"Great paranormal romantic suspense"
Needing to escape the shadow people that haunt her in
Colorado Springs, Micky Gunn travels to the Gunn Inn that
she recently inherited from her late uncle Carl. In Pine
Forest, Micky enters Poppa Joe's UFO Diner expecting alien
eyeballs as a delicacy. As she admires a handsome hunk, a
crazed patron points a gun at her but the intercession of
the stud saves Micky's life.
Denver cop Jared Thornton is in town to learn who killed
his Aunt Edith Pickles though he is outside his
jurisdiction. Micky is thankful that he saved her life,
but resents his take-charge attitude with the local
police. When he learns she will be alone at Gunn Inn, he
becomes concerned because he feels the same attraction
that pulls her. The shadow people still stalk Mickey and
a vampiric serial killer is on the prowl. Jared and Micky
team up to stay alive and learn what is going on in this
small Colorado community as Halloween approaches and
another creature waits.
NIGHT WATCH is a terse paranormal romantic suspense that
grips the audience the moment Micky enters the diner. The
action-packed story line builds up tension on two levels;
the deadly weirdness percolates as danger mounts and the
love between the protagonists evolves during the taut
plot. Micky and Jared are a delightful pairing of two
people caught in a maelstrom of paranormal creepiness.
Fans will enjoy this tremendous cleverly, designed tale;
enabling a reader to appreciate this book as a stand-alone
or peruse the first novel (see DARK FIRE) to enhance
understanding of subplots not critical to NIGHT WATCH'S
prime story, but move forward the overall arching
