Only a Ghost Knows is a paranormal thriller written by Mary Elizabeth Sheffield. Amy Fletcher is a freelance journalist who’s finally gotten up the gumption to move out of her father’s house and into a place of her own. After the stress of telling him about her move, Amy's relieved to be returning for a visit to her home-state of Georgia after a 10-year absence. Becky, her best friend and constant correspondent, has asked her to come and investigate the odd goings-on at the nursing home where she works. The stately Victorian mansion seems to be haunted, and the supervisor's decision to close off the entrance to an upper turret seems to have been the catalyst for the increased paranormal activity. Amy's been seeing the spirits of people who've passed on since she was very small, and Becky thinks she'll be perfect for resolving this mystery.
Mary Elizabeth Sheffield's paranormal thriller, Only a Ghost Knows, is a well-written and entertaining ghost story. I love ghost stories and was not at all disappointed by Sheffield's offering. She builds a marvelous plot surrounding Lily Richfield, a young woman who lost her husband and son and lived on in the house her husband built until she was found dead of a morphine overdose. The villain of the tale, nursing home supervisor, Dorothy Green, is decidedly creepy, evil and repulsive, and seems a lot scarier than any spectral visitation Amy has yet to encounter. I enjoyed every minute I spent reading Only a Ghost Knows and recommend it to those who enjoy paranormal thrillers.
