Better Homes and Hauntings

18755773Author of the beloved Half Moon Hollow series of vampire romances (Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs), Molly Harper has created a standalone paranormal romance in which a dilapidated haunted house could bring star-crossed lovers together—if it doesn’t kill them first!

When Nina Linden is hired to landscape a private island off the New England coast, she sees it as her chance to rebuild her failing business after being cheated by her unscrupulous ex. She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate—he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in nineteenth-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo.”

But Nina shows no signs of being scared away, even as she experiences some unnerving apparitions herself. And as the two of them work closely together to restore the mansion’s faded glory, Deacon realizes that he’s found someone who doesn’t seem to like his fortune more than himself—while Nina may have finally found the one man she can trust with her bruised and battered heart.

But something on the island doesn’t believe in true love…and if Nina and Deacon can’t figure out how to put these angry spirits to rest, their own love doesn’t stand a ghost of a chance.

My Thoughts on the Book

Thank you Net Galley for the chance to read this book and offer an honest review.

I am a huge fan of Molly Harper books, they almost always have the right balance of humor, mystery and sometime they can even be a bit scary. This book was scarier then most of her others but still a joy to read. This is a true full blown ghost story and at times it did put my nerves on end but is true Molly Harper fashion she does a wonderful job of calming your nerves with humor and great banter between the characters. There were a lot of little mysteries about the characters that got answered through out the book leaving the big one of course to the very end. I would have like a little bit more back story for Nina, I think it would have added more humor to the book that Molly is so good at. But other then that I truly loved the book and I will be adding it to my collection when it is released.
