A place of history, secrets…and witchcraft.
Devin Lyle has recently returned to the Salem area, but her timing couldn’t be worse. Soon after she moved into the eighteenth-century cabin she inherited from her great-aunt Mina—her “crazy” great-aunt, who spoke to the dead—a woman was murdered nearby.
Craig Rockwell—known as Rocky—is a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI’s team of paranormal investigators. He never got over finding a friend dead in the woods. Now another body’s been found in those same woods, not far from the home of Devin Lyle. And Devin’s been led to a third body—by…a ghost?
Her discovery draws them both deeper into the case and Salem’s rich and disturbing history. Even as the danger mounts, Devin and Rocky begin to fall for each other, something the ghosts of Mina and past witches seem to approve of. But the two of them need every skill they possess to learn the truth—or Devin’s might be the next body in the woods…
4.75 Hearts There is just something about Heather Graham’s books that draw you in. I read this book in one sitting staying up until 3am to finish it. Graham incorporates so much research that each book is a history lesson that you do not know you are attending or even wanted to know about. In this case the history is about Salem and the witch trials. And the story is really interesting and written well.
As with all of Graham’s books I never know who did it. I can never seem to figure it out. I am sure there are people out there that can but I am not one of them and I am pretty good usually with a mystery but not from Graham which is always exciting to not know even until the end. Rocky and Devin have an instant connection. Lately Graham’s books have started with the couple having an antagonistic relationship and I really did not enjoy that but this couple doesn’t. They have a chance meeting and they spark right away which was really enjoyable.
This is the best Graham has written in a while and that is saying something because all her books are really good.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
