Sleepy Hollow isn't so sleepy anymore?

One night, New York FBI agent Aiden Mahoney receives a visitor in a dream, an old friend named Richard Highsmith. The very next day he's sent to Sleepy Hollow because Richard's gone missing there.

Maureen "Mo" Deauville now lives in the historic town and works with her dog, Rollo, to search for missing people. She's actually the one to find Richard, or more precisely his head, stuck on a statue of the legendary Headless Horseman.

Mo and Aiden, a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI's unit of paranormal investigators, explore both past and present events to figure out who betrayed Richard, who killed him and now wants to kill them, too. As they work together, they discover that they share an unusual trait the ability to communicate with the dead. They also share an attraction that's as intense as it is unexpected if they live long enough to enjoy it!

Review: This is book 14 in the Krewe series, as with the others I've read it can be read as a stand alone, but I feel once you start reading these books you'll want to read them all. Ms Graham does a wonderful job of mixing history and the paranormal.
Maureen "Mo" Deauville and her dog Rollo are called out to help look for missing Highsmith. Using her ability to communicate with the dead, she finds his head on a statue of The Headless Horseman. Aiden and members of the Krewe arrive to find out exactly what happened to Highsmith. As the case progresses Aiden and Mo have to fight their growing attraction, even though they have great chemistry. I enjoyed their interaction with each other and the other Krewe members.
The plot kept me engaged and interested, the twist and turns the book took kept me on my toes wondering what was going to happen next.
As with her other books in this series I think Ms Graham did a great job blancing mystery and romance.
