Review: Ruined by Paula Morris

A gripping YA supernatural novel set in New Orleans: TWILIGHT with a ghostly twist.
Rebecca couldn't feel more out of place in New Orleans, where she comes to spend the year while her dad is traveling. She's staying in a creepy old house with her Aunt Claudia, who reads Tarot cards for a living. And at the snooty prep school, a pack of filthy-rich girls treat Rebecca like she's invisible. Only gorgeous, unavailable Anton Grey seems to give Rebecca the time of day, but she wonders if he's got a hidden agenda. Then one night, in Lafayette Cemetery, Rebecca makes a friend. Sweet, mysterious Lisette is eager to talk to Rebecca, and to show her the nooks and crannies of the city.

 Steep in mystery, murder, ghosts and deep dark family secrets, Ruined is a Fantastic book. I loved the atmosphere of the New Orleans settings. You feel as if you are really in that old Historical city. I could actually feel the presence of the Lafayette Cemetery. The storyline is so full and twisting you hardly get your bearings before you are off in a new direction. The main character is a delight to follow through all her trials. She is way braver than I would have been in her situation. Guess that just runs in her Old-line Family blood. Fortunately, she rights the wrongs of her ancestors. I can not wait to read the sequel to this thrilling story !! I Love the way this Author tells a tale. She is one of my new Favorites to read.
