I received a copy of this book for an honest review for MNP.
Claire had a much needed job located in Gull Harbor as a medium. Little did she know she would run into the only love of her life while
trying to figure out whose spirit was trapped into the house? Claire has to figure out what happened to Maria and how she got there. But little
did she know that she would be digging up old secrets including her own. Claire and Max had known each other since college when he
tutored her in Economics. Once Max has graduated from college, he disappeared the next day. Five years later they ran into one another
at the diner and their relationship has begun again.
Kathryn Knight does a wonderful job setting the scene of the story. She shows the relationship that is being built with Maria and Claire, but
also between Claire and Max. I enjoyed getting lost in the love story but also finding out what happened to Maria.

GULL HARBOR is an entertaining romance built around a compelling paranormal suspense. Claire’s trouble childhood, in no small part due to her ability to communicate with ghosts, was contrasted with the real love and acceptance she got from Max in college. She’s never understood his leaving and really doesn’t understand his anger at her now. Claire works to win the ghost, Maria’s, trust but can she and Max find their trust of one another too? Claire finally realizes that the ghost speaks a different language while in typical star-crossed lover fashion, she and Max might as well be. Day by day, Claire gets closer to the ghost and to Max. The parallels continue as Claire and Max fall back into past hurts, mistrusts, and misunderstandings and Claire refuses to allow Maria access. In both cases, Claire cannot face the pain. The tensions are heightened with the additional stress of a situation with her father and comatose mother and when a killer targets Claire. Knight does a good job of setting up all these situations and resolving them until we finally get our Happily Ever After.
This book was received by MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE from the publisher for an honest review.
HEAT RATING: Mild: Mild detailed scenes of intimacy, mild violence or profanity.

Claire Linden is a medium. Her job brings her to the small town of Gull Harbor to rid a home of an aggressive ghost. When she heads to the local diner she never dreams her ex would be there.
Max has put down roots in this town. Claire has a lot of resentment and anger towards Max due to him promising to love her forever and then graduating college and leaving her with no explanation. Of course their feelings are still there and need to be dealt with before either can be happy.
All three main characters Dan, Max, and Claire are amazing characters. They all felt like friends. People I would want as neighbors and friends. Claire has to be my favorite. Whole I do not envy her medium skills, I loved learning about her talent and watching her patience and understanding when dealing with a rather difficult ghost.
As in Kathryn Knight's first novel , Silver Lake, I could not stop reading. This was a two day read for me only because I could not keep my eyes open any longer.
The fear I felt for Claire was real. I was amazed at how she was able to stay calm and not run away scared. Thank God Max and Dan were there to ease her shaken nerves. Although the other inhabitants of Gull Harbor left a lot to be desired , not even welcoming her to the town, I could understand why they stayed back. A medium is a unknown to most.
Once again, I will happily recommend this book to everyone. It has romance and paranormal my most favorite things to read of.
