I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Linx Maxwell’s life is on the verge of greatness. She’s finally graduated from street fairs and hopping chain link to making art that pays the bills. Her family life is… not dull. And it looks like her van might just be able to exist on hope and duct tape.
If only she could get rid of the ghost who’s plagued her since the eighth grade.
Frank Bogle is a detective who lost his life in the line of duty. Everyone on the other side knows that the Maxwell women are the best mediums in the business, but did he have to get attached to the one whose hair had been attacked by a weed wacker?
Frank doesn’t like his afterlife any more than Linx does. He just doesn’t know how to leave.
Linx & Bogie is a stand-alone, short fiction, paranormal series by Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental World, the Irin Chronicles, and the Cambio Springs Mysteries.
I never wanted Linx & Bogie to end. It was really really good. From the moment I picked it up, I was enraptured with it. I couldn’t put it down, and as the page number was increasing my anxiety was increasing as well. Nooooo, I didn’t want it to end. I had no clue Hunter was writing this. I love her work and have really stuck with her series, but I’m one of those fans that will wait until the author’s newsletter makes announcements instead of stalking their social media. Maybe I should have, and then I would have been prepared for this awesomeness.
Linx comes from a family of powerful women who deal in the supernatural world. Each generation does something different, and it goes on from there. Unbeknownst to Linx’s family she’s a gateway to the other side, and she can see her charges. I don’t think they were expecting Bogie. At 14 she met Bogie and he’s been with her every since.
I really enjoyed the interaction and the story between these two characters. Bogie is such a gentleman, but cares deeply for Linx and vice versa. It must have been hard being the ghost girl in elementary school, and high school not fairing that much better. With the love from her family, Bogie, and Raul life is good for Linx. She’s a private investigator part time, amazing artist full time, and all around devouty to Bogie.
This is strictly NO ROMANCE. Don’t come looking for it. I can read about these two for days. Hunter is such an amazing writers and I continuously hold her to high regards because she always puts out the best and thorough effort in her characters and stories. I’m not surprised by how good it is. I’m merely surprised that we couldn’t get more out on the page. I would really like to see more from these characters! This is a definite recommend from me!
