Book Review: Night of the Loving Dead
Night of the Loving Dead (Pepper Martin, book 4) by Casey Daniels.
Introducing sleuth Pepper Martin...And now, in her fourth hip, quirky mystery, she's all ours. Pepper Martin, heiress-turned-cemetery- tour-guide, often has her hands full with two hotties and the ghosts who won't let her rest or work, or shop in peace. Now the specter of a young woman in a lab coat wants Pepper's help. Before the woman died, she worked with a sexy, mysterious doctor who coincidentally once saved Pepper's life and who the woman claims is now in danger. But Pepper doesn't know that there's more to the story, including a devious doctor and an obsessive, crazy love.
Looking for a fashion-conscious detective to the dead? Pepper Martin is a fun, spunky character with a penchant for getting in way over her curly red tresses. Night of the Loving Dead is the fourth book in the Pepper Martin series, a book I grabbed from the bargain bin, and it was such a fun read that I'll be going back to check out the other books in this series. Pepper can speak with the dead and uses her gift to solve mysteries for the ghosts she encounters. Since she's not dead herself, she tends to get a bit distracted by the hot men she attracts with her good looks and unique style. Who said you can't wear stiletto boots and a mini skirt to a cemetery...during a snowstorm? A lighthearted blend of mystery, supernatural suspense, and paranormal romance.
I recommend Night of the Loving Dead (Pepper Martin, book 4) to readers of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, paranormal suspense, and especially to fans of paranormal mysteries. Night of the Loving Dead may appeal to fans of the Weather Warden series by Rachel Caine and the Cassandra Palmer series by Karen Chance.
Sensitive reader warning: mild violence, sexual situations.
