Thanks to the wonderful Rave Reviews Book Club I am discovering many new books and authors I might never have discovered before… and here is another one
My latest read was Haunted Hearts (#1: A Lana Malloy Paranormal Mystery) by Kim Cox
Book Blurb: Will Lana Malloy solve the twenty-year-old double murder of her great aunt and her great aunt’s fiancé by Memorial Day? If she can, they’ll spend eternity together; if she can’t, they’ll be stuck as Haunted Hearts for another year.
My thoughts: This is the first of Kim Cox’s books I have read and although it’s only short (described as a novella) it’s a lot of fun.
This light hearted read follows a new Private Investigator Lana Malloy on her first case – to find the killer of her great aunt and her fiancé . Unlike most murder investigations Lana has the added help of in the shape of the victim! Lana’s ability to talk to the dead is something she is very comfortable with and her great aunt is a fun and lively character – especially considering she had been dead for 20 years.
The actual “investigation” into the murders is minimal as the story is more focussed on the characters and Lana’s new blossoming romance.
Haunted Hearts is a good introduction to the Lana Malloy series and while it could be read as a one off I think getting to know more about these characters will certainly add to this world 🙂
