When his Uncle Mortimer died and left him Hoxne Grange, the family’s Gilded Age estate, Tristan Pryce knew he wasn’t going to have an easy time of it. He was to be the second generation of Pryces to serve as a caretaker for the estate, a way station for spirits on their final steps to the afterlife. The ghosts were the simple part. He’d been seeing boo-wigglies since he was a child. No, the difficult part was his own family. Determined to establish Tristan’s insanity, his loving relatives hire Dr. Wolf Kincaid and his paranormal researchers, Hellsinger Investigations, to prove the Grange is not haunted.
Skeptic Wolf Kincaid has made it his life’s work to debunk the supernatural. After years of cons and fakes, he can’t wait to reveal the Grange’s ghostly activity is just badly leveled floorboards and a drafty old house. The Grange has more than a few surprises for him, including its prickly, reclusive owner. Tristan Pryce is much less insane and much more attractive than Wolf wants to admit and when his Hellsinger team unwittingly release a ghostly serial killer on the Grange, Wolf is torn between his skepticism and protecting the man he’d been sent to discredit.
This book was so good!
It was funny while at the same time it was spooky, kept you on the edge of your seat. I have to say I loved Wolf and Tristan’s characters. You get Wolf who goes around debunking hauntings and Tristan who is snarky but so funny. He sees ghosts and the hotel he owns is where they come when they are ready to pass on and their time is done on earth.
Well the assistants who come with Wolf to debunk the hotel as fake and Tristan as crazy end up causing a serial killer ghost to come after them.
There was so much going on with this ghost and the attraction between these two MC’s I loved it! They way the author wrote these characters had me laughing but also hoping for the best for them because you could really feel the attraction between these two from the start. You also meet different characters like Wolf’s mom and the ghost dog.
All together I loved this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!
