Publisher's Summary

Andie Miller is ready to move on with her life. She wants to marry her fiancé and leave behind everything in her past, especially her ex-husband, North Archer. But when Andie tries to gain closure with him, he asks one final favor of her. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans who have driven away three nannies already, and things are getting worse. He needs someone to take care of the situation, and he knows Andie can handle anything....

When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared. Carter and Alice aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. Complicating matters is Andie’s fiancé’s suspicion that this is all a plan by North to get Andie back. He may be right, because Andie’s dreams have been haunted by North since she arrived at the old house. And that’s not the only haunting....

Then her ex-brother-in-law arrives with a duplicitous journalist and a self-doubting parapsychologist, closely followed by an annoyed medium, Andie’s tarot card–reading mother, her avenging ex-mother-in-law, and her jealous fiancé. Just when Andie’s sure things couldn’t get more complicated, North arrives to make her wonder if maybe this time things could just turn out differently....

    "Thoroughly Entertaining"

    This was my first Jennifer Crusie book ever and won???t be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed the book; we have a little mystery, a few ghost, a little romance, and lots of quirky characters. Angela Dawe as the narrator was excellent. I am quite happy with this selection.

    "There's a reason it's one of Audible's Best"

    Jennifer Crusie has written quite a gem of a story. It's been a while since I've been blown away by a superbly imaginitive storyline backed by a strong herione and other endearing characters and this story is certainly told with a refreshing and insightful voice.

    Angela Dawe, my new favorite narrator, is the perfect voice for the spunky heroine! She's the type of narrator that makes me choose to listen to an audiobook that I probably wouldn't have listened to.

    "just plain fun"

    Jennifer Cruisie sure writes fun stories. This one was a little different than some of her others, but I have never been disappointed. Just a plain fun read.

    "Loved, loved this book & the narrator!!"

    What a wonderful story ~~ it's easy to fall in love w/ Andi Miller, who is trying to cut all times w/ her ex husband from 10 yrs ago. But North Archer is not so easy to let go of ~ and when he asks her to go down to Archer House, where his two wards are living w/ a house keeper and save the day, how can she resist? I loved the quirky characters, the kids were great, and Andi & North's relationship was so easy to find yourself rooting for them to make it work!! The narration on this was EXCELLENT!! This is the first time I've listened to Angela Dawe, but you can bet I'll be buying other books she's narrated ~ I would have sworn there were multiple people doing this book, and infused each character with such personality it was just a pleasure to listen to!!

    "Enjoyed!"

    Kind of crazy with all the paranormal characters but funny and sweet too. Narrator was excellent. Sometimes when kids are in the story the narrator has a difficult time with the kid voices and adult voices but Angela Dawe does a great job. For me, Jennifer Crusie has some good stories and some not so good. This is one of her better books.

    "Ist time listen to Jennifer Crusie"

    Listen to Jennifer Crusie for the first time and the last. It could have been decent if it wasnt for the she said, he said, they said over and over. That took away from the whole book. Dont waste your credit like I did, I said!!!

    "Not into Ghosts"

    I guess I can't count on a Jennifer Cruisie purchase being a sure bet. This was a ghost story on a Hardy Boy level....no.... this is a ghost story that Nancy Drew as a converted Mormon mother would write. It was silly frankly.

    Story
    "GODs name taken in vain-f word used-not believable"

    Story began like it would be a good read but the longer it went, the worse it got. The 2nd half was real distasteful. Lots of loss ends. I would not recommend this book. I really hate to hear my Lord's name used as it was here and the "F" word was so un necessary. I thought these books were written by smart people with much better word useage.It seems to be harder and harder to find a good book.

    "Great story, Great Characters..."

    Great characters, interesting complicated story, but I just can't get into these paranormal stories. The romance is believable, the characters real, even the ghosts and that part of the story is well written, but it ends with two more good ghosts joining them and left me feeling defeated -they and the poor kids will never be free of ghosts even after the powerful struggle they went through to rid themselves of the evil ghosts they had finally sent on to the afterlife. Great story -I just don't get the romance of the whole paranormal thing.
