And th Welcome to another round of "I'm So Torn! Firstly - the whole plot with her father's dark secret surrounding her birth didn't feel needed. I see why Jack had it as part of the story--it helped to bridge connections with another character's motivations--yet how disturbing to hear such even if it was a completely normal and unfortunately frequent emotional response.
Secondly - Rick goes from mysterious sex on a stick graveyad caretaker who seems a little bit too interested in Grateful though not in a creepy stalker way to Soon as the cat is out of the bag he is suddenly like 'And to solve all our problems marry me! Thirdly - Logan goes from being a 'aw poor puppy! Granted Grateful sees what is going on and understands that she can't just By the time his ah lingering spirit problem is figured out I was ready to smack him, bury him and hand Grateful over to her scheming, manipulative ex its bad when the guy who stole your money is the less evil of the men you know.
I also felt like Logan's resolution should have been given a bit more time--a lot happens at the end and the mystery of him is kind shoehorned in between figuring out the bad guy's motivations and saving all of humanity. Oct 22, Marsha rated it it was ok. Unfortunately, I do not that same tolerance in adult books. So, the idea of a leading female character who goes from one bad relationship after another never learning a lesson is a bit more than I can bare.
Additionally, it seems the only decisions she is able to make originate from her vajayjay. Needless to say, "The Ghost in the Graveyard" is not the book for me. Grateful Knight's mother died d 2. Grateful Knight's mother died during childbirth. After getting financially ripped off by her cad of an ex-boyfriend she has no choice but to move into a house free of rent provided by her real estate agent father.
Although the house is great, it has one major drawback, the property abutts the local graveyard. Oh, did I mention that the house has its own ghosts? The caretaker for the cemetery is a fine hunk of lust named Rick. He is able to have Grateful screaming with an orgasm on day two. Then, there is one of two ghosts living in her home she names,Logan. He has her going wet and wild too within a day or so from her escapades with Rick. Soon, Grateful discovers she is a reincarnated version of the witch of the dead, Hecate. Her last reincarnation was that of her mother.
Yeah that's right, she gave birth to herself. Are you getting the picture? While this book had potential, it ended up being one hot mess! I can't truly say that I even liked the insecure Grateful. I was actually more impressed with her best friend, Michelle. This book just did not do it for me. I'm sorry Ms. Jack, different strokes for different folks. Nov 14, kenzie rated it it was ok Shelves: romance-paranormal , sci-fi-fantasy. As witch-powered supernatural being huntress stories go, this one was just okay.
The premise is fairly tired and I found myself rolling my eyes at several points. What 22 year old woman is going to find out someone is keeping an important secret from her and just let it go for a while? That's right. But this one does.

There are a myriad of other plot and character problems that pulled me out of the story at several points along the way, but honestly the whole thing felt very tired, derivative and overdone. A few simple tweaks would have gone a long way to saving the whole thing. How come nobody comes up with a better way to come into power? There was nothing that made me want to read the sequels - wait, take that back.
I thought the addition of the familiar in the sequel preview chapter at the very end was done well and I approved of the choice of animal. But that's not enough to make me want to read the whole thing. There's a glimmer of a fine author in there, and with a bit more experience, imagination and coming into her own voice I think Jack could turn out a good read. Maybe she just needs to have hot sex with a veritable stranger to come into her power as a writer. Mar 14, Kelly rated it really liked it Shelves: ebooks , free-ebooks , read-in , urban-fantasy.

All Grateful wanted when she secured a rent-free house on the edge of a cemetery was a place to regroup financially before moving back to the city. She surely wasn't thinking about love or even a quick romp in the sack. But between the sexy cemetary caretaker and a drop-dead gorgeous ghost inhabiting her house, Grateful can't choose.
Each one harbors a dark secret or three which complicates things for her. Which one will she choose? I loved this and the writing reminded me of Kelly Armstrong. Sn All Grateful wanted when she secured a rent-free house on the edge of a cemetery was a place to regroup financially before moving back to the city.
Snark and sexiness are everywhere which made me love it. What I didn't love was the ending but cliffhangers are a pet peeve of mine. My Rating: 4 stars Oct 28, Amanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: paranormal-urban-fantasy , own-as-an-ebook. I was originally suckered into this book by the gorgeous cover. I was surprised to see that it was in fact a debut book in a new series.
I read the blurb and was immediately intrigued! Ghosts, witches, vampires and a sexy graveyard caretaker! I was SOLD! I immediately downloaded th I was originally suckered into this book by the gorgeous cover. I immediately downloaded the book from Smashwords to start this intriguing new tale. I am so glad I decided to give this book a whirl! Her real estate father is letting her stay at a house that he is having trouble selling rent free while she is trying to get back on her feet.
Her backyard consists of a graveyard, how spooky is that?! At first she has no desire to stay at the house and then she finds out her house is haunted. But she soon realizes that her ghost is actually really hot and helpful! But even more spooky things start to happen around her. Rick her super hot neighbor and the graveyard caretaker starts doing creepy things and all these weird creatures appear in the graveyard. At the young age of 22, she definitely could have handled things a lot differently. He can never say she lied to him; she was honest to a fault.
She also takes her duty seriously, once she realizes how important it is, she does not shirk her duty and comes around especially when it comes down to life or death circumstances. In this book we have a love triangle! So we have Rick the sexy, exotic, graveyard caretaker that just looking at his makes Grateful want to combust from the heat. He is direct and knows what he wants and that is Grateful! Then we have Logan.
How practical is that? Also, she feels bad that his soul is trapped here in her house, she wants him to move on, as is the natural order of things. That is not the kind of existence she wants for him. I kind of felt that Logan was kind of a bit creepy, he definitely has the insta-love thing going on with him. The plot is fun, entertaining and different. There is a light humor woven into the story and I love anytime an author can make me laugh.
I was at first scared that like the cover this book would be like the Charley Davidson series especially when it came to helping the departed move on, but it really ended up taking a different direction. There are magic, vampires, legends, fights to the death and even a possession or two within this story. There is never a dull moment in this book, it was quite entertaining. This is a great debut novel in a new series and I am going to be looking out for the next installments!
It wasn't even seven o'clock in the morning by the time I reached St. John's Hospital, but my body told me I'd packed a week of living into the first hours of the day. My shoulders sagged, and there was an ache deep inside my chest. I didn't have a name for all my emotions. In nursing school, they teach you to help people in crisis - illness, death, disfigurement, that sort of thing.
No book ever covered what to do when you found out you are the reincarnated soul of a witch, your neighbor is a b It wasn't even seven o'clock in the morning by the time I reached St. No book ever covered what to do when you found out you are the reincarnated soul of a witch, your neighbor is a blood-drinking immortal, and you have ghosts in your attic.
I was in new territory here. I stepped out of the break room with my stethoscope slung around my neck, knowing that no amount of medicine could cheat death. I've always known this. I've seen dozens of people die during my career. Only, today, a revelation; death was not the end.
Death meant change. Death meant forgetting. Death meant moving on. Welp, I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. I can't say I didn't enjoy it, it had it's moments. There were a few funny parts and some decent bantering. There was some interesting world building. There was even a few exciting things that happened, and a twist I'm surprised I didn't see coming. I really liked it when Grateful had a rare moment of clarity and decided to mix magic and medicine to achieve a goal, that could have been a very interesting and unique take… view spoiler [until Grateful inevitably fucked up.
Though I will say, that wasn't entirely her fault. She certainly didn't get any help or even any direction from the mostly useless peanut gallery. Rant-y spoilers likely below… So, mostly, Grateful view spoiler [stupid fucking name, I don't care the so called "reasoning" behind it hide spoiler ] was the source of all the eye rolling. Girl could not make up her mind to save her life, almost literally. She was just a ball of contradictions and not in any way was that a good thing. She's a year-old nurse view spoiler [Though 22 is pretty young, assuming she graduated high school at 18, went to college and directly declared her major, and graduated with a bachelor's in nursing, generally a four-year program, that puts her at 22 straight out of school.
It doesn't say how long she's been working, but it's slightly implied that she has some experience, enough to see "dozens of deaths during her career" which doesn't seem likely. But what the hell do I know? I got my bachelor's in radiology, not nursing. While young, nurses still have to be confident and decisive, caring.
She second-guessed every decisions she made when she finally got around to making a decision, that is. And when it came to Rick and Logan, some of her actions were thoughtless and borderline rude and self-indulgent. And that's not even including her reluctance to take up the mantle of Monk's Hill Witch.
When she found out what Rick was, she was quick to judge him a monster and she bounced back and forth between fooling around with him and wanting nothing to do with him so fast I got whiplash. I did kind of like that she stood her ground regarding Rick's persistence of wanting to get married. It's, at the very least, a nice change of pace from the usual insta-mate, together-forever routine. Though her reasoning for her decision seems sound, she barely knows him, she doesn't have the memories he does of their lives together, etc.
Something about Grateful herself makes those reasons seem less than genuine. I don't know, I think the fact that I don't like her all that much makes me question it. And Rick…I don't know what to think of him. But for a guy who has been around for at least years fighting off various supernatural creatures, and who is so in love with Grateful, he sure does let her stumble around blind.
He knows she has no memories of him or her previous lives, but he basically tries to pick right back up like she was just off on vacation for a week and not dead and reincarnated. As for Logan…I did like him, but god, he comes off as so needy it gets annoying. Though I'm curious to see what happens with him now that he's "back where he should be.
So unless this comes on over to KU, I'm likely stopping here. I paced the floral living room, trying to keep my voice from climbing to the octave of hysteria. I was pretty close. Any higher and dogs would come running. Keep the drapes closed and no one will ever know.
First of all, may I remind you, you are not the homeowner but a custodian, so to speak. And think of it this way - your neighbors are quiet, keep-to-themselves type of people. Can't you understand why this might freak me out a little. I'm here all alone. Come to think of it, he would probably give you a tour if you wanted. Maybe that would put you at ease. I was painfully close to looking the gift horse in the mouth. We were talking about dead people here. I wouldn't let a bunch of dead people ruin my chances at a new life. Dad was right. I could do this. I ended the call and raced to the little door behind the kitchen I assumed led to the basement.
To my pleasant surprise it led to a finished walkout; too bad if you walked out it would be straight toward the dead people. I tried to ignore the view and veered toward the wine cellar. I'll walk home. Don't waste time. Sit on my lap. He lowered himself behind the wheel, and I slid in after him.
I had to practically lie down across his body to fit. I slipped my arm down the side of his seat and fit my chin into the groove of his clavicle. I wrapped my other arm across his chest and snuggled in. The dark smell of him, the spice of nightfall, filled my nose. With my best friend possessed by a vamp in the seat next to me, you'd think I could control my libido, but I caught myself inhaling Rick and wishing I had more than his scent inside of me.
He sensed my attraction immediately. I heard his breath draw in, and he turned his face into my neck, nuzzling behind my ear. Yep, even in a new body, that move rocked my clock. I shivered in the circle of his arms. His black eyes sunk into me, and my core tightened decadently in response. Let's go. Rick's car was tucked in next to mine in the garage before you could say "foreplay. Or should I say, I got up off the hardest part of Rick's lap. Surprise, surprise.
Discover your next hot alpha hero in this unforgettable volume of suspenseful paranormal romances! You fall. The caretaker for the cemetery is a fine hunk of lust named Rick. Veronica Sloan. I'm sad that it is over.
I was looking forward to this ceremony. I'm sad that it is over. It didn't have a cliffhanger per se but the way it ended left me wanting more!
The closest comparison I have would be the Charley Davidson series, which is one of my favorites. Grateful wasn't as funny as Charley but there are some similarities there. I can honestly say that I couldn't guess what would happen next through almost the entire book. Except the part with the ghost Logan I figured that one out but thought I was wrong. Who can argue with a hunky ghost hanging around? The main characters in this book are Grateful and Rick.
There's also the aforementioned ghost Logan and another ghost Prudence. Then there's Grateful's best friend Michelle. Grateful has to move into this house because her ex took all of her money. The house ends up being haunted. Rick is Grateful's new neighbor who she has an instant connection with but is afraid to end up screwed over by yet another man. It doesn't help that the ghost Logan has a crush on her either.
Lots of fun! My favorite parts of the book were with Rick. I liked Grateful's connection to him and think that in addition to being super hot he's also very sweet. Michelle was hilarious, especially her concept of the "blonde paradox. The second book came out this September. It is called Kick the Candle. I am looking forward to reading this book and finding out what happens next. I'm hoping Grateful gets with Rick and they kick lots of ass together. I liked Genevieve Jack's writing style, it was a fun read and I look forward to reading more of her books.
Favorite Quotes: "Well that was a relief said no one after seeing a ghost, ever! You fall. It's an uncontrollable act of gravity that has nothing to do with choice and everything to do with fate. And sort of look like Barbie. Well, that attracts men because their caveman brain thinks I'm more fertile. But then they assume I'm stupid due to societal stereotypes about blondes and ironically become less intelligent in my presence. It's like my looks are toxic to a healthy relationship.
I really quite enjoyed this book. That's despite it being told in the first person present tense, which I generally hate and involving both a love triangle and insta-lust, which usually drive me crazy. The book somehow managed to overcome all of its handicaps and provide an enjoyable read. And it did it with surprising ease. The magic irritation-nullifying ingredient? The Ghost and the Graveyard is funny. Yes, yes it's hot and steamy too, but that wouldn't have been enough to overcome my I really quite enjoyed this book.
Yes, yes it's hot and steamy too, but that wouldn't have been enough to overcome my dislike for the parts that make up its whole. I needed Grateful's quick wit and sarcastic internal monologue for that. She's a great heroine. She manages to stay strong and sure of her own sense of self in the face of some fairly severe identity shake-ups. She might have gone weak at the knees in the face of Rick and his awesome sex appeal, but she was never weak-willed.
I respected that. Rick was a surprisingly complex hero. He was simultaneously strong and fragile, loyal and of a little untrustworthy. I'm sure in my own imaginings that there will be a lot more to him and his backstory in the future books. I liked Lucas too. He was like a lost puppy, but I was a little tired of his whinging by the end of the book. I was a bit disappointed that the book didn't quite wrap up by the end. Don't get me wrong it ended OK, but only one small part of the larger whole was solved.
There were a lot of loose threads about. I'm always left wanting when that is the case. It's a shame the next book isn't out yet. Intriguing storyline, humorous and let's not forget hot, sexy love scenes. What can I say except this book was awesome. It has mystery, suspense, hot romance and humor, all rolled into one book. The characters and storyline were amazing. Jack portrays them as real people. I felt as if I had stepped into the while partaking some of the action love scenes,definitely LOL!!!! I loved the fact that Grateful main character was just a regular girl until she found out about her situation: witch, s Intriguing storyline, humorous and let's not forget hot, sexy love scenes.
I loved the fact that Grateful main character was just a regular girl until she found out about her situation: witch, soul-sorter, and past license. She did amazingly well against all odds despite her lack of know how towards dealing with the supernatural. Her love life, however seems to be in limbo. Hopefully in future books to come, she will find that special someone that can help her dealings with the supernatural. I've recommended this book to several friends and family. I'll be reading this series until the end. Keep up the great writing, G.
