In November I attended an event called Readers & ‘Ritas where I got to meet several authors.  Another author I met was Wendy Markham, or perhaps also known to you as Wendy Corsi Staub.  I remember about a year or so ago when I realized these were the same people, no wonder I liked all of the books!

Anyway, Wendy graciously sent me this book to read and review….and it did not disappoint!



  • The old diner serves sushi.
  • The stay-at-home moms drive Hummers.
  • The only house you can afford is haunted.
  • Your new neighbor is your unrequited high-school crush. And he’s still hot.

Fed up with her moody teenage daughter, Meg Addams decides what they both need is a good dose of suburban wholesomeness. But when they leave Manhattan behind for Meg’s humble blue-collar hometown, they find it crowded with wealthy strangers and upscale boutiques. Settling into a creaky fixer-upper, Meg finally spots a familiar face right next door–and it belongs to none other than Sam Rooney. The would-be love of Meg’s high school life is now a single dad, her daughter’s new soccer coach-and a neighborly ghost-buster whenever things go bump in the night. With three kids and an undeniable attraction between them, Meg and Sam are in for some heart-racing, wee-hour encounters that have nothing to do with spirits…but everything to do with hearts.



As I mentioned above, I have never been disappointed by anything I had ready by Wendy, so I am happy to report that I enjoyed this book just as much!  I liked the ghostly interactions, or maybe I should say interference?  It added a nice twist once you found out the details…don’t want to say too much as to spoil it!  The characters were solid but with enough baggage to make it interesting!  There has to be some baggage when you are talking about divorced or widowed characters with children!

All in all I give it 4 1/2 paws up, definitely pick it up if you are in the mood for a light-hearted romance novel.
