Lexington House, overlooking New England's jagged coastline, has been the witness to madness and murder throughout its history. But for decades that malice has thankfully lain silent... until now. Jenna Duffy is a member of the nation's foremost paranormal forensic team. Yet nothing could have ever prepared her for the vicious slayings that once again took place at Lexington House or for that of the the sole suspect in the case, a 17-year-old boy. With the young man's life hanging in the balance, Jenna teams up with hotshot attorney Samuel Hall to prove just who (or what) is responsible for viciously ending the lives of those who reside inside Lexington House.
Normally I'd probably have given this book four stars but being that it was SO much better than the previous two stories in this series, I chose to go ahead and give it five. The fact that I hardly ever wanted to put it down and finished it in less than two days also helped. Not only did this book have a wonderful blend of romance and suspense, but I enjoyed the historical and paranormal elements too. It's been a long time since I've read, watched or just plain seen anything on the Salem witch trials, so this was a nice little history lesson. Honestly, it was just enough to whet my appetite and when I was finished I couldn't help but look for more info about the tragedy.
As for Jenna and Sam, I thought they made a lovely and charming couple. Their chemistry was incredible and I ended up absolutely adoring Jenna, who up until this point has been pretty low-key and seemed to play more of a background role for the Krewe. Jackson and Angela (Book 1) also play large parts in this one which I was very happy with. From the murders to the ghosts this story was graphic, heartbreaking, and often gave me the chills. Start to finish, this book grabbed a hold of me and never once let go. The only things that bothered me were Sam who acted like a macho jerk early on and the fact that there were some name mix-ups that threw me off a few times.
Setting: Salem, Massachusetts
Pages and Kindle Locations: The story itself contained 368 pages and ended at 98% and location 4296 on my kindle device.
1 the author always makes the women seem weak. the man always seem to be questioning whether they can handle themselves or not even though they are FBI agents. I don't understand this.
2 it seems we have to have this crazy sexual romantic scene. And I'm not saying it's not nice to have a little bit of love in these books but do we have to have so many pages of this love scene? I swear this is my last time complaining about this cuz I complain about this every single book in this series so far.
that being said another thing I keep repeating is this definitely needs to be a series on TV. Maybe HBO with all this sex. It plays out like criminal minds with I don't know if anybody will remember this show, ghost whisperer. It was a show that came out I believe on ABC and it had Jennifer Love Hewitt. It was a really good show until they decided to kill the main guy for some reason and then bring him back but with another actor who was weird.
I've loved Jenna's character, and her ability to see spirits in the past is such a great asset to the team. Sam is successful and handsome, as with most people is a non-believer of what lies out there that can't normally be seen. He's a lawyer that searches for the truth, but always with facts.
But Jenna and Sam being together were definitely a couple that took longer to grow on you. They didn't seem to mesh together in the beginning and it took longer for them to create a bond between them.
The mystery itself was great. I had no clue until the end who the murderer was. She can definitely write her mysteries.
I totally loved the setting, Salem has been one of those places that I've always wanted to go but just haven't had the opportunity. Heather wrote the history and scenery so well that I felt like I took a trip there myself.
The one thing that was missing was of course, some of the "Krewe" characters. Although some where physically there, we didn't get to see the entire "Krewe" together using their talents that made them so successful in the past. I felt like I was missing part of the family.
Another great mystery, for you mystery lovers out there. Definitely recommend this series...
