I have to get my hands on the first book. The style is unique, written from a time long gone but modern it's a curious eclectic twist with a unique storyline that caught my by surprise numerous times.

It's hard not to fall in love with Franklin, he's gentle and innocent and a real old fashioned gent. He isn't like the modern dreamy stud muffins, which is a refreshing change to have a guy whose down to earth and loveable as a person rather than the most endearing feature being his muscles.

Beware

Another one that Leah Cutter knocks out of the park!

In this one, Franklin's ghosts are coming back after finding their peace. He thinks that maybe using Eddie's blade on them might set them to rest but a crazy doctor comes and steals it from him. Franklin has to stop the doctor before he misuses the blade's power.

Another cosy ghost story, only this time Franklin defeats a human and saves an ancient artefact as well. Fortunately, he still has his popcorn and his girlfriend.

A good story idea, but I would've preferred a little more development.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a cute ghost story in honour of Friday the 13th! I say cute because the story follows a nice farmer and his ghost adventures in the midst of his interactions with family and his girlfriend, Julie. It felt for the most part like a nice, wholesome story.

I didn't read the first book in the series and that doesn't seem to have hampered my reading at all. The author gives enough information in this book on

This is a continuation of the Popcorn Thief but can be read alone.

Franklin continues to work with ghosts that have problems passing through, somehow they get confused of what they're supposed to do so he just helps them along. But now instead of being there and needing help, they howl loudly and look horrible--where their eyes were are now dark holes, like they've lost their souls.

So Franklin with the help of his brother, unbury an obsidian knife, thinking that will help

Ghosts haunt Franklin, and he helps them move on. Now, they're no longer moving on but instead are coming back, howling and hollow. What Franklin has to do now is find out why, and then stop it...

I like the premise of the book. The characters were okay, if a bit thin, but maybe that's just because Franklin's basically a nice guy, the book's entirely in his POV, and most people just aren't basically nice. More seriously, though, there just didn't seem to be enough plot here to make a novel. It f

Franklin is a ghost whisperer who helps souls pass on but when those passed over souls start coming back, howling mad well something just has to be done about it. Told with a southern flair reminiscent of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novels and with the supernatural edge and plenty of action to match This story is a treat to read. I hope there are more stores of Franklin to come.

Story review......

Interesting story. Not something I usually would read but the idea of it sounding interesting and fun to read.

Narrator review......

The narrator was pretty good at bringing life to the characters
