review-cover-electricityTitle: Electricity [Haunted Voices]

Author: Claire Gem

Genre: Paranormal, Romance

Rating: 5 Stars



She’s an electrician starting over with her son. New town, new job. New life.

He’s a coworker who’s interested in more than her ability to run conduit.

And the building they’re rewiring was once an insane asylum…

Mercedes Donohue pulled up roots in Atlanta when her marriage imploded. She’s come back to New England, to the place where she was born. Mercy’s focus is to stabilize her teenage son’s life—he took the breakup pretty hard—and to establish her place, gain the respect of Progressive Electrical’s team.

She never expected so many sparks to fly so soon, both on the job and after hours.

Daniel Gallagher has been alone since his fiancé’s death. He’ll never feel that way about any woman again, and will certainly won’t try with another independent, strong-willed one. Then Mercy short-circuits his plans.

Although the asylum closed its doors over thirty-five years ago, it seems some of the patients never left . . .


I really enjoyed Electricity by Claire Gem. Equal parts spooky ghost story and sweet romance, the book was well written and captured my attention from the very first page. The narrative flowed easily and the characters were both colorful, and easy to like (especially the ghosts!)

I wish I had more to say about this book, but I have nothing to complain about – it was simply a good story. If you enjoy ghost stories – especially those that aren’t too creepy – and you have a penchant for romances, I highly recommend you give this book a try. I certainly look forward to reading more books by this author.
