Megan Barrows has retired from a brief career as a ghost-busting 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 a 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 in to 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.

My 35th read of 2007.

I really enjoyed this read. Personally, I think this was more of a paranormal romantic suspense than a contemporary romance, as the romance actually takes a backseat to the ghost story. And what a ghost story it was! Much heavier than I was expecting, that's for sure. I found myself getting a little spooked while reading this at night all alone! LOL I think it would have been great, though, if at the end of the book Zachariah had escorted Megan down the aisle.

I thought it was weird that more wasn't said about the motto. They translated it (loosely) and discussed it later, but once they figured out what happened and cleaned the house of the ghosts, it was never mentioned again.

By the way, I Googled it and what I found says that Ingenio experior funera digna meo translates directly to "I suffer ruin worthy of mine own invention." I think their new motto should be Cum larvis non luctandum. ("One must not struggle with ghosts.") HA HA HA! :)

Oops, I've had this awhile and never journaled it, sorry guys. I just finsihed it, I thought it was okay. It was a cute little bit of fluff. Nothing too exciting. I will be sending it to Lexilewords soon as part of a trade. I hope you enjoy it.

I received this yesterday from New Jersey via Bookmooch. It's headed to my TBR pile but hopefully not for long.
