Review copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review
Dead over Heels is a bit more of a love story than I usually find myself reading, but in this case I couldn’t help it. I kept seeing such good reviews and had to check it out for myself.
Veronica wants to meet a nice guy but she has no luck. She does have an interest in ‘magic’ and the supernatural, so a candle ritual to meet a guy feels about right. Why not? What does she have to lose? Whether it was the candle ritual or a twist of fate she meets Sebastian. They have an instant connection and have both lost a loved one.
Veronica and Sebastian were characters I could easily relate to for the following reasons. It’s not often you feel you’ve known someone forever after just meeting, or the way you meet is just too crazy to be a coincidence, or when life throws you a rare and random chance at happiness you take it and don’t look back. After meeting Sebastian, life for Veronica is looking up and she thinks everything is great until a dinner date at restaurant turns strange.
Where is the horror you ask? I know, I review scary books not love stories. Dead over Heels has death, murder and betrayal, it’s not all puppies and rainbows. The story takes several dark turns I hadn’t expected plus a twist ending for Veronica. The ghosts of her past come back and their connection to the couple is more than either could imagine. Dead over Heels didn’t disappoint me. The good words I’d been hearing were right and this book is a fun read.

Veronica’s first date with Sebastian not only stirs up a powerful attraction, but also a series of supernatural events that will tear them apart.
After countless hours of dead end online dating, Veronica meets up with Sebastian at a reportedly haunted restaurant, since he knows she has a fascination with the paranormal. While enjoying their meals and each other’s company, they share a shocking supernatural experience. Their romantic connection is overshadowed by the ghosts of their own pasts that threaten to destroy their budding relationship. Veronica decides she must return to the restaurant to face her past and dig up more answers. Unfortunately, she realizes she must go back, this time with a reluctant Sebastian. In the end, they join forces against the evil that stands between them, but will they make it out alive?
