Not usually my genre, but it's free and the Bisbee setting sounds like fun.

I'm the type of person who loves paranormal mystery novels, but this fell short. It was paranormal (ghosts) and it was a mystery (who is the killer?), but the story seemed to drone on and on and focus on tangents that didn't add to the plot. The characters were naive and the main character, Chelsea, was weak and kind of an idiot for being touted as being from a notoriously strong, independent family that takes care of themselves.

Some parts of the book were genuinely interesting and I didn't want...more
Let me start off by saying, I just didn't like this book. Usually I try to avoid reviews like this, because they're unhelpful. I prefer to list reasons why I did/didn't so prospective readers have some insight into the novel and ideas that standout etc. but I can't... it's just a matter of preference and I didn't care for it. Overlooking the grammatical issues, I enjoyed the writing style. Some of the plot twists were cliche and predictable (kidnapper anyone?) and the sappy crazy girl love story...more

Not bad writing, just a bad story line. Too many characters that turned into too many OTHER characters. Confusing and jumped around way too much! I did not feel the ending resolved anything - just left me more confused,as the characters I could barely keep track of anyway.
Also, what ever happened to Chelsea's ex? He came back into the story and nothing with him was resolved.
Way too much going on here in this one. Good enough story/plot & pretty creepy in spots, but I started to get characters confused. If I've got the feeling I have to go back and look up someone because I can't remember who they are - then it's no longer a casual read & more of a research project. Major buzz kill.
Well written fantasy/ghost story, marred only by the ten errors I found. I was also somewhat confused by the color film until the explanation farther into the book.The author may get a list of the errors from amacd55 (at) gmail (dot) com.

This was a frightening paranormal and since it was set in Bisbee,AZ it caught my attention reading about an area I am familiar with. Viewing times gone by in through the lense of an old camera was a captivating device.
not as good as the Laura cardinal series (this book is not part of the series and is the last book written before the series started) but still good. impeccably written as always!

I read this author's detective novels and enjoyed them. This, however, is a Stephen King imitation, and not a very good one.
Reportedly her first book. A very unusual, novel and imaginative storyline. Great entertainment!!
