The Deepest Cut, (MacKinnon Curse series, book 1) by J.A. Templeton Book Summary

Sixteen-year-old Riley Williams has been able to see ghosts since the car crash that took her mother's life and shattered her family. Guilt-ridden over the belief that she's somehow responsible for her mom's death, Riley is desperate to see her mother's elusive spirit to gain her forgiveness.

When her father moves the family to Scotland so they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn't get worse––that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into friendship, and soon Riley's falling hard for Ian.
Riley believes her gift could help Ian end the curse that has kept him tied to the land for centuries, but that would mean letting him go forever and she's not sure she is strong enough to do that. As if her life wasn't complicated enough, the spirit of the woman who killed Ian returns and she'll stop at nothing to keep Riley from helping Ian find eternal peace.

The Deepest Cut, (MacKinnon Curse series, book 1) (J.A. Templeton) Book Reviews

AMAZINGI read this entire book in 5 hours. I love it so much..Score: 5/5

Loved itI loved this book and can't wait to read the next. Toward the end though I thought my insides would collapse because of how sweet it was and then I see the last sentence and I'm like WHY! But I got over it and am curious. Toward the end my eyes did start water because I'm a softy when it comes to sweet lovey stuff and when Megan said the picture resembled Ian's Decendent I was like they are getting together. I just loved it and how it ended with a mystery. I really have to read the next book!.Score: 5/5

AMAZING 😍👌🏻😭I LOVED IT!!!!!!! It was an amazing book in my opinion and I plan on looking for it and the other books in this series in all the bookstores near me. I definitely recommend this for young adult readers into ghost stories and romance and a bit of action. I can't wait to read the other books!!!! XD.Score: 5/5

Good, but lacking understandingI thought that the book was good, but it lacked full understanding of what a ghost is. The author had the main character, Riley touching the ghost psychically in ways that you would not be able to. Ghosts are supposed to be spirits, not human like in any way except for their appearance..Score: 3/5

I LOVE ITI literally loved this book❤️ I teared up when Ian left, it was very creeepy I couldn't sleep the first night thinking about it, I couldn't stop reading it was INTENSE. I finished reading it in TWO days😂.Score: 5/5

Great readsI believe this is an indie book, and so didn't know what to expect. This was a wonderful read and I went on to purchase the other 2 in the series without disappointment. Hoping the author finds a new story to write!.Score: 5/5

Cute, but not dazzling.It's a cute story, but the writer distracts the reader from what could be a good book. The story wasn't smooth flowing. There are aspects where you read and have to re-read to make sure you aren't missing something because the scene changes are so abrupt. Additionally, the story is a little cheesy, but try it for yourself and see if it is your cup of tea..Score: 2/5

ExcellentSome minor editing issues where the incorrect word is utilised i.e. elude instead of allude, but a very well written novel. The protagonists have great depth and believability despite the paranormal context. The emotional and psychological issues of the female protagonist are highly relevant to today's youth, the author deals with them with both accuracy and sensitivity. Highly recommended for older teens..Score: 5/5

Love it.Well I never read anything other than my newsfeed on Facebook before I stumbled across the two free books from this series on my iPad I started with the deepest cut because I myself had cut and read it in a day and I just couldn't stop so I read the other freebie the MacKinnon curse and didn't want to stop, so I decided to buy the rest of the books, I haven't read them yet but I look forward to it although the two books I have read seem to repeat a few phrases like "cupped my face" and a few other thing, before this series I hated reading with a passion this series had got me stuck Into itzz.Score: 5/5

Good teen read!I've been going through heaps of young adult stories lately and this is one I found easy to get into.

Adult readerAs an adult reader of this series I actually really enjoyed it, I downloaded, read and thoroughly enjoyed the authors writing style and the characters created by her imagination and experiences. I love the paranormal romance genre and am a huge fan of S.M Reine but stumbled upon J.A Templeton because of the free/inexpensive price for her work which I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. I would say people in any age group would really enjoy this series, would not recommend for young teens due to the drug reference. But otherwise love your work..Score: 5/5

AmazingThis book held me captive with its amazingly thought out plot. I had everything in it; a love story that can never happen, family struggles, a new place to live and the biggie the fact that the main character can see ghosts.

The Deepest CutThis is an excellent book and was a brilliant read. I could barely put it down. It was entertaining throughout the book and was also quite tense in parts (especially when sat in the dark). The ending was better than I expected. However, I'm a little annoyed because at the very end it finishes on a bombshell. I hope that there is plans for another book to continue Riley's story. I would happily pay my whole allowance for it. I have just downloaded the next book about Ian and I can't wait to devour it. I have recommended it to both my sister and friends.
