Audie Award Nominee, Fantasy, 2013

Never acknowledge the dead.
Never stray far from hallowed ground.
Never get close to the haunted.
Never, ever tempt fate.

My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father until now.

Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

    " Karen (thank you!) said she is reading this series. I like what she has recommended, and this is no exception. A thriller detective combo with a little Gothic romance stirred in the cauldron. Amelia Gray breaks the primo rule in working in graveyards, and we get to read about how that works out for her in the next 360 pages. Stevens' style suits the material. Amelia Gray, graveyard restorer, is calm, practical and professional. She has responsibilities as an entrepreneur, she listens to her parents (ah, well, except for that once), and she is courteous. When bodies that aren't supposed to be in the graves they're in start piling up, she gets a tad squeamish, but she pulls it together. The settings are muted gray, foggy heat with moisture dripping from the Spanish moss. The cemetery gates are locked, but that only keeps the living out, right? And only sometimes. You need a rearview mirror on your shoulder to read this book late at night. Or a rotating chair. "

    " It was very readable and seemed to be an interesting mystery, but the end left me confused. Sequel coming? "

    " This book was scary! Found myself looking at shadows in my house at night, worried something might jump out at me! Haven't had a story freak me out like this since I was a kid! Good job, Amanda Stevens, good job! Now "dying" for the next installment! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty A. | 2/4/2013

    " All I can say about the first book in the Graveyard Queen Series is this: It's a delicious appetizer and makes you crave for more. "

    " Great book. Definitely spooky. Liked the heroine but her tendency to obsess over Devlin caused it to lag in parts. The only flaw, in my opinion, in this intriguing story. "

    " This book is amazing for being the first in it's series that has attract my attention within the first couple paragraphs. The main character repaired graveyards but when she fell into a murder investigation, secret started coming out of the woodwork, ones that involved her family. "
