Sometimes the only way to find love is to face death...
Paranormal investigator Kerry Baker has seen it all. But nothing in her work with the Phantoms team prepares her for the most terrifying ghost of all-seeing her doppelganger. Rumored to be a foreshadowing of one's death, the spectre shakes Kerry to the core...sending her into the arms of her best friend and fellow Phantom cast member, Paul Leake, for comfort.
Until a kiss changes everything.
Paul has been in love with Kerry for ages, unwilling to compromise their friendship. As their investigation in a ghost town grows more intense, however, so does the chemistry between Paul and Kerry. With her life in danger and their jobs on the line, giving into their attraction couldn't be a worseidea-and yet they can't bring themselves to stop it. Even if it kills her...

Phantoms Fan Forever! (5 stars)
If you loved GHOST OF A PROMISE, do yourself a favor and just buy this book. Chances are you had already started rooting for Kerry and Paul during Jackson and Ava's book and not only is this going to fill that need, it's going to introduce Jackson's replacement. So, so stinking good.
If you're new to the series and your tastes tend to lean more into the urban fantasy shelves because you love a solid paranormal plot you have got to read the Phantoms novels. You could easily start here with GIVE UP THE GHOST and go back if you want some of the small and potentially confusing details cleared up. This is one time that I don't think reading out of order will be a big issue. Paul and Kerry are such a fabulous couple, quite opposite in many ways but their friendship is sweet and I was dying for them to get together. Moran made sure it was one of the most hard won HEA's I think I have ever read. Seriously, everything was against them!
I was pleasantly surprised that Moran managed to pull of geeky Paul without going into ridiculous stereotypes, with nerdy heroes that can be a tough balance. She did wonderfully! Paul's attention to detail definitely translates beyond his historical research job and into the love scenes. If you're not frothing for a nerd of your own after reading them I wanna know!
From start to finish it's a wonderful mix of ghost investigation, team work, and romance. I loved it and I think anyone who enjoys those three elements will too.
