Book Description

Ghosts. Do you Believe?
Sophie Rhodes doesn't have a choice. She's surrounded by them.
Desperate to pay the bills, 29-year-old Sophie ignores the advice of her stuffy spirit-friend, Marmaduke Dodsworth, and takes a job with the handsome Dr. Callahan, an optometrist with a desperate situation of his own. The good doctor's problem? He has a spirit-friend as well: one with a fiery crush and a vicious jealous streak. When chemistry starts to brew between Sophie and Dr. Callahan, his green-eyed ghost wreaks some bad-tempered havoc, scaring away his patients and putting Sophie on edge. Will Sophie give up the ghost and quit the new job, or buck up and find a way to rid Dr. Callahan of his pesky specter, freeing their romance to find a life of its own?

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep Me Posted April 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I totally loved this book and all the characters. I want to tell you all about it but I really think you should read it so you can laugh and savor the fun. I was very interested in the practice of the doctor. He has a real calling for today's youth. Please keep us posted on these characters and bring them back for a command performance!

I love all of Karen Cantwell's books and love it when she brings us new characters to follow.

I loved the characters in this book. Sophie and Cal just seem to go together. The fact that they have ghosts in their everyday lives just makes the story more intriguing. Well written with a nice flow of suspense and emotion. I kept turning the page to see what was next. Great job Karen Cantwell

I was a little hesitant about the latest Karen Cantwell novel because I do not like ghosts but the 'ghost theme' is done in such a cute & fun way that I can't help but want my own Marmaduke now!! Loved this book (as well as the entire Barbara Marr series) and looking forward to next one! Highly recommend if you are looking for a fun and spooky story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Star Beginning March 26, 2013
By mskiti
Format:Kindle Edition
Karen Cantwell has just introduced a new series with the publication of Keep Me Ghosted (Sophie Rhodes Ghostly Romance #1)Sophie Rhodes is a very likable protagonist who I immediately felt comfortable with and wanted to get to know better. Sophie's mind-talk of self recrimination is funny and endearing, especially since she seems genuinely surprised when situations turn out positively for her. Her best friend and constant ghost companion is Marmaduke Dodsworth. I grew quite fond of "Marmi" and his prim, proper, very British observations and his decided penchant for long-winded discussions with Sophie. Dr. H. U. Callahan practices Developmental Optometry & Vision Therapy, and becomes Sophie's new employer and love interest. He, too, has a resident ghost, Moonflower, trailing him, and her ghostly, violent outbursts of jealousy toward any female in the Doctor's life are quite riveting, and action packed. Ms. Cantwell also introduces a terrific idea of a support group for those with relationship problems with their ghost companion. I surely hope the group continues to flourish in this series. It is a delightful congregation of positive/negative interaction between live and ghost beings.

If you believe in ghosts, this is a must read book. If you don't believe in ghosts, it is still a must read book for just plain fun, and entertainment.

I received a free, early copy of this book from the author in return for my unbiased review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have loved the Barbra Marr Series by Karen Cantwell so I was very excited when she was putting out a new series. I LOVED the first book. I was so surprised how much I loved the first book because I'm not much into ghosts or things like that. The characters were well written and the I really enjoyed the plot. I can't wait for the next one to come out. Its a quick, cute, fun read.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's the SPIRIT! :) March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Word of warning: Before you begin reading Karen Cantwell's *Keep Me Ghosted,* set aside your to-do list so that you can keep reading with a clear conscience. This book is one you will want to carry around with you to grab every reading moment you can squeeze out of your day. Karen introduces us to new characters that we can dare to call new friends, too, based on the teaser at the end of the book. Normally I'm not into mysteries dealing with parapsychology, but Sue Ann Jaffarian's Granny Apples hooked me, and Karen's Marmaduke Dodsworth keeps me hooked. Marmie's corporeal sidekicks, Sophie and Cal, are equally charming, and ~ as always ~ Karen's masterful and humorous storytelling grabbed me immediately and didn't let me go until the final page. Heck, she had me at her titles ~ always punny delights! Spoiler alert: Amid my laughter, I also shed some tears as Cal realizes that his sister has been watching out for him in the same way I feel my mama watching out for me. I hope we'll see more of Sophie, Cal, and Marmie in the future! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A DELIGHTFUL PARANORMAL ROMANCE June 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I simple adored this book. The characters were a refreshing mixture. I really liked Sophie, Dr. Cal, Marmaduke the verbose British ghost and Edna & Stan. The comedy was uplifting but there were also some very touching moments, as well as, some spine tingling moments. I actually teared up a couple of times.

I admired the research Karen conducted which enabled her to throughly and accurately describe Dr. Callahan's speciality and what a difference it makes in people's lives. I had not hear of this speciality before and I'm interested in finding out more about it.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes cozy mysteries well blended with lite romance, humor and the paranormal. My advice buy it, read it; Enjoy!

I sure hope there is a sequel. I Can't wait to see what Sophie gets herself into next!

More About the Author


I'm so glad and honored that you have visited my author page.

I have been writing plays and short stories for many years, some of which are published in short story collections.

My first novel, TAKE THE MONKEYS AND RUN, is a comedy-mystery, inspired, to some degree by a true monkey sighting in my own neighborhood. Because I love to laugh as well as make other people laugh, I have great fun writing the characters Barbara Marr, her friends and her adversaries. When I set out to write this book, I knew I wanted to write something that readers would say, "Now that was FUN." I HOPE I have achieved that goal. And if I did, please feel free to drop me a line at and let me know! I love to hear from readers. (especially if they LIKE the book!)

Books in the Barbara Marr series are: TAKE THE MONKEYS AND RUN (#1), CITIZEN INSANE (#2), AND SILENCED BY THE YAMS (#3), and SATURDAY NIGHT CLEAVER (#4). The fifth book, DEAD MAN STALKING, will be released September of 2014. You can also enjoy a Barbara Marr short story collection, THE CHRONICLES OF MARR-NIA, as well two holiday short stories, IT'S A DUNDER-BULL WIFE and BJORN!ON THE FOURTH OF JULY. All are available on Amazon for Kindle.

Again, thank you for stopping by!
