Ghost for Sale

It is National Nut Day!  I am actually not allergic to nuts (it is a miracle) and I enjoy cashews (especially cashew brittle--homemade).  I have been taking it easy today.  Yesterday wore me out. Everyone needs a relaxing day now and then.  I got a wonderful package in the mail yesterday.  I received a copy of Writing All Wrongs by Ellery Adams.  It is the latest book in A Books by the Bay Mystery series and it will be released on November 3, 2015.  I am looking forward to reading it.  If you enjoy Ellery Adams' books, you can follow her on Amazon (and get updates).

Ghost for Sale by Sandra Cox is a humorous, paranormal romance.  Caitlin King is eighteen years old and it is the summer before her first year at Virginia Tech.  She is living with her cousin, Marcy Van Lier in her families’ guest house.  A package arrives for Marcy and it is the ghosts she purchased on eBay (who buys ghosts on eBay).  They open the box and one of the vials is broken.  Marcy opens the second vial, and Caitlin smells cinnamon and lime.  She also feels a fiery sensation on her skin.  Marcy believes she has been conned and is going to demand the return of her $6,000 ($3,000 for each ghost).  A little while later when Caitlin is alone, she hears a voice.  She turns around and there is a gentleman (he is from 1866).  Liam O’Reilly was the ghost in the unbroken vial.  For some reason only Caitlin can see and hear him. 

Liam is stuck in this world because of his twin sister, Anna.  Anna O’Reilly was the ghost in the other vial but she escaped somewhere between Virginia and Florida.  Anna was killed on her wedding day, and she is just desolate.  Anna will not move on without her fiancé, William.  But some malevolent spirit is keeping the two apart.  Caitlin and Liam will work to bring Anna and William together, so the three spirits can move on.  But will Caitlin want Liam to move on?  Can they find out what the bad ghost wants to keep Anna and William apart?  You will just have to read Ghost for Sale to find out what happens.

I enjoyed reading Ghost for Sale.  I laughed my way throughout the whole book.  It is a little silly, but it is not over-the-top.  The ending will make you sigh happily.  Ghost for Sale is easy to read.  I liked the characters (especially Liam) and the writing.  I give Ghost for Sale 4 out of 5 stars.  If you are looking for a light, fun book to read, check out Ghost for Sale.  To see what other books Sandra Cox has written, check out her page on Amazon.

I received a complimentary copy of Ghost for Sale from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

I am currently reading Counting Stars by Kathleen Long (it is just so-so).  Make sure you take a moment out of your day and do something for yourself.  We all live such hectic lifestyles and are always on the go.  Everyone needs some time to themselves to just relax (and be alone).  Have a good afternoon and Happy Reading!
