Library Journal Review

After co-writing his first work of nonfiction with his brother, Micah (Three Weeks with My Brother), Sparks is back with another novel about finding one's true love. Jeremy Marsh is a science writer who specializes in exposing supernatural frauds and hoaxes. Following some flashy national exposure, the New Yorker is invited to investigate mysterious lights in an old cemetery in little Boone Creek, NC. In a classic romance plot, the attractive yet sensitive Jeremy is attracted to the beautiful yet stubborn town librarian, Lexie Darnell, who is also the granddaughter of a local diviner. Both Jeremy and Lexie are skeptical people-but not about the same things. Despite some nice plot twists, the mysteries and conflicts are resolved in largely predictable ways that will still satisfy Sparks's many fans. Purchase wherever the author is popular.
