Literally PR Books
*The Stealing by S.A.Sutila is a gothic romance set in the eighties.She chose to die. Now she chooses to live. And love. But her spirit has been claimed by a dark presence.

In the final year of high school, Sarah Vise’s life is set to start and finish on a literal dead-end street on the coast of Delaware. Abandoned by her mother, Sarah works endless hours on her domineering father’s fishing boat in the shadow of a run-down lighthouse. However, with an offer to college and after an intriguing encounter with her blue-eyed neighbour Grant, a fire is sparked inside Sarah. She is filled with a passionate desire to break free and carve out her own future for herself. Sarah’s hopes are dashed when her callous father refuses to let her leave, and in desperation, she surrenders herself to the crashing waves. Grant frantically saves her from certain death, but her weakened spirit is taken by a dark-if alluring-presence to the afterlife. Captivated and too beaten down by life to resist, Sarah at first allows herself to be overcome by the hunter-sage. But she learns that Max is demonic in his need to control her and she once again has to beg for her freedom. Striking a terrible deal, Sarah steps back into her life and embarks on a romantic relationship with love-struck Grant. But the clock is ticking loudly, and Sarah’s fate is as unpredictable as the winds that lash her prison.

I love gemstones and the range of moonstone earrings caught my eye. The drop hoop ones (above) are my favourite in particular. 
A real moonstone has been specifically cut into to show the stone to its best advantage. The gemstones are detachable and interchangeable so you can add additional stones for a truly versatile look. The hoops can also be worn on their own without stones or charms. I've got my eye on the matching moonstone necklace next.
