Detective Matthew Bennett doesn't believe in ghosts. So when the spirit of a murdered child leads him to her body, he's shaken to the core--and taken off the case. Unable to explain his vision, or to let go of the investigation, Matthew turns to renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick. Though he has doubts about Kiernan's claims to communicate with the dead, Matt is nevertheless drawn to the handsome psychic, who awakens feelings he thought were long-buried.

Haunted by the lingering spirit of the little girl, Kiernan is compelled to aid in the search for her killer. The chance to get closer to the enigmatic Matt is an unexpected bonus. Although Kiernan's been betrayed by people who turned out to be more interested in his fame than in himself, with Matt he's willing to risk his heart. As the two men grow closer, Kiernan helps Matt rediscover that life offers no guarantees--but love offers a reason to believe...


Kiernan and Matthew Bennett make a great team. I could totally see a whole series centered around the two of them. Bennett is a cop, he doesn't believe in ghosts, well at least he didn't think so until one led him to her body and continues to come to him at night. Kiernan makes his living by talking to ghosts. A famous TV psychic Kiernan has been talking to ghosts since he was a child.

This is a great murder mystery/romance. While Bennett and Kiernan struggle to find the correct killer and help Abby, the ghost haunting Bennett, they also find a strong bond holding them together. The mystery is twisted and interesting and Kiernan is a fun character with his quirky t-shirt collection, fabulous Irish accent and great wit. Bennett is just trying to hold on to his career and solve a case he has been told to stay away from and could he also be falling in love?

The mystery is more important than the romance, even though the romance is great. I love that there was more to this book than just the romance. Well written and fun I seriously hope that this author comes back to these characters.
