Dead Letter Office - Parish Mail is a young adult "Active Fiction" title, a new type of e-book from Coliloquy. In this Active Fiction series, your input influences future books from this author. Specifically, in Dead Letter Office - Parish Mail, your input influences a mystery thrust upon a newly fatherless girl, Celia.

When Celia's father is killed in Afghanistan, she moves to the city of his birth, New Orleans. Struggling to adjust and haunted by troubling dreams, Celia finds comfort in new friends like Tilly, a practicing witch, and Donovan, the son of a police detective. On Halloween, Celia meets the mysterious Luc and finds a hundred-year-old letter, seemingly addressed to her and describing a present-day murder. With help from her new friends, Celia races to solve the murder and the mystery of the letter using both magical and forensic clues.

Parish Mail is written like a TV series, with over-arching storylines that tie together single-episode cases. The author sees the aggregate statistics on what option gets picked the most, so the more you read, the more you influence what she writes!

I really loved this latest interactive ebook from Coliloquy. In this story Celia ends up moving to the hometown of her recently killed father. Once there she finds a mysterious letter in her grandmother's mailbox. The letter is over 150 years old. What's very strange is it's addressed to her!

I love how I'm able to decide what path Celia goes on to solve the mystery. Plus there's not one but three possible guy interests. Luc is a ghost who happens to pop up on Halloween after a portal is opened. Let's just say he's very hot and the chemistry between these two sizzles. I haven't loved a romance between a ghost and the living since Meg Cabot's Mediator series. You almost wish he was still alive! Donovan is the son of the local detective who gives Luc a run for his money. Plus the rich guy Sloan is a mystery. I can't help but think there's more going on with him too.

The supporting characters are well written too. Tilly, the loyal friend who tries witchcraft to help. Peyton, the high school mean girl, who has her own secret. And of course the city of New Orleans that is filled with it's own charm.

I couldn't stop reading this story and the ending leaves you wanting more! Fun, original tale that's Ghost Whisperer meets Veronica Mars with Southern charm. This intriguing story will take you on a fun ride that you help direct!
Good Points
1. Fun interactive feature where you can chose where the story goes
2. Lush writing
3. Great New Orleans backdrop
4. Intriguing premise of girl who finds letters from the dead asking for help
