I was thrilled to find that The Ghost and the Graveyard is part of a series. After finishing this novel, which is a fast-paced, sensual, well-crafted piece, I was anxious to read on and continue the vicarious adventure of Grateful, her sexy ghost and the mysteries that lurk behind the graveyard gates. This novel is definately intended for mature audiences only. As such, I found myself carving out some reading time and wanting to pretend I was in college again so I could pull and all-nighter to stay up and read. Character development is top notch, as well as the underlying story which unfolds chapter by chapter and keeps the reader completely engaged and thirsty for the next scene, and the next, and the other after that!!! Now I anxiously await book #2. Well done!

I never know what I'm getting when reading a free book, horrible story lines, silly characters, disgusting spelling and grammer mistakes, the list goes on and on. This book didn't have any of the above, the story line was original, the characters likable and it was well written. I probably saw one or two editing mistakes. All in all I enjoyed reading this author's work, the story was filled with enough background information on each character so as to not confuse the reader but give us a good handle on what's going on. Grateful's character was a tad bit annoying with her indecisiveness and cranky attitude but overall a likable heroin. Ghosts, zombies, demons, vampires and all kinds of creatures that go 'bump' in the night, enough sexual tension to get you sweating and great intimate scenes to make the reader fan him/herself...whoosh....what more can a great paranormal romance book ask for? I will definitely be reading the next book in this series, can't wait to see what happens with Logan and how that will affect Grateful's new 'job' and relationship with the sexy caretaker, Rick. SR

The beautifully bewitching cover is what originally drew me to this debut novel by Genevieve Jack, then the enticing draw of the series name: The Monk's Hill Witch. But a few pages into this book, I was hooked till the end. Grateful is one of those heroines you cheer for as she faces the odd possibility of falling in love with not only a ghost but also a sexy shapeshifting guardian of the cemetery who knows exactly how to love her. As the story progresses you find out the secret behind these "men," and just where Grateful fits in, and that it was her destiny to come to this point in her life and make this decision. Intriguing, entertaining, funny, hot, sexy and scary. It's got a little bit for everyone! My only disappointment is having to wait for Book 2!

Almost gave up on the book when she couldn't seem to get past the wine, dramatics, and daddy, also the attitude that because she is blonde and has boobs she is supposed to act this way, really?? Let's get drunk and screw attitude from the get go - but the short book finally turned into a paranormal story with some substance (even with the constant indecision about everything in her life) in the last chapters. For ADULTS only - ignore the moron that rated this for 9 - 16 ages.

Haunting and Sexy Grateful Knight should thank her weasel of an ex-boyfriend. If he wasn't such a jerk, she'd never have met the oh-so-charming Logan the ghost or the oh-so-sexy Rick the caretaker. Admittedly, she's got to deal with life-and-death issues in the land of the undead, but with a cemetery in your backyard, what do you expect? I loved this book. It has thrills, chills, a nice touch of humor, and a HOT romance. That's not fog wafting through the graveyard--it's steam!

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and had multiple levels. Based on what we learn about Grateful before this story starts she really grows as a character as well over the course of the story and begins to learn what she is, what she wants and needs. The story moves along at a good pace, without feeling rushed. Things happen as they should. Its hard to say a lot about what does occur as it can easily contain spoilers. Everything is essential to the story and its conculsion. The writing was really good and easy to read. The author knows how to weave a plot and setting together to pull you into the story. I am looking forward to checking out more of her books.

This is a free, paranormal book. It has 236 pages and is very well edited. It is also really bloody and violent. There is every kind of creature you can imagine, that goes bump in the night. They all seem to bite, slash, chew, claw and kill, including the ghosts. There is an awful lot of very detailed sex, including oral sex, so be forewarned. This is not a book for a person with a weak stomach or nerves, nor anyone with an aversion to reading about extreme sexual situations involving drinking each others blood as well as other kinky stuff. There is some cursing and romance, but it is not romance as mere mortals know it. The plot is okay. I had never heard of a caretaker before, so that was interesting. There is some humor and no religion. There is a hairy dragon with an hunger for zombies. EWWWWW. The characters were all interesting and strange. This is the first book of a series. The second book costs $2.99. The title is "KICK THE CANDLE." I do not know if it is worth it or not, as I do not intend to purchase it. A third book has not been released yet, if there will be one. This for readers 18 and up. AD

Great read, similar to sookie stackhouse novels with some humor thrown in. Could not put it down.

You have a 22 year old nurse killing bad guys, breaking hospital rules, drinking copious amounts of alcohol, engaging in unprotected sex and also blood drinking by the way. She eats junk food to get through her shift and is romancing a cooking man ghost and a man dragon. I like fiction but this was too much.

*slight spoiler alert* I really liked this one. The story was fast paced and interesting for the most part. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars rather than 5 is because of one particular scene in the middle... I don't want to give the story away, but I will just say that she's supposed to be in a hurry so save someone but instead of rushing she's prancing around in a cape living out some strange sexual fantasy. Its a little unbelievable.

This book had the frame work to have been better. The main character with a ridiculous first name... can't keep it in her pants. She gets dumped by her ex after he takes all her money. She moves into a house her realtor father can't seem to sell. The first night she's there shes hooking up with the neighbor across the street, then with the ghost that she finds out is living her attic...? That was a stretch for me. There was no building a relationship with Rick who seems very devoted to her based on her past lives and she seems to return to him for the sex not a relationship with someone that harbors half her soul. There's no meaningful relationship on Grateful's end, but from reading you see Rick truly cares for her. The third strike was the fact that she's a serious whiner not wanting to rise to her duties as the Monk's Hill witch. Letting weeks pass not making any choice on what responsibility was laid before her. The author depicts her as an idiot blonde that has no depth to her, she is what she is at face value. The series I've enjoyed had a strong female lead not an idiot that sleeps around and has had 10 boyfriends? She's only 22, and she mentions that they were all meaningful, but didn't last over a year. That statement was in itself stupid when I read it. I'm reading the second book in hopes the main character grows into her duty as the witch. The only reason I'm giving it a chance is that I am between reads waiting for another series to be released in the upcoming weeks... Overall, pretty bleak...

The graveyard is a portal for vampires, zombies, ghouls and demons. Grateful has just moved into the house next door, which comes complete with ghosts. Prudence is one ghost. She inhabits the attic, is occassionally cold and violent, but is also key to understanding who Grateful is and why she has moved to this house. Logan is another ghost, who knows which wine goes with salmon, makes her coffee and breakfast, cleans the house, but may be trapped here. He warns her away from the caretaker - the hot hunk to whom she has an immediate strong attraction, but the caretaker is much, much more than he seems. Filled with an immortal, an eternal, insights into love and relationships, responsibility, old history of 1600's witch trials, and understanding of the cost to eternally balance good and evil, but in a cleverly crafted paranormal world. This is an intriguing adventure-suspense-romance, that was free on Nook. Definitely worth reading, this is a promising start to an interesting series. Set aside your credibility and just enjoy.

This book is incredible. It kept my interest from beginning to end. As soon as I finished it I had to get the next book immediately. Please, Genevieve, we need another book!!! The protagonist is strong and funny with many unexpected twists and turns throughout the book.

This book is amazing. It really shows how naive us as people are to believe that vampires, demons, zombies, and anything like them are good things. These creatures are obviously evil no matter what you make them out to be avoid them. This is a very good book though it hits hard on finding yourself, staying true to who you are, and discovering everything you could ever be. It is a story of turmoil, love, lust, and confusion. BEWARE IF YOU DO NOT LIKE SEXUAL CONTENT!!!

Grateful (yeah, that’s her name) has just moved into an old house with a backyard…of tombstones. Her new neighbor lives up the road and happens to be the caretaker. Oh, and he also happens to be drop-dead gorgeous. So, living next to a hottie and dead people? Eh, not so bad. Strange things keep happening in that house though. Was it haunted? A call asking Grateful if she’s the sorter. A what? Sorter? Soon, she starts talking to the ghost of the house and realizes that he seems harmless. Dare I say that she was even falling for the ghost? But who could she trust: the ghost or the caretaker? And what does her birth and mother have to do with any of it? And why was the caretaker feeding her sexual subliminal messages? This was an interesting mystery, and the reader savors each tantalizing truth. She was the Monk Hills Witch—sorter of the dead and fighter against the unholy. Cool! I liked how relatable Grateful was and that she wasn’t so quick to believe all this mumbo-jumbo. She was fast and witty.

The ghost or the graveyard….make a choice….what?! So I am not gonna lie. I picked this book up solely because of it’s cover. What can I say, it just yelled “read me!”. So, without reading the synopsis I jumped right in. Grateful is our main character. Like most/some women at 22 years old she had her run in with some not so great relationships. The last one has done her in. To get out of financial debt she moves to this little town and is going to stay in the house behind the graveyard until her father is able to sell it. As she stays in the house she finds herself smitten with the caretaker of the graveyard but then also has a ghostly friend in her home as well. As she is forming friendships with these two she is faced with a truth that blows her mind. I actually never saw this twist coming and bravo to the author as I was completely surprised by the twist. As Grateful is trying to get her life figured out a past life is constantly throwing curve balls her way. There are many supernatural creatures in this story and one in particular I am super excited for you to meet. I under no circumstances want to give the story away but it is sooooo much more than the synopsis. It is super witty, lots of sass, and some hawtness!!! As I was reading I could picture the house in my mind, I could picture the graveyard, and best of all I could picture all of the facial expressions Grateful was giving everyone!

This is my second reading of the book and I am pretty sure that my opinion of it has not really changed over the intervening 3 or so years. It is a frustrating book in so many ways but one that somehow makes me keep reading. So, why re-read? The simple answer is I got the 3rd and 4th books in the series and it is so long since I read the first 2 I thought I'd better start from scratch again. The most enjoyable bits of the story are definitely the supernatural elements. Grateful's horror at finding ghosts inhabit her new home is actually quite funny in the way it is handled and her grudging acceptance of them turning to friendship is quite charming. Sadly this is spoilt by an "indecent encounter" with one of them. We then have the Buffy-esque Hellmouth in the local cemetery which is home to all sorts of supernatural critter; basically if you can think of one then it lives in there and is trying to break through in to the Human world. Grateful's first experience of the nighttime cemetery is suitable bloody and panic fuelled, sadly her first daytime experience was spoilt by an "indecent encounter" with the caretaker. The ghosts in her attic and the caretaker of the cemetery are convinced Grateful is the reincarnation of the Monks Hill Witch and that she needs to call upon her power to keep the world, well their small American portion of it, free from all things the go bump in the night. This is quite an interesting tangent to go down and the discovery of a large spellbook - spelltome would be more accurate from the descriptions - and a bone sword seem to support this. The only problem is Grateful needs to decide now if she wants the power as her closest friend is at risk from the Hellmouth occupants. The tension builds up quite nicely and then is spoilt by an "indecent encounter" being necessary in the ritual to take back her power. Are we getting the hint that there are a lot of "indecent encounters" in this book? There are a lot of them and some do seem to develop naturally from the situation that Genevieve finds herself in, these I can forgive. Others seem to come at moments where the author has painted herself into a plot device corner and her only way out of it is to distract the characters and the readers with some carnality. I call this the Laurell K Hamilton school of writing. The actual supernatural beings and plot are quite good but seem to take forever to unfurl as we keep going doing down side routes that appear to have little to do with the tale. I am certain that as this is the first book of a series that they are there for reasons yet to be revealed. Generally the book is a bit hit and miss and very patchy. However, there is enough going for it that I am interested in finding out what happens next - as evidenced by the fact I have purchased the first 4 books in the series - hope I don't regret that!

It was decent enough for a free read. I enjoyed the premise of the story, but unfortunately the story was merely a way of connecting the sexual excapades.
