Someone wants to watch the city burn…

Sienna Murray was only fourteen when she pulled her neighbors out of a raging house fire. A decade later, she still can’t explain what happened that night, how she knew to save them at just the right moment—or why she receives the same mysterious warning when it happens again…

New member of the Krewe of Hunters elite paranormal team FBI agent Ryder Stapleton doesn’t believe in coincidences. So when the suspicious fire he’s called to investigate reveals a cryptic link to Sienna, he can’t help but think the unassuming museum curator has something to hide. But he soon discovers they have more in common than he ever thought—and a growing attraction neither can deny.

If they're going to have a future, Sienna and Ryder need to catch a serial arsonist roaming the shadowy streets of New Orleans…before the city burns down around them.

While The Unknown is the thirty-fifth novel in the Krewe of Hunters paranormal, romantic suspense series each contains a mystery and romance.

Sienna Murray, at fourteen, saved a child and her mother from a house fire at her Granny K’s urgings. She didn’t know it at the time, but her Granny was no longer among the living. Since then, Granny has been her guardian angel and traveled with her to New Orleans, where Sienna manages everything from the daily operations to the publicity for a Wax Museum and Animal sanctuary.

When her Granny awakens her in the middle of the night to get her neighbors out of their home because of a gas leak, she doesn’t hesitate. However, it puts her on Agent Ryder Stapleton’s list of possible suspects. She is hiding something from him. Ryder sees ghosts, so it doesn’t take long before he figures out Sienna had some otherworldly help.

When Sienna is almost assaulted during a break in at the museum, Ryder begins to suspect the unsolved blaze and the gas explosion are linked.

I enjoyed this more than the Forbidden and was glad to see Agent Finn again. Ryder is a good detective and will be a valued asset to the Krewe. He knows everything is linked. He just needs to figure out the how. I enjoyed the case and cast of suspects.

Sienna and Ryder had a haters’ to lovers’ romance. He annoyed her, but mostly because she didn’t want to be accused of these heinous acts, all because she could communicate with Granny K. The chemistry was there and built from attraction to something more.

Granny K was a hoot, and we met other ghosts in NOLA who helped with the case. I easily slipped in and once I found the time, I quickly devoured the story.

Fans of mysterious in various locations with some local history weaved in will enjoy these paranormal romantic suspense tales. I’ve read all of them and will continue to do so as they are comfort reads.

    This one sounds like such a comfort read, so happy that you seemed to like this one for the most part. I haven’t read this authors non historicals, so I should change that. Any recommendations where to start?

    I just finished The Stalking (which was 6 books before this I think) and really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to catching up on this series. They’re such fun!
