I believe that this might be the last book in the Krewe of Hunters series, and I have to say that I'm a little glad at that. The idea behind the ongoing series is good, but there's only so many times you can create new Krewes just to start a new love interest before it just seems a little "same old, same old".

Now I have to say that one of the things I enjoyed about this entry was that Allison and Tyler don't actually jump into bed together immediately. Graham has the pair experience sparks, but

I think the impression these stories leave depends on the theme. I like those with more detailed American history. Like this one.

Even though Allison Leigh was very annoying for almost one third of the book, I liked this story a lot. The setting is Philadelphia and Landon Mansion, a place where a young woman was killed in 1777.

Allison is a historian and she works as one of the tour guides at the mansion. She is the last one to leave and she finds her colleague dead in the room that belonged to

Allison is a historian and has the perfect job. She gets to dress in period costume and be a docent in a home built in the revolutionary period and tell tourists about it's history. It seems this house has a lot of history and Allison is very close to it. Some people even say it has ghosts.

During one such tour, a couple of precocious boys are asking some very good questions and Allison is enjoying the discussion. She speaks with the parents then sends everyone on their way. As she is locking up

Rated this 4.2 "Look Alike" Stars

Another great book in The Krewe of Hunters series.

It takes place in Philadelphia (Philly), PA. It's mainly about the Revolutionary War. Quite interesting. Historically, it's about Lucy Tarleton and "Beast" Bradley.

Re, present time, this one is Tyler & Allison's story. Tyler is a former Texas Ranger that left to become part of the 2nd Krewe. A real cowboy. Allison is a professor of History and a Tour Guide at the Tarleton/Dandridge house. This girl knows her s

Review: Uninvited by Heather Graham
5 STARS I know on Heather's krewe books my ratings as been up and down a lot it seems. This one has been more believeable if you believe in the possibilty of ghosts. Univited as a lot of history that I enjoyed and have not thought about in years. Makes me want to go and visit historcal sites. See Valley Forge, to go on the Ghost Tours visit the historical buildings of Philadelphia. Thier were some love scenes that I skipped over. Most of the story Univited tak

Having finished the books I brought with me while traveling, I bought this book at one of the airport stores because there was not much else that struck my interests. I am not familiar with this author and have never read anything by her before so I was a bit surprised that it had such a heavy romance element. The characters, especially the two leads, reminded me of those found in historical romances. Not necessarily a bad thing; just unexpected.

I actually liked the book overall; the story itsel
Allison Leigh works part time as a guide of an historical Philadelphia house where a revolutionary war murder is part of its fame. When a co-worker is murdered with a bayonet in mysterious circumstances, the FBI's elite Krewe of Hunters Team comes in to help. She is very skeptical of the 'ghost hunters' but also attracted to agent Tyler Montague.

Loved the characters and rich history in the book. Definitely enjoyed the romance as well, would have given it a higher rating except this time, I just

I give this a 3.5 rating, but GoodReads won't allow half stars.

Another great performance by Luke Daniels on the audio version for this book. He does such a great job with his character readings. I have enjoyed all of his performances.

This is another book in the Krewe of Hunters series (I'm reading them out of order and it hasn't been a huge problem). I like the American history portion of the novel (some of it was factual and some was made up by the author), but she was very thorough even with t

A Krew Novel. The paranormal mystery element of this book kept me turning pages, as I never guess the culprit until revealed. I generally like to be given a few more clues to solve the case along with the protagonist, but the paranormal element was gripping and there were several characters to suspect so I didn't miss the absence of the bread crumb trail. The Philadelphia setting is rich and well drawn, its Revolutionary history expertly interwoven into the contemporary plot. The heroine and her ...more

Ms. Graham always manages to keep me reading. I would not say this book is sensational but it is entertaining.

We have your typical romance, mystery and ghost story all in one book and it is a light, easy book to read. Something you might want to read while on vacation.

The story sways between 1777 and present. What happens in the does effect the future and present.

This is a part of her Krewe of Hunters trilogy and so the special and very elite FBI unit is called in to investigate what appears to

Elements of history, mystery, romance and the paranormal. What else could anyone ask for in a story? The Uninvited was a light, easy read that I enjoyed very much. I'm looking forward to reading more of the Krewe of Hunters mysteries.
This story surrounds the Tarleton-Dandridge House in Philadelphia where in 1777 Patriot Lucy Tarleton was killed by her British lover, Lord Bedford. At least that's what history tells us. In present day Allison Leigh a docent of the house is about to encounter death, murder, ghosts and one seriously hunky Agent Tyler Montague.

The Uninvited was an excellent read. I loved the background and history. Allison & Tyler are quite an interesting pair. The romance was slow going, but definitely wort

Welcome back Krewe of Hunters! Heather Graham delivers a solid paranormal mystery with The Uninvited. I have always loved the way that she blends history into the present to create riveting mysteries and this book is no exception. I did not want to put it down. Delve into a Revolutionary War mystery, featuring a tale of murder, of love and of the evil that men do. The characters, both old and new, take center stage while unraveling this mystery and although the paranormal takes more of a center ...more

The Uninvited features one of my favorite men from the second branch of Krewe of Hunters, Tyler.

Allison Leigh works at an old Revolutionary War house as a tour guide. She is also writing a paper on the lady who was killed, Lucy Tarleton. She was suppose to have been killed by British Lord “Butcher” Bedford.

Now one of the tour guides has been killed. A young by swears that the “Lord” liked Allison and he has seen him. Then the young boys father is put in a coma and they think that Allison is the

I love history especially history pertaining to America and how we came to be. So, while this book was fiction it did have a lot of history about the occupation of Philadelphia by the British during the Revolution. I found it intriguing how Ms. Graham mixed the story of a young patriot woman, Lucy Tarleton, with the murders of several people that occurred in present time in her house. The storyline was interesting enough to keep you guessing while also watching the two MCs growing attra

The latest entry in the Krewe of Hunters series, The Uninvited by Heather Graham is more than 3 points for me and not quite 4-maybe 3.5 stars. The Hunters are called to Philadelphia this time where a grisly murder of a docent in the historic Landon Mansion has occurred. The body is discovered by Allison Leigh, another docent at the house and the ghost of the murdered docent appears to her almost immediately.

Allison is not only a docent at the mansion, but a history professor with a specialty in

The Uninvited was an okay read, but not as good as I had expected. The story was about a colonial mansion, that was now a museum and a tourist attraction, that was said to be haunted by the ghosts of previous murders. But now, Julian, one of the tour guides has been murdered himself and soon others follow. A special unit, The Krewe, a paranormal detective team, is called in to investigate and so the story slowly unfolds. Julian becomes a ghost who dosen't know who killed him and tries to help, ...more

In 1777 Lord "Butcher" Bradford kills Lucy Tarleton, not because she was a traitor which she was and proud of it but for not loving him but playing the part.

Present day- After the days final tour Allison Leigh while making her rounds finds the body of her fellow worker and tour guide Ju;ian slumped over Bradfords desk impaled on his own replica bayonet.
It is quickly ruled suicide by the local police but Adam Harrison has other ideas and the Krewe of Hunters is called in. Tyler Montague, is first

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I decided to try "Uninvited" - described as a paranormal romance. In truth, I didn't even know that was a genre, and I'm bit ashamed to say, I liked it! What connected me to the story was that Heather Graham capitalized on the frequent occurrence that people "feel" the presence of a ghost. For me, that feeling was overwhelming as I quickly walked amount the decadent graves in Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris. "Uninvited" was set in another town filled with death ...more

4 Stars. I have always enjoyed Heather Graham’s ghost stories and this one is no exception. Actually I think it is the best one she has written lately, even though I love all of them. I am hearing this is the last of Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series. No one writes a ghost story like Graham does. Besides the ghosts who take on a life of their own (pun intended) the fact that Graham writes with so much history is what astounds me. By the time the reader is

Again I have to say this was another great one from Heather. I’ve enjoyed all her “Krewe of Hunters” novels. This one didn’t disappoint either.

This one told the story of Tyler and Allison. Love Tyler’s character. He’s such a huge guy he looks so intimidating but he’s very protective and thoughtful and intelligent. I am so glad that Heather wrote his story. Allison’s character is strong even though in the beginning everything falls apart for her. She has a hard time trusting Tyler and his “Krewe”
Kind of liked the ghost story bit. Kind of thought the romance was contrived and icky. If you have to tell us they are into each other, you haven't written the interpersonal scenes very well. I.e. instead of saying, "she couldn't believe that she was falling for him and she'd only known him one day," describe how she felt: "To her surprise, her heart quickened when he entered the room."

Well, don't quote me.

Graham spends too much time telling us how the characters feel rather than telling the st
This is the third Heather Graham book I've read in as many months, but despite some trends (and who doesn't want some trends in a series?) it was still a fun read. This one has a little more emphasis on the ghostly characters than the other two that I've read, which was a nice change. I liked the historical setting; as with the previous novels I've read, it's clear that Graham has done her research and didn't just pick a random historical house to write about. I figured out some of the twists ea ...more
I enjoy Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters series. As long as you approach them as what they are - light, easy reads with a slightly paranormal twist - they are fun entertaining reads that let you unplug from your life and live someone else's vicariously.

Allison Leigh is a professor and part-time docent at historic Philadelphia house Landon Mansion. Reputed to be haunted by the ghost of Lucy Tarleton, who was a Revolutionary War heroine and spy reputedly stabbed to death by the evil British Lord

If you follow my reviews you are probably aware that I love romantic suspense wrapped in a little paranormal woo-woo. Heather Graham is one of my favorite authors for when the mood strikes. Each of the novels can be read as standalone, as each book deals with one member of the special FBI unit and their romance. I love that each case brings us a mystery to solve and a swoon worthy guy. The Uninvited tells Agent Tyler Montague’s story as he works to solve a murder investigation.

The case is set in

Third one in this trilogy and it was a little different than first two because of a more intense story line to the mystery and not so quick to figure the who done it part which I can do quite often in some books. I enjoy any of the Krewe of Hunters books so this one can also be read as a stand alone,that is one of the good things in her trilogies.

First Thought when Finished: The Uninvited ended on a really strong note and made me hope that there are more Krewe books in the future!

What I thought of the Case: The Uninvited served up one of the strongest cases in the Krewe series. I really loved the mixture of a historical case with a current case. I didn't even get close to guessing who was involved in the murde

This is the second Krewe of Hunters book I've read. Though it is number eight in the series, it seems immaterial whether they are read in order since each book focuses on a different set of characters. Now that that important fact is out of the way, I really loved this book!

Heather Graham manages to weave a story that really does contain ghosts and a full-fledged murder mystery. Set in the historic Landon mansion in Philadelphia, site of a Revolutionary War spy and a mysterious murder. A sad pre
