"Ghosts and Family make for an interesing love story"

"The Society of Parapsychological Sleuths has disproved 95% of all investigated hauntings." The ancestral home of Marcus Van Buren was to be sold and Daisy Malone, new owner of SPS, has been hired to verify that Laguna Vista mansion, once touted as the jewel of the eastern seaboard, is ghost free.

Daisy is a novice, but because of her family's need for money, she is willing to lie if necessary to complete this assignment. She knows there are ghosts at Laguna Vista because she saw Jonas Van Buren when she was 10 years old. It was quite a shock to meet Marcus, as he is the exact image of his ghostly grandfather. Before this adventure concludes we meet the 3 Van Buren ghosts and are treated to their pranks and pleasure in showing their existence.

Even more fun is found with Daisy; her "in-your-face caring" family members who offer help with the ghost hunting, and with Marcus who finds himself falling in love with a woman he doesn't quite know how to handle. There are other secrets besides ghosts at Laguna Vista. Daisy and Marcus learn more about their family's secrets - and not just the ghostly ones. Will these secrets tear them apart or help them heal and find a life together?

Although some readers may find occasional slang dialog discomfiting, the pace and story move along smoothly in this tale of 3 ghosts from the "Roaring 20's" and their fun with those who come into their ancestral home. Being a first novel, there are some of the expected rough patches while wrapping up the plot. You will enjoy reading this story for some "ghostly entertainment" and it will please those who are looking for humor in the midst of the drama in the story.

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."
