Cecilia Gunner’s rock star father, Lars, died 23 years ago. Suddenly, he appears to her in the family home when she finds his old journal under a floorboard. He’s hazy about the details of his death, and he thinks it wasn’t an accident.
Cecilia tries to find out what happened by visiting an address in his journal, where he had an appointment shortly before his death. It turns out to a medium’s house, but the medium now lives in a facility for Alzheimer’s patients. The medium’s son, Kaleb, who can also see the dead, takes Cecilia to see his mother, who gives her a warning to stay away from water.
Together, Kaleb and Cecilia investigate Lars’ death, talking to the police officer who was present when Lars’ car was pulled out of the bay. Though the death was ruled an accident, suicide was suspected. Lars had disappeared from a Christmas party where he was drunk and told his wife he wanted a divorce.
The story is well-written and had me guessing all the way to the end. Definitely a good read.
One distraction from the writing was multiple typographical errors. Not misspelling, per se, but wrong words, often homonym issues, that wouldn’t be caught by spellcheck. I wish the book had been proofread before release. I would have given it four stars, but because of the sloppiness, it only deserves three.
I'm not even sure where to begin with this book. This is the second of this author's books that I've read and I have to say that I was just as blown away this time as the last. She has a way of weaving such a fabulous tale with well-developed characters, humor, and realistic relationship in the middle of fanciful plots.
In this book, we have Cecelia, the daughter of a deceased rocker. She's managed to put distance between herself and that lifestyle, but her rock star mother still mourns the loss of her husband. While Cecelia attempts to help her mother through another episode, she comes across a journal that had belonged to her dad. And the fun begins.
Not only does the journal reveal glimpses of the man she can barely remember, but it also sets his spirit loose and Cecelia is finally able to see him. Her father wants to uncover the real reason for his death and he suspects it was murder. Yikes. This leads the pair to the doorstep of a psychic medium's son, who has a secret of his own. The three of them set out to solve the mystery of the famous rock star's death in hopes of putting his soul to rest.
The idea of the story intrigued me from the beginning. I know how well this author can do paranormal themes so I was sure it would be an easy read and it definitely was. It was so easy to read that I hung on every word and even read some pages twice. There were at least two scenes that made me cry--like crocodile tears and one or two others where I teared up. It was an emotional rollercoaster, that's for sure.
As for the romance, our couple was completely adorable together. We see the story from both of their points-of-view and I loved getting to know each of them. I was genuinely surprised to learn of Kaleb's paranormal ability and might have shouted "Whoa!" at my Kindle. The bedroom scenes were a little tame but nonetheless enjoyable.
Another solid five sun read for anyone who enjoys paranormal romances!
Full review on Up 'Til Dawn Book Blog
“End of the Road” by Karen Michelle Nutt is a paranormal mystery story that centers on Cecilia Gunner’s quest to solve the mystery surrounding her rock star father’s death…assisted by his ghost. Psychic Kaleb Houston becomes part of the investigation and may prove to be the most important discovery of all, both to Cecilia and her father.
This is a fun story that combines mystery and romance in a gradually unfolding tale that shifts between the past and present. I like the glimpses of the music world and the delightful repartee that result from arguing with a man who has never had the chance to be a true father and is still twenty-seven years old in a world that has had more than two decades of progress. This was a fascinating look at a dysfunctional family with the delightful twist of input from a previously stifled member who can only be heard by a couple of people. Some of the action was predictable and it would be nice to have a little more depth to some of the characters, but the combination of psychic phenomena and emotional scenes keep one rooting for Cecilia to find a way to help her dad and find her own closure and makes this an enjoyable tale.

I loved the often humorous back and forth banter between Cecilia and Lars. The dialog kept the tone of the story more light-hearted than expected. Through a series of short flashbacks, the author skillfully unveils the sad and tragic events of the past. Woven throughout the book these short glimpses of personal history slowly reveal the truth of that fateful, rainy night 23 years earlier when Lars met his end.
I enjoyed this book and believe that anyone who likes paranormal mystery with a bit of light romance will also delight in reading this story.
