In this addition Charley, the Grim Reaper and private investigator, who can see the dead, has her apartment overrun with blonde women who have been dead for decades. They are scared, dirty, bloody and won’t talk to her. Are they the victims of a serial killer? Why are they suddenly showing up now? And yet despite this, the humor is once again over the top.
Meanwhile, Reyes is making himself at home as Charley's neighbor who thinks they “should date." … "You're going to have to go to obedience school for that to happen. You have authority issues." (read the previous books to see who Reyes is) Reyes and his sticky notes are not only sexy but also a riot.
When Gemma's life is in danger, Charley will do anything to protect her ... even sell her soul to the son of Satan. Although she and her sister’s relationship has evolved they are not best friends.
Love Cookie, Charley’s secretary and best friend, who is more than a lot of fun in this book. Will she end up with Mr. Swopes?
Reyes and Garrett are interesting to watch with their male posturing over Charley. Both are protective and possessive.
I can picture Reyes in an apron and nothing else and I am sure that is what his ardent admires are visualizing. Reyes Farrow is definitely at the top of his game in this book with the perfect mix of sexy, sarcastic, and funny with many wisecracks.
Will Rocket's prediction be revealed in the next book, along with Charley's reaction to that last scene of the book?
I want the next book to be out NOW!
I truly liked Charlaine Harris and this series, until now.
This book totally turned me off because it is DEPRESSING because of the child abductions.
Then the book took a left turn with Tolliver, the brother. Totally unnecessary and a distraction.
This could have been an excellent book in a very good series. The idea of the dead communicating from the grave was a great start to a new kind of paranormal experience in books.
I'll try the next book BUT I'm not so sure that I will stick with the series. There are a LOT of buts...
This series does not disappoint. On to the next one. The series is THAT good.
Game warden not sheriff. WY the only similarity. Content story FANTASTIC. Have to read the entire series.
Sentimental like "The Notebook" but did not leave me wanting more. As our heroine points out scrapbooking is for everyone from the business that wants to tell its story to the individual who wants to leave the family memories. Underneath those basic needs is a heartfelt story.
I want more. This does not cry sequel but I want more from this author.
I want more in the series. It is just plain old fun to read and very light hearted despite the witches or maybe because of them. Good mystery series.
My daughter recommended this book BUT then she said, "it is my vampire porn". That ALMOST prevented me from reading this. It ended up to be a very good recommendation and NO porn.
Too many characters. Too drawn out. Too boring. I wanted tell the author to "Just Get On With It." Not as good as the first book.
Fun book that I would recommend.
The new owners of historic Bernini House want to return it to its original state and make it into a haunted Bed and Breakfast. They have heard about Mel’s special gifts in communicating with the dead and are hoping that she can convince the ghost family to stay. Although Mel has met Annabelle, one of the children (ghost) that lives in the house, she has competition for the job. Avery Builders is also going to bid on the job.
The catch is that both Mel and Josh Avery have to spend the night in the home to win the project. Whoever stays the longest wins the job. Graham, Mel’s boyfriend, doesn't like the idea of her spending the night with Josh and decides to join her. Both competitors end up with an entourage at the house because no one wants them to be alone with the ghosts.
However, that problem all goes by the wayside when a body is discovered in the well. Mel tries to convince Annabelle to tell her what happened but isn't getting any answers. Instead the haunting becomes more menacing and Mel finds herself as a suspect in the murder.
I highly recommend this series if you like paranormal mystery.
The main character, Mel, a general contractor, is interesting and quirky. However, she wears frilly clothes to the job site even though she has “overalls to wear over them if she needed to crawl through grime”. (Please, that is a little over the top.)
She has taken over Turner Construction from her retired dad and is surrounded by a warm non-traditional family and steadfast friends who add to the interest of the story.
Every house has problems during a renovation, but this one has the additional problem of Jim Daley, the owner, who insists on living in the basement apartment with his family while the renovations occur despite the fact that his wife is against it.
There are spirits residing in Cheshire Inn. Mel has dealt with spirits on other jobs but this one is different. When cantankerous neighbor and former resident of Cheshire House, Emile Blunt, is found dead, Mel believes there is a link between the murder and the spirit. Although she understands the risk, Mel, must find a way to coax the ghosts to move on and out of Cheshire House while finding out who killed Emile.
There is also a sub plot involving Jim’s wife that adds to the mystery and intrigue as well as a female police investigator that has her eye on Mel's dad as a suspect for Emile's murder.
