    I found this book to be a light, whimsical,paranormal romance/mystery. Abby is a widowed mother of three who lives in the haunted town of Sunset Cove. She is in love with and committed to her partner ghost Viking Erich. Even though the two cannot make physical contact they have vowed to be together. Erich is looking for a way to be human again, but Abby is completely against it, having been told it goes against everything good in the world. Anyways, the two of them have opened up a PI business, I found this book to be a light, whimsical,paranormal romance/mystery.

Erich is looking for a way to be human again, but Abby is completely against it, having been told it goes against everything good in the world. Anyways, the two of them have opened up a PI business, in the attic of a haunted tea house and have their first client. A very wealthy, snobby woman who wants Abby to find hidden diamonds in the haunted mansion she has just inherited. Can Abby and Erich find the diamonds? What is haunting the mansion? Can Erich find a way to be human again? This is book 1 in the Ghost and Abby mystery series but I felt like I was walking into a series that had already begun. I later found out that it began in a short story. You don't have to read it, to enjoy this book, but knowing their was something before explains why it felt like a lot of the story had been told. Abby was very likable. The only thing that slightly annoyed me was she was always talking about her kids but she never seemed to spend any time with them. But the book would be pretty boring if she was at home with her three kids all the time. Erich was so hard headed, but sweet. I just wanted to smack him in the head with a frying pan though. You see him make these mistakes that are going to take him down a bad path, but he is too arrogant to see his own follies. Vikings! There is sex and sexual talk in this book, which was more graphic than I expected. It didn't bother me. It was sort of funny in parts. I guess I just didn't see it coming for some reason. I would recommend this book to paranormal romance readers or paranormal mystery readers. *I requested a copy of the book from Netgalley and have given an unbiased and honest review*

    Having thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Carson’s Gambling Ghosts series, I was excited to learn that the naughty Viking ghost and cash-strapped widow would be featured in a two-book series. In Midnight Magic, the romance between the star-crossed lovers continues with more interesting twists, among them a treasure hunt for missing diamonds, encounters with sorcerers and vampires, and black magic spells. An intriguing storyline filled with fantastical characters and a surprise ending...a recipe for success!

    I was in the mood for something light and original and spotted this. It's my first time reading something by this author but definitely won't be the last.

Yes it's amusing but it's also poignant as the central couple clearly do love each other. The only problem is Eric is dead whilst Abby is very much alive! This story essentially revolves around a case that investigator Abby has taken on and yes I know there's a plethora of books featuring private investigators but stick with it because there are lots of interesting touches here. First we have the obviously star crossed lovers angle but it's mixed in with haunted houses, witches and unusual vampires. Add in a quest that leaves Abby changed irrevocably and let's not forget that Eric will do just about anything to be with Abby and her children. Yes she's a mum, a janitor and a fledgling investigator but Abby is also very much human with fears, flaws and occasionally a fiesty temperament. This story has certainly sparked my interest in the rest of this series and I happily recommend it. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    I enjoyed the start to a new series, A Ghost & Abby Mystery Series, where ghosts and magic take center state. Abby is the janitor in a haunted tea shop and runs a small PI office on the top floor with the help of her ghost partner, viking Erich. Abby and Erich met in a novella, A Viking Ghost for Valentines Day but this book is an easy read without the novella. There are two additional stories in the series and I'm looking forward to reading them. The story is sensual and funny.

    Abby Jenkins is one fabulous mom who happens to be in love with a Viking--a long dead one. Their romance would be perfect if only they could really embrace, but that's not possible, not yet. However, when there's an opportunity for Eric to come to life for one night of passion, he takes it. Unfortunately, this decision might lead to some very dark business.

The story was fun, and it entertained me from start to finish. I think I'm now a fan and will read more of Ms. Carson's work when I want a good ghostly read with a few laughs. I received this book in a giveaway, and I liked it enough to read and review it honestly.

    I've been involved in the Amazon Top Reviewer community for years, and in the course of that I've been exposed to dozens and dozens of self-published books by hopeful nascent authors. Sadly, most of those efforts are poorly written messes full of bad writing -- comprising every sort of mistake you can imagine. A few are jewels in the rough, where I enjoy the book, and when possible and I think the author would like the feedback, I note a few things that might help improve their writing.

Sadly, most of those efforts are poorly written messes full of bad writing -- comprising every sort of mistake you can imagine. A few are jewels in the rough, where I enjoy the book, and when possible and I think the author would like the feedback, I note a few things that might help improve their writing. Exactly four times in eight years of exploring self-published authors, I've come across work that the NY houses should have found and latched on to. Jo-Ann Carson is my fourth discovery for that list. Midnight Magic is exquisitely executed prose. I've done a lot of writing, and some people tell me that I'm a pretty good writer. But I would shrink with trepidation from the prospect of writing a scene that simultaneously gives a reader shivering goosebumps and makes them chuckle. That's talent. Now, along with that talent for scene crafting comes a ripping good story, with imaginative characters and settings which breathe life fully into the author's make-believe world(s). I'd be tempted to enumerate some of the interesting and amusing touches in the book, but it would be a disservice. I know from my own experience that you'll much more enjoy coming across those interesting surprises on your own. We have in Midnight Magic an appealing heroine, metaphysical friends and encounters, nasty creatures, and humorous relationships that I won't detail per my preceding paragraph. LOL The story immediately grabbed me, and it didn't let up. Haunted houses have received countless treatments, and you'll quickly encounter one here that won't remind you that you've read about them before. I found everything here to be fresh and inventive, and I'm most certainly looking forward to more about these characters and from this author. Well done, and certainly recommended.

The good: a plot that moves swiftly and was NOT a dime a dozen snoozefest. This book had a well-woven story, entertaining characters who kept the reader engaged, and a spunky protagonist (Abby Jenkins) that you'll want to root for. The not-so-good: the story did meander a little with secondary plot threads that weren't essential to the storyline. They weren't bad, but the novel may have been better if it was tightened up. All in all, reading Midnight Magic (A Ghost & Abby Mystery Book 1) by Jo-Ann Carson was an enjoyable way to spend a snowy winter evening, and I am happy to have had the opportunity to do so. I look forward to reading future novels by Jo-Ann Carson.

    Be careful what you wish for as the results might surprise you. A good enjoyable read but seemed to flounder a bit. Being a janitor does not keep her and her children as well as she would want. Therefore she turns her hand to PI work in the hopes that this will provide her with more funds. Her first case is the missing diamonds in the haunted manor.

I suppose it could be called a mystery but that was a slightly thin one. Nevertheless a good read.

    Magic is afoot in Jo-Ann Carson's latest fantasy novel. As I read "Midnight Magic", I was in awe of Ms. Carson's imagination. I was taken in by the fantastical creatures in the book and the involved story of Abby, night janitor of a haunted teahouse turned P.I. and Eric, the Viking ghost love of her life. The plot is involved and intriguing and Carson makes her characters and the magical world around them seem real.

    Midnight Magic is a cute supernatural story about a single mom who is dating a ghost, works in a haunted tea house, and decides to become a private investigator. The story is lots of fun even though it is a bit silly, and there are a couple times when the main character does really stupid things. This book has sex in it as well as light cussing. The narrator of the audiobook gives a cheerful, fun reading that suits the story nicely.

While her primary job is a janitor for a haunted tea house, she also has some sort of affinity for the paranormal. It's this ability that gets her a customer in the form of a woman hunting for diamonds in her recently inherited mansion. Said mansion is also haunted by some mean ghost that makes searching the mansion more difficult. While the story started out a little slow, it picks up with layers of mystery and a subplot dealing with Abby and her Viking ghost boyfriend's relationship. I think that might be the only thing that I sort of missed by not reading the previous short. We join their relationship already in progress and intense enough for him to risk everything to be with her (in exactly the way you're thinking). There is some level of romance and smut, but the book is primarily and mystery and sets up Abby's even more interesting paranormal predilections. Future books should be able to dive right into that drama without the build up that this book went through.

    I am always looking for new romance paranormal book. This being because this past year I really discovered my liking to them. I stumbled across Midnight Magic and thought the plot sounded like nothing I have ever read before in the past. This book was such an interesting take on the typical private investigator plot. It has a little bit of paranormal for everyones taste from sexy viking ghosts to blood sucking beings to witches.

It has a little bit of paranormal for everyones taste from sexy viking ghosts to blood sucking beings to witches. The book started off with Abby, the main character, looking to start up her new private investigation service in the town of Sunset Cover. Her current job is being a janitor and is not enough to support her children, especially since her boyfriend is a viking ghost and cannot make any money. Then it switches to her boyfriend who is seeking out a way to become human once again so that he may be with Abby. Bring in a dark sorcerer and a investigation job to find secret jewels and you have the perfect concoction for a page turning paranormal book. I really enjoyed the ideas and the concepts that the author put into the making of this book. I love when I can find a story that truly intrigues me and is out of the box thinking compared to other that you find in its genre. If an author tries to mimic others with a slight difference it really turns me off from wanting to read it. I would definitely suggest this to anyone looking for a new paranormal read. I am sure I will end up read the next one in the future!

She works in an enchanted tea house and while trying to get her PI business off and running, inadvertently released some dagurs (vampire like zombies) into her small town. Her and her troop of friends (both dead and alive) work together to get rid of them. This book really is a perfect blend of sci fi without overly geeking out and Jo Ann Carson is a great writer with moments in there where her writing was...well, pure magic. She's definitely someone I will read again and I'm looking forward to the next installment! Thank you Netgalley for a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.

    Cute read! This is a spin-off of another series. I would read that series first, there is a lot of backstory. Ahhh lands her first case! However, she has to deal with a nasty draugr and a magic book. Eric is determined to find a way to be human again even if it means doing something dark. Lots going on in the book!

    Fall in love with a ghost! This story by Jo-Ann Carson hit just the right balance between love story and mystery. Set in the Pacific Northwest, you could actually believe that the haunted tea house and Graystone Manor existed. You will fall in love with the characters Abby and Eric as they work side by side to solve the mystery of the missing diamonds.

    I have not read a book previously by this author, but after reading this one, I will definitely read more. This book was a fun foray into magic, ghosts, and mayhem. I really liked Abby and Eric, although I have to admit at times I would have liked to yell at them for making a few dumb decisions, but this served to make the characters more real to me. And, yes, since Eric is a Viking, he has some antiquated ideas about women, but he handled Abby well.

There was a good plot, and although the mystery wasn’t the center of the book, it kept you entertained but I do think this book was more character-driven. If you like light paranormal mysteries/paranormal romance with great characters, you will like this one. Highly recommend!

    Mystery and mayhem Loved the characters, although reading about something that happened but did not was strange. Lots of strange goings on with a ghost who wants to be alive again, dangerous ghosts who want to eat humans and a local mystery. It helps the ghost who wants to live again but is sexy as. The main character is a modern day woman who has a soft but scared side.

    Original review posted on my blog From Ink to Paper I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Book rating a 3.5 out of 5. I am torn on this book, I have to say I liked it more in the beginning and then by the end I was slightly annoyed with it. I think one thing that started this was when Abby got the second voice in her head and they started talking to each other. It just seemed like a weird move and was more annoying than funny or helpful to the plot.

I am torn on this book, I have to say I liked it more in the beginning and then by the end I was slightly annoyed with it. I think one thing that started this was when Abby got the second voice in her head and they started talking to each other. It just seemed like a weird move and was more annoying than funny or helpful to the plot. I liked the idea of the book and what it was trying to go for. However, in the realm of other mysteries with ghosts I don’t know that I would pick this above others. It has potential though and I feel like knowing what happens next would be good. You are left with a couple slight cliff hangers wonder what is going to happen to Abby and Erich; I did like the chemistry that they with each other. I thought that in the beginning Abby made me laugh with her personality and everything, just until that spark showed up. The supporting characters were pretty good, you don’t have a ton of background but that is okay. I think my favorite was the gross draguer because I was just imagining what she looked like. Although it seemed like they were meaning more vampire like and that isn’t what I pictured her as, instead I imagined more of a zombie like corpse but etherial like a ghost. The writing overall was well done, the story was easy to follow and it moved along nicely. There was romance, some twists, some sarcastic banter, and some adventure. I do think the ending left you wanting to find out what is going to happen with the twists that have happened to Abby and Erich. So I would definitely like to continue on to see where it goes.
