"Books Fall Open, You Fall In"
I rated this book 1 out of 5 stars.
Grace Abrahams is the main character in this book. After the car accident that claims her parents, she is able to see ghosts. She meets them while looking at storage lockers at auctions with her brother, Frankie. Grace is visited by an older woman, a ghost by the name of Connie Flamingo, who is not sure how she was murdered but knows it was by someone close to her. Grace investigates to find out who wanted the lady dead and while doing so, it has an unfortunate side effect on Grace.
I tried. I really did, but unfortunately I will have to add this to my “abandoned” pile. Not something I do very often. I got this book for free through Kindle and thought it sounded like something I would like. The reviews were all positive and people seemed to really enjoy it. I wish I could say the same. I am a big fan of cozy mysteries, but I got about halfway through this one and realized I just couldn’t read anymore. The characters were all one dimensional and kind of annoying. Pearl, the resident ghost who hangs out at Grace’s shop, is the only somewhat loveable character in the book, and even she would get on my nerves from time to time. The dialogue throughout the book is amateurish and awkward and the mystery itself is boring. I honestly just couldn’t get into this book and finally decided that I didn’t care who the murderer was, so I put it down.
