An Angel for Christmas

I haven’t read a book by Heather Graham in ages, and based on this book, I won’t be reading another one soon either. I found this a very different type of Christmas story – not so much the celebration of the birth of Christ, but an allegory about the fight between good and evil. Maybe it is he ...

Home in Time for Christmas

A writing professor once told me that dialogue isn’t conversation; it’s conversation’s greatest hits. I wish Heather Graham had taken this advice to heart, as her excessive dialogue and blocky writing style bogged down a book that had some potential. Melody Tarleton is driv ...

Blood Red

I guess you could say I was a vampire romance virgin because Blood Red was my first. I will also admit that I have enjoyed many of Heather Graham/Shannon Drake’s historicals and I basically liked the story told in this novel. However, I couldn’t give it a higher score simply because of questions ...

The Presence

Have you heard the one about the modern day couple haunted by their doomed love in an earlier life? Well, Heather Graham thinks you're ready to hear it again - mixed in with a some serial killer stuff, of course, just to make sure all those "romantic suspense" bases are covered. Frankly, there's ...

Dead on the Dance Floor

Dead on the Dance Floor is a romantic suspense novel set among the world of ballroom dancing. The setting is really the only thing that stands out about the book. Otherwise, it features tepid suspense, an uninvolving mystery and a weak romance. Mostly it's one thing a suspense tale should never be: ...

Haunted

Haunted is a flawed and repetitous contemporary ghost story with an old-time gothic feel. Reading it is like entering a time warp; I wondered whether it was really set in the present-day or in the old South because of inconsistent characters, dialogue, and attitudes, and because certain plot threads ...

Picture Me Dead

I'd almost forgotten how much fun it is to read a good romantic suspense book. J.D. Robb's In Death books are among my favorites, but I haven't read much other romantic suspense lately. Picture Me Dead made me realize what I've been missing. The story moved along at a fast pace, and while perhaps th ...

Hurricane Bay

Private investigator Dane Whitelaw appears to be minding his own business when Kelsey Cunningham marches into to the local watering hole demanding the whereabouts of their childhood friend, Sheila Warren. Dane brushes off Kelsey's concern with the excuse that Sheila's probably run off with some new ...

A Season of Miracles

Heather Graham manages to weave breathtaking suspense, paranormal happenings, and Christmas magic into a unique and enchanting love story. A Season Of Miracles kept me up late to see what happened next, and how it all turned out. And isn't that what a good book is supposed to do? Jillian Llewelly ...

Night of the Blackbird

It wasn't hard to picture Kelly's Pub in Boston and the family that surrounds it, which is portrayed in the latest by Graham. Perhaps I've been watching too many old episodes of Ryan's Hope on SoapNet, but the place and people fell into place pretty easily. What didn't gel as well were the plot and ...
