I enjoyed the mystery and I‘m going to continue the series but the romance felt a little too heavy. There was too much “I looked at his chiseled jaw and my heartbeat quickened”. The plot had plenty of twists and I really enjoyed the explanations for graveyard symbology though so overall I liked it.

Wow! What a ride. This books was so atmospheric and had a wonderful gothic feel to it. It was a different take on the traditional ghost story. I can‘t wait to read the next in the series. Thanks to @Slajaunie for the copy of the book! I will be paying it forward and plan on lending it to my mom to read.

This was my final book for #14books14weeks. Thanks for hosting again this year @TheHeartlandBookFairy I loved this challenge!

A dark-ish urban-fantasy/mystery with the beginning of a romance. The heroine can see ghosts but must pretend she cannot because of REASONS and the hero is haunted, by some of the ghosts she has to ignore. Will definitely go out to get the next in the series! 👻

Tonight‘s read. I‘m loving it so far and it‘s the first in a series of 6 books! I love coming up on a new series with this many books already published!

Reviewsbylola I‘ve heard good things about this series. 2y
CoffeeK8 @Reviewsbylola good to know! 2y
Chrissyreadit I wonder why it has only 38% pick on the book link? I scrolled through and it looks like most people enjoyed it. 2y

CoffeeK8 @Chrissyreadit yeah I noticed that too... Simone recommended it on another site so I think it‘s got better reviews other places. 2y
Chrissyreadit @CoffeeK8 I look forward to hearing what you think. 2y
CoffeeK8 @Chrissyreadit I just finished it! I really liked it. Reminded me a little of Greywalker or Veiled Magic. It suffered a little from characters over explaining the world building but the rest of it was good enough to overlook that. 2y
Chrissyreadit @CoffeeK8 good to know! It is in my TBR pile on litsy. 2y

Amelia gray is just one of many #difficult women I can think name. The Graveyard queen series fits well with the season. I've read the first three and loved them. However I didn't like the end off book 3. Apparently the author didn't either because she wrote three more. Guess I need to read faster. #fallintobooks

I'm having a difficult time collecting my thoughts on this one. I almost feel like I floated through this book, like I was reading it from a distance. The story and characters are well written, but there's so many plot points opened that it took away from the main plot of the book. Definitely obvious this is the first in a series. I need time to process before I decide whether to continue with the series.

I usually avoid books that are part of a series, but for some reason, I wanted to try this one. It wasn't awesome; just ok. Not as spooky as I was expecting. Murder mystery isn't really my thing. Based on this alone, I wouldn't continue the series, but I read on GR the second one is much better, so I might give it another chance. ⭐⭐⭐ R for #LitsyAtoZ

So I love a good ghost story and I love the Graveyard queen series by Amanda Stevens. Except #3 which I thought just wrapped to quickly. That was supposed to be the end of the series but now there are 3 more. I will get around to reading them. Maybe over the cold winter months. #witchorghost #octphotochallenge (picture from TeePublic.

Entering into The Graveyard Queen Series! I'm liking how this book is starting out.

Nebklvr Ohhhh....I hope you love it! 3y
JenFowler @Nebklvr -It started to feel a little too "mystery book" like to me in the middle, but I loved the beginning and the end. I will definitely read the next book! 3y
Nebklvr If you can't get into the second book, skip to 3rd 3y

💀👀 A surprisingly spooky read! I loved it. I've already ordered the sequel. A cemetery restorer that sees the dead. A series of murders in a historic Charleston cemetery. Delicious scenery, stellar main characters, mystery, paranormal, southern setting. My favorite things.

Lakesidemusing Not a big paranormal reader, but the Charleston setting is appealing. 4y
Jess_Read_This @Lakesidemusing Her descriptions of the city were nice. If you read it, let me know what you think! Another series set in Charleston that I love is the Tradd series by Karen White. 4y
Lakesidemusing @Jess_Read_This the Tradd series is on my list! 4y

Not hair raising but flows nicely and has shocking moments . The southern accent really adds charm and life to the story
