    Addicting and wonderful paranormal suspense

    I had a list of things to do on my day off, but then I started Give Up the Ghost and my list fell to the wayside. I was immediately pulled into the story and couldn’t tear myself away but for a few minutes at a time. It’s so rare for two back-to-back books in a series to wow me enough to garner 5 stars, but the Not Dead Yet series continues to deliver fun dialogue, interesting storylines, great characters, and addicting suspense complete with well-timed twists. There is plenty of back story provided by the author in Give Up the Ghost to allow it to standalone, but given the history of the characters, I think this series works best if they are read in order. I was again struck by the array of characters the series offers. The multitude of vibrant, different personalities create a wonderful community/family within the book I’m happy to be lost in. The loving but fun and snarky comradery makes for a pleasurable read that never fails to bring a smile to my face. And though there was plenty of humor in this book, Give Up the Ghost also delivered a deeper, palpable emotion than the first book with the individual character progressions, the relationships among the secondary and main characters, and the romance between Hudson and Wes. I loved that the author capitalized on all the relationships cultivated in the first and second book and I found myself caught up in the angst, swooning over the sweet romance, and celebrating the joyful moments alongside the characters. As with the first book, the storyline and paranormal side of things continues to be unique and exciting with a brisk pacing and great action scenes that make it impossible to set this one down. Honestly, Give Up the Ghost delivers on all fronts. This is definitely not your run of the mill paranormal romantic suspense and I’d highly recommend the series to anyone who enjoys the trope. *eARC received via Netgalley.

    Give Up The Ghost

    I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it. I read book 1 in this series earlier this year and really enjoyed it, so as soon as I saw the sign-up form for an ARC copy of book 2 I jumped on the chance to read book 2 early. Give up the Ghost is an excellent sequel, just like the first book there is suspense, a lot of paranormal stuff, secrets, reveals, a great romance and a tight group of friends. There so much to like about this series. In Give Up The Ghost Wesley and some of his friends started their own investigation company and while they are already busy with non paranormal cases they get involved in some paranormal stuff as well. Multiple ghosts are on a place they shouldn't be, imps in a café and other strange happenings. They try to figure out what's going on. I had a theory, that was sort of correct or in the right directions at least, but also wrong on other points. It was a nice reveal when we find out what's causing some of the trouble. Besides the paranormal suspense plot line there is enough other paranormal stuff and character focused plot lines going on. Wesley is keeping a big secret from everyone and you just know it's going to come out at some point and be worse than when he told everyone earlier. And that's exactly what happens, but I also liked how it wasn't blown out of proportion. It was a big thing and he hurt people by keeping it a secret, but they deal with it in a realistic way. I really like the way the author blends the multiple aspects of this book, it has paranormal, suspense and romance all in one book and it's all done so well. And I love this tight group of friends around Wesley and seeing how they all interact and work together. There are new side characters as well and more about the the characters we already know. I love how they have each other's back and are there for each other, even while things don't always go smoothly, it's clear they care and are there for each other. The romance is also well done. Wesley and Hudson are having some struggles they need to deal with. Wesley is keeping this big secret and has his own fears. Hudson is acting secretive too and it's clear they have to deal with this before they move further. There are some relationship difficulties they have to deal with in this book, but at the end they emerge closer than before. I also like how even with the troubles they have, their love for one another is clear and there are a bunch of sweet and intimate scenes as well. I also liked seeing how Wesley develops in this book, he has to make some big decisions and learn to deal with his new magic and what it means. I like how he still is the same character, but also changes. And after this book he probably has even more developing to do. The world building turns a bit into an anything exist type of paranormal worlds, of which I am not a fan, but I like we don't get overwhelmed with a multitude of paranormal creatures in this book and only get to see a few new ones in this book. I liked learning a bit more of the world and the paranormal creatures that exist in this world. I am not fully sure what to think of something that happens at the end, but I do like how it got resolved. The main storyline of this book gets resolved, but there's enough left open for future books in the series and I am already looking forward to book 3! To summarize: To Give up the Ghost was an exciting sequel. It has paranormal, suspense, great characters and some romance too. And everything is blended well together. There are some strange paranormal happenings they're investigating and I was partly thinking in the right direction, but also was surprised by a reveal. Wesley is keeping a big secret from his friends and I was waiting to see what would happen when the secret comes to light, and it was bad when it does, but I also liked how it doesn't get blown up and was dealt with realistically. With Wesley's secret and Hudson acting secretive they have some relationship issues to work through, but I also like how there are enough sweet and intimate moments and by the end of he book they seem closer than ever. It's also great to see how Wesley develops and has to learn to deal with his new magic and what it means. The tight group of friends around Wesley is also great to read about and how they have each other's back. There is more about the paranormal world we learn too. All in all this was a great read and I am eagerly awaiting book 3!

    Give Up the Ghost

    book 2 in the not dead yet series, picks up not long after book 1 ends. in give up the ghost, wes and hudson are making a go of things, except that wes is keeping a very big secret from his vampire lover. there were aftereffects to the events that occurred in book 1, and i would recommend to anyone interested in picking this book up, start there. this is decidedly a continuation of the story, even though book 1 functioned as a standalone. you continue to spend time with the crew of people we met, and a few new friends too. but this story really just continues to immerse us in this world, and i loved every second of it. **give up the ghost will publish on june 3, 2019. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/carina press in exchange for my honest review.

    A great addition to the series

    As soon as I finished book one I ready for more and Give Up the Ghost delivered in spades. Wes and Hudson continue to be flawed, complex, and absolutely engaging characters. Wes is struggling with his abilities, Hudson is ready to take their relationship to the next level, and the city is in danger...So they have their work cut out for them. I absolutely loved it, all in all a very enjoyable read and a great sequel to Not Dead Yet. *I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy provided by Carina Press through NetGalley*

    Great new entry in series ... Hoping for many more

    I am really enjoying this series. Give Up the Ghost is an excellent sequel. The world building is perfectly paced; no superfluous explanations bogging down the story telling. The characters are all multi-dimensional (some literally!) and I love how no one is 'perfect'. Wes and Hudson and the crew form an eclectic, extended family I hope to be able to read about for many books to come. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, especially if you like your m/m romance with a little paranormal.
