Grave Things Like Love

We rated this book:


Funeral Girl. That’s what they call Elaine because she lives and works in a funeral home that her family has owned for generations. She enjoys hanging out with friends and watching Dragonfly with Miles, but the family obligation causes her to bail on plans often. When Xander arrives in town, Elaine feels a spark. Xander is passionate about paranormal investigations, and would love access to Elaine’s old family home. Pressured by her friends to be present, her father to continue in the family business, and Xander to ghost hunt against her family’s wishes, she doesn’t know where to turn or how to speak up without hurting those she loves.

The thrill of first love, the stress of college and career, and the wonder of the unknown all play parts in this typical teenage story, though not enough to call this a love story or a paranormal story. It is more a slice of life story with a side of ghosts and romance. It’s a story that could use more meat but works well enough as an appetizer with a little bit of everything – love triangle, ghosts, a comic con, friend drama – to interest anyone looking for a quick read.
