Synopsis: Four centuries ago, in a small Scottish village, three baby girls escaped the wrath of a witch hunter. Today, one young woman will learn about her secret history, her heart's destiny, and the sisters she never knew she had...

With her blue-black hair and dark eyes, Raye Larsen has never fit in with the Scandinavian community of New Bergin, Wisconsin. Being adopted is part of the reason she feels like an outsider, but what really sets Raye apart is her ability to see dead people. Everywhere.

She's learned to keep her visions to herself...until she stumbles onto the ghost of a murder victim who needs Raye's help. Enter Bobby Doucet, a distractedly handsome homicide detective who has been tracking a killer all the way from New Orleans. Could this be the break in his case he's been looking for all along? Meanwhile, the deeper Raye gets involved with the case-and with Bobby-the closer she comes to unlocking the mystery of her own origins. What she discovers about herself could destroy everything she knows...and everyone she loves. Is finding the truth worth the risk?

(35)Review: I was totally enamored by the book from the very beginning. I could barely put it down even when fighting sleep.  You can almost say I fell under its spell.

The ghosts that follow Raye were all fascinating and their stories very interesting.  When Bobby Doucet comes to town from New Orleans he brings with him a whole slew of new ghosts, ones whose cases he couldn't solve and one that is very personal.  But Bobby doesn't believe in ghosts or people who see them so can Raye trust him enough to reveal her secret?

The Witch Hunters are creepy, the romance fun and the underlying story of Raye's mysterious adoption, who she really is and who her biological parents were keep you turning the pages.  Imagine having to fight who you truly are to fit in? And then once you learn that what you think you can do is only the tip of the ice berg of what you are really capable of.  Then you discover you have 2 sisters out there somewhere who are in danger and you are falling in love with a man who doesn't believe in what you can do.

This book is full of emotion, fun interactions and a town that I found creepier than the thought of witches and witch hunters roaming the earth.  I loved this book, such a fun read, I can't wait to read the next two.
