Adopted sisters Lana Beth and Emma Jane are polar opposites, but when the same strange 'tattoo' suddenly appears and winds its way up their bodies within days of each other, they soon realise there's more to their relationship than they could ever have imagined.
Sent off to London for two weeks of 'work experience', the Morgan Sisters soon find themselves being initiated into the ancient Praxos Foundation, one that protects the innocent while fighting evil, both human and supernatural.
At the same time, Lana Beth and Emma Jane must also investigate why the sweet but sometimes pesky ghost of Josiah Grimshaw just won't leave them alone.

My review:

Suzy is a great storyteller! When she contacted me asking for the review I knew that this was going to be a enjoyable read. It truly was! The author is very good at creating both settings and characters and she definitely kept my interest from the first page.

The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw was well written and it is very suitable for all ages.


You meet with two very different adopted sisters Lana and Emma. Their background story is captivating and mysterious, both girls are literally delivered at their "parents'" doorstep. When Lana and Emma become 16, their lives start to change. First they get a strange tattoos which appear on both girls. Secondly, they are sent to London and meet up with people from Praxos.

Praxos is an ancient group of supernaturals fighting against evil. But nothing is as it seems. that is exactly what I love about this plot. The author kept surprising me with the twists and turns, not to mention the ghost of Josiah, who keeps bugging the Morgan sisters.

Another aspect of the plot which I loved where the descriptions. I usually get easily bored with long and detailed descriptive parts of the novel, but I think Suzy did a wonderful job to give the reader of a fantastic image of the settings and the world she created!


Let me start with saying that these two main characters were awesome! I giggled a lot and whenever they were having talks and dialogues together, I couldn't help myself  - I was smiling constantly. One of them - Lana, is a cute and girly young woman and Emma is sassy goth. Besides that, they have some great powers and abilities!

The novel was filled with great characters!


The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw is a wonderful book and a brilliant start for a series. Can't wait to read more about the Morgan sisters! I highly recommend The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw if you love entertaining, interesting and captivating reads!

5 Flowers!
5 stars!
