Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life...a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her -quoted from Goodreads

  1. Hello! May I know if this is international? and where should we write our answers if the tour is finished? thank you! :)

    1. HI Jucelle! I'm sorry, it's not international. When you collect all the words, please fill out the form posted above. :) Thank you!

  2. Hi MundieMoms, I was going through the blog tour to collect my words and when I click the links for Page Turners & Fire Ice (the last two blogs for May) I get sent to the same post on Page Turners. I was wondering if this a mistake or if this was correct?


    1. Hi Kristy! Thank you so much for catching that. I just fixed the link :)

  3. Question: Do we have to wait until the last blog site posts their word? Like, if we can figure out the phrase with all but one word (and let's just say the phrase is in order correctly), can we submit it anytime? Before that last day? Thanks! Alyssa

    1. Alyssa- Sure, but there's only one entry per person, and you'll need to have the complete phrase to be entered. ;)

  4. Just wondering if I am the only one who is missing the scav word for Hypable's post? If I am then pardon me...I am a dummy!

    1. Hi Jaime, thank you for catching that. I've included the scavenger hunt words that have been posted so far in the post above. I hope that helps out. :) I'm sorry they weren't all posted.

    2. I was the same, but then I looked at it again and saw that 'you' was in bold, implying that was the word.
      And The Story Siren hasn't posted the guest post yet. :/

    3. I don't know how I missed that either.

      The Story Siren's word is .... in

    4. Thanks for posting The Story Siren's word for us. I have looked several times and that the post isn't up yet. Thanks for helping us out!

  5. Thanks for posting the words, Mundie Moms! I followed each blog, but as you know, there were some issues with some. So thanks for posting them and hosting the tour! :)
