Needs more detail 11 juillet 2012

If Heather Graham wants to graduate to genuine murder mystery writing and leave pure romance writing behind she needs to work on her villains and his/her motives. This is generally the one major weak spot in her novels - flimsy motives and no real "clues" (but an abundance of red-herring characters). It's ok to use "madness" or "evil" as motives every now and then but generally a crime needs a bit more meat on its motive bones. I think the problem she has is that she likes to do the big reveal as close to the end as possible but hasnt found a way of really filling us in on the WHY without giving away the WHO. The motive for the murder in The Unholy was fairly unsatisfactory to me. The killer calls him/herself "Vengeance" (won't give spoilers away) but I really didnt see why they would be so set on avenging an earlier "wrong" - it just wasnt motive enough for the murder TODAY. She didnt explain how two characters came to be in collusion with each other either and what the motive Vengeance's partner had (it seemed to me a different murder would have made more sense).

I personally didnt like the use of an actual person - Humphrey Bogart - as a ghost.

Graham has toned down the sex scenes in this book - there is one detailed scene but the others are skimmed over. I think this is definitely an attempt to move away from the "romance novel" tag. I hope she does leave us the Hero and Heroine and their whirlwind romances in her novels - other authors manage to combine both romance and murder very well - my favourite being Erica Spindler and I'm sure if Heather would just work on the murder part- her books would be even more successful.

I always enjoy Graham's books. I like the characters (I wouldn't mind if they weren't quite so physically perfect). I would just prefer it if she was a little more in depth with villain development and motives.

I liked this book. It was a light, fast moving read. A nice change of pace from some of the other books I have been reading recently. And even though this is a Krewe of Hunters book, I didn't feel like I was missing out on any information by not having read any of the other previous books with this subtitle. The characters were fun and it was a nice simple mystery.

An improvement so far, but has a rushed ending 28 juillet 2012
Par ChibiNeko - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'll admit that I've been disappointed with the Krewe of Hunters series as of late. It's not that they're particularly bad as much as they've just been too similar to one another, which makes it hard to really see each one as an individual piece. Graham tries to break out of that mold slightly in this volume and while she does succeed in making it more unique than the previous novel (The Unseen), it still feels like it could have been slightly fresher.

There were things that I liked as well as disliked about this book. I loved the idea of setting the book during a movie remake and bringing in elements from the golden age of Hollywood, as that was a time period when secrets were readily covered up by production companies and gossip could run even hotter than it does now. The book starts off nicely and sets the scene well, with the character of Madison having just enough introduction to make her sparkle. The addition of Bogie as the ghost did make me raise an eyebrow since it seemed like he was there more to up the "old Hollywood" feel, but it's done decently enough to where it doesn't really matter. I can't help but wish that perhaps it'd been a non-famous ghost that Graham had made up herself, as that would've allowed her to do more with the character.

The pacing is decently done for the most of the book, but unfortunately where it comes apart is in the ending. I felt like the ending was just too rushed and was sort of just tacked on, with not enough buildup to give it a nice punch. I can't entirely explain it without being spoilerish, but it felt both predictable and "huh?" at the same time, as the whodunit had me flipping through the book to remind myself of the characters. It's good that it was someone I wasn't predicting, but I would've liked a bit more buildup.

Overall this wasn't bad and it's better than some of the other books in the KoH series, but this just sort of seems to suggest to me that perhaps it's time to finish up this series so Graham can focus on other projects. This is pretty much the same idea as the first four set of books for the original KoH, just with different characters, and I admit that I'd much rather see books that focus on the pre-existing couples than continually introduce umpteen new crews just to have new couplings. After a while it just becomes too overly familiar, and this is what ultimately does this book in: we've seen this before. It's good in that way that all of Graham's novels have that "sit on the beach and drink a cool beverage" sense of fun, but it's just a little too familiar and some fans might just find themselves longing for something slightly different.

It is very hard to get into the story, at the beginning of the book. The story keeps saying the same saying over. The character keeps saying, I know you didn't do it. Then by the sixth chapter of the story, you want to solve the mystery. This book is about the movies and all the special effects. There is a lady that can see ghosts, she can talk to the ghost. The ghost tries to help with the mystery. Keep reading the book, you won't want to put it down afterwards.
Loved the mystery - could do without the sex 18 juillet 2013

This is my first Heather Graham novel. I always thought of her as a romance novelist and I typically stay away from them. I have nothing against love or romance but I prefer mine in a Jane Austen stye. I may give Graham's books another try if I am at a loss for a book but I don't think I will go out and immediately pick up another one.

The Unholy was interesting in the beginning but as we traveled along it became a rather predictable romp. The story line was a little thin when it came to wrapping things up. Lots of loose ends in this book. I don't like it when I find myself saying, "that didn't make sense" or "that was never explained." I did enjoy the "red herrings" she tossed in. Those are always fun.

Having Humphrey Bogart's ghost helping to solve the crime was a unexpected pleasure. I believe she captured his essence pretty well. It is odd that I had no problem believing that there are people who can talk to ghost but I didn't buy that a murder suspect's family was able to bring in a friend to head the police investigation. Has anyone ever heard of conflict of interest?

As I said before, I am not big on the throbbing-member style sex scenes in books. I don't mind a little flirting or lusting, but I just don't need all the details. It is so Paperback. I found it slowed down the pace of the story. I know, I am boring.
