Ghost Hunter is a fun paranormal romance set on another world with humans who had originally come from Earth. Jayne Castle is the pseudonym that Jayne Ann Krentz uses when writing her futuristic, science fiction romances. There is an interesting mystery to keep the book going, but the novel is really about the romance. I didn’t try to solve the mystery. I just kept with the fun and romance of the story.
Ghost Hunter is a fun book that’s great for an afternoon on the beach or other escape. Elly is a modern day woman who is fairly self confident in herself and very confident in her abilities. Cooper is the librarian ghost hunter who is tall, dark, handsome, and more than he seems.
This book also includes a wonderful quote from Cooper Boone, dreamy librarian turned Guild Boss. “It never ceases to amaze me how people are inclined to underestimate folks who work with books and manuscripts.” Amen!
