Colleen Thompson is an expert at creating the most vivid impressions for the reader. Her descriptive phrases leave no doubt in my mind what the characters are seeing and feeling. In PHANTOM, she manages to bring all her single-title talent into the shorter category format, which is no small feat. If you're looking for an excellent short read with a bit of spooky and some thrills along the way, pick up this book.

The title is silly, and the plot is pretty outrageous, but I still really liked this book. There's lots of gun fire, car crashes, threatening louts etc. Somehow the elements like creepy dolls, New Orleans cemeteries, a crazy brother in an asylum, murder victims with glass eyes all work together, probably because the hero and heroine, Marcus and Caitlyn are likable and just flawed enough to be real. Don't look for depth or all loose ends tied up, just a fun ride.
Caitlyn's new fledging cemetary tour business has her running into Marcus Le Carpentier. Literally. And that fall is what lead them to a body which sets the story in motion. This is one rollar coaster I did, yet didn't want to end. You absolutely MUST read this book. Colleen does not disappoint her readers.

Gothic feeling and creepy, this was an entertaining and fast moving story to wile away an afternoon with. Caitlyn and Marcus are both very likable characters, and while I figured out pretty early on who the murdering lunatic was, I still very much enjoyed it.
