Book Blurb:

My name is Amelia Gray.

I am the Graveyard Queen, a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. My father passed down four rules to keep me safe and I’ve broken every last one. A door has opened and evil wants me back.

In order to protect myself, I’ve vowed to return to those rules. But the ghost of a murdered cop needs my help to find his killer. The clues lead me to the dark side of Charleston—where witchcraft, root doctors and black magic still flourish—and back to John Devlin, a haunted police detective I should only love from afar. Now I’m faced with a terrible choice: follow the rules or follow my heart.

Book Blurb:

Deep in the shadowy foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains lies a dying town……

My name is Amelia Gray. They call me The Graveyard Queen. I’ve been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but I’m coming to think I have another purpose here. Why is there a cemetery at the bottom of Bell Lake? Why am I drawn time and again to a hidden grave I’ve discovered in the woods? Something is eating away at the soul of this town—this withering kingdom—and it will only be restored if I can uncover the truth.

My Thoughts:

Atmospheric. Intense. Those are two words that keep coming to mind when I think about this book, a combination of quiet horror and lingering suspense. The Kingdom by Amanda …

Advent Calendar Day 23: The Restorer by Amanda Stevens + Giveaway

Welcome to the 23rd day of Book Lovers Inc Advent Calendar. Each day we will offer you one great read in a giveaway on all 24 days till Christmas.

Today, allow me to tell you a bit about a book by author Amanda Stevens: The Restorer. When I read the intriguing book description earlier this year, little did I know it’d end up being one of my absolutely favorite books of 2011. Sure, I was creeped out by the ghosty tale…but I loved every minute of it. The best way to describe this book is “atmospheric.” The language used to describe the environments, the dialogue, the emotions within the protagonist…it’s exquisite. This tale, about a woman who can (unfortunately for her) see spirits, has got mystery, the paranormal, and traces of romance. You will undoubtedly be struck by it long after you finish reading it. This book is the …
