I really loved this particular story because it involved kids and dogs. What is there not to love about a ghost child and a ghost dog! Loved it. This story is all about the kidnapping of children and selling them. Joey, the ghost child, also just happens to be the guardian angel of one of the children & reaches out to Mary for help. Between Joey, Bradley, and the help of Mary’s cop family in Chicago, Mary is able to stop the kidnapping and bring the villains to justice. There is one scene in the story where the ghost dog saves two lives & becomes a real hero. You will just have to read the book to find out what I am talking about. The kidnapping is not the only story in this book, there is also another story going on at the same time—a ghost prostitute that needs Mary’s help. This turns out to be a lot more than just a simple murder—there are other things going on concerning the dead prostitute than just her murder.
So if you like ghost stories and mysteries, with a few twists and turns thrown in, then you will enjoy this story just as much as I did—both times! There was no steamy sex scenes in the story and no profanity, which I really did appreciate. Now I am about to review Book 3 because I am reading them pretty fast—at least one a day.
I had to break my thoughts down into good and bad points.
** Spoilers ahead **
Of the good...
I like how some mysteries are solved within each story, but then more are added to keep you guessing until you can read the next one
The repertoire between Mary and Bradley is still awesome
Bradley and Sean could become good friends and it's nice that Mary's family accepted Bradley with open arms
Loved the dog. Loved.The.Dog... but there was issues with Chief, too. See below
Of the bad....
Too short! Felt like the story started and ended and that was it... cliffhanger notwithstanding
Why can Bradley sense stuff when he's not touching Mary now? And why is he now a ghost-blocker for her?
How can an incorporeal ghost dog save people from drowning?
Secondary characters needed more fleshing out. Why did Kevin go whacko? Was he working with someone else with the drugs ring? It feels as though that plotline was left hanging. I kept wondering if I read the reasoning and then forgot about it or missed something entirely. Or was it just not there at all? I don't remember and that's gotta be bad.
What about the kidnapping ring? We never found out if the entire thing was brought down. We assumed Kevin called and warned the couple about the trap, but then we found out that Kevin was involved in drugs and not selling babies. So what happened with that entire storyline? Was Kevin involved in the kidnapping, too? Was he just a bad-guy-of-all-trades?
The overall heart of the story was good. Family reunited in time for Christmas with addition to the dog. Mary and Bradley find love and admit it! And the tease tells us that we're going to find out what happened to Bradley's wife and daughter. My guess is the daughter is alive somewhere. We can't lose his entire backstory in book three, especially since now we know that there's a least six books in the series.
My overall rating is a three for this one. I gave the first book a four and in my opinion, that one was better thought out and there weren't as many loose ends. Pun not intended... at least I don't think it was intended.
Six year old Joey died in a car accident. Then, when his three month old brother gets kidnapped by human traffickers he calls in Mary O'Reilly, insisting he is now his brother's guardian angel and wants to help getting him back to his brother.
A story by this author is something to read and cherish...time after time every single one of them. There is a warmth there even with something dire as the threat to a baby in this story, contrasted with gentle humour in unexpected moments along the way.
To reiterate a phrase from this book, life is about turning bad things into good things.
Terri Read is good at showing how to do so ... Even in fiction. Enjoy!
