Published by Montlake Romance on March 1st 2016
Genres: Romantic Suspense
All Aubrey Ellis wants is a normal life, one that doesn’t include desperate pleas from the dead. Her remarkable gift may help others rest in peace, but it also made for an unsettling childhood and destroyed her marriage. Finally content as the real estate writer for a local newspaper, Aubrey keeps her extraordinary ability hidden—until she is unexpectedly assigned the story of a decades-old murder.
Rocked by the discovery of a young woman’s skeletal remains, the New England town of Surrey wants answers. Hard-nosed investigative reporter Levi St John is determined to get them. Aubrey has no choice but to get involved, even at the terrifying risk of stirring spirits connected to a dead woman’s demise and piquing her new reporting partner’s suspicions.
As Aubrey and Levi delve further into the mystery, secrets are revealed and passion ignites. It seems that Aubrey’s ghost gifts are poised to deliver everything but a normal life.
Ghost Gifts was kind of interesting but there isn’t much of a romance. Mostly well written but there were some trip ups with some of the phrasing she chose. It was very similar to Ghost Whisperer. Wasn’t very predictable but wasn’t surprised at the end. Still overall a pretty solid read and is a recommended read. It opened up a discussion among the group about the heroine’s reluctance to pursue the relationship with her interest.
Overall rating of 3.75 – Rounded to 4 stars for the blog.
