The Ghost and the Graveyard
Geneviene Jack

 Blurb: Grateful Knight isn’t looking for love when she moves into a rent-free house on the edge of a graveyard. At twenty-two, all she wants is to recover financially so she can move back to the city where she belongs. But sparks fly when the gorgeous cemetery caretaker, Rick, introduces himself and mentions his suspicion that her new house might be haunted. Her attraction to him seems supernatural, and despite her resolve to not get involved, she literally can’t keep her hands off him.

When things in Grateful’s house start moving on their own, another man enters her life, Logan, a sexy ghost with a dark secret. He says Rick isn’t what he seems, and indulging her passion for him could cost her soul.

One thing’s for sure, magical forces are at work in the tiny town of Red Grove, and they’re converging on Grateful. Life will never be the same once she’s forced to choose between the ghost and the graveyard.

Uncaged Review: When Grateful needs to make a fresh start, she moves into a rent-free house that her real estate father owns and is in process of selling. Needing to take a break, and try to pay off the extravagant bills her ex left her with, this seems like a dream come true. The house borders on a cemetery and the very hot and sexy Rick, is the caretaker and sparks fly. And that’s not her only issue. The house seems to be haunted with a very nice looking ghost. But both the ghost and Rick may not be what they seem…

This was a fun, original story that brings a fresh look to the paranormal genre. Grateful is likable although not very realistic. When she discovers she has powers of her own, there wasn’t a lot of time for her to learn to wield them, it would have brought more believability to the story to have her struggle a bit with it. 

All in all, it’s a good read – although the ending was a bit lackluster and underwhelming – with the attempt to get you moving on to the next book in the series. Reviewed by Cyrene
