From The Author’s Website:

Kylie McAllister has it all until her world is shattered by the death of her husband, Jackson. After a year of grieving, Kylie uses the proceeds from Jackson’s life insurance to purchase a plantation home on the outskirts of New Orleans to begin rebuilding her life with their daughter, Abby. Confirmed bachelor, Ryan LaCroix, has no intentions of settling down with anyone, let alone his best friend’s widow, but somehow Kylie and Abby find their way into his heart.

After discovering an old Ouija board in the attic of her new home, Kylie unwittingly opens a cosmic door to an incubus who pretends to be the dead husband she is so desperately struggling to let go of. She falls deep under his potent spell of delicious sex and malevolent obsession while he gradually drains her life to fortify his own. By the time she realizes he’s an impostor, she is powerless to stop him. Together, with Jackson’s subliminal guidance and the help of a kind voodoo practitioner, Ryan and Kylie wage a fight for her life against the evil entity.

My Review:

Holy cow! That is all I can say about this book!

Kylie has the perfect marriage with a perfect husband and a brand new baby. In the blink of an eye, that perfect marriage was destroyed when Jackson is killed.

I cried, got horny, and laughed while reading this book. I’m not much of a crier but the waterworks were running with this one. Melissa did a beautiful job showing the sweet love that Jackson and Kylie had and the difficulties of a new relationship for a widow. You would believe that Melissa had lived through a similar tragedy herself. I was unable to put down this book and I was emotionally exhausted by the end of it.

With each book she publishes, Melissa’s writing has matured and she truly has found her voice as a writer. I’m looking forward to more great work from her.

I give Giving Up The Ghost a 5 Horseshoe rating.
