Night is Forever by Heather Graham

Author: Heather Graham
Publisher: Mira (Harlequin)
Date of publication: September 2013

Olivia Gordon works at the Horse Farm, a facility that assists patients with mental and physical recovery; her specialty is animal therapy. She's always loved her job, always felt safe...until now.

People are dying, starting with the facility's founder, whose body is discovered in a ravine on the property-site of a massacre in 1862. And before every death, Liv sees a horse and rider, wearing a soldier's garb, in the night sky.... Warning? Omen? Or clue?

Liv calls in her cousin Malachi and his Krewe, an FBI unit of paranormal investigators, to discover the truth. New Krewe member Dustin Blake knows they need Liv's involvement in the case, yet he's worried about her safety. Because he and Liv quickly become more than colleagues...and he doesn't want to lose her to the endless night.

The Night is Forever continues the Krewe of Hunters series and ends the "Night" trilogy.  The thing I really like about this series is that even though it is the 11th book  any of these really could be read as a stand alone.  So, anyone can jump right in and enjoy.  Each book is a new paranormal mystery and deals with a different "main couple".   In this book, Olivia is a therapist as the Horse Farm.  When the owner and founder is found dead, his ghost tells her that he was murdered.  She calls her FBI agent cousin, Malachi, to come investigate.  Dustin is sent in undercover to help out.

I liked the mystery in this one.  I also liked the history behind the ranch and the ghosts found there.  That is another thing I like about this series.  The author always includes a bit of a history lesson in her stories.  They aren't long and boring, but just enough to add some good context to the story.  I didn't see the killer coming, so that was a nice surprise.  I did like the romance between Olivia and Dustin.  Their first love scene was pretty amusing.  

The next book, The Cursed comes out in May.   I can't wait to read it!
