Review: Halloween at the Graff by Sinclair Jayne

Starting over at thirty-two is never fun, especially in a town the size of a postage stamp. Chasing that with having to beg for a job she’s wildly over-qualified for and Walker Wilder’s pride is really burned. But now that she’s the new events director for the historic Montana Graff Hotel, she’s tasked with creating buzz and traditions to fill rooms during the off-season. Halloween may not scream touristy, but hiring a spirit-hunting TV crew will definitely grab some headlines... But when the sexy spirit hunter shows up, he haunts more than her dreams.

Calum Quest is done. He’s created an entertainment empire by chasing something he’s never seen and is tired of asking questions with no answers. His life has been defined by ghosts he needs to exorcise, yet, when a red-haired, grey-eyed beauty with a body that melts his mind pours him a double shot of Laphroaig whiskey and challenges him to one more round, how can he say no?

My Review:

After her political career in Washington DC comes to a crashing halt, Walker Wilder is starting her life over again in Marietta, Montana as the new events director at the Graff Hotel.  Her first job is getting the hotel ready for Halloween where she encounters a mysterious chair in the attic.  It was creeping her out and she could have sworn it moved.  Walker starts thinking the idea of a ghost in the hotel would be a great way to bring in more business.  She needs the help of a ghost hunter fast.

Calum Quest, of the television show Ghost Quests, is headed to Marietta to visit one of his friends when he gets the call from Walker about the possibility of a ghost in the hotel.  He didn’t plan on doing any scouting during his trip, but he does have a Halloween show he needs to think about.  Maybe the Graff Hotel would be a good fit for the show.

As Walker and Calum spend time together, they find they are drawn to each other.  But a secret that Walker keeps could threaten their new relationship.  

I was intrigued by the idea of a ghost hunter as the hero in a in a romance book.  So, the fresh idea had me hooked.  It was a well written and interesting book.  But I was left with a couple unanswered questions.  Maybe they will be picked up in future books as this is the start of a new series.
