Only The Good Die Young (Jensen Murphy, Ghost for Hire #1) by Chris Marie Green


You know the theory that ghosts are energy trapped when someone dies violently? It’s true. I know it for a fact...

My name is Jensen Murphy, and thirty years ago I was just an ordinary California girl. I had friends, family, a guy who might be The One. Ordinary—until I became a statistic, one of the unsolved murders of the year. Afterwards, I didn’t go anywhere in pursuit of any bright light—I stayed under the oak tree where my body was found, and relived my death, over and over. So when a psychic named Amanda Lee Minter pulled me out of that loop into the real world, I was very grateful.

So I’m now a ghost-at-large—rescued by Amanda (I found out) to be a supernatural snoop. I’m helping her uncover a killer (not mine—she promises me we’ll get to that) which should be easy for a spirit. Except that I’ve found out that even ghosts have enemies, human—and otherwise…

My review:

When I read the blurb for this book I thought it was going to be a light hearted YA type read.  However, having read the Anna Strong/Vampire Babylon novels by this author I know that nothing is ever predictable.  And so it isn’t with this book.  This isn’t your average ghost story.  Take nothing for granted.  This is the start of a rockin’ good paranormal mystery series and I cannot wait to see what new spin will await us in Jensen Murphy’s next adventure.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review
