When Danielle Boatman inherits Marlow House, she dreams of turning it into a seaside bed and breakfast. Since she’s never visited the property, Danielle’s not sure what awaits her in Oregon. She certainly doesn’t expect to find one of the house’s previous owners still in residence. After all, the man has been dead for almost ninety years—shouldn’t he have moved on by now?
Charming Walt Marlow convinces Danielle the only way he can move on is if she solves the mystery of his death. Danielle soon discovers her real problems may come from the living—those who have their sights on Marlow House’s other secrets.
What's New in Version 5.0
The Ghost And Mrs Muir? Not quite
Amazon reviewers compare this story (understandably) to The Ghost And Mrs Muir. I can understand. The heroine was married, does solve a mystery, is developing an emotional but non-sexual relationship with a ghost, and has no pending love interest. The ghost is learning to have fun haunting intruders.
I think that this story differs in that it is plain from the beginning that the main character was badly hurt in her previous relationship. I don't think that a fictional character (nor a real person) needs to immediately find a hero to jump into bed with after an emotional trauma. There are more books in the series and room for more characters and relationship development later. There is romance in this book by way of the side-kick best friend's life. Unlike The Ghost And Mrs Muir there is lots of opportunity to later meet new characters and expand the people and experiences via the B & B that the main character is opening.
I didn't feel a strong identification with any of the characters but the story was fun and not altogether predictable.
