My rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐️
Devin Lyle has recently returned to the Salem area, but her timing couldn't be worse. Soon after she moved into the eighteenth-century cabin she inherited from her great-aunt Mina—her "crazy" great-aunt, who spoke to the dead—a woman was murdered nearby.
Craig Rockwell—known as Rocky—is a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI's team of paranormal investigators. He never got over finding a friend dead in the woods. Now another body's been found in those same woods, not far from the home of Devin Lyle. And Devin's been led to a third body—by...a ghost?
Her discovery draws them both deeper into the case and Salem's rich and disturbing history. Even as the danger mounts, Devin and Rocky begin to fall for each other, something the ghosts of Mina and past witches seem to approve of. But the two of them need every skill they possess to learn the truth—or Devin's might be the next body in the woods..."
Dark brooding mysteries and delicious thrills in this new Krewe of Hunters novel by Heather Graham!!
FBI agent Craig Rockwell, 'Rocky', has been followed by the unsolved murder of a childhood friend. When he is accepted as part of the Krewe to investigate a new murder with the same MO thirteen years after the original one, he feels he finally has the back up he needs to follow his instincts, and his ghostly guidance. Especially needed when he is back where he grew up, looking at old friends and school mates as possible suspects now.
Her discovery of the body of a woman near her cabin has put Devin Lyle in the middle of a murder investigation that brings Rocky to her doorstep. She is stunned to find he can see and interact with her dead great-aunt Mina, who is trying to help with the investigation, which seems to point at witchcraft. Something Devin can assist Rocky with. But they find they have more than this investigation in common..
Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters books are the rare exceptions to my 'no paranormal' rule!! Her story lines always stay rooted in the here and now, even though the route to get from question to answer may be under the guidance of a spirit or two! The open minded attitude toward all that is possible yet unseen, appeals to me, especially when it isn't used as an excuse to create a host of unearthly resolutions and outcomes to cover up poorly executed plots. Not at all an issue for this fabulous author. The plots are tight, the twists keep coming and you will keep guessing until the last pages. Add to that a generous helping of scrumptious heat, and you have THE HEXED.
✨A splash of spicy romance in an evil twisted tale!✨
