For some, ghosts are no more than the wounds loved ones leave in their wake, haunting the living only with their absence. Others take a more literal view…
Kate Bennett, presenter of paranormal investigation cable TV show, ‘Where the Dead Walk’, isn’t sure what she believes, other than she seems cursed to lose all those closest to her.
After investigating a neglected cliff-top house, empty for a decade because its ‘haunted’, Kate is left convinced a spirit within holds the answers to a childhood she can’t remember and an unimaginable crime.
What she can’t know is that the house’s owner, Sebastian Dahl, is searching for something too, and he intends to get it, whatever the cost.
Let me first start off by saying that this was an amazing read and I highly recommend it. This is a haunted house/paranormal book that will keep you at the edge of your seat trying to figure out what will happen next. I have to say, even though Where the Dead Walk isn’t the usual genre of book that I read, it held me captivated and I honestly had an extremely hard time putting it down.
Kate Bennett is the host for a paranormal TV show, Where the Dead Walk. It is a show about haunted houses and trying to see if it is possible for there to be supernatural activity. The show itself, reminded me of the real show Ghost Hunters, where they try to find actual truth rather just rely on stories. Kate has had an extremely troubled life, and even believes at times that she is cursed. Because of this, she puts everything she has into her work and the success for the show.
Sebastian Dahl is an extremely successful businessman, who has brought himself from nothing to riches by being a building developer. He contacts the show because he believes a house that he built is haunted and would like for the team to check it out for themselves. It seems as though he is infatuated with Kate, and really does not want to deal with anyone else on her team or the show when it comes to his house.Dahl’s house is set on top of a hill with the ocean behind it in a completely remote area. It seems to give everyone the spooks, even in the daylight.
“Kate could imagine it being eerie as hell at night, not just due to its creepy aesthetics, but also from the knowledge it had been sealed up for so long, tomb-like, as though it had been left to slumber.”
What is it about the house that the team will find? Will we ever be able to find out why Sebastian is so infatuated with Kate?From page one, John Bowen sucked me intto his story, and I could not help turning the pages to try to unravel what the ending would be. The characters were well developed, and as the reader, you are able to see the story from multiple perspectives to give you more insight to what is going on. This being a first novel for Bowen, I cannot wait to see what other stories he will come up with.

Book One in The Strong Series
By: N.A. Alcorn
She can track down the world’s most dangerous drug lords, hack into any computer, and kill a man in fifteen different ways—but when she comes face-to-face with the only man who’s ever held her heart, it might be her most dangerous mission yet… Or is it?
Sloan Walker. Dr. Felicia Santora. Agent L-55.
Three very different personas, three very different names, but all have one thing in common. They’re all controlled, acted out, and lived by one woman.
Her past has been long forgotten. Ten years have gone by since someone remembered the girl she used to be. The young girl with the big-brown eyes and beautiful dreams of happiness, dreams of love. She now lives a clandestine life. A life filled with top-secret missions and covert assignments. Only a handful of people know the true nature of her job. Her safety is constantly being pushed towards the brink of life-threatening danger.
Then one day someone unexpectedly steps back into her life…
A man who once owned her mind, body, and soul.
A man who held her heart in the palm of his hand.
He remembers. He knows.
And this knowledge could threaten everything she’s worked so hard for. Nixon West is as intelligent as they come and his Navy SEAL training has made him one of the most dangerous weapons in the United States Military. The moment she reappeared into his life he promised himself that he wouldn’t let her go.
But the true question is…what extreme lengths will Nix go to for her?
She will soon face another mission.
And it will test everything.
Time never seems all that important until your life hangs in the balance.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock…
Have you ever met that someone who steals your breath with just a look? That someone you can’t stop thinking about, no matter how hard you try?
I met her in a dream. Never would I have expected her to step right into my reality, though.
But she did.
Although I can’t explain why, Payton Fowler makes me want things I never imagined I could have. She soothes the chaos in my head. But she doesn’t know who I really am, and she doesn’t see the darkness that lives inside of me.
She’s supposed to be off limits to me. But that’s not a problem because I’ve perfected the art of breaking the rules.
My name is Sebastian Trovato and this is the story of how I met the woman who unhinges me.

Ruin soon discovers that judging and executing wicked humans while linked to such a difficult and beautiful woman who can’t help but involve herself in every aspect of his business, is proving to be more difficult than judging the world.

Freshly back from deployment to Afghanistan as a special forces operative, Jakob needs to clear his head of the horrors of war. When his uncle is injured, Jakob steps in to fulfill the older man’s commitment to hunt down a mountain lion on the other side of the state.
