Blurb: Seeing dead people. Haunting and being haunted. Ghosts and those trying to deal with them add a supernatural flair to these four tales of romance.

In Among the Dead, Neil Gaven sees dead people. A gentle ghost guides him to Trist, who needs his help. But Trist is tormented by spirits, so maybe together they can find a way to live among the dead.

Dei Ex Machina is the story of Sabbio, a Roman slave who was killed 1700 years ago. He’s been alone until he meets landscaper Mason. But because they’re separated by centuries, it will take a miracle to make love work.

The Mill brings a supernatural challenge to Frank Carter and his team of paranormal investigators. The owner’s personal psychic, Toby Reese, is supposed to help. Frank doesn’t have much respect for psychics, but when the dangers of the old mill threaten his team, he realizes he and Toby will have to work together to survive.

Mike Ellsworth finds himself suddenly deceased. Now he’s a ghost with lots left undone in Unfinished Business. He’s never been able to be honest with his wife. He’s never been able to tell the man he loves how he feels. He’s barely been able to admit he’s gay. If only there were a way he could make up for all he’s failed to do….

Review: 

Among the Dead by Eli Easton

This is a lovely and sweet story with a little twist.  Eli Easton’s writing is smooth and flawless and her characters are rich and full.  I loved the attention to details with the subtle blurring that at first causes confusion then clarity as the story draws to its finale.  I suppose the story has a HEA – depending on your point of view.  J It’s excellent.

5 of 5 stars

Dei Ex Machina by Kim Fielding

Kim Fielding always gives us a remarkable story location and almost always teaches me something new.  She’s a gifted story teller and this is a wonderful short story.

As compared to some of the others in this anthology, this story was a bit harder to dive into – mostly based on the separation of our MCs for most of the story.

I appreciated the history lesson and the sweet and happy ending.

The Mill by Jamie Fessenden

This was by far the “scariest” of the four stories.  I was on the edge of my seat!  I loved it!  It had a little bit of everything: sappy romance, GFY, scary and vindictive ghosts, murder and mayhem, hot sex and a happy ending!  Jamie also included a bit of real life history that was really interesting and I loved the “song” that started each chapter.  It really set a spooky mood!  Perfect for this time of year!

5 of 5 stars

Unfinished Business by BG Thomas

This was the weakest of the bunch, but still very good.  I loved the blending of modern technology with the spiritual aspect.  It was very satisfying when our MCs got their second chance.

3.5 of 5 stars

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
