Deader Still by Jordaina Sydney Robinson
Immediately upon finishing book 1 I jumped right into reading book 2, Deader Still. In this book Bridget has barely finished solving a murder mystery before she finds herself immersed in solving another set of murders. We get to know the characters well and there are some seriously hilarious ghosts running about. I think it’s hilarious that the police are called GB’s or Ghosting Busters. Reminds me of the Ghostbuster song.. Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters!
Bridget begins to come to terms with being dead and based on the life she lead while she was alive, I think she’s better off in this afterlife being a ghost. She lost the cheating fiance and bland life. Here in the afterlife she’s got friends that have her back no matter what and a potential yummy guy that’s totally off limits.
One of the underlying themes in this book is the idea that while we’re living we have a tendency to put things off for the right time. The right time might never come and you’ll find yourself dead before you find the time to do the things you want to do. Live in the moment and make the time to prioritize what’s important to you now, not later.
“I’ll wait until I’m thinner. I’ll wait until I earn more. I’ll wait until the children are older. I’ll wait until I have more time. I’ll wait until someone’s not trying to kill me.’ You’ll wait your life away and then one day you’ll wake up dead and realise that all the things you were waiting for weren’t really in the way.”
My Rating: 5/5 Stars

Book Blurb: Bridget Sway has survived the first week of her afterlife – but only just. Working a job that still doesn’t pay, wearing a uniform that’s still a fashion disaster and now facing a week-long assessment, things can only get better … right? Wrong. And there’s another dead ghost in her locker to prove it.
When Bridget’s caught holding the proverbial smoking gun over the second body, the police are even more determined to pin the murders on her. So once again it’s left to Bridget and her friends to prove her innocence, but with the Ghosting Busters (the afterlife über police) taking an interest in her, things aren’t going to be so straightforward.
While dodging both the police and her handsome parole officer, simultaneously trying to pass her assessment, Bridge needs to find the killer … before the killer finds her.
