Aida Palmer performs a spirit medium show onstage at Chinatown's illustrious Gris-Gris speakeasy. However, her ability to summon (and expel) the dead is more than just an act.Winter Magnusson is a notorious bootlegger who's more comfortable with guns than ghosts. Unfortunately for him, he's the recent target of a malevolent hex that renders him a magnet for hauntings. After Aida's supernatural assistance is enlisted to banish the ghosts, her spirit-chilled aura heats up as the charming bootlegger casts a different sort of spell on her.On the hunt for the curseworker responsible for the hex, Aida and Winter become drunk on passion. And the closer they become, the more they realize they have ghosts of their own to exorcise...My thoughts:
I love Jenn Bennett's other series, Arcadia Bell and with other bloggers I follow said that they loved this one too (I didn't doubt it at all), I knew I had to dive in... and soon. Finally I got to this one and I loved every bit of it. I also have to say that Amy Landon's narration was so very good. Often I have to listen a while before I get used to it, but there was no problems with that here. While Winter's voice was still different in my head, her version of it didn't distract me from mine. :D Ah the voices in our heads. At least they tale a good story. ;)
The plot is full of twists in the mystery revolving around Winter and I didn't guess who was behind it even though I had my suspicions when we first met that character (no worries, I won't reveal who). The romance was sweet, sometimes frustrating and very hot. Yes, I did... like most PNR/UF books want to kick the male lead in the arse from time to time, but he did redeem himself in the end. I loved Aida from the beginning and I totally loved her independence. She was no shrinking flower but still felt vulnerable enough that I found myself worrying about her character.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars. I really enjoy this author's works and she has become one of my favorites. I cannot wait to get into the other 2 books in this series and I think I may have to do it on audio as well.
