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 really like this author's Paranormal books they are always full interesting details, and history that interweave with the mystery. The plot is full of twists and turns, and no matter how much I think I have figured out who the baddie(s) is/are I always end up being wrong!

My only complaint is that the romances always feel so forced. I never feel an overwhelming passion between the H/h. They often feel "wooden" together. I think it's because the mystery story is the focus, and the romanc

Decided to leave it unfinished. She used the word "demanded" too much and it was too white for a book set in New Orleans. I think I would have liked Nikki more if she wasn't all "I'm a pristine teetotaler in this boozer town. Hey Brent, did you start seeing ghosts after having too much peyote?" Ugh.

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

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. The love interest b ...more

SMH.....I have always enjoyed Heather Graham books but this one just left me feeling sooooo disappointed. It began with a ridiculous amount of characters introduced right off the bat, none of which were ever fully developed.....ever....Ms. Graham would throw in what seemed like afterthoughts about a characters background to make it fit into the story plot at that particular moment. The ending was horrific....this book was based on characters being able to see and talk to the dead but at the end. ...more
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

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

This is Harrison Investigations #2. Nikki DuMonde runs a ghost walking tour of New Orleans. One of her employees and friend is found dead. But Andy came to her in the middle of the night asking for help. Then Nikki realizes that Andy was already dead. With the help of Brent Blackhawk, she learns that she can see ghosts. Nikki and Brent get caught in a drug smuggling operation. Are they the people responsible for the deaths?

I seriously feel like I wasted my time. Okay, ghosts you think scary, well this was not. Second, the relationship that is somehow developed in this book was so unbelievable that I want to choke on it. And the villian in the end was just so well, lame. I love to give authors a one chance to make me a avid reader and this one just did not do it for me. The only saving grace for me in this book was the interesting tidbits about New Orleans.

Standard paranormal romance. Likable protagonists. Immediate emotional connection that never is explained. Too many characters that it was a bit confusing. The changes in the POV don't help. Nice writing style and good setting. The mystery itself wasn't terribly interesting. What the novel needed was more tension. For some reason, I didn't feel it at all.
1. This was another book club pick, it was a light fun read.
2. What I enjoyed most was it took place in New Orleans, now I really want to visit that area.
3. It was kind of silly at times, and had some pretty weak lines.
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!!!!

Stars: 3 / 5
Recommendation: A neat blend of history and paranormal folded with romance and murder is what we see with this plot.

This time around the central plot revolves around Nikki DuMonde - manager of a successful New Orleans haunted-tour company "Myths and Legends of New Orleans" - and Brent Blackhawk - a paranormal investigator with a tragic past.

Every book i pick up written by Heather just seems to get better and better. It was one my dreams to make a trip to new Orleans and be able to see the old plantations and history.

Not what I would normally read. Thought I would pick up a novel-type book rather than my typical educational, or historical preference. Found the timeline, font, em, margins, paper, formatting, etc. to be a learning opportunity. As usual, if a story doesn't grab me - much like a movie - and immerse me into its entirety, I will piece apart and analyze the components.

Not a bad story or book - it's simply a book I wouldn't normally read. It didn't teach me anything, although it did give me good ref

Absolutely loved this book! Mystery, murder, and a bit of good old New Orleans history. This book has a little bit of everything for readers. This is my first book I’ve read by this author and I can’t wait to read more! Ghost Walk, was incredible. With more twists and turns then I could ever imagine up until the very end! Definitely a must read!

This is the first Heather Graham book that I have read. I wish I had discovered them earlier. I really enjoyed this one and want to look up all her work now.

I liked the paranormal aspect of the mystery. The two main characters both can see ghosts. Nikki sees the ghosts of her recently murdered employee, and a second man who may be important to the mystery. Nikki is a tour guide for a haunted places tour of New Orleans. I really enjoyed going on the tours with her, and learning about the history

I like the background and the premise of this book but as far as the characters they suck. The interaction between the characters where cringe worthy to say the least I was embarrassed for them more often than not. The native comments where unnecessary and awkward and weird.
Adrianna Barkey
I read this one on the beach, and it was fine for that purpose. The New Orleans setting didn't offer anything original, and the sappy romance scenes were typical of the Harlequin genre. The most interesting aspect of the plot was the mystery of the killer's motive and identity.

Fun book. Easy to read. Nice mystery. Loved the ghost in the cemetery and the main male character. Might have given it 5 stars but the female main character, Nikki, annoyed me at times. She seemed to get angry at the drop of a hat.
