DEAD[ish] (DEAD[ish] #1)DEAD[ish] by Naomi Kramer
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Meet Linda, she’s had a very bad day. First her boyfriend killed her, and then she woke up as a ghost with a strong determination to find her body. Her now ex-boyfriend, Mike, won’t tell her what he did with it so she torments him in an attempt to force the information out of him. Enter Trent, the P.I. (private investigator) she hires to find her body. Posing at as an exorcist, Trent gets hired by Mike and begins to investigate but quickly discovers that getting to the truth may be harder and more dangerous than he thought.

I find myself on the fence with regards to what I think of this one. I feel like the story has the potential to be very entertaining. The author does a great job of bringing to life the inventive torments of a woman scorned. However, the excessive use of profanity (the f*** word) did more to detract from the story than accentuate any strong feelings.

Although I am curious to see what happens with the characters later in the series, I am unsure if I can overlook the language enough to continue reading the series.

NOTE: This is not a book suitable for younger readers.
