Veronica “Ron” Wilson has her whole life behind her. At least, that’s what she comes to realize soon after waking up in the mysterious house she had come to investigate. A paranormal investigator by trade, Ron now finds herself investigating her own death with the help of a handful of helpful friendly ghosts -- and one who’s just a pain in the rear-end. Unfortunately, being dead doesn’t keep Ron from noticing that he also possesses quite the nice rear-end or from tingling in ways that almost make her feel alive whenever he’s near….

As if unwanted afterlife crushes weren’t bad enough, Ron soon discovers that she and her fellow ghosts aren’t the house’s only inhabitants. They’re all at the mercy of an entity named Sarah, who looks like a cute and innocent kid, but is in fact the reason each and every one of them died. Now Sarah keeps them prisoner and makes them her playthings, until she gets tired of them and… well, it turns out you can kill someone who’s already dead. Or at least Sarah can.

With the help of her still-living sister, a psychic medium who can talk to the dead, Ron and her ghostly housemates must unlock all of the mysteries that the house has to offer and find the way to defeat Sarah once and for all. Only then will they be free to move on to the other side. But is Ron really ready to go, especially now that she knows there’s a lot of living to do after death?


Review: This was a different take on the whole ghost business. Ron, is a ghost hunter who becomes a ghost after a fatal accident. Imprisoned by an unruly psychopathic child entity, Ron is stuck in a house full of the dead. She needs to find a way to free herself and fellow occupants.
The characters are engaging and interesting. I liked Ron's can do and kinda stubborn attitude. Pretty much everyone else in the book, played second fiddle to her. Ms Bauhaus did an excellent job with the plot, I found it fascinating and was unable to put it down. Her writing was captivating and a bit twisted. I mean a little kid who has this kind of power and basically no moral compass, yikes. Ms Bauhaus does a great job of mixing romance, the paranormal with a hint of mystery and horror. Over all an excellent book.
