Soul Scavengers: Wounded Rose - L. J. Winters

Sullivan and Olivia are now joined at the hip for better or for worse and the Soul Scavengers team are called to a mysterious mansion in rural Illinois where they get a little more than they bargained for as they attempt to shed some light on the mansion’s dark history in this riveting urban fantasy.

 

Sullivan’s deeply ingrained inability to make a commitment is causing quite a bit of friction and emotional turmoil between him and Olivia and the readers can’t help but get caught up in their rocky relationship as Olivia is driven almost to her breaking point, especially once their fellow investigators Kelly and Hudson start torturing their cranky colleague but none of that brings the sizzling and undeniable attraction between them to a halt, it just makes for some interesting events some of which adds some chuckles. The strong captivating duo is now joined by more engaging characters that grab the reader’s attention and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot draws readers in with suspense, turmoil, excitement and romance.

 

Most of the spine chilling excitement comes from some spooky interactions with the spirits of the mansion that the team is investigating because this is one investigation that takes quite the deadly turn with some unexpected surprises keeping the team on their toes, but that’s not all the excitement this story has to offer as some personal and family surprises adds spice to the story as well.

 

Sullivan and Olivia’s romance is balanced on a cliff’s edge and I’m not sure just where it’s going to land as Sullivan and Olivia both kind of keeping getting in their own way not to mention the team and the ghosts manage to cause quite a bit of trouble for the couple as well. As for the series I have to say that it is more like a serial, at least regarding the romance part of the story and this one ended on a quite a cliffhanger so I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
