Review: The Seekers by Heather Graham

Kerri Wolf has joined the crew of The Seekers, a show that searches for paranormal phenomena, as they explore a supposedly haunted old inn on the road between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. The place is famous for its warm welcome—and infamous for being the site of an ax murder rampage in the 1920s. They’ve barely begun when a very real dead body is discovered in the basement. As a nonfiction author, Kerri is supposed to be the rational one, but she can’t explain a terrifying apparition that seems to be both a threat and a warning.

Former detective Joe Dunhill knows what she’s going through—the strange gift of being able to see and talk to the dead is a struggle he shares. A new member of the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, he’s on the team investigating the disturbing death. The town is steeped in old-fashioned superstition, and the deeper Joe and Kerri plunge into the dark secrets of the inn, the closer they get to a devastating truth. Will a bloody history be repeated? Or can the spirits of the past reach out to stop a killer?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret, I haven't read a book in this series for a while. I'm not sure why. Okay, I know why I got out of romantic suspense and some of my favorite authors went with it. It wasn't like I didn't like suspense anymore, it was I just couldn't read it. 

Because of that when I was asked if I wanted to review The Seekers my first thought was, no. But I thought about it and decided to give it a try. like I said, I really enjoy Graham's books so it would be a shame to say no. 

I am so glad I didn't. The Seekers reminded me why I enjoy her books so much. She writes wonderful characters and I love how they interact with each other. Her writing draws you into the story and takes you to a different place. 

The fun part of this story is the ghost part. I love those shows that are looking for ghosts. I watch them late at night than during the night when I use the bathroom I can't look in the mirror for fear of what I'll see. 

Sure me with crazy hair but what else?

You'll love Kerri and Joe. Both are wonderful characters. I liked how their relationship developed. You felt like you were moving along with them. 

I loved the ghost but wish they had a bigger roll in the story. The set up of the book was slightly slow but it does pick up, once it does the story really moves. It's funny how even with me being behind I jump right in and didn't feel like I was missing something. The Seekers is part of a series but can be read totally on its own. You'll love the ghost and the mystery that's happening right now. 

Are any of you a fan of hers? If you are please share with us your favorite book or series.
