Mary O'Reilly can see and speak with the dead after a beyond near death experience. Having to retire from police duty, she's now a private investigator specializing in paranormal cases and has dedicated her life to helping ghosts resolve their issues in this world to move on to the next. The book essentially starts with Mary in turmoil since she's promised Bradley's dead wife, Jeannine, that she won't tell Bradley she's seen and spoken with her and it's killing her to lie to him so she's been avoiding him. When a prominent woman of Freeport is found murdered at the theatre, Bradley asks Mary to help him with the case forcing them to spend time together. Mary decides to take matters into her own hand by hunting down Jeannine and insists they tell Bradley. Jeannine agrees and when they do, Bradley feels betrayed and breaks things off with Mary. It's a hard hit to take, but Mary continues to work on Jeannine's case, the new murder and the side story of a minister who recently died. He doesn't believe in ghosts and doesn't understand why he's still here instead of heaven and Mary has to help him find out why. With all of this going on as well as the Mary dealing with the breakup, you can imagine that some of the storylines are not fully developed.
Stanley and Rosie are still a staple to the series but underutilized this go around. There's wonderful development of Fireman Mike and Mary's relationship, but I wonder if we'll ever find out why he hasn't moved on. Bradley's struggles with his feelings for Mary, hamper any focus on the investigation to find how Jeannine was actually killed and I was so disappointed with the lack of development there, that I didn't enjoy the other mystery storylines as much. It's a great series, but each installment is so short that it barely has time to introduce a new aspect before the story is over. This ending introduces a yummy new character that wil prove very entertaining in the next book and I'm looking forward to reading it, but overall the last two books just leave you feeling wanting.
Final Call is an excellent continuation of the Mary O'Rilley series. The story flows nicely and is never confusing or leaving the reader wondering what's going on. The story gives us more of Bradley and Mary and even throws in a new character at the end that I see bringing a lot to the stories.
While we still have questions about Bradley and Jeannine this book brings more out into the open.
Reid is doing a fantastic job of telling her stories and creating characters for us to fall in love with. Once again I find myself eagerly waiting for the next book. If you are looking for a new series to read you can't go wrong with this one.
This is the fourth book in the series and it doesn't let you down. The characters continue to grow and develop. The attention to detail makes it seem like you're right there and the romance aspect of the book doesn't take away from the plot line of the story, yet adds to it.
Mary O'Reilly was a Chicago cop until she was badly injuried--dying and being brought back to life with a gift that changes her entire life. She now uses those gifts as a private detective. Strong, brave and tough; she knows how to take case of herself when things get rough. Mary stands up for what she feels is right and for the things she believes in, not backing down no matter what. As tough as she is, though, she is equally (if not more) kind, loving, and extremely compassionate about what she does. The more you get to know her character the more you want to read about them. (or at least that's the way it is for me.)
This book has a little bit of something for everyone all combined together to make a fantastic read. Even for those who aren't really into paranormal will find the mystery intriguing and very well-rounded.
Although it isn't necessary, I would suggest starting at the begging of the series so you'll be able to get a better feel for not only the story line but the characters, too. It's well worth the read.
