Synopsis: An eastern wind carries more than dust and ashes; it uproots secrets and everyone knows that once one secret is told, no secret is safe. Laine’s haunting secrets--the estrangement from her husband—the unknown body laying in her grandfather’s coffin—the sudden and strange appearance of a difficult ghost—take her to the tiny town of Rose Arbor, her grandfather’s hometown and the place of her grandmother’s death.
As Laine unravels the mystery of her grandparents’ marriage she is forced to face one more question of the heart—Can love live even after it has died?
Kristy Tate, author of Stealing Mercy, returns with another story laced with romance and intrigue.
Review: Laine is dealing with a lot of loss right now – her grandfather has died and she’s separated from her husband. When her grandfather’s body disappears and she’s seeing the ghost of her grandmother, Laine knows it’s time to reveal the long buried secrets. These secrets take Laine to Rose Arbor, the town in which her grandfather was born and raised…
I was delighted by ‘A Ghost of a Second Chance’, the characters and the beautiful setting of Rose Arbor in Washington State made the story come to life. I wasn’t too big of a fan of Laine’s in the beginning, but she grew on me. I do understand in all relationships there are secrets, stubbornness and misunderstandings. I enjoyed the uncovering of Laine’s family secrets and how it helped her to reflect on people and situations in her present life. Sometimes we don’t know what we had or what we truly wanted until we lose it. Ms. Tate has written a great romance, mystery, and ghost story rolled into one and has proven there is always the possibility of a second chance.
