Hannah Taylor inherits her grandfather’s home in Ohio, but there are strings attached. She must share the house with Police Detective Donovan Kane and his family for a year, and if she doesn’t stay, Donovan gets the house. He’s sure Hannah won’t stay the full year and he’ll end up with the house. She agrees to live with him, but she’s not about to give him her home.
In a letter to Donovan, Grandpa said to “find the diaries, open the house, and send the wandering spirits on their way,” …but nobody expects the old diaries to lead them to a secret staircase, a body buried in the basement, friendly ghosts, and enough love to last a lifetime.
“Don’t be afraid,” Grandpa said in a letter to Hannah.
Afraid of what, Grandpa?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book – it had a few twists and turns that I didn’t expect. Like having an ex coming to stay. The plot of the story was well done and it flowed very nicely.
You have Donovan who is a dectective and all the associated troubles that come with that, and then you also have Hannah, who gave up everything to move into her grandfather’s house.
Put them both together with Donovan’s dad, son and the ghosts in the house and things happen. Finding the remains of a dead body, people trampling through your house while you’re trying to fix it at the same time, leads to all sorts of troubles and finds.
The interaction between all the characters was smooth and believable and the romance between Hannah and Donovan was also great.
I found that once I started, I just wanted to keep on reading it.
I will definitely read the rest of the series.
I give this book a 4 star rating and will recommend it my friends.
