    5sAbsolutely loved thisReview posted herehttpbookpassionforlifeblogspotcoI absolutely loved this book and devoured it in one sittingAs the synopsis tells us – Sloane Osbourne became a paranormal real estate agent so that she could search for the ghost of her dead fiancé Michael He had a thing where he would say put it off for a year and a day so Sloane has a good feeling he will come through for her tonight exactly a year and a day later and what better way to come through than a haunted house that has a potential buyer and Sloane is on the case Once there she goes about her business with her paranormal detecting kit and waits then the banging startsthen comes the cries for water then comes Michael and he tells her she needs to leave NOW But does Sloane leave? No she wants time with Michael but what she uncovers could give her time with himpermanentlyThis book was just brill I connected to Sloane straight away because she was grieving but being proactive about it by trying to hunt down Michael’s ghost You can tell that she loved him a lot and that is what was driving her on her mission to make contact and the ‘year and a day’ rule was cute In the beginning when she’s explaining how she came to be travelling to the potential haunted house my suspicion was aroused straight away; I understand why she wanted to do it and that her focus on Michael was the driving force but alarm bells started ringing straight away When she makes contact on the first night and is given her warning she did exactly as I would have – delved right into it The story that followed was an edge of the seat ride very atmospheric and you could easily picture yourself as Sloane sitting waiting in the dark for contact exploring the house with her detecting technology finding a strange basement with a chair facing an unusually clean incinerator hearing voices banging and being scared beyond anything but knowing she needs to be right where she is if she hopes Michael will come through She enlists the help of Michaels best friend who is not only sensitive to ghosts and has seen them but is also on the FBI payroll he drops everything to get to Sloane because we all know something is not right which is further proven when we meet the former owner of the house As she starts to investigate we see that the house has a sinister history than we thought but will its secrets be revealed? I also liked how as we go through the story that we get flashbacks to Sloane’s happy times with Michael which brought some insight into their relationship but also lightened up a very spooky story You could be forgiven for thinking that this is going to be a typical love tragedy where one of the couple has died and needs to deal with unfinished businessyou would be wrong though What this book is is a whole lot – filled with mystery intrigue and suspense – and it would make an excellent movie I urge you to give this book a read and be just as surprised as me by how great it is

    I have one beef with the novella I know that the normal reader wouldn’t understand what euipment for a paranormal investigation is called and what it is used for but I didn’t care too much for the info dump at the beginning about it when Sloane does her investigation of the house But once the info dump is done and the first paranormal activity happens the thrills and chills sucked me into the book It is not just a horror book with romance but ‘a serial killer who done it’ too The novella has intrigued me enough to want to read the next book in the series when it comes outRead the rest of the review at I Smell Sheep Reviews

    I found this book at the library in a display of Wisconsin authorsThis is not normally what I read but I did find it to be a good start to the Sloane Osborne series The book is about a Sloane a paranormal realtor that investigates alleged haunt housesapparently this is what the cool kids are doing purchasing haunted houses as status symbols She was engaged to be married but her fiancee died in a car accidentshe has been living a reclusive lifestyle ever sinceShe knows that Micheal's ghost will contact her within 366 days but that deadline is fast approachingpun intended The current house she is trying to sell at first yields some good results but then she realizes that she is in way over her head

    I really liked the premise of this story A paranormal real estate agent who checks to make sure haunted houses are safe to live in before she sells them? One who is looking for a chance to contact her dead fiance just one time? I'm here for that Unfortunately it wasn't well executed I found this on the Audible Escape package The narrator was okay I liked some of the voices she used for the characters but I don't think she put a lot of emotion into the story Things that should have been sad or scary came across as kind of flat She was also very slow I generally listen at 185x speed but I ended up bumping this one to 210x speedMore often than not Sloane was TSTL too stupid to live Her dead fiance's best friend Jonah is a cold case investigator with the FBI and also a strong medium She used to hunt ghosts with him until her fiance died and she retreated into herself She called him once she made first contact with the spirits in a house in Wisconsin because she suspected girls had been murdered there He asked her to wait for him before venturing back into the house or speaking to anyone about her suspicions She thinks to herself I should waitbut I'm not going to She also thinks to herself several times that she's in over her head yet she still continues on her merry way It was no surprise to me when she ended up trapped in a hole in the floor for her stupidity The villains were easily picked out from the first and honestly they were both such dumb asses I'm surprised they got away with anything as long as they did The only reason I kept reading was because I was interested in the ghosts themselves I was hoping we'd see of their backgrounds and they'd be a bigger focus of the story Sadly that wasn't the case It mostly focused on Sloane and she bumbled her way into danger There were also a lot of inconsistencies in the story Michael the dead fiance was a paragon of male worthiness and nothing could ever live up to his memoryexcept he sounded like a controlling asshole a lot of the time and she even thinks to herself at one point that things may not have worked with them long term after all Except wait he was the LOVE OF HER LIFE Things like that really pulled me out of the story and kind of drove me crazyI did really like Jonah however He kind of made the story for me though he spent time off page than on Although the premise is interesting I don't believe I'll continue on with the series Watching Sloane stumble around and make dumb decisions mostly just gave me a headache

    In this debut paranormal mystery Kat Green gives us an appealing but flawed heroine with a uniue profession she's a realtor who specializes in haunted houses What a cool premiseSloane Osborne lost her fiancé in a car accident a year before the story opens A year and a day to be precise as that specific timing was significant in their relationship As a part time ghost hunter Sloane figures Michael will finally make contact with her on the year plus a day anniversary of his death and needs a haunted house to make contact with him She flies to Wisconsin to certify and broker a haunted sale and gets than she bargained forMichael makes contact but so do all the ghosts of the girls who mysteriously disappeared and died in this house except there's no record or evidence of any of it Sloane calls her old ghost hunting partner and Michael's best friend who also happens to work for the FBI Jonah flies out to help her and protect her from her insatiable curiosity but can he keep her safe?The ghosts are creepy the bad guys ooze with slimy evilness and the haunted house scenes had me both riveted and repulsed Green does an excellent job with both her villains and the creepy factor of the restless spirits I enjoyed the main character's voice and spunk even as I got annoyed by some of her dumb choices When someone tells you not to go into that haunted house alone listen to him Horror movie cliché but oh so trueWhile I really liked the premise and the story I felt confused by some of the editorial choices The back story was woven into the novel in sometimes confusing flashbacks and at other times it felt like key bits of information might have ended up on the cutting room floor There are several wrong word choices and misspellings that should have been caught before publication as they marred otherwise riveting scenes The prior relationship between Sloane and Jonah wasn't adeuately explored and Sloane is just a little too fond of using metaphorsAll in all I enjoyed this book as a fast paced engaging thrill ride I look forward to the next book in the series and hope the editorial issues will be overcome by then

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Lovers of Paranormal I love the idea of a paranormal real estate agent This was a really good book I felt sorry for all that Sloane lost but what she gained was even better in my opinion I actually liked that the book was short just because it was drawn out Short and sweet and I really enjoyed it
