I have to share another one of my favorite books with you today... Grave Refrain. I first read this story when it was fanfiction, and I fell in love with it. When Sarah published it, I was ecstatic. She writes beautifully, and the story she tells here is captivating. I love her characters. I love the lyrical quality of her writing, and I love the paranormal elements that come in to play here. Even more than that... I absolutely love the way she weaves so many love stories into one epic tale. If you haven't read this one yet, you must.
Grave Refrain by Sarah Glover
Andrew Hayes, a brilliant but troubled musician, has been haunted since childhood by memories of his muse. One night from a San Francisco stage, he spots her, but before he can reach her, she vanishes from sight. Desperate to find the woman, he accepts a curious offer to stay in the city, moving into a dilapidated Victorian under going renovations that stir up far more than dust. Andrew's life soon becomes even more chaotic with the arrival of martini-swilling ghosts and a troupe of flesh-and-blood stoner spiritualists bringing bad tidings from the Great Beyond. The dark side of his obsession creates visions both thrilling and menacing, and as he struggles to solve the mysteries threatening him, Andrew discovers his life is repeating a refrain more deadly than he'd ever imagined. Inspired by the sexy noirs and comedies of the past, Grave Refrain transports the reader to a place where the things that go bump in the night not only thrill you, but might just take your breath away for good.

About the Author
A writer and recovering CPA, I live in San Francisco in an old house with a brood of people -- some taller, some shorter, all of whom I adore. As a child I often hid under the blankets with a dog-earred copy The Norton Anthology of English Literature, obsessing over the men in the sepia squares.
I've written for magazine and radio---even penned a few musical comedies and forced fine actors to make fools of themselves for charity. My first novel, Grave Refrain, will be released on Valentine's Day, 2012. If you like mystery, martini-swilling ghosts, and a clever set of cursed lovers, read on.
