My Thoughts and Summary:
*I offered to read this book for an honest review.


Livi has moved into the villa where she killed the djinn owner. Living here three months and healed from her leg wound, she's starting to make her way around the huge home. But tracking the ghost has brought more of her home to light than she expected.

I'm not one for scary anymore. This book had a small creepy feel to the book for me from time to time but it was a fun haunted house story with a bit of adventure, which you always get from Livi and West. The secret passages and fires, you just didn't know what she would find or come across next. I didn't know when that ghost was going to pop up. lol. But I love Livi's balance and need of an adrenaline rush. Livi finally breaks down and calls West for help. He is the one who gave her the house, and supposedly checked it over with his employers. But he knows about this sort of thing too.

Livi and West together is awesome. I love their humor and quick clips. But they also work together amazingly well. There is a co-existence between them when on the job. They have a like minded thinking when it comes to work. (Well, it seems as well with other things too, but they won't let themselves face that yet.) This easiness between the two have me wanting them together more often, and in more ways than working.

The banter and tension between Livi and West is perfect. And the way they work together! It's like they are a couple and don't know it. They fit each other. I love them!

I was sucked into the story and loved the interactions among the characters. Can't wait to get into more books with Livi and crew.
