Isabel Stone’s life is far from normal. She’s a girl with problems—vampire problems to be specific and, now, she also has one ticked-off specter on her hands. Approached by a childhood friend and medium, Isabel agrees to look into the murder of a local girl, only to wind up inhabited by the solitary witness—a centuries-old ghost who is all too happy to piggyback along in Isabel’s body, and she’s not leaving until the culprit is behind bars.
With the help of her partner, Shane, and her crazy family, Isabel struggles to get to the truth, unmask a killer, and deal with her growing feelings for not one, but two, of the sexy, undead men vying for her heart. Just when things are finally falling into place, a huge revelation takes her out of the frying pan… and straight into the fire.
I didn't think it was possible for Isabel to be any more badass. I was wrong. I'll admit that the whole ghost haunting intrigued me and I really enjoyed reading that particular section of the book. There's some drama there, and you'll want to read it!
My views on Shane have changed due to this book, and I no longer think of him as a pathetic loser. I'm officially #TeamShane now, and I still picture Xavier as a creepy, wrinkly old man despite the author's description of him. I have no idea why, but that is the way I picture him and that image will remain burned in my mind for the rest of this series.
Xavier is the character I LOVE to HATE. From the beginning I suspected there was stuff he was hiding and turns out I wasn't wrong. I can't say anymore than that, but my hate for him has been cemented with this second book.
A lot of stuff happens with Isabel and Shane in this book and we see Isabel still holds some feeling for Shane, although she tries to deny it to herself. I don't know what will happen in the future between them, but I will be rooting for them! I can't wait for the next installment! Too bad I have to wait a whole year...
The writing flowed well and was so engaging I stayed up an entire night to finish the book. This is a series I definitely recommend to anyone who likes a butt-kicking heroine.
Chasing Midnight gets 5/5 Platypires!
