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 uninvited guest—dead or alive—has taken over the house.
Or their lives could become history!
The Uninvited by Heather Graham offers both a thrilling suspense and a historical journey. I love the way she combines history and fiction. Creating a unique and entertaining read, she ends up with a masterpiece like this book. The characters are fun, engaging, and intelligent. Some are just average normal people who get caught up in deadly situations. A historian returns from taking a group of tourists out and finds her musician friend dead. What looks to be suicide, is actually a murder. But the evidence is like finding a needle in a haystack. That and with all the past deaths from the historic building a group of special FBI agents arrive to the scene. The Krewe of Hunters are involved in anything paranormal and there is plenty of that happening in this book! I loved it. Humor, romance, and mystery are the famous trademarks of this talented writer. I found them all here in this story. Searching for a deadly suspense edge-of-your-seat kind of read, there’s a lot of that here, too. The Uninvited is action-packed and well-written.
