 About the Book:

A Love Story
When destiny takes a hand…
You’ve got to hold on tight.

When single mom Elizabeth Jennings gets sent to a new town to revamp its weekly paper, she resists. Her daughter Claire is just fifteen, and has recently started high school. But Elizabeth’s boss insists, so the two pack up and move to the tiny Virginia town, which isn’t even on most maps. Their luck goes from bad to worse when they discover the house Elizabeth rented online cozies up to an abandoned house. When creepy things start occurring next door, Elizabeth’s glad to have the small-town sheriff in their corner. Nathan Thorpe is not just a stand-up guy they can trust, he’s cool to have around when things go bump in the night. Elizabeth also learns he’s good at holding her tight. And, when she’s wrapped his arms, she becomes afraid of more than ghostly happenings. She fears she’s losing her heart.

Like most folks in Blayton, Nathan Thorpe is here for a reason. Only, he didn’t fully understand what that reason was until a stunning brunette and her daughter came to town. Nathan’s immediately drawn to Elizabeth and feels motivated to protect her and Claire, believing that means shielding them from nonsensical small-town lore. With Halloween approaching, there are rumors swirling about concerning the old Fenton place located across the street from the graveyard, and next to the newer home occupied by the Jennings. Nathan’s a calm thinker who can find a rational explanation for almost anything. Yet there are deeper mysteries in Blayton than Nathan can explain. When he learns the truth, will he still be able to hold onto the woman he loves?

*eBook out in August 2013, paperback coming in September!(less)

 My Review:

The Ghost Next Door by Ginny Baird
I was kinda leery about reading this book. I do love a romance book but not too keen on a mystery/ghost story.
This one is a bit different and not that scary. Starts out with Elizabeth Jennings who has moved to the small town in VA, along with her daughter Claire.
Her job is to restore the old newspaper office and put out an edition of the paper for the townsfolk. They move into a house just near a deserted house near a cemetery.
The sheriff Nathan is very helpful in helping her move into the office in town and introducing her to the locals.
They are both single and go for lunch dates and one planned trip to the Shenandoah Parkway. Love this area of the country and have been to the national park there and the countryside is just that, country.
Claire is having a hard time adjusting to the new school and the kids that attend. She seems to have ruffled the girls feathers by going to the harvest festival with Perry. He tells her she has a few choices on how to deal with them.
I love not only the area and the detailed descriptions of the area but that the story is about both of the ladies: Claire's problems and her mothers problems.
The plot thickens for Halloween night and the light goes on to clear up all the mysteries...
There are other characters in the story but the book is very easy to follow along.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Thanks so much for all the follows, will do the same on my end.

I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I was so hoping there would not be a lot of blood and violent scenes as another book I had read this month. It is a very good tale for Halloween.
