YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I HAUNT is incredible. From the first pages, where Nicki and Evan, her assistant, talk about his troubles with his boyfriend, I was hooked. I wanted to know why Evan's man had changed his email password. I couldn't wait to see who would make a ghostly entrance into Nicki's life. And I wondered if her boyfriend, Joe the doctor, would still be on the scene. Yes, I'm hooked on this series--but good. Fortunately I didn't have long to wait to find out what was in store for Nicki in this installment.
Possession, a ride with the Devil himself and an anorexic hurling accusations set the tone for what is a roller coaster ride. Nicki publicly accused Joe of killing Crystal, a woman whose diet-diminished medical condition made it impossible for Joe to save her. She blames him for her death and, with Satan's help, she plans to get revenge.
There isn't anything not to like about this book. Campy and well-written, with razor-sharp dialogue and a plot that speeds along, Terri Garey's YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I HAUNT is another hit! I look forward to reading more from this talented author.

Joe Bascombe, a surgeon who runs the Emergency Room, is also Nicki's boyfriend. He met her when he saved her life. Though he has had problems coming to terms with the fact that his girlfriend sees and hears dead people, he is finally getting adjusted and is standing by her, no matter what. However, his love and devotion is put to the test when he comes close to losing his job and he could lose Nicki as well.
As Joe and Nicki have coffee at Moonbeams, she notices an extremely thin girl watching Joe with hatred in her eyes. The girl is a ghost named Crystal and she blames Joe for her death even though she was anorexic and too weak to be saved when she arrived at the hospital. It seems that the girl has made a deal with the devil. He has given her the power of possession. As Sammy does a TV commercial on the spot for his new business Divinyls, Crystal takes possession of Nicki's body. As Nicki, she accuses Joe of murder, claiming he killed Crystal Cowert. Crystal goes on to announce that dead people talk to Nicki, something Nicki does not usually let people know. She tells everyone that she will help them speak with their lost loved ones if they come on down to her business. This results in Joe's suspension from the hospital while the matter is investigated. People start showing up at Nicki's shop to speak with their loved ones or to find items they have lost, disrupting her workday. Then Lisa, the hospital attorney, offers to make Joe's problems go away if he will leave Nicki and stay with her. Will Joe take Lisa up on her offer? How can Nicki set everything right again?
YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I HAUNT, the third book of the NICKI STYX series, is a delightfully magical paranormal romance. Although this book has a satisfactory ending, you want to continue reading more. In this novel, Sammy keeps trying to tempt Nicki, but she does her best to use her abilities for good. It also seems as if Nicki may be starting to bond with her twin Kelly.

The love and devotion between Joe and Nicki really adds appeal to this story. You will remember this tale long after you have read the last page. If you enjoy this book, you may want to read the first two books in this series, DEAD GIRLS ARE EASY and A MATCH MADE IN HELL. YOU'RE THE ONE I HAUNT is high on my `recommended read' list.
