I've read a few of this author's books including the first Haunting Joy book and enjoyed all of them. I don't generally read stories that feature ghosts but I was really surprised how much I enjoyed the first book so I was quite excited to be given the opportunity to read Haunting Joy book 2. I really liked this sequel to Haunting Joy. I liked the growth and maturity that we get to see in Joy's character, I felt like she had grown up in a lot of ways since the first book and it was really cool how she finally started to see herself the way other people see her! There were several pieces of the first book that were mentioned as Joy remembered them, which I thought was great because it had been a long time since I read the first book and there were a lot of things I had forgotten. I liked that we got to see Nick and Joy's relationship develop more, and that it felt really believable to me.
I found it really interesting that this new ghost that is haunting Joy can't remember how he died so she has to help find out that information, I also liked how his influence sort of rubbed off on Joy a bit. And you probably wouldn't think so but I found reading about the ghost following Joy around and bantering with her to be very fun and even quite humorous at times.
Overall, this was a really good read that I really enjoyed. I highly recommend it but think you may want to read Haunting Joy book 1 before this.
I received a copy of this book from the author, no review was required. The above is my honest opinion, all thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
