    No point in going on & on about the details JUST BUY IT. If you've gotten a Kresley Cole book, you already know you can't go wrong. If you haven't, GET ONE. Then get them all. With Robert Petkoff reading it's just too good for words.

    My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father…until now. Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

    Despite it's interesting intro with this new take on another character that sees ghost, the first few chapters were pretty slow moving. So much so that I almost returned the book but by the middle the pace and plot picked up. By the end of the book I couldn't wait to get the next one. Glad I didn't give up.

    My name is Amelia Gray. They call me The Graveyard Queen. I've been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but I'm coming to think I have another purpose here. Why is there a cemetery at the bottom of Bell Lake? Why am I drawn time and again to a hidden grave I've discovered in the woods? Something is eating away at the soul of this town - this withering kingdom - and it will only be restored if I can uncover the truth.

    Like the first book, it had a slow start but it had just enough intrigue to keep me listen. By the end of the book I couldn't wait to get the next. One of the few ghost series out there that actually has a different take rather than the obvious and predicable plots.

    I had been waiting on pins and needles for this book and was a bit disappointed. Not sure if it was the narrator that didn't work for me but the book just seemed to drag on. The saving grace was the ending that picked up a bit with some action and an interesting intro to the author's next book. Hope next book is better than this one.

    If you love Jeaniene Frost or Kresely Cole's book series you HAVE to give this series a try. Each book has different adventures that your favorite characters go on so one never gets bored and each book is better than the last. The author has developed a fun and amazing character in Charley Davidson that you won't be able to get enough of. Laughter, romance, and supernatural beings, what more can you ask for.

    Pinkalicious can’t believe it: The mayor has canceled Halloween because a storm has knocked out the town’s power. No Halloween means no Halloween candy. No Halloween jack-o'-lanterns. No Halloween trick-or-treating. No Halloween holiday parties. And worst of all, no Halloween costumes. Pinkalicious has the perfect Pinkagirl costume and she absolutely has to wear it. Superhero Pinkagirl would find a way to save Halloween, and Pinkalicious decides she will, too. All she needs to do is figure out a way to get the town’s lights back on.

    I give it to the Cast Girls they keep you reading and looking forward to the next book even when your ready to cut them off. The first few books suck you in with the characters and plots but by the 8th book all that made you love them annoys you. Even Neferet has gone from bad ass to "Really Now". Truly if it wasn't for Caitlin Davies narrations I couldn't have gotten through it. That being said Redeemed has a decent enough ending to a lingering series for those who feel the way I do i.e. "I'm done with this series but I can not not listen to it." Thanks so much for the good times but glad to say Good-Bye.

    After looking forward to the finale it was very disappointing once I finally got to hear it. The book is incredibly long and just drags the story out way too much. I was even able to doze off for a half hour and didn't miss a thing or lose my place since the story still had not moved on. Sadly the few highlights are ruined because the narrators are just some of the worse I've ever heard. If you're a fan as I was you probably won't be able to help but get this book to know how it end but trust me you're better off reading some Spoiler Alerts someone is sure to have out there. Save your money.

    BEWARE THE FOLLOWING HAS A BIT OF A SPOILER ALERT.
    I couldn't wait to get started on this book and it truly had me hooked. A broken-hearted girl has her first one night stand with, of course, a handsome rich stranger who happens to look a lot like her ex. By using his money & connections he finds Jessica again & gives her a much needed job. With a new town, new job and a great new friend who is also her co-worker and roommate things are really looking up for Jessica. She even starts a relation ship with her new boss. The sex scenes are pretty intense. So since things are coming together for Jessica of course her ex Storm, would come back into her life. Now an interesting triangle starts up. Jessica is truly torn between the 2 and you feel for her since both men are amazing in there own way and who have much more in common than you know.I could even give it to Jess when she spent the night with one & then the very next night with the other. When the three of them are forced to face the true while one guy walks in on Jess and the other guy you finally get some good dialogue there. But when on chapter 13 Jess goes to her boss's place for a talk, she ends up putting on some kind of harness getup with leather straps. And if that weren't enough the second guy walks in in order for them to have a threesome. Totally didn't see that coming. But what made it worse was the second time the threesome takes place which was after Jessica accepts engagement ring from one of the guys. I truly believe that whole threesome was unnecessary. The story didn't need it. It had me hooked at least until that tasteless craziness took place. If they were having fun maybe. But the two men where in love with Jessica and were waiting for her to choose. While Jessica went from a broken-hearted girl to sleeping with a man whom she can't get enough of and who orders her to be a total submissive to his wants & needs. And the harder he hit her the more she likes it? Really since when? And then has a threesome with dominate and the one that got away. Not just once but twice and neither guy looks at her differently? Really? And when you've just gotten engaged? Really? Opal you were going to get a new fan with me til good o'l chapter 13. It truly went to the dark side with that one. So if you don't mind the threesome situation then You'll truly like maybe even love this book.

    One of the many reason's I adore Kresely is that she doesn't really do cliffhangers…..until now. Waiting a year for poison princess series is bad enough and now this? 4 hours is no way near long enough once you dive into a world of money and the mob that is lead by your newly found father. And then start a hot and heavy relationship with the untouchable body guard?……..Well all I can say is Please Hurry With the Next Book!
