    Oh how I adored Betty, ghostly matchmaker who makes beds, cleans

    Oh how I adored Betty, ghostly matchmaker who makes beds, cleans up and leaves the scent of fresh-baked apple pie in her wake.  She was clever and funny, and provided a series of ‘meetings’ between Missy and Blake to achieve her goal of finding Blake a “nice girl” just for him. 

    Missy was cleverly created as well: dealing with her own grief from the loss of her father and brother.  Her acceptance of Betty, watching movies, chatting, even arranging the kitchen cabinets to make her comfortable was sweet, and Betty became a mother / friend figure for her quite quickly.    

    Blake was more surprising: while claiming to not want a relationship or a connection, his internal battle and questions about the comfort and reactions he has to Missy told a far different story.  His reaction  when he finally does see Betty is sweetly touching: while she thinks of him as a son, he longs for her mothering and the sense of familial acceptance she brought. 

    Fields created a story that was believable with characters who were instantly empathetic and easy to like.  Adding Betty in the mix for some comedic relief, and then as the true heroine when Missy’s life is on the line brought the tension to a climax point, and had both Missy and Blake realizing just what was important.  While their connection and sex was steamy, the emotional revelations and that palpable connection between them was the most satisfying part of this story.  For a quick, short and highly happy read – this book is a winner.  

    I received an eBook copy from the publisher for purpose of honest review for the book tour. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Short, sweet and sexy! Will make you believe!

    He has trust issues. She has very good reasons for steering clear of him. Despite their undeniable physical attraction when they first meet, Missy Prescott and Blake Decker resist opening their hearts to one another. Not if Betty has any say in the matter. What's the harm of a little nudging from a sweet and friendly ghost anyway?

    What an enjoyable addition to the Hauntings at Inner Harbor series! Altered Frequency has less angst than Hereafter, but what it does have is more romance (both heartwarming and steamy kind), charm and a healthy dose of nail-biting suspense! As with her other stories, Joya Fields, makes you care so much for her characters and what happens to them. You just can't help but feel for Missy and Blake and what each have gone through in their lives. You will just adore Betty to pieces! I also loved the Baltimore setting and the details of both their jobs. Blake is a cop and Missy is a late night DJ. All these elements combine to create quite an engaging story!

    Can Altered Frequency be read as a standalone? Absolutely! I definitely place this story in the short-sweet-sexy category.
