About The Book
 Life can change in the most unexpected ways.

Ashlyn Montana had encountered ghosts her whole life, but none more charming or irresistible than Bob Abbott. From the moment the fatherly figure floated into her life, she knew she had met a friend she could trust. Pressured by her family to marry young, Ashlyn takes Bob’s advice and goes on the run in disguise. But when he talks her into taking a job in Breaker Creek as a farm boy named Al, she becomes suspicious. Did her ghostly pal lead her to freedom, or entangle her into his past?

Hunter Abbott had no idea what he was getting into hiring the clueless and scrawny farm boy, Al. But he felt for the kid. There was a time he was once a lost boy looking for a place to belong, until his Uncle Bob took him under his wing. But when Hunter tries to help turn Al into a farmer it leads to a shocking discovery. His new hire is hiding an unbelievable secret. And Hunter is about to face a reality he never thought possible.

Can the two people Bob Abbot loves most, find love as they work to solve the mystery of his murder?


This is a review of the excerpts below, and NOT of the entire book. I only do this with books I'm REALLY excited about, and can't wait to read. In this case, I have already bought the Kindle Edition, and will be purchasing the paperback edition as well!! And that's the TRUTH. 

Okay, so it might seem a bit unusual to see TWO excerpts from the same book, but I really couldn't decide between these two! The first one is full of paranormal tension, while the second is full of good ol' fashioned sexual tension...... Lol.  So, of course, both were appealing to me! Besides, although I've just met them, I really like these characters, and think they're heading for a very sweet, passionate romance! Plust, I love the whole angle of Bob, the male protagonist's deceased uncle, helping these two lovebirds realize they're truly meant for each other....
I really and truly cannot wait to find out more, and I'm VERY sincere, folks! 
(I especially like how her dazzling smile suddenly made him unable to

Book Excerpt

Excerpt One
“Man it's chilly in here,” Hunter said suddenly, walking over to shut the window. “Must be a cold front coming in.”
“It is not a cold front,” she told him, standing up with renewed confidence. Bob was here. She wasn’t alone. She could convince Hunter she was telling the truth.
He gave her a strange look. “How do you know?”
“Because Bob is here,” she announced. “And when Bob is nearby it gets colder.”
Hunter stared back at her, his expression unreadable. “Don’t lie to me, Ashlyn. It will only make everything between us worse.”
“I’m not lying.” She reached out and ran her hand up his arm, feeling his goose bumps. “See how cold you are? That’s because your uncle is standing right here.” She gestured to the left of them with her free hand. “Right in this room. 
He took a step away from her touch and shook his head. “I don’t believe you.”
She lifted her chin, pretending his retreat didn’t hurt. “Then I’ll prove he’s here.”
“How are you going to do that?” His eyes darted to the left of them, looking spooked. Hunter said he didn’t believe her, but his nerves were visible. 
“Ask me something only Bob would know,” she challenged, looking him in the eye. “And I will tell you his answer.”

Excerpt Two
“Do you believe me?” she asked quietly.
He turned to look at her, needing to see her beauty and erase the ugliness that had just erupted in his life. “I do.”
In her golden green eyes, there was nothing but relief. She reached up and cupped his face in her hands, and before he could react, she had pressed a soft kiss on his lips. “Thank you,” she said, pulling back. “Thank you for believing me.”
He blinked hard, his heart hammering in his chest. She kissed him out of pure gratitude, and he wanted her to do it again. Only this time he would crush her to him, and never let go. 
He forced his hands to his sides. Ashlyn had been through too much already. She was trying to help his uncle, despite her own predicament. It showed him that her heart was pure and wonderful. He had to focus on protecting that heart from his family. Instead of pursuing the feelings between them, he needed to push her towards starting her own life. 
He took a breath and turned to her. “I do believe you, Ashlyn—”
“Call me, Ash,” she said, and then blushed, looking away. “I mean, if you want to. My brother always did.”
Her brother called her Ash, and now she was asking him to. It confirmed she felt those sparks between them too— sparks that were so damn hard to deny.  “Ash,” he corrected. As soon as he said it, she gave him a smile so dazzling he could no longer think.
