it's the second book in the series. I read the first - Deadly Gamble - and enjoyed it very much. This second one didn't fail to entertain. if anything, I enjoyed it even more as
characters developed and skills and gifts deeepened and became more nuanced. I hope the author comes up with book 3 and look forward to reading it.
Ok, I prefer my mysteries separate from my soft porn - but the author is, I believe, mainly known for her romance novels and as we all know, romance novels are rife with multiple-orgasm sex. (Honestly, I can accept the presence of ghosts WAY easier than I can accept a woman who has an orgasm in under 2 minutes, followed by multiple more orgasms in similar succession. Pu-leese.) I didn't realize that supernatural-mystery-romance was a category, but I guess it is.
That being said, I pretty much loved the non-sex aspects of this book. The story was compelling, the characters were enjoyable, and the only horrible deaths happened to either people you didn't care about or people you hadn't met (I totally hate cosy-style mysteries where the nice people die!)
The reader was ok. Most of the time you could tell who was talking, though occasionally she would read the "I said" or "he screamed" in the same tone as the line itself - which is really about the editing. Ditto for pronunciation issues.
Overall, however, I loved it, quickly bought and listened to the next in the series, and will happily buy the next as soon as it gets written and recorded.
