"a very fine ghost story"

Kit Schofield is under attack. Someone wants the young wealthy woman dead bad enough to try several times, from a hit-and-run accident to an outright sniper attack. But who has the motive to kill her when she's never done anything to deserve it? Perhaps the answer lies in the resort she owns at Spirit Lake in Canada where the last of her mother's family still live. Bart, her childhood friend and one-time stepbrother, wants to keep Kit alive and so he follows her when she heads up North. He has his reasons for wanting to protect her, in particular that he's never really bought into the brother-sister relationship between Kit and himself. He wants to be with her, but it isn't brotherly love he feels and he knows Kit feels the same way.

Once at Spirit Lake, Kit and Bart must examine the past as well as the present to determine the truth about who is out to kill her, and in addition solve a many years' past mystery. The ghostly spirits who haunt the resort insist as they provide their own unique kind of guidance to direct the investigation.

Unquiet Spirits is a very fine ghost story with a lot of mystery. I very much enjoyed the interactions of the two main characters as they work through their feelings about each other in a realistic way, not too fast and not too slow. The unquiet spirits of the title add an amusing touch at times, while at others they are a chilling presence in the book. The writing is excellent, filled with lovely details about the Canadian woods, the lake, and the lodge, which was a place I'd certainly love to visit. The love scenes were really good too. The mystery aspects kept me guessing as to who was responsible right up until the end of the book. As with all of Dee's books, including Ghost Of A Chance, its predecessor, I recommend Unquiet Spirits for a change of pace from the usual paranormal thrillers.

The eagerly awaited third Romantic Suspense novel in Dee Lloyd's Dangerous Waters series...

Headstrong Kit Schofield, convinced the hit and run that almost killed her was a random act of violence, heads north to her family resort at Spirit Lake. Lifelong buddy Bart joins her as self-appointed bodyguard.

Disturbing, old secrets and equally unsettling ghosts lurk in the lodge and the calm waters of the deceptively peaceful resort.

And a deadly, elusive killer strikes again.

All this fades into the background when one kiss unleashes unexpected, unwelcome and totally distracting passion. But what happens when two lusty ghosts who drop clues about old murders and insist Kit and Bart are soul mates further confuse their lives?
