The Spirit Chaser by Kat Mayor
Published: November 2015
Some places are too evil. Some places should be left alone.
Austin Cole has it made. Star of the hit television show Spirit Chaser Investigations, he has become the world’s most famous paranormal investigator. Although hard work, a talented investigation team, and favorable genetics have something to do with it, it’s his lack of fear and willingness to take risks no one else will that make Spirit Chaser Investigations cable’s number-one show. When a ghost-hunt-gone-wrong seriously injures his best friend and lead psychic, Austin is forced to find a replacement for a team member he considers irreplaceable.
Casey Lawson can’t catch a break. She’s been on her own since she turned eighteen and is scraping by as a part-time psychic and cashier at a New Age store. When a desperate Austin Cole calls her up and offers her a position on his team, has her fortune finally changed?
He’s a control freak; she’s stubborn and opinionated. It takes time, but when they finally realize they’re working on the same side, everything clicks, both on and off screen.
Just when things are looking up, a new threat emerges. Over the years, Austin has angered plenty of demons, and one of them has set her sights on him. Now he’s the one in danger, and it’s up to the team to rescue him from the riskiest investigation of their lives.
I LOVE reality televisions ghost hunter and paranormal shows, so the premise of this book reeled me right in. It was like all my guilty pleasures thrown into one,
As I began to bond with the characters and understand the storyline I was equally intrigued and perfectly happy to skip sections. The romance scenes in the story really took away from the progression of the story. I believe the storyline would have advanced much quicker and smoother without the explicit bits detailing the romance between our male and female protagonist.
With that being said, I did love the story. It was intriguing and rather original. It was a great quick read, with potential for much better if the expanse of the romance was excluded.
I look forward to reading more of her writing.
