Ghost Walk (Harrison Investigations, Bk 2)
Ghost Walk - Harrison Investigations, Bk 2 Author:Heather Graham This is no dream... Nikki DuMonde's newest employee is standing at the end of her bed at four o'clock in the morning begging for help.

But when he realizes the ghost of a slain government agent is also trying to reach out to Nikki, he knows that she, too, must listen to the dead... if she wants to keep living.« less
This was an ok novel, I thought it would some how be deeper, and a quicker read, however it turned out to be little more then a sheet grabber. A term I use to refer to books that start out with a good idea but end up copying bad romance novels with cliched haunting stories. The writer does not try to grab the reader, instead it cuts from one scene to the next like a bad made for TV movie. I wish I could have stopped reading it, but I am one of the few who cannot stop reading a novel simply because I don't like it. If the story starts, I must know the ending, for this I pity myself. Simple book and possibly fun, for those who like the easy read, and occasionally steamy books... thought not for me.
Nikki DuMOnde is an actress in New Orleans. Suddenly her best friend is killed and Brent Blackhawk shows up. He is investigating the death of an FBI agent.. who has been seen after he had died. It is soon discovered that Brent is a NA with special powers of seeing and communicating with the dead. He joins forces with Nikki and soon falls in love with her. He soon realized that his beloved Nikki might also be in danger.
If you have been to New Orleans, you will also enjoy some of the stories behind some of the places there. A hauntingly good book and realistic enough to be believable.
I loved this book. It was my first Heather Graham book and I wasn't sure if it would be my style...boy was I wrong! I especially love that the book was set in New Orleans and based around the tour groups. Couldn't put the book down, a highly entertaining read.
I love Heather's approach. She gives enough info about her main characters for you to "know" them and for you to look hard at the ones that you'd like to trust or know. This one continued to keep me interested throughout. Harrison Investigations team is definitely one to call for paranormal assistance!
