Overview

From international bestselling author Colleen Gleason comes a new take on the modern gothic. In the tradition of Antoinette Stockenberg and Barbara Michaels, a romantic suspense novel with supernatural elements.

When Fiona Murphy inherits a small antiques shop from an old man she met only once, she's filled with surprise, confusion and delight - and a little bit of terror at having a new responsibility in a life she prefers to be free and easy.

As she takes over ownership of the quaint shop, odd things begin to happen. Lights come on and off by themselves, even when they are unplugged...and there is a chilly breeze accompanied by the scent of roses even when the windows are closed.

Gideon Nath, III, is the stiff and oh-so-proper attorney who helps settle Fiona's inheritance, and despite her quirkiness and fascination with all things New Age, he finds himself attracted to this fun, sexy woman.

After she finds an unpleasant surprise in one of the shop's closets, scares off an intruder in the store, and uses her skill at palmistry to read Gideon's future--of which she appears to play a part--Fiona begins to realize that her free and easy life is about to change...whether she wants it to or not.

    Couldn't put it down!

    LOVED this new book from Colleen Gleason. It had just the right amount of suspense, mystery, and romance that I couldn't put it down! The romance between Fiona and Gideon kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it would play out. I laughed, yelled, and even cried at a few points during the development of their relationship. I loved the mystery of the The Lamp - it was just the right bit of spooky for me. Great book to curl up with on a rainy day and read straight through.

    Contemporary Gothic-spooks, thrills, and true love!

    This was a delightful book for a lazy summer day! Fiona and Gideon are truly wonderful characters, made for each other though they seem to be opposites at first. You can't help but root for them as you watch their relationship develop and grow into love. The grandparents are fun, the spooks sufficiently spooky, and Gretchen and the shop itself are wonderful characters in their own right. Plus, it's way less expensive than a movie ticket! You really can't go wrong, add this to your downloads today.

    I Also Recommend:

    Dharma and Greg with ghosts!

    Loved the relationship between the hero and heroine--it was very Dharma and Greg. Good ghost story, great romance. Very emotional. Nice suspense.

    Love Barbara Michaels, and this is along those same lines, although the romance is more prominent.
