When Marshall King and Elyse Alton suddenly wake up tangled in each other's arms with zero memory of how they got there or even who they are, it's the start of a long journey through their separate pasts and shared future.

Terrified by their amnesia, Marshall and Elyse make a pact to work together to find the answers that could restore their missing memories. As they piece together clues about their lives, they discover that they're in the idyllic mountain resort town of Summer Falls. Everyone seems happy there, but as Marshall and Elyse quickly learn, darkness lurks beneath the town's perfect facade. Not only is the town haunted by sinister ghosts, but none of its living inhabitants retain bad memories of anything--not the death of Marshall's mom, not the hidden violence in Elyse's family, not even the day-to-day anguish of being a high schooler.

Lonely in this world of happy zombies, Marshall and Elyse fall into an intense relationship founded on their mutual quest for truth. But the secrets they're trying to uncover could be the death of this budding love affair--and of everyone, and everything, they love in Summer Falls.
Kitanidis Makes Summer Falls a world of complete perfection. But in Summer Falls, perfection has a price.
Wow, ghosts take on a whole new meaning. Not only are they making the residents of this seemingly perfect town act like they're doing more than just coffee... The ghosts that haunt the town are controlled my a truly e.v.i.l master who is distracted only by the woman he married, abandoned and still lusts for. Yup, that's completely normal. Perfect.
When two seemingly perfect strangers (hint hint, they're not) wake up in bed together, No no no not like that. Shush your dirty, filthy mind, they have no recollection of, well, anything. They are lost in a world they cannot call their own and rely on people they're supposed to know for memories that don't even seem like theirs.

“I didn't see myself as the busty type. Too bad bodies are issued randomly, not selected to match your personality”
I liked this book because it was so out of the ordinary and totally not what I was expecting. People turned zombiefied by ghosts? Check. A love story entwined in saving the only thing they never really knew? Check. Lost memories and stolen hearts? Double check.
So you my fellow readers will find in these pages a love (kinds) triangle unlike any other. To each other they are insanely protective, caring and loyal. They are the only two in the town who can really save the town from the cruel facade of perfection and turn the town into something worth knowing.

My Complaints:

The title makes no sense. None. Unless I missed something....Did I miss something?
Dude....gimme some more romance. The book revolved around the town and hardly at all around them. Jackie need more romance. Por Favor?

Say Yes to the
