Another one that Leah Cutter knocks out of the park!

In this one, Franklin's ghosts are coming back after finding their peace. He thinks that maybe using Eddie's blade on them might set them to rest but a crazy doctor comes and steals it from him. Franklin has to stop the doctor before he misuses the blade's power.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a cute ghost story in honour of Friday the 13th! I say cute because the story follows a nice farmer and his ghost adventures in the midst of his interactions with family and his girlfriend, Julie. It felt for the most part like a nice, wholesome story.

I didn't read the first book in the series and that doesn't seem to have hampered my reading at all. The author gives enough information in this book on what happened in the last so you won't be lost.

I had some problems with the book, mainly that, as one reviewer already said, it was pretty anticlimactic. There was a lot leading up to a big fight but the fight never really came. I enjoyed the lead-up but it such an easy resolution that I just felt let down by the end.

Julie's portrayal also really bothered me. She was constantly described by how attracted Franklin was to her, even when the situation was completely inappropriate. I think the author was trying to set up their relationship and how in love they were but it was clear from her first introduction. Franklin falling head over heels every single time she was with him was unnecessary.

I'd like to see more from this series because of the feel-good tone but hopefully the author finds better ways of describing female characters. ( )

This is a continuation of the Popcorn Thief but can be read alone.

Franklin continues to work with ghosts that have problems passing through, somehow they get confused of what they're supposed to do so he just helps them along. But now instead of being there and needing help, they howl loudly and look horrible--where their eyes were are now dark holes, like they've lost their souls.

So Franklin with the help of his brother, unbury an obsidian knife, thinking that will help the ghosts. But a "doctor" comes and steals the knife from Franklin. What does the doctor want with the knife and all the souls he's been collecting? Will Franklin get the knife back and do what he needs to do?

This is such a great following story from the Popcorn Thief--a lot of ghostly goings on and a bit a romance thrown in between Franklin and Julie. Ms, Cutter's characters are developing well and feel so real that you're right there with Franklin working with his ghosts. There's a bit of eeriness like that on a Halloween night. It's a great read for everyone.

I won the e-book from the Early Reviewers on LibraryThing. ( )

The terrible grammar ruined this book for me. The writer seems overly focussed on the colour of the characters showing a level of racial insensitively and ignorance that is quite disappointing in this day and age. The story is actually not too bad and so it is a shame that its flaws lets the book down so badly. ( )

This book, by Leah Cutter, was admittedly a rather uninteresting novel to read. I found as I pursued the text that the content failed to grab my attention-- whether this was due to a rather simplistic writing style (perhaps better suited to a younger audience), or the abbreviated plot, I am uncertain. However, potential readers should consider whether they wish to delve into a novel that engages and captivates its audience, or rather one that allows the reader to skim without the need for absolute focus.
