*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
Parrish is a fun, adventurous ghost story with a dash of romance mixed in.
The main character of the story is Sadie Smith, she’s a young woman whose part of a paranormal investigation society. The group is led by Jefferson Parrish, who’s a bit of an eccentric and at times throughout the story; his behavior comes across as creepy. Sadie and Jefferson clash at times, but slowly they start to develop feelings for each other. I love how Sadie tries to get Jefferson to be normal while Jefferson encourages Sadie to be her true, weird self.
Rounding out the group is Deacon, Jefferson’s cousin, who’s not quite as weird as his cousin, but still an oddball. Brighton is the bombshell of the group. She’s got gorgeous good looks; however she suffers from anxiety and OCD, which makes her fit in well with the group.
The group is struggling with their paranormal investigations along with their everyday jobs to pay the bills. One night, they receive mysterious letters offering a hefty reward if they investigate and find a connection with four different locations. So they set off on their road trip to the locations along the way there’s plenty of humor with them staying in dingy hotels and eating fast food. There’s lots of mystery with the investigations as the groups discovers ghosts and clues pointing to their next destination.
I loved how the author wrote the ending; she did a good job of tying everything together. The paranormal and mystery aspect is what drew me into the story. But I also loved the romances brewing between Sadie and Jefferson, along with Deacon and Brighton. The author hints that there’s sequel in the works and I hope it’s true because I can’t wait to see what’s to come of the Parrish Society.
