I don’t really know how to review this. Some parts of it were good, some less so, but the biggest problem was the two different storylines running parallel. It would’ve worked better in two books, but I guess one of them isn’t done yet, working as the main series arc.
As far as the main story goes – the haunted house, the clairvoyant in denial etc. – the pacing was good and the characterization also, the plot interesting, but once again, I didn’t particularly like the heroine (the denial part just bugged me) and the hero seemed a bit bland. I guess the supporting cast (Sierra in particular) stole the show in this one.
