Review #121: Happily Never After- Missy Fleming

Summary: There's no such thing as happy endings.

Savannah, Georgia is rumored to be the most haunted place in America. Quinn Roberts knows it is. She's felt the presence of spirits her entire life, investigating and photographing them with her best friend. Only none of those encounters ever turned violent, until now. The menacing darkness feeding off her stepmother has promised she won't live to see her eighteenth birthday.

After a chance meeting Quinn reluctantly allows actor Jason Preston into her life, which has complications of its own. She's not used to letting people get close. Falling for him while fighting for her life, and her family's legacy, only complicates things more. Jason shows her exactly what she stands to lose, especially when she's being attacked by the mysterious entity. Each attack is more violent and terrifying than the last.

With Jason's help, she dives into the Roberts' family history, searching for a link between a woman who went missing a hundred and fifty years ago and what's happening now. What they find is a brutal murder and that the ghost doesn't just want to hurt Quinn, it wants revenge.

It wants her life.
Title: Happily Never After
Author: Missy Fleming
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I friggin loved this book! Missy Fleming has started something amazing and I really hope that she can finish it as strongly. I love that she used Cinderella as the bones of the story but made it her own by involving ghosts. It really blew my mind. By adding ghosts it took the book up a notch. It was amazing the way that Missy was able to make the story modern and appealing to readers. Ghosts freak me out because I believe that they are the most real of the paranormal creatures, so to me this novel had the horror element as well. 
I loved the characters that Missy Fleming created. Quinn was a dark Cinderella and the famous Jason Preston was her Prince Charming. I liked Quinn's quick wit and her critical thinking of how to try to get rid of the evil spirits and also how to help the good ones. Jason's character was a little corny but only because he was the famous guy who fell for a small town girl. I just hope that it is genuine. Catherine was quite the evil villain and I can't wait to see what happens next after that stunt she pulled at the end of the book.
Heck yes, I will be continuing on with this series. I need to find out what happens with Quinn and how she will deal with the situation she has found herself in. I would recommend this book to fairytale lovers and ghost junkies.
