Welcome and I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I am so happy to be able to share my review of this fantastic story by Chrys Fey.
Are you a ghost lover? Well, this is one you won't want to miss.

I love the etheral cover for Ghost of Death by Chrys Fey. The ghostly effect made me eager to read this wonderful and sometimes humorous novella about a murdered woman, who is now a ghost, and the investigation into her death.
Jolie figured, if she had to be a ghost, she would be the best ghost she could be.
She could walk through walls, but not tweet. I thought that was very funny and the writing set the tone for the rest of the story.
Jolie doesn't know how she died, but she watched as the police examined her crime scene. She had been going to college to be a journalist and noted everything in detail. Imagine watching the police document the scene, taking your body to the coroner's office, watching the care and the feelings the workers put into their work.
Imagine watching as your family identify your remains, wanting to reach out to them in their time of need, feeling their anguish and wanting to alleviate their pain.
Jolie was watching the officer in charge of her case, Avrianna, pacing in her office. She shouted out in anger at her. Avrianna whipped around and shouted, "You know what? You need to stop shouting in my ear..." I busted out laughing. Didn't see that coming at all.
Avrianna is Jolie's Ghost Whisperer. I loved that Chrys mentioned the TV show, Ghost Whisperer, with Jennifer Love-Hewitt. I used to watch the show every week and have been watching some reruns on ION TV.
Jolie would find out first hand why earthbound spirits stay.
This novella had it all for me: mystery, ghosts, a great storyline and characters that I loved. The humor sprinkled throughout the story helped to make up for the times when I wanted to cry for those left behind.
I would highly recommend reading this fun story of Jolie and the detective that is determined to solve her case, if a murder mystery can be fun. :twisted:
The author supplied me with a copy of Ghost of Death in return for an honest review. I can hardly wait to begin reading Witch of Death.
Welcome to fundinmental, Chrys.
I am so happy to have you here to share some of your thoughts with us.I love chapter titles as a reader and a writer. I think chapter titles are a special dose of creativity that writers add to their books for readers to enjoy, whether readers look at those titles of not. For Ghost of Death, my seven-chapter short story, I created chapter titles for a bit of humor. My publisher doesn’t use chapter titles for shorter works though, so they were stripped from my story during the galley phases. I wanted to share those titles with you now.
Chapter One – I Can’t Be Dead
Chapter Two – Ghost of Death
Chapter Three – Tea for One
Chapter Four – The League of the Dead
Chapter Five – What Happened
Chapter Six – Evidence
Chapter Seven – Pesky College Ghost
QUESTION: What do you think of my deleted chapter titles?
Thank you for having my on your blog, Sherry. You rock!
You are most welcome, Chrys. It is definitely my pleasure and I look forward to doing it again!

Avrianna Heavenborn is determined to find the person responsible for a young woman’s death. She gets closer to the killer’s identity with every clue she uncovers, and Jolie is with her every step of the way.
But if they don’t solve her murder soon, Jolie will be an earth-bound spirit forever.
