haunting me cover


Phoebe Mercer has what most people envy; a wonderful boyfriend, fantastic friends and a job in the city’s top law firm. Getting engaged is just the honey in her tea! Then she gets run over by a hot dog cart, wakes up with a concussion and the ability to see ghosts. Well, one ghost. A loud, obnoxious woman who claims to have been murdered for her vast fortune.

Soon, Phoebe is solving a mystery that not only threatens her relationships, but her career as well. As she begins to battle feelings for the ghost’s handsome nephew, she realizes quite a few people in her life are not as they seem. Slowly, Phoebe uncovers the secrets and lies around her, learning that in order to solve this mystery and be free of the ghost, she must lie herself. The only catch? The secrets Phoebe has kept from the people in her life could ruin everything for her, and her ghostly companion, in the end.

Now you don’t see this every day – get run over by a hot dog cart, sustain a concussion and now you can see ghosts?! Well that is exactly what happened to Phoebe and it isn’t like she is stuck with a nice, calm ghost. No, she gets Edie Edwards who is very high maintenance and if I could see ghosts and she was wanting me to help her….well let’s just say she should be very glad she is a ghost! Edie wore me out with her incessant chatter and demanding that Phoebe drop everything for her. But, she had a good heart too and helps Phoebe in her personal life…which ties into Edie’s death strangely enough.

The story flows along and kept my interest. I couldn’t wait to see what craziness Phoebe’s boyfriend/fiance was going to come up with next. We learn some very telling things about Riley’s character later in the book.

The mystery was intriguing and while it isn’t really solving a murder, there are many despicable characters, but also many uplifting characters too. The book is well balanced and will make a good series. In fact, it sorta leaves you hanging for the next book…or gives you a clue as to what might happen in the next book.
