A paranormal conference goes haywire when a man channels his dead wife and disturbs demons in an Appalachian inn. Inspired by an actual paranormal conference in 2008. "Always surprises and always entertains."--Jonathan Maberry, Patient Zero

"Keep both hands on your pants, because Nicholson is about to scare them off."-- J.A. Konrath/Jack Kilborn

A paranormal conference at the most haunted hotel in the Southern Appalachian mountains . . .

A man’s promise to his late wife that he’d summon her spirit . . .

A daughter whose imagination goes to dark places . . .

And demonic evil lurking in the remote hotel’s basement, just waiting to be awoken.

When Digger Wilson brings his paranormal team Spirit Seekers International to the White Horse Inn, he is skeptical that his dead wife will keep her half of the bargain. He doesn’t believe in ghosts. But when one of the conference guests channels a mysterious presence and an Ouija board spells out a pet phrase known only to Digger and his wife, his convictions are challenged.

And when guests start to disappear, Digger and his daughter Kendra must face the circle of demons that view the hotel as their personal playground. Because soon the inn will be closing for good, angels can’t be trusted, and demons don’t like to play alone . . .

I'm so glad that Scott Nicholson gave me the opportunity to join his blog tour and the chance to read his book Speed Dating With The Dead.  I really did enjoy this book quite a bit.  I have to admit that it was a little spooky/freaky/gross at times.  Digger was a complicated character and I wanted to like him but he was just so weak that I ended up mad at him most of the time, then I would feel bad for him again and forgive him.  I loved Kendra, Digger's daughter.  She is tough and bitter, but with pretty good reason.  The side characters were great, some were funny, others annoying, a really great mix that kept me entertained and never bored.  This book is suspenseful at times and hard to put down.  Not recommend to read at night especially if your afraid of the dark! I would say you should definitely add this to your to be read list.  Enjoy!
