The disappearing hitchhiker is one of the hoariest urban legends, and no one knows that better than Gabriel Walsh, a lawyer who grew up on folklore and myth. When Patrick--author of books on the supernatural--brings him the case of a hitchhiking woman in white who vanished on a country road after accepting a ride from a businessman, Gabriel knows the Cainsville elder is just trying to wheedle into his good graces. But Gabriel is a man in need of a mystery, one that will get him back into someone else's good graces. His investigator, Olivia Taylor-Jones, has blown town supposedly on a simple vacation. But when she left there was a rift between them and...he misses her. Gabriel is well aware the only thing Olivia loves more than a good mystery is a weird one, and this hitchhiker case more than fits the bill. As Gabriel digs into the case, though, he's forced to face ghosts of his own and admit that the woman in white isn't the only one who has lost her way.… (mere)

If the folklore was to be believed, half the supernatural creatures in the universe existed solely for the purpose of tricking men into sex. ( )

nice shorter story of the Cainsville story. The hardcover has illustrations which is kinda cool. ( )

When Patrick comes to Gabriel with a ghost story, Gabriel isn't really interested. Except he needs a mystery to get back into Olivia's good graces. Gabriel doesn't interact well with others and is pretty good at self-sabotage in his relationship with Olivia.

Even though the disappearing hitchhiker is a very common urban legend, something seems different with this case. Sightings of her have been common in the Chicago area for more than forty years. However, something seems to have changed in the last two years and the ghost now seems more vengeful than sad. There have been a number of suicides recently after encounters with her.

Gabriel is trying to track down those who have seen the mysterious hitchhiker and Patrick is wondering if he didn't start something he really can't control when he set Gabriel this task. Especially since his plan to get closer to Gabriel in order to get to know his son aren't working the way he had hoped.

And Olivia is also working on the case independently of Gabriel who wants her help but can't bring himself to ask for it. The case moves from a simple ghost story to actions of some vengeful fae before it ends and Gabriel has to confront some of the things from his past that have turned him into the man he is today.

This was entertaining and engaging. I enjoyed watching Olivia and Gabriel's relationship develop. ( )

I read my first book by Kelley Armstrong a couple of month's ago. The book was OK, not as fabulous as I had hoped it to be, but still enough interesting to make me want to tread more from the author. And, this novella felt like a good second book to read. Now, I don't know anything about Cainsville, but this novella was very good and I hope to get a chance to read the books in the series some day.

Lost Souls starts with Gabriel getting a case from Patrick about a hitchhiking woman in white who vanished after getting a ride in the care of a businessman. It doesn't seem to be a very troublesome case, but it's just the case that Gabriel needs to lure Olivia back after they had an argument and she went on a holiday with her boyfriend. So, this case may be just the thing to smooth things over since he doesn't want to lose her as an employee and as a friend. But, there is something really weird going on and even Patrick starts to think that something is off with the case...

Now, I'm a newbie with this series, but I do love paranormal series and this urban legend case fascinated me. I also enjoyed discovering more about the characters and learning more about Cainsville. In short, I was hooked and after I finished this novella was all I could think of that I need to read this series and I'm actually right now thinking of buying the first book...

I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review! ( )

Too much use of forced misunderstandings and Patrick being too concerned for my taste. Yes, it somewhat explains Gabriel's change of behavior, but no, it didn't work for me. ( )
