After Dark by Jayne Castle

After Dark (Ghost Hunters bk 1)
Jayne Castle
Rating 3.5

A race of aliens once lived on the future Earth colony called Harmony, leaving behind them the ruins of a vast, beautiful, and mysterious culture that is still protected by the psychic illusion traps and eerie ghosts that they created. Lydia Smith is an archaeologist who can resonate and dissolve the illusions, and those talents, combined with her lack of finances and questionable professional reputation, make her the obvious hire for Emmett London, who is trying to track down a lost antique and the nephew who stole it. Lydia’s first consulting job quickly turns dangerous, however, as corpses, ghosts, and illusion traps start popping up–not to mention the rather unprofessional electricity between her and her first client.

REVIEW: Judith Ann Krantz writing as Jayne Castle, I thought for sure that I am going to love this book as I normally like anything that she writes. I have to be honest and say that for me this was an okay book. I loved the chemistry between Lydia and Emmett, and the mystery that they were solving. The thing that I didn’t like was the whole alien thing. I normally really enjoy a good paranormal, and growing up watching Star Trek and being Stargate fans you would think that I would like the alien portion of this but I have to say I didn’t. It’s a good story and I have several other books from this series sitting in my TBR pile and will read them.
