Review: The Restorer By: Amanda Stevens

The Restorer (Graveyard Queen #1)The Restorer by Amanda Stevens

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Amelia has a special gift of seeing ghosts, Devlin is a man haunted, along with a mysterious secret group, a paranormal society, and murders all around - one is left wondering... why is this book part of a series?!

The premise is good, a restorer of cementaries has a gift to see the restless dead, uncovers a body and then more, only finding herself drawn to a haunted detective and being drawn over and over again into the mystery of the murderer, the detective, and a spirit unlike any she has encountered.

But... I found myself getting bored and restless, I don't know if it was the style of writing, the stretched out plot, or a character that seemed more whiny at times than a three year old looking for a nap. I wish the editing process was better, the characters were better - but the story was a good premise, what could go wrong, read and see.
