Nicki Styx owns the vintage store, Handbags and Gladrags. She has been dating Joe for six months. Thanks to Joe being in the ER the night she went in, he was able to bring her back to life.
Joe is a doctor who sees more things in ER than people would believe with the shootings, stabbings or what nots. He knows his girlfriend, Nicki, speaks to dead people but he has, more or less, finally accepted the idea.
Nicki is enjoying time with Joe when some dead chick by the name of Crystal pops in, claiming Joe was responsible for her death. Nicki believes Crystal should go into the light but as a client for the devil, she is not ready for the light. Sammy Divine is the new owner of Divinyls, a music store. He is also the devil in disguise and wants one thing, and that is Nicki, to come to the dark side. Nicki refuses, preferring to stay where she belongs with her perfect and sweet Joe. Sammy’s ways can be very persuasive, as she is about to find out. Can Nicki win this battle or will Sammy get his wish to have Nicki in his corner?
You Are The One That I Haunt is a robust story with lively characters that know how to start a party. There was never a dull moment. There were times I fell for Sammy myself. He was really cunning in a way, and I found myself almost rooting for him. Then there were times I wanted to jump in and kick him to the bricks so he would leave Nicki alone. This devil has a colorful persona about him. Nicki has attitude. I adored how she swoons over Joe. Terri Garey weaves a non-stop action read that had this reader rapidly turning the pages. I hated to say good-bye. They all were believable and like a close-knit family.
