Deadly Night - Heather Graham

Title: Deadly Night
Author: Heather Graham

Format read: Print copy, borrowed from library

From Goodreads:
The Flynn brothers have inherited more than a New Orleans plantation. They've inherited a ghostly presence… and a long-kept secret.
Aidan Flynn, a private investigator and eldest of the Flynn brothers, scoffs at the haunted-house rumors—especially since Kendall Montgomery, a tarot card reader who has been living in the mansion, is the one to tell him the tale of a woman in white. But when he finds a human bone on the grounds and another by the river, Aidan delves into the dark history of the Flynn plantation.
Forced together to uncover the truth, Aidan and Kendall realize that a serial killer whose victims seem to vanish into thin air has long been at work…and that their own fates are about to be sealed forever unless they believe in the unbelievable.

I really liked this book. It was a great introduction to Heather Graham's work, and I will definitely read more books from her aside from this trilogy. I was expecting something totally different – I checked it out of the library in the Romance section. I wouldn’t classify this as a romancein my opinion, I would say Mystery or Ghost/Paranormal. Either way, it was a really good book, and the first book in the Flynn brothers trilogy. There were lots of twists and turns to make you think the “villain” was this person or that person, I never figured out who it was until it said who it was. Very clever! And it wasn’t who I thought it would be, so I really liked that (and I’m glad it wasn’t who I thought it was, cause I liked them!). On the “cons” side, I would have liked to see more romance or steamy stuff, but that’s just a personal preference. I don’t think the lack of it detracted from the story at all, in fact, if there were more it would have totally changed the book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the trilogy!

This is the story of Aidan Flynn, the eldest of the Flynn brothers, and his brush with the paranormal as he and his brothers have just inherited an estate from a deceased relative.
