Wicked Haints


As a native Savannahian it was great to read about our "ways" and see them translated to modern day - well as modern as Savannah will allow. Bovi obviously did her research. It's a great read and I highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in The Old South and Low Country. Ark Royal

I really enjoyed this book. I curled up with it on a rainy afternoon and let it take me away to haunted Savannah! I have never visited Savannah yet the author is able to make me feel like I am there. Her love and intrigue of the city is apparent in her writing! I especially love all of the intricate details she adds that only someone who lives in the area would know. She has cooked up the perfect combination of humor and fright in this extremely enjoyable read. I highly recommend it and am anxiously awaiting her next book! caracast75

Dead Man's Fingers


The scenes in the book came to life with each word I read and the characters from the student on the top floor and her friends, the policeman, the tourists and the Savannah Strangler were all easily pictured especially the cold dead fingers trying to strangle Victorian prostitutes, which of course no longer existed. The hilarity continues right to the end of the book. Certainly a good read as far as Iím concerned, and very entertaining. LAS Reviewer

Dead Manís Fingers by JK Bovi is an entertaining read. It is indeed a ghost story but unlike any I have ever read. Set in Savannah, the author throws in lots of the areaís folk lore and culture which I find charming. It is a quick, easy read and full of quirky characters and plot twists. If you like Christopher Mooreís books, you will enjoy this one. - LibraryThing - reading_fox

Zombies Y'all!


There is much more to this story than just these basics. I felt that the book started slow, but later, I realized that I would need all this background information. I sincerely hope that this review illustrates the element of fun that ran throughout the story. As a children's book, I can recommend it, especially since there was nothing crude or explicit, and there was no foul language. Java Davis, author

Many strange things have happened on (and under) the streets of Savannah, Georgia. Failed, Colonial botany experiments gone wrong couldn't seem too far-fetched in our city's history. Especially, if those experiments affected our ghost population and turned them all into ghost-zombies! JK Bovi takes us on a fun-filled romp through Savannah in this youthful tale of zombie apocalypse action! Young readers will enjoy the humor and the downright craziness in Zombies Y'all!" Josh Vasquez- author Savannah Zombie Novel Series

I liked this book. I'm a sucker for originality, and boy was it unique. The writing was good, the characters were interesting. This was a little more childlike than I expected. Heavy on humor, light on horror. Would recommend. Kids could easily share this with parents. Gisele Walko

Heels & Souls


This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review. Laura Collison

What a delightful and fun read! There is nothing "slo" about this "Slo-vannah" ghostly tale. Just when I thought the story was winding down, it took an unexpected turn. I enjoyed that the author brings back the charming and amusing characters from her previous books. I felt as if I had encountered my old and endearing friends once again. Pick it up and enjoy the ride. You'll be glad you did. Solsticed
