Oh boy, where to begin.... I've enjoyed Heather Graham's books in the past as the fun brain candy they can be, sadly this wasn't one of them. I can't say it's a terrible book, but it's far from good. Everything is just so lifeless, the characters, the mystery plot, the romance, everything was lame and weak. Which brings me to the dialogue which is clunky and often awkward. At one time, Nikki, the main character, had just come from her best friend's funeral and is now at the after-servic

I enjoyed this paranormal romantic suspense book by Heather Graham. I especially liked the two main characters, Brent Blackhawk and Nikki DuMonde. There were enough characters in the book, that the murderer was not instantly obvious.

Nikki DuMonde is crushed when her friend and fellow employee is found dead. She is confused by the fact that she is certain she awoke during the night to see her friend standing by her bed at what she now knows is the exact time of death. Soon, it becomes obvious to

Once again I have to say I wish I had found Graham a few years ago when her books first came out. I am enjoying these ghost stories. Nikki's newest employee has been killed and her ghost comes to Nikki for help but she freaks (of course). Brent comes into the picture who has seen ghost all of his life to help Nikki and to solve the mystery. I made it all the way through this book without a clue of the "who and why" and I love that. The one thing I would complain about? Nikki's BFF Julian.. His c ...more

Nikki DuMonde is used to sensing ghosts, after all, she and her colleagues and friends give tours in New Orleans. O they are careful never to state that ghosts exists, but Nikki just senses that there is something around. How else to explain the sudden cold spots, or the strange mist she sees at times. But seeing her friend Andy at the foot of her bed after a night out at the town, is not something she has experienced before. Especially when she is awakened by the police who tell her that Andy h ...more

I don't like ghosts....period!!!! If I read about them, I dream about them so that keeps me far away. BUT...I've read Heather Graham before so trusted her. And was glad I did. I had no dreams and the book turned out to be very captivating. I enjoyed it...but I still don't like ghosts!!!!

Enjoyed the setting We made a quick trip to New Orleans so I decided to read this book before we left. The author's description of the city and the charcaters who live there are exactly what you can expect to find, and was spot on. I enjoyed being at the same places where the charcaters roamed, namely the famous cemetaries like LaFayette, as well as following the lives and footsteps of a ghost tour guide. The main plot was an interesting murder mystery (actual double murder) and had some twists. ...more

Didn't really get into this book, the author used that third person multiple point of view style that I can't stand. I skipped the other points of view and just stuck with the two main characters.

I have other books by this author that I picked up at the thrift store already, so I'll probably read them. But I won't be picking anything new up from this Author.

When Nikki DuMonde wakes up in the middle of the night to find her newest employee standing at the end of her bed begging for her help she thinks it's a bad joke. However when the police inform her that Andy was murdered at the same time Nikki saw her, Nikki starts to doubt her sanity. Brent Blackhawk is a paranormal investigator looking into Andy's case who has the ability to talk with the dead. He soon realizes that Andy's ghost isn't the only one reaching out to Nikki, and knows that she must ...more

There is nothing like a good ghost story and murder mystery set in New Orleans.
Nikki works as a tour guide in New Orleans, pointing out all the local flavor and history of the city. She and the other few employees that work for the agency are also very close friends and share much of their life with each other. But when one of the newer girls' shows up in Nikki's bedroom late one night after an all0nighter, Nikki doesn't think it's very funny and goes back to sleep. It's not until the next morn

I think I have found a new favorite author! Heather Graham tells a wonderful story. She really does the research on the subject she is writing about. I think.....I think.....no.....I love her!

The setting of this book is down in LA right in the heart of New A'leans. We all know how old the town is and in any old town with cemetary's and the dead are burried above ground there must be a few ghosts around to tell the story. The company that does the "ghost walk" tours know only some of the history,

This book was a classic 'easy read' romance. It was a nice light read that I was able to get through very quickly, which is a plus in itself.

Nikki DuMonde lives in New Orleans and runs a ghost tour of the city with many different routes. She and her co-workers take tourists around telling tales about all kinds of famous city residents and their sometimes lurid histories. They meet their tourists at a coffee shop which becomes their de facto home away from home.

Everything is going very well until one day a bum runs into Nikki and her co-worker, Andy, while they are getting coffee. Nikki looks at the man and she thinks he is a little d

Another magnificent paranormal suspense by Heather Graham. This adventure precedes the 'UN' and 'Evil' series, during which a couple of Krewe of Hunters teams were established. However, head honcho, Adam Harrison, forms part of the story, now, though, he is working with single people and not (yet) officially connected with the FBI. This makes things a little more awkward for his 'agent', but Adam has major connections and his 'private agency people' are accepted readily enough, especially when i ...more

Nikki is very surprised when she looks up from her groggy/tipsy sleep and sees her coworker and friend Andy at the end of her bed in, what looks like, her pajamas. They all went out on their boss that night and Nikki admits she came home a bit on the drunk side, so she figures she just must be in a weird dream state. Only problem is, Nikki really feels awake and she can hear Andy asking her for help as clear as if she really was there, so the only thing Nikki comes to decide is that her friends ...more

I'm not a huge fan of Heather Graham but read this one anyway. I know alot of folks love her books but I just can't see any point to them really.

This ghost story set in New Orleans is one of those books that you really felt like you knew exactly what was going on. It's about this girl, names Nikki, who gives ghost tours in New Orleans. She feels that she can feel a sense when it comes to ghosts, but she will never admit that. She really begins to see ghosts when her friend and co worker dies of an overdoes. Many people just assume she did it herself, since she was a previous druggie, but Nikki is almost certain she was murdered. While s ...more

I loved this book and was thrilled to see that it is part of the Investigation Series. So that means I have more books I have to read!! Loved the fact that the bad guy ends up being someone totally different from who I thought. It's a great ghost story with twists and turns along the way and has a little romance thrown in. Fun and fast paced read!
Patti
At first, I was confused with all the different characters. It was hard to keep them all straight. I thought the story slowed down a little with all the tours and explanations. I got hooked trying to figure out who the bad guy was. The ending was okay--Just a little "Scooby Doo-ish"--when they said...oh this is the bad one right here who really isn't who he says he was.
I loved the hero, I thought Brent was a great hero. I'm sure he was a hunk. I just hated that the scene that brought both of th

I was sadly disappointed in this book. The plot didnt grip me the way Graham's usually do. I was mildly curious to see what happened but that was about it. I felt that everything about this book from the plot to the romances was underdeveloped. The sex scenes were uninspired and while i didnt dislike the leads i didnt really connect to them either. the plot was a good idea but i felt it dragged on way too long then wrapped up far too fast. almost 400 pages and only the last 5 or so explained the ...more

I'm not sure what I think about this book. It wasn't badly written, but the story seemed weak and seemed to drag on a little too long. All the friends in this book are annoying -- most of their conversations are the same. The tease the main character about her non-dating habits and they talk about the tours they lead. There wasn't enough character development on the supporting characters to make them remotely interesting.

This book is probably not worth re-reading. The mystery/puzzle isn't develo
