Caitlin King can’t believe that her shopaholic cousin actually bought two ghosts off of eBay. But she can’t ignore the truth when she starts seeing sexy Liam O’Reilly, who’s been dead for over a hundred years. He’s a fascinating specter, and the more time Caitlin spends with him, the closer they become—sending them both spiraling into a star-crossed tailspin. No matter how desperately they long for each other, there’s just no future with a guy who’s already stopped breathing.
In order to help Liam and his twin sister, Anna, leave their earthly limbo and cross over into the light, Caitlin must find the ghost of Anna’s fiancé. But a malevolent spirit is dead set against Anna moving on. Now Caitlin will have to unravel the mystery surrounding the twins’ past lives in order to keep Liam’s spirit safe—even if it means sacrificing her heart in the process.

Loved it all the way through until the very end. Stupid ending.
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review* I found myself intrigued by this story line--buying ghosts on eBay? What a concept. When Caitlin's cousin orders two ghosts on eBay, one never arrives, but the other one connects with Caitlin (Cat). Through various events, it comes out that Liam, the ghost, is the twin brother of a girl who died on her wedding day and is desperately trying to find her one true love, which leaves a mystery to solve. There are a lot of interesting and creative elements to the story that are fun. Cat isn't a consistent character. She's a virgin, yet she purposely dresses provocatively, especially on first dates, which leads to mixed signals. She also claims to be falling in love with Liam, but she's very flirty with another man in his presence--multiple times. Cat also comes across as being very spoiled and entitled. I love it when she starts climbing out of her self-absorbed world. On the other hand, Liam is old for his age, having grown up in a different era. So much in the world is new, but he's very adaptable, committed, a true gentleman, and loyal. I liked his character and enjoyed watching him quickly figure our way of life out. I enjoy a story that unfolds before my eyes, instead of just informing me of events and there were glimpses of showing here, but most of it is telling. That said, I did enjoy the moments with mystery and action and enjoyed the way the characters went about solving things. The ending is great! Content: This book is technically clean (not squeaky clean), as no sexual events occur, but only moderately, as there's a lot of innuendo--talk of sex, being a virgin (or not), and other things that have to do with these two points; some mild violence; a fair amount of seances, Ouija boards, evil spirits, etc; moderate swearing.
Ghost for Sale by Sandra Cox is a humorous, paranormal romance. Caitlin King is eighteen years old and it is the summer before her first year at Virginia Tech. She is living with her cousin, Marcy Van Lier in her families’ guest house. A package arrives for Marcy and it is the ghosts she purchased on eBay. They open the box and one of the vials is broken. Marcy opens the second vial and Caitlin smells cinnamon and lime. She also feels a fiery sensation on her skin. Marcy believes she has been conned and is going to demand the return of her $6,000 ($3,000 for each ghost). A little while later when Caitlin is alone, she hears a voice. She turns around and there is a gentleman. Liam O’Reilly was the ghost in the unbroken vial. For some reason only Caitlin can see and hear him. Liam is stuck in this world because of his twin sister, Anna. Anna O’Reilly was the ghost in the other vial but she escaped somewhere between Virginia and Florida. Anna was killed on her wedding day and she is just desolate. Anna will not move on without her fiancé, William. But some malevolent spirit is keeping the two apart. Caitlin and Liam will work to bring Anna and William together, so the three spirits can move on. But will Caitlin want Liam to move on?
