More About the Author
Terri lives in the same area of the United States as her Mary O'Reilly character, Northwest Illinois. She lives on five acres of rolling land in a 100 year-old farmhouse, with her husband, children, dogs, cats and several dozen chickens (well, the chickens live in the barn.)
Her background is in marketing and public relations, but she has always enjoyed telling stories. For a while, she worked as a freelance journalist for the local paper and wrote the Halloween feature for many years, collecting as many local ghost stories as she could. She gave her collection of local ghost stories to the local historical society to use as a fundraiser, they are now in their third printing.

The book dealt with paranormal activity in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The heroine, Eloise, would help the spirits of the deceased move on. The book drew me in from the first chapter when Eloise helped the little boy Andy move forward. I read this first chapter twice. Each time, the love between Andy and his mom moved me to tears. Ms. Reid is a master at letting the tension build as Eloise is introduced to the depraved character Delphine Lalaurie and barely survives the introduction and their subsequent encounters. There is quite a twist as the book proceeds that I did not foresee.
I enjoyed Eloise as a strong female lead character. The romantic tension between Eloise and Paul added to the book. Ms. Reid is a gifted storyteller, and it was fun reading how her tale unfolds. The loose strings tied together nicely in the end, and this book successfully combines the paranormal, mystery, suspense, horror, and romance.
I highly recommend this book, and I am looking forward to the next Terri Reid book!
The book seemed to begin at the wrong point in the story leaving me without much background. Yes, the agency that funds the heroine's work gets a quick mention, but not enough to give me a real sense of it. I did have an irreverent thought--hard to believe that our government would fund an agency to help spirits move on after national disasters.
The two main characters have unexplained issues from their previous time together, which the reader isn't clued into until much later in the story. Their unexplained problems together contribute to the feeling that these two characters were not great heroine and hero material.
The book has an interesting story, enough so that I did become immersed in it, though I never got invested in the characters except for Sally. That is the reason I gave it only 3 stars. I know from reading the first two Mary O'Rielly stories that Ms. Reid is capable of a great balancing act of great story and great characters. I look forward to more!
