Title: The Girl Who Talks to Ghosts (GhostWriters Series Book Two)

Author: J.H. Moncrieff

Release date: April 22, 2017

Here we are! Book Two in Moncrieff’s absolutely fantastic GhostWriters Series!

‘The Girl Who Talks to Ghosts’ picks up sometime after the events of Book One.

This one is focused more on Kate and her role as a medium. Since Book One has ended, she has worked on building a career out of helping people with issues regarding spiritual contact.

It’s through this that she is contacted to help out a mother, desperate to find a solution to what is afflicting her daughter.

What I Liked: As with all Moncrieff books, J.H. creates characters with amazing depth but also settings that play an important role. Here, Poveglia itself is a setting that brings a lot of different elements to the table.

I won’t spend much time going into Poveglia and it’s history itself, but a lot of bad things have happened there throughout history. J.H. touches on a few of them and the amazing aspect here is that the descriptions come from her own journey to visiting the island itself.

This has elements of a psychological thriller, supernatural adventure, as well as character driven drama. J.H. really crafted a fun read, one that brought another element to Kate and Jackson’s relationship.

What I didn’t like: Minor things, but I really wished we would’ve dived even deeper into the doctor’s back story and life on the island.

As well, at the beginning, I wasn’t a fan of Kate being so jealous of Jackson and a perceived relationship. Felt a bit too high-schoolish.

Why you should buy this: Well, A – Poveglia. I mean, any book set there is a must read. B – a further entry into the ongoing adventures of Kate and Jackson is always a cause for celebration! With a bunch more books already out in this series, the GhostWriters group of stories may just be the perfect thing for those looking for spooky October reads!
