Waiting On Wednesday (9) Swoon by Nina Malkin

I saw this in Simon & Schuster's Frankfurt Rights Guide and I was smitten with the cover and with the premise: A girl falls in love with the vengeful spirit who is taking over her town. Tagline: Sin is coming - prepare to swoon!

Here's the description from the catalogue:

Torn from her native New York City and dumped in the land of cookie-cutter preps, Candice is resigned to accept her posh, dull fate. Nothing ever happens in Swoon, Connecticut...until Dice's perfect, privileged cousin Penelope nearly dies in a fall from an old tree, and her spirit intertwines with that of a ghost. His name? Sinclair Youngblood Powers. His mission? Revenge. And while Pen is oblivious to the possession, Dice is all too aware of Sin. She's intensely drawn to him—but not at all crazy about the havoc he's wreaking. Determined to exorcise the demon, Dice accidentally sets Sin loose, gives him flesh, makes him formidable. Now she must destroy an even more potent—and irresistible—adversary, before the whole town succumbs to Sin's will. Only trouble is, she's in love with him.

And a short excerpt:

"Love at first sight must be glorious. I wouldn’t know, since
at first there was no sight. There was smell, the salty scent
of horses. Plenty of other sensations, too. But I’ll get to that.
The point I want to make up front is that by the time I
finally laid eyes on Sinclair Youngblood Powers—in the
flesh, that is—I was already in love with him. Nothing could
change that. Not even the fact that he was dead."


I'm prepared to swoon - how about you? Coming May 2009.

Swoon sounds great! :-)
Re:Anna K- I'd still read it if I were you. :-) It's not an insult to Iowa- it's a statement about Anna's naivete and lack of imagination. It's a good book.
