MacKenzie has just got out of a bad marriage and when she inherits her great aunt's house it seems a perfect sign. She can move to Virginia get a new start and hopefully get her writing juices flowing again. The house is supposed to be haunted but that doesn't bother her. Justin has return to Penny Hollow to finish what his father wished. He only has to buy the haunted house from the new owner so he can move on with his life. He finds Mac won't sale and as he helps her fix up the place he discovers he may care for her. There is a few things standing in their way of having a relationship. A spiteful ex and even the ghost have plans for them.
This book is very well written and gets you intrigued from the start. Mac has a horrible ex husband who has made her trust no one. She is scared to let anyone get close to her. She is also dealing with a writers block but now that she is in her new home things seem to be falling together in her story. Justin starts out wanting to buy her home at any cost but after he gets to know her he wants her to stick around. He is a sexy man who is full of charm. He won't let anyone hurt Mac if he can help it even if it puts him in danger. I really liked him. The ghost story is a great one and I love how it ties into the characters now. You keep wondering what will happen next. Mac and Justin start out both wanting different things then they slowly work towards becoming friends even when Mac sometimes makes that hard to do. There is action, intrigue and much more rolled into this book. I would recommend to anyone looking for a romance story with ghost.
