When Andie tries to gain closure with her ex-husband, he asks one final favor of her. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans. When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared.

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....

    "great narrator!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story was entertaining. The narrator did a wonderful job and made the book even more enjoyable.

    "Nice surprise"

    I have read 2 of Jennifer Crusie's books and found them to be enjoyable. I bought this one on sale after seeing that Angela Dawe was the narrator. Dawe did a nice job. The story itself was entertaining and I found myself doing extra housework and spending a little more time on the treadmill so I could listen a little longer. The story is a great mix of the absurd and believable. A very nice surprise.

    "Not just more of the same"

    I actually bought this book by accident, but I liked the author already and thought why not.
    I had expected more of the same from her... Guy and girl meet, hate each other, have sex, and get engaged within a month of meeting. That seems to be how all the others go. They aren't particularly clever in story line, but entertaining in writing style and kind of funny, so I read them.
    This one had more. There was a plausible ghost story/ possible psycotic episode mixed into the inevitable month long love story based on good sex. There were even a couple of plot twists I didn't see coming from several chapters back (again, the love story was not one of those). The writing was good and the characters were funny. They were a lot like many of her other characters though- she, a somewhat loose cannon of a woman, he an uptight yuppie controlled by his Mommy Dearest mother, still fun enough for what they are.
    The narration was adequate, but nothing more.

    "Decent...."

    It's not Crusie's best, but definitely not her worst either. She's at her best when she focuses on the relationships between the characters, which she kind of does here but the plot was a little too thin.

    "Surprising"

    I didn't find this book so "great, funny and interesting" as it was described in so many reviews. For me this book has rather silly and vacuous plot, but was written with humour and good language. While reading it I was remembering film "Ghostbusters". So I can recommend this book to everybody who like this film.

    "Yeay Girl, Your Back!"

    I have been an avid reader of Jennifer Crusie for a while now. So I was excited to see that she had a new audo book out & I have to tell you this book is great!!! Her caracters are spot on and the plot did keep me going (though I did miss her usual dog character in this one) The reader did a good job of all the characters & I would listen to her again. If you like Jennifer Crusie's Books than this one is a must! Happy Listening!!!

    "Do you believe in Ghosts?"

    Jennifer Crusie cracks me up. I love her sense of humor she puts into her books. From beginning to end, it was a pure fun & pleasure.

    "Great!"

    Loved it. I didn't want it to be over when I finished it. I enjoyed the sense of humor...the mystery...the bit of romance. It held my attention clear to the end..

    "I loved This book!"
    Would you listen to Maybe This Time again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this book again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Andy was my favorite character in the story, she's strong smart and bold


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When North arrived at the house with Andy and the kids. I wasn't expecting that to happen


    Any additional comments?

    This book really surprised me on how the story was read and told. It's all i wanted in a book, romance, mystery and comedy. Great book!!
