"Is history repeating itself in the old Miller Inn and Tavern?"

Fresh Fiction Review

The Seekers

Romance Suspense | Romance Paranormal

Keri Wolf is a writer of historical crime books. She takes a long ago crime and researches to prove who really did it. When her publicist sends her to a supposed haunted inn that was the site of a grisly massacre and lynching, Keri joins THE SEEKERS - a paranormal internet crew - with Hollywood actor Carl Brentwood, the new owner, so they can find ghosts and she can find answers. What they find is a real dead body and a young woman in white that Keri can't explain.

Joe Dunhill, is a former detective who will be entering the F.B.I. academy and soon be a full-fledged part of the Krewe of Hunters. Joe joins Agent Dallas Wicker after the body is found. Both men had dealt with Carl in Savannah (The Summoning) who called the Krewe for help. When Keri changes her story about the woman in white, Joe knows she is covering up and understands, as he is also new at seeing ghosts, but they must depend on each other to survive this dangerous mystery. The body that was found was a female F.B.I. agent searching for a kidnapped teenager. Why was the agent killed in such a ritualistic fashion? Where is the girl? Is it possible that this has something to do with the grisly past of the Inn?

THE SEEKERS is a read that will keep you glued to the pages. The danger, drama, and energy of this books will blow you away and just when you think you got it figured out ... wrong!

There are a number of fascinating characters in this book - the new owner, the crew for the paranormal internet show, the cops, the caterers, the last owner and other agents of the Krewe as well as other F.B.I. agents who were friends of the killed agent. THE SEEKERS will have you thinking hard on who the bad guy, or guys, could be.

Keri and Joe do a very slow romance. In fact, though she is attracted to him at first, she doesn't like him very much - and who could blame her. How can you fall for a guy who calls you a liar? Joe is a bit abrasive, but once they get past the ghost-seeing trouble things do start to heat up. I also like the non-graphic love scenes that author Heather Graham gives her Krewe readers. Sometimes leaving a little to the imagination is just what readers want.

One of the things I enjoy the most in Ms. Graham's books is learning about different places and different lifestyles, THE SEEKERS is set in Pennsylvania, near the Amish, and learning about the history of this area was amazing. These touches always help readers feel as if they know just where they are and what is happening.

If you love a mystery to solve (this one has one in the past and one in the present), a sweet yet steamy romance, danger, drama, intrigue, ghosts, and good guys vs. bad guys, then get your hands on THE SEEKERS.

SUMMARY

THE TRUTH IS SCARIER THAN FICTION

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?
