Review: Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to.

Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.

As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart.
You have to hand it to Aura, the main character. She really knows how to mess things up with guys. Especially if one is already dead and one has a limited timeframe for being in the country.

This carries on immediately from Shade and is another tearjerker. Much of the novel Aura is very upset, angsty and confused (again).

But she holds on to her morals this time and begins to finally be able to let Logan go. That is after he turns from a shade to a ghost and then something else entirely. In a 17 minute timeframe she not only ruins her moment with Logan but also blurts out the truth of said 17 minutes to Zach.

Zach, I have to say, is a gent, a saint, and all good things. Yes, he gets a mighty bit narked with Aura but he had a valid reason.

In the end we learn more about Zach, the tragic disease of his father that is somehow linked to her mother, and more DMPers than you can shake a stick at.

The cameraderie is still as good. Megan does an awesome job as BFF and a surprise outing with Dylan (Logans youngest brother) turns out not quite as Aura expected.

All in all, another brilliant novel by Smith-Ready. We are still non-the-wiser of a certain Shift but we have another novel out soon which hopefully will explain all!
