It's the Christmas season, but all sorts of bad things are happening. It seems a serial killer is on the loose and it's up to paranormal detective Helene Collias to solve the crime. Unfortunately, the victim's brother is "the one who got away" and her reemerging feelings for him may be jeopardizing her judgment. Lots of creepy elements in this novel, showing the seamier side of humanity and the spirit world alike. Recommended.

Detective Helene Collias works for the Holly PD and is also a psychic witch. It’s Christmas time, and unfortunately, murder doesn’t take a break. Helene is called out the Grant house where Chelsea Grant has been viciously murdered. Her brother Sean and sister Bianca are the only Grants left now. Helene’s gifts would normally tell her more information, but for some reason they’re not working correctly in this case. It doesn’t help that Helene has an old connection to Sean which may be rekindled. Is the killer just some ordinary psycho or is there something darker at work? MURDER UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR is a short novel, but the length doesn’t keep it from packing a powerful punch. I enjoyed the characters very much and felt they were nicely developed. I really loved the hunt for the killer, especially because it took Helene’s investigative training and not the paranormal elements to wrap up the case. The plot was tight and complex, but not hard to follow. MURDER UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR is a great mystery novel with some romance and paranormal aspects.

Read from January 17 to 18, 2014 Book Info  Kindle Edition, 160 pages Published November 19th 2013 by Raven Queen Publications ASIN B00GSC8MMM edition language English other editions None found Source:Personal Kindle Copy Book Buy Links  AMAZON  B&N  BOOK SYNOPSIS 'Tis the season ... for death. Murder reminds Detective Helene Collias of Holly PD that crime doesn't respect holidays. And the last victim she ever expected to find in her case files is the sister of her old flame, Sean Grant. Ordinarily, Helene's psychic gifts give her an edge but this time, that gift has short-circuited. Could her lingering attraction to Sean be blurring her abilities, or is something more sinister at work? My Thoughts The month of December is supposed to be a time of family gatherings to celebrate Christmas and ordinarily for Sean Grant and his sisters that would be the case but this year the murder of his sister Chelsea has he and his youngest sibling Bianca caught up in a police investigation and in the sights of a psychotic killer whose plans for the Grant family are not finished! Helene Collias is put in charge of investigating Chelsea Grant’s death, when she finds out her high school crush Sean Grant is the young woman’s brother old memories come to life and when the pair come face to face much to her chagrin the flames kindled in their youth are once again fanned for Helene. It takes a bit of time but Sean connects the dots also and his thoughts also turn to matters besides his sister’s demise causing him both guilt as well as hope for the future as he never had the chance to explain to Helene why he never sought her out after their interrupted moment of passion during their Senior cruise. If you are looking for a bit of light reading set amidst the Christmas holidays this certainly is not going to fit that need, however if you are looking for a well thought out murder mystery with a side of steamy romance to ease some of the tension faced by the main characters than you have found exactly what you were looking for. The book may be less than 200 pages but believe me you will find that the way it is constructed there is more than enough to keep you busy while you are enjoying how the story rolls out to it’s satisfactory conclusion. The mixture of paranormal elements lends just enough of an extra twist to keep things from becoming too routine. [Personal Kindle copy given an honest review]
