By Joyce and Jim Lavene
• Genre – Cozy Mystery (PARANORMAL)
When Nashville cop Skye Mertz and her husband, Jacob, are killed in a wreck, Skye is given the opportunity to come back for twenty years to raise her five-year-old daughter, Kate. With her ghostly mother-in-law’s help, Skye hopes to be there until Kate is old enough to take care of herself.
But three years into her twenty-year service to Abraham Lincoln Jones, the man who gave her the extra time, Skye is beginning to think life might have been easier before she died.
Abe asks her to investigate the murder of his sorcerer, Harold the Great, a man who was a victim of too many snakes. And the Life Extended People (LEPs – a nice term for zombies) who work for Abe have begun turning into ghosts and disappearing. Only Lucas, the possibly evil, amnesiac sorcerer who lives with Skye and her family, can save her from being the next victim of the deadly curse.
To make matters more complicated, Skye has found a lead in solving the riddle of her husband’s death. She has never believed Jacob died as a result of the crash, but hasn’t been able to prove it. Many other people have lost their lives in the same lonely stretch of highway that he did three years before. Skye goes against Abe’s express wishes to discover the truth with a crazy man bent on vengeance.

My review:

Jim and Joyce Lavene's newest paranormal Dead Girl Blues will have you reading through the night. Magic, Zombies and a Story line so well written this whodunit will leave you wanting more.  Skye Mertz is hunting down Zombies as part of a deal she made to have lives added to her life ot in this case her life after death.Skye and her husband are dead after an accident and she is now a zombie too. She made a deal with Abe who is also dead, that she would help him with what he needed and right now he needs her to find out who killed his sorcerer. This book will keep you reading through the night, you won't want to put it down. The characters are fun and witty and well written that you feel like you are there with them. The story line will peek your interest from the start. I am eagerly waiting to see what Skye will get into next.

  4. I'm not normally a paranormal mystery reader, but this sounds very interesting. (I do read some with the occasional ghost now but I never would have thought I would enjoy the stories so much!)
