    The Forgotten Child by Melissa Erin Jackson A Riley Thomas Mystery #1 Excellent debut novel that was a joy to read! This book was a delight from beginning to end with just enough creepiness and horror without being over the top. With a reluctant medium hiding from her talent and ghosts that want to and do contact her she begins to realize that she might have a gift that will help rather than harm. With one small boy ghost to find peace for, a malevolent serial killer ghost on the prowl, good friends to support her, a creepy stalker, a victim of the serial killer – one that got away and a romance that was normal and healthy and fun to watch develop…well…I have to say this is an author and series I am really looking forward to reading more of! Thank you to NetGalley and Ringtail Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Supernatural mystery

    This is the debut novel for Melissa Erin Jackson, and it is a fun novel, marginally a mystery story and more a paranormal novel with seances and spirits and a murder or two thrown in. I enjoyed this novel and recommend it as a light book for bedtime reading. Riley Thomas is a waitress in Albuquerque, New Mexico and has a history as a 10-year-old of being a medium for spirits that want to manifest themselves. She is invited to go spend a weekend at a ranch where a series of gruesome murders occurred in the 1980s, and where there is a history of paranormal events. She doesn't want to go, afraid that the spirits will manifest themselves through her, and that is exactly what happens. During the manifestations, she realizes that she has information that can solve several of the ranch's unsolved murders. How can she use her ability as a medium to solve decades-old murders? Riley is a pretty good supernatural sleuth and, with the help of her newly-discovered boyfriend Michael, gradually sets about solving the cold-case murders. Riley as a character is believable as a medium. Although I am sure such things do not happen in life, I was able to suspend disbelief and immerse myself in her seance and visitations by spirits, who often give her the next clue to solve the murders. Although the novel reads like a first novel, I enjoyed it and I think you will too. Recommended. 4/5 stars. Read this and other reviews of upcoming novels at
