To any authors/publishers/ tour companies that are looking for the reviews that I signed up for please know this is very hard to do. I will be stopping reviews temporarily. My husband passed away February 1st and my new normal is a bit scary right now and I am unable to concentrate on a book to do justice to the book and authors. I will still do spotlight posts if you wish it is just the reviews at this time. I apologize for this, but it isn't fair to you if I signed up to do a review and haven't been able to because I can't concentrate on any books. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. I appreciate all of you. Kathleen Kelly April 2nd 2024

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Pre-Order on Amazon

Decaf For The Dead” Synopsis

Patrick “Dilly” Dillon has been lifeless ever since he lost his wife in a tragic car accident. He’s desperate to reconnect with her and hopes one day she’ll come back to him as he sits in their favorite café day after day. He still orders two cups of coffee, hoping he’ll look up from his sketch book and see his Margaux’s face across from him with her hands wrapped around a mug.

The world is different now that she’s gone. Food is tasteless, the sun dim, and Dilly can’t remember the last time he felt the touch of another human being, even though he remains close to the baristas at Café Conquistador. Life will never be the same…

That is until a stunning young woman enters the café one day.

Jocelyn sees Dilly unlike anyone else and he can’t help but feel guilty for feeling drawn to another woman… There is just something about Jocelyn that feels familiar to him and he’s not sure why.

Legend has it that the Café Conquistador is haunted. Maybe it’s just tall tales or maybe it’s wishful thinking by the Conquistador baristas who miss seeing the most in-love couple they’ve ever known sipping coffee together every morning.
