Review: Raintree: Haunted

Raintree: Haunted
by Linda Winstead Jones

It’s more than a last name; more than a notation on a family tree. It’s a mark of destiny. Each family member has a special gift, an otherworld talent.

Gideon Raintree, a homicide detective, can harness electricity and talk to ghosts. He will need to wield gifts he’s kept hidden to solve his newest cast-a relentless serial killer unleashed by the dark Ansara wizards. But first he must deal with his reaction Hope Malory, his alluring new partner. He’d never planned on love in the midst of battle. With evil lurking at every turn, Gideon and Hope are in arace against time to save their love, their family and ….their newly conceived child.

Raintree: Haunted is a really great and unusual detective romance story. Ghosts and supernatural powers provide the paranormal ambiance. It is the second installment of the trilogy from Silhouette Nocturne. Raintree: Haunted could stand alone but it was a wonderful continuation to Raintree: Inferno.

Gideon Raintree, the hero, is a homicide detective. He is gifted--he can talk to the ghosts of the victims. This ability adds a dimension to Gideon that few hero’s have. That of deep compassion that is never questioned by the reader.

Hope Malory is a wonderful heroine and balance to Gideon. Hope will draw the reader in with her humor.

If the tension and passion in the relationship between Gideon and Hope doesn’t keep you flipping the pages, then the plot is sure to. The plot is filled with suspense. Not only do Gideon and Holly need to find a serial killer but they also need to deal with the Ansara wizards. For those that read the first book, you know the Ansara wizards are NOT nice.

I enjoyed this book as much as the first. The story quickly caught my attention and with characters that I liked and cared for it was an enjoyable book.
