Book Review: Revenge Served Cold by Jackie Fullerton

Kathy Spence awakens in the middle of the night and finds herself in a living nightmare. Her husband has been run down and she is the primary suspect. With an eyewitness to the crime and proof that her car was the murder weapon, it appears to be an open and shut case. Terrified for her future, Kathy turns to amateur sleuth Anne Marshall for help. Believing in Kathy's innocence, Anne launches her own investigation, uncovering proof of a conspiracy that reaches from Kathy's past and threatens her own life. In a race against time, Anne must count on her close friends and even the ghost of her father to help her bring a killer to justice before it is too late.

Review (Guest Post by Caleb M.):
Since Kelli doesn’t read ghost stories and Natalie didn’t like the cover... I was designated to give this book a try because I like ghosts, zombies, and really anything scary. I read 100 pages of Revenge Served Cold, along with other random pages (including the ending) and had to stop. The book was... meh, nothing great, and I could barely keep my eyes open while reading it.

What mainly killed this book for me was the main character Anne and her dead father’s ghost who helps her solve criminal cases all while attending law school. The main threat in this book is for a friend of a friend, Kathy who is accused of murdering her husband. It was Kathy’s car that ran down her husband, Elliot, and she needs the help of Anne and her friend Shirley to prove her innocence. Together, Anne and Shirley (also with the help of the awesome ghost dad (who “breathed a sigh”...what???) try to prove Kathy’s innocence. There isn’t really much more I can say about this book. The plot was just too bland and predictable for my liking. From what I read, there wasn’t really anything inappropriate in this book. So it is suitable for younger audiences, if they are wanting a ghostly read. So my rating of the 100 pages that I read was meh, 1 star.
Just One Gripe:
The plot was too bland.

The Best Thing About This Book:
I liked the ghost dad!

Appropriate for a younger audience:
