Clementine, an in-demand sketch artist who needs an escape from her hectic, stressful, and busy city life, decides to take a much-needed one-year sabbatical. She welcomes the chance to move to a small town in the South and inhabit the old, Victorian mansion that, upon her aunt's recent passing, was willed to her.
Upon arriving Clementine meets Gabe, a kindly, considerate, and sexy jack-of-all-trades who helped her aunt while she was alive with the house, doing maintenance, repairs, and property upkeep.
They are instantly drawn to one another, and Clementine wonders if he likes curvy women such as herself while worrying what he might think if he knows she's what's known as a white witch. - a benevolent practitioner of the elements, magic, and energy.
Meanwhile Gabe wonders if Clementine will figure out that he's not exactly mortal or living. That he is in fact a spook. A ghost.
Ultimately they will discover a hidden mystery about their unique connection, crossing time and space to reveal the truth: their enduring love.
A beautiful love story between an artist/white witch of mixed heritage and an apparent local handyman with disappearing tendencies. Sometimes she can reach him at the mobile number he gave her, and other times not. She meets many town residents and makes friends while working and solving his mystery. Erotica only at the end. Excellent read!
Narrated by Clay Lomakayu who is marvelous in his audio interpretation.

This story has witches, ghosts, and reincarnation. It is an enjoyable short story to read/listen to of Love that surpass time and space.
The narrator, Clay Lomakayu gives a gruff narration of the story. His voice of the characters fit with the exception of Clementine. For some reason, his voice didn't sound right for her.
I was given this audiobook by the author/narrator/publisher via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated or influence in any way for writing this review.
Different and unexpected full of mystery.
Climentime is a white witch that makes her living in the art world. She was given her aunts home after she passes. Her first day at the new home she meets Gabe. He is handsome and a southern gentleman. He brings her food anf gives her his phone number so she can call for help.
That's were the story starts it's twists and very unexpected turns lol.
Not to give anything away I'll just tell ya Gabe is not who or what he seems to be and Climentime is more then she seems to be!
Great mystery of murder in the past and it's unexpected endung! I loved it.
First time with both author and Clay lomakayn I loved this sweet southern voice great choice for this story
Just the right kind of love story to listen to right around Halloween. It was a good love story
If you could sum up Spooked in three words, what would they be?
Tender love story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Clementine--she is successful and still is taking a year off because she can afford to regroup. She tries to blend in with the town and finds herself a friends who disappears but where? She does family research and in the end shows how we have grown and improved although we still have a way to go.
What aspect of Clay Lomakayu’s performance would you have changed?
There was not differentiating the voices of the characters. I liked his southern accent but it was more like he was reading a story rather than acting one out.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When they came together after finding out the truth.
Any additional comments?
I was provided a Free audio from the author and appreciate the story line a lot.
