About One Ghost Per Serving
Possessed by Rex, a mischievous spirit, Eric Snackerge’s life has careened out of control. Losing his scholarship and getting blacklisted from the legal profession are just the start - now his best-friend-turned-enemy is in danger of stealing away his family, too.
An unusual contest may be his last chance to make his daughter’s dreams come true. But he’ll have to overcome his own self-doubt — not to mention the seemingly impossible odds — in order to achieve that goal.
As Eric and his ghostly companion soon learn, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill sweepstakes. When the sponsors begin dispatching spy cameras, attack helicopters, and the kitchen sink - all to make sure that Eric doesn’t get any further - it becomes clear that the contest is only the first phase of a much larger, sinister plan to spread a supernatural pathogen throughout the food supply.
Do Eric and Rex have what it takes to foil the villains’ plan and protect the Snackerge family from becoming the next victims?
Reviews for One Ghost Per Serving
Earlier this year I read Nina Post's debut novel The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse. It was a fun, diverting read, with some issues. So I was excited to see how Post had progressed as a writer with her second novel One Ghost Per Serving. The short verdict? A lot. The issues I had with her debut were gone from her sophomore effort. What remains is a highly entertaining story of a man, a ghost and a hunt for justice. In contrast to The Last Condo Board..., One Ghost Per Serving definitely does have some deeper themes underlying the [...]
"I'm not quite sure how to categorise this novel-although I give it 5 stars because it is thoroughly enjoyable, memorable, quite thought-provoking, and I'm happy to have read it-so I'll call it ""comedic psychological paranormal."" Following the foibles of poor Eric, and his misguided fellow characters, kept me chuckling all the way through, even though I don't usually enjoy comic relief. The author did a wonderful job of delving into the psychologies-and the psyches-of her various characters
So it took me quite a while to start this one. I remember getting an email asking me to kindly do a review for this novel and I said I would do it in a week… Yep. Miserably failed. But, once I broke the spine and began my reading adventure, I enjoyed every second of it.I discovered Nina Post’s work with The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse. Her humor and her prose made all the difference. What you read is fresh, young, full of play on words and cultural references. I must say this story made me smile with [...]
My Thoughts: This book.... what can I say about this book? It was full of simply ludicrous nonsense of the best type. The stores, for instance: one sold tools, plus was a bakery and tanning salon. Another was called Redemption and Beer. Then there is the indoor shooting range/restaurant where Eric works part of the time. The various entities and spirits that Eric interacts with are an absolute hoot, and their names – and the names by which Eric calls the various people around him – made me laugh repeatedly.
