Read from January 19 to 20, 2012

Unseen is another novel involving Krewe of Hunter's leader Jackson Crow. He is in Texas, putting together a new crew, since his team is stretched to the limit with investigations and the characters have all been paired off. Graham delivers a novel filled with murder, mystery, suspense, paranormal activity and a new romance. I like the way the dead assist the living in these mystery driven romances.

Young woman are showing up murdered near the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. All of these young women were last seen in the area of the Alamo and a historical hotel called the Longhorn. The Longhorn is steeped in history and death. Legend has it a young woman died by the hands of a man around the time of the battle of the Alamo in room 207. Recently, the room was found covered in blood, but the body was never found. Jackson has arranged to meet US Marshall, Kelsey O’Brien and Texas Ranger, Logan Raintree. Both have uncanny abilities to find the dead and missing. Neither of them knows what this job offer is about.

When Raintree is offered the position as leader of a new team on the FBI, he isn’t sure he wants it, but his insatiable curiosity has him staying on the case. I really liked Raintree and was moved by his troubled past. He has the skills and manner to make a great team lead. O’Brien isn’t sure she wants the position. She has always lived near the water and has wanted to be a US Marshall since she was a teen. Like Raintree she is intrigued by the case.

As the team takes on more members and more bodies are discovered; paranormal activity leads Raintree and O’Brien toward solving the case. Graham weaves a tale that captivates you, as she slowly reveals clues and suspects. The chemistry between Raintree and O’Brien develops slowly and was sweet. The climax finds O’Brien smack in the middle of danger. I am excited about the new team and look forward to reading more cases.

I recommend Unseen to fans of suspenseful paranormal mysteries with a touch of romance. I have always enjoyed Graham’s novels, trilogies and series. While her novels in the Krewe of Hunters series are all linked each can be read as a standalone. Unseen is the first with a new crew and the perfect place to start. Graham’s novels offer a face-paced read and are highly entertaining. Unseen is scheduled to publish on March 27, 2012. It will be available in paper, audio and eBook format.

I want to thank netGalley and Harlequin for providing this ARC in exchange for my unbiased review.
