Publisher's Summary

Twenty-something Harper Connelly has a gift. After being struck by lighting as a child, she discovered an eerie ability to locate the deceased. In Memphis, skeptical Professor Nunley wants her to demonstrate her skill at an ancient cemetery. There, Harper stands atop a grave and says there are two bodies entombed: one centuries old, but the other, a young girl named Tabitha. Her assertion holds water. Tabitha has been missing for two years - and now the police are suspicious of Harper. So with her loyal stepbrother, Tolliver, Harper begins to amass clues that will solve the case.

Amazingly different

I loved the narrator, so I disagree with the previous reviewer - but then everyone looks for something different when hearing a story.

The premise of this story was so odd - but it held me from the beginning. I liked it so much, I went back and downloaded the first one in the series - Grave Sight - and loved that one, too.

The third book, An Ice Cold Grave, is supposed to be released on September 25th- I sure hope Audible gets it right away.

Waste not your credits, my dear......

Any additional comments?

Ok, here is the deal. I bought book 2 in this series and then realized I got the wrong one. So.. I bought book 1 and started there. After the first book I wasn't sure what to think. The topic was interesting, the characters had redeeming points but the execution was very flawed. I have a hard time with authors who can't keep their facts straight.

For crying out loud! Buy a pack of 3x5 cards and write a physical description of the character on the card. From then on out refer to the card when the character says "it matches my ____ eyes." And don't allow their hair to grow 4 inches in a mere 2 weeks.

This part really bugged me.

Next, if a character has such a depressing life, why do I want to live it with them? I read to enjoy, to conquer the world, to feel like the good guy always wins. After listening to book one I thought I would give two a chance. The author improves, a tiny bit, but just not enough to drag me through her depressing and muddy life for another 6-8 hours.

I won't waste another credit.

- Tina "I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel."
