Book Review: The Moment Collector by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Bobbing along, Bobbing along on the wind, spying on people.

"The yard of this house is a graveyard of moments and everything left behind is a clue. And I am here to dig."

There's a ghost haunting 208 Water Street. She doesn't know who she was, or why she's still here. She does know that she is drawn to Maggie, the new girl in town, and her friends - beautiful, carefree Pauline and Liam, the boy who loves her.

But the ghost isn't all that's lurking in Gill Creek... Someone is killing young girls all across the county. Can the ghost keep these three friends safe? Or does she have another purpose?

This book is also know as The Vanishing Season, I have no idea how either name was came upon.

The writing was pretty. There is this thing about a nameless ghost spying on everyone. It's odd flaming devices that all brings to the book as no one is aware of the ghost within the story.

This is a novel about relationships. Everything else is just flaming. I like the exploration of the friendship dynamics, it does feature a love triangle but it's interesting in terms of a relationship study. It was bit frustrating sometimes the way the different angles behaved.

I found the ending disappointing, I think it was twisty for the sake of twisty. Also strangely happy considering everything that happens.

Overall, I gave the book 4 out of five stars for ice holes. This book was pretty to read and the character were interesting and real.

I got this book off NetGalley for Review and it is published by Orchard Books.
