Book Review: Ghost Gifts

All Aubrey Ellis wants is a normal life, one that doesn’t include desperate pleas from the dead. Her remarkable gift may help others rest in peace, but it also made for an unsettling childhood and destroyed her marriage. Finally content as the real estate writer for a local newspaper, Aubrey keeps her extraordinary ability hidden—until she is unexpectedly assigned the story of a decades-old murder.

Rocked by the discovery of a young woman’s skeletal remains, the New England town of Surrey wants answers. Hard-nosed investigative reporter Levi St John is determined to get them. Aubrey has no choice but to get involved, even at the terrifying risk of stirring spirits connected to a dead woman’s demise and piquing her new reporting partner’s suspicions.

As Aubrey and Levi delve further into the mystery, secrets are revealed and passion ignites. It seems that Aubrey’s ghost gifts are poised to deliver everything but a normal life.

Great story!  Prepare to be taken on a wild ride when Audrey is assigned to investigate a twenty year old murder. Readers will be taken along on her investigation and will even get to take a few trips into the past to meet Missy, the murder victim.

I really enjoyed this story filled with interesting characters, witty dialogue, unexpected developments both personally and professionally, and tension that I didn't expect to find since this was a decades old murder.  I really enjoyed meeting Aubrey's grandmother Charley who ran a traveling carnival as she has such a fun outlook on life and death.  

And the ending was as unexpected and well worth the wait.  While I think that this book wrapped everything up nicely, I am hoping to see another in this world since the characters are just so delicious.

I do recommend GHOST GIFTS to any of my readers who enjoy a mystery with a touch of paranormal.  The sex scenes are few and not graphic so this book is appropriate for all ages.  

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
