Better Homes and Hauntings by Molly Harper

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.

My review:
Molly Harper has been on my auto-buy list since I first read Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs.  She writes fast paced funny, snarky, sweet and sexy romance.  I have yet to read anything by her that I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed and Better Homes and Hauntings is no exception.  And though I am not a fan of ghost stories this book is more like an adult Scooby Doo story.  I adore the geek love between Nina and Deacon and there is a fantastic set of secondary characters.  For a fun filled romp that will have you laughing out loud read this book.
