Where One Goes

Title: Where One Goes
Author: B.N Toler 
Publication Date: March 18, 2015

What happens when the very thing ruining your life ends up saving it?

I was never one to believe in spirits—until six years ago, when a bone-chilling accident changed my life... forever. 

My name is Charlotte, but most people call me Char... and I have a special gift. 

I talk to the dead. 

Make no mistake, I can’t summon them. I’m only able to see and speak to the spirits that linger when they’re unable to crossover. They’re somehow weighted to the world with unfinished affairs. And for the last six years, I've relentlessly used my gift to help their lost souls.

But it’s come at a price. My life is dark. Feeling despondent, I've begun to give up. And in helping the dead, I've realized I haven’t allowed myself to live. With no money, no place to go, and most importantly... no hope, I've decided there is only one option—to end it all.

But fate is a funny thing. One minute, I’m about to leap to my death, and the next, I’m saved by Ike McDermott. The strong, striking soldier stopped me from putting an end to my despair. He’s the kind of man that smiles and brightens an entire room. 

Sweet and gentle.

He is my savior.

And he’s dead.

We've made an agreement. He’ll help me find a place to stay and a new job if I’ll help him with his unfinished business so that he may crossover.

Ike’s unfinished matter involves his twin brother, George. George has been falling apart since Ike’s death and Ike has not been able to compel himself to crossover in peace until he knows George will be okay.

When I agreed to help, little did I know that I’d fall in love with the charming folks of Bath County, and... Ike and George McDermott. 

Now, as both brothers own equal parts of my heart, I am faced with a cruel and unfair predicament. In saving George, I must let go of Ike. 

But how does one let go of half of their heart?

Where One Goes was my FAVORITE book of 2016 and it went straight to my list of all-time favorite books. It's a book that I was scared to read, but I'm so glad that I took the courage to do that, because I would have missed one of the best stories ever.

Charlotte has a gift: she can talk to the dead. Yes, you read that right. 

When the dead appear to me, there’s no weird sound or blurred image. A warning sign of some sort would be lovely, but it’s not a luxury afforded to me. They look like everyone else. It’s only when they see me notice them that I figure out they’re dead.

Charlotte helps the spirits that are not able to crossover because they have some unfinished business. It all started six years before, and from that moment, she lost control of her life. Everyone thinks she's crazy and she is so desperate that she wants to put an end to her life..

But fate is a funny thing. One minute, I’m about to leap to my death, and the next, I’m saved by Ike McDermott. The strong, striking soldier stopped me from putting an end to my despair. He’s the kind of man that smiles and brightens an entire room. 

Sweet and gentle. 

He is my savior. 

And he’s dead.

I can't really say more because you have to go into this blind. The story is sad and very emotional, but don't let that deter you from reading it. As a matter of fact, this is not a depressing read! It's heartwarming, it will put you a smile on your face in the end and it will give you HOPE.

"Would you dance with me if you could?"
His brows rise, surprised by my question. Standing, he looks down at me, his expression serious. "Every fucking song. You wouldn't have a chance to dance with anyone else the entire night."

I'd love to share with you all the quotes I highlightened, but then this would be the LONGEST review ever because I pretty much loved EVERYTHING about this book. And I'm not exaggerating. This author has a gift, her writing is so beautiful and poetic, and every word gave me goosebumps.

I've been putting off reading it for over a year because I was scared, I don't deal well with angsty and sad books, but oh boy, I didn't know what I was missing.

I have to admit that PNR romance is not really my thing, but this?? This was oustanding. This is one of those books that I want everyone to read. Where One Goes is a book that you absolutely don't want to miss. I know that there are so many books out there and that it's hard to keep up, but I'm begging you, give this story a chance. 

Like I said, best book of 2016, without a doubt! 

“I love you, too, baby girl,” he whispers. “Here, there, forever.”
