But let's not forget Maggie. Living next to a cemetery not only has its inspirational perks, but it is also full of mysteries to solve. And Maggie is one of them. When she starts invading Naomi’s dreams and her house, her life takes a turn she never would have expected. Maggie’s antics with Naomi’s cat, Zelda, are beyond entertaining. Add to the mix the ex-boyfriend, an overzealous police officer and numerous other interesting and essential characters and you have the makings of a fantastic mystery that begs to be solved.
Mya O’Malley’s characters are so full of life and light, and her stories so vivid, natural and perplexing, that you can’t help but be drawn in. Maggie was a riddle that kept me guessing to the very end, and the variables were constantly changing making it impossible to predict the outcome until it is revealed by the author. There were stories within the story, but each tale tied together with the next, weaving a perfect web of romance and the paranormal, a web only Ms O’Malley can create. It was the exact type of adventure I expect from the author, and has me looking forward to her next mysterious adventure.
What do you do when you break things off with a jealous possessive and verbally abusive ex? You let your best friend set you up on multiple really really bad blind dates. So that is what Naomi did after her split with her boyfriend Nick. Amy sure knew how to pick them and this date was no exception. She escaped and ended up at the bar where she sat next to Ryan, mister tall, dark and handsome. They hit it off over a glass of wine and ended up deciding to meet for dinner. She goes home and decided it's time to start her new book and goes outside to search for inspiration. Her 1700’s saltbox house was close to a small cemetery and that's where she meets Maggie.
The tombstone of a young lady who’s life was cut short too soon at the age of 26. She decides that she is going to give Maggie a voice and tell her story from her own point of view. It would appear Maggie has other ideas for Naomi. When Naomi first moved into her house she noticed shadows and objects moving on her own and it appears so does her cat Zelda. Though it seems that Zelda and the ghost in her home seem to get along. What choice do you have when a ghost decides that you will be the one to bring her death justice? You Listen of course.
I am in love with this book Mya has perfectly blended the supernatural and romance genre’s perfectly I am now on the hunt for more from this author.

I love paranormal books, when I say love I'm not kidding as about 95% of the books I read are paranormal, but have never been a fan of the books with ghosts in so I went into reading this book with trepidation. I don't know what I was so worried about as this book was awesome.
Naomi, who is the main character, was a sweet, but stubborn (in a good way) female lead. She was determined not to back down from her story or the investigation and I admired her for that as no matter how dangerous it got for her she was going to see it through to the end.
I don't want to mention any of the other characters as I feel that it could give away spoilers, but each and everyone that we were introduced to had a part to play in the story and they were all characters that were fleshed out & had substance to them. One of my pet hates are secondary characters who are flimsy and are just there in a story because the author needed to fill it out. I'm happy to say that Mya has not fallen foul to that in this book, or any of her other books which I've read so far.
This really was a beautiful story which I enjoyed reading. It kept me on my toes as just when I thought I knew what was going to happen next we're thrown one curveball after the other. I really had no idea how the book was going to end and it had me on the edge of my seat right to the very end. That made a change as normally I find I can guess where the book is heading, but there really was no chance of that with Maggie.
This is definitely a book that I'll be going back to re-read, and as someone who's not a fan of ghost stories, that's high praise from me indeed. Maggie gets the full five stars from me, so why don't you go & try it out yourselves and see what an amazing read this is.
Maggie by Mya O’Malley is a paranormal romance, with a mystery/suspense threaded through it. It is a touching, heart-warming, oh so gripping and hauntingly good, 5 Star read.
Naomi is a writer and has bought a beautiful old home that she fell in love with- in hope of beginning a new chapter in her life. She has quite unusual neighbours- in the form of the cemetery that back onto her property- and all the souls contained within it. Now, living in such close proximity to a cemetery would normally be very unsettling for most people, but not Naomi. In fact she finds it oddly comforting and romantic.
She isn’t even spooked when strange things start happening in her home, she knows she has a ‘visitor’ and this sparks and fans the flames of the writer inside her. When she is led to a grave in the cemetery belonging to Maggie T Field, Naomi knows she has been shown this grave for a specific reason- she just has to figure out why. Naomi wonders why Maggie died so young and decides to investigate the circumstances of her death- with the idea of basing her next novel on Maggie and whatever she discovers.
When a blind date turns out to be a boring let down, Naomi finds herself at the bar for a fortifying drink- where she meets a sexy, charming, almost ‘too good to be true’ man- named Ryan. They quickly hit it off and end up spending a lot of time together. When Ryan discovers where Naomi lives, he immediately falls in love with her house and the fact that the cemetery is basically in her backyard. He agrees to help Naomi investigate Maggie’s death.
Naomi has always thought that Ryan was a little mysterious and at times seemed a little distant. Although they got along incredibly well and she adored him, there was no ‘spark’- they seemed to be cementing a close friendship, not a passionate relationship. To add to Naomi’s confusion and dilemma- new neighbours move into the house next door, a single dad Bryce, and his cute daughter Holly. Bryce makes her go weak in the knees and there is definitely sparks between them. And so begins a love triangle, of sorts.
But things are not as they seem and as her investigation into Maggie's death progresses- danger presents itself. Naomi doesn’t know who she can trust. There are situations and secrets that are yet to surface. Can Naomi put all the pieces of the puzzle together and figure out the mystery? What is it that Maggie is trying to tell her, because she’s not only frequenting Naomi’s days, she has begun haunting her dreams as well? Will Naomi be able to save Maggie’s soul and free her from an eternity of anger and torment? What connection does Naomi have to the mystery? Will Naomi be able to cut away any confusion and realise which man is perfect for her, her soulmate, her future?
This is quite an original and unique concept and storyline. I thought the author did a wonderful job of weaving her story and all the various puzzle pieces together in a way that flowed so smoothly, and yet had so much intrigue and suspense built into it. I was holding my breath page after page, reading avidly and trying to figure out the mystery. I had so many scenarios going on in my head and not one of them was even close what it ended up being. Ms. O’Malley built a lot of twists into the story and when the whole mystery is revealed, I was blown away! I loved the revelation and I adored the ending. I felt like Naomi got her closure, and so did I.
“Maggie Had opened up Naomi’s eyes, made her see how important her connection with love was, and how much of a journey it could be to find the one person in this big world that you were meant to stand beside.”
This is my introduction to this author and I will happily continue to follow her work.
A fantastic story.
Thank you, Ms. O’Malley!
The story is going nowhere. The character doesn't know what she wants. Men in this book seem to run their hand through their hair so often (every other page) I wondered if they had greasy hair by the end of the day. In the story, it seems very easy to convince strangers that ghosts are real, you juste have to say "you have to believe me".
