SUMMARY: There’s always been something a bit off about Perry Palomino. Though she’s been dealing with a quarter-life crisis and post-college syndrome like any other twentysomething, she’s still not what you would call “ordinary.”
For one thing, there’s her past which she likes to pretend never happened, and then there’s the fact that she sees ghosts. Luckily for her, that all comes in handy when she stumbles across Dex Foray, an eccentric producer for an upcoming webcast on ghost hunters. Even though the show’s budget is non-existent and Dex himself is a maddening enigma, Perry is instantly drawn into a world that both threatens her life and seduces her with a sense of importance. Her uncle’s haunted lighthouse provides the perfect catalyst and backdrop for a horrific mystery that unravels the threads of Perry’s fragile sanity and causes her to fall for a man, who, like the most dangerous of ghosts, may not be all that he seems. 

 

MY THOUGHTS:
This is Karina Halle’s debut novel (the 1st in the Experiment in Terror Series) and I am hooked!! Initially it was slow reading for me as the plot developed and thickened but it picked up speed and I didn’t want it to stop. Karina has a very unique writing style, her descriptions are vivid and intellectual. 
You can definite relate to the main character- Perry, especially her insecurities and fears. The the dynamic between Perry and Dex is very real, so much so that you just want to yell at them sometimes due to the attraction and sexual tension between them. They have a unique relationship that you *think* you know just where it will end up…
The “ghost hunter” aspect of this is very interesting to me because I have always been intrigued by this topic. Karina writes about it in a horrifying but realistic page turning way! I would definitely recommend this book and can’t wait to read the next installment in the Experiment in Terror Series.
