I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Sloane Osbourne is a paranormal realtor in the business of selling haunted houses but, in truth, she’s only searching for one ghost. And her time is running out. It’s the 366th day after her fiance’s death. Michael used to like putting things off for “a year and a day”-so tonight’s the night. Sloane will do anything to make contact with him before the clock strikes midnight. When she gets a call to check out a home in Waukesha, Wisconsin, it’s the last place she thinks Michael would contact her. Sloane is dead wrong. Michael appears…and tells her to get out of the house. Immediately.”
I haven’t read a book in the paranormal genre before.You can normally find me reading romance with the occasional sci-fi, fantasy, or YA thrown in. When I was given this book I didn’t really know what I would think about it, but I always like to try new things so I jumped right in, and I was pleasantly surprised! I really liked this book and I hope to see more books released from this series.
When the book starts out we find Sloane setting off to check out a house in Waukesha Wisconsin, hoping she will finally be able to contact her fiance who died in a car crash a year ago right before their wedding. What she doesn’t expect is to find him, only to have him warn her of the house and what secrets it holds. When she starts to hear and see the ghosts of women coming from the basement, she enlists the help of her friend Jonah, an FBI agent and also a sensitive that can connect with ghosts, to find out what happened to them. As she starts to investigate the disappearances of women from the area over the years, she finds herself face to face with the murderer himself. Did she delve too deep in the search for Michael that she will finally join him in the afterlife, or will she find a way to fight and survive.
I highly recommend you give this book a try. It was a quick read that really had me hooked, and now I want more. I’d love to have more back story on how Sloane first met Michael and Jonah, and how she got involved with the paranormal in the first place. There is so much potential for this series and I am really excited to see where the authors take it from here.
My Rating: 4 stars!

About the Authors
Kat Green is an alias for co-writers Kat de Falla and Rachael Green (See what they did there? 😉
Rachel Green has always believed in ghosts but saw her first full body apparition while working at an old movie theater in college. When she met Kat de Falla at a writer’s workshop, she knew she’d met a kindred spirit – one who was also sensitive to the hereafter. And after bonding on a few ghost adventures, Kat Green was born.
Kat lived in a haunted house for too long. When things really heated up, she had several paranormal teams investigate, but things only got worse. When her mother suggested they contact a shaman, she agreed to come, saying she had been waiting for Kat’s call. The home was cleansed and sold. When she paired up with Rachel Green, the idea of co-writing a book with a paranormal real estate agent seemed perfect.
With their combined paranormal “experiences”, they decided to combine their creative mojo. That’s when Sloane Osborne, Paranormal Real Estate agent, and the HAUNTS FOR SALE series was born.
I got to meet Kat de Falla at the Badger State Author Event!
