Ghost Gifts by Laura Spinella

Kindle Edition, 386 pages
Published March 1st 2016 by Montlake Romance  
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.

My Thoughts…

I love Laura Spinella.    Her books never disappoint and Ghost Gifts is no exception.      There is mystery, romance, family, and so much more.     I read and read and read until my tablet needed to be charged and I had to put it down.     As soon as it was charged I picked it up and had to finish the story.

The mystery in Ghost Gifts is wonderful.    The who done it story was captivating.   I took guesses, I changed my mind, and I was so wrong.    It took until the very end for me to piece it all together.   The only thing I did know was that the obvious choices could not be the right ones.    

There were flashbacks throughout the story.     Sometimes these can make the story confusing; Laura Spinella has a talent with these flashbacks.    They flowed with the rest of the story perfectly.     There was no confusion as to what was a flashback and what was happening in the current time.    I found the storyline easy to follow.   The story never lost momentum.     Actually, the flashbacks added so much to the story with the history that was learned about Missy and her life.    

This is an amazing book!   I recommend getting your copy today.
