About this audiobook

The dead can speak. They need her to listen.

Ever since Riley Thomas, reluctant medium extraordinaire, accidentally released a malevolent spirit from a Ouija board when she was thirteen, she’s taken a hard pass on scary movies, haunted houses, and cemeteries. Twelve years later, when her best friend pressures her into spending a paranormal investigation weekend at the infamous Jordanville Ranch—former home of deceased serial killer Orin Jacobs—Riley’s still not ready to accept the fact that she can communicate with ghosts.

Shortly after their arrival at the ranch, the spirit of a little boy contacts Riley; a child who went missing—and was never found—in 1973.

In order to put the young boy’s spirit to rest, she has to come to grips with her ability. But how can she solve a mystery that happened a decade before she was born? Especially when someone who knows Orin’s secrets wants to keep the truth buried—no matter the cost.

Content warning: Adult language, sexual situations, discussions about sexual assault.

    So cheesy romance. 30% mystery & ghost. 70% romance and thrusting. Avoid if you don't like romance novels

Our gal of the story really can see and hear ghosts but is fearful. She hasn't told anyone since A terrible incident when she was 13.But things start up again when she gets there. She sees a child not associated with the case. He wants her help. He follows her home. This is only the start. It is spooky and quite the thriller!Warning, this has sexual assault in it.

    The Forgotten Child by Melissa Erin JacksonA Riley Thomas Mystery #1Excellent debut novel that was a joy to read! This book was a delight from beginning to end with just enough creepiness and horror without being over the top. With a reluctant medium hiding from her talent and ghosts that want to and do contact her she begins to realize that she might have a gift that will help rather than harm. With one small boy ghost to find peace for, a malevolent serial killer ghost on the prowl, good friends to support her, a creepy stalker, a victim of the serial killer – one that got away and a romance that was normal and healthy and fun to watch develop…well…I have to say this is an author and series I am really looking forward to reading more of! Thank you to NetGalley and Ringtail Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
