Book Review & Giveaway: She Never Got to Say Goodbye by Ica Iova

She Never Got to Say Goodbye_Banner (1)




When Olivia trades her promising career for a more domestic lifestyle as a wife and mother, she expects many things but never to see ghosts much less be one.

Her life with her handsome husband, Brandon, a successful criminal lawyer, starts as a happy one, but following a tragedy, guilt, alcohol and drugs crush their blissful world in a hurry. One minute Olivia is planning to leave the marriage and the next she’s floating at the foot of her son’s bed. Dead. Murdered. And all evidence points to Brandon as the prime suspect.

She is angry and determined to make him pay, but soon, she learns that if she wants justice, she must follow the clues that reach back into Brandon’s past.

Suspenseful, romantic and awash in the afterlife thrill, She Never Got To Say Goodbye captures the power of love and friendship.

Available on Amazon.

My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

She Never Got to Say Goodbye is a love story, a murder mystery, and a ghost story all in one. Once I got halfway through, it was difficult to put down.

The story about Olivia and Brandon starts out sweet and his proposal is one of the best I’ve read or heard. Everything happened so fast, though, because months were skipped between chapters. It’s rare that I wish for more in a book but in this case, I would have enjoyed a little more detail.

The second half of She Never Got to Say Goodbye is fast paced and suspenseful. There are some twists, some sit on the edge of your seat moments, but there are also tender moments.

She Never Got to Say Goodbye has humor, joy, pain, love, hate, despair, and revenge. I definitely recommend if for anyone who likes the paranormal.
