Sadie’s Spirit

You can’t just show up here like a ghost from my past and ask for help.

Sadie’s Spirit


Note: While I’m reviewing each title individually, they’re available in box sets.

Publisher’s Synopsis:
Sadie didn’t believe in ghosts, until she became one.

When pragmatic physician and budding researcher, Sadie Crawford, goes for a hike, she didn’t imagine she would die on the trail. She definitely didn’t imagine she would become a ghost. Rather than idly lingering on Earth, she focuses on finding her killer. Uncovering the truth means asking for help from her psychic ex-boyfriend–the one she’d dumped because she hadn’t believed in his supernatural abilities. Recruiting Asher Brenner plunges him not danger as Sadie’s search for answers becomes a race to stop a killer.

Asher Brenner, former police psychic, gave up his life os spiritual encounters after a case went wrong. Now working as a firefighter in a quiet rural town in North Georgia, Asher avoids ghosts and the trouble they cause. But when Sadie reappears in his life, he can’t turn her away. He agrees to help her find her attacker, but this may be the last case he ever solves.

Will they find the murderer before another victim falls?

Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating mostly between Sadie & Asher, but there are some sections from antagonists’ POV.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
This is book 1 in CB Samet’s Romancing the Spirit series. Books 1-6 have been combined into a box set (ebook & audio). These are short, closed door, paranormal romantic suspense novellas.

Sadie’s Spirit starts with Sadie realizing she’s now a ghost. She’s desperate to learn what happened and why her spirit is still sticking around. Seeking out her former boyfriend, Asher means admitting that he was right about a lot of things she refused to see when they were together.

I liked the way Samet brought this story to life and reunited this couple. Asher is understandably angry and hesitant at first, but time with Sadie helps him remember what worked so well between them. I enjoyed the action and suspense. Several twists and a nice HEA. I wanted more – but in a good way. Samet crafts a complete and enjoyable short here.

Looking forward to book 2, Willow’s Windfall.

There is nothing specifically that I can point to about Jennie Neville’s narration – just that I couldn’t click with her. She used a variety of voices and accents and did emotions well, so it’s just one of those things. I stopped listening and will read the series.
