Goodreads Synopsis:

Her dad’s an alcoholic.  Her mom passed away when she was young.  She sees dead people.  Can seventeen-year-old Riley Smith’s life get any crazier?  Yes it can.

When Riley’s attempt to help a spirit leads her to the discovery that the young woman’s death wasn’t an accident, she finds herself face-to-face with the killer.  And just when things seem like they couldn’t get any more complicated, she’s visited by another ghost, a boy her age, whose smile makes her melt.  Her job is to convince him to pass over, but her heart doesn’t want to let him go.

giphy-38that would be me wanting the book

I literally screamed when I received C.C. Hunter’s newsletter in my inbox. If you don’t know this, I am a huge C.C. Hunter fan. Literally, I will read anything she comes out with. I absolutely loved her Shadow Falls Series/Spin-Off. I love the way C.C. Hunter writes her world and characters. She just knows how to write an awesome YA Paranormal Series filled with angst, mystery, suspicion, and some romance.

While reading through the newsletter, she first mentioned another book that comes out in 2018 which I am excited for but I’ll do a WoW for that one sooner to release date. However, when I kept scrolling through and saw The Mortician’s Daughter a trilogy. I almost fell off my chair!! And it comes out on Halloween, during my favorite season of all time.

C.C. Hunter is no stranger to writing characters who can see ghost so I know this is going to be amazing! She knows how to write ghost and their stories are always complex!

i would love to know what you think!

  1. Oh great pick for this book Gretchen. 😀 I read one of CC Hunter’s previous series a few years ago now, I can’t say I remember much about it but I do remember I really enjoyed it, I think it was the Born at Midnight series?
    Either way this book sounds really good, the premise of a girl who can see ghosts reminds me of Meg Cabot’s Mediator series, which I loved, but The Mortician’s Daughter seems a little darker and I definitely need to add it to my to-read list now. 🙂
    Again great pick! 😀 ❤

    • Thank you so much Beth! Yes the first book to Shadow Falls is Born At Midnight and I am happy you really enjoyed it.
      I don’t think I ever heard of the Mediator series by Meg Cabot *hides face* lol but C.C. Hunter definitely knows how to write ghost whisperers and good ghost stories. If you get to this one once it is out, I hope you enjoy it as well ❤

      • That’s all right, ah in that case I’m glad I got the name right. I read the series so long ago I wasn’t one hundred percent sure. Oh I loved the Mediator books, it was an all-time favourite of mine when I was in high school, but I’m hopeful for this book now I know it’s being released. 🙂 Thanks Gretchen! ❤️
