I bought your book Ghostly Paws and I wanted to tell you how much I loved it. As a reviewer I tend to try to make a point to readers in hopes to get their attention and this time I want to point out to readers that authors loves it when fans drops a few lines to tell them how much they loved their book. So, this note and somewhat quick review (Oh yeah, I still have to do a quick review for them. LOL) will seem a bit odd, so please over look that tiny reviewing part.
I am friends with author Mary Kennedy and she posted this book on her Facebook. Me being a cat, mystery, and paranormal lover I just had to buy it and I have to say I loved it so much I read it in no time. I fell in love with the setting, story and the mystery. You did great job writing the middle age character Wilhelmina and the whole paranormal aspects of the story with the added with all of the cats that is still in progress. I have to admit this was the first time I have ever read a book with a POV from a cat and I loved it. I especially loved the name of the cat Pandora, but again I could be partial to that name because one of my cats name is Pandora ;) Anyhoo, back to the story, oh yeah, I can’t forget about mentioning the sheriff Striker, Oh my, he is a hot one and I hope we continue to read more about him and Willa together in the next installment.
I really enjoyed the mystery and the way Willa was always in the way trying to help solve the murder. I also enjoyed how you added the feral cats, I hope this little message will encourage some to help the feral cat population in their area. I myself trapped 5 feral cats this year and took them to get them fixed. I cat wait to see how you grow this cat colony and how they are going to help with the paranormal elements in the story. As a paranormal readers I have always felt cats just go hand and had with a good paranormal book.
So, I guess I can quit with all of this mushy love stuff and ask one important question, WHEN IS THE NEXT BOOK COMING OUT??? Yes, I want it now LOL.
If you’re a cat, mystery, paranormal and a touch of romance lover please mark this book to read. It’s on my highly recommend list. I also hope this crazy note/review will inspire you to write to the authors and tell them how much you loved their book.

From the first book we have followed Emily down a scary road of battling her evil ancestor the Druid priestess Merhia, we thought it was over with in the second book but nope, Merhia is still demanding on getting her revenge.
Ultimate Sacrifice is another edge of your seat read. My only downside was the use of the child Abby, I just can’t hack a child being used by any evil spirit. Other than that the story was great, it held my attention in many ways. I loved the characters and I loved that I got to follow Emily from teen to adult. I also have to give kudos to the author because Emily is very young when this series started out so the author had to write this character as she grew. I think she did an awesome job because you can really tell the changes in her character in each book.
This time around Emily finds out a lot more about the past of her Auntie when Skye offers to put Auntie Em under hypnosis. I’ll just say this hypnosis gives a lot of insight and it really ties everything together. As things unravel from the past things are starting to heat up as Marhia, is yet again preparing to stake claim to Jonathan. I recommend this series to anyone who loves a good edge of your seat thriller with the addition of paranormal.
A good ending for a great trilogy. Copy provided by author in exchanged for an honest review. ...more

I would love to see this in a movie. This is an excellent bone chilling thriller one that as I read I felt like I could be right there because the detail is so well written, lets just say don’t read this without a lot of light, I had goose bumps as I read. You’ll find a touch or horror, paranormal, suspense and mystery and I highly recommend this to anyone that reads any of them listed. You will also find. There are witches, ghost, a curse, reincarnation and revenge.
This is a romance story and there is some little flirty comments between Emily and Jonathan, but there is no real sex scene between them, there is mention of sex in dreams and past lives. Don’t let that discourage you from getting this book because their romance will grow in up coming books. I am one I need at least a few pages of a h/h going at it, but I didn’t miss it in this story, it was just to thrilling.
The author gives you plenty about this book on her website. Please check it out. So this is what I will tell you. When Emily first goes to England at the age of fourteen she finds herself in her aunt and uncles house in the attic with ghosts and the more she digs to find out who they are the more she finds people there just don’t want to talk about it. So Emily finds different ways to find out who the ghost are. Jonathan helps out some. You know how it goes someone tells you to stay out of the woods and guess what Emily does the opposite she goes in there to finds out more, so you know that didn’t go to well. Its when Emily comes back a few years later at the age of twenty that she finds out a whole lot more of what is going on and she also finds the one responsible for this sinister twisted ghostly tale is out for revenge and its Emily she is after.
I loved the characters the way the books flows its very easy to understand. I will add this book is part of a trilogy, so when it ends you know there is more to come. I cant wait to read the second book. ...more
Good mystery, very sweet romance with lots of humor. If you love cats you need to try this book. There is a great cast of characters to enjoy. This isGood mystery, very sweet romance with lots of humor. If you love cats you need to try this book. There is a great cast of characters to enjoy. This is a fun and light read not for those who takes their story serious. I would recommend this to PNR reader that likes their stories light on the sexual side.
This book is for people that wouldn’t mind a cat swapping souls with a human and for that cat to use that body *clears throat* for things LOL. I found Belle very witty, smart and possessive to Max. Then I found it weird for her as a cat to be checking out Ted’s junk, so like I was saying you’d have to have a taste for this book. If you can get past the cat swapping with human you'll find a sweet and humorus romance.
The downside for me was at times I found it corny. ...more
