No Grits No Glory kicks off a new series about people that can communicate with the dead – whether they want to or not.

Brianna was one of those that did not. At the funeral for her brother she made a promise over his casket that ended up gifting her (or cursing depending on your view) with the ability to hear and see the dead. She thought by moving to Savannah Georgia, a place her brother loved, that she would be leaving her gift behind. Well turns out the South has plenty of ghosts and just so happens the house she is renting is full of them.

Steven had a falling out with his father many years ago and left for LA to become a musician. One of his biggest regrets was leaving his little sister behind. No matter where he was he called her a couple time a year. When he is unable to reach her for a period of time he returns home to Savannah only to find Brianna now living in his childhood home and that both his parents and sister died in a fire. Do you see where this is going? Yes the ghost living in the house Brianna is renting are Steven's family. They were murdered and want Brianna to help them bring their murderer to justice.

Along with Steven and Brianna trying to get evidence on the man that killed Steven's family there is also a side story of her brother Declan's new job in the afterlife. He is assigned to helping those that have just died onto the next part of their journey. He also wants nothing more than to see his sister one more time but that is against the rules but hey what are rules for if not to be broken – even in the afterlife. ( )

This book was okay. It is about a woman living in Savannah (my favorite city) who can communicate with the dead. The first five chapters were boring. I was a little more interested about mid way into chapter 6 but mostly I was just ready for this book to be over. There was no suspense, the romance seemed contrived just to be able to say it was in there. The ghosts were the most entertaining characters in the story.

The author has made comparisons to Heather Graham and there is absolutely zero similarity to the writing in this book to the writing of Heather Graham. I will not be reading the next two books in this series, especially once I was the title of the third books is Krewe Souls. Too creepy that Heather Graham has a popular Krewe series and then this series used that name. ( )

When Briana relocates from Boston to Savannah, she hopes she will be leaving the ghostly voices behind. But once she moves into her historic rental, she learns to her dismay that she can now see and hear ghosts. And this family of ghosts can't move on until the man who killed them is brought to justice. Luckily, the only survivor of the ghostly family is a hunk. Now they will work together to bring the killer down.

I really liked this book. It was a bit of fluff but it had a nice little romance going and the Irish twist was nice. Also, she owned a sheltie. I also love the Savannah setting. The whole idea of ghosts having jobs to do after death is entertaining. I will definitely give the second book a try. ( )
