Rachel is a troubled ghost hunter who is forced to return to the world of ghost hunting to save her grandma from abuse in a nursing home. She needs money and her new job investigating paranormal activity at an asylum will go a long way to keeping her Nana safe. Matt is a reality show host whose specialty is exposing the fakes and phonies who exploit believers out of their hard earned money. He takes the job to discover the whereabouts of a colleague who also went to the asylum to expose paranormal activity inside the high gated walls of the now closed mental hospital where unspeakable tortures were perpetrated against residents. He is fully prepared to expose Rachel, but finds himself drawn to her. Sparks fly as they travel through the past to discover the real story of Bremore Asylum.
Paranormal romance is definitely atop my list of favorite genres of books. I like the mystical aspects of true love being found in itself, and when a bit of the magical and mysterious is involved, I'm all in. I love the witty banter and the narration is compelling in this story. On that basis alone, I would read it again. On the flip side, I didn't see enough romance to make it reasonable for Matt and Rachel to come together so quickly. There are subplots moving through the story that, while well-developed, seem too convenient and predictable. The romantic aspect of the story seems rushed and could have been fleshed out a bit more.
The banter is worth the read.
Ms. Wright has a special skill with dialogue and wry humor that few others have achieved and I will be watching for further writing from this author!
