“She was the only creature in the world who would really care if something happened to me, even if it was only because I was the bringer of kibble.” Sylvie in The Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Final Verdict: A paranormal romance lacking enough “paranormal” and a “romance” to make a great book.

“Emery cut in impatiently, ‘For crying out loud. Who do you think you are, Nancy Drew?’ ‘Hey,’ I snapped, because no one sniped at my sister but me, and Mark echoed with a stern ‘Chill, dude.’ Phin was unperturbed. ‘Those books were highly unrealistic. Do you have any idea how much brain damage a person would have if she were hit on the head and drugged with chloroform that often?’” Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Final Verdict: If you like the Nancy Drew, you’ll enjoy Texas Gothic. Think of Amy as the modern day Nancy Drew, but where the mysteries include actual ghosts!
Book Title: Spirit and Dust (Goodnight Family #2) Author: Rosemary Clement-Moore “It didn’t matter, because he was an employee of a criminal enterprise and I was an FBI consultant and, oh yeah, technically kidnapped and probably in the throes of some kind of Stockholm syndrome.” Daisy Goodnight, Spirit and Dust by Rosemary Cement-Moore
Final Verdict: Overall, an enjoyable paranormal mystery. The paranormal world and characters are interesting and are what make this book enjoyable. The mystery, however, may leave you disappointed in the end.
