My Feelings:

"I was standing there naked when my dead husband walked into my bathroom..."
Lillie St. Claire is a Talent, one of the rare few who can permanently dispatch the spirits of the dead that walk the earth. Her skills are in demand in a haunted country, where a plague of ghosts is becoming a civic nuisance.
Those skills bring her into conflict with frightened citizens who view Talents as near-demons. Her husband comes to see her as a Freak; so when Nathan dies after a car crash, she is relieved to be free of his increasingly vicious presence. Lillie expects to be haunted by Nathan's ghost, but not to become Suspect #1 for her husband's murder and reanimation.
But what's most surprising of all is the growing attraction between her and psi-crime detective John Thresher. He thinks that Lillie killed Nathan--and Nathan must agree, because his zombie is seeking revenge. Now she and Thresher must work together to solve her husband's murder--before his corpse kills her...

My Review:
Reading the first line of Dark and Disorderly made me want to read the whole story immediately. It drew me in like a little kid at a candy store.

Lillie isn’t the average heroine. Yes, she’s strong, determined and very alert. But she’s also scared and needs big broad shoulders to cry one. Lillie is a realistic character, except for the job, but it’s easy to relate to her. I really liked Lillie, but I wished that there was more depth to her. Not only to her, but also to the other characters in the story. John Tresher, the detective, plays a big role in the story. He confused me the whole time. Then I thought he liked her, then again not. The whole guessing part made me enjoy the story more.

There is almost non stop action in this book. Lillie is confronted with ghosts, beansidhes, zombies and even normal people who don’t like ‘freaks’. You got to love that.
The one thing that I didn’t like about the story was that there are lot of words used that I don’t understand. A lot of paranormal words without any explanation.

But overall Dark and Disorderly is a book that fans of the paranormal genre will adore. I can’t wait to read the next book in this wonderful new series.

I was just tired of her saying that she was alone when she had so many people pulling for her. I agree with your review!
