Silent Night, Haunted Night
By Terri Garey
Publisher: Avon
Release Date: October 27, 2009

Nicki Styx sees dead people...and not by choice. Ever since her heart stopped a year ago and she saw the light, she has become the "go to" person for the dead who have unfinished business. No sooner does Nicki help one dearly departed than another one shows up looking for assistance. How's a girl supposed to have a personal life with so many interruptions?

At the center of Nicki's personal life is Dr. Joe Bascombe, the doctor who brought her back to life and eventually stole her heart. Joe knows about Nicki's "gift", and though he doesn't always understand her ability to see the dead, he tries to be as supportive as possible. Not an easy task considering some of the paranormal goings on he's been exposed to. But Joe will do just about anything for the woman he loves.

Nicki and Joe have already dealt with the devil himself. As in the Devil with a capital 'D', or as he chooses to call himself, Sammy Divine--blond, gorgeous, and sexy as sin. If Joe and Nick can handle Sammy D, anything else should be a piece of cake, right? But they didn't count on the Three Fates showing up and wreaking their own special brand of havoc! Especially Selene, a succubus who has set her sights on Joe. By seducing Joe, Selene plans to show Nicki what happens when she interferes with the "dark side." So much for Nicki's plans for a holly jolly Christmas! But Nicki must learn to trust herself and her gift, and not be afraid to ask for help from her friends....and that handsome devil, Sammy, too, if she is to win this fight for the love of her life.

Terri Garey never fails to entertain with her Nicki Styx series, and Silent Night, Haunted Night is full of fun, mayhem and just the right dose of spookiness. I've been hooked on this series since Book 1, Dead Girls Are Easy--a RITA winner--and I hope the adventures of Nicki continue for quite sometime. Although the books can be read out of order, it's much more enjoyable to start at the beginning: Dead Girls Are Easy, A Match Made In Hell, and You're The One That I Haunt. Treat yourself to a paranormal romance this Friday the 13th, and get your "woo woo" on with Silent Night, Haunted Night.



  1. Hey, thanks so much for the great review! My Friday the 13th is starting out pretty good! :-)

    LOVE the look you've got going here on the Dish, btw. Very nice!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Terri! Glad your Friday the 13th is off to a good start. Mine, too. :)

    Thanks for the compliments on The Dish! We are loving it!

  3. Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!

    Great review, Gannon! I especially love the "woo woo" part. LOL! This one sounds like a good one!

  4. Andrea, this is such a fun series! Nicki Styx is great. I think you'd really love it.

    Happy Friday the 13th! :)

  5. Oh, I am with you, I have been on the Terri Garey train from day one, I am sad that the Styx series ended with Silent Night, Haunted Night but Sammy will be showing up soon.

  6. I'm pretty much a Historical Girl

    That being said,
    I almost bought "Dead Girls Are Easy" when it first came out. But I just wasn't sure if it was my kind of read.
    Now that I've read Gannon's review , I'm kicking myself! "Dead Girls" was a RITA winner ( congratulations TerrI), And the series is Spooky, Fun, fand full of talking dead people. Sounds like I'm really missing out on a great series... a great 'my kind of read'!

  7. Dianna, isn't it a great series?! I'm sad it's ending, but hoping to see Sammy again soon. :)

  8. Julie, you should definitely give this series a try. Historicals are my first love, too, but this series has so much going for it. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

  9. Hi Terri! Happy Friday the 13th! Fancy meeting you here. :-) You already know how I feel about this book since I've been talking about it since it came out on October 27th. :-)

  10. Gannon~ Isn't this just an absolutely fantastic series??? I went on a book hunt on October 27th just to find Silent Night, Haunted Night LOL I loved it!!!
    Oh, did you read the Nicki short story in Weddings from Hell? It was Titled Ghouls Night Out

  11. Dorthy, I did read the short story in the anthology. I wouldn't miss a word that Terri writes about Nicki! :)

  12. Hey all just a tid-bit but did you know that Terri's book Silent Night, Haunted Night went into its SECOND printing just TWO weeks after hitting the shelves?

    Isn't that AWESOME?!?!?!


  13. I don't think don't think that I'll be disappointed either. The books are now on my "gotta buy " list.

  14. Congratulations, Terri!!!!
