"a fantastic read!"

Destiny is a person, not a fate and she lives with her grandmother, Rose, following the tragic deaths of the family and little brother. Turns out that Rose, while being a dandy grandma is also the sole proprietor of the Mystic Cat - a Wicca, new age book and herb shop in Arcadia, Florida.

Trying to cope with the loss of her family is hard enough but when Destiny finds she had shared some of Rose's talent in seeing, speaking and helping spirits, enough is enough! She doesn't want the gift, didn't ask for it and feels it will just make her stand out more than she already is as the "new girl in town".

She meets Amy Morgan, spoiled little rich girl and her boyfriend, Jake. Amy immediately sees Destiny as a man- hunter and Jake sees someone who could be a friend. Jake's sister is killed in a car accident and Destiny helps him manage his grief by talking with her. Amy's mother has decided that she is too old for her Winnie-the-Pooh furniture and buys her a beautiful, though soot covered, set from the Internet. This is when everything goes downhill for the Morgans. When Sarah purchased the furniture, it came with a few "extras".

Haunted Destiny was a fantastic read! I couldn't stop reading; I read it at work (shhh, don't tell) and home, in the car - everywhere. If this is Ms. Abell's first effort I certainly hope it won't be her last. She has great talent!

Destiny Dove is the only survivor of a tragic car crash that killed her parents and baby brother. A teen uprooted from her home, she is forced to live with her eccentric grandmother whom Destiny has been taught her whole life to fear. She must start her life over living with an old woman who is not only a stranger to her, but just strange. All Destiny wants is to fit in with kids like her and begin to pull her life back together.

But Destiny soon discovers she is not like the other teens at all. She has developed the family gift of being able to see and talk to ghosts and her estranged grandmother will be the one person who can help her understand what the fates have dealt her…a haunted destiny. Being the town freak does not put Destiny high on the potential friends list, but Jake Turner sees something in her that the other teens from Blake High don’t. Destiny is actually able to put her unique talent to use and help Jake communicate with his recently deceased sister forming a bond between them that no one else can share or know about. In an extraordinary twist of events, Jake’s girlfriend Amy receives some furniture with some frightening ghostly spirits attached to it, and Jake turns to Destiny for help.

Now Destiny must struggle with a force she is unprepared to handle. When a party at Amy’s becomes a showdown between good and evil will Destiny have what it takes to save Amy and the others? Will the help of her grandmother, two resident ghosts and a surprise visitor be enough to rid the Morgan family of the evil possessing them and allow Destiny to finally gain the acceptance she so desperately wants? Or will the ancient evil destroy them all?
