Lost in the Light by Mary Castillo is the story of Dani Orihuela, a tough detective who is under investigation regarding a case. She purchased an old house while resting and getting herself back together again physically and emotionally. However, the house that is supposed to be her sanctuary is haunted by a ghost that needs her help. Despite already being on edge because of her job and her relationship with her family, Dani agrees and she is going to find out more than just the history of the house.

Lost in the Light grabbed my attention right from the start and I immediately gravitated towards the protagonist, Dori Orihuela. The pacing of the story is perfect. Transitions between paragraphs and chapters, as well as the present and Vincente Soralla’s past life, are flawless. I had no problem vividly imagining the settings and each portrayed scene. The characters are easily believable, as if they are real people who are included in the story instead of created characters for a fiction.

This is a paranormal story that not only has a ghost in it, but romance, action, humor, and some historical facts as well. I finished the story in one sitting. Again, the story is faultless and I -- as a fan of the paranormal genre -– am satisfied and entertained. Mary Castillo's talent is undeniable. I look forward to reading her other works and hope she continues to write for paranormal fans. All in all, a complete and brilliantly written piece.
