REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

Over My Dead Husband's Body by Etta Faire (27)

AMAZON

Carly was thrilled when her ex-husband left her his house after he died. (It was even better that the man was dead, honestly.) But the inheritance meant moving back to the small lakefront town of Landover, a place she said she’d never return to. 

There was something strange lurking underneath that seemingly calm and cozy town.

And, as soon as she opens the door to her free house, she figures out why they say nothing is ever free in life. Her ex-husband’s ghost is hovering in her living room, same snotty tone as before, same pretentious beard he always kept perfectly combed.

He’s haunting the place, wanting her to help him solve his murder, by channeling with him to relive it moment by moment. He tells her it will be like she’s him, living through his memories while looking for clues.

Little does Carly know, this is just the beginning. There are many ghost-clients in Landover exactly like her ex. And each m…
