Review by: Alex Fairfax on July 02, 2013 :
Catherine is a realtor (estate agent for British readers) who has a haunted house on her hands. This doesn’t alarm her, as she is used to seeing ghosts, although the unpleasant state of the recently deceased spirits (they died nasty deaths) freaks her out. Usefully, she has a homicide detective, Jake, for a boyfriend and together they uncover the murderer.

This is froth, but it is delightful froth. The author skilfully combines a light-hearted touch with serious moments, and produces a convincing little mystery, choc a bloc full of convincing characters and interesting incidents, although there are perhaps one or two sections which are told rather than dramatized. The ending was totally unexpected and almost unbearably sweet and poignant.

I shall definitely read more.

Third story about Catherine, real-estate agent who can see ghosts.
Really nice story, I really like the development from one story to the next, I'd definitely advice people to read the stories in order.
Though the first story of the series was rather simple, the stories are getting more complex as more characters are added and the characters are fleshed out more. Some of the stuff on ghosts is original, but the actual murders remain a bit simple and unimaginative. I very much liked the ending of the story, I've been feeling a bit down and Monson's stories really are feel-good stories that cheer you up (even though they are about ghosts).
I'm very curious to read the next story. The characters are starting to develop more and we are getting to know more about ghosts as well. It would be lovely if Monson would continue the series and perhaps publish all stories in a single volume at some point.

I was given a digital copy of this book from LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review. I do not know the author. All opinions expressed are my own.

This is the second novella in this series. Catherine is a sensitive to murdered ghosts. Catherine, a real estate agent, and her boyfriend, Jake, a homicide detective team up again to solve another murder. Of course, Catherine's good friend, Camilla is also in this story and helps Catherine & Jake.

This time, instead of being two ghosts that were killed on prom night, it's a ghost, Jason, stuck in a house that Catherine is trying to sell. Together Catherine, Jake and Camilla work to solve the mystery and help Jason.

I like that the stories are short. Even so, the characters are developed enough to bring the reader into the story believably. This story of ghosts is not like all the other ghost stories and that makes it very enjoyable.

Review by: Rachelle Born on Dec. 26, 2012 :
What drew me into this novella was the unique approach the author took with ghosts and those who are sensitive to them. Instead of floating around room to room scaring people, these ghosts are anchored to the spot where they died. This is a good quick read, and I think that even though it’s short, it’s the right length. I feel like turning the plot into a full novel might be too much.
*It’s not incredibly important, but if you’re able to read Ghosts of the Past first, do so. Some of the characters and back stories mentioned in Ghost Lovers appear in Ghosts of the Past. You won’t be lost if you don’t read that one first, but it would help things make more sense.

I won a copy of this ebook, thank you Jane Monson. Interesting short story of Catherine who is sensitive to ghost, but not just any ghost, murdered ghost! I enjoyed her interactions with the ghost she met in the haunted house that she is trying to sell. Can read in an afternoon easily as it is a very short book.

Review by: Sharon Matthews on Dec. 12, 2012 :
A quirky short story about Catherine and her ability to sense and talk to ghosts.
I enjoyed the way the mystery of the story built and I wanted to know what had happened to Jason Geiss. With the help of Catherine's boyfriend Jake and her friend Camilla, Catherine manages to solve the mystery.
A good short read, not scary and a good conclusion.

It's ok if you want a quick read for a rainy afternoon. It's just that is so short you don't have time too really get into the characters.
Still, I like how is different from the typical ghost stories.
