5 STARS This is the second of three books in Seascape Inn series. Well scince I cried in it I have to say I was feeling this story. Was not sure how much I would like this one but I did. Tony the matchmaking ghost is back and so is the townsfolk who we met in the first book. Dr. Bess Cameron is getting divorce really soon even though only lived with her husband one year but seperated 6 years. She was seperated when she got her job at a radio dJ she is psychoiogist and cancells on talk radio her boss lets her know that the owner will let her go when she finds out. Right after that conversation Tony calls the show live and lets everyone know her divorce will be final soon. Tony also talks to her in her head at same time. Bess visits her friendsT.J. and Maggie finally look at seascape painting and feels she has to go their right now. T.J. & Maggie fell in love at seascape inn with Tony's help. John Mystic still listens to his wife radio show and feels concern about the weird telephone call Tony had made. He never wanted the divorce and does not why Bess left him. He has had a case over 6 years ago to find Elise's daughter she thinks was kidnapped but Bess & FBI think she eloped. John has put Elise's case first in his life even over Bess. Elise has been more to a mother for John and she dies and Bess does not even go to funeral. John & Bess fight through their lawyers about who wants what. Bess nothing John wants her to have half. Their Judge is ready to put Bess in jail or pay 10,000 fine. John can't pay it for her. So John follows her up to Maine and Tony starts to talk to him in his mind and fixes Bess car so she can't leave. I can't wait to read the last book next. Hope I don't cry in that one too. I was given this ebook too read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. 12/15/2011 PUB Bell Bridge Books
This is the second book in the trilogy. In this book we meet psychologist Bess and her investigator husband John. The biggest problem here is one that is so ironic. Bess and John are in the process of a divorce. You would think that Bess, as an on air radio psychologist, who gives out advice daily, wold be able to find a way to straighten out her own marriage. You would think that John who has been over zealous in trying to solve a case would have gotten the clues that his marriage was in trouble. But, neither of them did this. For many this may be a sticking point. For me I see it as a way of setting this wonderful story up. I chalk it up to the fact that they were working so hard to keep other people from knowing the truth about them that they were blinded to solutions. John still loves Bess and both of them end up at Seascape Inn. Bess end up there after seeing the painting in a gallery and John follows her to square some things away. Hattie and the townspeople we met in the very first book are there to add the local color and flavor to the book. Of course a lot of this would not have happened if it hadn't been for John, the resident ghost helping things along. After all he is the one who made things known on air during one of Bess's shows about her divorce, something she'd kept secret not only from her listeners but also from her boss. Like the first book, it is packed with emotions and the hope that things will work out for our two main characters. But, as you read you see Bess kicking the whole journey. Will their relationship be healed? This is a book you must read to find the answer to the question, because I won't give it away.
