Best Cameron Saga Books
One Wore Blue: This civil war novel is the first in a series about the Cameron family, a wealthy Virginia plantation household who break out of their family ties at the onset of the civil war.
Kiernan Mackay is a young beautiful and free spirited neighbor of the Camerons. She has loved Jesse Cameron for a long time, and fate has brought them together in the midst of the looming war. However, their love paradise is short-lived when Virginia withdraws from the Union, and the two lovers find themselves on conflicting sides, and neither is willing to sacrifice their beliefs. As an army surgeon, Jesse rides off to the North, leaving Kiernan in Harper’s Ferry, the little town that may collide with the Confederacy and the Union. War separates people, and it has a twisted way of reuniting them back in dramatic fashion. As the bloody conflict rages on, Jesse and Kiernan begin to grasp their feelings for each other, their ideas and loyalties. This is a narrative bordering on historical facts and a sensational human side. It is profoundly researched and deliciously flavored with a beautiful romance story of hardships, compromises and eventual triumphs against all the odds.

The “Krewe of Hunters series”. This is the tale of a ghost-hunting syndicate assigned to an old home in New Orleans. The wife of an influential politician in the region is dead, from a fatal fall off the property’s balcony. On discovering the latest series of events, the husband calls in for help claiming that their house is haunted and that ghosts killed his wife. The Krewe of hunters investigates the heinous murder and discovers numerous suspicious activities with the other household residents, which in no way are linked to the alleged ghosts as the sole cause the woman’s death. A love affair soon ensues between two team members, but the author does not dwell on that in the book. Overall, the book has fantastic characters put together in a brilliantly detailed storyline. It is quite an enjoyable read except that the romance is amiss and instead the writer chose to dwell on the horror part of the plot.
Heather did a great job to include multicultural characters, but most of them were stereotypes. Non-realistic movie types but you get the hang of it as you read along. Heather Graham also gives us great graphic locations and places. The overall plot was good and appeals to both young and old readers. I bet the subsequent books provide a lot of entertainment as this one did. All in all, Heather Graham is a brilliant writer, who has the ability to pen down highly entertaining books.
