“A Match Made in Hell” by Terri Garey

FROM THE BOOKCOVER:
A brush with death and a brief trip to the hereafter left vintage clothing store owner Nicki Styx an unwilling ghoulfriend to the dead. She can see and hear spirits, and boy, do they want to be heard! Luckily, her new boyfriend, sexy doc Joe Bascombe, is there to help, especially when Nicki faces her latest ghost, a woman in pink sequins who holds the key to some family secrets.

Unfortunately for Nicki, it turns out that there are more skeletons in the family closet than she thought, including a twin sister and a mysterious house full of spirits and surprises. Things go from bad to worse when the devil himself shows up, determined to lure Nicki from Joe's side. Will she give in to temptation and sell her soul (or someone else's) for one incredible night?

Demons may be a ghoul's best friend, but with this particular hottie, it could be a match made in hell!
This is the second installment of the reluctant Nicki Styx "ghoulfriend" after last years Dead Girls Are Easy. “I see dead people” is a phrase we have all become familiar with either through The Sixth Sense, Medium or Ghost Whisperer. A Match Made in Hell is surprisingly fresh and fun. Set in Little Five Points, Georgia, it has an amiable southern atmosphere. There are plenty of twists and turns making this an enjoyable page-turner. The introduction of Nicki’s twin sister and her secrets is a welcome addition and should add depth to future stories. The “devilish” subplot (pun intended) brings a nice dark twist beyond the usual ‘help the nice dead people’ theme and from the ending this will also be continued in the next volume. Recommended.

Volume 3 in the Nicki Styx series, You’re the One That I Haunt will be out next April.
