Over the weekend, I read a few books. Down time. My mind relaxes when I'm reading, rather than writing. One of the books I read was Ghost Walk, by Heather Graham.
No one believes her except Brent Blackhawk, a paranormal investigator desperately trying to forget his tragic past. Half Irish, half Lakota--and able to communicate with the dead--Brent is used to living in two worlds. But when he realizes the ghost of a slain government agent is also trying to reach out to Nikki, he knows that she, too, must listen to the dead...if she wants to keep living.
I think I expected a little more from this book than I was given. It was advertised as a paranormal romance. Yes, there's some romance. Yes, there's some paranormal. However, I certainly wouldn't call it a paranormal romance. The main characters were a little different. Nikki did nothing but argue. Brent did nothing but let her argue with him. I just couldn't endear myself to either of them.
The story was good, with the mystery and such. However, it would have been a whole sight better if Nikki didn't continuously argue with her friends, herself, the police, and her new boyfriend.
Also, I found I lost the story in the head hopping. For the first few chapters, I had to keep reading the blurb to remind myself who the main character was because the other characters outshone her by far. The romance started about halfway through the book, and failed to cheer me.
All in all, I give this book 3/5 stars, simply for the story line.
Big smiles, it could be worse!!!
