Dead People by Edie Ramer

Dead People by Edie Ramer
* I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Dead People is about so much more than the title suggests.  It takes you on an emotional journey with the main characters as they start to care about each other.  As the romance blooms, there is also a mystery afoot and don’t forget attempted murder.   

The story is centered around Cassie, who is a ghost therapist and has been ridiculed of all her life.  Her father and his family will tell you she is crazy, if you ask them.  She has been alone for so long and used to taking care of herself, she didn’t realize how much she wanted a family until she met Luke and Erin.

Luke has had enough of the limelight and just wants his daughter Erin to have a normal life.  He and Erin have a rocky relationship at best.  She is upset because the judge took her away from her mother she blames him.  The only person she seems to warm up to is Cassie.

Cassie is hired to get rid of the ghost haunting the house Luke and Erin live in.  Isabel was the former mistress of the house and she wants everyone to leave her home.  She has scared Erin and Luke with her actions and they just want their house back.  The longer Isabel sticks around, the more she comes to care for them and when they are in danger she intervenes.

Cassie and Luke have great chemistry.  They are both attracted to each other but don’t want to act on that attraction for different reasons.  Cassie wants love and acceptance and Luke just wants no strings attached.  The sexual tension between them is so thick you could cut it with a knife.

Little by little Erin works her way into Cassie’s heart.  She sees so much of herself in Erin and can relate to the little girl.  She didn’t have her mother growing up and didn’t get any support from her stepmother. 

The cast of secondary characters in this book are colorful and entertaining.  You have Joe the Ghost that is Cassie’s companion.  He was a cop in his former life.  He watches out for Cassie and makes sure she is ok.  Cassie would rather spend her time talking to Joe than to a human male – go figure.  There is also Tricia, the current housekeeper who grew up in the house, her mother and Vanessa, Erin’s mother.  They all add something to the story.

I also loved the story about the house itself.  I’ve always been fascinated with old houses and their history.  The author does a good job of describing both the inside and outside of the house.  The references to Nancy Drew were great because I grew up reading stories such as The Hidden Staircase.

Overall I really enjoyed Dead People.  It kept me entertained from the beginning and I didn’t want to put it down.  I give it 4 Flaming Hearts.
