Review – Something Wicked by Angela Campbell

something wickedSomething Wicked caught my eye as soon as I realized it was a paranormal novel based in Charleston, SC.  I am so glad that I clicked that “Request” button!

Alexandra King is a psychic medium who visits Charleston to track down the estranged brother of her boss.  She soon learns that all of the ghosts in this historic town can quickly overwhelm her defenses and there are strong spirits that want her out of the way.

This was a fun book that was easy to read.  Alexandra is a fairly strong heroine and I especially appreciated that she wasn’t a doormat to gain the affection of our hero, Dylan.  While he is an alpha male, he doesn’t overdo it with the “she’s mine” mentality that can be frustrating in some PNR.

There are no big surprises here – girl meets boy, they fall into bed together, conflict ensues, etc., etc., etc.  But, sometimes it’s okay to be a little predictable.  The author kept it interesting with the banter and flirtation between the main characters  and the supporting cast (specifically the Charleston ghosts) was also very entertaining.  It wasn’t too dark, was steamy but not raunchy and had a good amount of action.  Charleston was a great back-drop to the story and it was nice to see restaurants and other locations mentioned that we all know and love.

I would recommend this for anyone looking for a good paranormal romance with a little mystery.  4/5 stars.

Thank you to the publisher for providing an E-ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
