    Kept me entertained from the very first page!

    Review by Robin: As we enter the South Carolina Coast we find ourselves ready to go to McDavid Island and become a ghost hunter. With ghost hunting all the rage now this was a fun and spirited story. No pun intended.

    Maddy Saunders, for a while had thought about leaving her job as a reporter for a magazine, but when the name was changed to Adventure Magazine she really thought she should have left long ago. Her boss gave her the assignment to go on a Ghost hunting adventure at McDavid Island.

    Maddy visits her friends antique shop and find an item that normally she would have purchased after her adventure but instead was drawn to purchase it before she left. She finds that it is connected to the McDavid family and the island.

    As she boards the ferry and arrives at the island she looks over the brochure trying to get a feel for the story she needs to write. As she enters the small town she finds it to be quite beautiful and peaceful. Little does she know that is all about to change. Entering a small diner she comes across others that appear to be there for the ghost hunting adventure.

    As Kari scopes out the others in the group in walks, this somewhat gorgeous guy who has the Elvis swagger down. He announces that he is Mal Sheirdan tour guide for the ghost hunting adventure. He evens comes with sidekick/partner Justin Stromberg. To make things even more interesting we discover he even has groupies.

    As they head out for a night of ghostly fun, you can't help but get caught up in the humor of the story. Mal and Justin usually have things staged but this tour takes them into a new realm or plain as for some unforeseen reason the piece of jewelry that Kari purchased unleashes real ghosts and some aren't so nice.

    As we find out Kari and Mal, find they are attracted to each other. Kari tries her best to fight it but the ghosts see things differently. They must work together to help the ghosts enter their realm.

    Ms. Frederick takes us on a journey into the world of Ghosts. I found this story very entertaining. It was funny, sexy and passionate. I definitely wanted so much more. It was a quick, engaging story that keeps you entertained from the very first page.

    Fantastic Read

    I'm not a big reader of ghost stories, it's true, but with all the hullaballoo about Ghost Hunters I had to pick this book up, and I'm so glad I did. I do most of my reading before bed, but found that this book wasn't conducive to peaceful sleep. It spooked me enough that I had to put it down and read it in the bright daylight.

    Maddy Saunders is a writer who's come to debunk a ghost hunting adventure. She doesn't believe in ghosts, so looks for every trick that Ghost Hunters Mal and Justin cook up. Ironically, Mal doesn't believe either ... so when real ghosts appear, things get a little crazy!

    Sparks fly between Maddy and Mal anytime they're near each other. Neither is particularly happy about the attraction nor are the ghost hunter groupies who have the hots for Mal (but then, who wouldn't? He oozes sex appeal ala Han Solo - cocky, handsome, and well aware of his good looks but still a decent guy).

    As things escalate (both with the ghosts and with Mal and Maddy's relationship) things get crazy, passionate and the pages flew by. How would they fix their predicament? How could they exile the ghosts who had suddenly taken over the island? How would they ever build a solid, lasting relationship with all their differences (not to mention the fact they live so far apart)?

    Ms. Fredrick does a stupendous job writing this fast-paces, spine-tingling story. I loved every moment of it from the newlywed ghost who wants a wedding night, to the ex-girlfriend to Justin (who I think needs his own story). Her writing is clear and concise and truly evocative and descriptive. Even better, if you're looking for some heat in your story, she delivers that too, in spades. That's not to say there isn't heart as well, there certainly is, but it crackles with sexual tension first.

    Ms. Fredrick, you've made me a fan of ghost stories. Write another one, and I'll be first in line to pick it up.
