*This is a review of the entire Bone Island Trilogy*

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

I really didn't like this book nearly as much as I did the first in the Bone Island Trilogy, Ghost Shadow. I think it's because I didn't like the characters. Sean was annoying and I didn't care for anyone in Vanessa's crew. It was bizarre to me how excited they were to be going back to the island where their friends were killed on minute and then sad and scared the next. This one was also a little too supernatural for me. The writing seemed off compared to the last one. I guess I just didn't rea ...more

I like the way Heather Graham mixes mystery, suspense,and romance. Her characters seem a bit bland, however, and some of her scenarios are a little far-fetched. Every once in a while I'll feel myself yanked out of the story (pop!) and be like, "Really?"
Ghost Night is the continuation of the short story Ghost Memories and Katie & David's story in Ghost Shadow. This installment is about Katie's brother Sean and film script writer and diver Vanessa. A brutal slaying at a movie filming causes re

The author, Heather Graham, starts Ghost Night off by introducing the conflict first in the prologue. I mean by this, that she starts with the young adult killings of Travis and Georgina, actors who were filming on a little island in South Bimini called Haunt island. It was a interesting way of introducing the main conflict, but I must say I did enjoy it. In the beginning when it talks about a legend, the legend of why it is called Haunt island, and why the legend of Africans who came as slaves ...more

Heather Graham is a writer I favor. Her books are a combination of supernatural, romance, mystery and historic fiction. This book is one of her trilogy, Bone Island.

The story is a very interesting one in that Ms. Graham offers a lot of the Island's history concerning pirates and the ghosts of pirates.

The two main families connected by marriage are convinced to do a documentary concerning the death of a of an actress and actor who were doing a slasher film on an island off Key West. They were po

Two years ago, two actors were found murdered on Haunted Island where the film they were starring in was being shot. Vanessa Loren, part owner of the film project, found the murdered actors. In truth, she didn’t really find their bodies; she only found their decapitated heads and severed arms, grotesquely posed. The murders were never solved, but a missing crewmember was considered the prime suspect.

Now, in the present day, Vanessa has learned that Sean O’Hara and David Beckett (major characters

Second in the "Bone Island" Trilogy, "Ghost Night" brings us another mystery, another set of murders with the Becketts of Key West, along with my personal favorite character of the series, Bartholomew the Ghostly Privateer (as he's always correcting others "I'm not a pirate...").

What I like about this series, apart from the brush with the paranormal, is the author's use of history to further cement the believability of the characters and area of the state of Florida. Key West is a real city in a

While I didn't think that the first book of the trilogy was any great literary work, it at least held my attention and was interesting enough. Ghost Night, however, was less so. This one seemed a little too far fetched for me with the supernatural aspect. It's funny to hear me say that since paranormal books are my favourites to read, but this one seemed to not blend the real world and the paranormal world really well, especially in the context of the world the author had built in the previous b ...more

This is #2 in The Bone Island Trilogy.

This book is Sean's story, the brother of Katie. It involves a murder that took place 1 year ago and how Sean is going to film and find answers with the old film crew. The original film crew had 2 of their members murdered and the crime was never solved. Vanessa, one of the crew members has been having nightmares since it happened and she approached Sean and asked for his help.

This book also takes place mostly in the Keys with a side trip to Bimini. Bartholo

Disclaimer: This review is just for my memory, poor that it is on my diet of sugary substances cooked in aluminium pots. I would recommend not listening to a word I say.

I enjoyed the first one better. (Ghost Shadow). I'm about to start the third so I imagine one of two things will happen - worse or better. I suppose same is an option two. I like the mix of historical and modern. The way history is incorporated. It does give the series a point of difference. I like the setting in the Keys too. Ma

I have just finished rereading this book for a second time. My first read I loved it I gave 4 stars but the second time round I wasn't so impressed.

I like the mystery side of the story, the murder of the film stars on Huant Island at the start of the book really gets you in the mood for an good book about "who done it and how?"

I read the book trying to figure who did it, only to get annoyed at the writing style of Heather with her Leading man in this book Sean O'Hara

The problem with this book is that it's not very good. If it were really bad, I'd be able to write a scathing review which would, at least, entertain me, so I'd get something out of it. And if it were good, I'd get having read a good book out it. But it's just not very good. And there's not a whole lot interesting to write about that.

It's on the boring side. According to the blurb on the cover, Booklist thinks it's "unrelentingly suspenseful." I don't see how they possibly could have thought tha

As with the first book in this series ("Ghost Shadow"), the story is enjoyable but the writing feels rushed. The prologue is long and unnecessary; all the information it provides is rehashed in the first few chapters. There were copy-edit misses that don't truly take away from the plot or enjoyment, but they do interrupt, bringing the reader out of the flow momentarily.

The protags are both likeable characters, though with a fair amount of predictibility. The secondary characters pepper the book

I enjoyed the story line, but felt that it could have been done better. I loved the first story, Ghost Shadow and that is why I could only give this one a 4 and not a 5. I have seen how well she can do, and felt that she fell short with this story. The story moved slowly for the first half of the book. Then there were a lot of false starts and hiccups as the story moved along. The real action and meat of the story didn't show up until the last few pages. I thoroughly enjoyed the ending.

I read the first book in this series, GHOST SHADOW, in January, and I enjoyed it so much that Heather Graham immediately made my list of authors whose back list I obsessively began to collect, and I was particularly eager to acquire the other two books in this series. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in GHOST NIGHT.

Sean O'Hara is the brother of the heroine of the first book. And while he and the female lead were likeable enough, I never really connected with either of them or cared about them

This book begins a 30 page prologue explaining what happened when Vanessa Loren and her film crew who were wrapping up making a slasher film; find two of their crew mates missing. The mystery thickens when two of their heads turn up in the sand.

Flash forward to 2 years later, and Vanessa is back in Key West, where she meets with Sean O'Hara. If you follwed this story, he is the world traveling photographer who is now back home and doing a documentary with his best friend David Beckett. Of cours

The narrator did a brilliant job in bringing the cast of characters alive!

I am getting used to the formula the author uses to write books and instead of getting old it is now a comfort and a joy to listen to a story line that does not need me to over think and instead to sit back and be entertained.

I will listen to more books by this author and this narrator!

On Haunt Island near Bimini, writer Vanessa Loren is part of a crew filming a low-budget horror movie. As they complete the final wrap, someone gruesomely murders two actors Georgia Dare and Travis Glenn. Their heads are decapitated and posed in a frightening manner in the sand. The case is unsolved. For the next two years, Vanessa remains frightened and unable to sleep as she suffers nightmares from the grisly scene she saw on the Bahamas' island beach.

I have to give this one 3 stars. I really enjoyed the story and the end of the story was a good idea but it was rushed. The build up was great but the end seemed to be rushed like the author only had so many pages she could write and realized at the last minute she needed to end it. I am in no way giving up on her books. I really enjoy them and will continue with the last of the Bone Island Trilogy.

I liked this book, but it was didn't keep me as intrigued as the first book in this trilogy. Sean and Vanessa's relationship felt rushed and forced and I didn't feel the chemistry between them. It was like I went along with their relationship because the author told me to, not because I felt they were meant to be together.

Otherwise the story was great. I love how she has steeped these stories in history and I definitely love the paranormal element. I mean who doesn't love Bartholomew. I do have

The second of the trilogy, it's a good read. Danger, romance, pirates and ghosts all come together in a paranormal tale that gives a new twist to the Bermuda Triangle and the mysterious hunger that the area seems to have had for so many years. This book has only strengthened my resolve to one day visit the Keys and to be a Conch, if for but a day.

I loved this book! I RARELY give 5 stars to anything, but came very close with this one. The mystery/paranormal portion of the book is enriched by the pirate lore created for the story.

A WONDERFUL read!! I highly recommend this to all mystery & paranormal book fans!

This was very okay. I liked the first one better. I do plan on reading the last book in the trilogy, but not to see what happens with the next mortal romance so much as what happens to the ghost.

The way the 2 main characters fell, didn't really work for me. The two didn't have even a superficial relationship in the past. Lust, I understand. But I just didn't really buy in to them falling in love. I almost would have rather it been left with them thinking they might love each other.

The end, I don

In this second of three, the main character is Sean, he can now see the ghost and he is convinced to do a documentary on an unsolved murder that had occurred 2 years previous. Good narrator and enjoyable spooky story, I can't wait to start the third in this trilogy.

This was a slower paced book than the first. It was as much about how the legend could be misinterpreted as about the murder mystery. The romance portion was a little too big, too. The pace was good though so I just kept reading. All in all it was a pretty good book. Not spectacular, but good.
