The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts Update


It’s time to share the official back cover summary for The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts:

She tried to ignore them. But some things won’t be ignored.

Kat Preston doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not because she’s never seen one, but because she saw one too many. Refusing to believe is the only way to protect herself from the ghost that tried to steal her life. Kat’s disbelief keeps her safe until her junior year at McTernan Academy, when a research project for an eccentric teacher takes her to a tiny, private island off the coast of Connecticut.

The site of a grisly mystery, the Isle of Acacia is no place for a girl who ignores ghosts, but the ghosts leave Kat little choice. Accompanied by her research partner, Evan Kingsley, she investigates the disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe on their wedding night in 1886. Evan’s scientific approach to everything leaves Kat on her own to confront a host of unbelievables: ancestral curses, powerful spells, and her strange connection to the ghosts that haunt Castle Creighton.

But that’s all before Kat’s yanked through a magic portal and Evan follows her. When the two of them awaken 129 years in the past with their souls trapped inside the bodies of two wedding guests, everything changes. Together, Kat and Evan race to stop the wedding-night murders and find a way back to their own time—and their own bodies—before their souls slip away forever.


The cover reveal is coming up on April 6th! Several awesome blog buddies are also going to share the cover on their blogs. We’ll be kicking off a Rafflecopter ARC giveaway that day too!

  5. Great book blurb, Kourtney! I can’t wait to see the cover. Congratulations! I hope your grandmother is doing well. 🙂

    • Thanks Jill! I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. 🙂 She is doing pretty good. Her son has had some terrible health issues for 8 months and that’s been very hard on her. She’s still cantankerous just more worn around the edges.

    That’s a great idea to combine time traveling with ghosts. I love both so I’m really looking forward to this – congratulations!

    • It’s funny the story started out as a time travel murder mystery and then the ghost thread got woven in and now I can’t imagine it without the ghosts too. 🙂 That’s so awesome to hear! Thanks. This was the story concept the 11 year old me dreamed up with my best friend. Took a while but the adult me finally got around to writing it.

  10. This sent shivers up my spine! I love ghost stories, and I can’t wait to read this one!

  11. This sounds like a great read – wonderful story and an atmospheric setting, can’t wait to read it Kourtney.

  12. I wish I had books to read like this in my teens.. 🙂 Brilliant story line x
