    I kept reading a couple pages of this book then putting it down, picking it up again, and then putting it down. Finally, I decided to sit down and just finish it and I’m glad I gave this book a chance. Once I decided to just finish it I got into the story and the characters and ended up really liking this story. I’m now invested in the characters and the series. My favorite thing about the story was the supernatural and the mystery solving aspect of it and of course the growing relationship [...]

    Loose Ends should have been a complete cliché: Ghost-glimpsing paranormal investigator Mary O’Reilly teams up with skeptical handsome new police chief Bradley Alden to solve the disappearance of five little girls near the Apple River Fort Historic Site in Illinois. But somehow author Terri Reid makes it work well enough. Don’t ask me how she did it, but, for the most part, I really enjoyed this breezy read — the first in a series — about fictional doings in the real-life small town of F [...]

    Dying is what changed Mary O’Reilly’s life. 3.5 stars. Loose Ends is a light mystery read. I thought it was both charming and humorous. Mary O'Reilly was a Chicago police officer who was shot in the line of duty. She died but was resuscitated. Since that day she has been able to see the ghosts of people who have not crossed over. She decides to quit the police force and opens up a paranormal detective agency after moving to a small town. For the most part I liked this. I would give it 4 star [...]

    I got this book for the same reason a lot of people did, it seems. It was cheap (or in my case, temporarily free) on . I usually won't bother with self-published books unless I know the author. However, this book really surprised me.A basic, non-spoilery run down is that our main heroine was shot in the line of duty as a police officer and died momentarily only to be brought back from the brink. She also happened to bring back the ability to see and communicate with spirits with her.Now she work [...]

    I am not usually one who's drawn to paranormal mysteries, however, after reading so many positive reviews about Terri Reid's Mary O'Reilly's series, I decided to give it a try, and boy oh boy, I was literally blown away by this book. 'Loose Ends' is just the first in a long series.Mary O'Reilly, a Chicago cop, was shot during a stake-out gone bad. Later, surrounded by her family, she died in hospital, but she remained dead only for a few minutes. She was sent back among the living with an added [...]

    Pretty average and I read too many mysteries books 😬The way the author tried to give you some idea about the villain in the first chapter is not working with me, I can guess the bad guy straight away, gosh! He was so damn obvious!!Also with the crimes like these and that cover, you wanted more intensity in this book which is not happened here, a bit disappointed really.But this book on KU and pretty thin compare with other mysteries books, so you can read quick between your other book. Also y [...]

    I bought this because it was cheap and had good reviews. An excellent way to go about finding new authors, I think. It was pretty good for the first book in a series. Except for the fact you can tell who the culprit is as soon as they're described. Authors have these little axes to grind and they become a lot more obvious than they think they're being. This is why I don't always go for mysteries. I can usually tell by the way an author describes a person whether or not that person is going to be [...]

    ***Review available by request for those on my Friends list***

    This is the first in a series of paranormal mysteries. The characters are fun and sometimes quirky. Mary O'Reilley is a former cop turned private investigator who was shot dead but revived with the ability to see and communicate with ghosts. Some of them have problems for her to resolve, sometimes they help her solve real life mysteries. None of the characters takes themselves too seriously and the mystery story-telling is pretty good. Halfway through the first one I downloaded three more (there [...]

    One of my main complaints about too many female detective stories these days is that the women are supposed to be brilliant in every way but do totally stupid things so the guy can rescue her. Mary O'Reilly not only doesn't do that, she makes a point of not doing that. I liked this book very much and I loved Mary -- she's smart,savvy, plucky and has a wicked sense of humor which I guess is a good thing when one of your clients shows up in your bedroom every night without his head on.The story is [...]

    Wow this book was very well done. About third of the way through I kinda had an idea who the bad guy was. Mary is a fantastic character. She's smart, sassy, sarcastic and has a sense of humor. A woman gets killed at the start of the book and then years later Mary is hired to figure out why the ghost is haunting this house. She is also investigating a group of missing 8 year old girls that may or may not be tied to the first ghost. Then someone starts trying to kill her and Police Chief Bradley s [...]

    A pleasant cozy/paranormal mystery. I read all six books in the series one after another. They need some serious proof-reading and the help of an editor, but if you can get over the typos and the fact that there really isn't much of a mystery to them, they are quite pleasant, remarkably quick little reads. Be warned that the need for proof-reading really worsens throughout the series and eventually becomes downright annoying in th 6th book. But having said that (and gritting my teeth over things [...]

    I'm giving this four stars even tho it had issues. I liked the story and the main characters. Since I like paranormal themes this really worked. It flowed well and was an easy read. The negatives were the punctuation and other editing problems. Not to mention a faux pas near the end where the villain apparently gave himself away with a statement and the Chief didn't catch it. I did figure out earlier that he was the one. I have the next book and still do look forward to reading it.

    Very enjoyable, fast-paced read. Cover to cover in one day with lots of other things going on in-betweenally held my interest. Likable characters, interesting premise, hopeful romancewill read the next in the series!

    Its ok. Nothing said wow about this book to me. I don't know why it has such good reviews. I wouldn't recommend this book to a friend, not because its bad but because there isn't anything grand about it.

    Bad formatting but fabulous book!

    Cute cozy mystery from a new to me author.In general I don't read cozy mysteries and to be honest, I purchased this book thinking it would be a more "meaty" mystery with the paranormal mixed in. I also expected it to be wella little scary. I was way off the mark but I was pleasantly surprised by this well written start of a series. Mary O'Reilly is a fun character and I really enjoyed how she was developed. Mary is strong, independent, and yes she does see ghosts. I liked how her character playe [...]

    Reviewed by Whitney@Shooting Stars ReviewsMary can see ghosts and now she is a private investigator. She doesn't just investigate ghosts though, she also tries to help the ones who are currently living. When she is asked to help the ghost at the local senator's house things get complicated when she starts to find out the secrets of the past. Not only that, but someone doesn't want her to find out, and with the handsome police chief out to help her things get even more complicated. Especially whe [...]

    I enjoyed this book. I wish the details of Mary's death and coming back were part of this story. You sort of go in clueless as to the situation. The descriptions were great for the characters, down to the dripping blood and rotting flesh of the the soldier.The storyline of the senator could have been more broad, but overall the story was very well done. The little girls deaths were heartbreaking, but Mary's fierce determination made it worth continuing.

    Mary O'Reilly sees and can communicate with ghosts after a near death experience. This is the first in the series. Mary is hired to find out what happened to a young woman who was killed 24 years ago. While investigating that murder she uncovers the ghosts of young girls who were murdered around the same time, so she is investigating on two fronts. Meanwhile she has met the new Police Chief and is beginning to fall for him even though he is unfortunately married. But his wife disappeared 8 years [...]

    I picked this up as a kindle freebie and it was quite good. Mary is a former Chicago cop who was killed in the line of duty. She actually died on the table but was revived. But she brought back a little something extra when she came back, she can now see, hear and interact with ghosts. They come to her to help them get to their final resting place.Now she lives in a smaller town working as a PI and using her special skills to help solve cases. The latest case involves a woman who died in the 80s [...]

    ***SLIGHTLY SPOILERY!!*** Terri Reid wove Loose Ends together beautifully. There were some bits that were foreshadowed a little too well. That is to say, I knew the Police Chief Bradley was her mysterious racing partner almost as soon as one and the other were mentioned. However, the characters are witty, fun, and despite having their own dark pasts, they aren’t broody and depressing. They have unique personalities, flaws, and strengths. It was also a unique perspective on someone who’s a me [...]

    I have had this book in my TBR pile for awhile. I bought it for the ghost theme. I don't know why I let it set for so long. I guess I was worried it would be another poorly edited book or the ghosts wouldn't be real or have very little ghost interaction. This book was wonderful. I don't give five stars to many books. This one earned it IMHO. It was funny, had a wonderful secondary cast that didn't distract from the main characters, it just added to the them. The amount ghostly interactions was p [...]

    Obviously Terri Reid has a winner in her Mary O'Reilly paranormal series as she's written 15 of them successfully. I can see why. I greatly enjoyed Mary with her ghostly characters popping in and out on her, although Bradley channeling through her might have stretched the imagination a bit much. Still, it's a ghost story--who's to know? Only thing I didn't enjoy was the formatting. Enjoyed her best buds, Stanley and Rosie; enjoyed getting to know Bradley. A former crack Chicago cop up for detect [...]

    Mary O’Reilly was a Chicago cop until she was shot. She died, and was brought back to life, and now she can see and talk to ghosts. She becomes a PI in the small town of Freeport, Illinois—because there are just too many ghosts to deal with in a city the size of Chicago.When the wife of a U.S. Senator hires her to look into the case of one of her husband’s aides, who died several years earlier, whose ghost is now appearing near the scene, Mary finds herself on the trail of a serial killer [...]

    I picked this up as a Kindle freebie because I love a good ghost story. I was not disappointed. Mary a PI ex cop whose was killed in the line of duty was brought back to life to find she can see ghosts. They are drawn to her, she finds herself solving their issues so they can move on. It's not that bad till the murdered ghost start showing up and things get complicated. She is matched with a grieving Chief of Police who is running from his own ghosts. Together they stumble through this mystery a [...]

    Well she's no Shakespeare but I definitely enjoyed this book. Don't mind the 3 stars because I do reserve the 4 and 5 for mind-blowing literature. 3 means I liked it and would recommend it as a light-read to a friend. I just love that the writer made her main character, Mary O'Reilly, with a sarcastic sense of humor. The fact that Mary doesn't take herself too seriously makes the book more fun to read. First few chapters of the book, I decided not to read too much between the lines, this is not [...]

    I loved this book, and I am insanely jealous of the lead character! Sometimes I wish I could look down a street and see little snippets of history, what the street would have been like however many years agoMary is a private detective unlike any other, her clients come to her at all hours of the day, including the middle of the night, to ask for help. Mary does what she can to help her clients, usually (or should I say unusually) by finding their bodies. You see, Mary can see ghosts. I didn't th [...]

    This is an engaging story about a private detective, Mary, who can see ghosts. She is following up an old death, now thought to be murder, and it's possible a senator is implicated. At the same time, another one of five small girls is found murdered. Coincidence?The characters had good back-stories - Mary's old life in the Chicago police, the local Sherrif's personal loss (his wife's unsolved disappearance 8 years ago) gives them a three dimensionality. I also found the dialogue funny and the wr [...]

    Lisa P
    This was an extremely entertaining, quick read! I loved the main character Mary. She is a strong, independent, sensible woman who happens to see dead people. Being a retired cop, she decided to put this newly acquired skill to good use and become a paranormal investigator. The small town characters and quirky ghosts offered some comic relief; and the murder mystery was intriguing. I didn't figure out "who dunnit" until close to the end. There was also a smidgen of romance, which I hope will cont [...]
