The main character, Brianna, drew me in with her lack of confidence about life in general, her desire to reconnect with her dead brother in his favorite city of Savannah, and with her hope to establish a normal life despite the fact that she is able to see and talk to ghosts. Brianna has a heart as big as the south where she has moved to. She works at a funeral home doing cosmetology on the deceased, she works hard to make them look nice and to reveal their personality. Her heart is in her unusual profession.
She quickly discovers a family of ghosts is living in her home. The three of them are grieving lost opportuniities to make amends with their estranged son, Steven. He returns to Savannah to find his family not knowing they died in a fire. He meets Brianna when he goes to his previous home and discovers her living there.
Every good novel requires an antagonist to hate. This one has a self-absorbed jackass in the form of a community leader.
Humor comes in the form of a feisty dog. The southern ghost family, especially the mother, who is continually referring to Brianna as a damn yankee who can't even cook grits. Romance comes in the form of Brianna and Steven learning more about each other, ghosts, and the former murders commited by the antagonist.
This is the first book I have read by this author. I'm sure I'll be reading more. Many more.
No Grits No Glory was an easy reading novel and it made me feel good with the "nice" ghosts in the story. The book is a mystery about a young woman who moved to Savannah to work in a funeral home doing cosmetics on the cadavers. She discovered a family of Ghosts living in her rental home. While finally becoming accustomed to the Ghost family she met Steve the son of the ghost family. Together they investigated what had killed so many people in the Historical District including Steve's family. Together they discovered who the killer was and solved the mystery.
This book is great reading and isn't cluttered with many of the unnecessary side bars. You will thoroughly enjoy reading NO GRITS NO GLORY! Elaine Calloway "hit" the nail on the head with this novel. I highly recommend it. You won't be able to put it down after you begin reading it.
Brianna was one of those that did not. At the funeral for her brother she made a promise over his casket that ended up gifting her (or cursing depending on your view) with the ability to hear and see the dead. She thought by moving to Savannah Georgia, a place her brother loved, that she would be leaving her gift behind. Well turns out the South has plenty of ghosts and just so happens the house she is renting is full of them.
Steven had a falling out with his father many years ago and left for LA to become a musician. One of his biggest regrets was leaving his little sister behind. No matter where he was he called her a couple time a year. When he is unable to reach her for a period of time he returns home to Savannah only to find Brianna now living in his childhood home and that both his parents and sister died in a fire. Do you see where this is going? Yes the ghost living in the house Brianna is renting are Steven's family. They were murdered and want Brianna to help them bring their murderer to justice.
Along with Steven and Brianna trying to get evidence on the man that killed Steven's family there is also a side story of her brother Declan's new job in the afterlife. He is assigned to helping those that have just died onto the next part of their journey. He also wants nothing more than to see his sister one more time but that is against the rules but hey what are rules for if not to be broken – even in the afterlife.
