I decided to read this one because I really like the cover and that I was looking for a good cute romance book. Isobel’s mother just married to a guy she met on the internet three months ago. Now she had to leave her life and best friend and move in to her new home which is located in a small island. Then Isobel started seeing ghost who she believed was her dead stepsister. Her parents (more like her step father) accused her of being mentally ill just like her father. Now Isobel need to find out what was going on and convinced people around her that she was not crazy.
I wasn’t sure what I feel about the book. I love the whole mystery behind the island and what really happen there. I was curious as to why Isobel started to see the ghosts. Isobel was an okay character. She was in her rebellious phase after she had to leave her social life to move in with her parents to this small island. I really like her and her witty remarks. But I think that the romance between Isobel and her stepbrother didn’t really work with me. It’s a little bit weird. I wish there were moments between Isobel and her father. I wish they had a conversation about his mental illness and what Isobel was experiencing.
Overall, I think Unraveling Isobel is an okay book. It was a light read with mystery, a bit romance and humorous moment.
