Spirit and Dust (Goodnight Family #2) by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Spirit and Dust
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Daisy Goodnight can speak to the dead. It’s not the result of a head injury or some near-death experience. She was just born that way. And she’s really good at it. Good enough to help the police solve the occasional homicide.

But helping the local authorities clear cold cases is one thing. Being whisked out of chemistry class by the FBI and flown to the scene of a murder/kidnapping in Minnesota? That’s the real deal.

Before the promotion can go to Daisy’s head, she’s up to her neck in trouble. The spirits are talking, and they’re terrified. There’s a real living girl in danger. And when Daisy is kidnapped by a crime boss with no scruples about using magic—and Daisy—to get what he wants, it looks like hers is the next soul on the line.

My rating: 2.25 of 5 stars

Spirit and Dust(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
17-year-old Daisy can talk to ghosts, or ‘remnants’ as she calls them. For this reason the FBI like to use her for certain tough cases, even if she’s not overjoyed about it!
Now an 18-year-old rich girl – Alexis, has been kidnapped, and the only witness is her body guard who was shot and killed during the kidnapping.
Who kidnapped Alexis? And can Daisy find out before it’s too late?

When I first started this book I thought it was much better than the first one in the series, but unfortunately I lost interest around the 30% mark.

I did like Daisy. She had much more of a personality compared to her cousin Amy, and I liked how she tried to get the job done, even under difficult conditions.

The storyline in this started out okay, but then I lost interest. When this was a missing person’s case, and Daisy was using her skills to try and find Alexis this was good, but when we started getting missing Egyptian artefacts being thrown into the mix, and random trips to university research departments etc. I just got bored.
There was a bit of an obvious romance thrown in, but I didn’t really enjoy it. And why Daisy felt the need to kiss someone who wouldn’t kiss her back (and think that that was awesome) I’m not really sure.
The ending was okay I suppose, but I had really lost interest by that point and was just glad that it was over.
Overall; I lost interest,
4.5 out of 10.
