Author 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.”
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.
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.
