How to Survive an Undead Honeymoon by Hailey Edwards

Read April 2020
Recommended for fans of Sookie Stackhouse
 ★     ★    1/2

The series is wrapped up, but what, you are surely wondering, did Grier and Linus do on their honeymoon? Never fear, this novella answers the question and describes the sordid honeymoon events at a haunted bed and breakfast. Strangely, I felt like it was less ‘romancey’ than the prior series, so take that for what you will. It focuses instead on the investigation of the house. Are they ghosts? Poltergeists? What’s with the creepy owners? The lying kid? What’s Lethe hiding?

Something about it doesn’t quite gel. I don’t know if it’s my confusion/ambivalence at the solution to the mystery and situation, or at the sudden new turn personal events take at the end. It’s not bad by any means, but it just didn’t really live up to the promise of earlier books. Or maybe Quarantine Fever is finally wearing off.

Two and-a-half ghosts, rounding down to differentiate it from the 3 star reviews.
