MYSTERY, MURDER, and MANOLO BLAHNIK....
A devoted fashionata and practical New Yorker, Skylar Blackwell doesn’t believe in the supernatural—until she inherits Summerwind Mansion. . . .
When her uncle is brutally murdered, and the cops seem uninterested in following up the case, Skylar journeys to California to seek answers. Her search for clues is soon overshadowed by haunting nightmares of a young woman also murdered in the house.
Now the inhabitants of Summerwind are mysteriously dying, leaving no evidence as to how or why, and Skylar finds herself in a deadly race against time to expose the killer—before they strike again.
Armed with only wit and Pradas, Skylar begins questioning the servants, but the growing list of suspects includes the sexy and brooding caretaker, Dorian Delacroix, a man desperately trying to forget his tragic past. And a major distraction for Skylar.
Determined to play detective—instead of the fashion police—and unravel the dark history of the mansion, Skylar is plunged into an otherworldly mystery that not even she can explain away. As the boundaries between reality and dreams blur, Skylar’s greatest challenge is to stay alive long enough to learn the truth.

Review: Immortal Eclipse is a a great mix of paranormal and mystery. Skylar is a wreck in the beginning of the book. She recently lost her uncle, and loses her job. In an effort to shake her bad mojo, she visits California to put her uncles affairs in order, possibly do some therapeutic shopping and find out who killed her uncle.  Summerwind is a spectacular mansion, but has a lot of skeletons in it's many closets.
Despite numerous warnings, from the staff and other folks Skylar stays determined to get to the bottom of her uncles death and the ghostly going ons at Summerwind.
Skylar is a good heroine, she spunky, strong, and tenacious. The hunky caretaker, Dorian, is more than he appears being a delectable distraction for Skyar. There are a host of other colorful secondary characters. The plot pulled me in with it's twists and turns, all the supernatural stuff. I felt there was a good balance to the story, keeping me interested in what was happening with Skyar, the murders and even the romance aspect. But there is a doozy of a twist at the end, over all a very good book.
