Ghost Hand by Ripley Patton

Fun Thriller with a Cool Premise

Ghost Hand is a fun read with an intriguing premise. Sometime in the very near future, a rare condition develops in which people are occasionally born with “ghost” parts. The main character, Liv, has a ghost hand. She can use it in the same way anyone else uses their hand, but recently it has begun to evidence a mind of its own…

It might sound like horror, but it’s more of an action thriller. Without any spoilers, Liv has to figure out what’s going on with her hand while evading a bunch of ghost-hating bad guys, dealing with the requisite hot-guy-she-can’t-figure-out, and dodging a mother who has never been able to accept the way she was born.

We were intrigued enough by the paranormal mysteries that we would have liked to see the book delve more heavily into that arena. (Hey, it’s a GHOST HAND; how cool is that!) But hopefully the author will go there later in the series. For now, it’s a solid opener, and well worth the read.

(The first book in the series is FREE on Kindle. What better incentive to try it than that?)
