Goodreads Synopsis:

Celia Macarty is back in Post Mortem, the second installment in theParish Mail saga.

Autumn in New Orleans means Homecoming, romance—and murder. When a friend vanishes, Celia believes a desperate letter about an unsolved Civil War-era murder holds the key to unraveling the mystery.
As she searches for answers, Celia enlists the help of quirky witch Tilly, and either all-American boy Donovan or, enigmatic Luc–you get to choose.
As the gang follows the missing girl’s trail, danger turns up on all fronts. A vicious stranger threatens Celia’s family. Celia’s nightmares–about a shadowy, ominous villain–get worse. And a new ghost has appeared: beautiful Angelica, who shares a past with Luc.
It will take all of Celia’s will and wit, and the faith of her friends, to solve an unspeakable crime. And no matter which path Celia takes, she will discover that sometimes the past can come back to haunt you.
What’s Cool from Coliloquy: 
Throughout the Parish Mail series, readers decide which clues to follow to help Celia unravel each mystery. You’ll even get to cast a vote for your favorite love interest. But remember: Choose carefully, or else the killer might just get away.

My Thoughts:

It is rare that I find a sequel that I enjoy more than the original, but Kira Snyder has definitely outdone herself with Post Mortem.
Our protagonist, Celia Macarty, is back and this time, she has a stack of letters. The mystery, action, and adventure kept me reading until the very last word and left me wanting more. I don’t think there was one turn or twist that I anticipated. Kira keeps you guessing every step of the way. I could not put this book down, in fact, when the battery died on my ebook right in the middle of the final action sequence of the story, I jumped over to Dolby Digital Editions on my computer. I could not wait to finish the story, even though it was 1:00 in the morning and my 4 kids are up at 7:00 am. Boy, was I tired the next day, but extremely story-content. This story just blew me away.
With the addition of some new characters, all of our beloved friends return, lovely Tilly, “all-american boy” Donovan, and of course, our ghostly Luc. Again, you have choices on who Celia is going to call on for assistance as she solves the mystery. And to tell you the truth, I had trouble choosing. Donovan is so sweet, yet Luc has that almost forbidden love feel to him. Even bad boy Sloan has his appeal. And of course, once you read the book, you can always go back and make different choices.

Thank you so much to , who offered Post Mortem to me. It is an absolutely amazing book. Kira Snyder is a very talented writer and I look forward to Parish Mail Xmas, book 3 of the Parish Mail series. Give us more, Kira!! I definitely recommend Post Mortem to all readers of paranormal, mystery, adventure and romance.
