Not Quite Dead by Lyla Payne

Finding her fiance on top of his teaching assistant on his desk destroys Graciela's life.  She runs home to Gramps, who needs someone to help him in his declining health.  She knows you're not supposed to run away from problems, but she wants to make a fresh start.

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It is available wherever you can buy ebooks, so look for a copy now.

She has Gramps who is fading out a bit more each day, Will (her old love who married her best friend), the new Mayor in town who wants to ask her out, and a ghost.  She doesn't know who she is, but she keeps appearing to her and scaring her to death.  When she finds out who she is, it gets even more strange.  Why would Anne Bonny (the pirate) be trying to talk to her?

Graciela is a character that draws you in and makes you like her.  Sometimes you'd like to shake her good after she makes a silly decision, but none of us are perfect.  Graciela has to learn to forgive and forget, has to right a wrong, and needs to go on with her life.  She begins that process in this story.

I enjoyed the otherworldly touch, the voodoo influence, and the new romance developing.  The story was exciting and fun to read, and there will be another one coming.  I'm looking forward to reading the next in this series.  Why don't you give it a try?

Lyla will be awarding a $20 Bookstore GC (winner's choice) to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour, a Signed paperback of NOT QUITE DEAD + swag (US only) to another randomly drawn commenter and a final prize of an eBook set of THE ROSE GARDNER MYSTERIES by Denise Grover Swank to one more randomly drawn commenter during the tour.

Interesting to read that there will be a second book after this one. Any hints as to what may be in the second one?
