From the Back Cover
How do you send a killer to the grave when he’s already dead?
Having narrowly averted an (under)World War, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’s voodoo queen just keeps on giving—leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.
Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity—forever. But one wrong step and they’ll be digging their own graves.

Five weeks have pass since the events of THIS SIDE OF THE GRAVE. Cat can't seem to get rid of Marie's power and ghosts still flock to her. Cat's ghost friend Fabian finally has a request for help: the ghost Fabian is in love with needs help eradicating another ghost and wants Cat's help doing it. Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter and didn't necessarily stop once he died. He's used the fear and torture of innocent women to increase his own power giving him the ability to inflict harm on flesh even when he remains spectral. So, how do you kill someone who is already dead?Read more ›
Cat and Bones are trying to enjoy their time as a married couple, but Cat's appeal to ghosts has not yet worn off. Ghosts flock to her like the mother ship. A ghost killed during the witch trials has come to ask Cat and Bones help killing another ghost, Heinrich-the witch hunter. Every year, he is able to become human on All Hallows Eve when he burns women alive to gain power. Add to this mystery a shady government agent trying to take over Cat's old department and you have a pretty good book.
The pacing was better than the last, and it held my attention. Cat and Bones still have sparks but their romance is secondary to the overall mystery. All the old gang, minus Mencheres and Vlad, are present to lend a hand which was nice. I could tell that the government agent is going to play a big role in the next book, because there is a lot of questions left unanswered regarding who he is working for. While I am still interested in Cat and Bones, I really am more interested in her spin off series where the author develops love intrests for all of our favorite characters. I can't wait to see who she pairs with Tate and Ian....did I imagine possibly Cat's mom being thrown in with Ian...maybe wishful thinking.
Overall, I liked this book. I thought it was better than her last but still not as good as the first ones. Again, my reasoning is that I enjoy the love story aspect more than the mystery. Frost is a talented author, and I will definitly check out her next book.
*I won't write spoilers for this book, however, if you have not read the first few books of the series, there may be some series spoilers in this review*
I am a huge Cat and Bones fan. My first paranormal romance book was book 1, Halfway to the Grave, and I have read that one multiple times already. A big draw to the series for me is the sizzling attraction and chemistry between Cat and Bones. I love that they are so loyal to each other, and through the books their relationship grows and strengthens. Throw in the vampire drama, the danger, the fighting, the flying, the books are all amazing and so much fun to read. In book 5, ghosts begin to play a more prominent role in the supernatural community, and in One Grave At A Time, the story revolves around ghosts. Cat and Bones seek and fight a new enemy, a deadly ghostly serial killer, but their usual skills are of no use to them in this installment in the Night Huntress series.
The beginning of this story was a bit slow, there was not a lot of action to begin with. Cat and Bones learn about the serial killer ghost and decide to seek him out and try to figure out how to kill a specter. Along the way, they pick up a new ghost (Fabian's lady friend) and a medium. There are plenty of humorous moments and thoughts, and Cat and Bones are still as territorial as ever. When the real ghost hunting gets going, Spade Denise, Ian, and even Cat's mom join the group. The new leader of the "homeland security" squad is a tool and for some reason hates Cat. There is quite a bit going on, making for engaging reading.
However, this book was definitely not my favorite in the series.Read more ›
