A single mom and her teenage daughter move next to a spooky old house, and the small-town sheriff comes to their aid.
The ghost next door: When destiny takes a hand... You've got to hold on tight.
When single mom Elizabeth Jennings gets sent to a new town to revamp its weekly paper, she resists. Her daughter Claire is just 15, and has recently started high school. But Elizabeth's boss insists, so the two pack up and move to the tiny Virginia town, which isn't even on most maps. Their luck goes from bad to worse when they discover the house Elizabeth rented online cozies up to an abandoned house. When creepy things start occurring next door, Elizabeth's glad to have the small-town sheriff in their corner. Nathan Thorpe is not just a stand-up guy they can trust, he's cool to have around when things go bump in the night. Elizabeth also learns he's good at holding her tight. And, when she's wrapped in his arms, she becomes afraid of more than ghostly happenings. She fears she's losing her heart.
Like most folks in Blayton, Nathan Thorpe is here for a reason. Only, he didn't fully understand what that reason was until a stunning brunette and her daughter came to town. Nathan's immediately drawn to Elizabeth and feels motivated to protect her and Claire, believing that means shielding them from nonsensical small-town lore. With Halloween approaching, there are rumors swirling about concerning the old Fenton place located across the street from the graveyard, and next to the newer home occupied by the Jennings. Nathan's a calm thinker who can find a rational explanation for almost anything. Yet there are deeper mysteries in Blayton than Nathan can explain. When he learns the truth, will he still be able to hold on to the woman he loves?
A sweet, traditional PG-rated romance.

YES, IT IS ONE OF THE BEST MYSTERIES I HAVE HEARD
NO, BUT I LIKED HER, SHE WAS A BIT MELLOW, BOUT GOOD
YOU WON'T SEE IT COMING
I LOVE THE FACT THAT I HAD -NO HINT AS TO THE ENDING
Books speak to the soul.
I tried but just could not finish for many reasons. first the words were cut off at the end of the sentence & the speed was painfully slow on 1.0 but too fast on 1.25. The storyline may have suffered from this. Benefit of a doubt.
