Book Review: IN THE AIR TONIGHT by Lori Handeland

Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks 
Publication: June 2, 2015
Genre: PNR
Source: E-Arc
Rating: 3 Stars


Four centuries ago, in a small Scottish village, three baby girls escaped the wrath of a witch hunter. Today, one young woman will learn about her secret history, her heart's destiny, and the sisters she never knew she had...

With her blue-black hair and dark eyes, Raye Larsen has never fit in with the Scandinavian community of New Bergin, Wisconsin. Being adopted is part of the reason she feels like an outsider, but what really sets Raye apart is her ability to see dead people. Everywhere.

She’s learned to keep her visions to herself . . . until she stumbles onto the ghost of a murder victim who needs Raye’s help. Enter Bobby Doucet, a distractingly handsome homicide detective who has been tracking a killer all the way from New Orleans. Could this be the break in his case he’s been looking for all along?

Meanwhile, the deeper Raye gets involved with the case—and with Bobby—the closer she comes to unlocking the mystery of her own origins. What she discovers about herself could destroy everything she knows . . . and everyone she loves. Is finding the truth worth the risk?

Filled with dark magic, dazzling romance, and dire suspense, this is the first book in a thrilling new series by New York Times bestselling author Lori Handeland.

Calling all PNR fans! Are you looking for a new paranormal book full of sexy characters, a fast paced storyline, and an all around fun read? Look no further. In the Air Tonight is as mysterious as it is romantic. The story starts off four hundred years into the past. It's there we meet Henry and Prudence; witches that are about to get burned at the stake. Meanwhile, they have three baby girls that they must send into the future to remain safe. 

Fast-forward four hundred years and we meet Raye; the girl who never quite fit in. She doesn't look like anyone in town (making her very different indeed) and she can see and interact with the dead! Very creepy if you ask me! The beginning of the story started off too slow. Once the ball got moving though, the more I wanted to read and know more about the characters. Bobby Doucet is a detective all the way from New Orleans. He gets brought all the way to New Bergin, Wisconsin because a case
he has been working on down in Louisiana resemble what's going on in New Bergin. 

Bobby and Raye decide to start working together admittedly after Raye has a brush with the killer. The two aren't able to hold back the insane chemistry they have between one another. Will they be able to help find a way to brig to light a past Raye didn't really know she had? What will happen once Bobby goes back down to New Orleans?

The supporting characters were just as appealing as the two leads. You invest yourself in the story and by the end of it, you want more. Good thing the second one comes out in a few weeks! I look forward to seeing more of where and how the sisters stories will end. Make sure you pick this one up!
