Publication Date: May 30th, 2017
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Suspense
Ghosts, FBI, and romance, what an awesome, unexpected combination! Well, not exactly if you are a fan of Heather Graham, (which I am), but I love this combination, because it adds just the right amount of action to a romance novel, making it less a formula book, but something exciting, and adventures. That is if it is done right.
I have read Krewe of Hunters books in the past, and none of them got me this interested and entertained as this installation – Dying Breath
-which is fast-paced, but has enough of a back story presented, that it feels complete, and not rushed. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two main characters, which was believable, and sweet, but I think one of my favorite characters in this novel, is a teenage ghost, who seems to have adjusted quite well to being dead.
There are a lot of twists and turns, not just in the inter-personal aspect of the book, the suspense building slowly, but steadily, until they finally find the killer(s), as expected, but maybe not like the reader expects.
I bought the next installment the second I finished this one, so that should tell you how much I enjoyed it.
This book is not clean, but it is not as graphic in the lovemaking department as some of the other books available out there right now. This was another point, that I truly enjoyed, as Heather Graham did not need to get into too many details, to convey the relationship of Griffin and Vickie was hot and romantic. I wish more romance novelists would do the same!
5 out of 5 Stars
As a teenager, Vickie Preston survived an attack by a serial killer. That was the first time she saw a ghost. Now the city of Boston is being terrorized—someone is kidnapping women and burying them alive, but cruelly leaving a glimmer of hope for the authorities by sending a clue about their location. Vickie is pulled into the investigation when her name is mentioned in one of the notes. And as a historian, she has the knowledge to help uncover the graves the killer known as the Undertaker is choosing. But she also has another unique lead: the spirit of one of the victims is appearing to her in dreams.
Special Agent Griffin Pryce is on the case for the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI’s special unit for paranormal investigators. He feels particularly protective of Vickie since their shared past is connected to the threat that currently surrounds them. With the killer accelerating his plans, time is running out for more victims hidden around the city. Vickie is becoming closer with Griffin, but she’s getting too close to the danger, and every breath could be her last.
