"a brilliant paranormal series that can quench a lot of thirsts."
After her husband's sudden death, Robyn Peltier, moved to
Los Angeles and tried to put some space between herself and
her past. She is still grieving but being the PR consultant
for a famous Paris Hilton wannabe does keep her busy. That
is until her client is killed and Robyn tries to follow the
killer but as a result leaves the crime scene. This is only
her first mistake but it sets off a domino effect that has
her running all over the city trying to save her life.
Hope Adams is a reporter who specialises in the paranormal.
It is an easy job for her to do because she, her boyfriend
and alot of her friends are also supernaturals. Visiting LA
to see her friend Robyn, she finds herself caught up in the
mess that looked like an ordinary murder but turns into a
cabal problem. Doing everything she can, Hope tries to save
Robyn from finding out more than she should and from
getting herself killed.
Finn has always been able to see ghosts and they have
helped his career as a detective. Knowing more than he
should and speaking to himself doesn't earn him points with
his collegues but he gets the job done. When he ends up on
a big case he doesn't realise that he will learn alot more
about himself and his gift. He may also get to save some
people along the way.
Living with the Dead is the newest edition to the
Women of the Otherworld series, which just keeps getting
better and better. I was never really a fan of Hope but
this book had enough other important characters to keep me
happy. With Robyn, Finn and Karl playing equally big parts
in the story, Hope was not the center point and I started
to like her a little more.
With ghosts, clairvoyants, demons, werewolves and more this
is as always a brilliant paranormal series that can quench
a lot of thirsts. The plot was as spectacular as always and
had me gripped till the end. Now the wait is on for the
next book and anything else this fabulous author throws our
