Heart of Evil

Mira
384 pages
ISBN 13: 9780778329985
Heart of Evil is the second in the Krewe of Hunters series

Ashley Donegal is used to history, her family home and history are a big part of the Civil War, but when a re-enactment turns deadly and it looks like the perpetrator is targeting the Donegal family Ashley and her grandfather turn to the pros- Adam Harrison’s crack FBI team dubbed “Krew of Hunters”, created to investigate crimes out of the ordinary. Jake Mallory takes a very personal interest in Ashley’s case, he and Ashley go way back and their parting was less than favorable when it became apparent that Jake had a link to the other side and Ashley just couldn’t handle it. But he would do anything to keep Ashley safe, they may not have parted friends but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t still love her.

Fans of Ms. Graham will recognize Adam Harrison from some of her previous paranormal novels and those of us who read the first in the series “Phantom Evil” will see the new FBI team on the case once again. The storyline could be read in any newspaper or TV headline in the Big Easy where woo-woo rules and is more normal than normal. Her dialogue is easy to read and will pull you right into the tale and keep your there. Her characters are all compelling and an integral part of the story. Her hero Jake is decisive and a take action kind of guy who’s not afraid to let his emotions come to the surface regarding his feelings for his leading lady. The heroine is a true Southern Belle, with all the strength and moxi it takes to fit that role. The romance is a fan favorite and mine too of second chances, do they get it right, stay tuned to find out. The love scenes are hot, sensual and sexy.

Spend sometime in the Big Easy, slow down the pace but turn up the heat with a romantic suspense with just a touch of the otherworldly. If you like ghost stories, Civil War Stories or a mystery that’s a bit macabre you’ve come to the right tale.
Thank you Ms. Graham for another interesting and entertaining trip.
