The only reason it took me so long to finish it, is because I didn't have time to actually "read" a book lately...

The heroine of this book, Rowenna, is described as a "stunning woman. Her hair was nearly pitch-black, her eyes strikingly amber. ... Amber, like gold, and shaded by ridiculously thick lashes. She was both tall and slim, but curved in every place where a woman should have curves." O RLY, Heather Graham? Just this once, you couldn't skip the boobs and hips and make her tall, thin, gawky, and lanky? If all of your book's heroines have bodies like this, why don't they make sensible career choices l...more

A legend/myth brought to life by a madman…

Jeremy Flynn, a serious man who doesn’t believe in what he can’t see or touch, is a private investigator with his brothers’ firm. The middle brother, he was once a police diver but quit when the last straw was when a drunk foster father drove the family into the river, drowning everyone inside. Jeremy had rescued Billy, who had been still alive when found, but pronounced at the hospital DOA. The foster children had all been tied in the back of the van; n...more

This book was very much like the first one in the trilogy. Different characters, different location but same 'formula'. Hope the 3rd is better.

I didn't find it up to her usual standard, guessing the identity of the "Big Bad" at first appearance.

Jeremy Flynn is a private investigator who is trying to locate his friend Brad's missing wife. Jeremy is a skeptic who refuses to believe in anything paranormal despite his being shadowed by the ghost of Billy, the young child whose death caused him to leave his job as a police diver when he pulled Billy out of the river too late to save him.
Rowena Cavanaugh doesn't see herself as a psychic. She says she just puts herself in the shoes of the victim and can then give probabilities for what happe...more

A little predictable, but some clever aspects, and wonderful characters with plenty of excitement made for a good read!

Just after Halloween, a woman is found dead in a cornfield, made to look like a scarecrow with a slashed grin and a broken neck. When another woman goes missing just steps away from her husband, who's now crazed with panic, and the local police think he's the prime suspect, he calls on his friend, former police diver Jeremy Flynn for help finding his wife.

But this is Salem, Mass...more

Jeremy Flynn is in Salem, Massachusetts trying to help an old friend, Brad, find his wife, Mary, who has disappeared. He is joined in his search by Rowenna Cavannaugh, a native of Salem who occasionally aids local law enforcement with her psychic visions. Although Jeremy doesn't believe in Rowenna's visions, he is strongly attracted to her, and together they work to unravel the legend of the "Harvest Man", a serial killer who has visited Salem before and may have something to do with Mary's deat...more

These books get creepier and creepier! This killer sure is something else. I read this story in little bits and pieces at a time, to avoid nightmares. But it sure was good!
The formula was the same though, as the other books I have read. A woman with paranormal abilities who denies it, and a man who refuses to believe in anything paranormal, even though he has a touch of it himself as well, but that is just “good instincts”.
Jeremy Flynn is a former police diver, who quit his job after a horribl...more
Robin
Private Investigator Jeremy Flynn is contacted by his former partner, Brad Johnstone, when Brad's wife mysteriously disappears from a cemetery in Salem, MA. When Jeremy arrives he finds Brad is a suspect in his wife's disappearance, and local resident Rowenna Cavanaugh believes someone may be impersonating the Harvest Man. Soon Rowenna and Jeremy discover a body hung in a cornfield like a scarecrow, and they're afraid that Mary Johnstone may have been taken by the same killer.

This is the second...more

I've read a number of Graham's books before and I've never been this disappointed. First, as a "trilogy" ... well, it's not. The only thing tying this to the first book is that the characters have brothers -- but that's so peripheral to the story. This book was formulaic, the characters were two-dimensional (if we were lucky), and full of the "tell, don't show" style of writing. I'm disgruntled enough I might not pick up the third book.

Recommends it for: romantic suspense/paranormal
Shelves: audio-books
Heather Graham so far has a double play with "Deadly Night" and "Deadly Harvest", I loved the subtle play with the paranormal during the plot line filled with suspense and mystery. I can't wait till I read "Deadly Gift", (which I get a copy of tomorrow). If the third installment lives up to the first 2, Heather Graham will have reached that pinnacle of praises, it will end up on my re-read shelf which only the best of the best goes! :)
Gevera Bert
Heather Graham follows Nora Robert's successful formula of writing a trilogy of books, about 3 brothers, with supernatural elements. Felt like I was reading Nora Roberts. Plots of all 3 books feel contrived and forced; characters are interchangeable.
Nickie
As many of you know, Heather Graham also writes as Shannon Drake. For those of you who unfamiliar, she has written historical romance and a series of vampire books, more in keeping with her Heather Graham style; not a Stephanie Meyer type vampire.
With that being said, my problem with this book is that is a rewrite of the Awakening. The fifth in her vampire series, as Shannon Drake; very disappointing!
She reworked some of the characters and tweaked the theme, but the book even ends with same tw...more

Many peoples say that the past is doomed to repeat itself and that what this book circles around. There is a local legend about the Harvest Man killing young women just so the crops will be good and he will become the devil himself. With the story being set in today, Rowena and Jeremy travel back to Salem when a friend's wife disappears. They work together to uncover this mystery while battling their own nightmares and attraction for each other.

I found this book to keep me guessing, which I love...more

"When a young woman is found dead in a field, dressed up as a scarecrow with a slashed grin and a broken neck, the residents of Salem, Massachusetts begin to fear that the infamous Harvest Man is more than just a rumor. But out-of-town cop Jeremy Flynn doesn’t have time for ghost stories. He’s in town on another investigation, looking for a friend’s wife, who mysteriously vanished in a cemetery.

Complicating his efforts is local occult expert Rowenna Cavanaugh, who launches her own investigation,...more
Cindy Bidwell
Is the supernatural realm real? Many of her Heather Graham’s characters in Deadly Harvest whilst generally open to the possibility of supernatural phenomenon don’t really believe that it is very probable. A lot of their decisions and discoveries seem to be made with supernatural involvement, but each character’s level of skepticism leads you to believe that there could be are other more plausible explanations.

Heather Graham uses this balance between the supernatural and the mundane is quite eff...more

I very much enjoyed this book, so much so, that every time I tried to put it down yesterday, I found myself picking it back up again in a matter of moments. It was nicely creepy, with just the right amount of romance and nice characters.

I did figure out one aspect of the mystery early on, but the author still managed to surprise me with another aspect. And I know that vague, but I don't feel like using spoiler tags right now.

One thing that was a little jarring was the fact that the author tended...more

I liked this book more than the first book, Deadly Night. I felt the action was pumped up, the drama was pumped up. I liked the characters more.

Jeremy Flynn, the middle Flynn brother, has come up to MA to help his friend and ex-partner find his missing wife. While there he and the woman he swore to himself that he should stay away from, Rowenna, become involved in an investigation on a larger scale than they had initially expected.

The female lead, Rowenna, who may or may not be psychic. That wa...more

When Jeremy takes on the "job" of helping his old partner and buddy find his missing wife, he never knew it would change his life so much. Mary, his buddy's wife, disappeared in Salem, on Halloween, on a vacation that they were taking to try and rebuild their broken marriage. When you add all that up it equals Brad, Jeremy's buddy, looking like the angry husband who came on this trip to rid himself of his wife in a completely explainable way. Jeremy had to finish up some things for his charity b...more

Aidan, Jeremy and Zach Flynn inherited a mansion outside of New Orleans from a great-aunt whom they have never heard of before her death. Aidan, the oldest of the brothers, and his now-wife Kendall deal with their own ghosts that haunt the mansion in Deadly Night.

Deadly Harvest opens in New Orleans just before Halloween as Jeremy Flynn is involved in a series of debates with Rowenna Cavanaugh on the use of paranormal abilities in detective work. Rowenna is open to the possibilities but Jeremy i...more

The 2nd book that I am reviewing is Deadly Harvest by Heather Graham and is the second book in the Flynn brothers trilogy. In Deadly Harvest, Jeremy (another Flynn brother) is trying to help his good friend find his missing wife with the help of a possible pyschic named Rowenna. This was the perfect read for me right now as it was set in the fall and talked about the cooler weather and the leaves changing. Plus, it had the scary legend of the Harvest Man who was thought to be a killer coming bac...more

Yuck. I always hate writing a negative review, it makes me feel so badly for the author. But this book really stunk. Predictable, repetitious, boring dialogue, stereotypical relationships,characters that could be interchangeable, a head-scratching inclusion of the sort-of-supernatural....and a depiction of the city of contemporary Salem, Massachusetts that is completely misleading. Top that off with an audio reading that gives the characters crazy southern accents and I'm left cringing. I can't...more

I enjoy heather graham's stories. even though they are somewhat predictable, the formula works for her. I love the Krewe of Hunters and now I am about to start the third in the Flynn brothers trilogy. I liked the first one and the history. I like that the brothers are close and work together. they are likable characters.

This is book 2 of the Flynn brothers trilogy. It's about Jeremy Flynn, the middle brother. He starts out by fighting an attraction to a woman he considers a flake: Rowenna Cavanaugh, an author who writes non-fiction about all things psychic. Jeremy gets a call from his ex-partner (he used to be a police diver) who is frantic about his missing wife, and he rushes off to Salem, Massachusetts to help. Rowena, a native and sometime resident of Salem, is also on her way home. She's gotten a call from...more

What a suspenseful story set in Salem, Mass. It has the thrill of witches, demons and such after a young woman goes missing the cemetery, with her husband right there. A popular author that is local, meets up with one the Flynn brothers and he is called in to help in finding the missing woman. Little does the she know, the author has some usually powers that she isn't even aware of and she joins in on the investigation to find the missing woman. Unfortunately, the author puts herself in the midd...more

I always like Graham's ateention to detail and her tendancy to get her facts stright, and even when she embelleshes them, it's for the good of the story. In this one, I was so happy that she actually knew what she was talking about when it came to Wicca. Not only that, but that she threw in the misconceptions and attittudes of those who think they know everything, actually don't but spew wrong statements anyway, that wiccans have to deal with, but did it without being over the top or making it s...more
Amanda
Another fantastic book in this series. This one gave me chills and creeped me out while reading it! I always enjoy when that happens because it doesn't happen enough. The story line is really interesting and the writer does her homework. There were mentions of Paganism and things in this and you can tell she did her homework. Too often I get frustrated with books where they just follow the trend of whatever the popular thinking is, not with this. She goes with the facts and setting things straig...more
Jessica
Ending/solution to the mystery was a little out there for me (at least part of it), and the romance is very abrupt, as in, the gero and heroine pretty much fall into bed right at the start, which I never like. It sort of mentions that they've known each other for a couple of weeks and have been attracted to each other with that instantaneous chemistry right from the start. But I would have liked to see that relationship explored more. As it is, it feels like a bad case of the "insta-love" shortc...more
