Private Investigator Aidan Flynn, along with his two brothers, has just inherited the Flynn Plantation. Neither he nor his brothers even knew of its existence until they were contacted by a lawyer upon the death of a long lost relative Amelia Flynn. Now they are the proud owners of a mostly derelict old mansion, desperately in need of repair, and its resident ghosts.
Kendall Montgomery is a fake, albeit a very educated one. Her store, Tea and Tarot, is a quaint little gift shop, tea room, and fortune telling business. She attributes all of her fortune telling skills to her degree in psychology, and the ability to really listen to people when they talk. She believes in intuition, not magic.
The brothers Flynn stand in awe at the sight before them. The plantation house they have inherited looks like a haunted house, and with reports of ghostly sightings going back decades, it may just be. Each brother has his own impression, but only Aidan seems reluctant to even go near the house. Something about it just feels wrong, but with his enthusiastic brothers egging him on, he concedes to refurbishing the plantation. Kendall meets the new owners with a heavy heart. She loved Amelia and would hate to see the place sold off, and destroyed. Despite her first impression of Aidan, and his ice cold eyes, Kendall feels relieved that they want to restore the home. Aidan and Kendall butt heads right from the start, but it is apparent to both that there is a serious attraction between them. The strange occurrences around the plantation, and the disappearances of several young women, lead Aidan and Kendall on the hunt for a killer. But will they get the answers they seek, or become the next victims?
Spooky, eerie, and a little sexy are just the right ingredients for a perfectly scary story. The descriptive storyline surrounding the Flynn Plantation sounds exactly like it came from the deep South with its rich and diverse history. The characters as well are intuitively done. They are written with intelligent dialogue, snappy humor, and well placed romance that only enhances the plot, but does not overwhelm it. This may be listed as a paranormal, but it certainly rivals any great mystery novel on the market. I will certainly be adding the next two books in the Flynn brothers trilogy to my must read list.
