Synopsis: Riley Smith is not your average 17 year old high school senior. She has what some may call a gift and others may call a curse. Riley sees dead people. Since Riley’s father is the town’s mortician the dead seem to follow him home to Riley, where Riley helps them with whatever they need to cross over. Dealing with a new town, new school, her dad’s alcoholism, missing her dead mom and two new troubled spirits that entered her life, Riley feels like she’s losing it.
The two new dead people in her life are different than the others that she has encountered. Hayden is a beautiful guy and is the same age as Riley. He also has abilities that other ghosts don’t have such as; Riley can kind of feel Hayden’s touch and he’s not listed in the obituaries. Abby is a very tormented soul. Some days Abby is dressed up nice because of Riley’s dad, others she looks beat up and suffering. Riley also has the ability to feel the spirit’s emotions and she realizes Abby’s death was more tragic than a mere accident!
Hayden vows to help Riley find out what happened to Abby. The only problem is the increasing feelings that bubble up between the two. Riley knows she shouldn’t fall in love with a ghost but Hayden’s soul is so beautiful and kind.
While facing all her obstacles, Riley meets strong willed classmate Kelsey. The two girls share grief and other issues and become instant best friends. The two girls battle high school drama, boys and hard emotions.
Will Riley be able to help Hayden and Abby cross over? Will Riley be able to discover what really happened to Abby? Will Riley be able to let Hayden go and set him free and vice versa? Will Kelsey and Riley be able to cope with life and deep rooted issues? Read this YA Paranormal book to find out!
Review: OMG! I loved this book! One Foot in the Grave made me smile, laugh, made the hairs on my neck stick up, and warmed my heart. I loved the characters in this book! Riley was a down to earth girl and knew she has flaws but loves others intensely. Riley is such a compassionate person. Kelsey was strong willed and loving. Hayden was another fantastic character and made me wish he was alive as well! He was so open minded, compassionate and just wanted the best for Riley even if that meant setting Riley free!💖 The reason I am not giving this book 5 stars is because the ending. The ending left me with a cliffhanger and I admit, I can be impatient! At times, the story felt like there was a tad too much going on but overall still was a smooth and well rounded story. This title was perfect for the holiday! I highly recommend this title and can’t wait until the next one is released!!!
I just wanted to vent for a moment. I just took 40 minutes of my time to write an awesome review of a book I just finished! I had the great GIFs and tags everything was done and fantabulous. Then mysteriously The Wicked WordPress app of the West goes on a psychotic tantrum and deletes my whole post!!!😨😨😤😤 I mean WTF! I just spent all that time for it to be deleted and nowhere to be found. I put all that time and effort into a long perfected review and then BAM all gone! Fuckin’ A!
So just a heads up I will be posting my reviews later on when I can calm my tits. I hope everyone has a great day. Rant over…😒
Over and out…

I want to give a huge thank you to E. Michael Helms for providing me with a copy of Deadly Spirits in exchange for an honest review! Michael is an amazing author and such a kind southern gentleman! You can find his blog at https://emichaelhelms.wordpress.com
Synopsis: PI Mac McClellan is dragged to a Palmetto Paranormal Society outing by his girlfriend Kate. Mac is sarcastic and completely a skeptic when it comes to said “ghosts” but will do anything for Kate. The society members split up to investigate an old hotel but are shocked when the society president is found with his neck broken and dead.
Suspciously, nobody heard the president fall to his death. The president’s current girlfriend is found next to his body screaming! After the police process the scene they rule the death as an accident.
When Mac is told about the accidental ruling, it does not sit well with him. If the man fell down the stairs by accident wouldn’t they hear him tumbling down the stairs? Suddenly, the president’s girlfriend is found dead and it is ruled as a suicide.
The two deaths both occurred at Palmetto Paranormal Society outings! Mac doesn’t believe for a second this is a coincidence and takes matters in his own hands. Mac’s veteran gut instinct puts him on the investigation but death and murder attempts are full blown in this southern town. Will Mac be able to figure out whodunit and save his own ass in the process? Read Deadly Spirits by E. Michael Helms to find out!
Review: Wow!!! This book was fantastic and I give it without hesitation 5 out 5 mysterious stars! I had to put this book off for a little bit because I got sick but started reading it last night. I stayed up all night turning pages to this fun mystery until I finished but it was worth the sleepless night! This book made me smile, laugh, gave me the jeepers creepers and warmed my heart. Mac’s character is fantastic! He is the epitome of a southern gentleman.
Mac has his faults but he is such a good hearted southern man. I also thoroughly enjoyed his sense of humor and his love for Kate. I agree with many women in this book that Kate is a lucky woman! I also enjoyed Kate’s compassionate spirit. Dakota was also a fantastic character with her rugged past but a custom personality fitted with mouth of a sailor. I loved the characterization in Deadly Spirits.
I loved how this book had me turning pages and at the edge of my seat with suspense. This was the perfect novel for the Halloween season. Even though Deadly Spirits is Book 4 in the series, you can definitely read this book as a standalone basis. This book gives you just the right amount of details about the character’s past so you don’t feel like your missing something.
I will definitely not be reading Deadly Spirits as a standalone. I can’t wait until I get the chance to devour the rest of this series! I loved your writing Mr. Helms and Mac’s southern chivalrous personality! I will follow you anywhere!😊📚❤
Hey guys I know this is a complete random post but this girl(yours truly) has been having some issues with rebloggging post from my favorite bilbliophiles and authors! Sometimes I can go to the web version of the post and be able to push the reblog button and times like now I can’t reblog anyone’s post because the reblog option doesn’t show up. This happens 90 percent of the time for me!!! So my blogger loves my question is, is there another way to reblog other’s posts?
Thanks for any feedback my loved and I promise I will have more book love and reviews coming out soon! 😊 Still been battling being sick so my reading schedule is behind!😱 I hope everyone has a fantastic week! You guys rock!! 🎸✌😎
