Congratulations to Kelly Martin on the release of her fifth book, The Afterlife of Lizzie Monroe!
If Shane Davis had it to do over again, he wouldn’t have gone out that night. He wouldn’t have burned down the church. And he sure wouldn’t have taken the annoying dead girl home with him.
Now that Shane has her, he has no idea what to do with her. He can’t release her into the “wild” because people will recognize her (being a hundred and fifty year old town ‘legend’ will do that). He can’t send her away because she can’t take care of herself yet. And she can’t stay because if people find her, they’ll know he burned the church. Being eighteen now, Shane definitely doesn’t want that fact coming out.
Unbeknownst to Shane, someone has figured out the girl’s secret and will do anything to get it for himself… even kill the girl who isn’t so immortal after all.
Shane jumped to his knees, but Lizzie grabbed his arm to keep him from attacking Drake. She wasn’t worth it.
Shane looked down at her, his face hard. “He needs to learn to keep his mouth shut.”
Lizzie opened her mouth to speak, but Drake beat her to it. “And I bet you are the one to teach me, right, Davis?”
“Shut up,” Cheyenne said, stepping in front of Drake. “You two just cool it. You’re acting like children.”
“He started it.” Drake sat back down on the rolling chair in a huff. He ran his hands thought his hair and sighed.
Lizzie tugged on Shane’s arm to pull him down to her. He complied, but didn’t seem pleased about it. He wrapped his fingers around hers, holding her hand. If Lizzie’s heart could beat, it would have beat out of her chest. Even though he was holding her hand, he kept his eyes on Drake and Cheyenne. Lizzie wasn’t even sure he knew he was holding her hand, but Lizzie knew and she didn’t try to let go.

“…It’s been quite awhile that I have picked up a book that I didn’t want to put down! Once again you have outdone yourself Kelly!
The Afterlife of Lizzie Monroe is about 2 teenagers from 2 different Centuries with two different sets of beliefs. Set in a small local Tennessee Town, Lizzie is an innocent girl, and a local legend, who is a devout believer from the 1800’s and Shane Davis is a child of the current century who has had,what some would call a rough life, and doesn’t believe in anyone or anything. Brought together by one deliberate act of arson, the two are brought together to teach each other that life isn’t always as bad as you perceive it to be.
Is there more to the legend of “Lonely Lizzie” than what Shane has learned from a 2nd grade field trip and tales spun through out the centuries?
Is it fate or some sort of Black Magic? Are they star crossed lovers? Or just two lost and lonely souls meant to meet at this particular place and time to teach each other that there is more to life than what you feel at the moment you chose to do something you may find yourself regretting forever? Is the destiny you chose for yourself in that one moment of hurt,sadness or anger, the destiny chosen for you for all eternity?.” Gina, Amazon
“Oh Kelly, Kelly, Kelly. You had me a bit skeptical with this one. An dead girl who isn’t actually dead after 150 years?! I’ve read my share of paranormal stories…some good and some not so good. You got me with this one though.
How the symmetry of events in this book went from one instance the next was perfect. And the last half of the book literally had me parked on the couch with my heating blanket unable to move until I finished. And let’s not even get into the twists in the book…just wow.
I want to say so much, but I won’t for fear of spoiling some major ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ and ‘ohemgees’ in this book…” DMC, Amazon
