[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Me and my Ghoulfriends

Rose Pressey enjoys writing quirky and fun novels with a paranormal twist. The paranormal has always captured her interest, and the thought of finding answers to the unexplained fascinates her.  When she's not writing about werewolves, vampires and every other supernatural creature, she loves eating cupcakes with sprinkles (you should have seen the one she ate on her birthday!), reading, spending time with family, and listening to oldies from the fifties. She lives in the beautiful commonwealth of Kentucky with her husband, son and two sassy Chihuahuas.

Me and my Ghoulfriends – Larue Donavan series Book #1

Author:  Rose Pressey

There's always fun to be had on a ghoul's night out.
By day, Larue Donavan is a down-to-earth bookstore owner. But by night, she's a world-renowned psychic investigator dedicated to helping lost spirits find peace. Dead people won't leave her alone and Abraham Lincoln thinks he's in charge of her lovelife.
Larue can handle ghosts and undead presidents. It's the living that drive her crazy. When Callahan Weiss moves to town, the handsome newcomer opens a coffee shop right next door. She's smitten from the start, but she's not the only one -- The boutique owner across the street has her eye on Callahan too, and uses witchcraft to fight dirty. When Callahan gets hit by a love spell, Larue will need more than a little help from her ghoul-friends to save the day...

Our Review:  [Provided by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Guest Reviewer, Carlyn McKechnie]
One of the best things about this story is the ghosts that follow Larue around. Abraham Lincoln, affectionately called Abe, is constantly trying to get her married.  He’s convinced she’s becoming an old maid (she’s only in her twenties mind you!).  Another ‘friend’ is an old lady who annoys Larue constantly, trying to get Larue to talk to her husband whom she left behind for her.  Each of the ghosts provided a giggle for me at some point.
The interactions between Mindy and Larue were hilarious as well -- as most best friend conversations are.
Larue's romance was lovely to read and I felt her pain when things started to go wrong.
Brianna was a great villain because most of us have met someone like her in our lives, which made her very easy to hate, and even funnier when the ghosts started tormenting her.
LITERAL ADDICTION’s guest reviewer gives this book 4 out of 5 skulls, and calls it “a light hearted and heartwarming story”.  The only thing that would have made it better for Carlyn was if there was more action in the middle of the story.  We would recommend this book for young adult to adult audiences, and fans of paranormal romance with a lot of wit.
