Must Love Ghosts, Book 1
Synopsis: Haunted? Call 1-800-GHOST-HUNK.
Tia McGarry believes love is nothing more than a biochemical cocktail, and she’ll have the research to prove it—as soon as she and her calm, stable, almost-fiancé land a research grant.
Her biggest mistake, bad boy ex-boyfriend Dec Mancini, is firmly in her past. But when the ghost of her long-dead great-uncle moves into her living room, Dec is the only paranormal investigator with the skills to get rid of him.
Dec is used to scorn and ridicule, but he never quite got over Tia’s refusal to believe. With irrefutable proof that ghosts exist manifesting in her house, he can finally earn respect for his profession—and maybe find common ground for himself and Tia to rebuild on.
Tia can’t deny their crazy, chaotic chemistry is strong as ever, but as the ghost’s pranks threaten to put her grant out of reach, she must decide which is the greater risk: letting a ghost jeopardize her career, or falling in love with the man who could destroy her safe, stable life.
Warning: Contains lovesick ghosts wreaking havoc, an absent-minded professor with a repressed wild side, and a hunky paranormal investigator who’s decided the best place to start rebuilding is in the friend zone.
Review: When I started the book, I was very surprised to see that the story had only a hundred of pages. I expected a long novel but it’s true that it’s also nice to have shorter stories to read them in one go. It must be said that the theme is really appealing: ghosts? How not resist to that! But it is true that in the end I have not really been able to hold on to the whole…
Tia is a young woman who believes only about rational and scientific facts, but when she is confronted in with her ex, a paranormal investigator, she is once again rather doubtful about his capabilities. But when her dead uncle appears at home and threatens her career as well as the grant she expects for her research, our heroine is not very happy. Oh not at all. Forced to team up with Dec to get rid of her uncle, their irresistible attraction is reborn and the girl will have to decide what she really wants.
It was an interesting story even if it’s pretty basic but I confess that, as I said, I couldn’t really get into it. I’m not saying that this is not good but I think I expected a little more from it. Not a lot of things and at the same time everything happens fast enough that I could not really appreciate the characters or the story. However, I’m sure the book will appeal to many others.
