Electrifying suspense, cutting-edge psychological insight, and an unforgettably sensuous love story--these are the trademarks of Karen Robards' sizzling novels.

started June 12 2015 and then switched to another book, okay but will finish another time

A sought-after expert in criminal pathology, Dr. Charlotte Stone regularly sits face-to-face with madmen. At the age of sixteen, she herself survived a serial killer’s bloodbath. Because of the information she gave police, the Boardwalk Killer went underground, but Charlie kept her postmortem visions of the victims to herself. Years later, to protect her credibility as a psychological expert, she tells no one about these apparitions. Now a teenage girl is missing, her family slaughtered. The Boardwalk Killer—or a sick copycat with his M.O.—is back. This is the one case Charlie knows she shouldn’t go near. But she also knows that she may be the one person in the world who can stop this vicious killer, especially when she receives help from an unexpected source: The fiery spirit of a seductive bad boy who refuses to be ignored.

Received book thru Goodreads reviewers. Thoroughly enjoyed the book, especially the relationship between Charlie and the ghost. Look forward to reading more of this series (DR. Charlette Stone) and Karen Robards novels in general. ( )

Ever since Charlie Stone was a little girl, she has seen spirits. Usually the ghosts of those who have recently died violently. When she was a teenager, she escaped the Boardwalk Killer, but not until she had seen the mother of her best friend murdered. Now she is a psychiatrist who studies serial killers. She is working out of a prison when the FBI approaches her needing help with a case. Could the boardwalk killer be back? Oh, and Charlie can't seem to shake the spirit of a serial killer who died recently.

I enjoyed this book. It was the sort of book you should take to the beach and just enjoy. I like Charlie even with all her damage. And the FBI guy was nice too. But the real hottie in the book is the ghost, Granger. Please don't let him really be a serial killer. Anyway, I thought the book wrapped up a bit fast. But maybe I missed a few clues along the way. At any rate, I will be reading the next in the series. Got to find out what happens. ( )
