Lilly has been working hard to restore a beautiful, but rather spooky historic house in Natchez as a wedding gift for her fianci, Matt Starr. He left her at the altar once, and it took everything she had to forgvie him. How is Lilly supposed to survive when he fails to show for their second wedding?

Matts faithful dog convinces Lily that this second disappearance is far different from the first. With the help of her best friend, Matts best friend, and the startling new psychic experiences connected to the Wish Keeper, Lily plans to rescue Matt from foul play, which involves amateur kidnappers, rabid bats and being lost in the wilderness.

A suspenseful plot, two appealing dogs and a unique touch of the paranormal in the form of a Wish Keeper make this Fern Michaels novel swift and pleasant reading. (Apr., 354 pp., $7.99)
