RAISING THE DEAD by Mara Purnhagen

As the daughter of the famous Silver Spirits paranormal investigators, Charlotte Silver is used to all things weird. But when coffins start floating down her street during a flood, life turns extra strange. And wonderful, when her friend and crush Noah signs on to help Charlotte and her folks in the aftermath. Cemetery cleanup might not sound exciting, but as shocking discoveries and a lurking stranger come to light, Charlotte learns that sometimes, raising the dead can bring unexpected rewards.

Well, because I absolutely loved the the first book in this series, I just had to read the novella that fits between the first and second Past Midnight books. :)

Several weeks after what happened in Past Midnight, Charlotte is helping her father during one of his lectures, only to find that when it's over, a huge storm has hit the town. So much rain falls that there are floods, and with those floods come roaming coffins. Of course, her parents are instantly drawn to the case. The strange thing is that for once, Charlotte is too. And after some advice from her sister, she decides to help them right what's happened.

Of course, the fact that she gets to spend time with her crush, Noah, is an added bonus. If only he would give her a hint about whether he feels the same way about her or not... either way, Charlotte is once again caught up in something strange and very creepy. As they help an old man who had no idea what he'd been guarding for so many years.

Wow, what an awesome novella. I loved it! I really like Charlotte, her family, friends, and this world she's trying to stay away from but just can't seem to shake. Now I can't wait to get my hands on the second book, which will hopefully arrive in a few weeks. :)

By the way, you can get yourself a free Kindle copy (but only if you're in the U.S.) or the free eBook copy from Harlequin (which is what I downloaded). :)
