Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of
silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep.

that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous
boyfriend. It’s the opening gambit in a web of murder, deceit,

And Kathleen Turner, law office runner, can trust no one if she wants to survive.
Dying is what changed Mary O’Reilly’s life. Well, actually, coming back
from the dead and having the ability to communicate with ghosts is
really what did it. Now, a private investigator in rural Freeport,
Illinois, Mary’s trying to learn how to incorporate her experience as a
Chicago cop and new-found talent into a real job. Her challenge is to
solve the mysteries, get real evidence (a ghost’s word just doesn’t hold
up in court), and be sure the folks in town, especially the handsome
new police chief, doesn’t think she’s nuts. Twenty-four years ago, a
young woman drowned in the swimming pool of a newly elected State
Senator. It was ruled an accident. But now, as the Senator prepares to
move on to higher positions, the ghost of the woman is appearing to the
Senator’s wife. Mary is hired to discover the truth behind the death.
She unearths a connection between the murder and the disappearance of
five little girls whose cases, twenty-four years later, are still all
unsolved. As she digs further she becomes the next target for serial
killers’ quest to tie up all his loose ends.

Reading is one of my favorite hobbies. I love sharing what I'm reading and posting my thoughts (reviews). Although this blog started out as reviews for paranormal romance, it has grown to include many other genres such as: horror, true crime, fiction, etc..
I am not a professional reviewer by any means, but I know what I like in a book. Reading is my favorite hobby and I love to connect with others who share my love for books.
I'm a mom of two teenage boys and a nine year old girl. I also have two awesome dogs (Maggie-a boxer; Bandit- an akita mix) and a beta fish named Scooby. Other than reading, I love drag racing, watching Ghost Hunters and Vampire Diaries, baking, painting, and basically anything creative.
