Poor Little Ghoul
Paranormal investigators Brett and Liz find themselves back in over their heads when a forest hunt for a roadkill-eating creature offers up a little surprise. Back home with their ghoulish house guest, it becomes clear there’s more to this investigation than either of them thought. Worse than that, Brett's own fate is linked to the little ghoul's.
So it's back out on the road, with plenty of time for pit stops with a greedy ex, a convention of ghost hunters, partying with fake vampires, and even drinking and fighting alongside good ole Uncle Gonzo. But as the investigation goes deeper, and unseen connections come to light, Brett finds there’s much more at stake than getting through a rough patch with Liz.
A rescue mission. A race for a cure. New friends and old adversaries. Unbreakable bonds and supernatural danger. It’s going to be a wild ride. Can the friends save the nearly undead tween? Can she and Brett stop themselves from ...Sinking Down?

It’s been months since Brett moved to be with Liz and still no work. Not much call for paranormal investigators at the moment. When Liz and Brett hear of a creature, maybe a chupacabra, being seen in the woods, they pack up their camera and camping gear and set off to see what’s really out there. Who should show up but Larry, Liz’s cyber-stalking ex- boyfriend. When they manage to get photos of the creature, Larry steals the camera. Liz isn’t worried though, she has the sim card. It turns out it’s not a chupacabra. It looks like a gray-skinned little girl with weird yellow eyes. She stinks of death and munches on road kill. Of course, Liz gains it trust and brings it home. After a hot bath and plenty of scrubbing, a little girl emerges. She’s still grey-skinned and unbreathing, but she smells a whole lot better. Now Liz is determined to find out who Ashleigh (the name she gave the creature) is, why she’s a ghoul, and how to undo it. And once again things point to Brett. It’s time for another road trip and the gangs all here. As the book description tells you, there’s a whole lot of other things happening in this second book. The gathering of ghost hunters was fun to read. All sorts of weird. And Uncle Gonzo is good for mixing it up and providing the next day hangovers. But my favorite part was the little ghoul, Ashleigh. She didn’t ask for what happened to her. And Liz was awesome to take her in. I don’t know if I could have. The author’s description made me feel sorry for her, but Ashleigh also creeped me out. Then, as surely as a hot bath washed away the stink and filth, that little ghoul stole my heart. I’d do whatever needed doing to help her and that’s what this story is about. Hop in Soccer Mom (Gonzo’s van) and join the gang on their latest road trip. The supernatural is happening and danger is just around the bend. I received this book for my honest and unbiased review.
From a perfect start—“Oh Yuck! Sweetie, did we really have to bring our own road kill?”—through road trip and camping terrors with ghosts; to a middle that’s filled with a very scary sense of time running out for the protagonists; to an ending that’s got to be perfect in every way; Eric Garrison’s Sinking Down will leave you sunk in your favorite armchair unwilling to move till the story’s done. There’s mystery, suspense, good guys, bad guys and some curious in-betweens, great friendships, convincing relationships... plus, possibly, a ghoul or demon or ghost, or two. Add a touch of possession, ghost-hunting with a few dabs of of Wiccan, and some thoroughly intriguing musings on soul, self and the holes we leave in our lives, and you’ll be ready for a road trip in a van called Soccer Mom. This series goes from good to still good to “When’s the next one coming out?” and these characters are perfect to hang out with. The author’s voice is convincing, smooth and clear. The dialog’s strong and natural. The adventure is cool and scary. And the novel’s punctuated with seriously evocative illustrations from Bonnie Wasson. What more could you want? Disclosure: I hosted the author in a blog tour and was delighted to be given a free copy of this second book, to which I offer my honest review.
