In The Air Tonight, Lori Handeland 
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance
This was a fun read. The prologue stars with an evil scene, where two witches are burned at the stake, and at first its hard to see the relevance to the main story. Then as things move forward it all becomes clear. Its a fun read, with some plots being easy to spot and others…well, I was left guessing until the action heated up and it was in front of me.
Its got some great characters, and there’s an air of realism throughout even though we’re dealing with  supernatural elements. the story unfolds naturally and I loved the chemistry between Raye and Bobby. I really felt for Raye, she was a square peg in a round hole of a small town where everyone knew everything, except her history as an adopted child. That, and her penchant for seeing and talking to ghosts, made her an outsider even though she’s grown up there. It wasn’t that she was an outcast exactly, just that everyone seemed to feel she was  that bit too different to really fit in however hard she tries. Then she starts to get close to Bobby, but how can she tell him about herself, tell him things he needs to know both professionally and personally, when he’s so adamant all so called witches and ghost communicators are outright charlatans. She won’t risk what they have, and yet the time is fast coming when she has to reveal all and hope he can deal with what she is.
Its a great story, paced just right for me, where plots unfold naturally, relationships develop and surprises pop out unexpectedly. there’s a great blend of reality and supernatural that feels right, not forced and the plots are only too realistic given what we’ve done historically over anyone a little outside the norm. I’d be happy to read more and look forward to the next book. Though the books are linked by plot there’s no cliff-hanger, and this one is complete.
Stars: Five, Surprised me just how much I enjoyed it. I thought I’d like it, but didn’t expect to get quite so caught up in a vivid and ramatic race against the supernatural.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
