"A charming, witty romance set in an idyllic town filled with unforgettable characters that spark fire and chemistry from every page. You won’t want it to end!”
Allie Grant doesn’t believe in second chances. She does, however, believe in the power of a permanent paycheck. So when a tipster reports that a soon-to-be demolished building in her hometown is haunted, Allie hightails it to Whispering Bay to get the scoop that could secure her dream job at Florida! magazine. What she finds, though, is far scarier than any ghost. Cue her ex-boyfriend, sexy construction foreman Tom Donalan.
When Tom catches Allie poking around his construction site, he quickly realizes his former high school flame is just as feisty as ever. And, heaven help him, her irresistible, mile-high legs still take his breath away. But Tom isn’t about to delay the building’s demolition because of a silly ghost story.
With neither of the stubborn exes backing down from their opposing positions, sparks fly. And, underneath the surface, the fire of their old attraction burns as hot as ever. When strange things start happening with increasing frequency around town, even a tough skeptic like Tom is tested. The question is, can Allie and Tom stop fighting long enough to get to the bottom of Whispering Bay’s ghost problem—and the more important matter of mending their broken hearts?
A story with heart
The first thing I noticed was just how much heart and warmth this story has. There's humor, witty banter, engaging dialogue...hilarious inner monologues...and a cast of characters that you can't help but become emotionally invested in.
Tom and Allie definitely have a chemistry that jumps off the page. I so enjoyed them rediscovering each other again. I'm looking forward to reading more from the series, not only because I enjoy this author's writing style, bit to also keep up on Tom and Allie!
Allie is way to good for the likes of Tom Donalan. One of them obviously grew up, the other one may as well be one of the characters on Two Broke Girls. A romantic comedy gone haywire.
This book had me laughing out loud, and forcing myself stay up late just to finish it. It's definitely a romantic page turner you do NOT want to miss!
