**The Ghost and The Graveyard is a funny, exciting, and sexy read intended for adults. Due to sexual content, language, and violence this book is recommended for ages 18+**

Grateful Knight isn't looking for love when she moves into a rent-free house on the edge of a graveyard. At twenty-two, all she wants is to recover financially so she can move back to the city where she belongs.

But sparks fly when the gorgeous cemetery caretaker, Rick, introduces himself and mentions his suspicion that her new house might be haunted. Her attraction to him seems supernatural, and despite her resolve to not get involved, she literally can't keep her hands off him.

When things in Grateful's house start moving on their own, another man enters her life, Logan, a sexy ghost with a dark secret. He says Rick isn't what he seems, and indulging her passion for him could cost her soul.

One thing's for sure, magical forces are at work in the tiny town of Red Grove, and they're converging on Grateful. Life will never be the same once she's forced to choose between the ghost and the graveyard.

My Opinion

Before I start my review let me just say that this book is seriously recommended for ages 18+ so if you are younger than that skip the review and go about your normal day.

I got this book for two reasons- one it was free and two the cover is stunning. I adored it- the sword, her outfit, the graveyard. Due to the cover, I may have thought that Grateful was going to be a kick-butt heroine with no emotional issues. Boy, was I wrong.

Grateful is the heroine- let’s not go into my dislike for the heroine’s name. Just know that the author did indeed explain why her name was Grateful for which this reader was well grateful of.

Grateful is a weak-minded gal who for being in her 20s is still boy-crazy. Heck he doesn’t even have to be a real boy- any boy dead or alive will do. She got burned by her last boyfriend and so her daddy bailed her out with a place to live for free. After swearing off men for good she of course runs into Rick. The caretaker of the graveyard- Grateful is all over him like white on rice after just meeting him. So much for swearing off men. To make things even more complicated Grateful finds out that the free house she is living in is haunted.

She must accept her destiny, and sort out the good dead from the bad. Although Logan one of the ghost has started having feelings for her and is trying to convince her not to accept her destiny so that he can be with her. Like seriously be with her- to find out more you will have to read the book.

The Ghost and The Graveyard was really just not my cup of tea. The book is an easy read and fast-paced so if you have time and don’t mind a little bit of well the weird side of things give it a shot. I just found that at the end, I did not need to know anything else about Grateful.

My Rating 2 out of 5 stars

Favorite Quote "Vampires, zombies, ghouls- all types of unholy beasts."
