Deception by Lee Nichols

When Emma Vaile's parents leave on mysterious business trip, it gives her the perfect excuse to be a rebellious teen. Throw some parties, get a tattoo (or maybe just a piercing), and enjoy the first few weeks of her junior year. Then her best friend stops talking to her, the cops crash her party, and Emma finds herself in the hands of a new guardian—her college-age "knight in J.Crew armor," Bennett Stern—and on a plane to his museum-like mansion in New England. After enrolling at Thatcher Academy, Emma settles in by making friends with the popular legacy crowd. But she can't shake the strange visions that are haunting her. She has memories of Thatcher she can't explain, as if she's returning home to a place she's never been. Emma doesn't trust anyone anymore—except maybe Bennett. But he's about to reveal a ghostly secret to Emma. One that will explain the visions . . . and make Emma fear for her life.

Deception is one of those books that make you want to read paranormal books, because it has convinced you that paranormal books *like itself, are amazing*. I couldn’t stop reading. Deception was a nail-biting first start to a series that made me want the second book. Lee Nichols really knows how to write and I am looking forward to reading the second Haunting Emma novel. The characters were written really well and there was even a three-way romance that made my heart melt *at times*. I recommend this book to people who don’t normally like paranormal.

FTC- I received this book from the publisher.

Wow, this sounds like a great paranormal read, especially because I usually don't like three-way romances. I definitely will have to check this out, thanks! :)
