Fans of light paranormal romance should keep an eye out for Melissa Ecker. In Giving up the Ghost, she brings readers a warm and engaging tale about transcending deep, personal loss and finding love, despite great evil.

Kylie and Jackson have the kind of marriage one can dream of, and a beautiful daughter, Abby. A bright future lies ahead of them, or so it seems. A tragic accident changes all of that in a heartbeat, and Kylie finds herself in the unenviable position of widow and single mother.

All is not lost, however. Kylie has the support of her loving family, as well as Jackson's best friend, Ryan, who steps into the breach. He's never settled down and it's while he spends time with Kylie and Abby, that he grows into the realisation that he wants more than just friendship, and that fatherhood appeals to him.

Unfortunately Kylie's grief is still fresh, and her love for Jackson threatens to turn into an obsession as she hangs onto his memories. Symbols of this include his wedding ring, which she wears on a chain around her neck, or the fact that she goes to bed wearing one of his sweatshirts.

This fixation on her lost husband offers a malignant spirit--an incubus--the opportunity to latch onto Kylie and feed off her vitality. At first she welcomes this intrusion, confusing it with her husband's spirit, but its presence in her life soon displays a darker side. Kylie begins to weaken physically and emotionally, and cut herself off from the ones closest to her.

In order to recover Kylie literally needs to give up the ghost that's haunting her, and it's touching to view her transformation from grief-stricken widow, into a radiant, confident woman, despite the grave danger in which she's placed.

Stylistically I had a few quibbles with regard to the editing, which could have called for better layering and a tighter pace. Certain key scenes were a bit too short while others could have benefited from trimming, especially near the end where some of the tension could have been ratcheted up. I had some issues with regard to motivations, in that I felt Kylie's and Ryan's acceptance of supernatural events was a bit too convenient, but this did not detract much from my overall enjoyment of the novel.

Giving up the Ghost is, on the whole, a satisfying read within its genre, and if I had to highlight my favourite scene, it's definitely the one where Kylie and Ryan make love out in the woods while it's raining--incredibly sensual.

This story held me. I read it in less than 24 hours. It had me in tears after chapter 2 and beyond. Kylie has the perfect life. Perfect husband, perfect family and a beautiful daughter. Then life changed in the blink of an eye.

Enter... Ryan. The yum factor on Ryan is OFF THE CHARTS!

This story ventured into the realm of demons. An incubus in fact, however anything that has to do with evil in the paranormal/spirit form tends to freak me out. I spent a good majority of the book with goosebumps on my skin. I love it!

I loved the story, I loved the happy ever after, and I loved seeing how it all wrapped up so nicely in the end. I could clearly see how the characters went on with their lives, a bit scared, but who isn't in life.

Well done, Melissa. You did a fantastic job!

Ouija boards bring trouble. The trouble that's beyond our realm... like spirits. Yes, that's right, ghosts. For a grieving woman, the crazy possibility of connecting with her dead husband convinces her to use the Ouija board. And at first, it's simple comforts of her husband's spirit that keeps her going.

But what Kylie can't see, what she doesn't know, is far more dangerous. She becomes drained. She loses far too much weight, unexplainable occurrences happen in the house. People around her are wondering if Kylie is loosing touch with reality. Who could blame her, though, after losing her husband in a tragic accident? Of course she's going to want to hold on to him, his memory, for as long as possible. But there's her daughter, young Abby to think about. And then, there's Ryan.

Ryan is Jackson's best friend. Neither Kylie or Ryan want to feel the physical and emotional connection that they have for one another. It's wrong for many reasons....isn't it? Jackson is gone, but both are honoring his memory and keeps them from starting over, and moving on.

As the time goes on, the two spend more and more time together, and their attraction escalates into something more. And someone, or rather something, doesn't like that one bit. The ghostly visits that were once calm and comforting to Kylie are now angry, pushy visits. And that leaves physical damages. And the tale only gets more twisted and deadly as the story goes on.

Giving Up the Ghost is a thrilling romantic ghost story. One of the many things that stood out are the characters. Kylie, Abby, Ryan and the secondary characters are ones that won't be easily forgotten. And the paranormal element in such an emotional story kept the pages turning. I didn't want to put this down. With a story that combines many of my favorite elements in a good book: romance, an emotional punch, and the world of the unknown, ghosts, I enjoyed it immensely.

Do you enjoy a little spookiness in your romance? Pick up Giving Up the Ghost, a haunting ghost story that will touch your heart, but send chills down your spine at the same time.
