"A funny supernatural romance that is quite good"

In Atlantic City, the three Van Buren siblings (Jonas, Isadore, and James) died when inebriated and they drove off the road into the nearby water. For the last seventy years they have haunted the family home at Laguna Vista, but the last decade has been boring, as no one has resided in the house. The ghosts know they are somewhat at fault with their pranks that have kept their descendants away.

One of their relatives Marcus Van Buren hires novice ghostbuster Daisy Malone to certify that Laguna Vista is ghost free so he can get rid of this mausoleum. Her family needs the money, but ethics and knowing spirits live there provide Daisy with a moral dilemma. As three worried apparitions play matchmaker, Daisy and Marcus fall in love, but does this couple have a ghost of a chance to make a permanent relationship last when they disagree about the existence of Jonas, Isadore, and James?

The key to what makes SCANDALOUS SPIRITS so delightful a novel that paranormal romance fans will want to read is the strong cast. The lead couple and the ghostly support players seem real so that the audience believes in the magic of love and the authenticity of sprightly spirits. Surprisingly Jonas faces an angst-laden decision that will endear him even more to readers and showcase the abilities of C.B. Scott to convert the surreal into feeling so real.

Marcus Van Buren's ghostly family has been a thorn in his backside since the day he was born. Now he's paying someone to get rid of them.

Inexperienced ghostbuster Daisy Malone should be ecstatic the ultra-wealthy tabloid darling, Marcus Van Buren, is paying her big bucks to conduct a sham of an investigation. The windfall will bail her family out of financial ruin. According to Marcus, all she has to do is tell the truth and sign a document swearing the old family home, Laguna Vista, is 100% ghost-free. Unfortunately, Daisy knows otherwise.

Brought together by their quirky relatives (three of them dead), Marcus and Daisy learn the power of forgiveness, the beauty of love, and the true meaning of "all for one and one for all."
