The plot moved along at a cracking pace, it kept me interested and had plenty of action. There are bigger plot arcs that aren’t really finished in this one, which gives Keta plenty of opportunity to bring these boys and girls back for more. I loved the female characters, Maddie and Sacheen are headstrong and know themselves well. It was a lovely thing to see strong women in a romance novel with such strong males.
The mixing of Indian folklore/beliefs with Mexican and Christian beliefs worked really well. Given the setting, and the little Indian translation list at the start I was initially concerned that there’d be too much in Indian or Mexican and I’d miss plot points because I don’t speak/read either. Thankfully, Keta took care of me, and the different languages ended up giving the story a lovely exotic spice, without being too much. There wasn’t any point where I didn’t understand what was going on.
There were a couple of points that bothered me (hence the 3.5-4 star rating). I disliked how easily it was for Uday to lure Sacheen away from the rest of them (it seemed a little too convenient that Maddie knew the answers but it’d slipped her mind to share with someone else), and it was a little rushed at the ending. Minor things really, just the last rough edges of an otherwise enjoyable read. The manuscript needed another once over, to catch some minor typos, but it was mostly really well written.
I would recommend it for romance lovers, paranormal fans and general readers who are interested in an engaging plot, strong characters and action with a fantastic setting.
I received this book free of charge from the author in return for an honest review.
Ghost and Evil Spirits, Oh My! Talking about one exciting adventurous story - WOW! This captivating story combines Indian culture spiritual beliefs with Catholic spiritual casting of Evil Spirits in order to conquer a cursed ghost and send him on to the depts of hell where he belongs.
The story is thrilling and I find myself amazed at how addictive not only the story was but with the characters- they totally hooked me with their charisma and cultured way of life.
I I loved how the author brought a love between two people that was once thought forever lost but rekindles it with an undeniable steamy passion that is worth dying for. Deacon and Maddie's chemistry Sparks with playfulness, feistiness, and sizzling Fire. (3 Flames)
I loved the backgrounds on every character. Deacon's family history is heart breaking especially his remorse over the loss of his parents and then the kidnapping of his two sisters by the Apache Indian. Maddie's Mexican heritage consisted of living up to her own mothers legacy of being a Ghost Chaser or miracle worker - a legacy she didn't have the heart to come forward and break her people's heart with a truth that she didn't have her mothers gift. Then there was Sacheen, an indian's life is so different from the white mans. Where "The white man thought of home as a building with doors and windows. The Apache thought of his camp fire as home. "
This stunning story is awesome. Every scene is still playing through my mind like an internal movie show. I totally look forward to the next installment especially since the author gives us high hopes with Deacon's brother Gideon ans the "Wild Cat" Apache Indian Sacheen. Love is definitely on the horizon.
I highly recommend this book - this new series is one every paranormal fanatic will love.

Chasing the Dead gave me everything I have come to expect from a good western romance: strong, likeable heroines, desert sunsets and palpable settings I could lose myself in, and Most Important Of All, that dreamy lustable male character. Deacon is everything a western hero should be: strong, manly, outdoorsy (he breaks horses), rugged, stubborn, insanely handsome, and ever so swoonfully dedicated to the one love of his life. (Of course, in real life, who could live with a man like this? BUT, that’s why we have book boyfriends. They stay in their books where they belong, forever hot, twenty-something, and forever the ardent lover.)
Now for the rest of the story. I was a little unsure of the ‘communicating with spirits’ bit, but this was very well done. The spirits were sit within the context of Native American beliefs. I am far from an expert in this culture, but knowing Ms Diablo, she will have done her background research and traditional customs will have been drawn on. The Spanish certainly was spot on, except for one instance where it stood out like a sore thumb - and then I realised that a gringo was speaking, and it made me laugh instead.
I loved that the main character came from a Mexican background. I liked reading about a heroine whose skin was not alabaster.Read more ›
