About the book:

Sixteen-year-old Riley Williams has been able to see ghosts since the car crash that took her mother’s life and shattered her family. Guilt-ridden over the belief that she’s somehow responsible for her mom’s death, Riley is desperate to see her mother’s elusive spirit to gain her forgiveness.
When her father moves the family to Scotland so they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn’t get worse––that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into friendship, and soon Riley’s falling hard for Ian.
Riley believes her gift could help Ian end the curse that has kept him tied to the land for centuries, but that would mean letting him go forever and she’s not sure she is strong enough to do that. As if her life wasn’t complicated enough, the spirit of the woman who killed Ian returns and she’ll stop at nothing to keep Riley from helping Ian find eternal peace.

The Deepest Cut is on of the hardest books I have had to review. Even now, I struggle with whether to rate it a four star or five star. I am so incredibly enthralled with Riley’s story that it is a favorite, and a five star read. Though, as a dedicated book blogger I have to look at every aspect of the story, and  recognize that in the beginning I felt some minor bumps associated with a debuting authors growing talent. Riley’s story is a twist of horror and paranormal romance. Templeton offers a goose bump read that will have readers looking over their shoulders. This is a unique story, and a fresh breath into this rapidly growing genre. Riley is a young girl with a lot of baggage. After the untimely death of her mother she finds herself guilt ridden and in possession of a strange ability that will remain a constant reminder of what she has lost. After her father accepts a job transfer; her family picks up and moves to a old town with a very dark history. When Riley’s new ability the two are like mixing oil and water. What she soon discovers will change her life forever, and open new doorways that she never knew existed. This simply lays the ground work for what lies ahead, and the story that follows is wonderful start for what promises to be thrilling series. The story is delivered in a very rushed pace that will race readers through the stories end.  This does not hinder the story, but it will leave you craving more. With the fast pace and awestruck cliff hanger I am desperate to begin book two. BOOKWHISPERER RECOMMENDED!!!
