What Readers Are Saying
I loved this story, and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good ghost whisperer tale. The writing is crisp and the author does a great job with the POV. Bridget’s voice is snarky enough to keep you smiling while the action and suspense will keep you turning pages well into the night.” – Katie O’Sullivan, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
It is 12:45 a.m. and I have a busy day tomorrow, that will tell you how I felt about this story. This was fantastic, I truly enjoyed this story and mysteries are not normally my forte. This is a paranormal book, which is what got me to open the cover and the book and well crafted storyline kept me hooked.” – Sarah Moon, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
Phantom Touch was a lot of fun! It’s suspenseful and full of action and drama and teenage angst coupled with a unique ability to talk to the dead. It is the start of a series but the story for this book is complete, no big cliff hangers here. Bridget is a great character and she was easy to relate to, even if I am no longer in her generation. I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to the next one!” – Shalina, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
