Book: The Ghost Hunter
Author: Lori Brighton
Article Type: Book Review
From Goodreads: When Ashley Hunter inherits the Inn where her father mysteriously vanished years ago, she jumps at the chance to finally uncover the truth about his disappearance. But soon after taking ownership of the decrepit building, Ashley realizes she’s in for far more than she bargained. Not only has she inherited answers to many sought-after questions, she’s also inherited spirits, demons and even fallen angels! Then Cristian arrives, a gorgeous man who insists he merely needs a room to rent. She believes him, until one by one her ghosts start disappearing…
As a fallen angel destined for a life of servitude, Cristian Lucius is relegated to protecting earth from unwanted spirits. But he can’t accomplish this daunting task alone. He requires assistance from the very woman who frustrates him as much as she intrigues him. Cristian is determined to ignore his intense attraction for Ashley, and focus on his mission. If they don’t work together, they won’t have a chance in hell of defeating the demon threatening their lives. The problem is getting Ashley to trust him. No easy task, considering Cristian is the very man responsible for her father’s disappearance.

First Thought when Finishing: When is the next book?
What I Loved: What a fascinating world Lori Brighton has created with Ancient Knights that are now Ushering Angels, Vampires, Werewolves, Faye, Seers, and Witches. I am sure there are several more types of supes to come in this very cool town. I think it can be a hot bed for many stories to come! The action was intense and I loved the twists/turns in the mystery of the basement. I don’t want to give anything away so I will leave it at that!
What I Liked: All of the characters in The Ghost Hunter were likable and you wanted to know so much more about them. I wish we could have grown a bit more attached to them but I have a feeling that will come as the series progresses. There were 2 characters specifically I wanted to learn more about: Camille and Devon. I think they kind of stole the show and I hope they are in the future books!
What left me wanting: I can’t find a description of the next book or its release date (Lori’s blog says maybe end of Jan but there is no description). The title is the Demon Hunter so I am hoping it is about Devon.
Bottom Line: This is a great world that I think Paranormal Fans will enjoy!
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
