Book Review for In Another World by Kelli A. Wilkins

 In Another World by Kelli A. Wilkins 

ebook, 293 pages

Published January 23rd 2022


Taken from Goodreads: Disgraced psychic medium Julie Kershaw has finally met her soul mate. The problem is he’s dead… and his spirit haunts the car she just bought.

The spirit of Detective Eddie Mahoney is determined to find his killer and needs Julie’s help. At first, she refuses. She’s tired of being called crazy and swore she’d never use her abilities to speak to the dead again—even if Eddie is handsome and charming.

Eddie persuades Julie to contact his former partner, Lou Kaplonski, to ask him to reopen his case. Skeptical, Lou dismisses Julie as a fake—until she proves she can communicate with the dead—and he finds out Eddie has a lot to say.

Julie channels Eddie’s spirit and together with Lou, the unusual trio tracks down leads and follows clues to solve Eddie’s murder. The case takes them down a dark and dangerous path filled with secrets, where nobody can be trusted.

As they work to find his killer, Julie falls for Eddie. Funny, smart, and sexy, Eddie is the guy of her dreams—and he doesn’t look or act the least bit dead. To her surprise, Eddie discovers a clever way they can be together, and they begin an ethereal romance.

When Lou’s investigation brings him too close to the killer, his life and Julie’s are put in danger—and Eddie may be the only one who can save them. 

My Thoughts:  I love this book.  It was fun, unique, and kept me entertained the entire time I was reading it.  I loved the ghost in the car, Eddie, and how he figured out how to interact with Julie.  I giggled a couple of times but mostly I just loved their relationship.   When Lou entered the story, he was perfect.   He responded how most people would, especially if they are police.  He was rough, gruff, and needed time to process all that Julie told him.

I love the romance part of the story.  That was a surprise to me, I could not see how a living person could fall in love with a ghost and have it work out.  They find interesting ways to make it so they can be together.   Eddie and Julie were right for each other, and it was wonderful that they could figure out how to be together. 

In Another World is a great mystery, thriller, paranormal book.  Three of the genres that I look forward to reading.  I definitely recommend picking up your own copy of the book.
