Sloane had it all; a job she loved, a great best friend, and she was going to marry the man of her dreams, then, in the blink of an eye, everything was shattered. A car crash took her fiancé, Michael, from her and she didn't think she could go on. Now, as a paranormal real estate agent, she has been searching haunted houses for a year, looking to make contact with Michael. She's in a small town in the middle of nowhere, the last place she would expect to find him, but find him she does, and not only him but a house full of ghosts. These ghosts are in pain, the last moments of their lives were horrific and they are forced to relive them over and over again in this house. Sloane is determined to set them free, but the only problem is she has no idea how to do that.
First Contact is the well written and well developed story of a young woman who has a sensitivity to the spirit world and can sense their presence. At the same time, it is a mystery story of a serial killer who has escaped notice for years and Sloane's desire to bring him to justice. Author Kat Green has written a book that will keep you glued to the story until the last page. First Contact is the first book in a series called Haunts for Sale. Sloane is a paranormal real estate agent, which means she can sense the presence of spirits in a house and whether they are kind or malevolent, because there is a whole market for people wanting to buy haunted houses these days. Most of her work is with gentle spirits just hanging out where they have always been, but not this job. Sloane walks into something she has no clue about. This is a page turner, but there are some elements with the whole serial killer angle that might offend a few readers, so I would recommend it only to adult readers.
