Overview

Seeing dead people is bad enough. Loving him could make her one of them.
When the mother of all panic attacks prompts Erin Carter's boss to pass her over for promotion, her mind doesn't just crack. It explodes like an egg in a microwave, shattering her career along with the company car she crashes into the office building.
The death grip she's kept on her sanity slipping, she takes a friend's advice and flees to Spain. There she finds comfort in the healing arms of surgeon Santiago Botello-until a fifteenth-century ghost warns her that being with Santiago is dangerous, possibly even lethal.
Santiago has his hands full protecting his sister from a dark curse and his family from a very modern-day psychotic killer. The last thing he needs added to his plate is a neurotic American. Yet something about Erin tugs at his heart so hard he wants to wrap her in his arms and never let go. No matter the risk.
Erin's attraction to Santiago makes her the killer's next target. Survival means she must face her greatest fear, solve an ancient murder mystery-and hang on tight to the one man she's fallen crazy in love with.
Warning: This book contains a woman willing to lose her mind for love, a hot Spaniard with hands a girl could die for, deadly family curses, a ghost with memory disorder, and a really mad killer.

“…Kimberly Troutte serves up romance with a heavy dose of danger in Catch Me in Castile. Santiago is the kind of hero that makes most women wish they could pay a visit to the doctor….Erin’s an unusual heroine, in that for most of the book she isn’t quite sure she has a full grip on her sanity (and with good reason). …Ms. Troutte made me feel like I was being swept away to Spain, and I must admit, she also made me wish I had a Santiago waiting for me at journey’s end.”

After losing her job and her tenuous grip on sanity, Erin Carter flees to Spain for a much needed break. There she meets the dashing doctor Santiago Botello, who makes her forget her troubles … until a ghost warns her that falling for him could be dangerous.  I really enjoyed the author's characterization of Erin Carter, who suffers from anxiety -- I can relate -- and must struggle to solve an ancient mystery while wondering if she's losing her mind. Set amidst the sensual and exotic locale of Spain, which I visited while reading this novel, I was able to completely immerse myself in this story and feel like I was part of the action. The author juxtaposes two time lines (modern day with the 15th century) with ease, and the paranormal element kept me on the edge of my seat. The chemistry between Erin and Santiago was immediate and believable, and the mystery/suspense elements kept me guessing right until the end.  I highly recommend this book for lovers of tension-filled romantic paranormal suspense.

Suspense, Ghostly Drama & Love CATCH ME IN CASTILE was a pleasure to read as it had a lot of elements I really enjoy in a book:  suspense, romance, exotic locale (Spain) and with just enough paranormal to make it seem as if it really could have happened the food, the scents and the surroundings. I felt like I was in Spain, enjoying the tastes, smells, sounds and landscape of the area. I really liked the main characters and their chemistry was palpable as soon as they met. Their internal conflicts were well established, good sexual tension between the couple and I was rooting for them through the whole book. The author intermingled mystery, suspense and ghost sightings with a romance that will have you sighing, laughing and at the same time keep you intrigued to figure out the outcome. Well written story

The writer has a talent for pulling you into the book. This is a great, haunting read! Just when you think you have it figured out, you are pulled into another twist.

Sometimes getting away from it all can be murder... Erin Carter just wanted to get away from her nightmare of a life. After a personal crisis at work costs her a promotion, all she wants to do is lick her wounds and reexamine her life. A friend invites her to a picturesque refuge in Spain, which proves to be anything but a safe haven. Her best friend is hiding something, a beautiful-but-tragic 15th-century ghost won't leave her alone, and her budding romance with a handsome surgeon - with secrets of his own - makes her wonder if she's bitten off more than she can chew... This is a darkdarkDARK psychological thriller with twists and turns to keep you reading. It's not a comfortable read, but makes you wonder and shiver to the end. You can't assume anything with this book - and the ending was a surprise I didn't see coming. Not my usual fare, but I really enjoyed it. I really was cheering for Erin's HEA. I highly recommend this book - but read it with a light on!
