    Many thanks to EdelweissPlus and the publisher for providing me with an eARC of this title for review. All opinions are my own. I read Berquist's debut novel, Devils Unto Dust and was wowed beyond belief by her ability to take one familiar trope (zombie infection) and mix it with o...

    Wait, this is supposed to be a romance?! Not that it was not romance but also... not that much? I only see a girl seeing how people die. A YA with an interesting cover. And interesting... yes, that it was. I was also surprised it was not that heavy. I have, recently, read a book ...

    Last year I read Berquist's debut novel, Devils Unto Dust, and ended up putting it on my favourites 2018 shelf. Missing, Presumed Dead is another complete hit for me. As was the case in Devils Unto Dust, Berquist puts her main character Lexi front and centre, her complicated interperso...

    Missing, Presumed Dead is a YA paranormal mystery that takes place in Los Angeles. The narrator is 18 year old Lexi (1st person POV). Lexi sees ghosts. But she also can see how and when a person will die if she touches them. I love books where the main character has psychic abil...
