GHOSTED by Rosie Walsh is the kind of book that you want to have time to just sit, read and enjoy. While I was reading it, there were many times that I had to control myself from flipping to see how it ended. On one level, it begins as an often-told story of girl meets boy, they fall for one another, boy disappears and girl wonders why.

Sarah meets Eddie; they click and clearly have strong feelings for one another. I guess one could say it’s love. It’s definitely mutual. Eddie is heading for a long-planned vacation, and promises to call and to meet up again. But when he does not call, or otherwise get in touch, Sarah is perplexed. She cannot believe she read this relationship wrong.

Sarah’s friends tell her to forget him, but she needs to know more. She reaches out via social media, and others are troubled by his absence as well.

To share more is hard without giving the story away, but let’s just say that one comes to understand why things unfolded as they did.

Rosie’s dialogue is well-done --- smart, not sophomoric. And she builds so well the tension that Sarah feels, right through the reveal. Grab a copy of the book; you’ll see what I mean. And I love the title. The term “ghosted” has become part of the vernacular. Here it is dead-on.
