1777: In the throes of the Revolutionary War, Landon Mansion is commandeered by British Lord "Butcher" Bedford.
He stabs Lucy Tarleton - who spurned his king and his love - leaving her to die in her father's arms.
NOW: After the day's final tour, docent Allison Leigh makes her rounds while locking up... and finds a colleague slumped over Bedford's desk, impaled on his own replica bayonet.
Resident ghosts may be the stock-in-trade of stately Philadelphia homes, but Allison - a noted historian - is indignant at the prospect of "ghost hunters" investigating this apparent murder.
Agent Tyler Montague knows his hauntings and his history. But while Allison is skeptical of the newcomer, a second mysterious murder occurs.
Has "Butcher" Bedford resurfaced? Or is there another malevolent force at work in Landon Mansion? Wary, yet deeply attracted, Allison has to trust in Tyler and work with him to discover just what uninvited guest — dead or alive — has taken over the house.
Or their lives could become history!
What I thought of this book.
The Uninvited features one of my favorite men from the second branch of Krewe of Hunters, Tyler.
Allison Leigh works at an old Revolutionary War house as a tour guide. She is also writing a paper on the lady who was killed, Lucy Tarleton. She was suppose to have been killed by British Lord “Butcher” Bedford.
Now one of the tour guides has been killed. A young by swears that the “Lord” liked Allison and he has seen him. Then the young boys father is put in a coma and they think that Allison is the only one who can help them.
With strange things like this there is only one thing to do, call in the Krewe of Hunters. Tyler is sent to check things out and see exactly what is going on and if he thinks it’s a good case for the Krewe. If so then the rest of the crew will come and help investigate.
Tyler learns that there have been quite a few deaths in that house over the years and it seems a bit strange to him. Allison at first doesn’t want him around because she thinks what they do is a big joke. Then the ghost of her dead colleague shows up and frightens her. She tries to explain it off but Tyler knows something is going on, especially when he starts to see the young man as well. He doesn’t know what happened to him but he knows someone came up behind him and smashed his head into the bayonet on his rifle that he didn’t want to die.
But who would want to kill people in this house and what does it have to do with Allison. Could it be that she has found something that others don’t want revealed while writing her paper? Or does it go beyond the paper? Tyler and the Krewe of Hunters are determined to get to the bottom of things before Allison becomes the next victim.
Tyler Montague is a sexy, southern man but though he comes from Texas, he is not really a cowboy type. He didn’t start seeing ghost until later in life, so he knows what it’s like to be skeptical. He really feels protective of Allison as soon as he meets her which is unusual for him. Allison is a scholar and has a love of history and even though she tells ghost stories at times on her tours she didn’t believe in them. She is pretty skeptical of Tyler because she knows they are none as some sort of ghostbusting team of FBI agents. After seeing a ghost and seeing how they handle things she started respecting them more and finding herself drawn to Tyler. They make a cute couple!
I really enjoyed this story though I must say I really like about all of the books in this series. They all are very fast listens and I seem to not be able to put them down. 🙂 I might have liked this one a bit more than some others since I liked Tyler. 🙂
Luke Daniels is just awesome. 🙂 I don’t have a sound clip for this since I bought it off of audible.com so I suggest you go there and check out the great narration of Luke Daniels. 🙂
