Happily Never After
by Missy Fleming

Happily Never After by Missy Fleming is Book 1 of the Savannah Shadows Series.

The author, in my humble opinion, has crafted a real masterpiece here! It is an intoxicating read that kept me hooked from the very first sentence of the Prologue -- “Mama always told me Savannah was home to more than just the living.” -- until the very end!

Happily Never After falls into the category of YA Paranormal Fantasy/Romance, and I’m sure it will have hosts of fans who enjoy reading books in this genre.

Quinn Roberts lives in Savannah, rumored to be the most haunted place in the US, together with her stepmother Marietta and Marietta’s twin daughters, Anna and Suzie. Treated with no dignity, Quinn is in charge of all the household chores and is always the first to blame if something goes wrong. Given the setting of the novel, it’s not a rare occasion. 

But that’s hardly the worst part for Quinn who feels the presence of spirits – good or evil – her entire life. One of such spirits wants to make sure Quinn won’t manage to live till her eighteenth birthday.

As she meets a famous actor Jason Preston, everything turns even more complicated for Quinn. The question that thrilled me the most was: Will she be able to break that “happily never after” for the Roberts family or no? I think the answer you’ll have to find out for yourselves, but I’m sure if you pick up this book, you won’t be disappointed.

Twists and turns make this book into a real rollercoaster. Dark bits and romantic scenes were balanced throughout the narrative and did not let my obsession with this book wane a little bit. The ending is absolutely fantastic! Kudos to Missy Fleming!

I look forward to reading A Strange There After, Book 2 of the Savannah Shadows Series, when it’s out there.


There's no such thing as happy endings.

Savannah, Georgia is rumored to be the most haunted place in America. Quinn Roberts knows it is. She's felt the presence of spirits her entire life, investigating and photographing them with her best friend. Only none of those encounters ever turned violent, until now. The menacing darkness feeding off her stepmother has promised she won't live to see her eighteenth birthday.

After a chance meeting Quinn reluctantly allows actor Jason Preston into her life, which has complications of its own. She's not used to letting people get close. Falling for him while fighting for her life, and her family's legacy, only complicates things more. Jason shows her exactly what she stands to lose, especially when she's being attacked by the mysterious entity. Each attack is more violent and terrifying than the last.

With Jason's help, she dives into the Roberts' family history, searching for a link between a woman who went missing a hundred and fifty years ago and what's happening now. What they find is a brutal murder and that the ghost doesn't just want to hurt Quinn, it wants revenge.

It wants her life.
