Two months after dying, Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body. As a witch, can anyone blame her mother for attempting to bring her daughter back to life? Now Gray is stuck sharing her sister’s body in twenty-four-hour shifts.

Raj McKenna is rumored to meddle in the black arts, not to mention he’s after Gray’s invisibility spell, and worse—her heart. But Raj might be the only one powerful enough to save Gray from fading away forever.

The race is on for Gray to find a way back inside her own body before Charlene purges her from existence.
(Goodreads Synopsis)

I received this book when the author was offering free copies on her blog during a giveaway hop. The premise sounded interesting, so I decided to take up her offer and give it a go; I'm glad I did.

I really enjoyed this story of body swapping and witchcraft. The characters were well drawn and engaging and the story was nicely paced, with plenty of action to keep me turning those pages. I was certainly invested in the story and keen to see how Graylee would get out of her predicament.

I liked Jefford's writing style; her prose was easy to read but not dull and her dialogue was believable. Plus it was one of the best edited self-published works I have read; I really didn't notice much untoward, save one moment when Graylee seemed to act a bit out of character.

All up an excellent start to the series and I will certainly be adding the second book to my wish list.
