The Seekers (Krewe of Hunters #28)
THE TRUTH IS SCARIER THAN FICTIONKerri Wolf has joined the crew of The Seekers, a show that searches for paranormal phenomena, as they explore a supposedly haunted old inn on the road between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. The place is famous for its warm welcome—and infamous for being the site of an ax murder rampage in the 1920s. They’ve barely begun when a very real dead body is discovered in the basement. As a nonfiction author, Kerri is supposed to be the rational one, but she can’t explain a terrifying apparition that seems to be both a threat and a warning.Former detective Joe Dunhill knows what she’s going through—the strange gift of being able to see and talk to the dead is a struggle he shares. A new member of the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, he’s on the team investigating the disturbing death. The town is steeped in old-fashioned superstition, and the deeper Joe and Kerri plunge into the dark secrets of the inn, the closer they get to a devastating truth. Will a bloody history be repeated? Or can the spirits of the past reach out to stop a killer?

But I'm really happy that' I'm getting back into this series and discovering all of the ghostly fun again. And I had no problem jumping back into this series with such a late book, so I'd say it can definitely be read as a standalone. The story did start off a little slow as all of the characters were introduced, but once we started to really get into the mystery there was tons of intrigue and I was captivated. I loved how the history of the Inn was weaved into the story so well and was made to be really interesting. Sometimes so much history in a book can make me feel like I'm reading a textbook since it's so stiff, but that wasn't the case at all and this author had me dying to find out more. Overall, I'm certainly going to be going back and reading the books I missed from this series. Ms. Graham never fails to have me enthralled by her stories and it's like reading a true crime novel but with ghosts and just a little hint of romance involved. I can't wait to see what else she'll have in store for the Krewe of Hunters.ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

    When I was offered this book by the publisher through NetGalley, I wasn't sure it was a good idea to jump into the 28th book in the series but I took a chance anyway and found I enjoyed this police procedural with paranormal undertones very much.

Almost all When I was offered this book by the publisher through NetGalley, I wasn't sure it was a good idea to jump into the 28th book in the series but I took a chance anyway and found I enjoyed this police procedural with paranormal undertones very much. This actually might have been a good book to begin with because a new member is joining the special FBI task force known as the Krewe of Hunters, one Joe Dunhill, late of the Savannah Police Department, who is now going to train with the FBI. Almost all the action in this mystery happens at the Miller Inn and Tavern in York County, PA, which is infamous for several grisly murders that were committed there back in 1926. A crew from the hit tv show 'The Truth Seekers' is there supposedly to see whether rumors of ghosts haunting the historic inn might be true. Also part of the group is a true crime writer named Keri Wolf who specializes in digging into historic murder cases to see if she can uncover new facts--in this case, she wants to prove that the man who was killed by a lynch mob for the heinous murders was in fact innocent. At the inn is a museum with a fascinating collection of old photos and newspaper articles she can't wait to explore. Before much work can be done however, a mutilated corpse is found in the basement of the inn, the body of FBI agent Julie Castro who was working on the kidnapping case of a wealthy NY teenager. Why was she brought there? Agent Dallas Wicker of the Krewe of Hunters is brought in to investigate, along with Joe as his consultant, much to the consternation of the local police detective, Catrina Billings. Is it possible that the modern-day murder is somehow connected to the past? If so, could one or more of the inn's ghosts guide them to the truth?The tension in the plot builds nicely as they piece the puzzle together with some good old-fashioned detective work. But can they complete the whole picture before someone else is killed? Some hair-raising situations, well-drawn characters, interesting historical facts and even a little romance complete this fascinating mystery. Many thanks to the publisher for providing me with an arc via NetGalley for an honest review. I've found a new series to enjoy reading!

There was already the TV crew of ghost hunters in the haunted inn, of which historian novelist Keri was a part of. Agent Joe Dunhill along with boss Dallas met them at the inn where the dead body was posed admixt a lot of blood. A satanic cult from the 1920 was suspected, and the investigation rolled on. Having read books in this series many years ago, this was book 28, it was still extremely easy to follow the proceedings. The author Heather Graham has given the cast of characters list at the beginning of the book. Both Joe and Keri could see the ghost which had a message from the grave. It was upto Keri to search the annals of books in the museum for the past and Joe to find the clues of the murder to get to the truth. The story started slow, then soon picked up speed when the author brought the scary bits of history into the present. I was quite eager to know the story of the Ghosts. Joe was a cool dude, I wouldn't mind having a guy like him in my life. I wished Keri was braver. The plot had its great end reveal which quite shocked me. Didn't expect that person to be the leader. And the Ghosts were laid to rest.It worked as a standalone and kept me quite hooked to the entire story. Heather Graham is a great storyteller who knows how to combine romance with suspense and supernatural. Overall, a fun afternoon.

    The Seekers is book 28 in the Krewe Hunters series by Heather Graham. I have never read anything by this author but my dad raves about her so when given the opportunity to read this book I jumped at the chance. Although this is along way into a long series I had absolutely no trouble following the story and the characters. In fact I feel the need to now go back to where it all began and read the series from the start. For me this was a very quick and fun read but not without its drama and gore.

I really enjoyed my first Heather Graham read.The Krewe Hunters are a group of agents which special abilities - they see and feel things that other people don't. After the brutal and ritualistic murder of a female FBI agent who was working on a kidnapping of a teenager, the Hunters are called in for their expertise. The victim was found in the basement of an old haunted house where historical non fiction writer Kerri is working with a group of ghost hunters on a web series. The crime scenes shows similarities with murders for the 1920's in the very same house. A story of paranormal activity, ghosts, murder and even a love story. This book has something for everyone and is definitely worth picking up.Thanks to Netgalley and Harelquin MIRA US and Canada for my advanced copy of this book to read.

Because of that when I was asked if I wanted to review The Seekers my first thought was, no. But I thought about it and decided to give it a try. like I said, I really enjoy Graham's books so it would be a shame to say no. I am so glad I didn't. The Seekers reminded me why I enjoy her books so much. She writes wonderful characters and I love how they interact with each other. Her writing draws you into the story and takes you to a different place. The fun part of this story is the ghost part. I love those shows that are looking for ghosts. I watch them late at night than during the night when I use the bathroom I can't look in the mirror for fear of what I'll see. Sure me with crazy hair but what else?You'll love Kerri and Joe. Both are wonderful characters. I liked how their relationship developed. You felt like you were moving along with them. I loved the ghost but wish they had a bigger roll in the story. The set up of the book was slightly slow but it does pick up, once it does the story really moves. It's funny how even with me being behind I jump right in and didn't feel like I was missing something. The Seekers is part of a series but can be read totally on its own.

Graham never fails to pull me in even on my twenty-seven adventure with the Krewe.Kerri Wolf was asked to be a historian consultant during a Seekers Investigation of the haunted inn, owned by the famous movie star Carl Brentwood. Graham did an excellent job of feeding us local history, the inn’s background and laying out the grizzly murders.Things turn upside down on their first night of recording and investigating when a dead body is discovered and Kerri believes she sees a woman dressed in white standing next to the victim.Our FBI case opens with characters we met previously in The Summoning. So if you are looking to dive into the series for the first time, that is a good book to start with. Although each book contains its own murder-mystery and romance.Joe Dunhill was the former Detective in Savannah who first called the FBI in on a missing persons case. He has been invited to join the Krewe of Hunters, but before attending training is pulled in to assist when the new owner of the haunted inn requested him. He will once again be working with Agent Dallas Wicker. The local police aren’t happy to have the FBI involved and believe the Seekers are responsible for the killing, but it turns out the victim is one of the FBI’s own and the inn wasn’t the initial murder scene.The case was an interesting one, as those from the past come to Kerri with warnings and visions providing clues that help steer the Krewe towards solving the case. Kerri is paired off with Joe. The chemistry between them was fun, sometimes snarky, and I liked how it played out. The two travel, research the past, and find themselves in danger more than once. Quite a few times things were intense.Graham served the romance on the side as the case took center stage, but it offered some tender moments, laughter and amped up the intensity. I enjoyed how Graham wove the past into the present from the case of the dead FBI agent was working and back around to the murders that took place at the inn long ago. It was clever and felt plausible. This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Reviewer

Several characters from The Summoning return in The Seekers, one of the creepier books in this series. A young actor, Carl Brentwood, recently bought the Miller Inn and Tavern, located between Harrisburg and Philadelphia. Because the tavern has a story behind it, and a reputation for being haunted, he invites the crew of a popular web show about haunted locations, the Truth Seekers, to check it out before he renovates it. Keri Wolf, an author who researches and writes about historical true crimes is also invited. While the crew is still setting up cameras, Keri and one of the women from the web crew discover a body on a makeshift altar in the basement. It's the body of a missing FBI special agent.The Krewe of Hunters is a special unit of the FBI that deals with crimes and the paranormal. Many of the agents see or talk with ghosts. Dallas Wicker is charged with working with a new recruit, Joe Dunhill. Because Carl dealt with Dallas and Joe in a previous case in Savannah, he asks for their help. Joe hasn't yet gone through the FBI academy, but he serves as a special consultant. And, he immediately knows Keri Wolf is lying when she says she didn't see a ghost in the basement. Graham's Krewe of Hunters books always combine historical elements with the paranormal. In this case, she deals with witches and fear, possible cults that have existed in the area for years, a tavern owner who killed people in his basement, the lynching of a possible killer, and the fear that others might be emulating the tavern owner, as part of a cult today. The suspicion and stories of the area, and killings that may have been going on for years, makes The Seekers creepier than other books in the series. The paranormal elements of the stories are seldom the eerie factor in these books. Usually, it is the evil in people that adds the element of fear.The Seekers jumps right into the murders with the discovery of that first body. But, Keri's research adds to the horror as the stories accumulate about murder from the past, and the people who were involved. It only gets worse in modern times. The Seekers is not for the squeamish, but it's one more example of Heather Graham's ability to tell a terrific story.

    3.5 stars. The Seekers kept me turning the pages—and constantly rethinking whom I suspected in the grisly murder of an FBI agent. As usual in a Krewe of Hunters novel, the present-day mystery is tied to events in the past, the hero and heroine can both see ghosts, and their attraction is nearly instantaneous… but this time, said attraction was offset by their initial irritation with each other. Both Keri and Joe are eminently likable, and despite their mutual prickliness, I had no question where 3.5 stars.

As usual in a Krewe of Hunters novel, the present-day mystery is tied to events in the past, the hero and heroine can both see ghosts, and their attraction is nearly instantaneous… but this time, said attraction was offset by their initial irritation with each other. Both Keri and Joe are eminently likable, and despite their mutual prickliness, I had no question where things were headed; it was more a matter of when than if. I particularly liked Joe’s respectful, even courteous protectiveness. It isn’t machismo or alpha-male posturing; he treats Keri like an intelligent partner whose strengths and training lie elsewhere.Sometimes the books in this series are a little too graphic or creepy for me, and this one came close a few times, particularly in the descriptions of what had been done to Agent Castro, and to the inn’s guests in the past. (shudder)I also had a few reservations when it came to believability. As good a cop as Joe Dunhill is, he hasn’t been through the FBI academy yet, so he’s not an official member of the Krewe; nor is he still on the Savannah police force. (He was a secondary character in The Summoning.) The police and FBI can both be sticklers about turf, jurisdiction, and civilian involvement. The Krewe are a bit more laid back, but local cops and other FBI units might not be be. So I was surprised that Joe wasn’t challenged more often for acting as a full member of the investigation. There were also some logical leaps and assumptions that I’m not sure real agents would make, particularly in drawing parallels between the past and present. (That, too, is typical of this series; I’ve learned to live with it.)Nonetheless, I enjoyed the suspenseful ride and the just-creepy-enough atmosphere, plowing through The Seekers at top speed to find out “what happens next.” And by the scenes just before the denouement, I had pegged almost all the characters’ guilt or innocence correctly, which is always gratifying. I like books that can keep me guessing, but I also like being able to figure out at least some of the mystery myself. The Seekers delivered on both counts.

    For me this was just okay. There is an episode at the beginning of the book where a characters sees a ghost and then it felt like most of the book was just rehashing that original incident. I never felt a strong connection to any of the characters (though that may be because this is book 28 in the series and the first I've read so I don't know the history of these characters). Overall, I wanted more tension and more actual plot.

Another fantastic ghostly suspense from this bestselling author, one that sends delightful shivers down the spine and has readers biting their nails in anticipation. All the characters are strong and very vivid which makes it easy for readers to become completely caught up in the story and as for Joe and Keri, well their chemistry is strong and sizzles with lots of intensity. Their relationship is sweet and moves right along, despite all the happenings during the investigation and a makes quite a cheery contrast to the suspense of the plot.The plot takes place at the perfect pace to build up the suspense as clues to the past are hard to come by and the spirits of the past are there to help. Heather Graham has gift for providing the right details and a wonderful setting for her stories which make it easy for readers to picture the story as it happens. Solving the crimes of the past to solve the crimes of the present makes the plot a bit complex and very intriguing and with unexpected surprises filling this adrenaline pumping story, there is no way for the readers to guess who the culprit is.

    This book was a bit like a Criminal Minds episode with ghosts thrown in. I think this will appeal to readers who are looking for a crime mystery thriller with paranormal elements.

    Thank you NetGalley and the publishers for the eARC.This was my second in the Krewe of Hunters series and my reaction was the same: not for me. I didn't like it, not the story, or the characters or the writing. Heather Graham is enormously popular, so I'm definitely in the minority. But this author is just not my style, sorry!

Some ghostly appearances later and a trail of creepy clues put Joe and Keri in the path of some psychotic killers. Fast paced and action packed, the story drew me in with the mystery and the budding romance was just icing on the cake for a good read. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

    The seekers started off a little slow for me, but once it figured out where it wanted to go it was an enjoyable mystery with ghost and light romance. As always Heather Graham throws some history in there, enough to snag the interest of the curious. There is a murder or two in the present and ghosts from the past. It was nice for a few visits or mentions of some of the original Krewe and I look forward the the next ghostly sighting.. thank you to Heather Graham, publisher and NetGalley for the ar The seekers started off a little slow for me, but once it figured out where it wanted to go it was an enjoyable mystery with ghost and light romance.

    Thank you to the publishers and NetGalley for allowing me to review this book.I enjoyed the story, but I have to say that I wasn't blown away. I felt the timeline was rushed, and the characters weren't fully realized. I felt the overall book could have been deeper and richer than it was. The book is apparently one in a series, but stands alone fairly well.

I felt the timeline was rushed, and the characters weren't fully realized. I felt the overall book could have been deeper and richer than it was. The book is apparently one in a series, but stands alone fairly well. A paranormal group called the Truth Seekers contact a famous actor, Carl, and a historical true crime writer, Keri to investigate an inn with a deadly history in Pennsylvania. When the case turns deadly, and an FBI agent out of New York is found brutally murdered in the inn's basement, the Krewe is called in.I felt the relationship between Keri and Joe developed far too quickly. In a matter of just a couple of days they go from absolute strangers to involved. I found Carl to be far too young and childish, always scuttling around behind the investigator's coattails. The Truth Seekers also were basically just names until their storyline was needed again in link to the murder. While I liked the information about the Pennsylvanian hex culture and Amish, the fact of it was there just wasn't enough substance to the book to make it great. It's an easy beach read, but not something I'd seek out for a good thrill.

    When it is hot as heck outside and there is nothing cool to do but reading as everything else makes you end up a sweaty mess, it is the perfect day for a speed reader. I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸. THE TRUTH IS SCARIER THAN FICTIONKeri Wolf has joined the crew of The Seekers, a show that searches for paranormal phenomena, as they explore a supposedly haunted old inn on the road between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. The place is famous for its warm welcome—and infamous for being the site of an axe murder rampage in the 1920s. They’ve barely begun when a very real dead body is discovered in the basement. As a nonfiction author, Keri is supposed to be the rational one, but she can’t explain a terrifying apparition that seems to be both a threat and a warning.Former detective Joe Dunhill knows what she’s going through—the strange gift of being able to see and talk to the dead is a struggle he shares. A new member of the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, he’s on the team investigating the disturbing death. The town is steeped in old-fashioned superstition, and the deeper Joe and Keri plunge into the dark secrets of the inn, the closer they get to a devastating truth. Will a bloody history be repeated? Or can the spirits of the past reach out to stop a killer?The "Krewe of Hunters" is an incredible series of spooky mysteries that are a delight to read - this one did not disappoint at all. The characters are well fleshed out and the story interesting and very well written and it is a perfect addition to the series. (If you have not read any of the previous 27 d not worry, this works as a stand-alone book!) An inn is a perfect place for the axe murder rampage to have had happened in and a superstitious town is a fascinating place to read about as well. Fabulous read!As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "Social Influencer Millennials" on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it 🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪

    Long before I started reading contemporary romance, I blazed through every suspense, thriller, or paranormal book that I could get my greedy hands on. Guess what happened?!? The triple B happened. Bored. Burned out. Busy. Heather Graham wrote her first book in 1982 so I’m surprised that I haven’t read one of hers before. Now that I have, I will be back. Grab your coffee and let’s chat about The Seekers by Heather Graham.The Seekers is book #28 in the Krewe of Hunters series.

The triple B happened. Bored. Burned out. Busy. Heather Graham wrote her first book in 1982 so I’m surprised that I haven’t read one of hers before. Now that I have, I will be back. Grab your coffee and let’s chat about The Seekers by Heather Graham.The Seekers is book #28 in the Krewe of Hunters series. Each book is a standalone but there are common characters who are woven into each book mainly the Krewe of Hunters which is an FBI Special Task Force. Each Krewe Agent has special abilities which allows them to solve strange and unusual cases. I had no problem diving in thanks to a Cast of Characters which was included at the beginning of the book. Heather Graham’s writing and attention to detail drew out the history nerd in me and I think that I might be hooked! Let me say now, that the details might bore and bog down some people but not me! A 17-year-old has been kidnapped from the Upper West of New York City. The FBI agent assigned to her case has been brutely murdered and moved to the basement of an Inn in Pennsylvania. A haunted Inn which was the sight of a brutal mass murder in 1926. The Inn’s new owner, a young Hollywood heartthrob, is working with Truth Seekers, a ghost-hunting TV show, and Keri Wolf, a writer who specialized in historical true crime, to once and for all document if the Inn is truly haunted. All of whom were in the Inn when the FBI agent’s body was found. All of whom are now suspects in the murder. It is up the Krewe Agents to talk to all of the witnesses both the alive and the dead, to figure out who the killer was and stop them before it happens again.This book kept me on the edge of my seat and a little bit scared. I really have to stop reading this genre right before I go to sleep. There were so many suspects and I didn’t put all of the pieces together until right at the very end. My rating for Heather Graham’s The Seekers a solid 5 out of 5 propellers!

After having a bit of unexpected paranormal help in solving his last case, and seeking to put his new talent to use, he is tagging along with agent Dallas Wicker as they investigate their latest case. Keri Wolf is a writer who researches historical crimes and then documents her findings. She has been invited to witness and document the exploration into an old building in York, Philadelphia where a mass murderer reportedly lived and killed his prey. The historical story includes the death of a young woman at the hands of the innkeeper, and her father, so deranged from grief, then killed him and massacred the other inn inhabitants, with restless ghosts still haunting the Inn. Along with the new owner, Carl Brentwood, and the “Truth Seekers’, a crew of paranormal investigators, they also plan to try to validate the haunting. Shortly after Keri’s arrival, a woman is found dead in the basement of the old inn, her body splayed out on an altar of sorts, covered in blood. She also sees another figure, a woman in white, staring at the body with tears running down her face… before she disappears. The York County Police investigate, led by the abrasive Detective Catrina Billings. When the body is identified as an FBI agent, the Krewe of Hunters is called in to oversee the investigation. As Keri, Carl & the Krewe join forces and share information, they seek answers as to why an FBI agent from NY has become the latest victim of violent crime in PA and begin to suspect a link in their cases somehow. Meanwhile a pair of old ghosts recognize their intent to set the past right, and do their best to steer Keri & Joe in the right direction…Filled with rich history of the area, likeable characters, mystery, paranormal suspense and a touch of romance, this book will hit the spot for paranormal suspense fans everywhere! Great read!! I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.

    Omg this book was so thrilling and scared me so good, that when a firework went off in the night I fell out of my bed. It was hilarious and I’m now the laughing stock in my house! But I’m not one who has ever had a book scare me and I’ve read Stephen King. This was the first Krewe book I’ve read and as a night owl I love to read at night and this one got me good. Heather Graham’s writing just drew me in with all the details of the haunted inn and I felt as though I was right there myself.

Heather Graham’s writing just drew me in with all the details of the haunted inn and I felt as though I was right there myself. I was witnessing it with these characters and it scared me and I had to stop reading the book several times cause I was scared and I thought my little apartment was haunted. Lol I am very scared paranormal activity and this book was so well written and so descriptive that it had me so involved and I’m so glad it wasn’t a paperback cause I’d probably bend the pages back as hard as I was grilling my iPad, Keri is a very independent historian who likes to learn about crime scenes and history and never likes to speculate. Joe is a cop who is now working with the FBI Krewe team. Joe has just recently learned that he can see and hear ghosts and is trying to understand what that means to him and how he can help others with this. Before he goes to training he is sent to on this case to help in Pennsylvania Dutch country where a FBI agent is found dead in an old inn. Keri thought she saw a lady in white when she saw the dead agent but is not quite sure cause no one else saw her. There is some sparks between her and Joe but they don’t know what to think about it. Is it the haunted inn or is it more? Can they solve this case before more are killed due to the possible curse? Or is there a murderer among them? This book kept me on the edge and I literally couldn’t read it fast enough. I loved it so much and I am now going to go back and read more of this series, even though it scared me, But who doesn’t love a thrill. I highly recommend this book especially if you love ghosts and crime thrillers,
