Updated this review to the Audible format.

This is a stand-alone title in the paranormal romance genre so this won’t make it into book break downs because it is a complete and total story unto itself. She normally has vamps & werewolves but this one has ghosts. A family legacy of literal skeletons in closets.

Deacon is a rich bachelor attempting to restore the historic island home that has been in his family since it was built. The home is ripe with ghost stories and the strange happenings make keeping a working crew almost impossible. He solves this by basically contracting a group to essentially be stranded until it can be completed. Nina, the heroine, is the landscaper with a past. As strange things start to happen, Deacon tries to logically explain them while Nina’s guilty conscience falls to her unfortunate past. As details of the history of the house are unearthed, the lines between reality and logic start to blur. Everything is not as it seems, and truth really is stranger than fiction.

It is a good audiobook that is worth a listen or read!

It’s a great read in-between series or for a light refreshing pick-me-up for a palate cleanser after a bad read/listen.

I have since listened to some of her other stories but all completely out of order because I have yet to acquire the whole of any of her series. What I have gotten my hands on has been good despite being all over the place. Her style across the board is light on the sex but full of great characters that you just can’t get enough of with a dash of comedy. I love authors that can work some laughs into things.

I definitely recommend this audiobook!

Light on steam but big on story and heart!

I loved the characters and even shed happy tears it was so good!

Narrator was great! I felt wrapped up in the story the whole time in both the story telling and the characters voices themselves. I would recommend the audiobook version of this book.

This book is a standalone story and my first full length book by Molly Harper. I have listened to a novella by her that was in “The Undead In My Bed” anthology which really made me want to hear more.

This is a very PG story as far as the sex goes but the story more than makes up for it. Lots of laughs along the way and some very memorable quotes!


“Oh, dear God, brain, we are not friends anymore.”…

is my favorite and totally one I can relate to in my own life.

Deacon is completely adorkable and my new book boyfriend.

What was created in the atrium I am envious of and want one just like it one day!

I highly recommend this book and plan to read more by this author as soon as I can get my hands on the audiobook versions!
