Minnette Meador's "A Ghost of a Chance" 5 STARS

A Ghost of a Chance [Ghost Trilogy, Book One]


Keenan Swanson is your typical, everyday graphic designer. Well, except for the hundreds of pesky, prank-loving poltergeists that make his life interesting (in a Chinese curse sort of way). He finds his situation precarious yet manageable—until witty, smoking-hot coworker Isabella enters the scene, and Keenan decides he wants her all for himself. With a horny succubus who has other ideas, a burly city cop determined to lock Keenan away, and an evil entity who’s hell-bent on using Keenan’s seed to create a living demon, the reluctant psychic realizes he just might not come out of this alive—or with his heart intact.

***************************

I've just finished reading this wonderful book.  It was humorous, intriguing and very interesting.  Humorous because of some of the characters, I got a real kick out of some of the ghosts.  Intriguing because there was no way to guess what would happen next. And, Interesting because there were many parts that I had never seen or heard of in any of the thousand or so books I have read in my life so far.

My favorite part of  the book is how Minnette captures people's personality traits so well with barely any words.. She describes a room full of ghost so well that I was able to picture it in my mind just like a movie.  She's a wonderful writer.  I thought I would like this book but instead I loved it.


It left me satisfied, with no questions unanswered.  But, I was left thinking about it for days.  I began to wonder if certain things could be possible and it gave me many "What if" questions.


  A book that sticks in your mind for that long even after starting a new book has many, many merits.  I totally recommend this book, it has my seal of approval! But don't just take me at my word, Read it!
