1777: In the throes of the Revolutionary War, Landon Mansion is commandeered by British Lord "Butcher" Bedford. He stabs Lucy Tarleton--who spurned his king and his love--leaving her to die in her father's arms. NOW: After the day's final tour, docent Allison Leigh makes her rounds while locking up...and finds a colleague slumped over Bedford's desk, impaled on his own replica bayonet. Resident ghosts may be the stock-in-trade of stately Philadelphia homes, but Allison--a noted historian--is indignant at the prospect of "ghost hunters" investigating this apparent murder. Agent Tyler Montague knows his hauntings and his history. But while Allison is skeptical of the newcomer, a second mysterious murder occurs. Has "Butcher" Bedford resurfaced? Or is there another malevolent force at work in Landon Mansion? Wary, yet deeply attracted, Allison has to trust in Tyler and work with him to discover just what uninvited guest--dead or alive--has taken over the house. Or their lives could become history!… (mais)

The liberties taken with history I’m okay with. The liberties taken with the description of Old City Philadelphia I am NOT. ( )

What's It About?
1777: In the throes of the Revolutionary War, Landon Mansion is commandeered by British Lord "Butcher" Bedford. He stabs Lucy Tarleton—who spurned his king and his love—leaving her to die in her father's arms.

NOW: After the day's final tour, docent Allison Leigh makes her rounds while locking up…and finds a colleague slumped over Bedford's desk, impaled on his own replica bayonet. Resident ghosts may be the stock-in-trade of stately Philadelphia homes, but Allison—a noted historian—is indignant at the prospect of "ghost hunters" investigating this apparent murder.

Agent Tyler Montague knows his haunting and his history. While Allison is skeptical of the newcomer, a second mysterious murder occurs. Has "Butcher" Bedford resurfaced...or is there another malevolent force at work in Landon Mansion? Wary...yet deeply attracted... Allison has to trust in Tyler and work with him to discover just what uninvited guest...dead or alive...has taken over the house...or their lives could become history!

What Did I Think?
I couldn't say anything bad about this series if I tried. It was a reread for me and I enjoyed it as much the second...or was it the third? time round as I did the first. Love ghost stories and this entire series is ghostly. The people that compose the Krewe of Hunters have unique gifts that appeal to the sense of the supernatural. There is usually a little history before the "NOW" part... and the history of Philadelphia and the Revolutionary War that was woven into the story was as fascinating as the ghost itself. This series will appeal to those that love history, romance, mystery, suspense, and of course the main dish...a excellent ghost story. ( )

I didn't like this one as well as the others in the series. I think it was just me. A lot of history in this one, which I liked and it was related to the story line. ( )

This story surrounds the Tarleton-Dandridge House in Philadelphia where in 1777 Patriot Lucy Tarleton was killed by her British lover, Lord Bedford. At least that's what history tells us. In present day Allison Leigh a docent of the house is about to encounter death, murder, ghosts and one seriously hunky Agent Tyler Montague.

The Uninvited was an excellent read. I loved the background and history. Allison & Tyler are quite an interesting pair. The romance was slow going, but definitely worth the wait. Between the house, past and present death all made a great mystery. I thought for sure I knew who did it, but I was so shocked at the reveal. I was way off. Ms Graham is a grand storyteller. ( )

Book 8 in the Krewe of Hunters series. This story takes place in Philadelphia where the 2nd team of the Krewe of Hunters is called in because of a death at the Tarleton-Dandridge House. Docent Allison Leigh discovers a body after she closes the house for the day. Tyler Montague from the Krewe is sent to investigate to see if there is something unusual going on in the house or was this death an accident or a suicide. Lots of interesting history on the Revolutionary War and of course the twists and turns of a good mystery. This is a good series and I like this story very much. I wanted to keep reading. ( )
