    1.5 starsOh boy, where to begin.... I've enjoyed Heather Graham's books in the past as the fun brain candy they can be, sadly this wasn't one of them. I can't say it's a terrible book, but it's far from good. Everything is just so lifeless, the characters, the mystery plot, the romance, everything was lame and weak. Which brings me to the dialogue which is clunky and often awkward. At one time, Nikki, the main character, had just come from her best friend's funeral and is now at the after-service gathering, where she proceeds to remark to another friend that she and her boyfriend are good for each other. What? How? Who? Who does that? How could you even think of anything else at a time where you're crushed at your friend's death? Totally strange and was one of many instances that took me out of the book. The romance, oh the romance. We get these two supposedly perfect people who both have the personality of a wet rag on a good day, aren't very bright, more so on Nikki's end, don't know each other, never seem to have any conversations, and definitely have no (none! nein! zilch! nada!) chemistry together. Oy vey. Looks really aren't everything. Okay, so the ghosts are a bit more interesting but that's not enough to save the book. Come to think of it, they were actually more alive than the living characters. Ha! Too bad the book wasn't told from their view. I had issues with the constant PC (politically correct) references throughout, mainly when someone would use the horrific, scarred-for-life-if-uttered I-word. *whispers* Indian. Sarcasm Alert! OMG, did someone just die? I'm so sorry, I meant Native American! Talk about annoying, there were at least three instances of that, one especially stupid. Believe it or not, but there are actually those who prefer to be called (American) Indian rather than Native American.I don't know if Ms. Graham was going through something or if this was a rush job or what, but this was one boring book filled with boring people who lead boring lives where boring situations may or may not happen, all of which leads up to an absolutely dumb ending to the book's lame plot. It's so dumb I don't even want to think about it anymore. The only thing saving this from one star is that I didn't hate the book, it just didn't inspire me to care one way or the other about anything or anybody in the story. Thumbs down.Originally Reviewed: October 4, 2012Received: Digital copy borrowed from my library

    3.5 StarI really like this author's Paranormal books they are always full interesting details, and history that interweave with the mystery. The plot is full of twists and turns, and no matter how much I think I have figured out who the baddie(s) is/are I always end up being wrong!My only complaint is that the romances always feel so forced. I never feel an overwhelming passion between the H/h. They often feel "wooden" together. I think it's because the mystery story is the focus, and the romance takes a back seat. I think these books would be 4-5 star reads for me if a tiny bit more time was spent developing the romance aspect.In any case, I really enjoyed this one!

    Decided to leave it unfinished. She used the word "demanded" too much and it was too white for a book set in New Orleans. I think I would have liked Nikki more if she wasn't all "I'm a pristine teetotaler in this boozer town. Hey Brent, did you start seeing ghosts after having too much peyote?" Ugh.

    I enjoyed this paranormal romantic suspense book by Heather Graham. I especially liked the two main characters, Brent Blackhawk and Nikki DuMonde. There were enough characters in the book, that the murderer was not instantly obvious. Nikki DuMonde is crushed when her friend and fellow employee is found dead. She is confused by the fact that she is certain she awoke during the night to see her friend standing by her bed at what she now knows is the exact time of death. Soon, it becomes obvious to Nikki that she is now seeing ghosts. Brent Blackhawk, a paranormal investigator who is delving into the death of an undercover FBI agent, realizes what Nikki is going through and tries to help her cope. Although the police believe her friend died of a drug overdose, Brent agrees with Nikki's assertion that foul play was involved, and he suspects a connection with the death of the FBI agent. Brent and Nikki soon develop strong feelings for one another and begin a relationship. Brent must protect Nikki from danger while they investigate to find out who was behind the murders.Ghostwalk was an entertaining, fast paced book. The mystery was enhanced by the setting of New Orleans, with its legends and cemeteries. I enjoyed the way in which the characters of Nikki and Brent related to one another. There was a large cast of interesting secondary characters that also added to the novel. If you are a fan of paranormal romantic suspense, give this book a try.

    Once again I have to say I wish I had found Graham a few years ago when her books first came out. I am enjoying these ghost stories. Nikki's newest employee has been killed and her ghost comes to Nikki for help but she freaks (of course). Brent comes into the picture who has seen ghost all of his life to help Nikki and to solve the mystery. I made it all the way through this book without a clue of the "who and why" and I love that. The one thing I would complain about? Nikki's BFF Julian.. His character is just so uncaring and a type A personality that he was distracting to me and I wanted him to be the bad guy so he would go away. That being said I love a book I don't figure out and with a couple I care about. I also enjoyed Huey the ghost and the trivia information of New Orleans make me want to visit and take a ghost tour.

    We made a quick trip to New Orleans so I decided to read this book before we left. The author's description of the city and the charcaters who live there are exactly what you can expect to find, and was spot on. I enjoyed being at the same places where the charcaters roamed, namely the famous cemetaries like LaFayette, as well as following the lives and footsteps of a ghost tour guide. The main plot was an interesting murder mystery (actual double murder) and had some twists. The love interest between the two protagonists who both could see ghosts, was easily predictable, but it made a charming love story. If you like murder stories with a side romance, no one does it like Heather Graham. This was a fun and quick murder/lovestory book.

    SMH.....I have always enjoyed Heather Graham books but this one just left me feeling sooooo disappointed. It began with a ridiculous amount of characters introduced right off the bat, none of which were ever fully developed.....ever....Ms. Graham would throw in what seemed like afterthoughts about a characters background to make it fit into the story plot at that particular moment. The ending was horrific....this book was based on characters being able to see and talk to the dead but at the end....and completely out of the blue.....a significant character is found murdered and yet his ghost never appeared throughout the entire book. It was like one of those "oh lets just wrap it up" moments where she really didn't know what to do, the story had gone so far off course it was not redeemable, so she just threw in the towel and ended it with some stupid crap that just irritated me and made me want to throw the book.....nope, take that back......BURN the stupid book so no one else has to suffer through it. Yes, unfortunately, it was that bad....and I REALLY hate to say that about one of Ms. Graham's books but I have to be honest in my opinion. It was by far not her best work....but it will not keep me from reading more of her work in the future because I do know she is a very talented author and this was just a "bump in the road" for her (again, in my opinion).

    I was sadly disappointed in this book. The plot didnt grip me the way Graham's usually do. I was mildly curious to see what happened but that was about it. I felt that everything about this book from the plot to the romances was underdeveloped. The sex scenes were uninspired and while i didnt dislike the leads i didnt really connect to them either. the plot was a good idea but i felt it dragged on way too long then wrapped up far too fast. almost 400 pages and only the last 5 or so explained the mystery behind the whole thing. And just out of nowhere the leads were getting married....they never once discussed how they felt each other. So yeah this is going in my give away pile...would not recommend it. A dud from a pretty great author

    At first, I was confused with all the different characters. It was hard to keep them all straight. I thought the story slowed down a little with all the tours and explanations. I got hooked trying to figure out who the bad guy was. The ending was okay--Just a little "Scooby Doo-ish"--when they said...oh this is the bad one right here who really isn't who he says he was. I loved the hero, I thought Brent was a great hero. I'm sure he was a hunk. I just hated that the scene that brought both of them together was a roach!I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a friend. I'm a writer and I am learning about Paranormal Romance. I've learned alot from reading this. What I'd do and not do. What can be rather trite or what can be original.

    Two and a half stars. A light read; not much depth to the characters and the plot not particularly gripping but still kept me reading to find out who done it. I must admit, Initially I suspected this person but dismissed him because he was a nothing character who popped in and out the story without having much affect the lives of the main characters. I thought it was too easy - oh well. The romance was okay, although I'm not a big fan of two people becoming soul mates within the matter of days or weeks. I like to see a relationship develop over the course of the story, whether it's a human romance or supernatural.I won't be in a hurry to read any more Heather Graham books.

    This is Harrison Investigations #2. Nikki DuMonde runs a ghost walking tour of New Orleans. One of her employees and friend is found dead. But Andy came to her in the middle of the night asking for help. Then Nikki realizes that Andy was already dead. With the help of Brent Blackhawk, she learns that she can see ghosts. Nikki and Brent get caught in a drug smuggling operation. Are they the people responsible for the deaths?I liked this story. I love books that have New Orleans as a setting, add in the spooky storyline and I am a happy girl.

    I seriously feel like I wasted my time. Okay, ghosts you think scary, well this was not. Second, the relationship that is somehow developed in this book was so unbelievable that I want to choke on it. And the villian in the end was just so well, lame. I love to give authors a one chance to make me a avid reader and this one just did not do it for me. The only saving grace for me in this book was the interesting tidbits about New Orleans.

    Standard paranormal romance. Likable protagonists. Immediate emotional connection that never is explained. Too many characters that it was a bit confusing. The changes in the POV don't help. Nice writing style and good setting. The mystery itself wasn't terribly interesting. What the novel needed was more tension. For some reason, I didn't feel it at all.

    1. This was another book club pick, it was a light fun read.2. What I enjoyed most was it took place in New Orleans, now I really want to visit that area. 3. It was kind of silly at times, and had some pretty weak lines.

    I don't like ghosts....period!!!! If I read about them, I dream about them so that keeps me far away. BUT...I've read Heather Graham before so trusted her. And was glad I did. I had no dreams and the book turned out to be very captivating. I enjoyed it...but I still don't like ghosts!!!!

    i started reading this book when i went to bed at 3 a.m. then picked up again at 8 a.m. i just couldn't put it down. I don't know what keeps drawing me to Books by Heather Graham . Every book i pick up written by Heather just seems to get better and better. It was one my dreams to make a trip to new Orleans and be able to see the old plantations and history. This book walks me history and my favorite subject talking and walking with the spirits. Heather Graham writings take you right into the mystery and makes you feel like you are actually a part of the story.

    Not what I would normally read. Thought I would pick up a novel-type book rather than my typical educational, or historical preference. Found the timeline, font, em, margins, paper, formatting, etc. to be a learning opportunity. As usual, if a story doesn't grab me - much like a movie - and immerse me into its entirety, I will piece apart and analyze the components.Not a bad story or book - it's simply a book I wouldn't normally read. It didn't teach me anything, although it did give me good reference points and ideas for future writings.

    This is the second book I've read in Graham's Harrison Investigation series. The New Orleans setting gives this paranormal mystery an extra dose of history and intrigue. Graham definitely keeps the reader engaged and guessing until the end.

    Want a read that will give you goosebumps well Ghost Walk ( Harrison Investigations book #2 ) by: Heather Graham will give you that and much more. If you don't believe in Paranormal Ghost or anything that hose bump in the night you might want to go to New Orleans and take a Ghost Walk.
