Boston Macnamara feels like he has been exiled when his boss sends him to Cuttersville, Ohio, to inspect the local plant. Deciding to be comfortable during his stay, Boston rents an old Victorian, not realizing that his new house is part of a ghostly tour.

Following her divorce, Shelby Tucker has been gliding through life without much ambition. She runs the Haunted Cuttersville tour and gets quite an eyeful when she comes upon a naked sleeping man on one of her grandmother's properties. Boston is annoyed and perplexed when he wakes to find Shelby staring at him.

Despite their awkward start and their having little in common, Boston and Shelby are undeniably intrigued. When they don't make romantic moves fast enough to suit some, several pesky spirits decide to move things along.

Ghostly matchmakers add a fun flair to this warmhearted and delightful tale. A Date With the Other Side is an amusing and sexy charmer sure to bring a smile to your face. (May, 304 pp., $13.00)
