The Big Easy – check. Mystery – check. Romance – check. A heart stopping, must read adventure – check! This book kept me glued to my chair and engrossed in its pages from beginning to end. Pulkinen does a fantastic job weaving this tale with just the right amount of fantasy, mystery, suspense, and romance. I was immediately fascinated and drawn to the main characters and found myself deeply invested as to how the story would ultimately unfold. Absolutely recommended! So good!

This is another amazing story from Carrie Pulkinen! She is able to pull in the sights and sounds of The Big Easy making them into a wonderfully interesting and thrilling story. It amazes me how the characters don’t seem afraid but I’m not sure I could live in the museum. I understood Blake nervousness at times. I also loved the whole Wonderland theme throughout! Very cool!

I loved getting Sydney’s story. Blake seems like the perfect guy for her and he seamlessly fits into the story. This also introduces some new characters…Claire—-GAH! We also get to see the ghost/tour crew again and see what they have been up to.

This story surprised me and gave me shivers all at the same time. I loved that! That makes me want to keep reading for the shock value plus the romance story. I look forward to more from these characters.

PS…I didn’t realize that the Macey we meet here is the same Macey from her other series til the note at the end. Great Crossover!

Love & Omens is the second book in the Crescent City Ghost Tours series by Carrie Pulkinen. You will notice while reading my review, that the word “love” is used frequently- I apologize (sorry not sorry)! But I freaking LOVE this book/series!!!
The first book, Love & Ghosts was completely captivating- so there was no way I was missing this instalment. I couldn’t wait for it to release, and as with the first one, I was absolutely thrilled to finally get my hands on it.
This is a fantastic paranormal romance- with ghosts, second chances, visions, omens, supernatural elements, new beginnings, paranormal investigations, mystery, suspense, action, danger, drama, obsession, and plenty of sizzle….. which is all set against the vibrant, colourful and mystical backdrop that is New Orleans.
I really didn’t think it was possible to love a book more than I loved the first instalment- so I had incredibly high expectations for this story. But, we are talking Carrie Pulkinen here, so it’s no real surprise that she absolutely nailed it!! I love this story just as much as the first, if not more.
The characters are fully realised, interesting, and endearing individuals, who really brought this story to life. I particularly love that there are recurring characters from book one, who we get to ‘catch up with’ as well (and even one from another loved series). They were really interesting and very well developed. I love Sydney and Blake- OMG they were just soooo perfect together, even if they tried to resist their chemistry at the beginning. I was definitely rooting for them the whole way through! And I love how Ms. Pulkinen kept the tension levels turned up to ‘high’- ramping up the suspense and weaving in a few twists as well. It kept me glued to the pages- avidly reading along to discover how everything would play out. The ‘action’ and intensity were exhilarating- but it was the emotive quality and the camaraderie between the characters which really gave the story an added depth- and making it truly memorable.
I have said this before, and I will say it again here: I have a severe addiction to Ms. Pulkinen’s work- and it’s one that I am more than happy to indulge- no rehab needed, EVER! She’s definitely one of my favourite authors, and I will never get enough of her work! I’m so looking forward to the next book!

Thank you, Ms. Pulkinen!

5-Stars

Love & Omens (Crescent City Ghost Tours Book 2) by Carrie Pulkinen was a romantic and fun read. Sydney and Blake once dated in the past and meet again when the Crescent City Ghost Tours decides to take on a partner. They want to add a haunted museum with artifacts from murders. An ominous vision distracts Syd from the conversation with her boss regarding adding Blake and she is shocked upon seeing him. Things happen and the two must work together to figure out how her vision is tied into someone’s death. Can they figure it out before death stakes it’s claim?
The characters in this novel were amazing. Sydney was a strong heroine with a spunky attitude. She stood her ground in tough situations and went for what she desired. Blake was also an excellent main male character. He was hunky, down to earth, and fun. These two also had amazing gifts. I loved seeing them come together and work with the team.
The storyline also had great flow and was easy to follow. I was hooked immediately from the beginning. This book is the second in this series but could easily be read as a standalone. Significant events that played a part for this book were mentioned in the storyline to keep readers from becoming confused. Having read the first novel and this one as well I do recommend reading them both. This book was amazing and such a fun read. I highly recommend it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

LOVE & OMENS is the second book in the “Crescent City Ghost Tours Series” and I think it would be beneficial to read book 1 (LOVE AND GHOSTS) first. There are characters that play a role in book 2 that we met in book 1.

Set in New Orleans, LOVE & OMENS tells the story of a woman who can see the future and a man who can see the past. They have a pull to each other that cannot be explained and yet cannot be avoided. There are a couple of different stories swirling around all at the same time.

The writing is detailed, the story flows well from beginning to end and at times I was grateful I wasn’t alone in my house. I’ve been on a ghost tours before as I live near Salem MA and I would absolutely go to Crescent City and take a tour.

Love & Omens (Crescent City Ghost Tours Book 2) by Carrie Pulkinen. It just keeps getting better! I will say these books can be read as a stand-alone without any confusion but I do highly recommend the first story also and the characters are entwined also. So first and foremost let me just start by saying I was so completely drawn into Blake and Sydney’s story. I got so wrapped up I lost track of time and before I knew I’d been up ready late into the night because I couldn’t put it down. I love a story I can sink into and this author does just that with the story world she created. The characters are complex and relatable, each bringing something unique to the story. I love the mix of suspense, romance and paranormal and this author found just the right amount of each. It kept me on my toes and I loved every minute of it. I love the attention to even the smallest details making the story jump off the pages and come alive before your eyes. I’m excited to see where the author takes readers next. Five stars all the way and I highly recommend not only this series but this author!

By: Carrie Pulkinen
5 out of 5 stars

The story Love & Omens (Crescent City Ghost Tours Book 2) by Carrie Pulkiene is the next amazing story is a wonderful series. First off, I love books that are based in New Orleans. The city has a mystery and charm about it that I have not found in other locations. I also loved the storyline and the characters. Sydney Park and Blake Beaumont are wonderful to read about. The story has Blake joining forces with a tour company and Sydney. Not only does he want to join as a partner, but he also sees a chance to restart the relationship that he has with her. The story is full of mystery and has an atmosphere that takes you in the world of the unknown. What will happen when situations happen that could cause danger to both Sydney, Blake, and those around them? Will Blake and Sydney rekindle their relationship? What does the future hold for Blake, Sydney and the tour company? Read this book to find out. The story has emotional moments and my emotions went up and down with the characters. I grew to care about Sydney and Blake and wanted them to be happy. There are additional characters that interact with Sydney and Blake which I enjoyed reading about. This is a book that came to an end far too soon. I look forward to the next one in the series. I highly recommend this book and series.

This is the second book in this series, it just keeps getting better. I was pulled into the story from the start and couldn’t put it down until the last page. Sydney and Blake are great characters and the emotional rollercoaster ride as well as the suspense, mystery they took me on you won’t want to miss. They have a past but will there be a second chance in their future? Survival is a race against time, will time run out?. I highly recommend reading the rest of their story.

Love & Omens (Crescent City Ghost Tours, #2)Love & Omens by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love & Omens is the second book in the Crescent City Ghost Tours series. It can be read as a standalone, but I think the best enjoyment would come after reading the first book. You’ll get a better feel for the characters from the first book that are mentioned in this one. Plus, the first book was awesome!

Dealing with a psychic gift can be tricky. Syd makes a judgment call but it turns out to be a big mistake. When she gets a second chance at making it right, will she take it? I love second chance stories because it brings up a feeling of hope.

As always, I love this author’s ability to paint vivid pictures and develop intriguing characters. I also loved the use of psychometry in this story. It isn’t a gift a lot of authors write about when choosing the powers their character has.

I hope there are more books planned for this series!
