Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Widow Helen Evett already has a plateful of problemsshe has her Salem, Mass., preschool to run, two rebellious teenagers and a dotty aunt to look afterso she certainly doesn't need a ghost in her life. The ghostas far as Helen can surmiseis Linda, the recently deceased wife of Nat Brynes and mother of adorable three-year-old Katie. After Linda's apparition gets Helen's attention, with the help of vicious headaches, noises in the night and the overpowering scent of perfume, it sends two cryptic messages: Find out why Linda died; keep Katie safe. But safe from what, or who? Certainly not Nat, Katie's devoted, loving father, with whom Helen is falling in love. Full of charm and wit, Stockenberg's latest paranormal romance (following Time After Time) is truly enthralling.(Aug.)
Library Journal
Practical, widowed Helen Evett is concerned about two thingsraising her two teenage children and running her highly sought-after preschool. She is the last person who would ever have put much stock in the supernatural. A pair of well-matched protagonists, a precocious three-year-old, a relentless ghost, and a conniving nanny combine to produce an engrossing, well-written story that should keep readers captivated to the end. Stockenberg, a popular writer of paranormals (Time After Time, Dell, 1995), won a Rita for Emily's Ghost (Dell, 1992). She lives in Newport, Rhode Island.
