"Beyond the things that science can explain lurks another world. One steeped in danger...
Emerging from the bayou like an apparition, Donegal Plantation is known for its unsurpassed dining, captivating atmosphere, haunting legends...and now a corpse swinging from the marble angel that marks its cemetery's most majestic vault. A corpse discovered in nearly the same situation as that of Marshall Donegal, the patriarch killed in a skirmish just before the Civil War.
Desperate for help traditional criminologist could never provide, plantation heiress Ashley Donegal turns to an elite team of paranormal investigators who blend hard forensics with rare-often inexplicable-intuition. Among the 'Krewe of Hunters' is an old flame, Jake Mallory, a gifted musician with talent stretching far beyond the realm of the physical, and a few dark ghosts of his own.
The evil the team unveils has the power to shake the plantation to its very core. Jake and Ashley are forced to risk everything to unravel secrets that will not stay buried-even in death..."
The 2 Beans Worth:
This was definitely an interesting read. It's a cross between paranormal and actual crime scene investigation. It was almost like watching one of those episodes where people truly enter a place and try to use scientific data to interpret whether or not they encountered a presence. Usually in paranormal romances, it's the exact same information that you get in all the others, and right now there is a plethora of them to choose from.
Different angles, different ideas, or just a different spin is always appreciated. It's refreshing to read a new take on things. It doesn't even matter if it's an idea that's already been done, if it has it's own unique quality. As long as it doesn't fit into the cookie cutter being provided, then it's worth the read. And this one certainly is.
Kudos for Graham for thinking outside the paranormal box and utilizing an idea that hasn't been done a million other books before! Oh, and you still get your romance, so no worries there.
If you're interested in a change pace, then you should definitely check out the Krewe of Hunters. There are 4 of them out there, and this is only the 2nd. So go find the books and keep reading!
