Meara’s best friend was Kelly. Kelly wanted Meara to come to her uncle’s ranch for a visit as that is where Rachel will be working for the summer before their Senior year of HS. But Meara was suppose to work most of the summer at her mother’s Sharon’s Rebecca's store- a sewing and fabric store. Meara maintained the website and ran the cash register in the store. That day after school and seeing Kelly Meara was told by her mom her cancer was back and the doctor gave Sharon six months to two years. Sharon felt it was time Meara met her grandparents as they would be the only relatives she had after Sharon passed away. Sharon also told Meara they were moving to Canada in two weeks. Meara’s grandparents weren’t bad people and did what they could to make Meara feel welcome. Sharon talked of Meara’s dad- David- for the first time. Meara went with Sharon the next day to meet her mother’s best friend Lydia when she had lived in Peggy’s Cove before Meara was born. Lydia runs the B&B the Cove Inn. Lydia had a son who would be going to University his name was Evan and he was hot. Evan told Meara to drop by whenever she felt like it. She also meets Lydia’s daughter - not that first day though- Katie who was in the same grade as Meara. Meara is having dreams about her father David who warns her to be careful with Evan and to take care of her mother. Meara and Evan are getting close and start seeing each other. David gives Meara clues to what he is and also her which isn’t human - Meara is still half human. Katie and Evan help Meara figure out the clues. David comes back and marries Sharon. Then Meara discovers David is helping Sharon by lending her his power to ease Sharon’s pain. Meara then realizes how much her dad loves her mom. After Sharon passes away David gives Meara a letter from her mom. Meara has to decide to go with David and meet the other half of her family or stay with her grandparents and Evan. I liked this story but didn’t love it. But it did need more editing to be easier read and flow better. It does drag some of the time also. But definitely a different type of paranormal story and I enjoyed it to a degree but the story didn’t WOW me in any way. I loved the closeness between Meara and her mom. I hate the pain Meara had to go through leaving everything she knew behind and her Senior year but more important her mother's cancer and Sharon’s passing. So not a bad book just not a favorite.
