This is a terrific, sometimes funny, sometimes terrifying book,
and I recommend it to any fan of urban fantasy, supernatural,
or just plain good writing out there.

Warning Signs is a well told cautionary tale packed with the
kinds of experiences that parapsychologists love to investigate.

Kellan didn’t really intend to go to a séance, but it was hard to get out of it once her friend had brought her there. Besides, the experience might give her a story to ease her writer’s block. But Kellan and her friend both get more than they expect when they ignore these warning signs. This “spirit virgin” finds herself “typing at a rate of speed she’d never known herself capable” while a dead young man insists on invading her dreams. Meanwhile a film crew investigate life after death, and two storylines are set to converge. In a small town where church-goers, and especially Kellan’s boyfriends’ mother, really don’t approve of the paranormal, Kellan’s growing insistence on the reality of what she’s seen, and the need to do something about it, soon leave her ostracized and alone. Author Sheila Englehart handles the conflict deftly and honorably, with pleasing quiet humor, touches of honest faith and doubt, and great characters with genuine concern for each other. The plot’s intriguing. The lifestyles of TV host and house-cleaner are equally convincingly portrayed. And the story’s an enjoyable blend of urban fantasy with very thought-provoking real-world “warning signs.” Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get a free ecopy of this novel and I’m just sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it.

Amusing characters, provocative concept, fast paced story-telling. Warning Signs has it all. It also offers a new and refreshing twist on the "I See Dead People" theme. This intriguing story introduces the reader to the provocative concept of "gatekeepers for the dead". Like Kellan, the heroine, the reader is taken on a world-wind ride through the spiritual world of communicating with the dead and passing on messages from the dead back to the living. Two journeys. Two paths. Both destined to intersect somewhere on the road to self-awareness. By the time the two paths collide, a brother's message has been delivered and the heroine has come to terms with her role as a gatekeeper for the dead. A must read!
