    One thought on “Seeing The Light”

    1. First of all? All book that uses the verbs hut-hutted and hut-hutting? That's a book for me!Seeing the Light is a fun paranormal mystery that is set in Edmonton. Reading a book set in the city you call home is always at least a little fun because you get to pick out the landmarks, guess at some of the settings and fully visualize others, so let's face it, between that and the hut-hutting I wasn't ever going to hate this book. But those aren't the things that made me really like it (and I DO real [...]

    2. This was a quirky ghost story set in Edmonton, Alberta. With likeable characters Marie, who can see ghosts but doesn’t want to, and Farley, who is a recent ghost who wants to find out what caused his death, this story was a fun and fast read.I will admit that I was a bit leery at first as the premise of a reluctant “ghost whisperer” character is nothing new, but there is a gentle sassiness to this story that is quite entertaining. Marie is very much an optimist, even when her string of bad [...]

    3. A first novel, set in Edmonton, Alberta, with promise of more to come with the same characters. It was a fun & quirky read as I came to know the players. I warmed up to Marie Jenner and her unexpected, troubled ghost, Farley, right away. Marie's possible love interest, James, took me a bit longer, but I see his potential and anticipate his growth in subsequent stories! Marie's boss is a familiar character, delightfully similar to many petty, autocrats I've known.Marie, reluctant ghost whispe [...]

    4. A gritty paranormal mystery set in Edmonton. Marie Jenner has just landed a new job--unfortunately her office building is haunted by the ghost of its former handyman. Ghosts are the family business, one that Marie has been trying to get away from, but she reluctantly agrees to help Farley solve the mystery of his death. There are plenty of twists and turns, plus an explosion. The set up for book two looks intriguing.

    5. A great start to a paranormal mystery series set in Edmonton. Marie Jenner has a crystal clear voice, one that carries this book through. Excited to read more. :)

    6. I thought I had already written a review, but apparently not, so here we go again :) I had the pleasure of meeting Ms Bell at the Calgary Entertainment Expo this year. The book cover caught my eye so I wandered over to her booth to check it out. I love all things paranormal but am usually a little leery about stories involving ghosts. I had read one before where the main character fell in love with the ghost and ultimately ended up making out with said ghost (seriously?!?). This turned me off of [...]

    7. Don't be mistaken by the title -- this story is no yawn-fest guide to spiritual growth. Marie Jenner is an endearing down-to-earth protagonist who takes us through her chaotic quest to become normal, at a pace that flows briskly and probably doesn't indicate Marie's going to achieve her goal anytime soon, either. She whines but always just enough to keep the reader sympathetic, and never tips into the realm of a bleeding heart. The treatise of helping spirits move on is handled in a unique and v [...]

    8. Marie Jenner's life is lived from pay cheque to pay cheque, from trauma to trauma and from ghost to ghost. Not figurative ghosts like the one's you find in phycological novels, but real honest-to-God dead people. She can see them and because she can see them, she has a responsibility to them. If that weren't bad enough she is chronically under employed, running from a stalking ex-boy friend, trying desperately not to fall in love with a new male friend, and dealing with murder mystery that falls [...]

    9. This book was fantastic! I met the author at Calgary Expo, when I was a bit tired of going to con and just looking for a book to sit and read. She recommended I start with this one, and it was a fantastic read! I just finished it today, after losing it in moving clutter for several months. What a great find and a quick, entertaining read. I really liked the pacing, in particular.

    10. Promising beginning of a categorization defying series. Part mystery novel, part supernatural fantasy with a sprinkling of humor. Marie took a while to grow on me, I wanted to yell at her a lot, but I liked how fleshed out she is, flaws and all. Looking forward to her next adventure.

    11. I read this cover to cover today. I liked the perspective shift from character to character. There was much happening but it did not feel contrived. I am so pleased that there is another book, Drowning in Amber which I shall be reading this evening instead of everything else I should be doing.

    12. I love this book. Farley the ghost needs Marie Jenner to help his solve a murder--his own. What they discover on their journey is a conspiracy of greater proportions than either of then realized. A great adventure that will leave you wanting more. And there are more! Yee-haw!

    13. Quirky and lovely. Not a fan of paranormal or romance, but there was enough mystery to keep me highly entertained.

    14. This book didn't blow me away the second time as it did the first, for some reason. But it was still very good.The premise is quite clever: a woman who sees ghosts (and comes from a long line of women who can, including her sickly off-screen mother), and who is supposed to use this power to move them onto the next stage. Except she doesn't want to, seeing as how it made an absolute mess of her mom's life.Then she takes a new job, and immediately meets the ghost of a man who was killed in the bui [...]

    15. I've had this book recommended on reddit several times to me, and others. I finally got around to reading it. I should have listened sooner.What a good, fun read! I am a fan!I wasn't sure what to expect from this but I found Marie had a good voice throughout. I also really enjoyed the chapters from Farley's POV. I like the hints of possible romance eventually maybe between Marie and James. I liked the mystery was enough of a mystery that you kept on reading but also fun to try and guess what's g [...]

    16. I was going to give this book a four-star but I'm having a bit of trouble with the female character. I feel that the author is confused with how she wants her character to be. There were a few iffy moments that I was not particularly pleased about and this was in direct result of the not so well thought out female character. The female character is not terrible, to be precise, but I think she needs a little more definition. Having said all that, the author has a very good story line and since th [...]

    17. This first book in a planned series offers an unusual heroine, a side-kick who is a ghost and assorted helpful and confounding characters. I connected with Marie jenner and willing followed her sometimes humorous sometimes frustrating from her reluctance to get involved with the ghost to full out helping him. Danger that killed the ghost's human form stalks Marie, a cute building maintenance guy helps her and she, in the end, pulls all her skills together for a satisfying ending. If you like rea [...]

    18. Needed more back storyThe main characters were likeable. Things were tied together at the end. In between, the story was erratic. The major characters had two poles to their personalities and vacillated between them. Several times I was tempted to stop but there was enough to keep me to the end. Minor characters were better realized.

    19. This was a great story. I felt a connection to Marie and her crazy life. She is unique among heroines and her ability to see and talk to ghosts was the perfect mix for adventure.

    20. I loved this book for its quirky but honest heroine. It's a silly mystery about a woman who sees ghosts. In this first of the series, she starts to come to terms with her inherited skill. Very funny.
