Book Review: Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror #1) - Karina Halle

Synopsis - Darkhouse introduces two real and unforgettable characters, Perry Palomino and Dex Foray, amateur ghost hunters who are "attractive, relatable and oddly heroic, "flawed and loveable", "slightly crazy" and just the most endearing pair to tackle the paranormal...just don't call them normal.  (Taken from Goodreads).

Review -  Perry, a young woman who went through childhood with a vivid imagination OR did she have the sight?  No one else believed her or saw her 'imaginary' friends and thus Perry went through some drug induced teenage years.  Dex, ten years older, a website film maker has his own problems.  He lies, and he is taking anti-psychotic medications for manic depression.

Our characters meet in a lighthouse owned by Perry's Uncle Al.  Perry is on a weekend vacation at her Uncle's when she wanders off towards the lighthouse and unable to keep her curiosity at bay, enters the building.  She meets Dex who encourages her to explore and film the lighthouse with him.  Thus, a partnership is born and they return later to lay the ghosts to rest.  This is the first of a series of stories starring Perry Palomino and Dex Foray, paranormal hunters and film makers.  They have enough chemistry to keep the reader interested and ask do they, don't they etc?  A great, fun read.  4*
