Review - Deadly Gift by Heather Graham

Deadly Gift
The Flynn Brothers Trilogy, Book 3

ISBN# 978-0-7783-2527-7

Book blurb:
Caer is spending this Christmas among strangers. Brought to Newport, Rhode Island, from her native Ireland to nurse ailing millionaire Sean O'Riley, she's living a life few can imagine. But money can't hide the tension between O'Riley's trophy wife, his paranoid daughter, the eccentric aunt in the attic and the staff members who run the house.

When O'Riley's business partner goes missing, family friend Zach Flynn arrives. Determined to help him solve the case, Caer becomes enmeshed in a mystery that weaves together the sins of the past with one family's destiny…and a spirit that watches the mansion, possessing a deadly gift.

My thoughts:
A much needed vacation brings Sean O’Riley and his wife Amanda to Ireland just before the Christmas holidays. Their trip is cut short when Sean lands in the hospital and they return to the states with Caer, a private nurse that the hospital has offered to assign. Back home in Rhode Island, Sean’s friend and business partner Eddie has mysteriously disappeared. They’ve called in the police and a close friend of the family, Zach Flynn, to continue the search.

Someone is trying to kill Sean O’Riley and Zach plans to stop the killer in their tracks. While he doesn’t trust Caer completely, he does trust her with Sean’s health. As things heat up with more death and accusations, Zach finds himself drawn to Caer. While his life may be in danger along with the O’Rileys, it’s losing his heart to the enigmatic Caer that really has him worried.

This is the third book in The Flynn Brothers Trilogy and is Zach’s story. Ms. Graham pens a well-executed murder mystery with intriguing paranormal elements and the sweet touch of romance. Easily read as a stand-alone story, Deadly Gift will entertain readers and keep them guessing until the surprising end.

I was able to read the first one and this one, and really enjoyed both. You'll love the mystery in them. :)

I only just read my first Heather Graham book on the weekend! I don't know how I didn't come across her before!

Wow, I'm surprised you just found her Amber! I read this trilogy out of order, but they're written so that it's easy to do. I now have Deadly Harvest (which was the second in the trilogy) and will have a review up soon.

Thanks Samantha! I'll be reviewing Deadly Harvest (the second book in the trilogy) sometime this week. They're written very well as stand-alone stories, but I'm really looking forward to going back and reading this one. :)
