4.0 out of 5 stars A spook infested romp!, 29 May 2011

This review is from: The Phantom of the Bathtub (Mass Market Paperback)
After having her reputation ruined by a cad in San Francisco, Miss Viveca Stanhope ups and leaves town and heads all the way South to Savannah. She purchases a house on Hangman's Square, aptly named for it's having been used as a place for public hangings. What she doesn't account for are the spooks and ghosts that are haunting her house, her gardens and her bathtub!

Also she is being constantly harrassed by her neighbour, Maxwell Beecher to sell her the house. The two just rub each other up the wrong way every time they meet, despite their growing attraction. Add to the mix a delightful array of character's from the local busy body 'Queen' Hilda, to the house servants Winnie and Emmett.

The story plods along at a fairly slow pace but it kept me interested enough to keep me turning the pages. Nothing outstanding or unexpected happens although it's a nice story. You might find this book a little tame if you enjoy reading works by Robin Scone or Lori Foster, but there are a few 'warmer' scenes towards the middle and end of the book.

All in all then, this is a fairly decent story with well developed characters. Not your 'Gone With The Wind' but a good romp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steamy Romance with a Haunting Result, 27 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The title intrigued me and it was everything I thought it would be - a fun, steamy romance where a Scarlet O'Hara type meets her match in a southern Rhett Butler gentleman. A disgraced Viveca Stanhope flees San Francisco after the death of her father and purchase a house in Savannah only to find the square where it is situated as well as the house itself, haunted. As there is no turning back, she finds herself confronted with three strange servants and a house that needs a complete overhaul and a next door neighbor who wants nothing more than for her to be gone. So is her introduction to Maxwell Beecher, her next door neighbor, the black sheep of the wealth town banking family. Viveca takes an instant dislike to the man who appears to spend his time gambling and chasing women. After Viveca meets the local reverend, Father Aubrey Parish, who just happens to be Max's cousin, and he takes her under his wing to introduce her to the local residents. Viveca and Aubrey strike up a friendship which appears to be leading to a wedding when Max steps in. Max finds he is drawn to Viveca and soon realizes that he does not want his cousin married to her. Needless to say, the battle is on between the two of them. With the interference of the ghosts and then Viveca's past catches up with her, it is enchanting story which finally ends well for all those involved. Well worth the read and I look forward to other books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY ENTERTAINING, FUNNY AND SENSUAL !, 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this as a free read, the title caught my attention, and I love paranormal romance, never read anything by this author before. This was a complete surprise, it was such a different storyline, I absolutely loved it, had to let other readers know how enjoyable I found it. This story has a little of everything, humour, sadness, betrayal, hot sensual scenes, one fiesty, strong young women Viveca and one handsome rake Max, add to that some ghosties and a wonderfull array of characters, made this Highly entertaining. The story was very well written and kept my turning the page to see what was happening next.

Although I was very lucky to get this as a free read, its is worth every penny as a purchase, I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.
