The Cursed by Heather Graham (Krewe of Hunters, #12)
A haunted house in Key West
Hannah O'Brien, who grew up in the house and now runs it as a B and B, has always had a special ability to see a pair of resident ghosts. But when a man is murdered in the alley behind her place, she's dismayed when his spirit appears, too, asking for help.
FBI agent Dallas Samson has a passionate interest in the murder, since the victim's a colleague whose death is connected to the smuggling ring known as Los Lobos—the wolves. Now Dallas is even more committed to chasing them down….
Unaware that Dallas has certain abilities of his own, Hannah calls her cousin Kelsey O'Brien, a member of the FBI's Krewe of Hunters, an elite unit of paranormal investigators. The present-day case is linked to a historical mystery involving salvagers, a curse and a sunken ship. Danger and desire bring Hannah and Dallas together, but to survive, they have to solve the mysteries of the past—and stay alive long enough to solve the crimes of the present!

My Review:The Cursed by Heather Graham
The Cursed I think is one of my favorite stories from Heather Graham. It has the suspense, drama, just 2 Krewe members and way heavy on the ghosts, plus humor. It does have a sex scene that I skipped over.
The plot a couple staying at the Bed & breakfast who went on ghost tour that night while staying by the pool see a ghost with bloody knife start screaming. That morning Hannah finds a dead guy just like the ghost described by her guests. After cops leave she encounters the ghost and he asks for help. She calls her cousin who is Kelsey a Krewe member to help.
Hannah has two ghosts that live with her. She sees spirits really well and can talk to them with no problem. The house has been in her family for generations.
Dallas Samson is the FBI Agent in charge of case. He has talents with ghosts too. He knew the victim and wants to find his killer badly. He decides to stay at the bed & breakfast in case the murder comes back.
Kelsey O'Brien is a FBI Agent. She and her husband are members of Krewe. She used to be a U.S. Marshall before joining the FBI.
She is also Hannah's cousin.
The setting is Key West, Florida.
The pace is fast and good. I did figure out who the Wolf was before revealed. But not to far before.
I was going to introduce all the ghosts but that would take some of the fun out of the story.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
