Eerie & suspenseful. Stevens brings in old south superstitions to mix with a great suspenseful mystery. This all started with Amelia restoring an old cemetery in Charleston, where she found herself right in the middle of the path of a serial killer. This is where she meets John Devlin, the detective working the case. But he has his own mystery surrounding him, the death of his wife and daughter. After taking a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains in book two, where we discover Amelia's roots, we have now returned to Charleston, and back to Devlin. The mystery surrounding Devlin is not simple, it has many layers, suspects, and lots of supernatural elements. If you are not from the south some of the aspects of this series may be confusing, but I think it's all blended well with the core mystery of the book. Stevens has a real knack for the this kind of mystery, I really love her style. And I'm really happy to find out that this series is going to continue on past this trilogy. Amelia is a great character, and each cemetery she restores has its own story to tell. Give Graveyard Queen a try, I think anyone with a taste for suspense will enjoy them.

5 stars for a completely originally concept (a graveyard restorer who sees ghosts) but 2 stars for a very repetitive writing style that pulled me out of the story. It felt like the first paragraph of each chapter was a summary of the last chapter! Also, she does such a great job of creating an eerie, spooky atmosphere (I attribute one bad dream to this book!) but it's undermined when she then also tells us that it's eerie and spooky. I do think I will read the other books just to get the full story. I was also surprised to see it categorized as paranormal romance as it felt much more like a mystery with one sex scene than a romance novel.

I was not impressed by this - the 3rd of Amanda Stevens "The Graveyard Queen" series. I did really enjoy the 1st - The Restorer". The 2nd "the Kingdom" was alright, but left you hanging.
But this book was dull as if she knew the 1st was good and would attract readers to buy the next two.
I'll go back to Heather Grahams Books - I haven't been disappointed in her Ghost/Romance style yet and have read most all that she has written.

Amelia is back in Charleston and trying her best to avoid Devlin. But it isnt so easy to do when she thinks about him constantly. It doesnt help that ghosts keep leading her to him.

His dead friend, nicknamed the Prophet, who we met in the first book, is calling the shots this time. He just wants to rest, but he thinks the fact that he doesnt remember who his killer is might be why he cant. He wants Amelia to figure out who killed him. In fact, he even blackmails Amelia a bit, just to ensure shell help him out. But despite that, I liked him, and I liked his ending-it seemed appropriate.

This book has a lot more reveals than the other two, and I found so much of it incredibly interesting. This one also has a lot more action, so to speak. I liked seeing Amelia make a friend, and I hope that trend continues as she carves out a spot for herself in Charleston.


Loved all 3 of her books in this series. She is writing 4,5, and 6 to go with this series. I am very excited and wait like an expecting mom....interesting subject to write about. Found no other writer to write on this job description. All 3 copies sit in my personal library.
