Dead Man Talking by Jana DeLeon

Welcome to Everlasting, Maine, where there's no such thing as normal.

Meteorologist Zoe Parker put Everlasting in her rearview mirror as soon as she had her college degree in hand. But when Sapphire, her eccentric great-aunt, takes a tumble down the stairs in her lighthouse home, Zoe returns to the tiny fishing hamlet to look after her. Zoe has barely crossed the county line when strange things start happening with the weather, and she discovers Sapphire's fall was no accident. Someone is searching the lighthouse but Sapphire has no idea what they're looking for. Determined to ensure her aunt's ongoing safety, Zoe promises to expose the intruders, even though it means staying in Everlasting and confronting the past she thought she'd put behind her.

Dane Stanton never expected to see Zoe standing in the middle of her aunt's living room, and was even more unprepared for the flood of emotion he experiences when coming face to face with his old flame. Zoe is just as independent and determined as he remembered, and Dane knows she won't rest until Sapphire can return to the lighthouse in peace, so he offers to help her sort things out.

Armed with old legends, Sapphire's ten cats, and a talking ghost, Zoe has to reconcile her feelings for Dane and embrace her destiny before it's too late.

The main character is zoe she is a meteorologist that after college headed out for the lights of the big city. When her aunt gets hurt she comes back home to help and that when things get crazy and the mystery starta with a little town of everlasting. Highly enjoyable read. I live the characters. First time readin a book for this author and it was a lot of fun. Can't wait for the next book! Voluntarily reviewed a copy of the book and I honestly loved it

It was witty and well written. I read this book because one of my favorite authors wrote a companion book in this series. I am always looking for new authors and I am very excited about this new find. I can’t wait to read more, both in the series and from this author.

A little predictable, but overall very enjoyable. Cozy, paranormal mystery with just a hint of romance.

I LOVED this book! Jana can always write a good tale. I laughed so hard I cried. If nothing else, read it for the cats. Plus the ghost with no pants. The characters are all so well written. It was bittersweet for it to end because I already miss the people and the magic. I hope we get another book from her set in Everlasting

What’s wrong with a little magic? 5 MAGIC STONES So is anyone going to tell me the story? Come on! It will be an adventure. Another glorious day in Everlasting. Live Woman Reading! *snicker* Good Lord Almighty. I can't remember the last time I laughed so much while reading a book! Of course, this is my first time reading a cozy paranormal mystery and also my first Jana DeLeon book as well, but still! I love, Love, LOVE every word of it! So many witty, sarcastic, humorous & outright hilarious lines & phrases! Add in the terrific storylines, eloquent storytelling, family, friends, hot exes, weirdness, potty-trained cats, romance & one mysterious mystery all coming perfectly together, making this one helluva fantastically written & well-rounded book that I couldn't put down! I literally read it all in one sitting! The "complex" characters are highly entertaining, loveable, but cooky, quirky Sapphire is downright adorable! She cracks me right up! I wish I had a great-aunt/aunt/grandma like her. Of course I also wish I had a Dane in my life too, but for a whole other reason! wink I am excited to read the rest of this series, and even more excited to get my hands on more of Jana’s books!!! Her incredible way with words, the ability to capture me from the very beginning and not only keep me entertained, but laughing, gasping, holding my breath, rooting for the good “guys”, cursing the bad, adoring the senior crowd, and wishing I could live in Everlasting, Maine in a beautifully awesome lighthouse, proves that Jana’s got game! Errrr… I mean talent! Jana’s got talent! Puuurrrnomenal talent at that! This is truly a highly charming, funny, FANTASTIC book that will always be Happily Everlasting on my bookshelf and in my heart! Cheesy, I know, but true! Oh so true!! Everlasting proving once again that truth was stranger than fiction.

Everlasting was home. Zoe wanted more. She left with no intention of returning, at least until she'd made it big in the big city world. When her aunt fell she was on her way, promotion at stake or not. She was the last of her family and the most important thing. Then she found that Dane was going to be at the lighthouse, her home, remodeling. The man she'd left behind and never forgotten. Everlasting is magic. Something else Zoe had not forgotten, just put on hold in her mind--until--the resident ghost began having conversations with her. Between Dane, the ghost, cats (lots of cats), and herself they worry that the fall was no accident. The investigation keeps them together leading them to a history few know about. Danger, love, family, and magic. What more could any reader want? This is a fun read, with action and characters you won't forget. Who could forget a talking ghost without his...oopps you need to read to find out. I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.
