Description


Never acknowledge the dead.
Never stray far from hallowed ground.
Never get close to the haunted.
Never,
ever tempt fate.

My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father...until now.

Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

The author smoothly establishes characters and forms the foundation of future story lines with an edgy and beautiful writing style. Her story is full of twists and turns, with delicious and surprising conclusions. Readers will want to force themselves to slow down and enjoy the book instead of speeding through to the end, and they'll anxiously await the next installment of this deceptively gritty series."

        October 24, 2011
        Stevens kicks off her Graveyard Queen paranormal romance series with this disappointing entry. Cemetery restorer Amelia Gray has seen ghosts since she was a child faithfully following her father's strict rules to ignore them and avoid those who are haunted. However, when a girl is brutally murdered and her body dumped in a cemetery that she's restoring, Amelia breaks her rules and becomes involved with sexy police detective John Devlin, a man haunted by the ghosts of his dead wife and child. As Amelia digs deeper into the girl's murder, she grows closer to Devlin, unearths a number of secrets, and makes herself the killer's next target. Stevens serves up a sultry tale full of lush descriptions of Charleston, S.C. and the surrounding countryside, as well as interesting tidbits about cemeteries and gravestones. Unfortunately, the weak, rather abrupt resolution to the mystery and lack of answers about ghosts–including Amelia's ability to see them–ultimately bury this creepy, atmospheric tale.
