Okay, so in place of Abe and Mae West, and Elvis… we get Marilyn Monroe.  I believe that Miss Pressey did a good job bringing out the sex symbol in her story line. 😉

Things get much darker and another psychic becomes of importance. With the shadow people out to get her, she needs to figure out the psychic, the girl who’s interested in witchcraft and how to keep a relationship with the sexy coffee shop owner, oh and friendship with her bestie.

Though, I give this book 5 dragon paws or stars… there is one thing that I’m disappointed with…I mean seriously who leaves off a story like that? With- the end? There needs to be one more book in the series…especially after what happened during the investigation with the other psychic! So, Miss Pressey, I request another book…please?! ^_^ Thank you in advance.

This is a darker reading for anyone who likes to read about romance, ghosts, and creepy homes. I highly recommend. A good continuation to book 3.

Okay, so in place of Abe and Mae West, we get Elvis. It was hilarious reading the part where Larue sees Elvis for the first time. I was giggling!

Though with Elvis around, we also get a case where a TV crew is involved. That’s not all, it suddenly got dark…the story. Things are a little different in this one, we get bad spirits, case of an ex-girlfriend, and exorcism. This story is more action packed and more interesting… mainly due to so many things going on. ^_^

Good luck to Larue with everything!

This is a darker reading for anyone who likes to read about romance, ghosts, and mediums. I highly recommend. A good continuation to book 2 and it starts off right where book 2 ended. ^_^

Okay, so Abe moved on and Mae West takes his place. Larue is one lucky gal to get all the attention from famous ghosts.

It gets more serious for Larue in this one. Not only is she still not lucky in love (again someone is after Callahan), but also there’s a new guy in town. With her past experience from her last case and learning that witchcraft exists, Larue, is confused, angry, and determined to yet again fight for the man that she’s interested in. It doesn’t help that her best friend, Mindy, suddenly hates her. Larue is in for another big ride!

Larue is getting better at solving the complex life that she lives, but still is a little slow to realizing who is behind the mischief.

Oh, and of course, she gets two other ghosts who have opinions on everything, including a young man who is in love with Larue. I loved his (Anthony’s) character, he added entertainment to the read.  Also, having a recently departed ghost helped for Larue because she had to handle less stress. I mean ghosts are stressful…the way that they don’t leave her alone that is. 😉

This is a light reading for anyone who likes to read about romance, ghosts, and mediums. I highly recommend. A good continuation to book 1 and it starts off right where book 1 ended. ^_^

This was a funny read. I really liked how Miss Pressey depicted Abe Lincoln. That was actually why I chose to read it…after I read the part where the president gives dating advice to a medium.

One minus of the story line is that the main character, Larue Donavan, was a little slow to solve the mystery of what was happening to her love interest, Callahan. Though, after one finishes this novel, one may get why she was so slow at it, but her best friend, Mindy, was faster than the medium.

What’s different about this ghost story, you ask?

Well for starters, you get to spend time with Abe Lincoln. Two, you get to spend time with Larue, who knows a lot about being a medium and ghosts and never ever thought about any other type of paranormal activity. Another thing was that after each mission, she would take the ghosts with her…as long as she had room in her car for them that is.

This is a light reading for anyone who likes to read about romance, ghosts, and mediums. I highly recommend.

This was SUCH a refreshing read. This novel is about Hadley, a female vampire who is unlike any vampire that I’ve read about. She prefers champagne to blood, hates breaking nails, and when she fights- it’s more of a cat fight than a serious fight with punches, grunts, and curses.

And, yes, just like on the cover, she keeps her clothing in a coffin. Totally priceless! Good Job, Rose!

If I say any more, that would give away the story. Anyway, I loved the characters, plot, and Hadley the most. If you guys want to read about a different type of vampire, seriously download it and start reading. It was such a pleasure.

 

Book Review: Forever Charmed (Halloween LaVeau #1)

This is another great one that is available on Amazon to download for free about witches, vampires, covens, and something called the Underworld. What drew me to the book was the main heroine, Hallie or Halloween. I’m not sure how she is, but I do know that Rose made her easy to relate to. It was a first time for me to read about a witch who was bad with magic so it was a new experience.

Hallie inherits her grandmother’s house, which she turns into a bed and breakfast. Soon after, she gets three visitors, and all of them are hiding things from her. And, only one of them paid for the room so Hallie didn’t even make any real money off of them. Besides inheriting the house, she inherits three books which create a whole new turn in her life. Basically, I really liked the story.

The story is written well, with interesting twists, and hot men. However, the reason why I did not give it a five dragon paw rating was because it was a little slow for me. There was a moment that probably we all were waiting for, to meet Mara and that zoomed fast. I didn’t think that it would be that easy and expected to see more of her, though, maybe we will be in the next books. I am interested in buying the rest of the books in the series ($3.99 on Kindle), but not right away.

I highly recommend to the readers  (18+ years) who have an interest in paranormal romance, witches, and spooky houses with secrets.
