    • (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Kindle Scout.)“Even in my state of paralysis, and beyond the fact that it was evident my father had not done this to himself, I realized something else was not right with the scene: there was no blood.”This was a YA horror/mystery story featuring cannibalism.I felt quite sorry for Lisa, discovering her father murdered must have been awful for her, and to then have to go and live with an uncle that s [...]


    • In the Graveyard Antemortem by Stephen Stromp is another great Kindle scout book. It mixes a great mystery with a gentle touch of horror blending in great characters and a good plot. I enjoyed it from the very first page. Kept me interested and although it seems to be a young adult novel, I think all adults will love it too. Good job.


    • Overall - 3.5 starsStory - 3.5 starsNarration - n/a starsX Factor - 4 stars (for being the second craziest story I've ever read)This story was, shall we say, entertaining . The first part was a typical YA mystery, but with dead bodies and gore (because it takes place in a huge morturary/cemetery complex). Then comes the rest of the story and another mystery. This part was where it got crazy. It felt like the author fell off the plot wagon and started adding in crazy stuff and situations before h [...]


    • I received a copy of this title from the author for review.Ten Second Synopsis:When Lisa's father is brutally murdered, she decides to stop at nothing to bring his killer to justice. What she doesn't count on is being whisked away to live with an estranged uncle in his vast funeral home, where more than a few mysteries are playing out around her.The first thing you need to do before reading this one is suspend your disbelief. This is meant to be entertainment, not a reflection of reality. It too [...]



    • We are introduced to Lisa, who is about to turn 18. She’s heading off to school with her best friend, Tina. It’s an idyllic scene as her mechanic father jokes and waves them off. When Lisa gets back from school the house and garage are eerily quiet. It’s then that she discovers her father’s corpse, chest cut open and bloodless.Throughout the book there is considerable examination of Lisa’s family and their relationships. Her father has been a single parent since Lisa was young. Her bro [...]


    • I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Here goes.This book blew me away! It's so wonderful to have a fresh take on a classic genre. I adore ghost stories, love a good mystery and have a never ending affection for big creepy houses and anything paranormal. This book included all of these things (sort of), but did it in such a vibrant new way, I was hooked!!! I think I have a new favorite author to add to my list. Thank you!!


    • I couldn't finish this. I was so excited to read this book. The cover art is amazing, the premise is phenomenal, and the summary on the back of the book was so well done. I should have known something was up when there was only one library in the country that had a copy listed on worldcat. I asked my library to purchase it, confident the book would be an excellent addition. Unfortunately, I don't think the book lived up to its potential. T_TI couldn't even get through the first 3 chapters. The a [...]


    • Good horror thriller In the Graveyard Antemortem by Steven Stromp is a mystery thriller that transitions into a horror thriller. After Lisa's dad is viciously murdered she is determined to solve his murder. This is a good read overall and the book did not disappoint. I would definitely read it again.During the summer before Lisa turns 18, her dad is murdered at his auto garage. She goes to live with her estranged uncle at his huge funeral complex called Grand Hallow, until she turns 18 and can r [...]


    • I won a copy of this book. I had never read the author before, nor heard of him. I was quite engrossed in this book from start to finish. I read it in two sittings. The story is told through the eyes of a 17 year old. And it's very well told. I never knew what the next twist or turn was going to be. The book also made me laugh out loud a few times. Very much worth the read.


    • This is a freaky, sometimes gory story that reads like a B-level horror movie. It's rather crazy, but keeps you reading to find out what kind of bizarre situation is going to happen next. I was a little disappointed that Lisa didn't question her blood "talent" a bit more--why she was able to do what she could do. In all, though, a story horror fans are sure to love.



    • Love this book, was surprised by the ending. Didn't expect it to end the way it did. But was a great read. Would highly recommend this book. So good a hard to put down kind of book.



    • Pretty goodDifferent sort of book, needs some polish but, I think the author has great potential. Off to try another one.


    • In The Graveyard Antemortem is another fantastic book everyone should read. Stephen Stromp really knows how to bring the scare factor. The main character, Lisa, finds her father dead. It was not an ordinary death because the blood was missing from his body. She just knew it could not be suicide. Since she was only 17, Lisa was forced to go live with her uncle. She had never met her uncle, and thought it was odd when he offered to pay for the entire funeral. Her older brother was in no state to e [...]


    • Creepy CoolDefinitely worth reading. Very creepy and a little disturbing. I love that in a book. I am hoping for a sequel.


    • 1985, Ruthsford. Christina “Tina” Cashmere (Lisa’s BFF), was giving Lisa Jacobs (narrator, daughter/sister) a ride to the HS.Dale Jacobs (dad, service station owner, Catholic) had been murdered in the garage. Alice Perigord CPS told Lisa; Richard Jacobs (son/older brother) was not capable or reliable enough to take care of her.The only option was to live with Uncle Clayton Jacobs (Grand Hallow, MI).Dale would be buried at the cemetery Clayton owned there. Sheriff Sternhardt was doing the i [...]


    • This book starts with seventeen year old Lisa finding her father brutally murdered and his chest cut open, blood drained. (Yep, got my attention.) As she is a minor, she is sent to live with her Uncle Clayton, with whom her father had a mysterious falling out. Her uncle runs Grand Hallow, a huge funeral/mortuary business. Unconvinced that the police will solve her father's murder, she decides to investigate herself, starting with Grand Hallow.I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I really like [...]


    • I was very fortunate to receive "In the Graveyard Antemortem" by Stephen Stromp for free for my honest review. I completely enjoyed this book! The premise had me hooked from the start – an almost 18 year old girl finds her father brutally murdered and, as she is still a minor, must move in with her creepy, estranged uncle – a man who owns the largest mortuary/cemetery in the area. What great scary, gory fun! I liked the story immediately, as it is told in first person by the main character- [...]


    • I was sent this book for early review. I finished yesterday and, not going to lie, didn't really like it. I had such high expectations and I didn't want to have to give it a bad review. The characters were very one dimensional, except for Lisa. Lisa, however, really confused me. The tasting people's emotions through blood thing was just really weird. I also felt like there were a lot of clichés in this story: the tragic story behind Tina's home, the evil twins, the creepy mortician It all just [...]


    • Excellent!You couldn't never imagine the twists this book have! It is a mix of paranormal with very boring normal characters, some of them a little bit psycho But what can you expect from a mortuary employee with criminal instincts?Well, you have a young heroine who sometimes is just like a normal teen, with a friend that was sometimes bold and sometimes a little bit slow minded. A bunch of suspect characters that, in the end, are very innocents and some others that aren't so.In a pair of words: [...]


    • Seventeen-year-old Lisa Jacobs is determined to solve her father’s gruesome murder. But before she can investigate in her own small town, she is forced to spend the summer with her Uncle Clayton, the owner of Grand Hallow, a massive funeral and mortuary operation the size of a small city. Her move to Grand Hallow only deepens the mystery as she begins to suspect the strange and chilling occurrences there are linked to her father’s death. With the help of her acid-tongued best friend and dead [...]


    • This is one of my favorite books. The pace and scope of the story are great. The twists are continuously surprising and the characters are simple but likeable. This book was never too complicated or too descriptive but gave enough story to really get my imagination flowing. I liked it so much I'm having a hard time trying to find something to read next.


    • I really liked the book's easy to read writing style. The story was interesting and made it hard for me to put the book down at times. It was a bit gory in ways I wasn't expecting, but I still liked it overall.


    • I really enjoyed this book and the unique mix of the mystery and horror genres. I also liked Lisa as as a strong female character. I don't often read mystery/suspense, but there was enough gore, insane characters and intrigue to keep me hooked


    • Wow!!This book was really great. I could not set it down. Kept me guessing. Well written with characters that were believable


    • Horror? Cannabalism? Sounds rocking right? No. Stromp dropped the ball on this one. What should have been scary and gross because, like, cannabalism! Was just boring and flat.
