Product Description
Reclusive collector Cutter Merlin is seldom seen in Key West—lately, not at all. Officer Liam Beckett visits Merlin's curious house and discovers the gentleman in his study. In his death grip: a volume of occult lore and a reliquary. His eyes are wide with fright, his mouth a horrified rictus where spiders now dwell.

Kelsey Donovan returns to the old house to catalog her estranged grandfather's collection of artifacts and antiquities, vowing to see his treasures divested properly. But she cannot ignore the sense that she's being watched, the reports of malevolent black figures, the pervasive smell of death.

Is the Merlin house haunted, even cursed? Liam knows well that some ghost stories are true and he swears to protect Kelsey. But there are forces at work for whom one more life is a pittance to pay for their deepest desire…. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars I dont get the great reviews.
I thought this was one of the most poorly written novels I've ever read.It reminded me of something a high school student wrote for English class and got a D on.Stale, tedious dialogue, horribly stereotyped versions of elderly and gay characters, and a dumb plot line. Do yourself a favor and skip this one, unless, like me, you were entertained by how poor the writing was.I actually laughed at the stupidity in several spots.

5-0 out of 5 stars Heather Graham'sBone Island Trilogy
Absolutely loved this series.will very much miss the characters (especially Bartholemew) There are always a few suspects to keep you guessing almost to the end.

1-0 out of 5 stars I could not finish it.
I gave this book a chance based on the reviews here. This is the last time I will trust those. I want my money back.

5-0 out of 5 stars She did it again
Another great book by an amazing author. Is it any wonder my book shelf is full of Heather Graham stories? Romance, mystery, suspense and just enough paranormal thrown in to make you wonder what else or who else is really out there. Her characters came alive on the page. I was sorry it ended but am looking forward to whatever she creates next. Nice job, Ms. Graham.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ghost Series Rocks!!!
Heather's series of "Ghost" books is amazing. I looked forward to, and actually, CRAVED the next book!! Key West is a place of mystery, lore, and love.I love that she includes historical background on the Key's,and those who have lived and died there, in addition to the wonderful and amazing ghosts, and ghost stories that thrive there. I'm so sorry the trilogy has reached the end..but after all the trials and tribulations of all the heroes and heroines..Bartholamew finally ended up the winner! I would still, so love to hear the story of "The Lady in White" before she met her "privateer" in death. ... Read more

There are those who walk among us who are no longer alive, but not yet crossed over. They seek retribution…vengeance…to warn. Among the living, few intuit their presence.

Katie O'Hara is one who can.

As she's drawn deeper and deeper into a gruesome years-old murder, whispered warnings from a spectral friend become more and more insistent. But Katie must uncover the truth: could David Beckett really be guilty of his fiancée's murder?

Worse—the body count's rising on the Island of Bones, andthe dead seem to be reenacting some macabre tableaux from history. The danger is increasing by the moment—especially as Katie finds herself irresistibly drawn to David, who may be responsible for more than just one killing…. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Boring
I have officially given up on this series and Graham. No suspence. the characters are unlikeable and even irritating. A thriller that failed to thrill.

3-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable
I must admit that I haven't read the other books in this series nor have I read any other books by the author Heather Graham. So I had no expectations. While I didn't think this book is great by any means, I still enjoyed reading it. The writing has a nice style. While I probably won't be on the lookout for the other books in this series, I think Graham could well become a very popular author.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love the ghostly shivers
Heather Graham is getting into the paranormal and doing it very well indeed.I have been reading her books under all her AKA's for almost twenty years and have very seldom been less than enthused.I did get to meet her at a convention many years ago and was even more impressed.

The characters and story line are easily followed and understood.There were sub-stories but they were not distracting enough to lose the main plot lines and story.I am looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.

5-0 out of 5 stars great trilogy
Found the second book of the three and decided that I really wanted to read them in order.It isnot mandatory that they be read in order, but I always find it more fun that way.I have not finished the trilogy, as the last book is not yet out, but this has been a fun, fast and easy distraction in a busy life and world.I highly recommend these books.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good solid story
Took an afternoon to read this book.Plot was pretty interesting with lots of historical facts. Use of humor, surprise, and suspense were evenly mixed with the characters pretty well drawn out. Not one I will read over and over, but definitely good for a plane flight or day at the beach.

One caveat - some steamy scenes... I would say 17+...

All the best,

Product Description
A slasher movie turns real when two young actors are brutally murdered on a remote island film set. Their severed heads and arms are posed in macabre homage to a nineteenth-century pirate massacre.

Two years later, survivor Vanessa Loren is drawn back to South Bimini by a documentary being made about the storied region. Filmmaker Sean O'Hara aches to see how the unsolved crime haunts her…and Sean knows more than a little about ghosts.

Lured by visions of a spectral figurehead, Vanessa discovers authentic pirate treasures that only deepen the mystery. Are the murders the work of modern-day marauders, the Bermuda Triangle or a deadly paranormal echo of the island's violent history? As Vanessa and Sean grow closer, the killer prepares to resume the slaughter…unless the dead can intervene. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Paranormal Romance
GHOST NIGHT by Heather Graham is the second in a trilogy that evolves around the O'Hara family of Key West, FL. Sean O'Hara and his friend David Beckett are looking for a thread to pull together a film that includes the mysteries of the keys with historical documentation.
Vanessa Loren was the script writer on a teenage/slasher film that ended in the grotesque murder of the two stars. She is haunted by their murders and is looking for answers before she can agree to release the film.
Vanessa is a long time friend of Kate O'Hara's. She brings Sean and Vanessa together and reluctantly Sean agrees to include the modern murder in his film. After collecting all the members of the original film crew, they sail to the scene of the murders.
As in the previous title, the ghost Bartholmew provides both assistance and comic relief. A good read for this spooky month.

5-0 out of 5 stars tense paranormal romantic suspense
On Haunt Island near Bimini, writer Vanessa Loren is part of a crew filming a low-budget horror movie. As they complete the final wrap, someone gruesomely murders two actors Georgia Dare and Travis Glenn. Their heads are decapitated and posed in a frightening manner in the sand.The case is unsolved.For the next two years, Vanessa remains frightened and unable to sleep as she suffers nightmares from the grisly scene she saw on the Bahamas' island beach.

Filmmaker Sean O'Hara hires Vanessa to work on a documentary he is filming in the area where the cold case homicides that haunt her occurred.Hoping to get closure, she agrees.Sean can see ghosts and Vanessa fall in love, but a deranged killer stalks them anxiously waiting for a rerun of what happened two years ago.

The second Bone Island paranormal romantic suspense (see Ghost Shadow) is a delightful thriller due to the ghosts feeling genuine.The lead couple is a wonderful duet whose hope for a Hollywood ending is in trouble from a slasher (everyone knows what happens in a slasher flick).Ghost Night is tense entertainment as a killer looks forward to adding a pair in love to the count of victims.

In New Orleans, Fiona MacDonald is one the Keeper sisters who watch over the city's vampire, shapeshifter and a few unmentionables population though her focus is the bloodsuckers.Her job is to resolve conflict as quietly as possible and to insure the species behaves themselves so as to keep the humans ignorant that the otherworldly reside in their midst.

Product Description
When Sarah McKinley is finally able to buy and restore the historic Florida mansion that she has always loved, she dismisses the horror stories of past residents vanishing and a long-dead housekeeper who practiced black magic. Then, in the midst of renovations, she makes a grim discovery. Hidden within the walls of Sarah's dream house are the remains of dozens of bodies—some dating back over a century.

The door to the past is blown wide open when Caleb Anderson, a private investigator, shows up at the mansion. He believes several current missing-persons cases are linked to the house and its dark past. Working together to find the connection and stop a contemporary killer, Sarah and Caleb are compelled to research the history of the haunted house, growing closer to each other even as the solution to the murders eludes them.

But there is one who knows the truth…a spirit who follows every move they make. Soon Caleb begins to fear that if he can't stay a step ahead, he could lose Sarah to a killer with an ability to transcend time in a quest for blood and sacrifice. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Read All Around
(Originally posted [...])

This was one of those books that was extremely difficult for me to put down. It's a story that had so many twists and turns and an ending that left me feeling like I got hit with a two by four. I thought I had the mystery figured out and then WHAM! I got hit upside the head with a surprising twist that had me refusing to put the book down until the story wrapped up into its wonderful conclusion.

There are two main characters in this book: Caleb Anderson, a private investigator with an interesting ability who was sent to St. Augustine, Florida under assignment to search for a girl who mysteriously disappeared. This leads Caleb to Sarah McKinley's neck of the woods. Sarah is a historian with a cute occupation as a tour guide dressed in period clothing and giving tours to visitors about the gruesome past of St. Augustine Florida before, during and after the Civil War.

At the beginning of the story, Sarah is on cloud nine after finally purchasing the house of her dreams: a historic mansion with a past just as gruesome, if not more so than other landmarks the township claims to have. In the middle of renovating the mansion, a large cache of bones is found inside one of the walls. Around this time, Caleb is unable to resist the pull he feels towards both Sarah and her house even as he investigates what could potentially be a serial killer case.

The whirlwind of events that follow has Sarah and Caleb on a wild goose chase that merges the events of the distant past with those of the present. There were many times where I clutched the book in genuine fear of the characters' lives. The characters could have used a little more depth and the story did seem to lag, but over-all this is a great beach-read book. There's a very sweet romance that unfolds between Caleb and Sarah, though I felt Sarah's character was glossed over. Her reactions to the spirit were a bit over-done and sometimes she acted just an insy bit naïve - especially when she was fully aware she was a single female with the threat of a serial killer out on the loose.

I rate this four out of five stars for Unhallowed Ground as I thought it was a genuinely good read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Book Review - Unhallowed Ground
Review Date: August, 2010 -- by Marti Melville

Unhallowed Ground takes the reader to the typical Heather Graham unpredictable haunting experience in a strange, old house with "skeletons in its closets" (or walls). A fast-paced, enjoyable read from beginning to end.

Recommend to anyone wanting to sleep with the lights on for the next few nights!

2-0 out of 5 stars Typical H.G. Storyline, poorer quality
I've found that, after a while, most Heather Graham storylines read the same.That said, I usually find them to be a guilty pleasure so I didn't mind when the blurb about this one reminded me of her other books.

I wish I'd just dug through my bookshelf and re-read one of her other books.The quality of writing seems to deteriorated, and many lines are repeated - though said by different characters.Also, the romance seemed a bit "contrived" and the ending was not "fleshed out."The "saved by the ghost" seems to be a popular ending for her.

Rather than purchasing this book, I would recommend re-reading your favorite Heather Graham.You'll get the same general storyline without the disappointment.

2-0 out of 5 stars Saved by the ghost
A historical house in one of the oldest cities in America, St. Augustine. An attractive single woman, with training in history and forensics, who has loved the house since her childhood and has finally been able to buy it. Skeletons in the walls, never mind the closets! I was hoping for more realism than I found in Unhallowed Ground, which turns out to be a lightweight and predictable romance with a missing person mystery thrown into the mix. The heroine gets herself locked into her own cellar. The hero can't walk down the street without stumbling across a corpse. The dialog features phrases like, "Don't come to my room again unless you want sex."

Enough said.

5-0 out of 5 stars Incrediable
I just started reading this book but already hooked. I love the way this author writes..

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book with unlikely bad guy
I just recently starting reading Graham's books and am a fan now. This was the second book I've read on my Kindle. Good mix of suspense and mystery mixed with love and passion. Very well developed characters. I've never read anything with a plot line about genetically engineered alligators so this was an interesting piece of fiction. The story kept me guessing and had what I considered to be an unlikely "bad guy" which was nice - not predictable. Good swift pace kept my interest. Recommended.

This would be a great follow-up to Lake Placid.
We get to make a trek to the Everglades [have only been able to picture it after some scenes from CSI:Miami]where we get to meet the Native American Seminoles and Miccosukee Indian police in the person of Jesse Crane, who's wife was killed.

Now you want to talk about a jerk, Lorena Fortier[blonde bombshell] sure qulifies. Granted she was on a mission but had not given enough thought to who she was putting in jeapordy.

The great scene of the black eyed Alligator and Billy Ray Hare kind of makes your hair stand on end.

When Lorena finally gets to Harry's Alligator Farm and Museum she meets her co-workers Dr. Michael Preston [oh to get into his office and notes] - Harry, the owner, Jack Pine, a tall, well-muscled Seminole and Hugh Humphrey, a wiry blond handler[of the gators] from Australia -- and a tall, white haired man talking to them, Dr. Thiessen, a local vet and his helper, John Smith, extraordinarilly big.And there was Sally Dickerson, the head cashier and bookkeeper, she was always making up to Jesse.

With two friends of Jesse's shot to death, execution style and having to look for Billy Ray, the Miami-Dade homicide detective, Lars Garcia was in charge of the shooting case and someone Jesse had gone to college with, things were heating up.

Suddenly the incidents were looking suspicious - what did Lorena know and what was she looking for?Who was responsible for her father's death?
But first she had to find evidence that he was murdered.Who would believe her?

Jesse and Lars were trying to pull together the evidence that would make sense.Where did these giant Alligators come from?Lorena almost met one face to face.

Who could have enough money to make the evidence disappear?Excellentlly told tale - another female who makes nothing of bed hoping.Love? yeah, right.

Still a great read once you get past the "romance"?

3-0 out of 5 stars More gene manipulation
Lorena Fortier is a lawyer who is going under cover to find out who killed her father. Nobody believes he was murdered, but she has found an e-mail among his effects that makes her believe someone killed him for his research. Now she is acting as an RN at a crocodile farm.

Jesse Crane is half Seminole and the law in his part of the Everglades. I found he liked himself alittle to much. The descriptions of his macho virile self were abit over the top. He struck me as abit of a jerk.

Both characters were slightly larger than life. And certainly had very good self images. A little more modesty would have been nice.Suddenly several deaths occur. Maybe drug related or not. One couple is killed at their home at night and Jesse knows they are upstanding people.

Finally, both are convinced that enhanced reptiles are loose in the glades and have killed man. What about the people who have been shot? Is someone killing people to hide the evidence?

Fairly good suspense, so-so romance, but it is a short book. Not to bad a read at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Fast Paced Romantic Suspense!!!
Ms. Graham has again used Florida for the setting of her latest romantic suspense.Through her descpitive writing you will feel as if you are standing right along side with the characters of the book.

Lorena has come to the Everglades to find out who killed her father.She gets a job at an alligator farm.She has no idea that she has just set up home in a vipers nest of secrets and danger.She also doesn't realize that she is in more danger that she could ever imagine.Especially when bodies starts piling up among the locals.Who is killing them and why?Could it have anything to do with her fathers research?

Jesse Crane is a cop who has returned to his Everglades home after the murder of his wife.Here he does what he can to protect the people that make the dangerous but beautiful Everglades home.So when he meets the beautiful but sassy Lorena for the first time, sparks fly.When he finds out that she is hiding a secret the more he wants to get to know her and protect her.Will he be able to find out what is going on before a rogue gator, and a murdered that walks upright manages to silence Lorena before he can uncover her secret?

This was a very good read.Ms. Graham has managed to include a lot into a short read that will enthrall as well as entertain fans of romantic suspense.The interaction between Jesse and Lorena is spicy and entertaining.This is one author that I highly recommend.

I was very disappointed.I thought I was buying a book and this was just a short preview of upcoming books.I do like the series.I agree with previous commenters that this should have been free.Very frustrating to pay for something that was this short and not a real book.

2-0 out of 5 stars Frustrated
I had no idea when I bought this that it was essentially a short story.While I love all of Heather Graham's books, I was disappointed that I paid for a short story that took me 2 hours to read (if that).

3-0 out of 5 stars good story, should be free ebook
This is a prequel for the Bone Island Trilogy by Heather Graham: Ghost Shadow, Ghost Moon, and Ghost Night. Since I have not read the series yet, I cannot say how it relates to the series, but the story in itself is a good one. It did its job to make me interested in reading the trilogy.I wish there was more to say, but the story is so short, there really isn't much to say about it.

My only complaint is that it is a pay-for book and not just a free ebook. It is a publicity short book that ends with excepts from the series (which makes up about as much of the "book" as the story) and really would be better to given away to get readers excited about the series. ... Read more

Product Description
A chill falls over Christina Hardy's housewarming party when talk turns to a recent murder that has all the hallmarks of the so-called "Interstate Killer" murders from fifteen years before. To lighten the mood, the guests drag out an old Ouija board for a little spooky fun…and that's when things become truly terrifying.

Summoned by the Ouija board, the restless spirit of Beau Kidd, the lead detective—and chief suspect—on the original case, seeks Christina's help: the latest killing isn't a copycat crime, and he wants his name cleared. Back in the real world, cop-turned-writer Jed Braden is skeptical of Christina's ghostly encounters, but his police sources confirm all the intimate details of the case—her otherworldly source is reliable, and the body count is growing.

The spirits are right. The Interstate Killer is still out there, and Christina's life is hanging in the balance between this world and the next. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag of crime drama, mystery and supernatural
'The Seance' has an interesting premise, but suffers from a lack of depth in its characters, and focus in it's story. Like most 'beach reads' for predominantly female audiences, the shift in tones betwen light and serious throws the story out of whack occasionally. The characters are a bit flat, and sometimes it's hard to keep track of how they all fit in.
There are some interesting 'CSI meets Ghost Whisperer' moments, so it all turns out to be a slightly above-average read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another exceptional book by Heather Graham
I could not find one thing that I disliked about this book. It captured my attention from go and kept it. I didn't put it down until it was finished. Ghost Walk, and Haunted are still my favorites, but this is another excellent book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Even males like myself should enjoy this
Quite a few of us guys tend to shy away even from mysteries which are typed as partial romance tales, but I for one found this highly enjoyable and worth recommending.However, I do havethree "nitpicks" to share.I doubt any of them are serious enough to interfere with one's enjoyment, but should be noted.The two or three graphic sex scenes slow down the plot for me...three or so pages describing such a scene seems unnecessary in a paranormal mystery.It seems to me that the author is obviously directing the characters in making various decisions in order to further the plot rather than creating the feeling that the characters themselves are thinking for themselves.And the denouement seems a bit arbitrary as if the writer waited until the last five or so chapters to decide just how to end the story.However, this is a thoroughly entertaining book, a fast read (about six hours for me), and worth your while if you enjoy paranormal mysteries.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Seance
The book is in good shape and arrived promptly. However I am "NOT" happy with amazon themselves. I have a $25.00 coupon and when I tried to use it to purchase the books they made using that coupon so difficult that after spending 3 hours on the phone with them I ended up not being able to use it. I notified them within 3 minutes of placing my order for 6 books and they told me there would be no problem using it and for me to call back in 30 minutes after the order was processed.I called and then was told that when it's processed it's sent to the specific individuals selling the books and that the orders were already placed and are on their way to me. There was no way to use the coupon at this point!I'm still fuming over this situation.I do want to say that MIRA books had nothing to so with this and they are great!Just be careful with Amazon!

4-0 out of 5 stars Beware of Ouji Boards!
Christina Hardy is moving back into her grandma's old house--one that holds many memories, good and bad.Unfortunately, the return of a serial killer who is targeting beautiful red-heads (such as Christina), Christina's hidden-until-now predilection to see ghosts and some messing with a Ouija board at her housewarming party opens the door for Christina to become haunted by the cop who was originally accused of the killings and who wants Christina to clear his name.

Jed Braden, former cop turned novel-writer and private investigator, is a distant relation of Christina's.He's looking into the murders, concerned because one of his books was a fictionalized account that went along with everyone's belief that the cop did it--only the cop was killed and now the murders have started again.If it's not a copy-cat, Jed wants to help clear the dead cop and his own conscience for adding to the family's pain.And he's romantically interested in Christina--who with her red hair, is in danger until the killer is caught.

The tale is quite readable and suspenseful.Graham is an old and sure hand at these things.I'm not sure this is one of her best, though, since there was sparks but not much of a relationship, otherwise, between Jed and Christina.But if mystery is what you care about, this one was pretty good.I did figure it out before the end, which is rare for me, but it was still unusual enough to be interesting. ...

When does a gift become a curse?

Matt Stone doesn't believe in ghosts. But there are those who are convinced his home, a historic Virginia estate that dates back to the Revolutionary War, is haunted.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great haunted house story
I really like Heather Graham's paranormal stories, especially the ones with characters from the fictional Harrison Investigations. While haunted house stories have been done over and over again, Heather Graham puts a different twist to it, which is one of the reasons why it's a great page-turner book. All in all, I highly recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars No one really eats haggis
In The Presence, Toni MacNally and her five best friends rent a Scottish castle to organize dinner theater tours.Suddenly, the real ownerBruce MacNiall, appears and they learn that the little play she wrote for the performances are based on real people from MacNiall's family.
The real Bruce MacNiall is investigating a serial killer that is using his ancestral home as a dumping ground while the Scooby friends continue their performances.It gets really complicated fast.I did learn that no one really eats haggis.
There are two mysteries here, the legend of the original Bruce MacNiall and the identity of the serial killer that is seeking the current Bruce MacNiall's attention.

5-0 out of 5 stars My first Heather Graham Read...
and it blew me away! I was a bit hesitant...when I was first referred to the book, it popped up on the Harlequin website, and well, I'm not a big Harlequin fan. But I quickly looked past that, and ordered it. It was a great, thrilling, non-stop read for me. Great characters, and a great plot. I'm not hooked on her books!

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect
I am into hauntings, vampires, and books that tie a little love story into it all. This was a exceptional book. After reading her first, Ghost Walk, I had to have this one. Like the first, neither dissapointed me. I hightly recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Loved it!!
This is the fourth book by Heather Graham that I've read regarding her "supernatural" series and I have to say that I like this one the best.It follows a small-town sheriff named Matt Stone who hires a paranormal psychic investigator named Darcy to stay at his southern bed and breakfast when "ghost" activity scares a few maids and houseguests off.He doesn't believe in spirits and thinks Darcy is many things, including a fraud, despite her beauty and demeanor.They don't get a long and the tension between them builds until it hits a cresendo.There is a murder-mystery that is fun to read and try to guess whodunit and overall, the story is enjoyable. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars It was ok
I really loved the previous books, but this one kind of fizzled out. Don't get me wrong I loved the idea, but this book could have been so much more. It would be an ok book to read on a rainy day, but not something I would read more than once. Borrow this one from the library.

3-0 out of 5 stars this book is predictable
this book is rather predictable as it wasn't hard to figure out who caer was. i won't
give it away though for those who haven't read it. and i knewexactly who the killer
was early on. however the magic of graham is that despite all of this i really enjoyed it.
she's an amazing story teller who always keeps me interested.i think so far the island
and ghost walk aremy favoriteby her. both are unpredictable and ghost walk is just so
much fun and neither end the way you might think.

4-0 out of 5 stars Deadly Gift
This was the 3rd book in the Flynn brothers series. It was ok, but in my opinion not as good as the 1st two. I still enjoyed it though, and have read many other Heather Graham books as a result.

3-0 out of 5 stars Can a book jump the shark?
While I never really expect deep reading from Heather Graham, I do expect a well written storyline. After all, I've read some pretty great stories from her. This book? Well, it isn't as bad as some of her other books, but it just isn't her best.

Eyes of Fire is set on a beautiful island paradise where Sam works as a dive instructor for intrepid vacationers. Sam spends her time trying to forget her father's mysterious disappearance as well as forget the one man who set her body ablaze. Her father had been searching for a sunken ship that supposedly carried various stolen riches when he'd disappeared. Unfortunately for Sam, she's not going to be able to forget the past. Not only has an old flame reappeared, but there are people who desperately want to find the sunken treasure... and are willing to kill for it.

The book started off well enough & despite the amount of foolish pride that the main hero & heroine displayed, I liked their characters. There was a nice buildup to the mystery, but it is about halfway through the book that I just got a little irritated with the entire scenario.

First off, there's too many characters in the book & as a result the "whodunit" is unnecessarily complicated. It was a bit of a chore to keep up with everyone- especially when Graham tried to do the "nobody is what they seem" bit, so after a while I just didn't even bother. Just because you can cram almost a dozen people into the plotline doesn't mean that you should. Neither should you try to give each person their own distinct storyline- it just caused the book to drag in the last half when Graham tried to explain everyone's past or motives or conclude their interactions in the story.

Then there's the ending- the grand finale with the villain. I'm going to give a little bit of a spoiler (but not ID anyone or their motivations) & say that Graham pulled a new-ish (already in the regular cast) villain into the ending, which to me just seemed a little overkill. It just felt too unnecessarily complicated.

I just wish that Graham had focused on 2-3 specific persons & things rather than try to involve so many plot elements. Done right, a huge cast & many plot developments can be a fun read. This book just didn't mesh together right.

Don't get me wrong- this isn't a bad book & I did enjoy it for the most part. It'll make for a nice enough beach read for someone looking for a casual read. I just wouldn't recommend it for a first time Graham reader.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!
I read this book in one day!I literally couldn't put it down.I just ordered four more Heather Graham books.She is, by far, one of my favorite authors. She draws you in at the first page and keeps you on pins and needles until the last page.

3-0 out of 5 stars Too many characters, plot not that exciting.
Samantha returns from taking her guests out diving to see the mail boat arrive with an unannounced guest on board. A guest that she knows and wishes he'd never returned. Adam O'Connor remembers clearly what Sam had been like years before and his heart still stops when he sees her. He introduces himself to some of her guests and to Sam like he's never met her before, which throws her off and has her fleeing from his presence in haste.

Once back in her cabin, she decides to soak in the tub and debate with herself on what to do about Adam. But she doesn't get to debate long. Someone has broken into her cabin, dressed all in black with a black mask, intent on drugging and kidnapping her right from her tub. Who should come to her rescue but Adam. Adam refuses to tell her why he's suddenly showed up, why he couldn't come to her aid when her father had disappeared, when her friend, Hank Jennings, disappeared.

Then he begins to point out that her guests aren't who they say they are. Suddenly Sam is suspicious of every single one of them. But one thing is clear; one or more of her guests are after something, a treasure under the sea that caused the disappearance of two men she cared about, the possible murder of same friends. Who can Sam trust?

Oh, where do I begin? I usually really enjoy Graham's novels, but I found this one fell almost flat compared to the others I've read. First: Too many characters and too many disconnections. It was getting hard to remember which character was which. Thoughts never completed. And while you get the story of the treasure aboard the Beldona, it's not as exciting as you're made to think.

I did like the tension between Sam and Adam. You find out what happened in the past between them and why it fell apart and you get a greater picture of how naive Sam was - and sort of still is. And while there are a couple of action scenes well worth reading, the rest of the story seems to fall flat, like there's no substance to it. A couple of little twists are a bit of a surprise, but seem to feel downplayed. I really believe that if there had been less characters in play and more substance to the story, the book would have been much better.

2-0 out of 5 stars Enough Already!!!
I love a good story, and on the story line I would give this a five star rating! But I found myself skimming the page after page of sexual content to get back to that good story. A little sexual tension is good even a little sexual suggestion but not three four and five pages in a row of explicit sex.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disjointed
Too many characters and no continuity.She jumps from one set of characters to another without ever completing a thought. She is trying to create suspense, but half way through I found myself frustrated, wanting to read a "normal" conversation with some story line to it.Too many incomplete sentences.Too many subplots with no substance to help get a grip on the story. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Home in Time for Christmas
I purchase Christmas literature each year as a treat to get through the cold season.This book was one of the biggest disappointments I have had in a holiday read in years. A mundane vocabulary and a predictalbe outcome. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

3-0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but proofreading would have definitely helped...
This was an entertaining read...the first of Ms.Graham's work for me. However, (although I missed the incorrect date for the Constitution that another reviewer brought up (a big "Uh-oh")), my problem with it was the unusual number of misspellings and grammatical errors throughout. This is a pet peeve of mine and may not bother others as much, but it was very distracting for this reviewer. Isn't that what proofreaders are for?

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Christmas Read
I have read most of Heather Graham's novels and loved each one.This one was a little bit far-fetched, but when you are reading about para normal it goes with the territory.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of Those Novels That Really Touches You
Melody Tarleton is looking forward to a good old-fashioned Christmas with her family in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, on her way home, she loses control of her car on the ice and hits a man who is in the middle of the road. As if that wasn't shocking enough, the stranger is dressed in period clothing from Revolutionary times.

Jake Mallory, a Patriot soldier, is confused to say the least. The last thing he knew, he stood on the gallows in New York City about to be hung for his involvement in the American uprising against the British. Now he is in the 21st century where he has just been hit by a strange piece of machinery with a young woman at the wheel. While he is glad just to be alive, he has no clue what to do next. He needs to get back home to 1776 in order to help his sister, who may be at the mercy of the British army.

Melody takes Jake home with her to her family Christmas to try and figure out how to help him, all the while hoping that his memory returns and that he won't divulge his fanciful imaginings to her family. As she spends more time with Jake, she begins to wonder if he's actually telling the truth --- and if he is, how can it be so? Time travel isn't possible, right?

Jake is wowed by the progress that has been made in over 200 years and takes in the new world around him with awe and wonder. Television, computers, electric lights and microwave ovens amaze him as well as the fact that America won her independence from Britain. Modern times aren't the only thing that makes an impression on Jake, though. Melody is quite a woman, and he finds that she occupies much of his thoughts.

But the last thing Melody needed was another man present at the holiday table. She already had her work cut out for her. She is determined to convince her boyfriend, Mark, that things are over between them. Mark wants to get married and live a traditional life with Melody at home cooking, cleaning and caring for their future children. While Mark is a nice guy, it's not the life Melody has envisioned for herself, and no matter how often she tells him they have no future, he's just not listening.

Somehow Melody manages to maintain her composure amidst Jake, Mark and her quirky family. With a father who is an inventor, a mother who is immersed in magic and potions, and a brother who never misses an opportunity to tease her, Melody has to keep her wits about her --- and that's not going to be easy. Will Melody be able to make Mark understand that they are over? Will Jake be able to convince Melody that he is not crazy, just lost in time? Will she be able to let him go if he manages to find a way back to the past? It's hard to say, but no matter how it all will turn out, one thing is for sure: this will be a Christmas to remember.

HOME IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS is one of those novels that really touches you. You finish reading it and immediately want to start again just to relive the whole experience. Every character touched my heart and made me believe that Christmas truly is a time for miracles. Don't miss your chance for a bunch of holiday smiles and a book you will want to reread every Christmas season.

They want to create a reenactment that combines fact and fiction, complete with local history, murder and an imaginary laird named Bruce MacNiall.But when the actual owner - a tall, dark and formidable Scot who shares the fiction laird's name - comes charging in, the similarity between this actual being and the fictitious character created for the performance is shocking. Soon the group is drawn into a real-life murder mystery, and Toni begins to have sinister lifelike dreams in which she sees through the eyes of the killer - dreams that suggest a connection to Laird MacNiall. Bruce claims he wants to help catch the murderer. But can Toni trust him . . . especially when his ghostly double wanders the forest in the black of night? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars i loved this book!!!
i don't understand some of the negative reviews on this book. i loved it!!! it was very entertaining and i couldn't put it down.
it kept you guessing , as just when i thought i knew who the killer was, i turned out to be wrong. it was a well balanced ghost story
withslight creepy undertone. sure the romance was a little mushy , but the othercharacters and the interesting plot made up for it.
its a fun read that keeps you interested

3-0 out of 5 stars Overlong, but sure to entertain Heather Graham fans
At times, I suspect I'm the only guy who will pick up and read a Heather Graham novel.I'm an obsessive mystery fan, and her books loosely qualify as mysteries although she centers on the romantic relationship between leading characters.I try to be fair and rate her books through the eyes of her fans, so I overlook much of the predictability and formulaic writing.That said, I doubt that even her fans will be crazy over this one.It does seem way too long for the substance.And there are signs of hasty writing not usually that obvious in her books.One "red herring" scene that casts suspicion on a couple of characters is never explained.Other red herrings are rather lame.The author's fans won't likely find this a bad book, but it is one of her obviously lesser efforts.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another great from Heather Graham
I read this as I have all her books. I found it to keep my attenion easy. Her early books, I still think are the best, but this author knows how to get your attention and keep you in suspense until the end.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting but not quite enough.
Toni and her friends from the states, married couple Gina and Ryan, and partners Kevin and David, have visited Scotland a few times and love the land. When the opportunity arose, finding a listing for a run-down castle up for rent with option to buy, the 5, along with Toni's scottish cousin, Thayer, decided to pool their savings together, buy the castle, fix it up and run tourist tours, using local history, to reenact the scenes from the past - what Toni made up in her head.

Scary part of that: what Toni created from fiction is too close to the truth, for the owner of the castle, Laird Bruce MacNiall, last known descendent of the MacNiall's, has returned to find his castle overrun by Americans. Now both sides are angry; Bruce for finding people in his castle with legal documents that seem legit, and the group, having been duped. Feared they will be kicked to the curb, Bruce allays their fears in allowing them to stay, at least for six months, working their tours to recoup as much of their losses as possible.

Meanwhile, someone is murdering prostitutes and dumping them in Tillingham forest, which borders MacNaill Castle. Bruce had stumbled upon the first body. Eban, the hired man who sees to the horses and care of the grounds, had stumbled upon the second. When Toni stumbles upon a third body, the first thought is the remains belong to Annie O'Hara, the third girl that has gone missing. However, the body is too well preserved; mummified by the clay and muck the body had been buried in. With DNA testing, the body is confirmed that of Annalise MacNiall, wife of the late Laird. While Annalise had simply disappeared in the history of the castle, rumors ran amok that it had been the Laird that had murdered his wife, believing she had betrayed him. But the tattered cloth found around her neck bears the markings of Grayson Davis, the traitor to the highland people.

With one mystery solved, there are still two more; fraud and murder. But who committed the crimes? And why?


When Bruce first returns to the castle, the animosity between him and Toni is so thick you can feel it. Bruce believes that Toni's not telling the truth, Toni can't believe that Bruce is the Laird, the actual owner of the castle. What I wasn't happy with was the way Toni "jumped" him after seeing the ghost of the original Laird, standing at the foot of her bed, his sword dripping blood. She wants to feel alive and whole, and that's why she jumped him? And just about every time they fool around, it's for that same reason. Near the end of the story, he believes she's seeing things that aren't real, just dreams, all her imagination, when she admits to what she's seen. He can't believe in it, and yet, a decade before, as a cop, he'd been able to track down a murdering husband and wife team and solve a case, somehow by getting into the killer's mind. Not wanting to remember it, he doesn't want to believe Toni, which pressed on my nerves. How they can confess they love each other at the end of the story made me angry, for they had nothing to base that love on, as far as I was concerned. Attraction, yes. Love, no. The only real time they spent together was in bed and every discussion turned into a fight, one not believing the other. And they fell in love in there somewhere? I certainly didn't feel it.

I was surprised to find out that the killer murdering prostitutes was the same person who committed the fraud. I knew who the murderer was, but for the one who committed fraud, I was wrong. The why of it is the usual; jealousy, envy, the killer twisting his beliefs to fit his reasons for revenge.

I do believe, however, that there was too much going on in this story, too many different routes. The historical part of it, I loved. It was like a side benefit, and I loved how the author brought you into the past so that you could see what happened.

I was annoyed by one aspect, however. When Toni was nine, she was able to see things, murders, with details that no one knows but the police. After being badgered and interrogated, Toni had collapsed, shutting down her mind. When she awoke, she'd managed to supress the dreams, the visions, and although she's having visions of the past Laird, seeing his ghost in the castle, in the forest, she's having none of the current murders. And yet, it's believed she's a medium, specifically? She'd met Adam Harrison of Harrison Investigations when she was a child; he'd left his card and told her to call anytime she needed him. She did, only was unable to talk to him. Instead she gets Darcy, who, along with her husband Matt, make an appearance in Scotland, after being asked not to, and to me, I don't know why they were even brought into the story. A talk with Adam would have sufficed. No matter what was discussed between Darcy and Toni, or what Darcy said to Bruce, it really didn't have an impact on the story whatsoever, like a `filler' that didn't have to be added to the story - wasted space.

I liked the story, but no more than that. I felt disconnected from this one; too much going on, not enough context. If you haven't read Heather Graham before, don't start with this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
Wanna spend the afternoon with a good mystery? If so, you gotta read THE PRESENCE. Toni Fraser and a group of friends have rented a Scottish Castle and are giving skitted tours, featuring the ancestral owner. Toni believes she has created the tale but when the descendant of her play arrives, she is made aware that her ghost story is factual on many levels.

This is my first experience with Heather Graham's writing and I loved her book. Her writing style is easy to follow, she paints the scene with a skilled hand, and her characters are fantastic. She also weaves subplots and red herrings throughout her story that will keep you guessing until the end.

Although it took me a while to keep all of the characters straight, I was drawn in immediately to the story and found it difficult to stop turning the pages. THE PRESENCE has made me a fan of Ms Graham's work, and I will look for more of her books.

4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Halloween reading
I get in the mood for something a little spooky around Halloween every year. This book and the first book of the trilogy are great books for just that. It isn't too scary, but interesting enough to hold me captive. I couldn't put this book down. I had to know what happened. Get your favorite throw and curl up with this book, you won't regret it.

3-0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Location
The witches of Salem Mass. are alive and active in Graham's book. Salem is the perfect location for the story that exemplifies the macabre as well as the spiritual side of the paranormal. The primary characters' inner struggle with and denial of their inherent ability to communicate on another dimension adds to the adventure of apprehending a serial killer.
The author is clever the way she incorporates historical legends and rituals into the acts of murder makes this a unique way of telling the story. Fascinating as well as entertaining.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad
This is the first book "suspense book" I've read by Graham. The prologue was promising. A husband and wife are visiting Salem during the Halloween Festivals. They've had recent marital problems and are spending the entire fun filled day together. In the early evening they visit a "tourist attraction" cemetery. While there, the wife vanishes. From there, the book goes downhill. Too much of this "suspense book" is dedicated to some contrived romance and it wasn't even a good romance.As a story progresses, if romance develops, that's fine by me, but this books starts off with sex. On the spur of the moment, I picked this up from my local drugstore and was disappointed because I wanted a good suspense novel. Nothing develops. It was contrived. Not much suspense in this book. It was silly, and poorly written. I felt no connection with the characters, except the husband who is under suspicion in his wife's disappearance.

I understand this book is part of a series. I won't be reading the others. This book was a chore to finish. Paperbacks have become expensive and I don't like wasting money. This was a waste of 8.00. I will say, this author wrote a romance novel titled "Captive". It was written several years ago, but is one of the best romance novels I have ever read.The book is out of print, but can be purchased used. It was too good.

3-0 out of 5 stars NEEDS PROOFREADING
While the storyline was okay (not the best I've ever read or the worst), this book is in desperate need of proofreading and corrections.

This book was so incrediable. I could not get enough of this book. It was funny at times especially when one of Byn's nephews threw food at Lee. The story line between Lee and Bryn was a great one. The caring Lee showed Bryn was epic. There was a time where she didn't even know that she was being cared for by Lee, when he had his friend follow her and watch out for her. The way Lee was with her nephews was touching. He cared so much for those boys. It melted my heart how he cared for them and wanted to protect them and Bryn. It was dangerous and heartfelt. I love Heather Graham. This book was from her Harlequin Collection. I loved it from beginning to end. If you have not read this book you must order it. Enjoy! I did.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great!
This is another great!!I loved the characters, the way it was written, the whole shot.As always, it was hard to put down.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful characters, touching story.
I loved this book. The characters were very realistic and the story was an intriguing one. Both Lee and Bryn's fear of getting hurt and cautious approach are very human and easy to relate to. The mystery itself can be a little predictable, but the chemistry between these characters and the way in which Graham brings them to like is fabulous. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed. ...

Product Description
The Flynn brothers have inherited more than a New Orleans plantation. They've inherited a ghostly presence… and a long-kept secret.

Aidan Flynn, a private investigator and eldest of the Flynn brothers, scoffs at the haunted-house rumors—especially since Kendall Montgomery, a tarot card reader who has been living in the mansion, is the one to tell him the tale of a woman in white. But when he finds a human bone on the grounds and another by the river, Aidan delves into the dark history of the Flynn plantation.

Forced together to uncover the truth, Aidan and Kendall realize that a serial killer whose victims seem to vanish into thin air has long been at work…and that their own fates are about to be sealed forever unless they believe in the unbelievable. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh thank you for a paranomal mystery worth reading
I get in the mood for something a little spooky around Halloween every year. This book and the second book of the trilogy are great books for just that. It isn't too scary, but interesting enough to hold me captive. I couldn't put this book down. I had to know what happened. I am from the south and have seen plantations just like this one. Who wouldn't romanticize about living in one? Places like this breath of history, romance, mystery and an air of something long past. Get your favorite throw and curl up with this book, you won't regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A gotta have
This was a great book.It grabs your right from the beginning and is full of suspense, twists & turns, thrills and romance.It keeps you guessing right up to the end.At one moment you're thinking, "Yes, it's so-n-so" then the next paragraph you're like, "no, it's so-n-so" and so on right up until the last few pages.I love it and I'm so glad that I bought the whole trilogy because as soon as I get done with this review I'm going to grab the next one off my bookshelf and dive right in.

4-0 out of 5 stars Book
I was pleased at how quickly the book arrived and the condition was exactly as described in the seller's statements.I buy a lot of books at used book sales and it is sometimes difficult to obtain an entire series.In this case, I found the second and third book in the series, but could not locate the first book.I like to read the books in sequence if possible and took the chance of ordering a barely used copy via Amazon.Although I haven't read the book yet, I was pleased with the condition, etc.I will know in the future to feel confident with ordering used/new copies of books from Amazon users/suppliers.Thanks for the pleasant experience!

4-0 out of 5 stars 3.5 For the ghost story

The Story
Aidan, Jeremy and Zach Flynn are brothers who just inherited at plantation in New Orleans. Amelia Flynn had an adopted granddaughter, Kendall. Kendall was staying with Amelia at the end of her days to help with the `illusions', or ghosts. It depends on who you ask whether or not the house is haunted. The brothers decide to renovate the house. On the first day Aidan finds two different female thigh bones. He being an ex-FBI/military guy and owning a PI agency with his brothers they decide to solve the case. Kendall can't decide if she hates or likes Aidan. There are several players in this novel, ghosts and human. The tale is woven several suspects, and Aidan won't give up no matter who he pisses off.

The mystery and supernatural aspects of this novel was good, but the romance was eh. Aidan's like a pit bull, he grabs on and won't let go to whatever he is after. Kendall's character is likable, she owns a tarot card shop. There are several cops that are agitated by Aidan's personality. He's very bold. The ghosts were interesting and suspenseful. I liked the plot at the end of the book, but going through I was a little bored. It took it a while to get all the way through. I've read better from this author - Nightwalker for example.

3-0 out of 5 stars It barely held my interest...
This is the first Heather Graham book I've read and it is very likely to be the last. The story had an interesting although unoriginal premise, but for me the writing did not hold my interst.Several times I found myself skimming rather than reading.

The story lacked chemistry bettwen Kendell and Aidan.I did not think Aidan was as much of a jerk as the author tried to portray him to be.I felt Kendell was an obstructionist in Aidan's investigation into a possible serial killer.She was overprotective of her friends.I could not figure out why, if she was so sure they were innocent, was it not okay for Aidan to question her friends seriously, especially since it was clear they had direct knowledge of the case/victims.

I think had the author included more of the brother's in this book I would have been interested to read any sequels involving them, but by the end of the book I just barely cared enough about any of it to read the last few pages. The mystery is what kept me reading, wanting to knew who was behind the disapperances, but it lacked an edge of suspense and because the writing didn't draw me in I barely cared. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars First read in 1991
I first read this trilogy in the early 90's...it has always been one of my favorite's.My reading tastes run the gamut but I have alwaysremembered this as one of my favorite period romances. I have actually looked for it over the years to recommend to others but was unable to find it. I was so excited to see it again and plan to buy new copies to share with friends! Read them all! They are wonderful!

4-0 out of 5 stars What a great read
This is the second in the series and I totally loved it. Daniel and Callie were fabulous characters with a lot of depth. The only thing that could have made this better was if I had known NOT to read the prologue before reading the story. It didn't add anything to the story for me-- if anything it really took away. I felt anxious and annoyed to have to go back to the beginning of the story and it was like someone told you a big 'ole spoiler right before you walk in to see a movie. When I read the third book in the series I skipped the prologue and went straight into chapter one and I enjoyed it much, much more. Then after I was done with the book I went back and re-read the prologue. That is the only thing about Heather Graham's writing that has really irked me. Otherwise, she's fantastic and this is a beautiful historical fiction series that also happens to be incredibly romantic.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's absorbing...
I read this first, though it's the second in the series (One Wore Blue is the first), however I found that I was not lost for having done so.The stories are separate enough that you don't have to follow the order.This was my first Heather Graham book, and I am now a fan.The book really absorbed me and I just had to make time in my busy day to read a few pages here and there, whenever I could.I was hooked.
I needn't tell you the storyline since it's posted everywhere. You won't be disappointed with this story.

5-0 out of 5 stars You thought it couldn't get any better...
I loved "One Wore Blue" so much and my hopes were high for the story of Jesse's brother, Daniel Cameron. This book grabbed me from the very first pages. The story of the Confederate soldier in love with the Yankee lady may seem to be cliche, but Heather Graham does it with such emotion, such passion, such depth that it seems like a brand new story. As with the story of Jesse and Kiernan, Daniel and Callie's story is rife with emotional turmoil. The characters are easy to fall in love with and you find yourself aching for them to find their way to each other. I get quite frustrated with the stories that have the hero and heroine endlessly fighting and bickering, but with Heather Graham (especially this particular trilogy), the tension is always deeper than selfishness, or the lead characters merely being irritated by each other. When Callie goes running after Daniel right before he is captured, you hold your breath wanting desperately for them to be able to avoid the pain you see coming. When Daniel thinks that Callie has betrayed him, your heart breaks knowing what a horrible misunderstanding has occurred and you are right there with them in the midst of their pain and longing for each other.

This book not only lived up to my high expectations, it surpassed them. This is a MUST READ, as is its predecessor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Part 2 of 3; This one is just as good as the first WOW
This is one of my favorite trilogy reads. All three are wonderful from start to finish. I'm sharing all my 5 star reads in hopes you'll read this and like it as much as I did. This I actually read before I started leaving my reviews on Amazon. Happy reading. Don't forget there's 1 more in this series. ... Read more

Product Description
Chloe Marin was lucky. She was just a teenager when a party at a Florida beachside mansion turned into a savage killing spree, and she was one of the few to survive. Bloody handwriting on the walls pointed to a cult whose rituals included human sacrifice. Chloe's sketch of one of the killers linked two dead cult members found in the Everglades to the massacre, closing the case as far as the cops were concerned.

Ten years later Chloe works as a psychologist specializing in art therapy to help traumatized victims, and on the side she finds release in her passion for the martial arts. Police who hire her as a consultant know she's a literal kick-ass advocate for victims who can't always speak for themselves.

The current disappearance of a young swimsuit model ranks low on the cops' priority list. Everyone assumes the girl has run off for some fun in the sun, instead of getting ready for a photo shoot. Everyone but Chloe, who suspects a killer is using the modeling agency to stalk his prey. When the ghost of the model appears, asking Chloe for help, she knows that she has to do everything she can.

So does Luke Cane, a British ex-cop-turned-P.I. investigating the disappearance of the model on behalf of her father. Chloe and Luke have trouble trusting each other, but they can't help their strong attraction for one another. Luckily they agree on the important things: someone needs to find those missing girls, and if a few laws have to get bent so lives can be saved, too bad.

When Chloe arrives late for an appointment at the modeling agency, she discovers a gruesome mass murder eerily similar to the one she witnessed a decade ago—and can't help thinking that if she hadn't run late, she would have been there when the killer arrived. Ten years ago she hadn't been convinced the police had identified the real killers, and now she's sure of it. The same evil mind is behind the current murders, and she's afraid she's the target—and ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Killing Edge
Years ago while in college, Chloe and her good friends Victoria, Brad and Jared survived a horrible massacre.Years later, Chloe has become a therapist, a model, and a sketch artist for the local police department.One model disappears and then some killings start to happen that are similar to the massacre.A PI is hired to find the missing model and Chloe is drawn romantically to him.The two team up to investigate.This book was a great thriller--I had no idea who the murderer was until the very end.Great action, great characters and just enough romance made this book a great read.I read this book on my Kindle.

An ARC of this book was sent to me by Netgalley.

3-0 out of 5 stars This was just... ok.
I like Heather Graham's books, but this one was just... ok. The plot was interesting (which is why I picked it up) but, as another reviewer mentioned, it just seemed to drag on a bit. I did find myself somewhat fast-skimming a few pages to get to a point that was mentioned in the summary. The appearance of Adam Harrison and Nikki and Brent was nice(if somewhat expected for a member of Harrison Investigations to show up), though I noticed that she had been using Nikki and Brent more than a lot of other investigators. (I'd like her to use Darcy and Matt again.)

Like I said before, I do like most of her books (especially the paranormal mystery books) but it is somewhat annoying to me how predictable some things are. Like, the main characters are normally a single female and male who (though they normally hadn't been getting along at first) eventually end up in bed. And the killer is normally someone who the main character has met or has known for a long time.

4-0 out of 5 stars Reintroduces old friends
Although not one of her best, Heather Graham's "The Killing Edge" is still a very enjoyable read. The protagonists are both "damaged" people trying to deal with past horrors and afraid of relationships as a result. Yes, you know Chloe and Luke will get together (this IS a Heather Graham book), but the dance they do to avoid their growing attraction is amusing. Chloe is a strong female character, living a fulfilled life in which a man is a "nice to have" rather than a "need to have." It's always enjoyable to reunite with old friends like Adam Harrington and the Blackhawks; such recurring characters make everyone seem more real. I did figure out who the killer was very early on, but I can do that with almost any book, which is why I don't read mystery novels unless they also have a good love story and lots of spooky stuff going on to keep me entertained until my suspicions are proved right.

5-0 out of 5 stars I don't know what the other readers are talking about...
I really enjoyed reading this book!In fact, I'm going to re-read it again in the near future. I found the plot line very exciting and the ending was unexpected.I couldn't put it down because I couldn't wait to found out what would happen.Don't let the other reviews convince you that this is not a "must read" book if you are a true Heather Graham fan.

1-0 out of 5 stars Under no circumstances should you buy or read this
This was a sloppily written romance novelette / adventure story.

The characters were paper thin, uninteresting, and unimaginative.

The plot was not believable.

The protagonists weren't either.

It was hard for me to believe that any publisher worth their salt would have published this poorly written and conceived book.

If I could have given it zero stars, I would have.

It was flat out terrible. ... Read more

Product Description
Nikki DuMonde's newest employee is standing at the end of her bed at four o'clock in the morning begging for help. It's a joke, right? Besides, as manager of a successful New Orleans haunted-tour company, Nikki doesn't scare easily. But in the light of day, harsh reality sets in as a police officer informs her that Andy was brutally murdered—at the exact time Nikki swears the distraught woman was in her room.

No one believes her except Brent Blackhawk, a paranormal investigator desperately trying to forget his tragic past. Half Irish, half Lakota—and able to communicate with the dead—Brent is used to living in two worlds. But when he realizes the ghost of a slain government agent is also trying to reach out to Nikki, he knows that she, too, must listen to the dead…if she wants to keep living. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I'd certainly read another.
Heather Graham's Ghost Walk is part bodice ripper, part murder mystery, and part ghost story.In fact it has a little bit of everything and should appeal to a large audience, particularly a female audience.

The hero is a psychic involved in hunting murderers with the assistance of the ghosts involved.He is a classic "Heathcliff" type with dark hair, strong "chiseled" features, and a painful past (a wife killed by a stray bullet) and is sure to appeal to anyone who enjoys the Victorians Heathcliff, Wuthering Heights, Mr. Rochester, Jane Eyre, or Mr Darcy, Pride And Prejudice.Though the overt sexual content may not be for everyone--there is more bedroom than withdrawing room behavior here--the plot is fully capable of holding the attention for those who look for more murderous or mysterious than bedroom action in their murder mysteries.The other characters are interesting and believable, and while they provide the author with alternative possibilities for the "guilty," they do have a life of their own, and one comes away with a feeling that they actually have a past and a future outside of the immediate present of which they happen to find themselves a part.

The prose of the story is well produced with well weighed choices of wording, though there was at least one or two overused "ouch" words--acrid being my least favorite--that seemed to find their way into the work.The author manages to create an image of New Orleans that rings true--at least pre-Katrina--and provides the reader with information about the city of New Orleans and its heritage without being overtly pedantic.I'd definitely like to see what's left of it after reading the book.There is a well engineered beginning, middle and end, and while the outcome is not totally unpredictable, it provides a satisfying denouement on all fronts:the romance, mystery and macabre tales.The clues are there for the astute reader, and one does not feel that the author needed to resort to unfair manipulation to make it come out right.

An enjoyable afternoon.I'd certainly read another.

5-0 out of 5 stars Feels Like I am in New Orleans!
I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end.I can't wait to visit New Orleans and enjoyed the atmosphere that Heather Graham created.A guided ghost tour is just the kind of thing I would love to do so I found the details of this story interesting.
I also like the format of this book and some of the other similar books this author has written.

This was my first Heather Graham book. I fell in love with it and the minute I finished reading it, I ran out and bought Haunted. Excellent plot, very well written, and vivid characters. Set in New Orleans just made it more perfect. Highly recommend.
