    The is the best Krewe of Hunters so far. I really enjoyed it. While previous books in the series were entertaining enough for me to continue reading the series, this one doesn't have some of the annoying things most of the other books have: occasional annoying heroine or hero, unbelievable attraction or silly villains. After reading the eighth book in the series I came to a conclusion that I prefer the stories centered around events from American history. This story confirmed it.

After reading the eighth book in the series I came to a conclusion that I prefer the stories centered around events from American history. This story confirmed it. The Night is Watching has two great main characters, neither trying to be too smart, too tough or too anything. Even the initial Sloan's hostility lasted only a few pages and it wasn't something out of the blue. You actually get the explanation what he is afraid of. And they are both gifted and they dealt with that right away. Neither Sloan nor Jane waited to admit the fact they have seen ghosts. First chance they had, it was in the open. They were pushed into admitting, but still. As usual, these books focus more on suspense/crime part of the story rather than the romance. And that was really well done. Lily, Arizona is a small town with rich history. Its tourist part of town has a very old theatre, the Gilded Lily, where a famous and beautiful Sage McCormick had performed. She went missing a hundred and fifty years ago along with some of the other people and a stagecoach full of gold. This time the villains are not so transparent nor silly.

Each book in the series deals with a new case for the special paranormal unit of the FBI and focuses on one of member of their unit and their romance. In this tale the past and present intertwine as dead bodies from the past and present begin to appear. I quickly became swept up in the mystery. Three word review: ghost-town, suspense, legends. The Night is Watching takes us to the Old West and a town called Lily in Arizona. The town’s claim to glory is the Gilded Lily a former theater and bawdy house. The main street of town has been preserved in its former glory and rumor has it ghosts haunt the buildings. The old jail is now a hotel where you can stay in famous cells and the Gilded Lily has rooms for you to stay in, a fine restaurant and puts on nightly theatrical shows. Sloan Trent is a former Houston cop, who left when his uncle became ill and accepted a job as the local Sheriff. He stayed on since the quiet life suits him just fine. When an old skull wearing a wig shows up in the theater he calls his old friend and former partner Logan. Logan is now working for the FBI and Sloan asks him for the name of a respectable forensic anthropologist. Logan sends a team member, Agent Jane Everett to reconstruct the skull. Ghosts, murder and mayhem ensue as Jane and Sloan must piece together the mysteries of the past to solve a present day case involving murder. Sloan is an interesting character and we learn his ancestors go back to the town’s origins. While he misses the action of the big city, he is comfortable in his ancestral home with his horses and the spirit of his uncle. He is level headed, smexy and respected. Jane Everett an artist and trained FBI agent who loves her job. She is cautious, clever and confident. The chemistry between the two of them was interesting. While they both found each other attractive, things started off a little icy, but as the ice melted the tale began to burn. Graham provided a delicious cast of characters with the townsfolk of Lily. It was fun trying to decide whodunit. The ghosts and their stories were fascinating and was one of my favorite parts of the tale. I loved the setting; it was like an episode on one of those haunted places TV shows. Lily, Arizona lives for its tourist and the colorful past Graham gave it was interesting. I thought she did a clever job of weaving past legends and unsolved mysteries into the present murders. While I had an idea of whodunit, I must admit I was a little shocked when the players were revealed. The romance was sweet, but sometimes I wanted to shoot Sloan for forgetting Jane is a trained professional and not a damsel in distress. When they connected it felt genuine. As always her tale was paced well and I quickly became caught up, I loved piecing things together and watching it all unfold.

    Review featured on www.books-n-kisses.com 3.5 Stars While an interesting story this book just did not have the flare that Graham’s books usually have. I didn’t feel that Sloan and Jane had the connection that most of the characters have in her stories. And in all honestly all the characters seemed so snippy to each other that it was distracting.

There were many moments of mean-spiritedness in this story. I am not sure why because that is not common in Graham’s books but every character seemed so pissed off at everyone else. Now that being said as always Graham puts so much real life history into her books that even one of her worst books (which this most certainly is not) is a great read. The story of the town of Lily, Arizona is one that you don’t want to stop reading. Something is just missing from this story. I am glad I read this book even if it was not one of my favorites. Graham’s books are always an interesting and educational read if not for any reason other than the background that she must painstakingly research.

    The story is a cute mystery with dead bodies appearing from the past and present. It has creepy ghosts and a dark basement. Mannequins move in the dark. Love blooms between the two main characters. It follows the formula for most of Heather Graham's books. I just wish that her clues led to a specific bad guy. As in all her books, the clues could lead to any number of people, as if the author decided at the last possible moment who was to be her murderer.

    Jane and Sloan’s story is a fantastic paranormal spin on the classic who done it. It was a good blend of history, legend and present plots. Greed and romance met in a saloon and ghost town. Jane has been an interesting member of the Texas Krewe so I was glad to see how elaborate and fun her story was. Sloan May be one of my favorite partners so far and I am excited to see more of him/them in the future. This was a fast and fun read.

Turns out, A modern day ghost story in a town that hints of the Old West, The Night is Watching by Heather Graham may just have you looking over your shoulder next time you visit an old hotel…or an old theater…or anywhere else where the claim to fame are its ghosts haunting the town! Forensic artist, FBI special paranormal investigations agent, Jane Everett mosies into the Old West town of Lily, Arizona to reconstruct the face of an old skull found among the props and costumes of an old theater. Turns out, the skull seems to have belonged to an actress of long ago, who mysteriously disappeared, leaving behind her family. Now her ghost is often seen wandering the town. The town sheriff, Sloan Trent is the actress’s great-great grandson, on a mission to put her soul to rest and solve the mysteries of several murders around town, both past and present. As they try desperately to follow the clues, Jane and Sloan find much more than danger around every corner. There’s no butler, so he didn’t do the crimes, the clues are buried deep in the history surrounding the town, literally. Is the promise of riches the motivator behind the deaths? Are people really who they seem to be? Will Sage, the long dead actress turned ghost finally lead the way to the truth and justice? Heather Graham has taken an FBI case, tossed in the dust from an old west tale, blended a little who-dun-it, some modern technology and good old fashioned brilliant detective work to create a fun, fast, slightly paranormal romance! Her strongly divined characters are sometimes clichéd, sometimes quirky, but always cleverly drawn! I swear I saw tumbleweeds blowing by as the sounds of an old time saloon floated on the air! Very entertaining! An ARC edition was provided by NetGalley and Harlequin in exchange for my honest review. Publication date: May 28, 2013.

    Review: The Night is Watching I've read several sets of Heather Graham's "Krewe of Hunters" novels and enjoyed them.

They always have a nice combination of suspense, romance, and mystery, usually involving something "ghostly." The criminal's however, are usually human. This book focuses on Jane Everett, an FBI agent who can often see the dead and who is also a forensic artist. She is called out to a small, supposedly haunted town in Arizona to investigate a very old skull that was found in a theater. The Sheriff there is the "oh so good looking" Sloan Trent, and while the two main characters do get off on the wrong foot, they soon work as a team and then of course, take it to the next level. Jane soon begins seeing the ghosts of two people who were murdered years ago, one of them being the great great grandmother of Sloan. Apparently, there was a plan to steal a stagecoach filled with gold and those who found out about this plan were murdered before they could talk. In the present, new attacks and a murder or two also occur and Jane and Sloan need to put together the past to uncover what is happening in the present. I read this book in one day, as I usually do with Heather Graham's stories. It wasn't too long and I thought it was fun to try to guess who was really the true criminal and why they committed the crimes. Heather's novels aren't really deep, they are just good all around fun for those people like me who just enjoy a good paranormal mystery. She has two more books coming out in this set, one in August and the third in September. If you want to start at the beginning to see how this FBI branch that investigates the paranormal was created, start with Phantom Evil. Her books run in sets of three with each set focusing on different characters in the Krewe of Hunters.

The Night is Watching is the ninth book in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham and published in May of 2013. This time around the plot revolves around Jane Everett - the last member of the Texas Krewe and a talented artist - and Sloan Trent - Sherriff at Lily, Arizona. Krewe are a secret FBI unit with each member of the unit honing a particular psychic talent of their own making them the paranormal investigating team. This unit was created to deal with murders having supernatural undertones and paranormal activities. Headed by paranormal investigator Adam Harrison, the elite unit of paranormal investigators is called on to solve cases linked to historical mystery involving legendary crime and serial killings, war events and hauntings. The stories in the book series are located mostly in Virginia and New Orleans, with some well-known legends used as themes. The Krewe are divided in three distinct groups. The first group is led by Jackson Crow called as the original Krewe of Hunters, the second group is led by Texas Ranger Logan Raintree called as the Texas Krewe and the third group is a unit of its own. Jane Everett is sent to ghost town Lily, Arizona when her team is called in as a request from their team leader Logan Raintree's long-time friend Sloan Trent, Sherriff of Lily. A human skull that is more than hundred years old at least was found in the basement of the local theater Gilded Lily. Sloan seeks out Logan and his team's help as he feels their special abilities are also needed. But Gilded Lily comes with it's share of hauntings, specially by Sage McCormick who had at one time been a patron of Gilded City some hundred or so years ago and had disappeared one night after her performance. No one knew where she went and her mysterious disappearance had caused to the many gossips about ghost sightings and the theater being haunted. Curiously enough the name Sage McCormick reminds me of a spice. Perhaps Heather has chosen the name well considering the amount of spice Sage had created in her lifetime. But What has happened to Sage? Had she been murdered? Or did she really runaway? Trying to connect the pieces in the present with the pieces of the past, Sloan and Jane come together with The Texas Krewe in investigating this unusual occurrences. In the process they find themselves falling in love as well as right in the path of the criminal. Sloan Trent also has his own abilities with respect to paranormal world. However his acceptance of having others share the same ability is far less than what I had imagined. Heather projected him as a more cynical in the beginning of the book quite contrast to the easy way Jane accepts. Although Jane and Sloan constantly batter and bicker, there is no mistake in the instant attraction between them and the electric charge their chemistry gives out. Surprisingly enough Heather doesn’t have the entire Texas Krewe investigating this crime but just a small set. And even that they don’t come until almost a little more than half of the plot is covered. As the series progressed I noticed that Heather has subtly increased repeating some of the plot pieces and with this book I felt it more repetitive. She still sticks to the same formula - a old historic unsolved mystery and new current crime that somehow get related with all the paranormal elements around it. It was a bit lengthier than I would have liked for the plot. However, another interesting thriller in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather that doesn’t bore you. Spoiler Alerts: 1) Grammatical / Historical / Location / Character Errors: a. On Pg. 46 fourth line, Heather mis-uses Logan instead of Sloan. b. On Pg. 70 first line, Heather mis-uses Logan instead of Sloan. c. On pg. 116, Heather mentions Old Jail and Old Town in the line starting with “back to his office, stopping at….” 2) The name of the lead character Sloan Trent reminded me of two characters that Nora Roberts had in her series The Calhoun Women - one was Trenton St. James who was paired with the youngest Calhoun, Catherine, in the first book Courting Catherine and the second one was Sloan O'Riley who was paired with Amanda Calhoun the third Calhoun sister in the second book A Man for Amanda. I had immensely enjoyed this series that depicted some really strong women with a family secret from past and mysterious happenings in the present just like Heather Graham Krewe of Hunter Series. This is another series that I have to yet post about although have read it numerous times. 3) Heather mentions about a 1914 serial that was being parodized in this plot as The Perils of Poor Little Paulina. The original one titled The Perils of Pauline was shown as weekly series in 20 installments in 1914. More about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Per.... a. The basic story reminded me of the cartoon series The Perils of Penelope Pitstop and surely enough the cartoon series that was aired between 1969-70 was based on this 1914 serial. 4) There is reference to a third Krewe team but it is not mentioned explicitly. I havent come across it's name yet so looking forward to see what that team is named as. And Sloan Trent is asked to join it. 5) After finally meeting Adam Harrison in the eighth book The Uninvited (My review of that book here: https://inspirethoughts.livejournal.c...), I am keen to start the books in which he had originally been part of. I have the Harrison Investigation Series by Heather Graham that definitely are prequels to this series in my list yet to read. Perhaps after I finish this series. 6) Again this book I have, came with two inserts about free books - you know where the books used to have a hard letter kind of page that you could tear it, fill in some information and mail it with free postage; You would get the free books as promised along with free gifts sometimes. Remember those card inserts? Well, I found them in this book. Why am I surprised because off-late such inserts are no longer seen. I remember seeing them in older books, more like pre-2005 era when internet, online shopping etc wasn’t that hep. But surprised to see it in a book published in 2012. Wonder if the author was trying to revive the good old paper-system of writing letters.

    Krewe stories with ghost appearing which is the norm in this series by Heather Graham. While most of this story includes only one Krewe member, it was well done with incorporating the small town local sheriff and county law support. The ghost town itself was painted well and I can imagine finding this one in the old west on the edge of the dessert easily. While not the main story, I would love to see some of the theatre that was portrayed here. It sounded like a lot of fun.

    Well that was quite a pleasant surprise! This was a slightly complicated one and what cracks me up (view spoiler)[is that there were so many people involved that I was basically right about all my guesses! (hide spoiler)] (and that IS a big spoiler, so) Maybe it's just me, but I felt like there was a hint of Agatha Christie in this one. I think it's the small town thing. But it was a super fun read. Recommend. Well that was quite a pleasant surprise!

    I honestly had no idea what I was getting into when I started reading this book. I didn't realize it's part of a series and that it had a paranormal element as well. I'm not sure if it was a nice surprise or not, but it was an interesting one. So, Lily is a pretty small town with no actual crime, aside from the occasional fender-bender and drunken brawl. So the town milks its history for crime stories, claiming ghosts hunted theatres and old jail cells turned prisons. When a hundred-year-old skul I honestly had no idea what I was getting into when I started reading this book. I didn't realize it's part of a series and that it had a paranormal element as well.

So the town milks its history for crime stories, claiming ghosts hunted theatres and old jail cells turned prisons. When a hundred-year-old skull suddenly appears in the basement of the theater, the mayor decides they need to get a facial construction expert in to find out who it belonged to, probably to add to the town's lurid history. Only once the expert comes, she realizes that the ghosts are very much real and that there was an elaborate crime that went bad in the past, leading to even more crimes today. The local sheriff doesn't believe he can trust anyone except the fed here to work on the skull and to him, everyone is a potential suspect. I don't read that many crime novels, not as a rule or anything, I just haven't had the chance. So I did enjoy this one as a change of pace, and I really want to get into more of these books. I liked that even though this was part of a series, it works well as a standalone novel. One thing that usually bothers me in books is pacing, either it's too slow or too face, or both. I feel like this one was pretty evenly paced and I liked that. I also liked that the author didn't just 'claim' the main female lead was strong and smart, but actually showed her as strong and smart. Something else that always annoys me. She worked fast, followed her instincts and got results. The premise was also pretty enjoyable. The idea of solving an old crime/mystery and being worried about things happening in the now in a similar way was fun to follow. Especially with ghosts involved. However, there were parts that still bothered me. A LOT. For well-trained people from law-enforcement, their inability to figure out the guilty ones easily bothered me. I'm sorry, but no matter what, these people were locals, there has to have been an obvious way to see their change in behavior, understand that something is going on. They seemed too dumb when it counted and it frustrated me. Also, how are they being taken down so God damn easily by random people in town? That just blew my mind. I mean sure, they were taken by surprise. But aren't these people trained to sense things, to be more careful? No one showed self-preservation or extra care knowing people are dying around and they should be more careful. That was annoying. The other thing was hints or clues the author added that just... were never even addressed. I'm like... what? (view spoiler)[There's a scene where Jane is suspicious so she walks around barefoot, doesn't find anything, goes to bed, wakes up the next day and in the shower realizes there's blood going into the drain and that her feet had been coated in it... what happened there? Nothing. That was never brought up again. I guess it was meant to just add more mystery to the theatre? Who knows? (hide spoiler)] But as a whole it was enjoyable. Makes me think I might want to read more mystery.

    Would I recommend? Yes! . Things I liked: This book is a page turner, I just couldn’t put it down. I loved the whole twist at the end of the book. I love how these books can be a one day read (when I have the chance). There is a reference of a third Krewe team but it is not names as of yet. I can’t wait to see what happens to it. As well as Sloan Trent was asked to join. Heather Graham books aren’t deep, they are fun for people that want a short book about paranormal mystery and romance. . Things Would I recommend? Yes! .

Things I didn’t like: I feel like as soon as the two other Krewe members showed up they discovered the backstory to Sage McCormick really quickly. Spoiler Alert for this little paragraph While reading I noticed a few grammatical, character errors and locations. -pg 46. Mis-uses Logan instead of Sloan -pg 70. Mis-uses Logan instead of Sloan -pg 116. Mentions Old Jail and Old Town in the lone starting with “back at his office” . Overall: I’ve decided that I’m reading these books in order, but each of them can be read as a stand-alone. I do recommend reading it in order because it helps introduce the world and helps when introducing the characters. While reading this book, I had no clue who the murder/s are. I was not expecting it to be who it was and who was involved with it all.

    In the beginning, Jane says “our unit - the second of three...” which means they’re setting up for the next Krewe to take over the series. this made me interested but also felt that I have lost connections with the original character...

About halfway through the novel (borrow from digital library 'Overdrive,') the author mistyped Jennie for Jane. it's easily mistaken given how close their names could be argued. I was also getting the characters of Valerie and Alice confused. They almost seemed like twins or I was not paying as close attention to the details. Overall, this was a pretty decent read. After reading eight novels of Graham, you start to notice a slight pattern BUT! She always seems to surprise you over the “who dun it” However, I didn’t quite understand why these certain character were involved, nor how they pulled it off. I didn't feel complete - everyone just ended up dead or in jail denying anything. 3 out of 5 stars

    The Night Is Watching by Heather Graham is another suspense thriller filled with mystery. In this one, I am sent to a theater where there is more than just fowl play happening. Murder...both from the past and present are connected and it's up to the Krewe Hunters to catch the killer before more innocent lives are gone. The theater house came alive on the pages. I felt like I was in it with all the characters. Both the small and big characters had a role in making this a fun journey.

I was in suspense as the dead are found, and ghosts interact with law enforcement officials. Someone is serial killer but who? The scene of the crime is a theater and so many possibilities and twists were easily created. Heather Graham still brought out the humor and romance despite the deadly suspense hanging onto the pages. I was thrilled. I received this copy from the publisher. This is my voluntary review.

    This was a bit better than a 3 star but not enough to merit 4. This author does a nice job of taking her characters and plots to different settings and describing them well. This one was set in a small town near Tucson, AZ. The artist Krewe member, Jane, finally gets a guy who will apparently show up again in a later book as a member or leader of a third Krewe. There were quite a few characters to keep up with in this novel which made them seem less alive than in books with more fully-developed This was a bit better than a 3 star but not enough to merit 4.

There were quite a few characters to keep up with in this novel which made them seem less alive than in books with more fully-developed characters. However, that said, the main ghost was nicely developed and was a sympathetic and even heroic character. If you enjoy these genres, you likely will like this series but this wasn't the best yet of the series.

Yet again the mystery and supernatural elements are fun, and yet again the love interest is a bizarre mix of chivalrous in meaningless ways, and rude upon being faced with a female FBI agent. At least this time the rudeness seemed more like an obligatory thing to be gotten over with rather than an integral/persistent part of the guy's personality. Here is a list of things I'm getting the impression the author really likes: 1. Horses 2. Cowboys 3. Historical reenactment 4. Historical revisionism 5.

"Krewes" starting with manly men with native american heritage. I've yet to see a female character with native american heritage in one of these books, so I'm assuming the author has a very specific type.

    Another great book by Heather Graham. She has such an ability to tell a great story and teach history at the same time. This story takes place in Lily, Arizona and encompasses a old tale of murder and stolen gold when the West was young. Jane Everett is called to Lily when an old skull was discovered in the basement of the local theater by the Sheriff Sloan Trent. It was Jane's job to recreate the face in order to get answers about what happened to this person. There is a lot of mystery and susp Another great book by Heather Graham.

There is a lot of mystery and suspense surrounding this small western town especially when dead bodies keep turning up. Of course, there are many twists and turns that keeps you on your toes. Great book.

    Thanks Netgalley for a great book to read and review Wow what a ghost story! Loved it. The small town of Lily was once a silver mining town during the years of the big gold rush. An unsolved missing person mystery is one of the big highlights of the old theater in Lily, Arizona called the Gilded Lily. A skull is found and FBI members of the team Krewe are sent in. Jane and Sloan have an instant chemistry which fuels the book, not to mention the rich history of the town, and the town folk.

    The Night is Watching is a thrill seeking, need to know page turner, with not just one mystery but, has mysteries in the mystery itself. Each character is strategically placed for the perfect role in the plots; from Agent Jane Everett, Logan and Kelsey (Krewe Members) to the local sheriff department with Sloan Trent and the local businesses like the theater, stables and the bed and breakfast old Jail. The way everything and everyone is placed leads up to an insane ending.

I never even thought the mysteries would unravel the way they did, and each page had a twist that lead to the unpredictable ending.

    I don't know why I keep reading these books! Maybe it's the stay at home order that has me desperate enough to keep on reading. This one starts with it's romantic BS right away. It's always the same, the man saves the woman. They don't like each other but after a few days not only do they have sex but fall in LOVE and change their whole life for that person. Either by moving to another state, getting married, going on a long trip, or even changing their jobs. So lame! The story itself was okay. I don't know why I keep reading these books!

Honestly these books are like Scooby Doo episodes with real ghost and sex. I am moving on to the next one only because I already have it for free. I feel I should get paid to read these TBH.

    4 Stars Another enjoyable Krewe of Hunters book. I found this one to be one of the creepiest so far. I loved that it took place in a wild west (think Tombstone) kind of location with an old theater as the main setting. I thought I knew who the bad guy was (and I was partly correct); but the story did keep me guessing. I liked Jane and Sloan, they were a great couple. I did enjoy that they brought Logan and Kelsey in from the previous books; but didn't bring in everyone because there was already a 4 Stars Another enjoyable Krewe of Hunters book.

    Though the ghosts in this story terrified most of the townspeople, our heroines and heroes found them quite helpful. A gold shipment disappeared a hundred years ago, and it looks like some people in town think they can find it and are willing to kill to do so. Luckily, the ghosts remember what happened 100 years ago, and also can warn of pending danger now. Since I believe in helpful or at least friendly ghosts since living in a haunted house, I enjoy this series immensely.

    A little slower at the outset than others, but still a great read. A lot of moving parts and characters to keep track of but what an ending. Great build up and exciting to see Jane's story. I also love how new Krewes come to fruition. Since there are upwards of almost 30 books in this series, it obviously is a big hit, mainly because she does introduce those new Krewes with exciting new characters who get their own stories. Keep them coming. A little slower at the outset than others, but still a great read. A lot of moving parts and characters to keep track of but what an ending.

    This is another of the novels in Heather Graham's Krewe hunters series. In this novel, the setting is in a town in Arizona, a small town that has survived from the Civil War era. Rumors of ghost sightings are common in this setting, one of them is the Gilded Lily, ghost of a woman who disappeared without a trace one evening. When new murders take place, the sheriff calls in the Krewe hunters to help solve the case. This is another of the novels in Heather Graham's Krewe hunters series.
