Synopsis: Hiring an exorcist is not something widowed single mom Holly Archer ever thought she’d do. But the blackouts she’s been having mean someone—or something—is hijacking her body and she wants it stopped, like yesterday.
The hottie who shows up at her door is the first man who’s sparked her interest since her awful marriage. It’s no hardship to give herself over to his skills, and in short order the spirit is ejected—and Holly comes face to face with Celia, the ghost of her dead husband’s mistress.
Lawe Callahan figured this would be an easy case, and by morning he’d be headed for another town, leaving Holly and her witchy amber eyes behind. Until she agrees to help the ghost, who refuses to budge until her killer is brought to justice.
As the investigation heats up, so does Lawe and Holly’s attraction. But their differences not only threaten any chance of something real, their quest for the truth could drive a killer to tie up all loose ends—permanently.
Warning: Contains a footloose exorcist who doesn’t let grave dirt stick to his feet for long, and a woman who isn’t in a hurry to commune with the dead. A little sleuthing, a little more gettin’ nekkid, and a lotta angst.
Review: THE EXORCIST WHO LOVED ME is the second book in the Must Love Ghosts series, but it stands alone very well. I didn’t feel I missed anything by not reading the first book in the series. Holly Archer’s husband, Paul, recently died…in the same car as his mistress. Now Holly is raising their twins alone and feels as if she’s being haunted by her late husband. Holly hires an exorcist, Lawe Callahan, to get rid of the spirit. When she finds out the ghost is Celia, her dead husband’s dead mistress, she agrees to help Celia find out who murdered her and Paul. Between the danger of the investigation and the heat between her and Lawe, Holly’s all discombobulated. THE EXORCIST WHO LOVED ME is a light-hearted romantic comedy with fun and likable characters.
