Ghosts of the Falls by Sarah Gilman
Determined to prove she’s fit for the family business, exorcist Jade Clarence knows the assignment waiting in Maine is her last chance. Born into a family of exorcists, Jade’s unorthodox ideas have gotten her into trouble in the past...and cost the life of a client.
After haunting a Maine state park for more than a century, Dutch Hutchinson will do whatever it takes to bring an end to his unfulfilling existence. When an act of arson brings a beautiful exorcist to town, Dutch takes corporeal form in order to spend his last hours in her company.
Jade quickly uncovers Dutch’s true identity and finds herself falling for the man behind the spirit. But when Jade’s legacy threatens their future, they will have to overcome the greatest of odds—life and death.
Jade Clarence messed up a job she had as a family exorcist. It is her families business and now she is out to prove she can do it right. Sent to Maine to get rid of a ghost who has been haunting a state park she is surprised at what she finds. Dutch Hutchinson died more than a century ago and is tired of being here. He wants to move on so he does a few things to get an exorcist called. When Jade shows up he takes a form to talk to her. Now he doesn't want to leave her. As they fall in love Jade's family arrives to threaten Dutch's stay. They have to fight if they want to be together.
Jade has a really soft heart and it has caused her trouble before. She wants to help everyone whether they are living or not. She is a smart talented woman who is afraid to let her family down but will fight for what she wants. Dutch has nothing to stick around for and wants to just be gone. A life of loneliness has left him ready to give up. He had a bad past with his death that he needs to let go of. I really liked both these characters. They help each other and will do anything to be together.
This is a short story but you get the full impact. The plot is a good one you don't see a lot of. An excorcist and a ghost falling for each once I read the blurb I knew I had to read the book. There is action as they have to try to save Dutch and see if they can be together. There is love as they begin to fall for each other and help each other overcome their past. They really talk to each other and work together. If you are looking for a good story that is a joy to read pick this one up and find out what happens when a ghost an exorcist fall in love.
