She believes in ghosts.

Medium and paranormal investigator Arabella Pierce is sent with her crew to Kingston Cottage, a haunted Maine seafarer’s cottage on an isolated island, but for this investigation, her boss has stuck them with skeptical reporter Lucas Brown. Though he’s hot as they come, Arabella can’t trust a man whose sole job is to discredit her and the work she does. Not after what happened with the last few skeptics...

He believes in evidence.

But Lucas isn’t as skeptical as he seems—he wants the truth, no matter what that is. When the ghosts appear, he and Arabella must work together—in tight quarters—to convince the resident ghosts to move on before a storm strands the entire crew on the island. If Arabella can put aside her prejudices, she and Lucas just might have a shot at a lifetime.

Arabella Pierce has had some bad luck with men in the past - both personally and professionally - and she's very hesitant to trush skeptic Lucas.  Lucas is determined to follow the famous ghost hunting team and prove to his readers if they are the real thing or just more fakes trying to make a quick buck.  He doesn't expect to fall head over heels for the lead investigator, Arrabella.

The story isn't just about Lucas and Arabella though.  It's also about a pair of ghosts that have been searching for a way back to each other for decades.  One of them isn't always so nice in the search and Arabella's team needs to find a way to deal with her or help her move on.

Ghosts of Kingston Cottage was the perfect read to kick off the week of Halloween.  Equal parts ghost story and romance, it had a bit of an eerie feel to it without losing the feeling of romance that ran throughout the entire story.  With happily ever afters all over the place, it was just about perfect.
