well..that's interesting. Granted, I'm not actually familiar with most of the authors...or characters. Not really the genre I follow.

 

I do kinda wish similar existed in romance if only to see how other authors do characters.

Out of the Darkness
Out of the Darkness - Heather Graham


Out of the Darkness starts off with a truly horrifying experience. Sarah and her friends are visiting haunted houses on Halloween-such a typical teenage event. But what happens at the haunted house changes all their lives. As teenagers, they did not know how to handle the trauma. They pulled away from each other, became closed off, made poor life choices, etc. This leads to Tyler and Sarah breaking up and going in different directions. 10 years later they are reunited by another tragedy. Both are still upset that the other never reached out to them. They feel like the feelings must be gone because neither ever called. I understood their reactions as teenagers, but after 10 years they should have been more mature.

The murder mystery was interesting (even though its pretty obvious who the killer is) and overall, its a well woven plot line. I found the dialogue to be really cheesy though and it was distracting from the story. Honestly, the dialogue made me not really care about any of the characters. If the killer had managed to kill them all, I would have been like "Meh. Whatever" and that is NOT how you want to feel about the main characters in a story!

If you like mysteries, suspense stories, and Law and Order type reads, I think you would find Out of the Darkness a fine read. It was a good story, but I didn't care for the character development (or lack there of).

THE SILENCED by Heather Graham
The Silenced - Heather Graham

The Silenced (Krewe of Hunters #15)

Paperback, 352 pages
Published June 30th 2015 by Mira

ISBN:  0778317994 (9780778317999)

 

 

Every once in a while, I enjoy reading a Heather Graham novel. This one, set around a new FBI agent and her best friend who works for a congressman. Meg, upon completing her FBI training, gets assigned to a division of the FBI who are also mediums. Set in Washington, DC and several areas well known for their Civil War history, the plot moves along well. Graham always seems to add a little romance to her novels as well. In The Silenced, this romance part did not seem to get too much in the way. I enjoyed the Civil War part of the story, which includes a Civil War Reenactment. While Heather Graham is not one of my favorite authors, I do enjoy reading her novels for something fun and appealing for something a little easier to read.

Underground Tombs – A Perfect Obsession by Heather Graham @heathergraham
A Perfect Obsession: A Novel of Romantic Suspense (New York Confidential) - Heather Graham

Uh oh. I don’t like tight spaces, but it looks like I will have to get over it in order to read A Perfect Obsession by Heather Graham…and I will.

 

A Perfect Obsession (New York Confidential #2)

 

Goodreads  /  Amazon

 

MY REVIEW

 

There is never any doubt, when it comes to Heather Graham, that I will grab her book without hesitation. Even a bad book by Heather Graham is a good book and I would definitely recommend A Perfect Obsession.

 

Kieran Finnegan, a psychologist, also works at the family pub and shares a bed with her FBI guy, Craig Frasier. He knows to keep tabs on her because trouble seems to find her…or does she find it?

 

A model/actress was murdered just around the corner from Finnegan’s, but nobody thought it was connected to the family…until her brother, Kevin, told her his secret.

Someone wanted her found.

 

“Living art.”

 

It’s easy to figure out that Kieran is Irish. She has three brothers. They are quick to defend and protect her, since she’s prone to finding trouble to get into.

 

We have a headstrong woman, a hunky cop, mystery and dead bodies on display in mausoleums that haven’t seen the light of day in decades, but…

 

I’m not sure what’s going on, but I’m just not getting into this like I do most of her work. Am I having an off day? Or is it because it’s an ARC and will be tidied up before publishing. I think it will get better. You’ll need to check out A Perfect Obsession to figure it out for yourself.

 

I feel on edge. I keep thinking…waiting…for “the moment”…when the monster reaches out from under the bed and grabs me.

Heather has created a sense of menace from the serial killer. I can’t put my finger on the villain. Have I met him?

 

 

Uh Oh. I think I know who it is and we have a big problem.

 

I started out having a hard time getting into the story. I don’t know why. It has all the elements I require for a thrilling read. I rarely give up on a book, and I sure wasn’t going to give up on a Heather Graham book. And it is worth sticking with. As usual, she leaves me wanting more and I can hardly wait to pick up another one of her stories.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of A Perfect Obsession by Heather Graham.
