In the opening of you get quite a few historical facts about the Keys which I thought was awesome, before you the know the significance of the history to the story.
Katie is this intelligent woman who just happens to have always been able to see ghost. She has a constant companion in Bartholomew,but the others just come to her when they need hel...more

I promised myself no more Heather Graham after last year's ultra-disappointing "Flynn Brothers" trilogy. But I caved, yet again. As always, the premise of the book sucked me in. I had no expectations and thought this might be something light to read while recovering from an illness. I was actually pleasantly surprised. "Ghost Shadow" is genuinely creepy, even if the killer is somewhat obvious. The second book in the trilogy, "Ghost Night" is th...more
The basic idea in the story is that, ten years ago, David Beckett’s ex-fiancé was murdered. Her body was found posed in the historical museum owned by David’s grandfather and David became the primary suspect. However, he had an ironclad alibi and the case was never solved. Now David, a successful photojournal...more
I have not read anymore of her books, so my knowledge is somewhat limited. That being said, however, I feel as though all of her characters are cut from the same cloth. Her male lead is the cl...more
Ghost Shadow wasn't horrible - it wasn't brilliant or great either. I would say I found it to be a general run-of-the-mill story with a plot that seems overdone these days. Heather Graham ladled on the drama and played up the suspense but overall it seemed to this reader that the book fell flat.
Katie O'Hara wasn't all that interesting of a character nor was David or the others that made up the meat of the st...more
I had rightly guessed who did it early on and really only had doubts briefly towards the end, but not strong enough to sway my opinion, just enough to...more
Key West is full of ghost & murder stories. David Beckett's ex-fiancee became one of them the moment her body was discovered in one of the exhibits at his father's wax museum. Ten years later wax museum has been closed for a while & the enticing Kati...more
The plot of this story was fairly predictable, and I figured out who the villian was about 1/2 way through the book. The...more
Try as I may, I couldn't finish this book. The dialogue was stunted and lacked the bounce of conversation, I felt like I was reading a Victorian novel rather than a modern day mystery. I couldn't get behind the main character -- her reason for exploring the murder and David was incredibly weak. I made it about half way through and his personality was bland and stand-offish, so I couldn't really understand why she was "drawn" to him. The story was boring, the characters dull, and there was never...more
Katie O'Hara sees and talks to ghosts. I was reminded at first of the Jennifer Love Hewitt TV show “The Ghost Whisperer”, but with less angst. The comparison didn't last long, however, as Katie does not spend her days constantly being visited by spirits wh...more

As Katie finds herself irresistibly drawn to David, wil...more
Then there's David Beckett, owner of the museum Katie wants to re-open. He, of course, nixes the idea and he and Katie end up investigating a series of bizarre murders,...more
So che questo è il primo romanzo e non l'ultimo, ma avevo letto il secondo per sbaglio, poi mi sono lanciata sul terzo.
E' un romantic suspance, con un assassino da scoprire, e con una goccia di paranormale. Il tutto ambientato in una magnifica isola della Florida.
Katie O'Hara riesce a vedere i defunti, quelle anime che camminano nel nostro mondo, e per una ragione non riesco ad attraversare la luce, e rimangono legati alla...more
Il libro nonostante sia stato pubblicato dalla collana Harmony Bluenocturne è decisamente diverso dagli altri suoi compagni, non ci sono scene di sesso bollente trite e ritrite, non ci sono vampiri che sfoggiano tutto il loro fascino demoniaco ma ci sono in compenso dei fantasmi che stanno dalla parte dei buoni, nonostante alcune loro apparizioni risultino piuttosto a...more
I found myself being only mildly attracted to the main c...more
A beautiful story of mystery an love.
The book was so well written. A tail of mystery, history and love. The story was easy to follow It started out slow but really picked up fast. I hated to put it down. I was also.most sad that it ended. Didn't guess the character in the end was the true murder.
What I liked best about the story is Bartholomew, the ghost of a pirate that follows around the female...more
The characters were believable and entertaining. Even though, it is a series, the reader doesn't feel that the book in itself is incomplete. The books ending was very gratifying...more
