I became enamored with Riley on page one and enjoyed every minute I spent devouring the book.  Riley and her dad have a very strong, loving relationship that is so refreshing from the normal Teenage “I hate my parents” spiel.  There were issues between father and daughter but somehow they both tried hard to become better people in spite of their individual flaws. 
The story was riveting. Riley has the unusual power to see ghosts and since her father is a mortician; he unknowingly sometimes brings them home with him.  Riley and her dad just recently moved to a smallish town and Riley wants desperately to fit in and be liked at school but that is not so easily accomplished, it seems.
I enjoyed the writing style and loved the way in which the story unfolded.  For me, the romance definitely played second fiddle to the mystery and suspense aspects of the tale - just the way I like it.
This is a great start to an exciting and unusual series with fabulous characters facing some real life problems and Riley dealing with all that and the supernatural.  I recommend it highly!

Riley has accepted that her special gift is to help dead people with their unfinished business.  But she never thought she’d be tasked with helping the spirit of a convicted criminal who died in prison.  He may lead her on the scariest mission yet, but helping him could mean saving the life of a child.  The convict’s daughter needs a liver transplant and the one person who could still be a match is his brother…who also happens to be a gang leader.Hayden’s not happy that Riley’s discovered who he is and is seeing him sick and unconscious in his hospital bed.  This feels like as good a time as ever to cross over and put all of them out of their misery….but Riley is in danger.  She’s visiting some of the most dangerous spots and confronting some of the creepiest low-lifes in town.  For her, he’ll need to regain his strength and fight to keep her safe.
But dealing with other people’s problems still can’t keep Riley from her own.  Her dad’s drinking has gotten worse.  And she’ll soon learn it’s because he’s been keeping a huge, horrible secret that will change everything she believes about her family and her mother’s death.

The second book picks up immediately from where the first one ended.  I did not honestly expect to like this book as much as I enjoyed the first one after reading the blurb.  I just did not think the story could get much better.  I was mistaken.  I read Two Feet Under with the same passion and intensity as the first one.  The story was even more intense and the stakes higher than ever.  This series is superb and I am really looking forward to the third installment of this fascinating adventure.
