"A fabulous paranormal anthology"

Good anthologies are sometimes hard to come by so when I find one I'm elated. I'll be the first to admit that I enjoy anthologies because I get a variety of stories in one book. This anthology really assuaged my love of the paranormal with these stories.

Haunted Hearts by Kim Cox was the first story about two ghosts who were murdered and they want to know why so they can finally not only be together but they can rest in peace. The added bonus is they might just get their grandson and niece together as well.

Mistletoe Medium by Elizabeth Delisi is a sequel of sorts to her first book FATAL FORTUNE. Lottie Baldwin, a fortune teller decides it's time to move on after she finds out her long time love walks on the wrong side of the law. She meets deputy sheriff Harlan Erikson who may be just what she needs to get her life back together. Can he accept that she is a psychic?

Valentine's Inn by Chris Grover tells us the story of Rianna Gordan who has inherited an inn from her uncle. While she's trying to decide whether to sell or keep the cozy country inn, she meets Josh Byford and his cat who try to convince her to keep the inn only Josh and his cat have a habit of disappearing when other people are around. Can Rianna find an investment partner and figure out the mystery of Josh?

Curse of Osiris by Elaine Hopper is the next story which is about Alexis Hart who unbeknownst to her bears the mark of Osiris. Zane Ryan has come to rescue her but will he be too late to save her from The Evil One?

GHOST OF AULD LANG SYNE is by Maureen McMahon. This story is a sequel to her gothic romance RETURN OF THE GULLS. Stacey Christian and Peter Mansfield were college sweethearts but have drifted apart until they meet again at the home of Stacey's best friend Holly. There they have to solve the mystery of Clementine Kreen's disappearance decades before. Can they do it?

FATE'S LITTLE TRICK by Sheryl Hames Torres is the story of Gemma McKinsey Fuller who was in a horrible car accident that killed her husband and child and left her deaf and able to communicate telepathically with people who are hurting. This is the case with Emily and her father Jared who are running from Jared's in-laws whom he's convinced is trying to gain custody of his precious daughter, Emily. Can Gemma help them and can they heal Gemma?

This is a guaranteed good read. Every story was a joy to read. I just wish this fabulous anthology had been much longer simply for the fact that I didn't want it to end.
