when you got it, you got it.

When a series gets to it's thirteenth book, the author must be doing something right. Haven by Kay Hooper is the latest edition in the bestselling Bishop/SCU series which came out in July. This installment was another crowd pleaser if you ask me, and everyone else in the world.

For those of you who don't know, Jessie Rayburn works for Haven, a privately owned company that is associated with Bishop's FBI division. Noah Bishop and his group use their powers such as clairvoyance, empathy and medium to solve crimes. Every member of this team has some sort of special power. In this novel, Jessie has chosen to go back home to finally put her past to rest. She left Baron Hallow fifteen years earlier after a traumatic event which she can't quite remember.  Meanwhile, her younger sister Emma, who stayed in their hometown and now runs a B & B in their childhood home has been having nightmares of women being brutally murdered. The two sisters have not seen each other in fifteen years, and Hooper lets readers feel the uneasiness of their reunion. To help uncover more of the mystery, Nathan Navarro, another Haven operative whose specialty is locating dead people, is thrown into the mix. Hooper keeps us on our toes for the duration.
