Ghost Planet [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Ghost Planet" by Sharon Lynn Fisher.

Product Description

Psychologist Elizabeth Cole prepared for the worst when she accepted a job on a newly discovered world -- a world where every colonist is tethered to an alien who manifests in the form of a dead loved one. But she never expected she'd struggle with the requirement to shun these "ghosts." She never expected to be so attracted to the charming Irishman assigned as her supervisor. And she certainly never expected to discover she died in a transport crash en route to the planet.

Reincarnated as a ghost, Elizabeth is symbiotically linked to her supervisor, Murphy -- creator of the Ghost Protocol, which forbids him to acknowledge or interact with her. Confused and alone -- oppressed by her ghost status and tormented by forbidden love -- Elizabeth works to unlock the secrets of her own existence.

But her quest for answers lands her in a tug-of-war between powerful interests, and she soon finds herself a pawn in the struggle for control of the planet ... a struggle that could separate her forever from the man that she loves.

My Review:

When psychologist Elizabeth Cole arrives on Ardagh 1 she is greeted by her supervisor Grayson Murphy.  The two hit it off and even discover they met during a lecture on Earth years ago.  Soon Grayson realizes Elizabeth is a ghost when she sets off the Ghost sensors and failing every Ghost test.

At first Elizabeth finds it hard to accept that she died but to distract herself she is determined to solve her problems.  First Murphy the man she is attracted to won't talk to her and then she meets another ghost Ian who she develops a deep friendship with.  Together with Ian they theorize the symbolize between ghosts and colonists.  She has theorize that ghosts can separate from colonists and lead a normal life without being chained to someone else.
