Blog Tour Stop & Review: Soul in Present Condition

The Real Estate Paranormal Mystery Series
By Mary E. Merrell

Book Three: Soul in Present Condition


Divorced. Check. Ghost Whisperer. Check. Human Servant. Check. Great. Check.

Real estate agent Rosemary Fernandes never expected to inherit the ability to communicate with spirits, and she certainly didn’t expect her gift to attract the undead as well. Now Rosemary finds herself ghost whisperer to the lost souls stuck at their haunts and human servant to a gorgeous but aloof vampire Marcus Lyons.

Benito Cruz died with a dangerous secret, a secret that connects the ghost to Rosemary. Can Rosemary send the spirit to his final resting place before his past catches up with them, and can she convince the vampire helping spirits like Benito is her destiny?

When real estate and the supernatural come together it is murder.

My Review

Rosemary Fernandes is a real estate agent and a complex character. She is strong-willed, compassionate, communicates with lost souls; yet submissive to her master – a vampire named Marcus. I really appreciate how she attempts to maintain loyalty to Marcus while staying true to her natural gifts and helping spirits move on after their death. 

What she thought would be a normal home showing for clients turned into something more serious when lost soul, Benny Cruz, reaches out to her. Rosemary finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery and won’t stop digging for answers (despite her master's disapproval) until she solves the crime and helps Benny find peace.

Mary E. Merrell has done a fabulous job writing a story with a great balance of paranormal and mystery. I like how she has mixed vampires, spirits, and humans together in a suspenseful tale. I’m looking forward to Book Four in The Real Estate Paranormal Mystery Series!

Author Info

Mary E. Merrell writes Paranormal Mysteries and Young Adult Urban Fantasy. She has worked many jobs, but always had stories in her head. It wasn’t until she went into real estate and walked into that old, vacant home that The Real Estate Paranormal Mystery Series came to life. Fortunately, nothing spooky happened at the furniture store, or the first book might have been, “The Haunted Sofa." 

Mary E. Merrell’s plots are smooth and slightly dark, and her characters sinfully sweet. Try a little guilty pleasure with House Haunting, the first book in The Real Estate Paranormal Mystery Series. One reviewer called it “A good start to a new series.”

Her Young Adult series, Affinity is also humorous but deals with very real life themes. A reviewer said, “Love it. So different. A fun read.” 

Mary E. Merrell lives in the Central Valley of California with her husband, two dogs, and five cats. She has two grown sons. When she’s not writing, she’s gardening or playing soccer.
