SSA Rain Christiansen used to be the agency’s golden boy. It just takes one moment of weakness, one slight, tiny, itty-bitty paranormal sighting, and all of a sudden he’s the agency’s embarrassment. His boss gives him one last chance to redeem himself—go down to Brickell Bay, play nice with the local police, and leave the ghost sightings behind. Rain is determined to do exactly that, even if it kills him.
Cold-case detective Daniel McKenna’s latest investigation is going nowhere fast. Five years earlier, high school student Amy Greene went missing after leaving her part-time job and was never seen again. Daniel is glad to finally have the FBI help that his department requested, even if it does come in the form of his ex.
It doesn’t help that Rain is pretty sure he’s falling in love with Danny all over again—if he ever stopped. Add to that the frustration of seeing ghosts at every turn while he works a case that’s stalled in its tracks, and Rain is starting to wonder if second chances and happy endings are just for fairy tales.
I love paranormal and I love mystery. So this book was perfect for me.
It pulled me in right from the very first page. I really liked the mystery part, it had me on the edge of my seat while biting my nails…
To me, this was a mystery/paranormal first and a romance second. Now no worries, there is romance and there is even some very nice steam, but the main focus of the book is…ghosts. 😛
Rain is an FBI profiler with the BAU. He is a pretty straight-laced kinda guy, which is quite the feat if you look at his hippy parents and twin sister. There are only two things not so straight about him.
His sexuality and the fact that he sees and talks to ghosts.
He himself isn’t so happy about the whole ghost thing. It’s hindering his job and when his gift becomes public knowledge, he is sent on leave for a month, with mandatory visits to a psychiatrist.
When he gets back from his leave, he is send to help out the local PD on a cold case in his hometown…as a form of punishment. A town where his sexy ex-boyfriend is a detective and Rain has never really gotten over his ex.
An ex he will now have to work with and who doesn’t know his secret.
I really liked detective Danny McKenna and I also understood that he still felt the hurt of Rain leaving him. He never got over Rain either, but he is also afraid of being left behind again.
Even though these two are ex’s, they are also still friends. Awkward friends who would like to jump each other’s bones…but friends none the less. So when Danny offers Rain a place to stay, he doesn’t have to think about it.
It’s either his hot ex or his hippy sister. 😛
While working the cold case, Rain is being joined by his “stalker” ghost, who tries to help him out in exchange for Rain doing him a favor. Slowly Rain starts accepting the fact that he is not crazy and that there is a reason for him being able to see all these ghosts.
He actually starts wanting to help them….
Problem is, what will happen when everyone, including Danny, finds out his secret…
I really loved this one. I was filled with mystery and ghosts.
The MC’s were great and funny. I loved the banter between the two of them and even though there are only a few steamy scenes, they were definitely HOT !!!
I would have liked an epilogue though…. It always gives me a bit more closure, but don’t worry they it ends with a HEA. I would love for this to turn out into a series, cause I would read every single book.
Highly recommended for those who love paranormal and mystery/suspense!!!
