Book #27: 50 Book Challenge 2012

Heart of Evil - Heather Graham

I wanted to hate this book.  I really, really did.  I figured it would be another Silhouette eye-roller.  But it wasn't bad.  Reminded me of Sweet Home Alabama meets Poltergeist:  The Legacy (the movie and the TV show, respectively).  Civil War reenactments, a southern romance with a man named Jake, ghosts, and a group of paranormal investigators who tries to discover the secrets of an old plantation while tracking a serial killer.

And while I did roll my eyes a few times, the romance was not too gaudy and overwritten, and there was enough intigue in the plot to keep me going.
