Review: Dead Man and the Restless Spirits (Dead Man #1) by Lou Harper
Dying sucks hairy monkey balls, even when you're not the stiff.
Denton Mills has a secret: he can see dead people. Or rather, how they died. It's quite a drag in a city like Chicago, teeming with the echoes of the no-longer living. Rather than whine about it, Denton has learned to live with his troublesome talent. His adaptability comes in handy when he meets his enigmatic new neighbor.
Bran Maurell catches Denton's eye right away, but unfortunately Mr. Tall, Dark, and Mysterious is as standoffish as he is alluring. However, after an unexpected introduction from Bran's cat brings the two men together, Denton discovers they have a mutual interest in the spirit world. Herbalist by day, Bran moonlights as a witch, performing house cleansings for a fee.
From Bran, Denton learns that his knack for interacting with the dead qualifies him as a necromancer. It makes good business sense for them to team up and rid Chicago of its pesky spirits one grateful client at a time. Amongst ghostly adventures the attraction between the men is impossible to ignore. They seem like perfect partners—unless Bran's not-so-little secret comes between them.
Warning: men loving men, ghosts with attitudes, and a portly feline with hidden talents.
**I received this book free for review from the author through the DBML (Don't Buy My Love) program in the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads. **
This was a fantastic start to the series! I loved Denton and Bran! Denton can see ghosts and there is definitely something to his new neighbor. Bran is distant and standoffish, but he is also smokin' hot!
The little twist in the story line really drew me in and I loved it! I think that Lou Harper has definitely hit on something that is unique, at least in my experience and I can not wait to read more of the series.
