Phillips is clearly a talented writer. But the concept of this story and its characters get lost in too many storylines. There's just too much going on.

Darian Cantrell has just been promoted. She's also engaged and is all set to live happily ever after -- until her sister tells her she has cancer. After rushing to her sister's side, she discovers that the cancer is terminal and she's expected to raise her two rambunctious nieces.

Darian and her fiance agreed to no children, so needless to say there's trouble in paradise. Brad, her high school love, however, has matured into quite a man with a son of his own. As the pair begins to rekindle their love and create a blended family, Darian faces the wrath of a vengeful mother who enlists the help of the dead. (Dafina, Apr., 352 pp., $6.99)
