More About the Author

Terri Reid has been telling ghosts stories since she was a toddler. Her mother tells of a time when two-year old Terri would sit in her highchair, look past her mother into the dark back porch and say, "Look. Man." When her mother would turn in horror, Terri would laugh delightedly.
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.

Immediately after I read Terri Reid's book, Loose Ends (A Mary O'Reilly Paranormal Mystery), I downloaded and read her book The Ghosts of New Orleans. It did not disappoint! I stayed up way too late reading both of her books, and it was hard to stop reading!

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!

First I have to start off by saying I absolutely Loved the first two books in the Mary O'Reilly Series! So naturally I darted off to purchase The Ghosts of New Orleans. It wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing either. All the elements were there for a fantastic book but it felt rushed to me. I didn't fall in love with the characters the way I did in the other two books. (Except for Sally) And it was very repetitive...and for that I shed one small tear. I'm not saying don't buy it and read it. By all means please do as it is a good story. It's just not on the same level as the Mary O'Reilly series.

After reading the first two books by Terri Reid and writing glowing reviews, I downloaded The Ghosts Of New Orleans with high expectations for a great read. This book had a whole different feeling from what I found in the Mary O'Rielly books.

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!

I loved her other books but must say, this one was disappointing. I had a difficult time finishing it. The main characters just got on my nerves with their rather cheesy love thing going on.

I could not go on reading this book after the Neanderthal military man used physical force to restrain a military woman so that he could arrange an inappropriate working arrangement giving her the ultimatum of work with him or do not work. However that was only the last straw, I prefer to read secular or nondenominational fantasy and am offended when a purely Christian perspective is used in which a "villager" whom she thought lacked faith is referred to as a devil or that a devil used his likeness to frighten her. All the Mary O'Rielly books were quite Christian however they did not seem to show hostility toward other systems and I enjoyed every one of the books in that series. This book may not end up being a chauvinistic conservative Christian bonanza, but after 5 chapters it was so distasteful that I cannot be bothered to read further; I'm looking for an urban fantasy or paranormal mystery not a sermon.

This great paranormal psychic can't defeat ghosts unless she is making out heavily with her ex-boyfriend. This book is such a disappointment because I really like Terri Reid's Mary O'Reilly novels. Don't bother with this one, but definitely read the others.

I enjoy books of this genre and I was not let down. I am now reading book one of her series. I hope that more about the PRCD will also be written. Very enjoyable.

The action was very slow and repetitive. Unlike her other books I have read I was not entertained and found it hard to reach the end of the book.
