Ghost is a quick and easy-to-read mystery/ghost story. Jess wakes up at the bottom of her stairs with blood on her head and hands and doesn’t remember falling. Her head injury is the obvious explanation for her memory loss and hallucinations … until she has to pick up after her hallucinations. Unable to remember what happened, she succumbs to the pounding headache and decides to take a nap in the living room in case she sleepwalked her way into the fall. Of course this is big no-no in Concussions 101, but what’s a single girl to do when the only company she seems to have is a ghost – a handsome ghost, but a ghost nonetheless. The mystery ramps up when she wakes at the base of the stairs, again bleeding from her head wound. Fortunately the headache is gone and she is more determined to suss out the events the led to her fall, memory loss, and sudden acquisition of a ghost.

Because this is a ghost story and there’s really only a couple of ways for it to go, the ending is mildly predictable. But as someone who reads romances banking on a happy ending more often than not, it’s the journey from the first page to the last that I enjoy and Ms. Alexander has delivered. Due to Jess’s memory loss and the gradual regaining of her memories, we “solve” the mystery along with her only gaining a step or two ahead because we get a peek into her ghost’s thoughts as well. I was satisfied with the resolution that followed Jess’s remembering what led to her fall and enjoyed the promise of romance Jess got at the very end. Ghost was an enjoyable and well-written short story and I look forward to checking out more of the author’s work.

I’m giving Ghost a rare half-star for a 3.5 star rating. It’s better than good (3 stars) but not quite to the I-really-liked-this-book 4-star rating. I don’t tend to give out half-stars because a book usually is or it isn’t, but Ms. Alexander has me straddling the ratings on this one.
