1777: In the throes of the Revolutionary War, Landon Mansion is commandeered by British Lord "Butcher" Bedford.
He stabs Lucy Tarleton - who spurned his king and his love - leaving her to die in her father's arms.
NOW: After the day's final tour, docent Allison Leigh makes her rounds while locking up... and finds a colleague slumped over Bedford's desk, impaled on his own replica bayonet.
Resident ghosts may be the stock-in-trade of stately Philadelphia homes, but Allison - a noted historian - is indignant at the prospect of "ghost hunters" investigating this apparent murder.
Agent Tyler Montague knows his hauntings and his history. But while Allison is skeptical of the newcomer, a second mysterious murder occurs.
Has "Butcher" Bedford resurfaced? Or is there another malevolent force at work in Landon Mansion? Wary, yet deeply attracted, Allison has to trust in Tyler and work with him to discover just what... - via GoodReads
I was in the mood for a ghost story so I picked up The Uninvited by Heather Graham. Graham’s Krewe of Hunter series is my go to when I need a paranormal read. Generally they are pretty light reads and the ghost aspect of the book is always satisfying.
Part of the reason I love this series is that it is steeped in history. Naturally, some aspects are fictionalized but it is always something that could have happened. The Uninvited focuses on the Revolutionary War. I feel like the Revolutionary War gets the short straw a lot because it is the furthest in our past. Truly though it is amazing, nothing short of a miracle, that the Patriots won. I enjoyed this ghostly backstory.
I enjoyed Allison and Tyler. Allison is completely against the Krewe coming in. To put it bluntly she was a bit of a bitch about it. I can certainly see why she behaved the way she did but she made assumptions and that generally doesn’t go over well. Tyler was your stereotypical Texan: all manners and chivalry. Honestly they worked well together.
The Uninvited by Heather Graham was thoroughly enjoyable. I completely missed the who-dun-it and got a great ghost story in the process. I was lucky enough to acquire the next seven books in a trade from PaperBackSwap so I’ll be set for my next ghost story craving!
