Carrie Hansen spent her life caring for cardiac patients. Little did she know she would become a patient herself. After recovering from her own heart surgery, she learns she has a special talent: the ability to see and talk with the dead.
Now, with her new heart failing her, she leaves the bustle of Seattle behind and returns to Lexington, Missouri, the small town where she spent her childhood. Here, she sets out to restore an abandoned antebellum mansion and open it as a venue for celebrations.
Carrie’s work is cut out for her. The 150-year-old Greek revival house is in need of serious repair. Her sister, Melanie, tries to bully Carrie into returning to Seattle, predicting “her little project” is doomed to fail. Finally, Carrie’s health gives out on her, requiring emergency surgery.
But she will not give up. Carrie’s unique gift allows her to build relationships with the mansion’s ghostly occupants, especially Maj. Tom Gentry, the handsome Civil War soldier who died 100 years before Carrie was born.
Will Carrie finish restoring the celebration house or will it finish her? And how can she plan a future with a man who has only a past?

    I would give this book a grade of 75% B-. It was ok, but from the beginning I knew pretty much what the end would be. I did like it in the sense that it did not have anything that bothered my moral values, was not vulgar and did not take the Lords name in vane. I’ve read more exciting books that suited my values. Sadly they seem to be hard to come by. Thanks!
  • Love it

    I really enjoyed this book. I was hoping for the relationship between Carrie and her good looking ghost Tom to develop more than it did. There wasn't as much Interaction between them as I would have expected. So, I felt a little disappointed with that part of the story. Hopefully, the author will develop that more in the next two books. The characters seemed so real, and I could picture Stratton house as if I were looking right at it! I will definitely read the entire trilogy.

    This was a wonderful book. It was a good story, great characters and I loved it. What I really liked there were no murders, and no raunchy language; just likable people in believable situations. Well done Annette.
