Synopsis (Goodreads): Lori Chase doesn't know what to think about ghosts. She may have seen a few in the past, but those were just childish imaginings...right? Only now that she is living in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, spirits seem to be on everyone's mind. The town is obsessed with its bloody Civil War history, and the old inn that Lori's parents run is supposedly haunted by the souls of dead soldiers.

Then Lori meets one such soldier--the devastatingly handsome Nathaniel Pierce. Nathaniel's soul cannot rest, and he desperately needs Lori's help. Because Nathaniel was not killed in the famous battle. He was murdered. Lori begins to investigate the age-old mystery, stumbling upon shocking clues and secrets.

At the same time, she can't help falling for Nathaniel, just as he is falling for her....
My Review
Rebel Spirits was okay. I didn't really love it, and I didn't really hate it. I didn't really expect anything going into it.
Things I Liked
* I really enjoyed the setting. I felt that it was described really well, and I felt like I was there.
* The concept of the story was nice. It wasn't the most original but I thought it was nice.
* The ending. It wasn't the best, but it left us on a nice note.
Things I Didn't Like
*The romance. You knew it wouldn't work out and it bugged me.
* The way the mystery was solved. The thing you need to find just happens to float in front of you? I don't think so.
Overall, I thought the book was meh. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. I didn't really care for the characters, the plot was okay, and the feeling of the entire book was just kind of bleh.
Rating: 3/5 worms
