Jim and Joyce Lavene’s newest paranormal Dead Girl Blues will have you reading through the night. Magic, Zombies and a story line so well written this whodunit will leave you wanting more.
~Shelley’s Book Case

Ghosts, zombies, werewolves, sorcerers….there is a lot of paranormal going on here in this cozy mystery. But it all works and makes for an enjoyable read. The characters are all believable and interesting.

Dead Girl Blues is a zombie novel with a twist that is new to me. I love finding something unique, original and slightly funny. Imagine a zombie doing a murder investigation. It put a smile on my face, how about yours?

Dead Girl Blues is a different cozy mystery. It has ghosts, zombies, sorcerer and other creatures. It has lots of drama, humor, wit , car chases, romance and surprises….I want to read the next book in the series. Has lot of characters that I want to find out what happens next.

There is something for everyone in this book. I liked this author team and will be watching for more books.
~Bab’s Book Bistro

There is a good balance of characters and several “mysteries” to figure out.
~Storeybook Reviews

It ‘s a paranormal mystery compelling, original, different from the usual, with likeable characters and a plot really well developed.

This book is really a fun, fast paced read with zombies or Life Extended People ( LEPs – a nice term for zombies), wizards, ghost and even werewolves, add a touch of romance and a dash of mystery and you have a really fun way to spend an evening.
~Tea and A Book

This was a well written story with a great storyline…This book has a lot of mystical creatures, so if you are a fan of that type of thing, this is the book for you.
~Melina’s Book Blog

This is every bit as good as the first book and I couldn’t be happier….New mysteries. More mayhem. And lots of ghoulish fun.

If you like cozies with a little bit of twisted reality – this should satisfy your need.
~Lilac Reviews

This second installment in this series was even better than the first book, BROKEN HEARTED GHOUL…The Lavenes are taking this series beyond the zombie realm of things and creating whole new levels…
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews​

…this one grabs you and pulls you in and won’t let go until the mystery is solved. You find yourself reading and definitely not wanting to put it down for anything.
~Community Bookstop

Another great series by my favorite cozy author duo…This is really a different take on a cozy mystery and even Zombies.
~A Chick Who Reads

It’s a unique series with unconventional characters that tells a great story. I read and enjoy all types of books and I certainly enjoyed this one. I look forward to discovering more about the characters along with what happens next.
~Cozy Up With Kathy​

I was feverishly turning pages and loving every minute of it. This is a series I am looking forward to continuing and I hope it goes on for a long time!

By Joyce and Jim Lavene

• Genre – Cozy Mystery (PARANORMAL)

When Nashville cop Skye Mertz and her husband, Jacob, are killed in a wreck, Skye is given the opportunity to come back for twenty years to raise her five-year-old daughter, Kate. With her ghostly mother-in-law’s help, Skye hopes to be there until Kate is old enough to take care of herself.

But three years into her twenty-year service to Abraham Lincoln Jones, the man who gave her the extra time, Skye is beginning to think life might have been easier before she died.

Abe asks her to investigate the murder of his sorcerer, Harold the Great, a man who was a victim of too many snakes. And the Life Extended People (LEPs – a nice term for zombies) who work for Abe have begun turning into ghosts and disappearing. Only Lucas, the possibly evil, amnesiac sorcerer who lives with Skye and her family, can save her from being the next victim of the deadly curse.

To make matters more complicated, Skye has found a lead in solving the riddle of her husband’s death. She has never believed Jacob died as a result of the crash, but hasn’t been able to prove it. Many other people have lost their lives in the same lonely stretch of highway that he did three years before. Skye goes against Abe’s express wishes to discover the truth with a crazy man bent on vengeance.
