Dead Girls are Easy by Terri Garey is fast-paced, sometimes dark, but always attention-grabbing. It is Ghost Whisperer with an attitude.
Romance plays a side role in this paranormal suspense novel. In fact, my only complaint with this story is that the love story line has the likeness of a soap opera to it. In other words, one coincidence too many for my tastes.
