Review by: Sheila Deeth on March 17, 2014 :
Kellan didn’t really intend to go to a séance, but it was hard to get out of it once her friend had brought her there. Besides, the experience might give her a story to ease her writer’s block. But Kellan and her friend both get more than they expect when they ignore these warning signs. This “spirit virgin” finds herself “typing at a rate of speed she’d never known herself capable” while a dead young man insists on invading her dreams. Meanwhile a film crew investigate life after death, and two storylines are set to converge.

In a small town where church-goers, and especially Kellan’s boyfriends’ mother, really don’t approve of the paranormal, Kellan’s growing insistence on the reality of what she’s seen, and the need to do something about it, soon leave her ostracized and alone. Author Sheila Englehart handles the conflict deftly and honorably, with pleasing quiet humor, touches of honest faith and doubt, and great characters with genuine concern for each other.

The plot’s intriguing. The lifestyles of TV host and house-cleaner are equally convincingly portrayed. And the story’s an enjoyable blend of urban fantasy with very thought-provoking real-world “warning signs.”

Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get a free ecopy of this novel and I’m just sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it.
