Reporter Gera Stapleton has a difficult choice to make: write the story of a lifetime or save the legacy of a town—and a man—she has come to love. Assigned to a piece in Jerome, Arizona about a once-friendly ghost gone on a crime spree, Gera stumbles upon an amazing tale of greed, deception, and family honor—and murder. When the killer targets her as the next victim, an unlikely savior comes to her rescue. Smart dialogue, plenty of action, and a touch of the supernatural make this a must-read novel.

"Becki Willis blends bits of history with bits of fancy and weaves a tantalizing tale you won't soon forget."

HALL WAYS REVIEW: From the very beginning, I knew I would enjoy author Becki Willis's writing style. In Tangible Spirits, she puts readers straight into the setting and into the head of our main character, Gera, who is clearly unhappy with her latest reporting assignment. Willis uses snippets of thought and sentences that fit perfectly with the way a reporter's mind would collect details. I also love the parallels drawn between the changing scenery and Gera's changing mood. As her surroundings provoke memories, Gera softens once she allows them to come. It's an excellent vehicle for readers to get some insight into Gera's past.

"Life was simply too precious to discard
with the cessation of breath."

One of the things that piqued my interest when I first saw Tangible Spirits (in addition to the FABULOUS book cover) was the paranormal element. Gera is a skeptic, and readers will enjoy her logic and challenges to the thinking of the people in this allegedly haunted small town.  It's fun to piggy-back on her experiences on the ghost tours and semi-creepy encounters and draw your own conclusions. Even though readers are likely to figure things out faster than Gera does, it doesn't really take away from the unfolding of the fascinating multiple storylines and sprinkling of history that enrich the story. Beware the ends of chapters because you won't be able to stop reading there. The hooks! The cliffhangers!

Tangible Spirits has all the elements that cozy story lovers enjoy - there's murder and mystery and a bit of mayhem, but it's countered with feel-good moments and a steamy romance that -- in true cozy fashion -- leaves the details behind closed doors. (YAYYYY!)  The book has a scattering of typos and comma errors that most won’t notice, but none detracted from the quality of the story and Willis’s ability to tell a tale. I see why this book is an award winner.

I don’t know if there will be another adventure for Gera and the cast of characters (both otherworldly and not) who surround her, but I sure hope so. Either way, I will be seeking out other titles by author Becki Willis, who is clearly a gifted writer. 

Thank you to Lone Star Book Blog Tours and the author for providing me a print copy in exchange for my honest opinion – the only kind I give. 

To the delight of readers around the world, Becki Willis writes memorable characters in believable situations. Best known for Forgotten Boxes and The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series, Becki has won numerous awards, but says her biggest achievement is her family and her loyal reader base.
