Better Homes and Hauntings by Molly Harper
Release Date: June 24, 2014
Publisher: Pocket Books
Pages: 318
Source: book provided by the publisher for review



Author of the beloved Half Moon Hollow series of vampire romances (Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs), Molly Harper has created a standalone paranormal romance in which a dilapidated haunted house could bring star-crossed lovers together—if it doesn’t kill them first!

When Nina Linden is hired to landscape a private island off the New England coast, she sees it as her chance to rebuild her failing business after being cheated by her unscrupulous ex. She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate—he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in nineteenth-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo.”

But Nina shows no signs of being scared away, even as she experiences some unnerving apparitions herself. And as the two of them work closely together to restore the mansion’s faded glory, Deacon realizes that he’s found someone who doesn’t seem to like his fortune more than himself—while Nina may have finally found the one man she can trust with her bruised and battered heart.

But something on the island doesn’t believe in true love…and if Nina and Deacon can’t figure out how to put these angry spirits to rest, their own love doesn’t stand a ghost of a chance.

FaceshotHello everyone! My name is Heather and I am currently living in Memphis, Tennessee, although I am originally a North Florida girl. I am married to a military man, we have two beautiful children and one fur baby. I work and take online college classes from home so I spend a lot of my free time reading.

I have my aunt to blame for my crazy reading addiction. As a child, all she would ever buy me and my brother for Christmas and birthdays was books. At the age of 13, I walked up to her on Christmas morning and I told her, “Thanks Aunt Jackie, you turned me into a nerd.” Reading became a big part of my life in middle school because it took me to new places and I experienced things that I would not be able to if I had not fallen in love with reading.

My favorite childhood book was Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. I had my babysitter read it to me every day. Now, I like mystery, suspense and romance with a little science fiction every once in a while. A few authors I enjoy most are Rachel Van Dyken, Dean Koontz, and Marie Hall. Currently, my favorite book is Blood Warrior, which is book 1 of the Alexa Montgomery series by H. D. Gordon. I really like the usual happy ending but it is nice to read books that do not follow the main stream. It makes it seem more like reality.

ElinToday we welcome Elin Hilderbrand to Romancing the Book as part of Women’s Fiction week.  We are very excited to have her guesting with us as she was at the top of our list of authors to host.  Shortly after we did the following interview, I read online about Elin’s diagnosis with breast cancer (read about it here).  Before we get to the interview, the staff here at RtB want Elin to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers.

Elin Hilderbrand does her best writing on the beaches of Nantucket, as well as on the charming streets of Beacon Hill in Boston. She has three magical children who beg her not to sing along to the radio or dance in public. The Matchmaker is her 13th novel.
