I won The Ghost of Laurie Floyd in a contest for subscribers of the Haunt Jaunts newsletter (Haunt Jaunts is author Courtney Lynn Mroch's awesome travel website about haunted places, which you can find here: http://www.hauntjaunts.net/.), and I'm glad I got to read it because I really enjoyed it. On her first day at a new job, Megan Daniels sees someone fall off the building, but no body is found. She learns of a woman named Laurie Floyd, who was a secretary in the building and is believed to have jumped to her death a year earlier. Did Laurie really commit suicide, or was it murder? And why does she keep appearing to Megan?
The Ghost of Laurie Floyd is a great book with interesting characters, and it felt very believable to me. I really cared about Megan and wanted her to find out what happened to Laurie. The descriptions of Megan working in the law office were so good that I felt like I worked there...and I've never even worked in an office! When the truth about Laurie's death was revealed, I did not see it coming at all, and I always appreciate it when authors surprise me. I'm looking forward to reading more of Courtney's books in the future. : )
