Cover Thoughts: It nothing that belongs with the overall series covers. But then again none of the series covers match because of the switch in publishing companies but this one is just overall different. it’s okay but the only reason why I picked this up was because it’s about Gabriel.
The disappearing hitchhiker is one of the hoariest urban legends, and no one knows that better than Gabriel Walsh, a lawyer who grew up on folklore and myth. When author of books on the supernatural Patrick brings Gabriel a case of a hitchhiking woman in white who vanished on a country road after accepting a ride from a businessman, Gabriel knows the Cainsville elder is just trying to wheedle into his good graces. But Gabriel is a man in need of a mystery, one that will get him back into someone else’s good graces. His investigator, Olivia Taylor-Jones, has blown town supposedly on a simple vacation. But when she left there was a rift between them and…he misses her.
Gabriel is well aware the only thing Olivia loves more than a good mystery is a weird one, and this hitchhiker case more than fits the bill. As Gabriel digs into the story, he’s forced to face ghosts of his own and admit that the woman in white isn’t the only one who has lost her way.
With Lost Souls, New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong weaves an unmissable novella-length tale connected to her fan-favorite Cainsville series.
I RARELY pick up the novellas of a series. I’m just not interested in them. I like having them but I rarely read them. weird, I know. But the only reason why I picked this one up was because it’s about my main squeeze and I was in need of something before the final book in this series which I LOVE!
So in this novella it’s just a mystery BUT it’s a mystery with Gabriel point of view for almost all of it. So I was all about it! I Love Gabriel, always have because of his rough character and yet when he feels, he feels deep. I love his lack of ability to do and say what he needs out of fear of rejection and so he runs the other way but this whole series is about changing him through experiences. He just isn’t what he makes himself out to be, and I love him.
I loved the mystery that has me dying for the last book in this series. With Gabriel, Liv and interestingly enough-Patrick. Patrick comes with a case for Gabriel for his own gain and then Gabriel only takes it thinking of Liv and their complication relationship. Well Patrick gets left in the dust while Gabriel and Liv take over and it’s just so like them.
Overall I loved the ghost mystery. I loved this little tease before the grand finale of the Cainsville series which I’m dying and crying inside at the same time.
