Stay by Deb Caletti

Summary: (from book jacket) Clara's relationship with Christian is intense from the start, and like nothing she's ever experienced before. But what starts as devotion quickly becomes obsession, and it's almost to late before Clara realizes how far gone Christian is-and what he's willing to do to make her stay. Now Clara has left the city- and Christian- behind. No one back home knows where she is,but she still struggles to shake off her fear. She knows Christian won't let her go that easily, and that no matter how far she runs, it may not be far enough...
Review: This is the second book that I have read by Deb Caletti and I really enjoyed this one. I thought the plot was a little slow at first but once it picked up it was great. I liked the fact that while the story was largely focused on Clara and Christian's relationship there were other things happening as well. At first, I didn't like the fact that the story was split between past and present but as the plot picked up I started to enjoy it more.   The many mentions of ghosts seemed to give a scary aspect that kind of related to what was going on in the story.I thought all of the characters were pretty simple and i was able to relate to them. Even though Clara did some things that were kind of dumb sometimes I really liked her as a narrarator. Her family history added a lot to the stroy as well. This book is an awesome romance that has more going on then just a typical relationship. I'm finding that to be a pattern with Caleetti's books and I really like that and plan on reading more. Anyone who is a fan of a very character and family driven book mixed in with romance will like this one.
