Ghosts have fun too. Follow the story of Jordan Snow, newly dead, and discovering a familiar yet different world of the Living Dead people (LDs) in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. As he wanders the sandy roads, Jordan has a chance meeting with a surfer/skateboarding angel, named Luke, whose favorite word is ‘Dude.’ Luke happily takes Jordan as his protégé and proceeds to teach him how to be a ghost. 

Soon, Luke introduces Jordan to a trio of ghosts from the 1800s who haunt The Black Pelican and a handful of shadow people. One of those ghosts is the infamous T.L. Daniels who was murdered in the Pelican, under mysterious circumstances. The other two are Maggie and Elise whose husbands went to sea, never to return. They still wait for their husbands to return. Before long, Maggie and Elise teach Jordan how to place Go Fish and trick him into giving them pedicures. And once Jordan’s new friends discover that Jordan yearns for a last kiss goodbye with the young wife he left behind, they decide to fulfill that wish.

My Rating:  4 stars

A LOVE HAUNTING is an interesting story full of quirky characters, a view of the recently, and not so recently, departed — and the harsh realities of drunk driving and the heartache those actions leave behind for everyone to have to deal with in one form or another.

I think this is a story best left to each reader’s interpretation.  There are funny moments, yes, and there are heart-wrenching ones as well.  If anything involving drunk driving is a trigger for you – then please be aware that you will be facing that in this book.

I was completely involved in Jordan’s story.  It’s an unusual look at the afterlife, no matter your personal beliefs.  But, again, I leave that interpretation up to each reader.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story.  It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
