I am a big fan of Ms. O’Sullivan’s novels so I jumped at the chance of receiving an ARC copy of Ghosts Don’t Lie. Here are my thoughts:
A captivating new novel.
Ghosts Don’t Lie is a mixture of drama, psychic phenomena, romance and suspense.
Jillian is the mother of three young children and married to a disreputable lawyer. From the beginning of the novel, it’s clear Jillian is in a unhappy marriage. Then Jillian finds out her great aunt has been in a car accident and is in a coma. Jillian leaves the children with her husband and rushes to New Jersey to be with her dying aunt.
Shortly thereafter, we begin to get a sense of who Jillian really is and we find out she can speak with ghosts, but hasn’t been using her psychic gifts since she was a young teenager. Jillian’s deceased grandmother acts as her spirit guide throughout the novel and helps Jillian when she needs her–and boy does she need her.
As the story unfolds, Jillian discovers how deceitful and dishonest her husband has been in the past, she’s reacquainted with her old best friend, meets a possible new love interest, and has a mother that’s hard to wrap your mind around. With so much going on in her life, she decides she can no longer hide her ability to communicate with the dead and begins speaking openly with ghosts. She starts using her gifts to resolve multiple family issues and help her friends.
Ghosts Don’t Lie is layered with haunting deceptions and intriguing twists and turns. Some scenes tug at your heart strings while others make your pulse race. It’s a remarkable and well written novel with a fresh perspective and a cast of memorable characters. I highly recommend this one.
If this sounds like a novel you’d be interested in reading, here is a link to amazon
