Not a bad thriller/mystery, but one that probably won't stick with me for a lengthy amount of time. This was a reasonably quick read, not as suspenseful as some, but okay. It was kind of coincidental that I happened to catch "Ghost" on TV while reading...some minor similarities in regards to those individuals "in between" worlds. This novel in no way blew me away, but I'd probably be willing to read more by Heather Graham. ( )

This was tedious to read. I don't recommend it. ( )

Ghost Shadow by Heather Graham
Book #1 in Bone Island Trilogy
2 Stars

Synopsis:
Katie O’Hara can see and speak to ghosts. She plans on purchasing and refurbishing a wax museum where the gruesome discovery of a corpse was made several years before. Now, with the suspects returning to Key West and the new bodies piling up, Katie, with the help of her ghostly friends and the original victim’s ex-fiancé, must discover the identity of the killer before she becomes his next victim.

Review:
The macabre details of Key West’s history are very intriguing, however, they cannot compensate for the poor writing and predictable plot. Graham has a bad habit of repeating clues as if she thinks the reader will miss them - unfortunately, she even uses the same words to do so.
The killer is also predictable and can be guessed in the first third of the book.
One of the only other positive elements is the hilarious ghost, Bartholomew, whose wisecracks make the book somewhat readable.
I will not be reading any more in the series. ( )

The first in a trilogy. I loved this book. The characters were exciting and the plot suspenseful. I love the ghost! Can't wait for book two. ( )

Good book, but not the best in the series. It seemed a bit slow and repetitive in some places. Always a good author to read. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0778327914, Mass Market Paperback)

There are those who walk among us who are no longer alive, but not yet crossed over. They seek retribution…vengeance…to warn. Among the living, few intuit their presence.

Katie O'Hara is one who can.

As she's drawn deeper and deeper into a gruesome years-old murder, whispered warnings from a spectral friend become more and more insistent. But Katie must uncover the truth: could David Beckett really be guilty of his fiancée's murder?

Worse—the body count's rising on the Island of Bones, andthe dead seem to be reenacting some macabre tableaux from history. The danger is increasing by the moment—especially as Katie finds herself irresistibly drawn to David, who may be responsible for more than just one killing….

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:00:04 -0400)

When ghost whisperer Katie O'Hara learns from a spectral friend that David Beckett may be guilty of his fiancee's murder, she finds herself drawn to David as the body count rises on the Island of Bones.
