Book Blurb:
When a young woman is found dead in a field, dressed up as a scarecrow with a slashed grin and a broken neck, the residents of Salem, Massachusetts, begin to fear that the infamous Harvest Man is more than just a rumor. But out-of-town cop Jeremy Flynn doesn't have time for ghost stories. He's in town on another investigation, looking for a friend's wife, who mysteriously vanished in a cemetery.

Complicating his efforts is local occult expert Rowenna Cavanaugh, who launches her own investigation, convinced that a horror from the past has crept into the present and is seducing women to their deaths. Jeremy uses logic and solid police work. Rowenna depends on intuition. But they both have the same goal: to stop the abductions and locate the missing women before Rowenna herself falls prey to the Harvest Man's dark seduction.

My thoughts:
Jeremy Flynn is a retired police diver currently working as an investigator along with his brothers. When Jeremy receives a call that his former diving partner’s wife went missing on a trip to Salem, he hops the next flight out of New Orleans to join in the search.

Rowenna Cavanaugh got to know Jeremy while they participated in a debate on talk radio, and she got the distinct impression that he had no interest in her. Returning home to Salem, Rowenna emerges herself in the investigation for Jeremy’s friend, and finds herself researching the chilling legend of the Harvest Man.

This is the second story in the Flynn Brothers Trilogy, and tells Jeremy’s story. Ms. Graham builds this dark paranormal to a cleverly executed climax. Readers will find themselves considering nearly every possible suspect, and in the end they’ll be surprised by how well this mystery plays out. Deadly Harvest will easily entertain mystery and paranormal romance fans alike. While part of a trilogy, this book can be read as a stand-alone.

You should love every book in this trilogy Rachael! Lots of mystery going on, and a steamy paranormal romance. :)
