The Flynn brothers have inherited more than a New Orleans plantation. They’ve inherited a ghostly presence… and a long-kept secret.
Aidan Flynn, a private investigator and eldest of the Flynn brothers, scoffs at the haunted-house rumors—especially since Kendall Montgomery, a tarot card reader who has been living in the mansion, is the one to tell him the tale of a woman in white. But when he finds a human bone on the grounds and another by the river, Aidan delves into the dark history of the Flynn plantation.
Forced together to uncover the truth, Aidan and Kendall realize that a serial killer whose victims seem to vanish into thin air has long been at work…and that their own fates are about to be sealed forever unless they believe in the unbelievable.
This is the first of three books in the Flynn Brothers Trilogy and takes place in New Orleans and involves ghosts, murders old and new and an old haunted plantation. I loved it. The locale is one of my favorites and you can’t beat a combination of ghosts,plantations, murders, a hot hunky private eye and a beautiful woman so it held my interest all the way to the end. I will start the second in the series in a day or so and can’t wait. It takes place in Salem, Massachusetts and maybe involves witches. I’ll let you know.

The Bone Island series has been a pleasure to read, although this, the third and finally book in the trilogy, was my favorite. The author explores the world of Key West in great detail, bringing it to life and sending the reader on a mini vacation without leaving the comfort of their cozy armchair. This series has ghostly happenings,sweet sexy romance and the warmth of Key West. If any of these things appeal to you, pick up this series and don’t forget the suntan lotion!
