Overview

A single mom and her teenage daughter move next to a spooky old house, and the small-town sheriff comes to their aid.

THE GHOST NEXT DOOR
When destiny takes a hand...
You've got to hold on tight.

When single mom Elizabeth Jennings gets sent to a new town to revamp its weekly paper, she resists. Her daughter Claire is just fifteen, and has recently started high school. But Elizabeth's boss insists, so the two pack up and move to the tiny Virginia town, which isn't even on most maps. Their luck goes from bad to worse when they discover the house Elizabeth rented online cozies up to an abandoned house. When creepy things start occurring next door, Elizabeth's glad to have the small-town sheriff in their corner. Nathan Thorpe is not just a stand-up guy they can trust, he's cool to have around when things go bump in the night. Elizabeth also learns he's good at holding her tight. And, when she's wrapped in his arms, she becomes afraid of more than ghostly happenings. She fears she's losing her heart.

Like most folks in Blayton, Nathan Thorpe is here for a reason. Only, he didn't fully understand what that reason was until a stunning brunette and her daughter came to town. Nathan's immediately drawn to Elizabeth and feels motivated to protect her and Claire, believing that means shielding them from nonsensical small-town lore. With Halloween approaching, there are rumors swirling about concerning the old Fenton place located across the street from the graveyard, and next to the newer home occupied by the Jennings. Nathan's a calm thinker who can find a rational explanation for almost anything. Yet there are deeper mysteries in Blayton than Nathan can explain. When he learns the truth, will he still be able to hold onto the woman he loves?

What a great storyteller Ginny Baird is!! I thoroughly enjoyed the book. She sure got me with the surprise ending...did NOT see that coming. I emailed Ginny to let her know how much I enjoyed the book and she promptly emailed right back. Very nice woman and a great writer. Don't miss reading this one.

I dont agree with the bad reviews, and I never usually state that on rating boards. But I had to voice my opinion on the bad reviews as I did not think they were accurate at all. the ending was neat and different from any books Ive read which was refreshing. I also did not recall any editing issues that would stand out or bother anyone. And she writes wonderfully, not like a ten year old...I dont know how someone would even come up with that. How could you say that? She is a wonderful writer, her characters and setting descriptive but not overly so. Her character development was also great and gave you a glimpse if each persons true character. I am just a reader that happened upon this book so I hope others will take my word on this as true. This was a great book if you like surprise endings...unique ones and there is a happily ever after! Thanks for a great read!

Loved the book till the end.  The whole story was very good but the ending (to me anyway) seemed a little to fast.  I really wasn't to sure what happened, or am I just slow at understanding what happened at the end?  Other then that, characters were interesting.

Wow - I never saw the ending coming, and you probably won't either. Blayton, Virginia, by the Blue Ridge Mountains, is a sparse area where residents come and go. The newest residents, Elizabeth and her 15-year-old daughter Claire have just arrived and are welcomed by Nathan, the sheriff of Blayton. Relationships form, high school bullies present themselves, the Internet is down, phone communication is rare, and spooky things happen. Everything moves along as expected in a love story, and then everything changes. I was enchanted. Again, wow! [I purchased this story with a gift card received from the author and because I loved The House at Homecoming Cove.]

Kept my interest. Until I got to the end, I thought it might be getting a bit slow. But, it didn't disappoint. Needs editing.
