Waking Up Dead – Margo Bond Collins ***

Leave a comment

Paranormal Southern mystery; highly recommended for fans of Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood books.

Callie Taylor wakes up as a ghost in Alabama – a place she’s never been. She’s not sure why she’s there – but she finds herself compelled to bring the murderer of another young woman to justice. In order to do so, she goes about trying to recruit local ‘sensitives’ to her cause.

It’s a short novel, simply told, but it moves along at a good clip. A good couple of hours of entertainment. Definitely intended as the start of a series.
