“And throughout the book the author weaves the story of Mina and Rory, brought together through a love of music, torn apart for years by a simple misunderstanding, only to be thrown back together by fantastical circumstances.” Amazon reader – Four stars

FINALIST: Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Romance – On The Far Side

FINALIST: 2016 Beacon Contest

Rory O’Brian is a man haunted by his past—by the best friend he couldn’t save, the enigmatic woman who slipped out of his grasp, and his former life as a rock star. Now he has a real specter to deal with. The ghostly apparition of a teenage fan visits Rory late at night, bringing with her bone-chilling warnings that send him and his tiny pooch, Pierre, running from his newly-purchased home. With his perfect pad now more Amityville than the ideal relaxed crib he imagined, he calls in the professionals.

Mina Johnson comes to his aid like a knight in shining armor. Or shiny lip gloss. As the founder of Spiriod, a paranormal investigation agency, she’s the perfect person to help Rory with his mysterious ghost girl. At least, she would be, if she weren’t also the woman who spent one glorious, mind-bending night with him years ago, unintentionally breaking his heart in the process.

The former lovers must put aside their lingering feelings to unravel the mystery of ghost girl before a terrible force is unleashed unto the world. As they spend more time together, it becomes apparent Mina is not only the perfect person to help Rory exorcise the literal ghosts in his house, but to help him battle the demons of his past.
