This is the final book in the Maggie series. It was just as good, if not better then the first two. With a new family, Naomi needs to find out what this ghost needs before it once again ruins her life. As usual I was left on the edge of my seat with more twists and turns. I was sad to finish because I became so invested in all their lives. Great end to a great trilogy.
Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3) by Mya O’Malley was an emotional read. After following Naomi through two other books I have become very attached to her. Naomi has a wonderful spirit and is such a great character, I felt like she really comes into her element here. There is another mystery to solve and it weaves in so naturally into the story. I love the thrilling elements that are embedded in this paranormal read.
Naomi has returned in the 3rd installment of the Maggie series, to once again find closure for spirits that are in need of peace.
As she settles into her life with Bryce and Holly, she’s feeling like she’s finally able to rest. She’s had an eventful year or two and its reasonable to say she could use some serious quiet time. All does not stay quiet as she’s revisited by a spirit from her childhood, Lillie. Even when she had interacted with Lillie as a child she understood that there were parts of her that were not ok, mean spirited and downright scary. As she got older, she no longer heard from Lillie and in fact, she had pushed those memories so far down that she had forgotten. But it was one of those moments of exploring that she became face to face with a harsh reality, Lillie wanted something from her. But what is it?
Along the way, she’s asked to help out on a special case where a woman is killed. There aren’t many clues and it believed that Naomi’s special abilities can help them find out who did it and why. Combined with the difficulties of Lillie’s tormenting, her new relationship with Holly and the new case, Naomi feels like this will all be her undoing. How can she find out who was truly behind what happened to Lillie, the homicide victim and save her family at the same time? It’s one thing after another and she’s determined to not let anyone take her happy ending away.
I loved this series, even the moments where it startled me! My heart ached for Lillie, even when I wanted to scream and yell at her. The emotional pull with this whole story got me and I couldn’t put it down. It’s so well written, and so spot on with the ghostly moments. It’s the perfect read for anyone that loves more realistic paranormal books with a side of suspense and romance!
This series has grown on me. I can’t believe that this is the last book of the Lillie trilogy. I absolutely love a good paranormal romance but this author exceeded all of my expectations. I was so excited when I got this book I stopped everything and started to read it immediately. It only took me a few hours to devour this amazing story.
Naomi is feeling a little peace now in her life. She is loving her new little family. Naomi thought her life would be normal again but when her officer friend comes to her for her help in a case she is back at it again. She feels like she can help solve this horrible crime. Naomi then finds her step-daughter talking to a new friend she calls Lillie. She can tell that this small spirit is up to no good. Naomi learns some secrets that may make her closer to Lillie than she thought. Will Naomi be able to help this spirit or will it be too much for her? Also will Naomi have the love of her life by her side or will he do everything to protect his daughter?
Lillie is the grand finale of Mya O’Malley’s Maggie Trilogy and what a finale it is! If you love paranormal suspense and love stories than congratulations, you have hit the jackpot AND you absolutely need to read the series in order as the previous books have been building up to it all!
The journey we have been on with Naomi has been an interesting one, she has been through a lot and Lillie really tests her and she realises what her destiny is. Naomi can see and hear spirits that come to her for help so that they could have some sort of disclosure. In Lillie Naomi has married Bryce and she has hoped to have some time to find her normal and enjoy her married life and get to settle into her role as a stepmother to Holly.
The writer takes us on a rollercoaster ride that she has thrown in couple of crazy twists and developments and I truly hope that there will be a spin-off as she hints at when wrapping up the trilogy as I love the paranormal genre and her writing style!
I give Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3) by Mya O’Malley, 4 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers of previous books in series.*
Maggie is now married to the love of her life and adores her step daughter. She is happy in this house and home they have made together. But part of her misses her ghosts. Be careful what you wish for. Enter Lillie, a Holly’s new friend, and a little girl bent of making Lillie’s life a living hell. Why is she doing this? Can Maggie help and save the wonderful life she now has?
I’ve enjoyed this series and this book is a great addition to it. Maggie is yet again up against supernatural things that are out of her control. There are many surprises along the way to keep you guessing and you will not want to put the book down until you are finished. This book wraps up the series nicely, although I’m not completely sure I agree wholly with the way it’s wrapped up. That of course is just my opinion.
The characters are well written and the story is great from the very beginning. I highly recommend reading this book and this series to anyone who likes a good ghost story and a mystery or several to solve.
Review by @erinwolf79
Lillie is the third and final book in Mya O’Malley’s Maggie Trilogy. This series has gripped me from start to finish – so much so that I started reading Lillie within a day of finishing Naomi.
The series’ protagonist, Naomi, is particularly sensitive to ghosts and throughout the series has helped a number of them avenge their deaths and find peace. Naomi has had her abilities since she was a child, something which is brought to the forefront in this book when her supposed imaginary friend returns to her life. When Lillie’s mischief threatens to tear Naomi’s new family apart, Naomi has to figure out what exactly it is the ghost needs to be able to move on.
Like the others, this book is a real page-turner. Again, I couldn’t put it down and had to read it in one sitting. It’s short enough to keep my attention, but packed full of story. Lillie takes us further back in time than the previous books, while also giving Naomi a glimpse of what lies in her, Holly and Bryce’s future. It’s got history, mystery, tragedy, romance and so much more.
For me, this is a five-star book. It’s definitely worth reading the series as a whole – the other books are also fantastic and the stories very much lead on from each other. I’d recommend it to fans of ghost stories and murder mysteries.
Lillie (Maggie Trilogy book 3) by May O’Malley is a 5 star read.
Naomi is now happily married to Bryce and living with him and his daughter Holly, she still has her connection to the spirits so when Holly mentions an imaginary friend called Lillie it reminds Naomi of the angry spirit of a little girl she knew as a child, when it begins to look like it’s the same child Naomi knows she must figure out what this ghost wants before it costs her more than she’s willing to lose.
It’s been a few years since I read the first 2 books in this trilogy and I’m really glad I took the time to finally finish it, the author is a great storyteller, her characters are well thought out and really kept my attention on the pages in front of me.
The only real problem with this book was that it was impossible to put down! Great to be absorbed by a wonderful story, not so good when you’re supposed to be sleeping! Much like the Harry Potter series, each of the Maggie Trilogy books got darker as the series progressed and Lillie in particular kept me on the edge of my seat. I had to know how the story unravelled and was very pleased with the results.
