S.E. Harmon was an author who’s been on my to read list for a long time. I have her previous two published books, but haven’t had a chance to read them yet (that big pile of to be read books). So naturally I start with the new series, because I’m a sucker for stories with ghosts and mediums in them, especially unconventional ones. Rain is definitely unconventional.
What I got with P.S. I Spook You is a lovely, sexy, exciting mystery with a maybe not so much original plot as a well worked out story with awesome characters who are believable and human.
Rain comes from a hippy family. One he was happy to escape, but then you can never completely leave home behind as Rain finds out. When his career is hanging by a thread, he decides to go home to help with a cold case. Home to his wacky family. Home to the lover he never quite left behind. Home to the secrets he can’t escape. From there it starts rolling.
I loved the subtlety of this story. Yes it’s a story with ghosts and a medium, but it feels more like a mystery and the ghosts are a normal appearance. It story is carried by the characters, mostly Rain whom you just can’t help but love.
The writing was very well done. The story is written in such a way that it flows of the pages and manages to draw you into the story right along with Rain and Daniel.
I certainly hope we’ll get more stories in the future!
Should you read this story? YES! Especially if you like mysteries with a side of ghost.
