"My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to the rules passed down from my father. But now a haunted police detective has entered my world and everything is changing, including the rules that have always kept me safe. It started with the discovery of a young woman's brutalized body in an old Charleston graveyard I've been hired to restore. The clues to the killer--and to his other victims--lie in the headstone symbolism that only I can interpret. Devlin needs my help, but his ghosts shadow his every move, feeding off his warmth, sustaining their presence with his energy. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the symbols lead me closer to the killer and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next."--P.

The Restorer de Amanda Stevens

  1. 01
    Anna Dressed in Blood de Kendare Blake (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both novels involve creepy, angry ghosts and the narrator's attempts to deal with them in the tradition of their father's teaching. Anna Dressed in Blood is YA and involves ghost-slaying, while the heroine of The Restorer simply wants the ghosts to ignore her, but there is a similar creepiness about them.… (més)

I love ghost stories, and this book does not disappoint! ( )
  Gina_Price | Jul 24, 2021 |
I really liked this book. It was the right mix of science, supernatural, mystery, and romance.

I would love Amelia's job. She restores old graveyards. Yes! I want to change careers right now! She can see ghosts. That's a whole story by itself. Someone gets murdered. She meets a handsome detective. There's much more plot than love scenes so its all good.

I am moving on to book 2 eventually. This book was fun. ( )

Amelia Gray is a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. While working in a Charleston cemetery, she discovers a woman's brutalized body. Police detective, John Devlin, is sent to investigate and wants Amelia to use her knowledge of tombstones to help him figure out the clues. Soon Amelia becomes involved in a world of violence, death, and secret societies. While she recognizes she's putting herself in danger, she cannot abandon John Devlin and this investigation.

Devlin has a tragic past and is haunted by the loss of his wife and daughter. The romance is an important part of the story, but in no way takes over from the main mystery in the book.

I thought this book was a nice mix of various genres. There’s romance, there’s a paranormal mystery, but there’s also a suspense elemnt. I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys reading books with a paranormal element. Even if you’re not generally a fan of romance, the romance subplot is small enough here not to distract you from the main plot. I don't like ghost stories but was totally charmed by this introduction to the Graveyard Queen series. I definitely plan to pick up another. ( )

There were parts of this that were creepy and it's an interesting premise. Stevens has clearly researched her subject matter although that research at times is a little too obvious.

I didn't find the dialogue convincing so struggled to warm or believe in the characters which is essential for me when I have to suspend disbelief for supernatural elements. ( )

Entertaining. ( )
