Soul in Present Condition :: Book Review

Name of Book: Soul in Present Condition

Author: Mary E Merrell

This is the first time I chose to read a book on the paranormal activity by the author Mary E. Marrell. The story starts with the real estate agent Rosemary Fernandes who could communicate to the ghosts in the houses, where she takes her clients. The story also reveals about the vampires and she being a human servant to her vampire boss, Marcus. His blood had made her look younger than she was.

Rosemary's gifted way of communicating to the ghosts had helped them resolve their problems. However, she has to tackle with the vampires, Lucila & her friend, Abel, who wants to make Marcus jealous ever since he hired Rosemary.

The characters are pleasant, the the pace at which the story is told is well maintained. But I felt there is a dependency on the previous two novels,House Haunting and Curve Appeal.    

Author Info
Mary E. Merrell writes Paranormal Mysteries and Young Adult Urban Fantasy. She has worked many jobs, but always had stories in her head. It wasn’t until she went into real estate and walked into that old, vacant home that The Real Estate Paranormal Mystery Series came to life. Fortunately, nothing spooky happened at the furniture store, or the first book might have been, “The Haunted Sofa."

 Mary E. Merrell’s plots are smooth and slightly dark, and her characters sinfully sweet. Try a little guilty pleasure with House Haunting, the first book in The Real Estate Paranormal Mystery Series. One reviewer called it “A good start to a new series.”

 Her Young Adult series, Affinity is also humorous but deals with very real life themes. A reviewer said, “Love it. So different. A fun read.”

 Mary E. Merrell lives in the Central Valley of California with her husband, two dogs, and five cats. She has two grown sons. When she’s not writing, she’s gardening or playing soccer.
