Review: P.S. I Spook You by S.E. Harmon


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.

SSA Rain Christiansen used to be the agency’s golden boy. It just takes one moment of weakness, one slight, tiny, itty-bitty paranormal sighting, and all of a sudden he’s the agency’s embarrassment. His boss gives him one last chance to redeem himself—go down to Brickell Bay, play nice with the local police, and leave the ghost sightings behind. Rain is determined to do exactly that, even if it kills him.

Cold-case detective Daniel McKenna’s latest investigation is going nowhere fast. Five years earlier, high school student Amy Greene went missing after leaving her part-time job and was never seen again. Daniel is glad to finally have the FBI help that his department requested, even if it does come in the form of his ex.

It doesn’t help that Rain is pretty sure he’s falling in love with Danny all over again—if he ever stopped. Add to that the frustration of seeing ghosts at every turn while he works a case that’s stalled in its tracks, and Rain is starting to wonder if second chances and happy endings are just for fairy tales.
