Summary: It’s the roaring twenties, and San Francisco is a hotbed of illegal boozing, raw lust, and black magic. The fog-covered Bay Area can be an intoxicating scene, particularly when you specialize in spirits…
Aida Palmer performs a spirit medium show onstage at Chinatown’s illustrious Gris-Gris speakeasy. However, her ability to summon (and expel) the dead is more than just an act.
Winter Magnusson is a notorious bootlegger who’s more comfortable with guns than ghosts—unfortunately for him, he’s the recent target of a malevolent hex that renders him a magnet for hauntings. After Aida’s supernatural assistance is enlisted to banish the ghosts, her spirit-chilled aura heats up as the charming bootlegger casts a different sort of spell on her...
On the hunt for the curse worker responsible for the hex, Aida and Winter become drunk on passion. And the closer they become, the more they realize they have ghosts of their own to exorcise…
Thanks to Jocelyn for doing a giveaway on Goodreads. I won and got an ARC from her.
My Review: This was actually really good! I usually find adult books very dull and boring. But there was something about that drew me in and had me reading every minute until I finished it. I love that this was set in the 20's. I don't read much that takes place during then, so reading about the alcohol ban and china town was really interesting and cool. And the romance was HOT! I really want there to a book in the series that focuses on Bo and Astrid. They were great, but I would like a book that focuses on them and it'd be better if they got officially together in it!
I would definitely recommend this for the older readers out there and I would rate this 4/5 stars.
There is a sequel coming out on June 3. Look at this cover! I really like these covers!
