I always forget how much I like the books in this series until I start reading one again. The amount of research that Ms. Graham must do before each book must be astounding because these books are packed with great historical facts that she expertly weaves with her own brand of mystery and romance. This book is set in Salem and has so much information about the witch trials that I was right back in my high school history class, but thankfully this time I actually paying attention. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

In The Hexed, a murder takes place that is an almost exact replica of another murder that took place thirteen years ago. Craig Rockwell, a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, was the one who discovered the first body, a friend of his. He can hear voices of the deceased, and that’s what brings him to the Krewe of Hunters, and what got him to find his dead friend in the first place. Devin Lyle has returned to the Salem area just when a woman gets murdered nearby the cabin she inherited from her great-aunt. She’s an author who writes about the witch trials, and witches in general. When Devin is being led to a third body, and there’s some connection to the Salem witch trials and the murders, she can’t help but get involved. The two “detectives” unravel clues from the past. The friends of Craig’s past are questioned, and old friendships are tested. Add in ghosts, and I’m sold. At least, I thought I’d be. And the plot is pretty decent, I’ll give you that. I liked the tie-in between the witch trials, the murders and the ghost. I wasn’t too fond of the characters though – both Craig (or Rocky, as he calls himself) and Devin are paper-thin characters, with no real personality. Whatever personality they do have, never develops throughout the book. The writing wasn’t spectacular either, but it was good enough. All in all, I did enjoy the book, and particularly that it focused less on romance, and more on plot. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoy her Krewe books just wish she could keep her facts straight. Jane is back to being a brunette in this and at one point Rocky's stepdad is a retired firefighter then in another chapter retired law enforcement. I would have given 5 stars but the inconsistencies bother me

The Hexed kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time! I especially appreciated the thorough historical background on the Salem Witch Trials. I very much enjoyed how the ancestry of the Salem characters all linked back to the death of one young woman.

Enjoyable Paranormal Suspense I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange of a fair and honest review. If like me your thoughts turn to the paranormal at this time of the year and you’re looking for something new to read, you just might find what you need with Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series.  Set in Salem, Massachusetts, The Hexed, gives us the story of Devin Lyle, a writer specializing in children’s novels and Craig “Rocky” Rockwell, a new member of the FBI’s team of paranormal investigators.  Both colorful and likeable characters they have one thing in common; they can see and speak with the dead.  Ms. Graham does a good job introducing the characters in this story and also introducing the “Krewe” itself; while this is the first book in the series I’ve read, I was able to jump right into the story and enjoy it on its own.  Using the location of Salem and its history with the witch trials, Ms. Graham sets up a murder mystery with a serial killer who is selecting specific targets who all happen to be members of the local Wicca group.  The secondary characters are also well developed and I particularly liked Devin’s “Aunt Mina”, who died before the start of the book, helped to raise Devin as a child and left her home to Devin.  A home she now haunts.  I also enjoyed getting to know Craig’s high school friends and getting a look at his past – it’s not every day a young man passes up a promising football career to become a federal cop. The romance between Devin and “Rocky” is pretty low key but at the same time it’s nice; it adds an extra element to the story without being overly graphic.  The mystery of the killer’s identity is well handled and there are plenty of twists and turns in the plot.  The pace is also good and kept me turning the pages to discover what would happen next.  Though I thought I knew who the killer was, Ms. Graham does a good job and the final reveal wasn’t what I expected. Overall I enjoyed reading The Hexed and look forward to going back to the beginning of this series to discover how the “Krewe” got its start.  I know I’m looking forward to seeing where Ms. Graham takes us next in this series.

I enjoyed this book immensely. I'm a huge fan of Heather Graham's work especially her Krewe of hunter novels. As always Heather Grahams books grab you right from the beginning. This book had a twist at the end I didnt expect. Don't miss out on her latest work of art.

The Hexed by Heather Graham: A place of History, secrets..and witchcraft. Devin Lyle had just moved into her great-aunt Mina old cabin a woman was murdered. Craig Rockwell is a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI's team of paranormal investigators. He had never got over finding a friend dead in the woods. Another body has been find in the same woods, not far from Devins home. Devin had been led to a third body-by a ghost. Her discovery draws them both deeper into the case and closer together. Enjoyed the book very much. I thought it was very good.
