Reclusive collector Cutter Merlin is seldom seen in Key West—lately, not at all. Officer Liam Beckett visits Merlin's curious house and discovers the gentleman in his study. In his death grip: a volume of occult lore and a reliquary. His eyes are wide with fright, his mouth a horrified rictus where spiders now dwell.

Kelsey Donovan returns to the old house to catalog he

I liked this one a little more than the 2nd. I still figured out a lot of it half way through. I thought the ending was too rushed. I can't figure out why Bartholomew only got a half of a page at the end. He was my favorite part of all 3 books.

Wow. I bought this book at the airport, and my first impression prompted me to look up the author information to figure out how this person ever got published. Author of "more than a hundred novels"? Yikes. To be honest, I never finished the book. I found it unreadable. There may be an interesting story in there somewhere, judging by the praise other reviews here have heaped on the thing, but I couldn't find it. All I found was a painfully juvenile writing style, lacking in sophistication and an ...more
This one wasn't quite as creepy as the first two in the series. Things took a more serious tone here, delving into Satanic rituals and whatnot. Although this one wasn't as creepy, I think I liked the romance between Liam and Kelsey best of the three. It was just too sweet, and made my sappy heart happy. Great series, especially for audio!

Heather Graham’s novels seem so much like her: full of life, vibrant and a good friend. So it’s no surprise that Ghost Moon lives up to reader expectations of this prolific author. While I hadn’t read the previous two novels in this trilogy, I had no problem following its thread as Heather deftly weaves the tale bringing readers up to date as they fasten their seatbelts for a ride through the unusual.
Ghost Moon is the 3rd in the Graham’s Bone Island Trilogy. This novel skillfully combines parano

(excerpt from my blog post http://tiffany-a-higgins-book-reviews...)

First of all, I have been posting how close to certain that I was that I had flushed out the killer early on. Boy was I ever wrong! I had not predicted that the truly guilty party actually had any part in it whatsoever. I was pleased to find that Graham had thoroughly steered me wrong with all her clues and insight. I guarantee I went exactly where she wanted her readers to go.

The book is a nail biter, keeping the reader on the

*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

This book, part of Heather Graham's Bone Island trilogy, is a real pleasure to read. Easy going, yet filled with suspense and history.

Set in Key West and dealing with the history of the island. The story is amazing in such a gentle way and easy way.

The reclusive old gentleman who has lived on the Island his entire life has not been seen around town in quite awhile. This draws the attention of Liam Beckett, the town sheriff. When he goes to see the old man (Cutter Merlin) he finds Cutter dead at

Heather Graham writes books that are down-right spooky. I keep telling myself I really don't have to read them; HOWEVER, I am always there, ready to read what she's written.

Cutter Merlin hadn't been seen for several weeks, so local cop Liam goes to see about him. He finds the old man dead, and has benn for several weeks. The local coroner tells Liam the old man had the same look on his face that the deceased's daughter had when SHE died, that of being frightened to death Now Liam has to notify K

I was surprised to find out this book was a romance, thinking it was just going to be a good old ghost mystery. But the good news is the "romance" part wasn't too heavy so that was OK. Since it took me 7 weeks to read it, it wasn't a "page turner" by any means. I did keep picking it up and reading because I wanted to find out "who did it". It was easy to read and could easily be read in a couple of days if you put forth any effort. A read on the beach book where it is easy to doze in between cha ...more

The final in the trilogy and a nice wrap up to the story of several friends that have appeared throughout the trilogy.
I was a little disappointed that the previous 'main characters' in the first two books weren't involved a little more in the final book, but the story was still good.
There was still a lot of mystery and romance involved, and a touch of the paranormal sprinkled throughout the story.
I have not had the pleasure of reading the first installment of the trilogy, which is something I h

A good book to end the series. I thought this book was more suspenseful than the other two in the series. I figured out who did it, but not until almost the end. I also liked that Bartholomew got a proper send off. The only irritating thing was the way Liam and Kelsey' s relationship proceeded. You leave when you are a teen, don't talk to the person for 10 Years, and on the 2nd day back you are in love? Seemed rushed to me.

Well read audio book, sorry I had not read the two previous books. I found it interesting because I have lived near Key West and could relate to the characters. A short audio book worth listening to.

This is the third book in the series of bone Island. I believe this is the best. When Kelsey Donovan's grandfather died, she was his only heir so it was left up to her to take care of his possessions. Her grandfather was a collector among other things and he had wished a lot of things be donated to museums and Kelsey made plans but sometimes life gets in the way. She had lived in the Merlin house when she was growing up and Liam Beckett was her best friend but after her Dad had taken her to Cali ...more

I really enjoyed this series. I fell in love with Bartholomew and the other characters. They made me laugh and wonder if they would make it as loving couples. Boy were they ever loving couples , in the morning noon and night and anytime in between. Mrs. Graham congrats on another wonderful series

can not get into this book, characters were annoying the plot was good, however due to being annoyed by the characters it made it harder to enjoy the story. Loved the history mixed into the story, however just cant give it any more stars.

A fun and fast paced read that delivered on its promise of murder, mystery, and creepiness. The touches of the supernatural were tasteful and not overt and the villain was properly deranged and patient. It wasn't as creepy as I was expecting though it was fun and a light read. I'm a huge fan of Bartholomew, he made the book :)

I definitely thought this book was the best plot-wise of the trilogy, but the series overall had some glaring dislikes for me. Firstly, I've come to the conclusion that I really don't like the way Graham writes her leading men and her romances. I really wanted to like Liam. He was a great minor character in the two previous books, but as with the previous male leads in this trilogy (David and Sean) I felt his desire to 'protect' the female lead was over the top and controlling. It was very cooki ...more

Ten years ago, Kelsey Donovan’s mother fell down the staircase of their Key West home. Although she had died of a broken neck, there was a look of terror on her face – widely open eyes, mouth wrenched into a rictus of fear – that far transcended the momentary fear of falling.

Now, Kelsey’s maternal grandfather has been found dead in a chair, with a reliquary, a shotgun and a book on the black arts in his hand. And he also has that exact same look of terror on his face as did his daughter.

I'm hit-and-miss with Heather Graham, but I really liked this story. A great combination of history, mystery, ghosts and romance - what more could you ask for?

Cutter Merlin is the elderly, reclusive owner of a big old secluded house in Key West filled with the treasures he's been collecting his entire life - gargoyles, voodoo altars, lucky Chinese cats, statues of the virgin mary, and even a real Egyptian mummy. He lives there along following the tragic death of his daughter years before from a

This was an excellent book. I think I enjoyed this one the best out of the trilogy. Strange things were happening throughout the book. I started out thinking some kind of spiritual thing was going on. I moved on to believing the evil was in a human heart because that is what was emphasized by Liam Beckett, who happened to be a police officer. Eventually, I became positive it was some sick person doing the scaring, threatening, and killing. I found myself feeling very satisfied with the main char ...more

I wasn't blown away 2nd time around yet again same story as the 2nd book in the trilogy yet different main man this time Liam.
He was a great back ground character in the last 2 books seem really awesome but in this book he just across as extremely desperate pining over a girl/woman that left Key West 10 years or so in the past.

Kelsey's character in the end was just a COPY of Vanessa(book.2) but a little bit better not as toxic towards Liam

I really enjoyed the first book in this trilogy, GHOST SHADOW, but was disappointed with the second book, GHOST NIGHT, so I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. And while it wasn't as good as I remember the first book being, it was much better than the second book. So I guess that's a happy medium.

Like the second book, the writing sometimes felt a bit amateurish, but I liked both Liam and Kelsey, despite there not being a lot of depth to their characters. Kelsey wasn't much different than
