Michelle Scott, urban fantasy author

I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance! Although I'm not too keen on books that are overly sexy, I don't mind a little heat if it goes along with the story. At the same time, I'll read pretty much anything from classic novels to contemporary fiction.

My Dead Boyfriend - Barbara Rose This cute story, which is more of a novella than an actual novel, tells the story of a young girl named Allison who gets some very special gifts for her sixteenth birthday: a strange ring from her grandfather, a threatening message from a spirit, and a visit from her dead boyfriend.

The characters are fun. I often found myself smiling at Allison's inner dialogue, and I enjoyed her relationship with her dead brother and her boyfriend. The fairy element was also a hit. This book definitely is different from the vamp/were stories out there.

On the downside, the plot wasn't as developed as I would have liked. At times, the story dragged while at other places, it jumped too quickly. I think the book would have worked better if the author had taken more time with it. Also, although the book was well-proofed overall, there were some significant verb tense errors.

Overall, My Dead Boyfriend is quick, fun read.
