4.0 out of 5 stars Krewe of Hunters Book 8 29 Aug 2012
By TopCat
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is Book 8 in the Krewe of Hunters series. I only read book 4 (The Evil Inside) in August last year so I had to go and double check I was right that this was the 8th. And it is, Heather Graham is a machine!

This book is set in a Philadelphia mansion that is a feature of the city's tourist trail. There are plenty of ghost stories attached to the house, and a number of curious deaths in recent decades, but head guide and academic Allison is sceptical. When she finds a colleague dead, having apparently impaled himself on his replica bayonet, she certainly doesn't believe ghosts were involved. When there is another mysterious death and a former visitor falls into a coma rumours are flying that ghost of Butcher Bedford is the culprit but Krewe member Tyler Montague is convinced otherwise. Both Allison and Tyler believe there is an earthly explanation, and the time they spend together begins to change Allison's view of the world of the paranormal, and her initial distaste for the Krewe's involvement evolves into an overwhelming attraction for Tyler. Allison and the team have to work together to get to the bottom of the strange events and prevent more untimely deaths.

Having read two of the books in the series it appears that the members of the Krewe who mainly feature change with each book, so not having read previous stories is no handicap. This book is narrated largely from Allison's point of view and this allows the reader to discover how the Krewe work through her eyes. The writing is fluid and makes for an easy read.

I liked the overarching story in this book and was wondering which of two prime suspects would turn out to be the real villain.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Uninvited 12 Dec 2012

This is so much better than "The Unholy", much better written, still plenty of historical detail, but not enough to bore me rigid. An enjoyable read, and the characters were more rounded and believable.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Uninvited 18 Oct 2012
By Clare O'Beara TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The latest tale in this series is set in a haunted historic house in Philadelphia, the Tarleton-Dandridge House, owned by a not-for-profit organisation and supervised by docents who lead groups and introduce them to the features and past owners.

Allison Leigh is one docent who is leading a group which includes a boy who claims he gets scary feelings from a portrait of 'The beast' Bradley and appears to know far too much about past deaths at the property, such as a student playing a prank and a staff member's heart attack. A young man is unexpectedly found dead in a macabre fashion using a bayonet, and Allison dwells on the situation. A ghost-hunter called Agent Montague comes along to try to communicate with the spirits present, including a ghost horse and ghost hound, which I quite liked. Allison however has her own pet ghost who communicates with her and tries to help.

Presently other strange and potentially deadly accidents occur, such as copperhead snakes making their way into cars and the house, and it is easy to see that there is a sinister hand working the whole business, probably with money behind it instead of spectres.

To me the story was name-heavy and wearying from the prologue on, with lots of slow detail about a house that I didn't care about, and the haunting situation was reminiscent of Scooby-Doo. Regular readers of this series, or inhabitants of Philadelphia, may get more out of it than I did and the touching care that Allison's spectral friend has for her does bring a cheerful flavour.

5.0 out of 5 stars ghost stories and murder!! such fun. 29 Aug 2012
By love to read - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
the latest in the krewe stories, this one has a fun line of ghosts, teaches some good history, and has a murderer that i did not identify easily. plenty of unexpected twists to keep things interesting and a happy ending all around. heros and heroines abound while some innocents die, but it all leads to a good read with the only predictable thing being the romance of allison and tyler. heather graham is an author you depend on for a great day of reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars mystery, romance and a touch of paranormal 29 Aug 2012
By kimbacaffeinate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Heather Graham is one of my favorite authors for when the mood strikes. Each of the novels can be read as standalone, as each book deals with one member of the special FBI unit and their romance. I love that each case brings us a mystery to solve and a swoon worthy guy. The Uninvited tells Agent Tyler Montague's story as he works to solve a murder investigation.

The case is set in Philadelphia and involves the historic Tarleton House. Allison Leigh is a history professor and spends her summers working as a guide at the Tarleton House. Dressed in colonial attire, she is locking up after a busy day of tours when she discovers the body of a co-worker impaled by his own replica bayonet. While resident ghosts are good for drawing in visitors, the board is concerned because this isn't the first bizarre accident to occur. They call Adam the head of the special FBI unit and Taylor Montague is dispatched from Virginia to investigate. Allison isn't happy about this crew of "ghost hunters" invading the historic home, but when she begins seeing and hearing the voice of her dead colleague ..she might just change her mind. The tale that unfolds is suspenseful as they race to stop a killer.

We previously meet Agent Taylor and I was delighted to finally get his story. He is ex-military and was a Texas Ranger who helped find a missing girl with the help of a ghost. Taylor is tall and lean and looks like a linebacker. I really liked this soft spoken man. He feels like people are intimidated by his size and are quick to make judgment about him. He finds himself attracted to the sexy, refined, intelligent dark haired raven, Allison. Allison isn't ready to deal with the murder, let alone all this ghost woo-woo, but Taylor is so patient with her. *sighs* These two were obviously attracted to each other, but the discovery and dance was paced throughout the book allowing the romance to slowly unfold. The rest of the Krewe of Hunters arrived, but as is Graham's style they worked the case mostly in the background. Hints were dropped about whose story we will get next and I hope I am right. The list of suspects was colorful and the secondary characters including the ghosts added to the suspense and mystery.

The world building in Graham's novels are always fun. I love the investigation aspect and piecing together the clues. Having ghosts provide clues and unlock lost mysteries is always intriguing. In this type of tale the story lines follow a predictable recipe; murder, boy meets girl, search for clues, fall in love, solve the case. Graham takes this recipe and mixing up a delightful new batch each time and I always find myself completely immersed in the tale. I love that the romance is just a side dish to the mystery. She knows how to serve it and this one was spicy. I enjoyed watching it develop, the awkwardness, tension, that first kiss..eep! While there is sexual content it is all implied and should not offend. I loved the dead colleague and fans of the Ghost Bartholomew should be delighted by him. While I had my suspicions about whom the murderer was, Graham surprised me with a twist at the end.

I want to thank Mira/Harlequin and netGalley for providing this ARC in exchange for my unbiased review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book. 29 Aug 2012
By Angie Drane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
3.5 stars

I love history especially history pertaining to America and how we came to be. So, while this book was fiction it did have a lot of history about the occupation of Philadelphia by the British during the Revolution. I found it intriguing how Ms. Graham mixed the story of a young patriot woman, Lucy Tarleton, with the murders of several people that occurred in present time in her house. The storyline was interesting enough to keep you guessing while also watching the two MCs growing attraction towards each other. Though I didn't really think the ending was all that great. It just seemed the person responsible and the reason didn't make much sense to me considering there was nothing to be gained one way or the other. It also didn't explain how he knew the things he knew and everything was wrapped up way to quick, it was like "here is what happened and here is the clean-up". This was actually the first book of the series I've read and it did make me put the rest of the series in my TBR pile since a couple of the characters have already had their stories told. I didn't feel as if I was missing any kind of recurring storyline so it can be read as a stand-alone novel. All in all I found it a very enjoyable book and think fans of romantic suspense would find it enjoyable as well.
