Summary: Jeremy Marsh is a born skeptic and science journalist who specializes in debunking the supernatural. When he hears about ghostly apparitions in a cemetery in Boone Creek, North Carolina, he leaves his beloved New York City for this small, rural town-and what his instincts tell him coud make a great story. What he doesn't plan on is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, who is sure of one thing: her future is here in Boone Creek, close to the people she loves. Now, if the young lovers are to be together, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows in New York, or do something he could never do before...take a giant leap of faith.
My Review: This was the first book by Nicholas Sparks I have ever read so I could not compare it to his others. I, however, did enjoy this book. I wasn't as interested in the love aspect of the book, as I was in what he did for a living. Trying to figure out what the lights in the cemetery are intrigued me, and I think that is why I liked the book as much as I did. If it was just a love story, I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much.
