Simple Description

This is the last in the Flynn Brother's trilogy which means Zach is the brother who does the majority of the investigating. Sean O'Riley is off to Ireland on his honeymoon. He married a woman who is much younger than he is, and whom nobody really likes. Not long after Sean arrives in Ireland he is taken to the hospital because he is so sick. Caer is assigned to look after him. Sean is soon well enough to return to Rhode Island and he employs Caer to come with him as his nurse. On the day Sean left for Ireland, his business partner and friend, Eddie disappeared and is believed dead. Zach was called in to investigate Eddie's disappearance and Sean's illness. Sean's daughter, Kat, insists that Amanda (the new wife) had something to do with it. Zach doesn't think Amanda is intelligent enough to do it. Soon it becomes apparent that the killer is somebody the family knows. Zach must figure out who it is and what they are after before Sean, or anybody else, is murdered.

Why did I read this book?

I enjoy Heather Graham's books. I've read the first 2 in the Flynn Brothers trilogy and was looking forward to this one.

What I liked most:

I like that with this one, the paranormal aspect was so different from the other ones. It has to do with the Irish legend of the Banshee. In fact, that made it different from most other paranormal books I've read.

Was there something I didn't like?

Not really.

Do I recommend the book?

I do! While I think you can read the trilogy out of order, I do think it's best to read it in order. I love the Flynn Brothers, so it was fun that all three were in this book again. I do wish there would be more with these brothers in them though, I think she could have a fun series with them.

Have you reviewed this book on your blog? Leave me a comment to let me know and I'll link it below.

Happy Reading and thanks for stopping by……Kris

This sounds like a terrific trilogy I like the Irish connection! Thanks.

Beth - I liked the Irish connection in the last one too, I think that's one reason I liked it so much. I really enjoyed this series.

Ooh, I might put this on my list. Do you remember what the paranormal aspect was from the first two? The banshee isn't a creature that makes it into the paranormals that I read very often (though I think Kim Harrison used one in a short story before).

Ladytink - You should put this on your list, the series was really good.

The first book - the paranormal aspect was ghosts, in the second it was an old legand that seemed to come to life, I think it was something about the harvest moon or something like that. I can see it in my mind but I can't think of the name.
