Emerging from the bayou like an apparition, Donegal Plantation is known for its unsurpassed dining, captivating atmosphere, haunting legends…and now a corpse swinging from the marble angel that marks its cemetery’s most majestic vault. A corpse discovered in nearly the same situation as that of Marshall Donegal, the patriarch killed in a skirmish just before the Civil War.
Desperate for help traditional criminologists could never provide, plantation heiress Ashley Donegal turns to an elite team of paranormal investigators who blend hard forensics with rare—often inexplicable—intuition. Among the “Krewe of Hunters” is an old flame, Jake Mallory, a gifted musician with talent stretching far beyond the realm of the physical, and a few dark ghosts of his own.
The evil the team unveils has the power to shake the plantation to its very core. Jake and Ashley are forced to risk everything to unravel secrets that will not stay buried—even in death…

A short review to update challenges
I was able to get Phantom Evil, the first book of this Krewe Of Hunters series from the Audible Romance package. Heart of Evil was available with audio through Kindle Unlimited. Both are set in New Orleans. The first set up the world, this special FBI team and had the romance of the team leader, Jackson and Angela.
Heart of Evil is full of civil war reenactment action, an old plantation tourist site and of course, new murders to solve. One of the team members Jake is from New Orleans and practically grew up with the granddaughter, Ashley who runs the old plantation with her grandfather, and staff. So we also have a second chance romance for Jake and Ashley.
I always enjoy the mix of mystery with romance for the layers of plot. Here we also have some woo-woo paranormal aspects usually blended with historical mysteries, deaths and / or ghosts. We get the point of view primarily from the Jake and Ashley.
Last but not least, at this point Luke Daniels took over the narration. He is one reason I chose to start this series. I am able to listen at 1.5x speed. He’s a master and handles the voices of males, females and the various accents believably.
