Book Blurb (from goodreads):
I don’t run from ghosts.”
His voice, right at my ear. “You will.”


Jaime Vegas—spiritualist, entertainer and, unbeknownst to her audience, real-life necromancer—swore she’d never do another reality ghost show after the last fiasco. But when she’s railroaded into a charity gig, she finds herself back on the set, this time with a cast of photogenic college kids, an up-and¬-coming Russian spiritualist, and a tale of missing girls and murder in New England. It’s cheesy, but that’s show business. With her werewolf Alpha lover, Jeremy Danvers, along to keep her nights interesting, it’s not so bad really. Until the bloody ghosts show up. J
aime has never faced spirits like these, and no matter how hard she tries, they won’t be ignored.

Bea's Thoughts:

I like Jaime and Jeremy so very much. I had hesitations about Jaime when she was first introduced but I like her more with each appearance. Unlike some readers, I've never hated Jaime. She is in many respects a normal person: she rarely uses her necromancer talent and never for money, she struggles with career choices and family issues, she deals with disapproval from her boyfriend's family, etc. She's not the most powerful supernatural out there although more than she once realized. In all, being a plan vanilla human myself, I find her relatable.

So it probably comes as no surprise that my favorite parts of the story were the interactions between Jaime and Jeremy. Loved, loved, LOVED them and a couple of hawt scenes. The mystery part was okay; some of it I guessed, some of it I didn't and there were a couple of real twists. The "problems" Jaime had with the production were predictable and I rolled my eyes a few times.

Overall, a good entry in the series but not the best.

I own this eBook.
