The Mary O'Reilly books are SO much better. Just read this one as a filler until the newest Mary O'Reilly comes out. Story was interesting and kept my attention, but was a little bit too out there for me. It also had the usually typos as is common with this author.

A great read with just the right amount of creepiness and a touch of romance to boot. The love story doesn't highjack the story and the paranormal elements still shine through. Some of the events seemed to fall into place a little to easily and that made the story seemed rushed, but that didn't really detract from the book too much,in my own humble opinion. I liked that I recognized the names of historical practitioners of Hoodoo and Voodoo. It made the story seem grounded in reality. I would hi ...more

You know the funny game you play with fortune cookies where you add "in bed" to the end of the fortune? If you applied that game to the sentences in this book with the phrase "and tears ran down her face" or "and she wiped away the tears" or something similar, it would be pretty much describe reading The Ghosts of New Orleans.

It's not that the book wasn't a nice read because it was, but I found myself noting the repetition of action. For me, if something is noticable enough (poor grammar, repeti

The Ghosts Of New Orleans

Well, Terri Reid has done it again. I read all thirteen of her series of the Mary O'Reilly books and was caught up from start to finish. Now in the Ghosts Of New Orleans she has captivated me once again. Anyone that enjoys a good book of the paranormal would be amiss to not read any of these books.

Love New Orleans and ghosts

This story is quite different from the Mary O'Reilly series but nonetheless intriguing and keeps the reader turning pages. There were a few twists I wasn't expecting which added to the enjoyment of the plot!

Interesting story involving past lives, evil spirits, loving spirits and a woman who helps spirits cross to the light. Eloise works for the federal government going into disaster areas to help those who died pass into the light. Eloise is afraid to love, to share yet her attraction and feelings for Paul can't be ignored. With the help of a voodoo princess and hoodoo princess Eloise faces her fears. Post Katrina New Orleans, Eloise is in the middle of the disaster when evil spirits tries to take ...more

Couldn't get into it, was bored from the start (and I usually love paranormal books). I think I got through chapter five and really didn't want to read that far.

Not interesting or well written for me. Disjointed and dull. Characters in and out constantly without anything happening. Blah .

Another great Terri Reid book. I thoroughly enjoyed the new characters and story line. I would like to see a series out of this too.

This was different, yet an enjoyable read. The premise that dead people get stuck on earth and sometimes need a little help to find the gateway to the afterlife was interesting. I also liked the Mormon Tabernacle Choir music chasing away the 'unfriendlies'. It was a nice touch.

This was very readable, very enjoyable, a good escape for a few hours book. If your someone who has to have all believable all the time. This isn't for you. Very enjoyable romp thru the paranormal .

I have a feeling this might be the author's first published work. There's some good story going on, but the writing is unpolished. The characters were a little wooden and hard to get attached to. I would probably read another in this series because I enjoyed the author's Mary O'Reilly series very much and can see how much her writing has progressed. I'd love to see another of these books written at that higher level of expertise.

great easy read if you like mysterious paranormal books. I absolutely love the passive aggressive love affair between Eloise and Paul. Susie is so hilarious with her smart remarks and sarcastic punch lined. Overall, the story line makes you want to keep reading to the end.

A big disappointment after reading the author's Mary O'Reilly series. Perhaps it was one of the author's first novels as it showed a serious lack of editing and polish. More than once I was tempted to toss it aside and move on but I stuck with it hoping for redemption at the end. No joy. Skip it and hit Ms. Reid's Mary O'Reilly series instead. It isn't great literature but it's a darn sight better than this book.

The story idea is good, but the writing needs improvement. The editing was horrible. Also, I didn't like how the author or publisher felt the need to change Marie Laveau's name. There was one instance in the book where it was correct. Again, an editing problem. The story was good, however.

Stopped reading after the first couple of chapters. It felt like a bunch of short stories cobbled together. Love her other books. Did not like this one.
