This is my first Deborah Simmons book but definitely not the last. Short summary of the story: Abigail Parkinson has inherited a country mansion that she intends to sell so she can buy a small cottage to live in. But a ghost is driving away all the prospective buyers, so she calls in Christian Reade, who has a reputation as a ghost hunter. As Christian conducts his investigation into the haunting, he and Abigail begin to fall in love. Christian suspects that there is a person behind the haunting, and that it is connected to a treasure that is supposed to be hidden somewhere in the house or grounds. But proving it and catching the perpetrator is going to be hard work, especially when all he wants to do is win the heart of the delectable Abigail. The book is well written and funny, the mystery gripping and Christian and Abigail and their budding relationship believable. The house Abigail has inherited is large, gloomy and mysterious and full of hidden passages and rooms, just the sort of place you would believe to be haunted. All in all, this is a delightful romantic mystery.
