Reviewed by Ankita Shukla for Readers' Favorite Naomi is the second book in the Maggie Trilogy by Mya O'Malley. The author has left breadcrumbs all over the book to help readers unfamiliar with her previous book not to feel left out of the plot. Naomi, the protagonist, after helping the souls of Maggie and Ryan to find peace, is finally breathing a sigh of relief. She is excited about her future with her fiance, Bryce, and his adorable daughter, Holly. However, the paranormal beings are not done with her yet. The ghost of her ex-boyfriend (Nick), who was no angel when he was alive, has crawled into her life apparently with the sole purpose of tormenting her. Although Nick is throwing her around (literally), filling her mind with the most disturbing images and thoughts, Naomi is sure that his being here is an indication that he wishes to seek closure with his death. Perhaps Nick did not die behind bars due to "drug overdose." Instead, there was foul play that resulted in his death. If Naomi can solve the mystery behind his death, Nick just might leave her alone. Naomi by Mya O'Malley is a beautiful fusion of the paranormal and thriller genres. Both the genres are well executed and are amusingly intriguing. Romance is definitely at the foundation of the book and it makes its appearance to switch the mood from dark to light and from melancholy to serene. The primary element of the book remains the paranormal, and the discussion among the characters regarding life after death is thought provoking. The author has done a marvelous job of writing paranormal fiction filled with various realistic characters, conversations, and emotions. Bryce's conflicting emotions between being with his fiancee and protecting his child by keeping her away from Naomi are as real as it gets. The way Naomi became enveloped in an ever-consuming paranoia is another example of how much effort the author has put into writing this engaging book. I would recommend this to readers who enjoy a perfect blend of the romance, paranormal, and thriller genres.
