THE BARGAIN starts out great, it's funny, sexy and has an intriguing premise. Because he has a serious scientific mind, the hero's services have been requested to find the culprits behind a very annoying ghost. Ariel is also determined to unmask the ghost because it has been rumored it may be her recently deceased Mom's spirit and she wants to find out the truth behind her Mom's death. It's not long before these two bump into each other, get locked in a cupboard together, experience all kinds of new tingly feelings and decide that two heads are better than one and join together to complete their investigation. Even though THE BARGAIN did have it's humorous moments, and the heroine was very likable, the plot moved too slow and it was not an emotional read for me.
