Book Blurb:
When Sadie and her sexy partner Zack stumble on evidence of a chilling cult ritual in an abandoned meth lab, Sadie comes face to face with an evil spirit unlike any she's ever seen before. And it's no coincidence that a bundle of stolen cash turns up at her next crime scene just in time to convince a biker gang that Sadie made off with their money. She knows the threads are connected-but how?

My thoughts:
While covering jobs for a friend’s business, Sadie Novak and her crew are taking on nearly twice their normal workload. David Egan’s meth lab clean-ups are wearing thin on Sadie, and at the most recent scene she finds herself confronted by her first truly bad spirit. Into some dark cult activity in life, the spirit has only gotten worse in death, and Sadie is about to find out just how deep Penny’s dark connections went.

Former cop, and current employee, Zach is growing more concerned for Sadie’s safety. There’s a group of bikers who believe she’s taken something that belongs to them, and they’re quite serious about getting it back. Add to that the cult that has a less than pleasant agenda where Sadie and her family are concerned, and Zach has his hands full trying to fit the pieces together before time runs out.

This is the second installment in the Ghost Duster Mysteries. Sadie’s ability for talking with ghosts has helped those who were ready to let go of the living and move on. Now her ability has put her life in danger and left Sadie to wonder who in her life can be trusted. Ms. Roberts pens a fast-moving paranormal mystery that will keep readers rapt attention every step of the way. The characters are well-defined, the action is plentiful and the storyline is believable. I’d happily recommend Devil May Ride to anyone who enjoys an intriguing mystery with a strong paranormal element and a nice touch of romance.

You have to get a copy Rachael, you'll love this one just as much as the first. :)

This book sounds quite scary - I could never read it at night *g* Ghost Dusters?

Kimberly Swan said...

Probably the scary part is how clueless most of us are about what might actually be out there going bump in the night. :) Yes, Ghost Duster Mysteries. Cute name, right? *grin*
