I starlet disappeared over 6 centuries ago and her descendents want revenge. But Eve doesn't believe in ghosts because ghosts can't shoot guns. ( )

4.5 stars rounded up because this was just that good! The stories are a combination of hot and deliciously creepy (or deliciously disturbing in most of the stories!). I think my favorite was Laylah Hunter's story 'Resurrection Man'. So good!!

Haunted in Death by J. D. Robb - I listened to the audio of this one and reviewed it earlier. It was an entertaining story that had ultra-rational Eve confronting a ghost. I liked the by-play between Eve and Roarke in this one. The story was well-told and well-read.

Poppy's Coin by Mary Blayney -- This is a historical romance centered around a magic coin. A gentleman, short of coin and the guardian to two young children, takes a job as a companion for a rich widow and then has to deal with falling in love with her without feeling like he sold himself to her. It was a nice romance.

The Passenger by Ruth Ryan Langan is a contemporary ghost story. The hero and heroine meet in the wilderness where she is trying to get a story of a mysterious light on a lake and he is beginning a daredevil quest of survival. They meet when his plane crashes and she finds him and fall in love - guided by the spirit of her dead mother. It was also entertaining as the two lonely people decided that they had found the perfect person for each of them.

Mellow Lemon Yellow by Mary Kay McComas -- I abandoned this one when the male lead (at least I think so) made his first appearance at the heroine's father's funeral wearing ruby red slippers. Apparently the heroine was the only one who could see him. I didn't have the patience to keep reading and figure out what was going on.

All in all, the J. D. Robb story was great, the other two stories I read were entertaining, and only one didn't suit my taste. ( )

The theme for this series is paranormal with some romance. I say some because really Eve Dallas, while romantic, is more futuristic detective than true romance.

Haunted in Death is an Eve Dallas story. There's a murder, there's a skeleton found and theres a story to unravel. There's also strange goings on in the building and Eve remains skeptical while all around her ask if ghosts are real.

Poppy's Coin by Mary Blayney could have lost the framing story of an American abroad and not missed much, except possibly the reinforcement of the magical elements of the coin. The story is mostly about a couple in Regency England and their wishes for love. Pretty standard story.

Ruth Ryan Langan's The Passenger is a story about a ghost, some people who need each other and some stretching of time. This one came across as the story with the most paranormal elements. A bit predictable though.

Mellow Lemon Yellow by Mary Kay McComas is the story of a woman whose "imaginary friend" comes to visit when she loses her parents and helps her find a more solid sense of self and love.

Overall the J D Robb story was the most solid, the others were pretty predictable romances, readable but nothing that really stood out exceptionally. ( )
