✓ Read ñ The Seance by Heather Graham È The heroine started seeing the ghost of a cop who was accused of being a serial killer 12 years ago But now new victims are killed with the same MO So is it a copycat or is the ghost s claim of innocence the truth She needs to find the truth especially since she bears an uncanny resemblance to the other victims.
Another good suspense, this time based in Orlando, around Halloween to provide just that added touch of costume weirdness.
The Seance Heather Graham Paranormal Suspense Christina Hardy just moved into her grandmothers house after her passing Her friends decide she needs a housewarming party At this party they decide to have a seance, dragging out an aged Ouija board.
They summon up the spirit of Beau Kidd, the lead detective on a murder case over a decade old Beau was found at the scene of the crime, near the victim and shot dead by his partner some say his spirit never rested Beau s sister Katherine, then a child never believed he was guilty She is determined to prove her brothers innocence.
Christine, who is in doubt of her ability to make contact with the dead, soon starts to see Beau Not sure if this is real or a dream, she starts to believe Beau is innocent.
Page turning suspense, with humor, romance, and paranormal activity, I found this to be a fun read.
Right off the bat, I d admit I was intrigued by the talking to the dead aspect of things, this was my first book like thatbut the book just had a dryness to it that I couldn t overcome.
The characters were under developed Jed came and went as an enigma Even Christina had no true depth or substance, besides being a tall, beautiful red head I couldn t tell you how many times that was written I think I liked the ghost the most and was truly sad to see him go Next I liked the dog He showedpersonality than the lot The romance wasn t developed Yeah it went under the heading of having had a crush forever etc.
but Jed sorta came off as a lil sick.
because all of a sudden he is INTO herno, hey she is a mature lady and wow my feelings evolved It came overas the old teen who was secretly lusting the 12 year old, despite her gangly limbs And one time at the Personal Response My response to this book is that it was pretty good It had some confusing points, but overall it was okay I am reading some of her other books that she has written Plot Summary This girl named Christina has the ability to see ghosts, and she has been able to talk to them for her whole life There was a recent killing, and the police said that it was a copycat killer to the horrific events of a killing that had happened twelve years earlier When Christina moves into her grandmother s old home she finds an old ouija board Her close family members and the friends that she had over to help her move her stuff ask if they can use the board She reluctantly tells them yes, and they all sit down to begin As they are using it, Christina feels that there is a ghost there in the room with them Except that she is the only one that Picture this A book where the main character has to communicate with the ghost of the murderer Sound great right Full of promise All you ll get out of this book is the main two characters constantly asking eachother Are you okay and occasionaly making out in the hallway This book would be two stars if didn t show such potential, I loved the concept and the main character for the first thirty pages I even liked the plot twist at the end.
Unfortunately, nothing ever came out of this as the main characters became two flat pieces of paper falling in love The story slowly gets sidetracked by the these lovebirds attending festivals and having witty conversations about commercial jingles The ghost contributes nothing to the story at all And having a book that gets so close and then falls s 4.
5 starsThe Seance was one of those books that I just could not put down Addictive, fast paced, thrilling, and thoroughly fun, it had everything I wanted to read mystery suspense, romance, paranormal and reminded me of R.
L Stine for adults Of course it s not serious fiction, who wants that when picking up a book that looks like this It s fun brain candy, plain and simple, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that I haven t had an easy time finding books to read because my concentration level has taken a nosedive, but this book had me hooked from the back synopsis and kept me hooked throughout Yes, there are some editing issues, coincidences, red heads seem to be the main populace, redundancies e.
g victims are attractive red heads, beautiful red heads, gorgeous red heads, and did I mention Christina s a beautiful, attractive, gorgeous red head also Argh, it was annoying
Another disappointing Heather Graham The characters are awful, constantly overacting and acting ridiculous The main romance came out of nowhere, even though it was I knew from the back of the book who was going to get together None of the emotions were believable, everything was told, not shown, nothing was logical, even considering the fact that we were dealing with ghosts I won t read anyof her books.
