Claire Summers awoke in a doctor’s office, heart pounding in her chest, blouse hiked up around her belly. She watched in confusion as a dark-haired woman moved an ultrasound paddle over her exposed stomach. “Claire,” said the woman, her badge identifying her as Dr. Greenwald, “your baby’s going to be okay.” She turned her head, scanning the room. They were alone. “I found ...more

I don't do this very often anymore, but I was given this audiobook in exhange for an honest review. I am a fan of the author, Joe DeRouen, so I already anticipated that I'd enjoy it. Either that, or I'd be incredibly disappointed and it would require me to unlike his fanpage and pretend he never existed in the first place.

Okay, so I've been meaning to read this book for a while. And I planned on reading it when I acquired it. But I completely forgot that I had it already, because I'm horrible pe

Memories of a Ghost by Joe DeRouen takes the reader on a whirlwind, yet contemplative, ride deep into the depths of zombies, ghosts, and the eerie time and space between this world and the next. The fast-paced novel starts with protagonist Claire escaping from a clinic after a sonogram because she is certain that someone is trying to kill her. She doesn’t remember who she is and sets out to figure out her life and save herself. She meets an African-American man wandering in the park and soon rea ...more

The best ghost story I've read in many years.
A while ago, I reviewed another of Joe's books, Small Things. I loved it, so when he asked me to beta read his upcoming release, set in the Small Things universe, well, what's a guy to do?
In case you don't know what beta reading is, it's the final phase of error checking before the book is finally released. So, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the manuscript. I am intensely pedantic, but the book read incredibly well.
The story-line, howeve

This book surprised me. Not at all what I expected from the title. Claire wakes up to find herself being treated by a Doctor who says her baby is fine. Well, this is a shock to Claire because she has no idea who or where she is! She comes out fighting! The doc (Claire's friend since grade school) is surprised when Claire "kung fus" the orderlies and runs from the clinic. Not sure where she is, Claire runs until she is exhausted and ends up at a park. Slowly she realizes she must figure out who s ...more

I was lucky to win this book from Joe DeRouen at a Halloween Facebook event.
If you think this is your standard ghost story then you will be completely wrong.
The book introduces you to Claire who whilst having a pregnancy scan, loses her memory. Throughout this book, you get to know about her life and the relationship with her abusive husband and her best friend Lessie who happens to be a doctor. Thrown into the story are two teenagers, a geek named Farris and a popular girl Sabrina, who with the

I've been so busy, it took me a while to read this book. This is one of the few times I didn't mind. Memories of a Ghost sucked me into a world that I didn't want to leave. It's difficult for indie authors to get a name because people simply don't want to give them a chance. If you only give one indie author a chance this year, give to Joe. I honestly don't know how he doesn't have publishers stalking him with a contract. This book isn't just about a woman with amnesia. This is a book about the ...more

I started out being a bit confused with this story. A lot of characters and questions about who did what and where. However, once I got through to the 3rd or 4th chapter, I was beginning to see the big picture. I also have to admit that there is a bit of a sexual situation which surprised me with this author. Not that it's a bad thing just surprising if you have ever read his other stories. All in all though, it was a good read. Kept my interest throughout. Well developed characters and a storyl ...more

Hard for me to stay on top of who was who and various storylines that took a bit too long to connect for my taste. Guess I was thinking it would be more like Small Things and Threads. Glad I stuck with our till the end because it wrapped up nicely.
