Review by Magnolia

There's always fun to be had on a ghoul's night out.

By day, Larue Donavan is a down-to-earth bookstore owner. But by night, she's a world-renowned psychic investigator dedicated to helping lost spirits find peace. Dead people won't leave her alone and Abraham Lincoln thinks he's in charge of her lovelife.

Larue can handle ghosts and undead presidents. It's the living that drive her crazy. When Callahan Weiss moves to town, the handsome newcomer opens a coffee shop right next door. She's smitten from the start, but she's not the only one -- The boutique owner across the street has her eye on Callahan too, and uses witchcraft to fight dirty. When Callahan gets hit by a love spell, Larue will need more than a little help from her ghoul-friends to save the day...

Me and My Ghoulfriends is a humorous, light-hearted book that makes for a great fall evening read. I mean how serious can a book that has Honest Abe giving the heroine love advice be?

Larue Donavan is a heroine of many dimensions that faces unusual challenges. The main one being that she sees ghost and talks with them. She is witty, sarcastic, and committed to helping ghosts cross over as well as those that are being haunted. Her current group of ghoul’s includes Abraham Lincoln and Mrs. Williams. Mrs. Williams’ sarcastic comments had me grinning while Abe’s advice had me rolling my eyes.

The ghouls and Mindy, Larue’s human friend, decides she needs to date more. Although, Larue thinks her life as a daytime book store owner/ nighttime ghost busters is complete, she does find Callahan cute. A normal person faces incredible challenges in dating but Larue’s are above and beyond. I’m amazed Callahan even made it to the first date. Callahan Weiss is the romantic interest that really doesn’t get to play much of the part (due to some underhanded playing by the competition.) Brianna is a villain that works well with the boundaries of this story.

Ms. Pressey offers an amusing tale of ghost antics, evil witches, and the saga of a single woman looking for a good man to date. I can’t wait to read more…I hope it includes Larue and her merry band of ghost
