"Ghost Maven is a supernatural mystery, a coming of age story with romance, faith, and hope. The biggest theme in the novel is what it means to be alive, focusing on Alice as she tries to navigate her grief for her mother, her new relationship with a ghost, and her family. As history, a curse, and ghosts plague the town, life and death are tackled in a unique way. Tony Lee Moral doesn't shy away from his characters questioning belief, and they are confronted with whether they need to see to believe, or believe to see. The plot comes full circle by the end, but the last page will leave you wanting more. It's clear this is just the beginning for Alice. Ghost Maven is a must-read with strong prose that carries an eerie undercurrent, slowly delving into details as the mystery unfolds. "
