of the book before I read it I just looked at the title, the cover and comments from others about freaky ghost stories view spoiler I thought it started out okay It would be very traumatic to lose your mom at such a young age and to actually be there when it happened would be worse I can t imagine losing my mom ever but especially so young Her dad moving her and [...]
Originally posted Book Whales What will do if you love someone you can t have Would you fight for it or Would you let go Wow, no words can really describe this book This book is spectacular It was well executed and the story is believable The author did a good job in describing the inn, castle, cemetery and the history of the MacKinnon s I was deeply engrossed in the world she made, Scotland is the perfect place for this.The characters are realistic I connected to Riley instantly I felt her pain [...]
I have to admit that at first I thought this book would be like The Mediator by Meg Cabot I don t know if you read this series but the story in Mediator is really similar, but the outcome totally different And I must say I loved the difference This book should totally get attention, since it definitely made my list of best books this year It s not like other books in which the romance is so obvious and going to end well no matter the obstacles in the way The Deepest Cut has everything you want [...]
OMG OMG OMG Holy Mother Craperolies The ending O This so requires a sequel And I need it asap This book is pretty much EXACTLY the kinda ghost book I like The girl falls in love with the guy ghost even tho it can t be cause he s already dead but the whole Kade thing was a really awesome thinG This way I don t feel so heartbroken about Ian I felt really sorry for Riley, her mom dies then she can see ghosts That could suck for anyone Anyway, this book is def awesome I started my 2012 book year wit [...]
Grumble grumbleI have to stop reading books unless I know the entire series is finished Cause when you end a good book with a cliffhanger.AHHHHH So yeah, I really enjoyed it.UPDATE changing review to 3.5 Got so caught up in the ending, forgot how much I didn t like the corporealness of the ghost with all the hugging and kissing.I couldn t change my view from ghosts being untouchable, and so it was distractingbut it wouldn t have been as much fun if they couldn t touch So this was mostly a proble [...]
A bit scary if you ask me.Heres the thing, I like suspense and mystery, but not horror and even though I would not classify this book as a Horror book, it was still scary than my comfort level I also dont watch scary movies and freely admit to being a big baby about this so I wouldn t be surprised to find no one else was scarred when reading this However, the book itself was very good and easily kept my attention the entire time It was very esy to fall into and I enjoyed it Give it a go if you [...]
All I can say is WOW I had a terrible time putting this one down More of a mystery than a romance but there was a definite romantic but clean element to the story The heroine you just instantly connected with and felt her pain The story was fascinating and the creepy elements were downright horror movie scary There is an HEA but it s left open ended with a bit of a twist You won t be disappointed and I cannot wait for the sequel
One test of a really good book is whether you feel like you know the narrator by the end Templeton s Riley felt like a good friend by the time I finished reading Take Riley and mix her with some other fantastic characters, a descriptive setting and a wonderful intensity and you get an amazing result I am excited to see where the series goes next.

I picked up The deepest cut because the cover caught my attention Then I read the synopsis and I decided to buy it But It wasn t what I was expecting.First I don t like when ghosts go all solid because they need to make out with your resident good girl turned medium, who happens to be the only person who can see them Same thing happened with Apparition and La promessa ghosts that become visible just for one person with no reason I do miss the old ghosts who used to stay incorporeal There s a red [...]
