**** Review of Waking up Dead By Margo Bond Collins ****
This is not my usual read, but I was asked to give it a read. I am so lad I did.
this is not a romance but a sifi. This book is about Callie and she died
( a quite horrific death at that) and is now a ghost but she did not wake up
at her hometown but Alabama. She flits around town then she decides to
stay with Rick and Molly even though they can not see her. then one night
a man kills Molly and Rick is blamed for it now Callie has to find help,
she needs someone who can see and talk to her without freaking out.
She Finally finds one then they deiced to investigate the murder together
and prove Rick did not do it. I hope there are going to be more books
I can say I am hooked and want to read more.
I hope you enjoy this book as Much as I did.

She expected heaven or hell. She got Alabama.
When Dallas resident Callie Taylor died young, she expected
to go to heaven, or maybe hell. Instead, when she met her
fate early thanks to a creep with a knife and a mommy
complex, she went to Alabama. Now she's witnessed another
murder, and she's not about to let this one go.
She's determined to help solve it before an innocent man
goes to prison. And to answer the biggest question of all:
why the hell did she wake up dead in Alabama?
When I died, I expected to go to heaven.
Okay. Maybe hell. It’s not like I was perfect or anything.
But I was sort of hoping for heaven.
Instead, I went to Alabama.
Yeah. I know. It’s weird.
I died in Dallas, my hometown. I was killed, actually.
Murdered. I’ll spare you the gruesome details. I don’t like to
remember them myself. Some jerk with a knife--and
probably a Bad-Mommy complex. Believe me, if I knew
where he was, I’d go haunt his ass.
At any rate, by the time death came, I was ready for it--ready
to stop hurting, ready to let go. I didn’t even fight it.
And then I woke up dead in Alabama. Talk about pissed off.
You know, even reincarnation would have been fine with
me--I could have started over, clean slate and all that.
Human, cow, bug. Whatever. But no. I ended up haunting
someplace I’d never even been.
That’s not the way it’s supposed to work, right? Ghosts are
supposed to be the tortured spirits of those who cannot let go
of their earthly existence. If they could be convinced to follow
the light, they’d leave behind said earthly existence and quit
scaring the bejesus out of the poor folks who run across
them. That’s what all those “ghost hunter”
shows on television tell us.
Let me tell you something.
The living don’t know jack about the dead.
Not this dead chick, anyway.
