Celia Macarty is back in Post Mortem, the second installment in the Parish Mail saga.

Autumn in New Orleans means Homecoming, romance—and murder. When a friend vanishes, Celia believes a desperate letter about an unsolved Civil War-era murder holds the key to unraveling the mystery.

As she searches for answers, Celia enlists the help of quirky witch Tilly, and either all-American boy Donovan or, enigmatic Luc–you get to choose.

As the gang follows the missing girl’s trail, danger turns up on all fronts. A vicious stranger threatens Celia’s family. Celia’s nightmares–about a shadowy, ominous villain–get worse. And a new ghost has appeared: beautiful Angelica, who shares a past with Luc.

It will take all of Celia’s will and wit, and the faith of her friends, to solve an unspeakable crime. And no matter which path Celia takes, she will discover that sometimes the past can come back to haunt you.

What’s Cool from Coliloquy
Throughout the Parish Mail series, readers decide which clues to follow to help Celia unravel each mystery. You’ll even get to cast a vote for your favorite love interest. But remember: Choose carefully, or else the killer might just get away.

Editor reviews

I'm a huge fan of Coliloquy interactive ebook serials. It's fun and unique and totally thinks outside of the box.

Parish Mail is one of my favorites! This second installment has us following Celia as she tries to find her missing friend. Her other friends Tilly, Dovovan, and Luc try to help. What I love is the reader can decide whether or not Celia can go to the very human Dovovan for help or the ghost Luc. I admit, I'm starting to lean toward Dovovan! Luc, still has the spark but I'm loving the chemistry between Celia and Dovovan. Tilly is great with her own kind of help. The setting is perfect too. Old New Orleans which is filled with hauntings.

There's so much to love about this ebook serial: romance, mystery, suspense, and one very hawt ghost. There's also the start of a possible love triangle that I hope will continue in the next installment.

Plus there's added surprises like a girl from Luc's mysterious past who pops up after the veil between our world and the spirit world has been torn. There's some other reveals toward the end that leave readers wanting more!

A fun unique premise where the reader can choose the direction of the story. Can't wait for more!
