Years ago I read “Ghost Walk” by Heather Graham and loved it so I thought I would give another one a try.
At the library I grabbed “The Killing Edge.” The reason I like Graham’s books is because I enjoy having a little bit of Supernatural in my stories and she has just enough ghostly stuff to make me happy.
The one thing I don’t like about the books is that you can tell in about ten pages which guy and girl are going to hook up. I have to confess I skip alot of the “hook up” scenes cause they are a bit racier than I am comfortable with. If you enjoy a good bodice ripper I have a feeling there is some content for you too in here.
The plot of this book is pretty simple: Part-time model and psychologist Chloe Marin, a traumatized survivor of what was billed as the Teen Massacre at a Florida beach house 10 years earlier, has new reason to be afraid. Colleen Rodriguez, one of the models at Chloe’s Miami Beach agency, has gone missing while on a shoot in the Florida Keys. Investigating Colleen’s disappearance is PI Luke Cane, whose tortured past makes him a perfect match for Chloe, and the pair soon give in to their mutual attraction. Complementing the sensual love scenes are Chloe’s chilling visions of ghosts of the victims of her horrific brush with death as a high school senior. Just when Chloe thinks she can look happily to the future, eerie similarities surface between a crime in New Orleans and the massacre.
I will give Graham credit for one thing- I had NO IDEA who the bad guy was until they revealed it. It was surprising. I love the way she describes New Orleans and the other cities she uses for backdrop- she has such an appreciation for the area and it’s rich history. It makes me want to go visit the area and take it all in!
Her writing is very easy to read and I find her characters very relateable. I usually read her books in one or two sittings because you get sucked in. None of them have kept me up until 2 a.m. but they definately keep me engaged.
If you want to read next week’s book it is “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” At the time I am writing this I am not finished with it yet but the first 2/3 have been SPECTACULAR.
