Welcome to Mystic, Texas, where the past stays alive in more ways than one.
Vanessa Power, a budding Indie Romance author, believes the town is calling her name, being the new life and fresh start she’s craving. She’s met an amazing group of women who have a regular book club, reading only Indie Authors. Unfortunately, her new house is in worse shape than she thought and holds more mysteries than she’s prepared for. And then there’s the handyman.
Linc Ward holds more mysteries than her house and the town combined, with a past he won’t reveal in a package which is built for nothing short of sin.
Linc is captivated by his new boss, the only person in town who will give him a job, but only because she doesn’t know he’s an ex-con. Can he keep his past locked away, while at the same time indulging in his fantasies with the pleasantly curvy and deliciously sexy Vanessa? Probably not.
They are both looking for a new start in life. Will they be able to find it together? Or will something sinister keep them apart?
Warning*** This book contains one completed arc of the main characters, but the overall mystery remains unsolved for future books in the series. Some stories weren't meant to be told in one book.

Vanessa made a tough decision to purchase a house without physically seeing it while moving away from her dad and her ex-boyfriend. What Vanessa didn’t count on was the house she purchased to be a real fixer-upper with an attractive handyman helping her with the renovations. Linc feels that he committed a terrible act and although he paid the price in prison, he feels that everybody still holds him accountable. Linc carries the past with him on his shoulders and can’t seem to forgive himself. This has him battling with the feelings he develops for Vanessa. This book is simply amazing!!!!!! It has been a while since I have read a book that brings all the “feelies”. There were moments I wanted to laugh with and at the characters, cry for the heartache, reach through the book and strangle them for being stupid and other times I had to smile at the happiness that they found, snicker at the silly things they put themselves through and then wanted to smack one character for being a deceitful little liar. Mingled throughout the book is “ghosts” that like to pull pranks and push things in the direction that they want things to go. You never know when one might appear or what it will do. The whole town knows of the ghosts but for a newcomer you would think you are going a little looney. Once I started reading the book I couldn’t put it down until I finished the whole thing. I LOVED this book and can’t wait to read the rest of the books in the series. Overall this book was a unique and fantastic read with characters that were real. If you want a book that has some mystery and romance with some paranormal mingled in, then this is the book for you.
