B-movie actress turned real estate agent Elizabeth Hunt should have it made. The real estate market is thriving and she had a fabulous house to sell. Too bad the house is in Banshee Creek, a tiny Virginia hamlet that has been recently crowned as the “Most Haunted Town in America.” But with the help of the Banshee Creek Historical Preservation Committee, Elizabeth hopes to put the ghost stories to rest. Her hometown will again be known for its vintage homes, its heirloom apple orchards, and its historical, not phantasmagorical, attributes, and she won’t let anyone, even her long-time crush, Gabe Franco, stand in her way.
Gabe Franco has a big problem. His new marketing campaign for Banshee Creek Cidery is based on one thing, ghosts. But the Historical Preservation Committee nutcases are trying to erase the town’s spookier traditions, and he has to stop them before they render his investment worthless. Unfortunately, the leader of the anti-ghost crusade is all-too-tempting Elizabeth Hunt, his best friend’s sister and the one woman who is strictly off limits. But when sexy real estate agent rallies the townsfolk against him, Gabe wonders if he'll lose his business…or his heart.
My Musings :
A great continuation to the first book I read by the author. I was happy to read more about the Banshee Creek characters and this book managed to keep me turning the pages in a happy mood.
I came to know Cole's sister, Elizabeth and his best friend, Gabe in this book. Elizabeth is a strong sassy woman who knows her own mind and doesn't depend on anyone for anything. Gabe is a by the book who likes to think that he knows best for everyone. Gabe especially made me laugh with his genuine confusion and clueless nature during the story while Elizabeth made me go through her grief process with her. Both have strong emotions which carried me through the tale. Other characters just added the needed glitter to the tale with their support and loveable traits.
The story flowed well and I was able to read it without any true obstructions. The romance element wasn't as heavy as in Must Love Ghosts book but it was enough to know the intensity of their love for each other. The theme of others knowing that they have fallen for each other continues in this book too. And I love this book because it executes the idea of falling for best friend's sibling well because that's one of my favourite themes.
One thing which kind of disappointed me was the total absence of Abby and Mike. I was expecting to atleast glimpse them in the book but alas it wasn't to be!
I can't wait to get my hands on other books in the series to know what happens to the other characters.
My one line review : A good romance with strong familial and emotional ties.
My rating : 4/5
My reread factor : 4/5
