The paranormal investigators at Gulf Coast Paranormal thought they knew what they were doing. Midas, Sierra, Sara, Josh, and Peter had over 20 combined years of experience investigating supernatural activity on the Gulf Coast. But when they meet Cassidy, a young artist with a strange gift, they realize there's more to learn. And time is running out for Cassidy.

When Gulf Coast Paranormal begins investigating the ghosts of Kali Oka Road, they find an entity far scarier than a few ghosts. Add in the deserted Oak Grove Plantation, and you have a recipe for a night of terror.


Cassidy is just discovering her strange ability to paint events that happened in the past.  She gets a compulsion to paint and can't settle until she has put the feelings on canvas and when she touches the wet paint is transported into one of the characters of her dreams. She stumbles across a flyer advertising a paranormal group that is looking for people to share their experiences. 

This is the start of Cassidy working with the Gulf Coast Paranormal agency that I missed when I accidently read the 3rd book first.  I like how we see Cassidy grow from an apprehensive person regarding her gift to embracing it.

It seems that each book starts off with a murder that has ties to the past. Through investigation and the help of Cassidy's painting the team tries to figure out how to let the ghosts rest.  Fun series, not the most literary or well written but a good fun read.  Sometimes you need mind candy and this delivers the spook and the fun.
