Review Tour: End of the Road by Karen Michelle Nutt

End of the Road
by Karen Michelle Nutt


GENRE:   Paranormal Mystery/Ghost/Romance



Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and his death was ruled an unfortunate accident. Despite the fact he can't recall what happened to him in his last moments of life, he is convinced he was murdered. He has been trapped in limbo until his daughter, Cecilia, unearths his journal and is able to see him. She seeks help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lars' rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.


Excerpt Two:

(Cecilia found her father's journal and a message is revealed.)

She stared at the book and wondered what she should do with it. Should she give it to her mother?

She fixed the floorboard, and then stood to put the last guitar in its place. She took the journal with her and stepped out of the closet and closed the door behind her. She glanced at the book in her hand. She'd be lying if she weren't just a tad curious to know what her father had written. Maybe after she read it and made sure there wasn't anything in it that would upset her mother, she'd give it to her. God knew her mother didn't need anything else to obsess about in regards to her father.

She placed the journal on the desk but as she turned a loud slap against the wood floor had her whirling around with a gasp. She found the journal had fallen and lay at her feet, opened to a page where a slip of paper rested within the crease. She leaned down and reached for the note and unfolded it. The first lines jumped out at her, making her feel dizzy and a little queasy as if she'd indulged in her mother's stash. She stood and read the lines again.

I don't fear the reaper. It's the humans with death in their eyes that scare me shitless. If you're reading this, death found me when my back was turned.

My Review: 5*
This is my 2nd book by Karen Michelle Nut and cannot wait for that number to rise some more. My first book by her was Two Worlds Collided, it was an awesome book. This book was even better. There re a few references to Bellemy Lovel from the first book in this one. Both books are about heartthrob bad boy Rock and Roll singers who died before their time. 

In this book Cecilia Gunner is the daughter Phoebe Keddie and the late great Lars Gunner. Lars passed away when Cecilia was 3 when he drove his car over the edge of a pier.  Was it an accident or murder?

Cecilia finds her father's notebook. He used to write his song lyrics, notes, and more in the book. After finding the book Cecilia starts seeing his father's ghost. Lars is positive he was murdered but cannot remember the remaining minutes of his life. He wants Cecilia to help him find out who murdered him. 

Along the way they meet Kaleb. The son of the psychic Lars was seeing before his death. Kaleb can also see ghosts. He begins to help Cecilia and Lars solve the mystery of his death. Along the way many questions come up of who killed him. Was it Pheobe? He had just told her he wanted a divorce minutes before his death. Or was it someone else and why? 

Someone breaks into to Cecilia's house and tries to steal their belongings at a magic gig of Kaleb's. Now they need to solve and survive the death of Lars Gunner.
