It's been 10 years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne's case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched. The decade-old investigation focused on Nic; her brother, Daniel; her boyfriend, Tyler; and Corinne's boyfriend, Jackson. Since then only Nic has left Cooley Ridge.

I liked the overall story itself but telling it backwards and then adding present day things into it made it too confusing to follow. I stuck through to the end because I wanted to know exactly what happened but that still didn't help 100%

A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

The story was good but the narration was horrible. Angel Clark tried to change her voice for the male parts and failed miserably at it.
The Author had plenty of funny lines in this book that actually made me laugh out loud at times. But the story was good enough that I kept listening even though the narrator was horrible

Gillian Flynn is an amazing writer. She has a talent for writing these twisted stories that come to life as the book is narrated. Gillian Flynn and Anne Marie Lee work well together. I will read more by her! Credit very well spent!

First this book was another great read. I really enjoy the ghost trapper series. This book has the same great characters as the first novel in the series. The author keeps us on the edge of our seats by her graphic descriptions of the ghosts. Love this series I will be reading the next.

Ellie Jordan's job is to catch and remove unwanted ghosts. Part detective, part paranormal exterminator, Ellie operates out of Savannah, Georgia - the most haunted city in the United States. When a family contacts her to deal with a disturbing presence in the old mansion they've recently purchased, Ellie first believes it to be a typical, by-the-book specter, a residual haunting by a restless spirit. Instead she finds herself confronting an evil that is older and more powerful than she'd ever expected.

Too bad Amazon Audible does not give you more than ,2 credits! Ellie is a strong willed heroine in this story. It is equally paranormally charged with an added dash of mystery. I am glad Ellie finally reveals a little about why she got into ghost hunting. That little chapter of the book answered a bunch of questions and tied up the story beautifully

I have been an Apryl Baker fan for a while now I first discovered her writing on the app called Wattpad. This story is about Mattie, a foster child whose had a pretty messed up childhood. She was almost murdered by her foster mother in the group home she was living at. Upon coming back from the brink of death, she brought back a gift. Her gift is being able to see,feel , and hear ghosts and as of now demons. This is a great story is you are looking for a great ghost, horror story. *You don't have to read the first Ghost Files book, but it is highly recommended* to read and understand this one. Apryl Baker is a young talented writer!
