Ghost Gifts by Laura Spinella
Genre: Adult, Mystery, Paranormal, Romance
My Rating: 5 fat hearts
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.
I really didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did. It took me a bit to really get into it and, honestly, I was thinking it would be added to my DNF pile. But every time I started thinking about not finishing it, something else in the story would grab hold of me. So, by 35%, I was in. I really, thoroughly loved this book. It was light on romance, but the small amount of romance in it was very good. And that scene, (if you’ve read it, you know which scene I mean) was really, REALLY good. *sigh*
