Presence by Heather Graham

Published: December 28, 2010
Number of pages: 432
Genre: Paranormal - Suspense
Series: Harrison Investigations #2

The ultimate moneymaking plan—buy the ancient, run-down Scottish castle and turn it into a tourist destination. Toni Fraser and her friends will put on reenactments combining fact and fiction, local history, murder and an imaginary laird named Bruce MacNiall.

Just as someone arrives, claiming to actually be Laird MacNiall—a tall, dark, formidable Scot somehow familiar to Toni—the bodies of young women are found, dumped and forgotten in the nearby town.

But even stranger, how is it possible this laird exists? Toni invented Bruce MacNiall for the performance…yet sinister, lifelike dreams suggest he's connected to the recent deaths. Bruce claims he wants to help catch the murderer. But even if she wants to, can Toni trust him…when her visions seem to be coming from within the very eyes of the killer himself?

What did I think of this book:
I just now realized this book was a part of a series when I was getting ready to write my review. Luckily I was able to read this as a stand alone as I did not feel lost at all. I am now awaiting a copy of the first book as it sounds just as good. This was also the first book I have read by Heather and I have to say I am hooked. I do not normally pick up paranormal books but I would not classify this as that type I would call it more of a suspense story but the added ghost makes it a paranormal I guess. The author had me hooked from the very first page right up until the end. She did a good job of leading you down the path of believing one person may have been commiting crimes/murders while questioning if it could be a second person then at the end she throws in a twist. I thought she did a good job with the setting and making me feel as if I was right in Scotland with this group of friends. This is a must read in my opinion.
