Hourglass by Myra McEntire
© 14 June 2011 by Egmont USA


Goodreads description:
For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?
Sounds so good, right?! I've read some absolutely fabulous reviews of this book.  I try not to read them too closely so I can make my own judgment, but so far everything I've read has RAVED about this book! I have it on hold at the library, but I'm seriously considering begging my husband to let me buy it (Dark Days was supposed to be my absolute last book purchase until October due to our financial situation...). We'll see!

Here's the fabulous book trailer...

I hadn't seen the trailer for Hourglass. That looks great. I also hadn't heard of Revenant. I'll have to look for some reviews on that one. Great picks!
