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."

But Nina 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.

It has been a long, long time since I read a contemporary romance. And I really appreciate the open dialogue and the more forward attitude towards dating, relationships, and romance in general. I think I need to get out of the historicals to breathe in the contemporary scene on a regular basis. Despite the general entertaining cast of characters and a reasonable murder mystery, there was something off throughout the book. Whether it be a disconnection in a dialogue, jokes that don't really make sense, and a straight up name change halfway through the book (albeit used only once) that gave me the impression that the book might've needed an extra set of editing and polishing.
