1993-09-05 Mass Market Paperback Good 394 pages; spine creases, edge wear; A COTTAGE BY THE SEA: it's a dream come true for Jane Drew. Too bad it comes with a ghost--and a ... soulfully seductive neighbor who would just as soon boot Jane off the island. When you're seriously unattached and recently unemployed, the inheritance of a cottage on Nantucket Island might seem like a really Good Thing. The fact that the house is ramshackle and possibly haunted? Mere details. Jane Drew never actually believed the neighbors' murmurs about her great-aunt being a psychic or a witch, much less a psychic witch. Still, a series of eerie events soon has her convinced that the spirit of a beautiful Quaker is roaming the place, and it seems clear that it will take more than a smile and a wave goodbye to make the spirit leave. If Jane is to move things along, she's going to have to think like an islander. But she's a Boston graphic designer with no experience of the island or its history, and she could use a little local knowl Read more Show Less

Overview

Fans of Nora Roberts, Barbara Freethy and Barbara Michaels will enjoy this humorous and suspenseful story by bestselling author Antoinette Stockenberg ....

A COTTAGE BY THE SEA: it's a dream come true for Jane Drew. Too bad it comes with a ghost -- and a seductive neighbor who'd like to boot Jane off the island.

The inheritance of a cottage on Nantucket Island might seem like a really Good Thing for an unemployed graphic designer. The fact that the house is ramshackle and possibly haunted? Mere details. But a series of eerie events soon has Jane convinced that the spirit of a beautiful Quaker is roaming the place, and it's clear that it will take more than a smiling wave goodbye to make the spirit leave.

Mac McKenzie is descended from generations of hard-working islanders and has very clear opinions of uppity off-islanders. He has little patience for New Age types, moneyed types, and those for whom "antiquing" is a verb. He regards spaghetti as noodles, not pasta, and he drinks water from a tap, not a bottle. And he doesn't believe in ghosts. Period. When he finds himself up against the insistent, persistent, infinitely irritating Jane Drew with her knack for complicating his life, he does what any self-respecting islander would and shrugs her off -- for a while, anyway. But Mac understands, as Jane does not, that not every force is benign ... and not every force is otherworldly.

    Loved It!

    This is a delightful story with enough twists and turns to keep you wanting more!
    The authors descriptions are vivid enough to let you "see" the surroundings and get inside Jane's head.
    If you like plots set in New England you'll love this author!
    Keep them coming Ms. Stockenberg!

    Great twists at an even better value

    Really liked it! She starts to wonder if the paranormal has a part in causing so much havoc just to get attention, so she tries to search the past to find answers. All the while you wonder which guy is truly for her while she tries to restore the cottage her dead aunt leaves her behind. Can she find a buyer for the cottage she desperately needs to sell before her savings run dry or she herself becomes the next death on the island? Just wanted to shed some light on why I was glued to this book without giving too much away.

    Highly recommended

    I absolutely loved this book and couldn't put it down. I am so glad that I found this author. I read all the time and now I am reading Emily's Ghost written by the same author and I can't put it down. Beloved was very well written and entertaining. It is a book you shouldn't miss reading.

    Another good Antoinette Stockenberg book

    Nantucket. A lovely old cottage in need of loving restoration. A beautiful and brave heroine. Three potential love interests. A huge rambunctious dog. And a ghost with a mystery. What more does one need for a lazy summer afternoon read??

    Good mystery lite.

    I enjoy Stockenberg books. The plots are easy stressless fast reading with humor. No bloody murders or gore. Plots are always good with a few twists and turns. I espicially like the New England costal scences the author portrays with her short descriptions. Her characters all become family or people we recognize from our own lives. I could relate to the renovation of this inherited old cottage, all the things that mysteriously were going wrong and her list of suspects. Stockenberg is always a comfortable read for an inside rainy, snowy day or a late fall day out on the deck.

    Wonderful Book!

    I had never heard of Antoinette Stockenberg and was looking for a quick book to read. I down loaded "Beloved" just out of curiosity and found that I loved this book. I wasn't expecting much from it at first but turned out to really enjoy the romance and mystery. The book kept me guessing up untill the end which was a nice surprise because I often guess the ends of predictable books right away but this one blew me away.

    Enjoyable

    The story is intense and captivating, but the characters have so much baggage that seems impossible to overcome. This is a very emotional book with murder and ghosts, divorce and betrayal, but it also has deep love and real life laughter and the push and pull of a "normal" couple who don't always agree, but find their way to compromise.

    A good romance and mystery story as usual from A. Stockenberg. Sometimes the prose was a little stilted, but the plot held my interest thruout. I would recommend to those looking for a romance read.

    A great read! You'll love it.

    The setting is an island in the Northeast. The heroine has inherited a cottage from her Aunt Sylvia. It seems as if there are some ghosts involved. There are two very interesting men there. One is a business man who works on the mainland. The other is a rough, grumpy fellow who will steal your heart before he captures the heart of Jane.
