Title: Ghost Notes
Author: Beth Henderson
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Jace Hastings' star was rising in the music community when things went to hell, courtesy of a stalker with deadly designs. It's been ten years and, considering Hastings is presumed dead in a vehicle collision, P.I. Gaelen Wyndom can't believe someone wants her to find him. It's Mission Impossible.
Pelham Flannery rejoined the world in the intensive care unit, fully aware that someone had tried to kill him. To live, he went under the radar. Did everything he could to distance himself from his profession, disguising every element that would give his identity as Jace Hastings away. He gave up the only thing he'd cared about: music. Pel thought after a decade it was safe to come out of hiding. He was wrong.
Gaelen's life bloomed anew when she married Luke Wyndom. Her going nowhere career as a vocalist vanished as her husband trained her to be a professional investigator, a career choice that tantalized and thrilled her. Then Luke was killed on a case though she continued on. Alone. Being assigned to locate Jace Hastings is a hinky assignment, particularly because she isn't told who the client is. But she's a good P.I. and puzzles out who wants to find Jace Hastings.
If she's right, it's the man who tried to kill him once already. Which means she needs to find Jace Hastings and save him.
A rising music star dies in a car accident or is he alive and in hiding from a killer on the loose? Ten years ago, musician Jace Hastings died in a horrific accident. If that’s true, why is someone paying PI Gaelen to track Jace down? She doesn’t know who is footing the bill, but she wonders if it’s the same person who killed or attempted to kill Jace the first time around. Time is running out, but she’ll stop at nothing to find and save Jace before it’s too late.
Ghost Notes is an emotional romantic suspense I couldn’t stop reading. This book reads like a symphony with dramatic interludes and sweeping intrigue. From the fast-moving pacing to the full cast of characters, Ghost Notes will captivate all of your senses. The descriptive narration has a musical quality which adds an unusual depth to the overall story. As the book unfolds, I found myself questioning what was really going on. Beth Henderson is a masterful writer who takes this plot into avenues I didn’t expect. I love when an author does the unexpected. Well-written suspense with a few red herrings, Ghost Notes is a book you need to read. I’ve finished reading it and I can’t wait to read it again. Highly recommend!
