Aida Palmer is a spirit medium working in San Francisco during the late 1920's. A fiercely independent woman who is really embracing herself and making her own way. She was orphaned young by a tragic fire and moved across the country to an adoptive family. When she was a young girl, after the fire, she realized that she could communicate with spirits. And her life has never been the same since. She's taken the mantra of live day to day and really made that her life. Working at speakeasies and clubs who will hire her, she's working on making her way.
Winter Magnusson is a second generation bootlegger and fisherman who has been recently targeted by an unknown enemy. A curse placed on him caused him to be poisoned and his sight has been opened so that now he can see ghosts. Needing assistance from the manager of the speakeasy that Aida works at, Winter causes quite the scene. Attraction between Aida and Winter bloomed quick, working together to get rid of the ghosts and find out who's causing Winter so much trouble, attraction turns to a fiery passion to something even more. Although both parties have been burned, in different ways in the past, they must work through a dark and haunting time to find a life that they had never dreamed.
I loved this book. Aida and Winter had me enthralled from the beginning. Aida is definitely a woman of the times. She's smart, quick witted, funny, and always speaks her mind. She knows what she wants and she stands by her beliefs. Winter is the perfect tortured hero. He's a good man who has had some rough things happen in his past that he has a lot of guilt over. But he's a shrewd businessman, funny, sly, and downright charming. Seeing these two come together was a joy and honestly a lot of fun. I loved their banter and there was just enough heartbreak and sweetness and temper to make it real to me.
These two were placed together under supernatural, malevolent circumstances and watching things progress between them so naturally was fantastic. I absolutely adore Jenn Bennett, her books never fail to bring you in emotionally. This book was no different. It's so interesting, we have mystery, the supernatural, humor, a connection of epic proportions, and some hot, hot sex. If you aren't reading this book or this author, you're missing out. I can only see things growing from here and you definitely want to be along for the ride.
