Loose Ends (Mary O’Reilly Paranormal Mystery #1) by Terri Reid
She is open to good criticism and trusts in positive thinking. God and His Plan run also as a thread throughout the series, and this is challenging for an author of paranormal stories. The Christian faith spread into the mix and the tale delivers a sense of values, like loyalty and family. She considers that they drive the reader to a roller coaster experience. Thirteen books in and the series may go on. Her Halloween feature in the local paper enjoyed popularity for many years.
Her collection of ghost stories told by local people belongs to the historical society as a fundraising platform. They are written because there is a story to be told, a life experience to be talked about. If you see one missing just send me an e-mail below. Book s. The guy is a master! More Details.

Mary O'Reilly was a Chicago police officer who was shot in the line of duty. She died but was resuscitated. Since that day she has been able to see the ghosts of people who have not crossed over. She decides to quit the police force and opens up a paranormal detective agency after moving to a small town. For the most part I liked this. I would give it 4 stars for the charm and humor, and the characters.
I really enjoyed her banter with the two other business owners that befriend her. I liked the potential love interest and the way they met. I also really liked that there wasn't just one mystery introduced in this book, but three. One of which I'm going to guess will not be as easily solved as the other two were in this book. It will probably span at least a couple of books before it's resolved. The things that I found to be shortcomings in this book, and what kept me from giving it 4 stars were first, the main mystery.
It was pretty obvious who did it and I was hoping it would end up being a red herring, but at one point in the middle of the book the author for some reason decides to just let us in on it completely. If I hadn't found the rest of the book so likable I would not have been able to overlook this as easily.
The second thing that sort of bothered me was that Mary did a couple of things that I thought a former cop wouldn't have done. One other time she is in someone's house and hears the garage door opening, so she knows they are home. Instead of exiting the house through the front door or some other door or window where they wouldn't be able to see her, she goes back down into the basement to exit through the patio doors, the basement is where the garage is located.
It's a self published series so I wasn't expecting perfection, and the books are short; this one was only around a 6 hour read. Sometimes that's what I need, a quick, light read that doesn't take itself too seriously and this fit the bill. Review also posted at Writings of a Reader But somehow author Terri Reid makes it work well enough. Decades later, Renee has begun haunting the Ryerson home in Galena, Ill. Despite its flaw, Loose Ends is perfect for when you want a mindless cozy with a sassy heroine with some interesting pals — both alive and dead.
That pretty much tells you what you want to know. Aug 12, Dehlia rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Anyone who likes a good mystery-thriller. I got this book for the same reason a lot of people did, it seems. It was cheap or in my case, temporarily free on Amazon. I usually won't bother with self-published books unless I know the author. However, this book really surprised me. A basic, non-spoilery run down is that our main heroine was shot in the line of duty as a police officer and died momentarily only to be brought back from the brink.

She also happened to bring back the ability to see and communicate with spirits with her. Now sh I got this book for the same reason a lot of people did, it seems. Now she works as an independent investigator, using her unique skills to solve crimes. This particular book involves the death of a young mistress of a politician in the s and how it links back to child abductions at the time.
All the while, Mary has a growing relationship with a local police chief. Mary as a character is strong-willed and sharp, with a sense of humor about her strange predicaments. The side characters are also fun to read about, and seem very true to life despite this being technically a paranormal book.
What more can I say? I thoroughly enjoyed the read, the mystery really had me hooked the entire time. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author. I am not usually one who's drawn to paranormal mysteries, however, after reading so many positive reviews about Terri Reid's Mary O'Reilly's series, I decided to give it a try, and boy oh boy, I was literally blown away by this book.
Mary O'Reilly, a Chicago cop, was shot during a stake-out gone bad. Later, surrounded by her family, she died in hospital, but she remained dead only for a few minutes.

She was sent back among the living with an added ability - the ability to see and speak to ghosts, especially those who have yet to resolve some issue before being able to move on and rest.
She decided to combine her cop qualities with her new ability and set up a private investigation business in the town of Freeport. Twenty four years ago, a young woman drowned in the swimming pool of the newly elected State Senator. It was ruled an accident and the case closed, but now, after all these years, the woman's ghost is haunting the senator and his wife who immediately call Mary for assistance. Mary discovers that the woman was actually murdered, but who is the killer?
What was the motive behind this young woman's murder? She also finds possible links between this murder and the disappearance of some young girls that also happened at that time. Mary finds herself being stalked by and running for her life from someone who's determined to stop her. Now that the old cases have been re-opened, the new police chief joins her in her investigation, but will they succeed in finding the murderer? Will the woman's ghost be able to move on? Will the missing girls' families finally find closure?
Nothing is as it seems.

Filled with richly described characters, action and haunting scenes, this was a very pleasurable read for me. The book contains some laugh-out-loud scenes, but also some tear-shedding ones.

That said, I don't think I would rate it higher than 3 stars.
I am very interested in Bradley's H missing wife Jeannine. Somewhat predictable - didn't quite have the edge of my seat suspense to rate higher. Aug 13, Ira rated it liked it Shelves: kindle-unlimited , mystery-thriller , suspense , ghost-in-it , paranormal. He was so damn obvious!!
