My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to the rules passed down from my father. But now a haunted police detective has entered my world and everything is changing, including the rules that have always kept me safe.

It started with the discovery of a young woman's brutalized body in an old Charleston graveyard I've been hired to restore. The clues to the killer—and to his other victims—lie in the headstone symbolism that only I can interpret. Devlin needs my help, but his ghosts shadow his every move, feeding off his warmth, sustaining their presence with his energy. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the symbols lead me closer to the killer and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

3.5 The Restorer, by Amanda Stevens
Amelia Grey saw her first ghost at age nine. Her father immediately taught her the rules. Don't acknowledge the ghosts. Stay on hallowed ground. Shun the haunted. And Amelia has done a good job of following those rules in the years since, even though she works as a cemetery restorer and writes a blo...

5.0 Perfect ghost story in Charleston!
This had all the creepy that a chilling UF ghost story needs. It had great atmosphere and such a distinct feeling of place and time. The murder mystery was well thought out and had enough hints to keep you guessing. The culprit was not too obvious and the reader came closer to the solution with th...
