Title: P.S. I Spook You
Author: S.E. Harmon
Narrator: Noah Michael Levine
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Run Time: 8 hours and 35 minutes
At a Glance: P.S. I Spook You is an enjoyable listen and if it is the first in a series, the slower pace to Rain’s coming to terms with his new ability and renewed love for Danny makes sense. Buy the book if you like intelligent stories about the possibility of a spirit world. It’s good fun.

Blurb: SSA Rain Christiansen used to be the agency’s golden boy. It just takes one moment of weakness, one slight, tiny, itty-bitty paranormal sighting, and all of a sudden, he’s the agency’s embarrassment. His boss gives him one last chance to redeem himself – go down to Brickell Bay, play nice with the local police, and leave the ghost sightings behind. Rain is determined to do exactly that, even if it kills him.
Cold-case Detective Daniel McKenna’s latest investigation is going nowhere fast. Five years earlier, high school student Amy Greene went missing after leaving her part-time job and was never seen again. Daniel is glad to finally have the FBI help his department requested, even if it does come in the form of his ex.
It doesn’t help that Rain is pretty sure he’s falling in love with Danny all over again – if he ever stopped. Add to that the frustration of seeing ghosts at every turn while he works a case that’s stalled in its tracks, and Rain is starting to wonder if second chances and happy endings are just for fairy tales.
Review: Rain used to be one of the best most reliable SSAs in his region. He had the respect of his bosses and colleagues. Until he started seeing, hearing, and being plagued by ghosts. Time off and medication slowed but did not end the assaults. Finally, Rain’s boss assigns him cold case detail and ships him to his hometown to try and recoup some equilibrium. Except Danny, his ex, is the detective assigned to him in the local police station. To say there is tension over the past is putting it lightly. Now they are working together, living together, and Danny knows Rain is holding back.
There is a lot going on in this book. That can be a good thing and a bad thing. So much is done to establish Rain’s connection to the spirit world that the pacing can be lost from time to time. Levine does his very best to keep the plot moving along, even when it tends to slow down to allow Danny to process his ability. Levine is a good voice actor, and his ability to push forward is really a boon to the listener. There are certainly places where the pace is quick and thrilling, too, and those stand out even more against the more languid pace of the subplots.
P.S. I Spook You is an enjoyable listen and if it is the first in a series, the slower pace to Rain’s coming to terms with his new ability and renewed love for Danny makes sense. Buy the book if you love the author or the narrator. Buy the book if you like intelligent stories about the possibility of a spirit world. Buy it and enjoy it; it’s good fun.
