About the book: An Anthology
A SAVAGE GHOST
Lia Savage reluctantly puts her dream of opening a dessert boutique on hold to help her dad remodel a castle he’s inherited in Washington State. Soon, a specter targets her younger sister.
Lia enlists the help of strapping Coop Montgomery, the head gardener and her former crush. As they search together for a way to rid the castle of its ghost, the romance she used to dream about with Coop kindles. But Lia’s gentle giant means to stay in Washington while she’s determined to return to California. She must find the courage to face both the ghost and her future.
With Coop. Or without him.
WAVES OF DECEIT
Twenty-six-year-old Shelby Nash wants to break free of her controlling, billionaire father. With the completion of one more project for his company, she can branch out on her own. However, her ex-boyfriend’s been appointed as the new lead architect. She has to find a way to protect her heart from him while avoiding whoever’s making anonymous threats.
Wade Masters did a poor job handling the news about the identity of his girlfriend’s father. Shelby walked out of his life without another word. Finally, four years later, Wade has a chance to win her back. As long as whoever’s targeted her doesn’t get her first.
My review: This book has a couple of stories that were in previous collections by this author. I really enjoyed reading both of them again. Here's a bit about each of them.
A Savage Ghost was awesome! This one really sparked my imagination. Lia is just getting ready to realize her dream of opening a dessert bakery when her family receives a castle as an inheritance, making it so they have to move. Lia goes to help the family get settled in the castle, grudgingly. Only to find when they get there that the castle is haunted. And the groundskeeper is none other than the young man she fell for the previous summer, Coop. This one had some really fun and crazy ghost moments. I loved the whole idea of the family moving into the castle and finding a ghost that seems to want them gone more than anything. And I loved that this one included a second ghost. You'll have to read it to believe it!
Then there's Waves of Deceit. It's about Shelby. She's a young woman who's risen through the ranks of her father's business, but she feels that he doesn't care for her because she's never even met him. That's a bit crazy, but you'll have to read the story to find out just why she hasn't. Her father wants Shelby assigned to his pet project an island resort that seems to be having problems. The catch: she has to work with the young man that spurned her when she was in college, Wade. Shelby has no idea how she's going to be able to work with him, because she still has feelings for him. This book kept me interested and intrigued with a crazy plot including a huge storm, friends who may turn out to be traitors and of course the intrigue of not knowing her father.
I was sent a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
