    I won this book in a give away.This book is aedgy YA paranormal 16 year old Maya is living a pretty ordinary teen age life she has a horny best friend with an over active libido, deals with the sterotypical mean cheerleaders, and has an over possessive ex boyfriend who can t seem to take no for an answer But there sto Maya than meets the eye, because not only can she can see ghosts, but her close proximity makes them solid When a 100 year old ship is dredged from the bottom of I won this book in a give away.This book is aedgy YA paranormal 16 year old Maya is living a pretty ordinary teen age life she has a horny best friend with an over active libido, deals with the sterotypical mean cheerleaders, and has an over possessive ex boyfriend who can t seem to take no for an answer But there sto Maya than meets the eye, because not only can she can see ghosts, but her close proximity makes them solid When a 100 year old ship is dredged from the bottom of the bay, the explorers bring upthan a ship They bring up a band of ghosts, an evil sorcerer, and a dark secret that s been hidden underwater that can destroy the world.I liked the premise of this story, though the edgy nature is not for younger readers There s not only the constant references to sex and teenage libidos, but a couple of death scenes that while not overly graphic, might cause some younger readers a few tense moments.Maya and her best friend, Lucy, are fairly memorable characters and seem to be natural best friends The cheerleaders are sterotypical in their cruelty, though the basis for their cruelty is never really defined, except the state of Maya s virginity seem to be their main focus The description of Stuart, Maya s ex boyfriend, is almost scary in its real life portrayal.I had a couple of problems with this book Maya has known she can see ghosts since an early age, yet she doesn t seem to realize when she s talking to one until it s laid out for her in black and white It would seem to me that someone who knows about ghosts and who can talk to ghosts, would at least recognize ghosts when she meets them.The other problem I had with the novel is that, while expertly portrayed, for the first 2 3 of the book, Stuart is a total dick There s not one redeeming quality to this guy And because the author uses multiple points of view, you know what he s thinking in his head, and his thoughts aren t redeeming either Then, suddenly, within a page or 2 toward the end, he changes his ways, helps to save the day, and becomes great friends with Lucy, Maya, and her new ghost friend that, up until then, Stuart has despised No one changes that fast, especially if the character is not set up for change earlier on It s just not believable.I also would have rather seen this book in one point of view While there were some surprising twists, due to the multiple points of view, the elements of mystery and suspense were missing, and I like to have a little guesswork going when I m reading a book.Overall a nice read

    Who would have guessed that ghosts could be sexy and seductive In Ghosts of Coronado Bay, they are with that striking swagger and danger that instead of sending me chills, gave me some hot flush coursing through my veins I know I m a bit exaggerating but the real thing is, I ve enjoyed the story very much that I would consider rereading it any time soon The plot was mellow but the suspense kept me engaged and thrilled and I wouldn t be bored by it at all.Initially I was expecting something Who would have guessed that ghosts could be sexy and seductive In Ghosts of Coronado Bay, they are with that striking swagger and danger that instead of sending me chills, gave me some hot flush coursing through my veins I know I m a bit exaggerating but the real thing is, I ve enjoyed the story very much that I would consider rereading it any time soon The plot was mellow but the suspense kept me engaged and thrilled and I wouldn t be bored by it at all.Initially I was expecting something a bit darker than what this book has already offered The hauntings sounded very familiar, but with some added twists like romance and horrific murder, I couldn t have asked foreven though I wasn t getting as much goosebumps as I d wanted Speaking of romance, I didn t truly get the author s idea of a human girl dating a 100 year old ghost no matter how good looking the ghost is However, to me the romance was perhaps so much better than that between Edward and Bella Maya isn t my favorite character but I adored her personality and good sense of humor And Blake, I just couldn t help but felt sorry for him despite his infectious innocence.Ghost of Coronado Bay as a whole has captured not only my imagination, but my long term interest as well It is indeed a book worth reading and kept in anyone s bookshelf, ebook library or whatever you have as a book storage

    I won this in a giveaway on LibrayThing.com I had really no clue what I was getting into when I read this.The writing style was good I like the uniqueness of the cover.Well, the plot was original There was Gavin and Blake Two ghosts who become romantic interests to the main character, Maya She is a normal, typical teenage girl who just broke up with her jealous, possessive ex boyfriend BUTshe can see ghosts I can see dead people Not exactly something you want to pronounce, right We I won this in a giveaway on LibrayThing.com I had really no clue what I was getting into when I read this.The writing style was good I like the uniqueness of the cover.Well, the plot was original There was Gavin and Blake Two ghosts who become romantic interests to the main character, Maya She is a normal, typical teenage girl who just broke up with her jealous, possessive ex boyfriend BUTshe can see ghosts I can see dead people Not exactly something you want to pronounce, right Well, she was all cool about it.Blake was a total sweetie and I love him Gavin, wellif you read this, you ll understand why I hate him and call him vulgar names in my head.The only bad things about this book was that sometimes the dialogue wasn t that great and sometimes the characters reacted in a way, or did something, that actual people wouldn t Something I also feel I should mention was that even though Maya claimed she loved her best friend, Lucy, she was calling her a whore behind her back Really I just didn t get thatOverall, it was a fun little read I recommend it to anyone looking for something to pass the time
