MIDNIGHT IN SAVANNAH
a city of beauty, history & hauntings. And one of the most
haunted places in Savannah is a tavern called The Dragonslayer, built in
the 1750s. The current owner, Gus Anderson, is a descendant of the
original innkeeper and his pirate brother, Blue.
summons his granddaughter, Abigail, home from Virginia, where she's
studying at the FBI Academy. When she arrives, she's devastated to find
him dead. Murdered. But Abby soon learns that Gus isn't the only one to
meet a brutal and untimely end; there've been at least two other
victims. Then Captain Blue Anderson starts making ghostly appearances,
and the FBI's paranormal investigation unit, the Krewe of Hunters, sends
in Agent Malachi Gordon.
Abby and Malachi have a
similar ability to connect with the dead;and a similar
stubbornness. Sparks immediately begin to fly; sparks of
attraction and discord. But as the death toll rises, they have
to trust each other or they, too, might find themselves among the dead
haunting old Savannah!
For anyone that knows me they know I love Heather Graham's books and
while this one is no exception it is also one of my favorites so far. I
think all the Krewe books are great and interesting. But this one drew
me in more than the others. I loved the backdrop and background she
included and the setting was well detailed and described so it almost
became its own character in the story. Along with pieces of the history
that has taken place in Savannah you could really envision the
locations where the story took place.
The mystery was intriguing
and kept me guessing. I thought the main characters had a great history
and development. And watching them learn to trust each other and learn
to get along and work together provided a great piece to the story.
The secondary characters as well were interesting and some played a key
part in the story. Also it was nice to see some of the other Krewe
members make an appearance.
As I said the mystery was well
developed and played perfectly with the setting. We were kept guessing
with the characters as to who did it all the way up to the end. And it
was definitely a complete surprise.
The Krewe books are some of
my favorites and I look forward to the next one. Anyone who hasn't read
them yet should definitely start. And you can start anywhere with
them, while characters might reoccur, the current story is completely
contained in each individual book.
