Tighter by Adele Griffin
Released: May 10th 2011
I usually don't go near thriller novels as they often send me to sleep a little less relaxed than I'd like to be so it's saying a lot that Tighter is on my wish list. I think it has something to do with the protagonist starting her journey in a career that's always interested me, being a nanny. It gets a little creepy when Jamie finds out she looks almost identical to the dead girl and starts to sense ghosts.
Summary from Goodreads: When 17-year-old Jamie arrives on the idyllic New England island of Little Bly to work as a summer au pair, she is stunned to learn of the horror that precedes her. Seeking the truth surrounding a young couple's tragic deaths, Jamie discovers that she herself looks shockingly like the dead girl—and that she has a disturbing ability to sense the two ghosts. Why is Jamie's connection to the couple so intense? What really happened last summer at Little Bly? As the secrets of the house wrap tighter and tighter around her, Jamie must navigate the increasingly blurred divide between the worlds of the living and the dead.
