The characters in this book are beyond charming — not only is the romance hot and heavy, but the alternate storyline of trying to fit into a world that simply doesn’t believe in the “unbelievable” is extremely touching. The conversations between Jo and her immediate family are laugh-out-loud funny, and the steps that Jo goes through to help these lost souls find peace is highly entertaining.

Beside the word uptight in Webster’s Dictionary is a picture of Wyatt Haines. Wyatt owns a successful chain of resorts across the country, and has just bought a new Victorian inn which, because of the large amount of ghostly activity, he now refers to as the Nightmare on South Elm Street. Jo Banks has seen ghosts since she was 6 years old. Although she’s tried to embrace her oddness, there’s a part of her that will always wish she could just be normal. Now working at Karmic Consultants, Jo arrives to help Wyatt and can actually see the house breathing; there are a ton of young souls in the large home that she must “clear” in order for Wyatt to “clear” a profit. When two children enter Wyatt’s body instead of going to the light, all heck breaks loose. (SAMHAIN, Nov., 272 pp., $15.00)
