    1. So.That was me during mostof this book, the first 50 pages are completely about a set up for a Civil War reenactment which was my first problem, I am definitely NOT into the Civil War era but trucked through in realizing a lot of this set up would lend itself because this is a mystery murder book after all right? It WILL get better, the first book was decent enough! The book is just sooooo sloooow. I was very very close to DNFing it several times but what was holding me through is that I am trul [...]

    2. Oh, Heather Grahamwhat have they done to you? Did you sit in a meeting, after the success of the first book, in this series, and listen to some asshole in a suit tell you how to make your series more marketable? Did he say, more ghosts--ghosts are in right now? Did he say, more romance--romance is big? Did he say, let's dumb it down a bit--people are stupid? If he did say those things, you seem to have taken them to heart because this book is an insult to the one that preceded it. I gave that on [...]

    3. To be frank, I felt the ghosts in the story had more of a love connection than Jake and Angela did. Really Angela blows Jake off 5 years ago because she can't deal with what he told her about her dad. Now that she is having some dead people issues, she wants him back in her life. Then once he is there she keeps blowing hot and cold with him. Then after they have been in the muddy Mississippi looking for a weapon and Jake is trying to catch a shower. Then you knock on the door still covered in st [...]

    4. Ok, I have now read two books in this series in hopes that Heather can pull it out of the world of Lost Plots. But, no. Ashley is such a TSTL heroine that I kept kinda wishing the villain would just shoot her. At the beginning of the book she rushes into the old graveyard in her night gown to investigate what she thinks may be some teenage vandals. Yep, that stupid.Then there is Jake whose personality has completely changed since the first book. Now he's in charge? He and Jackson seem to have sw [...]

    5. Heart of Evil is the second book in the Krewe of Hunters series and it is quite different to the first one. Heart of Evil contains the same characters but this time it focuses on Jake. While, I think that you don’t have to read the first one in order to understand this one I would definitely recommend reading the first book, Phantom Evil before this one; especially if you want to know more about the characters backgrounds and things like that.Heart of Evil is so good. It is a murder mystery, w [...]

    6. If you like the Civil War, the history of New Orleans, ghosts, and romance, then read Heart of Evil by Heather Graham. I love history! I enjoyed the book because of the history. That is why I gave this book four stars. This is book two of the series. The books in the series do not have to be read in order. My biggest problem with this book is that there are too many characters. I understand that it is about a Civil War reenactment, but it would be better if the characters had names that were not [...]

    7. This book was not as creepy as the first, though it had enough elements that it should have been. Perhaps it was because the heroine was so forgiving of obnoxious and stupid behavior. Or because she was TSTL at times. Or because so many of the suspects were not particularly likeable. Or because we got to see inside the villain's head. And that last is something I'm glad we had even though I normally don't care for it. If there hadn't been a POV from the villain, then the solution wouldn't have w [...]

    8. I had a hard time with this book, and it really dragged on for me in spots. There was a very slow build-up thing going for most of the book, then it just seemed to rush to the ending! There was barely any romance between Jake and Ashley, and it really didn't feel like the team did much investigating! What saved the book for me was the historical aspect of it, as well as the ghostly interactions. The setting was very rich, and there were times when I actually felt as if I was wandering the planta [...]

    9. Compared to book one, I liked the story better in this book, but I liked the characters better in the first one. The characters here came across as rather flat.I also had an issue (one of those must suspend disbelief kinds of things) with the fact that Jake, who previously was pretty much just a musician that also apparently helped to find people (unless I’m mistaken on that aspect), now is a full fledged FBI agent that knows all about protocols, procedure and apparently the knowledge to give [...]

    10. This was definitely an interesting read. It's a cross between paranormal and actual crime scene investigation. It was almost like watching one of those episodes where people truly enter a place and try to use scientific data to interpret whether or not they encountered a presence. Usually in paranormal romances, it's the exact same information that you get in all the others, and right now there is a plethora of them to choose from. Different angles, different ideas, or just a different spin is a [...]

    11. Ghosts, haunted plantations, ghosts, Civil War reenactments, ghosts, murder, ghosts, romance, and did I mentionosts. Another fun read full of ghosts and murder as a reenactor is gruesomely murdered following an event at an allegedly haunted plantation home. The Krewe crew (sorry, couldn't resist) is called in to investigate the strange happenings, and naturally romance also follows. I'm finding this series more entertaining than some of the author's other series, so I'll undoubtedly read more as [...]

    12. This was fairly entertaining, but not nearly as good as the first book in this series. This one also took place in Louisiana, but on a Civil War-era plantation. The story also focused on a different member of the Krewe of Hunters--Jake Mallory. The romance between him and his old flame Ashley Donegal makes up a significant part of this book--much to my disappointment, as I found their whole romantic conflict very unbelievable. (view spoiler)[Ashley went from freezing him out to jumping into bed [...]

    13. The opening scene / prologue, where the two main characters have nightmares, was a real eye-opener and gave way to how the rest of the book would go. Jake and Ashley’s (main characters) introduction into the story couldn’t have been more perfect.As the first chapter progressed, it was rather humorous and made me giggle. Then things began to get spooky in a good way considering it‘s a paranormal mystery. I enjoyed reading the parts from the murderer’s point of view. It made the tale more [...]

    14. The Evil series continues with Heart of Evil. Heather Graham does a great job of continuing the characters from the first book to this book, while subtely shifting the focus from the main characters of the first book to the 'new' main characters of the second, yet not losing focus on any of the 'Krewe'.Jake is a likeable character that seems to be content with his life, but you soon find out he lost his soul mate years before when his 'abilities' scared her offw she needs his help. Returning to [...]

    15. Outside of New Orleans, Donegal Plantation is known for its unsurpassed dining, captivating atmosphere, haunting legends …and now a corpse swinging from the marble angel that marks the Donegal vault. The corpse is discovered in nearly the same position as that of Marshall Donegal, the patriarch killed in a skirmish just before the Civil War.Desperate for help traditional criminologists could never provide, plantation heiress Ashley Donegal turns to an elite team of paranormal investigators who [...]

    16. Another reviewer summed up this review really well:"Heart of Evil is the second book in the Krewe of Hunters series and it is quite different to the first one. Heart of Evil contains the same characters but this time it focuses on Jake. While, I think that you don’t have to read the first one in order to understand this one I would definitely recommend reading the first book, Phantom Evil before this one; especially if you want to know more about the characters backgrounds and things like that [...]

    17. A certain delicacy is needed when you set a murder mystery on a Southern plantation that also does civil war re-enactments. Especially when the murder is linked to civil war history. The first chunk of the book explains how slavery is a non issue' and in fact there is no racism any more (this is confirmed by a black character being totally cool with re-enacting the guy who owned his family & raped his great grand mother). Another character explains that her Slave owning ancestors didn't make [...]

    18. Ugh. Horrible. Don't even know why I finished it. Probably because I was listening to it while doing fun stuff. Would not recommend. Very boring. I really didn't care what happened half way through the book.

    19. Oh can't put this one down read over 2/3 of it yesterday until my eyeballs started crossing Great book now I need book 2 of the series

    20. This book was just OK for me. It was a good story and it flowed fine but it wasn't something that I would read again or necessarily recommend. If you are a Heather Graham fan you will like it.

    21. I tried. I really did. But the first chapter just didn't draw me in whatsoever. Not a good sign. Tossing.

    22. I've read the first and fourth in this series, while I had big problems with the way they treated characters the story, the mystery had been enough to keep me going. With this novel I made it 60% and I just can't do it anymore.Jake is is he even in this book? He is so blah he doesn't seem to register with me at all. He has no real personality or appeal as a lead.Ashley on the other hand. well I obviously know that she is in this book because she pisses me off so much. She refuses to believe that [...]

    23. This book talks a whole lot about the Civil War and the Southerners' view of it, and actually Graham explains the issue very well that doesn't excuse the wrongs of that age but doesn't demonize the Southerners either. Expect a lot of exposition to fill in some of the pages.The mystery in the story is compelling. A reenactor has been found dead and hanging by the tomb of Ashley Donegal's ancestor. The story eventually has to solve two mysteries: the present day murders and the betrayal of Ashley' [...]

    24. This is the second book in the Krewe of Hunters series. It was a great story about civil war reenactments and the ghost that are still around. Jake Mallory had known and loved Ashley Donegal for many years but she was frightened by his ability to see the dead but when there was a murder on her family plantation right after a reenactment, her Grandfather called his friend Adam. Ashley knew that Jack worked for him and knew it would be hard to see him again but she also knew that he could help. As [...]

    25. When someone is murdered during a Civil War reenactment at the Donegal Plantation in the bayous of Louisiana, the Krewe of Hunters, a paranormal team of investigators and part of the FBI, is called to investigate, which brings Krewe member Jake Mallory and Ashley Donegal back together again, after their relationship ended several years ago. There is a long list of suspects, but the ghosts of Marshall and Emma Donegal are trying as best they can to communicate with and protect Jake and Ashley, as [...]

    26. Overall I liked this book more than the first in the series. I felt it was written better and we were able to get a better sense of the relationships in the book. I also felt that the mystery of who the killer was, was written better and was more of a focus than in the first book. I will continue the series at this point. They are easy to read and hold my interest. Would have given 4 stars but the grammatical errors are a little annoying.cially for someone as well known has Graham.

    27. I love Ms. Graham’s writing. She does suspense well. I enjoyed getting know Jake better and seeing into his past a bit. I was disappointed by the lack of continued character development of the rest of the team though. I guess I will just have to keep reading. Also this book is for a mature audience. The sex scenes aren’t overly graphic, but they aren’t bland either. Thankfully there was only one and easily skipped.
