Review – The Dead Among Us

The Dead Among Us by Carrie Marsh

My Review:

Another fun cozy mystery from Carrie Marsh. This time we get a paranormal vibe which makes you question, do you believe in ghosts or is it a trick of the imagination? Laura finds herself involved in solving another murder mystery, and this one is 150 years old! There’s tons of trouble and chaos and a few discovered secrets along the way.

The Dead Among Us is a great mix of all things that make cozy mysteries enjoyable; murder, secrets, small clues, and nothing too gory or scary that will keep you up at night. Carrie’s writing is easy to read, intriguing, and thoroughly enjoyable. This is the fourth book in the series, which is somewhat written as a stand-alone which means the author doesn’t give away previous story lines, so you could technically read them in any order you wish. I would recommend this to anyone that loves cozy mysteries, especially if you like a paranormal twist.

I received a complimentary copy via the author. All reviews 100% reflect my honest opinion.

My Rating: 4/5 Stars

About the Book

Title: The Dead Among Us

Author: Carrie Marsh

Published: May 12, 2017

Book Blurb: The only thing worse than a murder is a haunting… but can the two be one in the same?

With no murders plaguing Millerfield for over a year, Amateur sleuth Laura Howcroft is finally able to enjoy her surroundings without distraction. Happy to settle into life with the man she loves, and Monty too, of course. Laura is able to focus her attention on being the best receptionist the Woodend Cottage Hotel has ever seen. Even Janet has finally found the love of her life. What could possibly go wrong?

But when an uninvited guest turns Melrose Place – Janet’s new home – upside down, Laura finds herself, not only back on the case, but trapped in the 1800’s… just in time for a murder. With a strange ghost scaring away all of the clientele and potential buyers from Melrose Place and a brutal murder playing out in front of her in a visit to the past, Laura, Howard, and Monty find themselves on opposite sides of time. But what could a centuries old murder have to do with a present day haunting?

Can Laura discover a connection between the Melrose Place Haunting and the ghost of a dead aristocrat?

Or is something far more sinister at work?
