"A heart stopping paranormal romantic thriller"
Megan Barrow's had once used her psychic abilities as a
ghost-buster for the SPIRIT organization. But that was
before she'd had a close encounter of the demonic kind.
Nowadays she contents herself with using her abilities to
acquire memorabilia with happy memories for her antique
shop, Antique Fancies.
Enter Case Lambert, Seattle realtor who specializes in
turning houses over for profit. He's been having close
encounters of his own. Case had purchased the run down
Smithson mansion which he is turning over for his own use.
He had grown up in dire straits with a carpenter father who
had devoted all his time to fixing other people's homes
while their own fell down around their ears and a mother
who had used what little money they had pursuing psychics
who had all turned out to be quacks. For that reason he is
determined to have his home in mint condition before he
brings a wife and family into it. Unfortunately his dream
house appears to be haunted. He hires SPIRIT psychologist
Eric Ramsey with the hope that Eric will find a logical
explanation for the phenomenon he is experiencing.
Eric in turn had insisted that Megan be a part of the
investigation. Although Case sets her heart aflutter, Megan
insists that she is through with ghost-busting. The mention
of Eric's name makes her even more determined to refuse the
offer as he had been responsible for her last terrifying
experience. Nevertheless she soon finds herself ensconced
in Case's house, Eric, ghosts and all.
Yes, ghosts plural. Although one appears to have amorous
feelings for Case, it soon becomes apparent that something
truly terrible had occurred there and one spirit will stop
at nothing to keep the living from ridding the house of its
ghostly inhabitants. Megan soon realizes that the time has
come to stop playing it safe, to risk it all including her
heart. Not even the dead can keep Megan and Case from
falling in love.
A BABE IN GHOSTLAND is a heart stopping paranormal romantic
thriller that will have the reader believing in ghosts --
and true love. A highly recommended read.
