Dark legacy book 2. Piatkus, 2013. ISBN 9780749956325.
(Age: Adult) Paranormal. Mystery. Romance. In the second in the Dark legacy series, Gwen Frazier returns to a small town, Wilby, Oregon, and finds that her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger has died. She believes that her death is related to two murders that had happened previously and joins together with psychic investigator, Judson Coppersmith, to uncover what has happened. Judson has his own problems. Haunted by dreams he is trying to recover from an undercover investigation that went wrong.
Krentz writes another of her paranormal mysteries with her signature flair and humour. It is not too hard to suspend belief as Gwen goes about her business of reading auras and curing nightmares as well as seeing ghostly projections. Judson of course, is totally gorgeous in a very brooding way and his ability to sense emotions at the scene of crimes helps him as an investigator.
Very light, very quick and easy to read, this is an undemanding book that gives the reader who likes paranormal stories and a strong heroine a few hours of sheer escapism.
