Relatively Dead by Sheila Connolly
Relatively Dead is a good title for this book. It is an historical paranormal mystery romance. After moving to New England with her boyfriend, Abby begins sensing the ghostly residue of people whom she later learns are her distant ancestors. As her relationship with Brad goes downhill, she finds solace in searching out more mysterious ghostly encounters with her friend Ned as she traces her family tree to find out why she is sensing the dead people. Abby herself also seems relatively dead-ish. She doesn't find her boyfriend interesting, and he does not find her interesting either. They both seem like rather dull people. Even when her friendship with Ned becomes more than just a friendship, they both still seem rather bland. There is a lot of historical information included about the New England area. I got this book free to review from Netgalley.
