This is one of my favorites by Ms. Graham. She has vividly brought New Orleans to life as well as it's eclectic and dynamic past. Making this a vital character to the story. The suspense and ghostly addition makes this read a page turner from the very start. Add to this the sensually constructed chemistry and attraction between Nikki and her Brent makes this a romance not only believable but more importantly...entertaining. You need look no further for a top drawer romance that delivers on all counts!
And Ghost Walk is another dead on target book. A keeper. There have been some great books set in New Orleans, and I am glad to see it still used as a locale. Remind us what was before Katrina and what can be again. In this wickedly sensual tale, Nikki DuMonde has the dream job of working for a haunted tour company in the Big Easy. I mean, are you talking about a job I'd kill for or what? Graham draws heavily on the history, the ambiance of the old city. This is just part of the job for Nikki. It's a bit jarring when the mundane become the supernatural, after her close friend dies. She at first question is she is losing it as the ghost of her friend begins to "walk" with Nikki. This fear increases as she realizes she is not only seeing her departed friend, but a few of her pals, too.
Enter Mr. Dishy...hum...Brent Blackwood. She expects the sexy man to laugh at her fears, but he seems to understand what she's going through. Naturally, as she copes with her newfound "friends" she understands she is now a target. Some one wants to send her on a permanent ghost walk of her own. Brent and Nikki create high energy, their sexual attraction sizzles in the fast paced, suspenseful tale.Read more ›
Nikki DuMonde is crushed when her friend and fellow employee is found dead. She is confused by the fact that she is certain she awoke during the night to see her friend standing by her bed at what she now knows is the exact time of death. Soon, it becomes obvious to Nikki that she is now seeing ghosts. Brent Blackhawk, a paranormal investigator who is delving into the death of an undercover FBI agent, realizes what Nikki is going through and tries to help her cope. Although the police believe her friend died of a drug overdose, Brent agrees with Nikki's assertion that foul play was involved, and he suspects a connection with the death of the FBI agent. Brent and Nikki soon develop strong feelings for one another and begin a relationship. Brent must protect Nikki from danger while they investigate to find out who was behind the murders.
Ghostwalk was an entertaining, fast paced book. The mystery was enhanced by the setting of New Orleans, with its legends and cemeteries. I enjoyed the way in which the characters of Nikki and Brent related to one another. There was a large cast of interesting secondary characters that also added to the novel. If you are a fan of paranormal romantic suspense, give this book a try
This was an impulse buy a while back that ended up sitting on my shelf. I've never read anything by Heather Graham before so I wasn't sure what to expect, although I'd heard her books referred to as paranormal romance. On the whole I enjoyed the book, although it was closer to romantic suspense than most of the paranormal romance books I read.
The plot is clever and well thought out, with a few twists and turns. I managed to figure out who the 'bad guy' was by halfway through the book, although not the reasoning behind the crimes. I liked the ghost angle and found it to be particularly well handled, but I really enjoyed the tour scenes.
I liked Nikki and Brent as characters, but all of the characters in the book seemed a little stereotypical at times. Nikki came across as a bit of a dumb blonde, the other people who worked on the tour seemed a bit underdeveloped and I didn't get the whole political-correctness issue surrounding Brent as it didn't contribute to the storyline.
I was a little disappointed by the setting. I love the Dark Hunter books by Sherrilyn Kenyon which are also set in New Orleans and was hoping the author would catch that same atmospheric feel.Read more ›
