                              Today's review is on Me and My Ghoulfriends by Rose Pressey

As you will see, I have read Me and My Ghoulfriends after I have read Ghouls Night Out.  This of course is the wrong order, but none the less entertaining.  I must say however, I liked Ghouls Night Out a bit more.  If I had read them in the correct order I would have found some things a bit repetitive, but that's what made the second book a good stand alone book to begin with.

In Me and My Ghoulfriends, we are introduced to Larue Donavan.  A small book shop owner during the day and ghost hunter in the evenings.  With her gift of being able to see and talk to the dead she finds herself amongst some famous "friends." Abraham Lincoln to just name one.

When the handsome Callahan Weiss moves into town and opens a coffee shop next door, Larue is instantly smitten.  She's not the only one however.  Brianna, the boutique owner across the street has her eyes on Callahan herself and will stop at nothing to have him, including casting a spell on him.

It's not enough that Larue has to help the four spirits hanging around her to cross over, she has almost been hit by a car, had a sign just miss falling on her and has been poisoned by chocolate.  Now she has to deal with the hurt of watching Callahan follow Brianna around like zombie.

Everything works out in the end though.  With the help of the local coven, Larue is able to lift the spell Callahan had on him, Brianna is dragged out of town, and all of the spirits cross over to the great beyond.  Callahan even asks her out for another date after first thanking her for saving him.  Just as everything seems to be coming together though, Larue gets a phone call.  Her friends need her help and not with picking out a good book.

  1. Another great gothic novel:

    Powerful and evocative, this postmodern Book of the Dead is for mystics, witches, goths, and anyone attracted to the beauty and mystery of death—a vital and transformational force that is integral to our daily lives.

    Become familiar with this intrinsic, yet denied, aspect of our lives as you contact your spirit companion, meditate on gravestone sculptures, create a necromantic medicine bag, and keep a personal book of the dead. Drawing on the wisdom of shamans, magicians, Tibetan Buddhists, and ancient Egyptians, Michelle Belanger illuminates death as a gateway to change and regeneration. On this life-affirming journey, you will visit the “Otherside,” reach out to spirits, and become a walker between worlds to experience healing and empowerment.
