Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gerritsen steps away from her popular detective procedurals with this stand-alone romantic-suspense title, this time adding a paranormal touch. Food writer Ava escapes to a vacation home on a remote Maine peninsula, ostensibly to find the peace and solitude she needs to finish her latest cookbook. But she's also escaping trouble in her recent past, which pales in comparison to the events that unfold when she arrives at the house, which is haunted by the ghost of a sea captain. The coastal town holds secrets, and so does Ava, and the supernatural presence is determined to bring them all to light. A quick read that will appeal to fans of the genre.--Rebecca Vnuk Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This supernatural thriller from bestseller Gerritsen (the Rizzoli and Isles series) ranks with the best of her crime fiction. Boston food writer Ava Colette travels to Tucker Cove, Maine, where she rents Brodie's Watch, an old house on the coast once owned by a 19th-century sea captain, Jeremiah Brodie. Ava's goal is to finish writing her latest cookbook there, but she's also trying to escape a tragic past. Soon her nights are interrupted by visions of Jeremiah's ghost, who appears to be as real as if he were a flesh and blood man. Meanwhile, she begins to wonder about a series of mysterious if apparently natural deaths in the town--and why the last renter left the house so abruptly. After learning more about the house's history and its previous inhabitants, she consults a ghost hunter, whose team discovers some disturbing things about paranormal presences at Brodie's Watch. The stakes rise when Ava figures out that a killer is on the loose who must be stopped. This magnetic haunted house story will keep readers riveted from the very first page.
