Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Amy Goodnight's family is far from normal. She comes from a line of witches, but tries her best to stay far outside the family business. Her summer gig? Ranch-sitting for her aunt with her wacky but beautiful sister. Only the Goodnight Ranch is even less normal than it normally is. Bodies are being discovered, a ghost is on the prowl, and everywhere she turns, the hot neighbor cowboy is in her face. (via Goodreads)I've just been waiting for a cover to make this my Waiting On Wednesday book--and now that I found one, here it is!!!
I loved, loved The Splendor Falls (my review)--it's one of those books with characters and a plot that I still think about a lot (like when I do any sort of ballet stretches ;)) and I've been rather impatiently awaiting a new book from Ms. Clement-Moore.
Texas Gothic is a different book than The Splendor Falls, obviously, but I love that it, too, is set in the South and involves both family (and their relationships) and the supernatural! And hot cowboys are never bad, are they? Plus, I really want to read another book with ghosts in it--there aren't enough of those lately, I don't think.
Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore isn't out until July 12, 2011 (from Delacorte Books for Young Readers) and I'm practically counting the days (it's 257 if you're curious).
