Broken Hearted Ghoul (Taxi for the Dead Paranormal Mystery #1) Joyce and Jim Lavene

It's been two years since Skye Mertz agreed to drive Abe's Taxi for the Dead, transporting his zombie workers back to the man who gave them an additional twenty years of life. She's raising her daughter, with the help of her ghostly mother-in-law, and keeps looking for what killed her husband the night she died.

Now she has a partner - a housewife working off her zombie husband's service - and she's met a sorcerer with amnesia. It shouldn't be surprising that a broken hearted ghoul, bent on getting revenge, should show up too. After all, there's no rest for the dead.

My review: Broken Hearted Ghoul by Joyce and Jim Lavene


Broken Hearted Ghoul is the first book in Taxi for the Dead Paranormal Mystery. I read the second book before first so some of the ending was not a mystery to me.  This is a cozy mystery with unique characters. Good drama, humor and action it is a good mix.

Skye Mertz is a zombie.  She agreed to drive a Taxi for the Dead for Abe for 20 years extra life.  Skye and her husband were police officers in New Orleans.  They were in a wreck and her husband died and she was critical. Skye was offered 20 extra years so she could raise her daughter all she has to do is quit being a police officer and work for Abe.

Skye lives in her mother-in-laws bed and breakfast with her daughter and the ghost of her mother-in-law.

Skye and her new partner pick up people whose 20 years are up and turn them in at funeral home.  Somebody is killing the zombies before there 20 years is up.  Ripping there hearts out.

The setting is outside of New Orleans.

I like this series and would read more of it.  I like Joyce and Jim Lavene mysteries.

I was given this ebook from the authors and in return I agreed to give a honest review of Broken Hearted Ghoul.
