GIVIN' UP THE GHOST
By

BLURB:

Friend or Foe?

Murder victim Bart Bagley is not content to merely roll over in his grave. He wants his murderer caught and he wants teenage ghost whisperer, Indigo Eady, to help him.

It becomes obvious that Bart’s temper led to more than one disagreement, but is it enough to want him dead? With nothing but a cold trail and a hot list of “friendly” suspects, Indigo and her friends race to find the killer before they become the next victims.

An Indigo Eady Paranormal Mystery

Indigo Eady is not clumsy. At least, that’s what she keeps telling everyone. Can she help that the overactive spirit community of Sabrina Shores causes her psychic abilities to short-circuit? It’s unfortunate that her cute new friend Badger is often on the receiving end of her mishaps. At times, she is positively hazardous to his health. Even so, sparks start to fly in more than one direction...

  

MY REVIEW:
I was pleasantly surprised reading Givin' Up the Ghost, by Gwen Gardner, I expected a simple ghost story, but Gwen filled the story with the unexpected. 

A murder mystery, centered around a small town in England, where a teenage American girl lives with her uncle and cousin. She is not the run of the mill teenager, as she has a connection, through her family line, with the paranormal....She can see and converse with ghosts, and this makes her life anything but normal!

Indigo teams up with her cousin Simon and a few friends, which includes the children of the ghost, Bart Bagley to find and hunt down his killers.

Thrown into this mix, is a sweet romance between Indigo and the son of Bart Bagley.

An interesting young adult paranormal read, which keeps readers guessing about what will happen next.

The Green-Eyed Monster

The Green-Eyed Monster

by
Goodreads
Amazon
Barnes & Noble 

BLURB:
Martin Smith and John Becker: bestselling authors with ordinary names and extraordinary minds. Rivals since childhood, they live in the same town and are famous for their uncanny similarity in physical manner and literary voice. When one of them ends up dead at the other's home, an investigation is launched into their dark past, revealing a series of troubling stories from their childhood, adolescence and careers, throughout which lurks the presence of an authorial entity with roots beyond our time or dimension – a sinister entity with far-reaching designs.

MY REVIEW: 

Although Green Eyed Monster is not the type of book I would normally read, it held my interest and I enjoyed the story.

It delves into areas of evil with a supernatural concept, involving butterflies and the dark forces, of what I presume is the devil.

The story ventures in the human psyche, exploring the reasons for the choices humans make at the different crossroads in their lives, giving an explanation as to why a certain pathway is chosen, questioning fate.

The Green Eyed Monster starts with a scene involving a murder, investigation which leads into introducing the various characters involved in the story, divulging how their lives are entwined and directed by manipulation of a dark force, which is working behind the scenes.

The  Green Eyed Monster by Mike Robinson, is well written and holds the attention of it's reader through to the end.
