Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

April 12, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

Some people may call FELLSIDE heart-breaking, but that is too gentle. The book rips out your heart, stabs it with a shank made from an old toothbrush, and finishes it off with a few good whacks with a fire-extinguisher for good measure. This book is incredibly violent, but also incredibly touching, with characters that will stick with you long after the last page.

Review:  Southern Spirits (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries #1) by Angie Fox

Review: Southern Spirits (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries #1) by Angie Fox

February 12, 2015 Review 3 ★★★★

SOUTHERN SPIRITS is a fun and surprisingly fast read. I enjoy some quirk in these light paranormal stories and this book is full of quirks from Verity’s pet skunk to the many types of ghosts with their own odd issues and relationships. The story follows Verity on her attempt to solve a decades old murder mystery in order to get money to pay off her debt and keep her house.

Review: Ghost Layer (Ghost Seer, #2) by Robin D. Owens

Review: Ghost Layer (Ghost Seer, #2) by Robin D. Owens

September 25, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

GHOST LAYER had potential as it had a really interesting premise with the main character, Clare coming into her ghost seer powers which from what we see of them sound pretty darn awesome. The problem I had was that the actual story was confusing and just didn’t hold my attention enough for me to get really invested in the characters.

Review: Guarded (Tidewater #2) by Mary Behre

Review: Guarded (Tidewater #2) by Mary Behre

Looking back at my review for Spirited, my thoughts at the time were that I’d probably read the second book in the series, but would do so with the hope that some of the little glitches were tightened up. I’m happy to say that they were. GUARDED was a much tighter story – both in terms of the plot and the sparks/relationship of the two protagonists.

Review: Better Homes and Hauntings	 by Molly Harper

Review: Better Homes and Hauntings by Molly Harper

July 3, 2014 Review 2 ★★★

Take a standard romance novel trope, add a ghost story and some humor, and you get a romance novel only Molly Harper could write. BETTER HOMES & HAUNTINGS is a departure from Harper’s normal vampires, werewolves, and witches, but it doesn’t suffer for it. In fact, this standalone was a treat, and definitely worth the read despite my complaints about tropes.

Review: Sixth Grave on the Edge (Charley Davidson #6) by Darynda Jones

Review: Sixth Grave on the Edge (Charley Davidson #6) by Darynda Jones

May 22, 2014 Review 4 ★★★★

Every time I pick up a Charley Davidson book, I’m concerned that maybe, just maybe, I’m misremembering how good the previous books were. After all, there’s no way Charley can be that snarky, Reyes can be that sexy, and Cookie can be that sweet, right? And yet, with every one, my love of this series is reaffirmed, and SIXTH GRAVE ON THE EDGE is no exception to that rule.
