The Ghost and Mrs. Miller by Sandra Tilley
The Ghost and Mrs. Miller - Sandra Tilley

Sandra Tilly has done a really good job with this book. I personally really enjoyed it. I am all about ghost's as lead characters. Although I am not a huge romance reader this one really grabbed me and did not let go. The book has really no horror or thriller to it, but you do get a ghost. At times the book was sad, funny, and more or less a feel good type story. It really runs the gambit of emotions and tells a true to life story, except maybe the ghost aspect. 

 

On Libby and Neil's 19th anniversary, Libby catches Neil cheating with his assistant.  On his way home that same night Neil looses control of his car and dies in a car crash. Neil may be dead but he isn't gone. He is a ghost and only Libby can see him. 

 

Libby is still very mad at Neil and wants him to cross over, Neil has other ideas. He shows up whenever he is least expected or wanted. Libby is trying to stat a new life with her 2 kids and gain independence,  along with a whole cast of childhood friends.

 

Eli and Jesse grew up with Neil they considered themselves the 3 Musketeers. Both Eli and Jesse are trying to get Libby to go out with them. There is a past there as well, Jesse stood Libby up at their senior prom, and that same night Eli and Libby, had sex. Afterwards Eli ignored her.  Neil in the end won the prize so to speak. 

 

Neil also lets Libby in on some of the 3 Musketeers secrets over the years. One of which Jesse is using against Eli, and Neil before his death. As Libby tries to figure out which way her life should turn she also tries to help her friends. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Cat Call by Steve Vernon
Cat Call: A Tale of Ghosts and Darker Things - Steve Vernon

If you think your cat might really be a demon in disguise you need to read this.

  

This is mine. I think many of you are already familiar with him :) His name is Patrick and his purpose on this planet is to slowly drive me insane.

 

 

This story had my name all over it. There’s a cat, a creepy-ass house and the promise of a haunting good time and it delivered on all points plus a few more! I seriously loved this little story and have no idea why I haven’t read this author before now but I’ll be changing that soon because I’ve just purchased two more. 

 

A group of kids decide to investigate the local creepy mansion and dare each other to spit on the porch. Why do boys do such dumb things?! No need to answer that. Anyhow, they see an old gray cat behind the screen nibbling on what looks to them like a piece of raw meat. The dumbest bravest young man faces down the cat and it doesn’t end in a way any of them could ever have imagined!

 

This story is told from Jeremy’s POV and Jeremy knows true darkness having already experienced it twice in his young life. I am absolutely not going to tell you any more of what happened because you should all read this story for your own selves. Just know that it was heart-tugging and you will feel all kinds of emotions for this young boy within the first few minutes of the story that will continue until the end. Unless you’re totally dead inside, that is. If that’s the case, there’s no helping you.

 

This is some fabulous characterization and I loved every moment of it. Very highly recommend!

 

If you pick this up on audio you won’t be disappointed by the narration. Tom Zainea has a down to earth voice that fits perfectly with this haunted little tale.

Deliciously Creepy & Suspenseful...
The Carrow Haunt - Darcy Coates

The Carrow Haunt is Darcy Coates newest release. It's about a girl named Remy that gives tours of the famously haunted Carrow House. On one of her tours, a guest asks if she will proposition the owner to allow a group of people including Remy, to stay at Carrow House for a couple of weeks in order to study the paranormal phenomena up close and personal. Not willing to pass up a chance to experience some of the sightings she talks about in her tours everyday, Remy agrees to participate;  and the owner, a huge paranormal enthusiast, jumps on the chance, with the stipulation that she has to be included in the guest list too. None of the guests are quite prepared though, for the terrifying experience Carrow House has in store for them.  

 

So this is the second book I've ever read by Darcy Coates and I was just as impressed with it as I was with Craven Manor. I love a good ghost and haunted house story and she's delivered in both books. The Carrow Haunt was deliciously creepy and suspenseful! Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. I'm definitely looking forward to reading a lot more of her books.

Ghost of the Innocent Man by Benjamin Rachlin
Ghost of the Innocent Man: A True Story of Trial and Redemption - Benjamin Rachlin

Willie "Woot" Grimes was wrongly convicted in 1988 for the rape of an elderly white woman in North Carolina. Ghost of the Innocent Man by Benjamin Rachlin is the true story of his conviction, trial, and incarceration. Woot Grimes spent 25 years waiting to be exonerated. He was found guilty of first-degree rape and sentenced to life imprisonment. Woot had several people to give him an alibi for the time of the crime, but this did not matter. Instead the prosecutor took the ever changing word of a witness and was able to get a conviction. 

 

Christine Mumma, a cofounder of North Carolina's Innocence Inquiry Commission, took on Willie's case and fought tirelessly to free him. 

 

Benjamin Rachlin has done an amazing job of telling Willie's story as well as how the Innocence Project begins and how they fought to free an innocent man. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
