Overview

THE TRUTH IS SCARIER THAN FICTION

Keri Wolf has joined the crew of The Seekers, a show that searches for paranormal phenomena, as they explore a supposedly haunted old inn on the road between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. The place is famous for its warm welcome—and infamous for being the site of an ax murder rampage in the 1920s. They’ve barely begun when a very real dead body is discovered in the basement. As a nonfiction author, Keri is supposed to be the rational one, but she can’t explain a terrifying apparition that seems to be both a threat and a warning.

Former detective Joe Dunhill knows what she’s going through—the strange gift of being able to see and talk to the dead is a struggle he shares. A new member of the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, he’s on the team investigating the disturbing death. The town is steeped in old-fashioned superstition, and the deeper Joe and Keri plunge into the dark secrets of the inn, the closer they get to a devastating truth. Will a bloody history be repeated? Or can the spirits of the past reach out to stop a killer?

The backstory of a television crew that is investigating a haunted house for a tv series is a unique setting for a murder mystery. It comes with a set of characters ready built to keep the story moving quickly. Add in a new murder that is discovered by the tv crew and you've got the perfect reason to bring in an investigative team that specializes in paranormal. Heather Graham has blended these two casts of characters perfectly. Their differences color the first few chapters until they find they have much more in common than anyone of them might have thought. Combining their efforts keeps the investigation on track. This was a great read with the central characters' questions answered at the end. Is there a ghost or not?

This is book #28 in Krewe Hunters series. It is the first book I have read in the series. I expected this book to be a little more spooky than it was but overall not a bad read. I would say this is a paranormal mystery book. It is a light and easy read for the summer. I received an ARC of the book.

I have been a fan of the author's work for decades, since I read the Florida historical romance novels in the early 1980s, under her alias, Shannon Drake. Her novels are all well researched and written with fascinating details, intriguing plots and captivating characters. So it is with the Krewe of Hunters. While this book can be read as a stand alone, since the author provides in the dialogue a short history of the Krew of Hunters, it is better to read a series from the beginning. The Truth Seekers is a show that searches for paranormal phenomena. Keri Wolf is a writer, who researches and investigates old crimes and is invited by Carl Bentwood, a young actor who was introduced in the previous book, to joined the crew to investigate the Miller Inn and Tavern of York County, Pennsylvania on the road between Philadelphia and Harrisburg, which he had recently purchased. While the Inn had been open in 1770 and had seen many a historical figure in its rooms, in 1926 it was the scene of a mass murder. But the first night, it is not ghosts, but a dead FBI agent that turns up in the basement of the Inn. Since Carl had recently worked with Dallas Wicker and Joe Dunhill,in the McClane House investigation, he requests their help. It was in the last book, that Joe discovered he can see and talk to ghosts, so he can connect with Keri who discovers that she isn't hallucinating, but also has that ability. Joe and Keri connect in other ways too. The story moves at a fast pace, the course is twisted, with clues added along with some red herrings. This action packed page turner is hard to put down.

This just didn’t work well for me and perhaps I should have started earlier in the series rather than at #28. I wanted more paranormal, greater mystery, steeper thrills, tighter storytelling, weirder details and far fewer characters. To me, the characters were indistinguishable. I could not remember which generic name went with which bland personality. So, this story is not terrible but it is average. I know the author has a devoted fan base and that made me really curious. I was hoping to join it. I’m sorry to miss out on the experience. I received my copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

Heather Graham & Krewe of Hunters never disappoints. As always the story takes you on a great ride, sprinkled with mystery, bits of history and a little Love. :))

The seekers started off a little slow for me, but once it figured out where it wanted to go it was an enjoyable mystery with ghost and light romance. As always Heather Graham throws some history in there, enough to snag the interest of the curious. There is a murder or two in the present and ghosts from the past. It was nice for a few visits or mentions of some of the original Krewe and I look forward the the next ghostly sighting. Thank you to Heather Graham, publisher and NetGalley for the arc. All thoughts and opinions are my own and we're unsolicited.

The Seekers – Heather Graham The FBI’s elite Krewe of Hunters returns in yet another paranormal adventure! Joe Dunhill, former Savannah Detective, is the newest member of the Krewe of Hunters. After having a bit of unexpected paranormal help in solving his last case, and seeking to put his new talent to use, he is tagging along with agent Dallas Wicker as they investigate their latest case. Keri Wolf is a writer who researches historical crimes and then documents her findings. She has been invited to witness and document the exploration into an old building in York, Philadelphia where a mass murderer reportedly lived and killed his prey. The historical story includes the death of a young woman at the hands of the innkeeper, and her father, so deranged from grief, then killed him and massacred the other inn inhabitants, with restless ghosts still haunting the Inn. Along with the new owner, Carl Brentwood, and the “Truth Seekers’, a crew of paranormal investigators, they also plan to try to validate the haunting. Shortly after Keri’s arrival, a woman is found dead in the basement of the old inn, her body splayed out on an altar of sorts, covered in blood. She also sees another figure, a woman in white, staring at the body with tears running down her face… before she disappears. The York County Police investigate, led by the abrasive Detective Catrina Billings. When the body is identified as an FBI agent, the Krewe of Hunters is called in to oversee the investigation. As Keri, Carl & the Krewe join forces and share information, they seek answers as to why an FBI agent from NY has become the latest victim of violent crime in PA and begin to suspect a link in their cases somehow. Meanwhile a pair of old ghosts recognize their intent to set the past right, and do their best to steer Keri & Joe in the right direction… Filled with rich history of the area, likeable characters, mystery, paranormal suspense and a touch of romance, this book will hit the spot for paranormal suspense fans everywhere! Great read!! I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.

I think reading previous books from the series would have provided background into the unique group of FBI agents that can communicate with the dead. The story was a bit bizarre and very disjointed. There were so many characters that I found the story a bit difficult to follow at times. There was an HEA and some good interaction between Joe and Keri at times. I received a free ARC eBook from Net Galley and the publisher for my honest review.

The Seekers a paranormal group are excited to look for spirits in an old tavern where multiple murders occurred. When an FBI Agent is found dead in the cellar of the tavern, the big guns are called in. The Krewe Hunters are a group of Agents who have the special ability of being able to see and at times communicate with the dead. This has helped them solve crimes. Joe and Dallas are at the tavern with the Seekers and their true crime historian, Kari. Little do these people know the danger they are about to encounter. The murderers are near but how near will be a life or death situation. A novel of mystery, romance, and murder.

I don't normally read paranormal stories but this one is almost more mystery than paranormal and its very well-written. I am new to this series but really like the Krew and all the characters although I was a bit surprised that they had some Keystone Cop moments when they should have known better. I would say this is more thrilling than scary but it had its moments of fright done nicely and the balance between solving a murder and dealing with a possible ghost was handled perfectly. Now I need to go back and see how this group started out. Thank you NetGalley for the advanced readers copy for review.

“Miller Tavern has always had a reputation for being haunted. Very bad things happened here, homicidal crazy people...Serial killers before that was a thing.”—from The Seekers Keri is a true crime writer hired to lend gravitas to a ghost hunter show called Truth Seekers. Carl, a young Hollywood A-lister, buys Miller Inn and Tavern. The tavern was the site of a brutal mass murder in 1926. Carl hopes the Truth Seekers will find evidence of ghosts to drive business to his inn. Instead, they find a brutally murdered FBI agent on a replica of the “torture table” in the inn’s basement. The paranormal elements of the tale are used well to propel the plot forward. The romance between two of the characters along with their shared shock at their ability to see ghosts seems genuine. The history of Satanism and hexes was interesting too. My only complaint was my own fault. This is the 28th Krewe of Hunters novel but my first. I spent the first fifth of the book trying to keep the characters straight. The author appears to know this might become an issue by including a Cast of Characters at the beginning. However, many people were cast as walk-ons whose role didn’t warrant my memorizing their name and function. If I had read at least some of the previous entries in the series, this may not have been a problem. If you like an atmospheric ghost story with some history, a small romance, and a slug of mystery, you will enjoy The Seekers. 4 stars! Thanks to Harlequin, Mira, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

The Seekers brings the suspense in the latest Krewe of Hunters novel. With her time and time again proven formula, Heather Graham mixes a creepy mystery with a touch of paranormal and a taste of romance to deliver a page turner of a novel. The latest recruit for the Krewe, Joe joins forces with Dallas to investigate when the body of a fellow FBI agent shows up in a ritualistic looking murder. The agent is found on an altar at in the bottom of a historic inn known for a past mass murder by researcher Keri. Some ghostly appearances later and a trail of creepy clues put Joe and Keri in the path of some psychotic killers. Fast paced and action packed, the story drew me in with the mystery and the budding romance was just icing on the cake for a good read. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

It's hard to believe this series is on number 28, and I'm just now finding it. I used to read Heather Graham a lot and got away from the genre for a while, so when I saw this one, I thought I'd check it out. Thankfully, this one seems to stand on its own, at least I didn't feel like I was missing anything as the characters interacted. The story is a little bit crime thriller, a little bit paranormal mystery, and even a little bit romance. It does have a rather slow start, and there are several characters to get to know. We do get a kind of cast of characters summary at the beginning, and that helps but can be a pain to go back and forth to if there are questions. I really enjoyed getting the backstory about the Inn, and the author does a wonderful job of inserting it into the story organically as things progress. I also liked the ghost element, but would've liked to have seen more of that. In the end, I liked the story. I didn't love it, but for me, it fell firmly into the fair to midland range.

4.5 out of 5 stars Thank you to Netgalley and Harlequin-Mira publishing for allowing me to read an advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. When I requested this I didn't know this was part of a series but I am glad I didn't know because I am not sure I would have requested it. I don't think you need to have read anything else in the series to be able to follow this. Keri Wolfe is a Non-Fiction writer has recently joined a paranormal investigation show. The show goes to investigate a haunted inn known for axe murders. As they begin to set up they discover the body of an FBI agent. Are the killings starting all over again? Keri and Joe are likable characters that you will definitely root for. If you like romance,mysteries and ghost stories this one will be for you!

The Seekers is a show that searches for paranormal phenomena and Keri Wolf, a non-fiction writer, has joined the crew to investigate an old inn on the road between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. The strange gift of being able to see and talk to the dead is a struggle that Keri and former detective Joe Dunhill shares and as a new member of the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, he’s sent in to investigate when Keri and the crew discover a very real body in the basement. Another fantastic ghostly suspense from this bestselling author, one that sends delightful shivers down the spine and has readers biting their nails in anticipation. All the characters are strong and very vivid which makes it easy for readers to become completely caught up in the story and as for Joe and Keri, well their chemistry is strong and sizzles with lots of intensity. Their relationship is sweet and moves right along, despite all the happenings during the investigation and a makes quite a cheery contrast to the suspense of the plot. The plot takes place at the perfect pace to build up the suspense as clues to the past are hard to come by and the spirits of the past are there to help. Heather Graham has gift for providing the right details and a wonderful setting for her stories which make it easy for readers to picture the story as it happens. Solving the crimes of the past to solve the crimes of the present makes the plot a bit complex and very intriguing and with unexpected surprises filling this adrenaline pumping story, there is no way for the readers to guess who the culprit is.

When I was offered this book by the publisher through NetGalley, I wasn't sure it was a good idea to jump into the 28th book in the series but I took a chance anyway and found I enjoyed this police procedural with paranormal undertones very much. This actually might have been a good book to begin with because a new member is joining the special FBI task force known as the Krewe of Hunters, one Joe Dunhill, late of the Savannah Police Department, who is now going to train with the FBI. Almost all the action in this mystery happens at the Miller Inn and Tavern in York County, PA which is infamous for several grisly murders that were committed there back in 1926. A crew from the hit tv show 'The Truth Seekers' is supposedly there to see whether rumors of ghosts haunting the historic inn might be true. Also there is a true crime writer named Keri Wolf who specializes in digging into historic murder cases to see if she can uncover new facts--in this case, she wants to prove that the man who was killed by a lynch mob for the heinous murders was in fact innocent. At the inn is a museum with a fascinating collection of old photos and newspaper articles she can't wait to explore. Before much work can be done however, a mutilated corpse is found in the basement of the inn, the body of FBI agent Julie Castro who was working on the kidnapping case of a wealthy NY teenager. Why was she brought there? Agent Dallas Wicker of the Krewe of Hunters is brought in to investigate, along with Joe as his consultant, much to the consternation of the local police detective, Catrina Billings. Is it possible that the modern-day murder is somehow connected to the past? If so, could one or more of the inn's ghosts guide them to the truth? The tension in the plot builds nicely as they piece the puzzle together with some good old-fashioned detective work. But can they complete the whole picture before someone else is killed? Some hair-raising situations, well-drawn characters, interesting historical facts and even a little romance complete this fascinating mystery. Many thanks to the publisher for providing me with an arc via NetGalley for an honest review. I've found a new series to enjoy reading!

The Seekers (Krewe of Hunters #28) by Heather Graham ...Only five stars...are you kidding me?... Thanks to the publisher and #NetGalley for allowing me to preview this book. I don't know where to start..I can't say enough about how I love the KREWE OF HUNTERS books. This one kept me on my toes and I hated to even sleep til I finished it. Joe Dunhill (former detective and almost KREWE member) Keri Wolf (author of books solving old historical crimes) Dallas Wicker (FBI agent with the Krewe..showing Joe the ropes) Carl Brentwood ( actor who bought the Miller Inn and Tavern) Brad Holden( creator and host of the Truth Seekers..studying the tavern) I was on pins and needles as I always am with Heather's Krewe books. I enjoyed the interaction and the laughs..There was plenty of suspense and scary stuff..with a love story mixed in...all getting us to a HEA. I won't tell you anymore just that you need to read this. Can't wait for THE STALKING...coming 9/24/19. Reasons I enjoyed this book: Witty Romantic Informative Happily Ever After Great world building Scary Action-packed Haunting Wonderful characters Easy-to-read Entertaining Unpredictable Page-turner

Although I have read many books by this author, I have not read this particular series. I should have started from the beginning, as I always recommend to readers, but the opportunity arose from Netgalley. That being said, this one reads easily as a stand alone. The Seekers is a show that searches for paranormal phenomena. Keri Wolf has recently joined the crew as she has the gift of being able to see and talk to the dead. While researching and exploring a supposedly haunted inn well known for being the site of an ax murder in the early 1900s, the crew discover a very recent dead body in the basement. Former Detective Joe Dunhill shares the same gift as Keri. He is a new member of the FBI's Krewe of Hunters, a member of the team investigating this newest murder victim. Is history repeating itself? Who is the apparition they both can see? For my first stroll through Heather Graham's world of paranormal, I found myself quite riveted to the story ... and the characters. I'm definitely going to take my own suggestion and go back and start at the beginning. Many thanks to the author / Harlequin-Mira / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of this mystery / suspense. Read and reviewed voluntarily, opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

I honestly don't know how to characterize this latest in a long (long) running series but here goes my attempt- there are ghosts, there's a murder, and there's a romance. It's paranormal and it's mystery and of course it's a love story. Gosh that's a lot. Kerri and Joe are part of a team which plans to investigate whether there are ghosts at an inn in a creepy town in Pennsylvania. What they find, however, is the body of a murdered FBI agent. Oh, and a ghost. No spoilers but this does trip along merrily. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. I'm new to this author but her fans will no doubt eat this up.

Ms Graham can surely write a book that will keep you hooked till the end and make you turn pages as fast as you can. I read this book in two settings and I loved it. It's darker than other I read in this series, some parts are perfect for a horror book and I think I could sleep with the lights on. I loved every minute of it, the fleshed out cast of characters, the dark and bleak setting, the engrossing plot. I look forward to reading the next installment in this series. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
