Nicki Styx experiences death for a brief time and walks away with a new ability. Unfortunately it’s an ability that is causing her more trouble than she ever could have dreamed of when the dead decide she’s there to help. Forced into helping what appears to Nicki to be an evil spirit of a former friend, she finds herself being drawn further into the world of voodoo. If she doesn’t do as it asks or figure a way to rid herself of the duppy, it will go after those she loves and come back for her when it’s through.

Dr. Joe Bascombe tried to bring Nicki back when her heart stopped, but it wasn’t really his hand that did the job. Drawn to Nicki on many levels, Joe wants more than just a casual doctor and patient relationship with her. Intrigued by near death experiences, he asks Nicki to participate in a study that would enable him to spend more time with her. Genuinely concerned about her bizarre actions Joe keeps her close, but he’s keeping a few secrets from Nicki that could shock her more than seeing dead people has.

Dead Girls Are Easy is a slightly dark and delightfully entertaining paranormal. Nicki is witty, feisty and an all around enjoyable character to spend time with. Ms. Garey starts off her new paranormal series with a well-built world and a wonderfully diverse cast of characters. The intriguing storyline has quick action with sweet romance, and will leave readers anxiously awaiting Nicki’s next contact with the other side.
