Jaclyn's Ghost is a very well written love story about Jaclyn Jade and Logan Smith. At the beginning of the story Jaclyn realizes, with the help of Logan, that she is dead. More specifically, she's a ghost. Logan died in the 1920s when the site of Sunset Apartments was a hotel. Dorlana Vann lends a great twist to the question of "where do we go when we die". "Hell" is really Earth, were we repeat our past mistakes or learn from them with each subsequent life. I really liked this take on it, of c ...more

"Fascinating madcap adventure of sleuthing!"

Jaclyn Jade, a model at the top of her career is murdered. Charles Charles, the messenger gives her three choices: return to Hell—Hell being life on earth, a continuous cycle until one gets it right; Two, she can remain a spirit, seeing Hell but only as a spectator; the third choice is to go back as an Open Spirit, figure out why she didn't make it into Heaven and if she does she will go straight to the pearly gates. But there's a catch—a time limit. I

Interesting book. I liked how the author dived right into the story where the reader, and Jaclyn, discover together that she is dead (and now a ghost). Problem is her death is actually a murder but the police write it off as suicide/drug overdose.

She is given two choices:
A. go to Hell (which is not what you, or Jaclyn, thinks it is - but that Hell is Earth) where she could begin life, a much quieter life than the one she had been leading as a model, again with a young couple that are expecting

Jaclyn's ghost is a well written and "fun" read.

Jaclyn wakes up to find a strange man in her room. She is confused and then finds out that she is dead and that the man is another ghost. His name is Logan and he lives in her apartment building.

Jaclyn was a fashion model and had a lucrative career. She finds out that she was murdered and decides not to continue on in "hell", living lifetime after lifetime to try to qualify for entry into heaven. She has a chance to redeem herself and figure out w

This is a different type of ghost story compared to others I have read. Great cast of characters. All of the ghosts and non-ghosts alike were entertaining. There were quite a few funny moments. I am not quite satisfied with the way it ended however. Don't get me wrong, everything came together rather well but I felt that it was missing something. Still a good read and I will definitely be reading more from this author.
A mystery paranormal romance filled with humorous moments and surprise twists. It takes Jaclyn losing her own life to figure out what she really wants in life and who she wants to be. Solving her own murder Jaclyn finds true friendship, love, herself, and the shocker of them all, who actually had her killed.
This book starts off slow but does pick up the pace and becomes more interesting. Jaclyn wakes up to find that she is dead. As shocking as that is she also realizes that she is a ghost. The police rule her death a suicide and Jaclyn postpones her future to play detective with a little help. Pure fiction but interesting.

I am actually kind of disappointed with this book. I expected it to be creepier than it was and I thought it almost came off almost as a silly, with moments of a chick-lit(ish) type of book. I have been wanting to read this book for a while and it was one I actually could have passed on.
