Life used to be drab for Billie Culpepper, but all that changed after an accident left her in a coma for three days. That was when the spook show really began, when Billie realized that she could see the dead.
And the dead could see her.
Now they won't leave her alone.
Accompanying two friends through a haunted house, Billie uncovers a terrible secret that brings not only the police but the homicide detective responsible for putting her into the hospital in the first place. He's also the one man she swore to stay away from.
Author's note: The Spookshow is the first book in a new paranormal series about what lies on the other side of death. A young woman's latent psychic ability is awakened, allowing her to see the lost souls that surround us. This is part blessing but mostly a curse, and she struggles to deal with the awful truths the dead whisper to her. Complicating matters is the homicide detective who comes to her for help - a man she's drawn to but cannot be with. So far, the books are:
Welcome to the Spookshow
The Women in the Walls
Bringing Up the Bodies
The Spookshow is a fast-paced introduction into the world of ghosts, murder, mystery, the occult, and the heartbreaks of wayward 20-somethings trying to find their places in life.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable book. I have this book on Kindle as well as an Audible. The story was engaging, the characters were developed well.
I enjoyed Caitlin Gallogly's narration of Spookshow Book 1. Her voice was clear, animated, and pleasant to listen to. I did notice a couple of glitches...twice a sentence was repeated. I don't know if the original recording had been stopped and then repeated where it was left off. This did happen twice but seemed to be the only problem.
My only complaint about the story is that Books 1 and 2 seem to be reversed, that is--book 2 should be book 1 and vice versa. Story jumps to a "prequel." I have downloaded books 3 and 4 in this series but have not had the chance to start them yet. It is my hope that Book 3 will continue the story in Book 1. Other than that, I think it's a great story and am looking forward to continuing the series. I envision this as becoming a movie some day!
