For the past five years, Ryan Richardson has relived that terrible night. The car door ripping open, a crushing blow to the head, hands yanking him from the vehicle and his girlfriend Ali‘s scream as she‘s taken. While abroad, Ryan gets a call from his father: Ali's car has been found submerged in a lake in his hometown. Inside are two dead men & a cryptic note with five words on the envelope in Ali‘s handwriting: If something happens to me…

Ethan Frost is a visionary, a genius, every woman‘s deepest, darkest fantasy—even mine. And, somehow, I am his. He stole into my life like a dream. Turned my reality upside down and made my every desire come true—especially those I never knew I had. He demanded everything I had to give and gave me everything of himself in return. But dreams don‘t last forever, and ours is no exception.

I don‘t usually believe in coincidence. I paused this book on the evening of 7/10, approximately 1 hour before we lost our home to fire. I just turned the book back on to finish the last 40 minutes of the book, and…Keira‘s cottage was on fire. WTAF?! #SeriesLove2024 @TheSpineView @Andrew65

Keira, hired as Blighty Graveyard's new groundskeeper, lives surrounded by the dead. They watch her through the fog. They wordlessly cry out. They've been desperately waiting for help moving on―and only Keira can hear them. But not every restless spirit wants to be saved.

Sometimes the dead hate the living too much to find peace.

I love Lucy Foley‘s books. She seems to always bring together a group of people who may, or may not, know each other. These people start to disappear one by one, and are usually found dead somewhere. This book is basically the same with a twist. Francesca, the owner of the Manor, holds a secret that one of the guests knows about and plans to bring Francesca to task (in so many words). A good read.

Mr. Loury and I differ in our politics, but agree in several other ways. This is a brutally honest memoir where the author bares all: the good and the bad. He speaks of his accomplishments and his downfalls without whitewashing anything. It‘s a very intellectually engaging read. I highly recommend it.

This is the first in a series called “Gravekeeper” and it‘s a pretty good book. Instead of someone trying to fix a haunted house with an evil ghost residing there, this is a series about a woman who can see and communicate with the dead in order to help them pass on completely. I think it just might have a love interest as well. I‘m over my limit on Scribd so I can‘t continue until 7/10 😢. #SeriesLove2024 @Andrew65 @TheSpineView

And in the darkness, she can hear the unquiet dead whispering.

It‘s hard to believe ghost stories can be romantic, but this one and the previous one were. When I started the first book, I thought Joseph was going to be an obstinate, mean man. That couldn‘t be farther from the truth. The problem was he was hiding the evil that resided in his house. If you like ghost stories, this book and the first book are definitely worth reading. #SeriesLove2024 @Andrew65 @TheSpineView

This was a good book and a great ghost story. My only issue with it was the protagonist, Mars, was insufferable. Because she grew up in a home with spiritualists and (some) fake mediums, she was so close-minded and stubborn that I almost didn‘t finish the book. It did get better later, but OMG!!
