This is the first book I've read by Heather Graham, and her jumpy writing style kept pulling me out of the plot. I couldn't really connect with the characters. The plot was decent, but I think it could have delivered more than it did. All and all, it was an okay book, but not a favorite.

I like this author's romantic ghost stories so much better than her romantic mysteries. Christina is being haunted by the ghost of a cop who was killed as a serial killer. Of course, he wasn't the one doing the murders and wants his name cleared. Adam Harrison makes an appearance as he does in most of the spooky Graham tales. Really liked this one.

Christy (who is Irish) has "the gift". Not to be cliched as in other "gift" books or movies, it really plays a minor role in the story. One ghost (unless you count when the granda dies) and one seance so I was surprised when finished that the book was actually titled "The Seance" when there was such little to do with it. This is more of a whodunit style rather than a supernatural feel. It was a great read however and I can't help but wonder what theme parks she is referring to with all the extra halloween activities (Universal Orlando?) that her relatives work for.

The story basically follows the path of proving an officers (now deceased) innocence after the fact when the "interstate killings" begin to happen again with too much detail close to the original killings for it to be a copycat killer. Enter Jed, the famous author of the "fictional" writing of the interstate killer that really condemmed the fallen officer as the killer when in fact, you guessed it, there's a twist.

Great read, some fantastic characters brought in at the end but not really used as well as they could have been. Adam could have been used allot more in my opinion.

A book well worth the read.

A really good read! Just the right amount of the paranormal, intrigue, and romance to keep me interested and turning the pages. A welcome change after the disappointment of The Dead Room!

Another great book from Graham! A group of people are trying to solve murder cases that were supposed to be solved long ago. The ghost of the accused keeps popping up to help. Finally, a seance does the trick. It's a good quick read!
