I’m on tour with End Of The Road, a Paranormal Mystery/Ghost/Romance written by Karen Michelle Nutt.
I had the pleasure to read and review this story and believe me, this one goes right on the top 10 I’ve read this year. Here’s how the story goes:
Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and his death was ruled an unfortunate accident. Despite the fact he can’t recall what happened to him in his last moments of life, he is convinced he was murdered. He has been trapped in limbo until his daughter, Cecilia, unearths his journal and is able to see him. She seeks help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lars’ rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.
And here’s my review (no spoiler).
Loved it loved it loved it.
This book is everything that it should be: funny, sweet, well plotted and written. In a world of stories that want to be different, edgier, pack a punch, this one is a breath of fresh air because it doesn’t want to be any more than what it is: a good story to let you sit back and enjoy after a hard day at work. Everything is ‘normal’, and I’m talking about a story with a ghost.
The thing is, the characters are so real, so well rounded in their normalcy that it could literally be any of us.
I laughed, I was curious as to see if I was right and the culprit was who I thought it would be (and it was, so maybe it’s not heavy on the whodunit, but WHO CARES, it’s so bloody enjoyable!!!), and my eyes misted a couple of time.
I’m glad I read it, and I sure will keep an eye on the Author!
Buy it here, it’s only .99 $ during the Tour!

(Cecilia believes the man who looks like her father is an intruder.)
“Breaking into someone’s house will do that to a person.”
“CeeCee, think about this for a moment. I didn’t break in.”
She narrowed her eyes and her heart began to race all over again.
“You know who I am,” he continued.
She shook her head even though she knew what his next words were going to be.
“I’m your father.”
She laughed and it came out like she’d lost her mind, but her father had been gone a long time and even if this guy’s claims were true, which they weren’t, where had he been for twenty-three years? “You have a warped sense of humor,” she said with a chuckle, but then reined in her laughter when the Lars-lookalike didn’t appear amused, but really what had he expected? “Listen, I’m not sure what you think you’re going to gain here by pretending to be my father. Sure, you look a lot like him, but there’s just one flaw. My father, if he still lived and breathed, would be fifty years old.”
His expression plainly revealed his annoyance with her and he opened his mouth to say something but closed it again when the floor lamp behind him dimmed. Just as the room threatened to go dark, the crackle of electricity brought the light bulb back to life once more.
She stared wide-eyed at the Lars-lookalike for a full two seconds before she realized why something seemed off. She could see the lamp standing tall and bright but not to the side of him. She could see the lamp right through him as if his body mass had suddenly gone transparent. She closed her eyes then reopened them again as if doing so would clear her vision, but nothing changed.
“What’s wrong?” he asked with concern.
Now, wasn’t that a loaded question? “You’re…” she pointed at him and swallowed the lump in her throat. “I-I can see right through you.”
The Lars-lookalike glanced down at himself and cursed. “I’m sorry,” he told her before he winked out. It was the only way she could explain what she witnessed. He was standing there one moment then poof he wasn’t.
She blinked and blinked again. Had she really seen her father’s ghost? “No. No. Not possible.”
