Megan Barrows has retired from a brief career as a ghostbusting psychic and now uses her sixth sense to fill her Seattle antiques store with objects with happy pasts. After once nearly having the soul sucked out of her by a malevolent spirit, she prefers a quiet life.
Case Lambert is a real estate prospector who restores old houses, then sells them for profit. He has just bought a dilapidated mansion so amazing that he wants to keep it for himself, but the house appears to be haunted. Seriously haunted. A few inquiries lead him to Megan Barrows.
Megan at first refuses to help, but Case is a master of persuasion. Moving into the mansion, they discover that one of the ghosts has a thing for Case -- and there may be even more amorous spirits inside this veritable paranormal vortex. But it soon becomes clear that no one -- dead or alive -- can stop Megan and Case from ending up in each other's arms. . .
I liked the sound of it and took a risk, as i prefer to buy books that already have some feedback, but i was pleasantly surprised. This book is well written, the characters well thought out and there are some truly wonderfully original laugh out loud moments. Theres a bit with a nightgown that i think is priceless. The relationship between the three main protagonists is brilliant, Meg, Case and Eric all have their seperate identities and bounce off each other brilliantly during arguements. As with any ghost based story there is a mystery of a dead body. And i really found myself caring about this one and what had actually happened.
There are a few intense confrontations, some teasing and a few really interesting settings. It's definitely worth buying.
There are only two haunted house stories that i prefer over this one and they are both from two of my all time favorite series (i.e. already have established characters and themes). So taking all that into consideration i give this five stars.

A spooky haunted house owned by a studly man, he needs a medium to help him rid himself of the ghosts. Naturally he finds a pretty medium, and the usual formula book for today's 20-30 somethings ensues. Raging hormones, lusty thoughts (the hero sees the heroine as dessert, the heroine ogles the hero as sumptuous eye candy), two minutes after meeting one another, they are both thinking condoms and the fastest route to the nearest bed, oral sex being, naturally, the prerequisite if a handy condom is not available. True love blossoms (how could such a promising start fail?). Because I am not of the 20-30 something generation, I find it all just a little tawdry, shallow, and a bit of a yawn.
So, Lisa Cach has now officially joined the MaryJanice Davidson, Katie MacAlister, Amanda Ashley, Lyndsay Sands, Lori Foster, etc. club. All very successful authors, all bestsellers, all pretty much interchangable.
Read it, forget it, go on to the next "romance", it should be listed on the top of the NYT bestseller list or the bargain bin of your nearest used book store.
Megan Berrows is not longer pursueing a career as a psychic because of a bad experience while working with Eric Ramsey. Eric is an electronic ghostbuster who works with a lot of high tech instruments. He knows that Megan is for real and sends Case Lambert to her antique shop to try and get her help. Megan has always been able to sense things about the materials she touches.
Case is a real estate developer who has bought an old house he is starting to rebuild. Unfortunately for him there is something going on in the old place. Case is a definite skeptic and only after he has personally experienced a frightening incident does he begin to search for someone to help him find out what is going on. And if possible remove the disturbing elements in the house.
Case and Megan make a deal, if she finds and proves there are spirits causing his problems he will give her 20 pieces of the choice furniture in the house. If Eric can prove a normal reason for the problems she agrees to restore all of the furniture in the house.
After One visit Megan knows she can't loose. She agrees to move into the house with Case and Eric until a conclusion is reached.
From that point on the read is wonderful, a great ghost story, a warm romance and never a dull moment. This is a fast paced story and I enjoyed it.
