Overview

She’s running from who she is…

All Jules Scott wants is to live a normal, quiet life—preferably one that doesn’t include ghosts. Jules’s talent for communicating with the dead has brought her nothing but trouble. Despite her best efforts, needy spirits always find her and draw her into their otherworldly drama. When one implicates her in a series of deadly crimes, she may need to entrust her secrets to the person least likely to believe her…

He’ll do whatever it takes to catch her.

Detective Seth English can’t get distracted from the big case he’s working on, not even by his alluring new neighbor. He doesn’t believe that Jules had anything to do with the string of robberies-turned-murders that he’s investigating, but when she keeps showing up in all the wrong places, his gut tells him she knows more than she’s letting on. To solve his case, he’ll need to expose what the sexy redhead is hiding—no matter how impossible the truth may be…

Juliana Scott has just moved back home to Tidewater, Va., to get away from the sense of overwhelming pain and fear she felt in the big city—all due to her unasked-for ability to talk to the dead. Cities draw large numbers of the departed, all of them vocal and needy. Tidewater is small and sparsely populated, so it’s a shock when Jules is visited by a very strident, angry, newly deceased young woman who wants something from her. The visitation pushes Jules into the arms of Det. Seth English, her neighbor, in a disastrous series of slapstick-worthy errors and misunderstandings. Behre’s exuberant debut paranormal romance is lighthearted and easygoing, with a slow-moving subplot that promises to spark future books. Agent: Cascade Literary Agency. (Mar.)

Losing your keys and being lured by ghosts is no excuse for climbing through the window of your sexy cop neighbor's apartment. Yet when Juliana Scott does just that, still dressed from her college reunion "Pimp and Ho" costume party, Det. Seth English naturally assumes the worst. But Jules has more problems than one hot cop. Not only is she haunted by the dead, but when a mix-up and a murder put her under police suspicion and set a killer on her trail, she is forced to rely on the skeptical Seth. A psychic heroine wary of sharing her secrets, a pragmatic hero determined to learn whats she's hiding, and a plethora of secondary characters (dearly departed and otherwise) combine in a lighthearted yet spine-tingling turn that is just plain fun. VERDICT Lively, funny, and fresh, this engaging debut novel is just the thing for readers who want their mystery thrillers with a ghostly twist and an offbeat sense of humor. Behre lives in King George, VA.
