Giving Up The Ghost Review



Kylie McAllister has it all until her world is shattered by the death of her husband, Jackson.  After a year of grieving, Kylie uses the proceeds from Jackson’s life insurance to purchase a plantation home on the outskirts of New Orleans to begin rebuilding her life with their daughter, Abby.  Confirmed bachelor, Ryan LaCroix, has no intentions of settling down with anyone, let alone his best friend’s widow, but somehow Kylie and Abby find their way into his heart.

     After discovering an old Ouija board in the attic of her new home, Kylie unwittingly opens a cosmic door to an incubus who pretends to be the dead husband she is so desperately struggling to let go of.  She falls deep under his potent spell of delicious sex and malevolent obsession while he gradually drains her life to fortify his own.  By the time she realizes he’s an impostor, she is powerless to stop him.  Together, with Jackson’s subliminal guidance and the help of a kind voodoo practitioner, Ryan and Kylie wage a fight for her life against the evil entity.


This is by far by favorite book by Melissa. After resigning myself to the fact that the lump in my throat would be a constant from the start, I followed Kylie’s journey! I felt her grief, fear & joy, as she stuggles to let go of her late husband and give in & love again. Ryan is that one who helps her let go!

Melissa does a phenomenal job at making you feel a part of Kylie’s grieving process, her desperation to hold on to her late husband & her fears of what is truly taking place. 

I highly recommend this, but be sure to keep several boxes of tissue handy! No other book has made me cry so much! I LOVED IT!
