In order to fully inherit a millionaire’s fortune, Allie Knowles must survive a month on her property—easier said than done when the enormous house is haunted by a violent ghost who claims to know Allie. But the true mystery lies with Cole Kinsley, the handsome groundskeeper. Cole and Allie have never met, though he’s been driving her wild in her dreams for years. Yet now, every effort to get closer to him pushes him further away…
Cole has only ever loved one soul and that love has endured for
centuries. Now that soul rests within Allie’s body and it takes
everything in his power not to confess the truth. For her presence has
put them both in mortal danger. Racing against the clock, Allie will
have to break the ghost’s curse—or history will be doomed to repeat
itself. @ goodreads
The cover of this book is beautiful, but don't let that fool you. Even
though it's listed as a paranormal romance, it's not all about romance.
We have one evil, nasty arse looking ghost up in the manor trying to
kill certain people from some curse that has been going on for decades.
(Allie) Knowles inherits Ava Rollins huge manor and money when she
passes away. Allie was just living a simple life with her mom and family
in Whispering Pine, NC when this happened. Now she is rich beyond
reason, having to fight off a ghost and in love.
Cole Kinsley is
one of the workers of the mansion and Allie and Cole are madly in love.
No, it's not the insta-love, although I thought it might be at first.
Before Allie even met Cole she was having dreams about him. It turns out
it's a centuries-old love, but I won't give out that spoiler.
is funny and a spitfire. She does do things at times that make you want
to smack her but that's the way it goes. She made a funny comment when
she got there upon meeting the family vultures that had descended to see
if they were going to get anything out of the will. She said, "The last few family members could have scared flies off a shit wagon." I loved it...only in the South right :)
story unfolds and she finds out about the ghost and curse. She has to
try to break this curse with the help of Kaitlyn and Shelby. There are
things in the book from time to time that irritated me, the get on with
it kind of thing. But I think overall the book was really good. I like
the idea of the premise. Did I mention there was a shape-shifter in the
midst too? :)
I would like to continue on with the series as it comes out.
