The Skeptics’ Guide to the Mysteries of the Universe by Jessica Arden

Haunted pasts. History Nerds. Hot New Orleans Nights.

Grad student and New Orleans ghost tour operator Julie Deveaux is used to believing in things she cannot see. Although with her family history, spirits lurking beyond French Quarter galleries seem more plausible than true love or soul mates.

With romantic entanglements the last thing on her mind, Julie would do anything to complete her thesis research and exonerate infamous murderess Sophia Durocher in the process. Anything, that is, except further harass Sophia’s already spotlight-weary family.

However, a collision in Jackson Square puts her in the path of infuriatingly handsome fellow history-buff Griffin, and Julie is unable to ignore her attraction. After they accidentally exchange copies of a rare book, Julie gets insights into Griffin, revealing someone who grapples with the same big questions as she does. As the two grow closer, this man (whose weird internet search history might just rival her own) begins breaking down her walls one by one.

But when Griffin turns out to be the grandson of her thesis subject, Julie walks a dangerous line. He could be the key to all of the answers she seeks. But solving Sophie Durocher’s mystery could mean losing the one man who makes her rethink her belief in soul mates.

 

I loved this reading, it was different from what I have read, I guess that title is a little misleading. It is written in 3rd person point of view, and at first I was absolutely hooked with the sequence of events, by the middle of my reading I didn’t know what to expect or think, but soon enough I was eager to know everything. It was a surprise for me, I thought it was a different kind of book, but I loved it, I recommend it, is smart, light and nerdy, and easy to handle if you are initiating yourself on the world of reading. The cover deserves a special mention because it is beautiful and it´s beautifuly related to the plot, I’m a fan of beautiful book’s covers, and I should mention that cover
