When Claire Linden's job sends her to the sleepy town of Gull Harbor, she never expects to encounter her ex-boyfriend. As a medium, the prospect of tackling a haunted house is less daunting than seeing Max Baron again. Throughout their passionate college relationship, he promised to love her forever. Then, without explanation, he abandoned her on graduation day. Max never intended to break Claire's heart - a cruel ultimatum forced him to disappear from her life. While he's shocked to find her in Gull Harbor, he isn't surprised by the bitter resentment she feels for him...or the fiery attraction that remains between them. Claire is determined to rid her temporary home of its aggressive ghost, but Max soon realizes she's facing a danger beyond the paranormal. When Claire risks everything to help a desperate spirit, Max must race to save her - before another tragedy tears them apart forever.

ABOUT THE NARRATOR -
Kristin “KJ” James was born and raised in the Nashville, TN area. Acting has always been a passion of hers. Starting on the stage as early as preschool, KJ pursued her passion into college where she received a BA in Communication with a double emphasis in Theatre and Public Relations from Mississippi State University. After college she found herself more and more drawn to voice overs. Several classes, coaching sessions, seminars, research, and a closet-turned-studio later, and she now records and produces audiobooks on a regular basis. She has also done several radio commercials for clients such as Advance Financial, TriStar Health, and GAC. Her ultimate dream is to work in video games and animation, so hopefully in the not-too-distant future you'll hear her in an RPG or cartoon. When she’s not in her booth, you can find her crocheting, playing video games, or running agility with her dog, Phoenix.
MY THOUGHTS -
I would describe this as a romance first and a ghost story second. I would prefer it to be the other way around, but I still thought this was a good entertaining read.
Also the ghost parts were a little too normalized for my tastes. It made it seem like a haunted house was an every day occurrence, no big deal, so we have a ghost happens all the time. It wasn't very suspenseful or spooky. But if you like romance/love stories with a touch of paranormal then this is a great book for you to read. It is very easy reading easy flowing with good strong character development. It definitely was enough to keep my interest all the way to the end.
Audio- I thought the narrator did a fine job. She had a good voice, and I thought it was read very well. I would listen to more stories by this same narrator.
A good solid romance with a touch of paranormal - good for a quick summer read ... or listen!
