Fish and visitors smell after three days. – Benjamin Franklin
For his entire life, Tristan Pryce has been called crazy. When he was young, he started seeing ghosts in his bedroom, on the streets, and pretty much everywhere he went. His parents had no clue what to do with him and after sending him to every doctor and psychiatrist they could find, they still had no answers. Tristan found his own answers while spending the summers and holidays with his Uncle Mortimer at the family estate Hoxne Grange. You see, Uncle Mortimer could see the ghosts too. Tristan feels like he has finally found somewhere he belongs, a true home. When his uncle dies unexpectedly, Tristan and the rest of the family is shocked to find out that he has inherited Hoxne Grange. With money and the family estate on their mind, his family sets out to prove that Tristan is crazy. They hire Dr. Wolf Kincaid and his team of investigators to prove that Hoxne Grange isn’t haunted and to get control of the family estate.
Dr. Wolf Kincaid has made his name by debunking supposed hauntings with his team at Hellsinger Investigations. There isn’t much that makes Wolf angrier than the cons and fakes that he has revealed over time. When the team arrives at Hoxne Grange, Wolf is shocked to find out that Tristan Pryce not only seems nuttier than a fruitcake, but he is also the hottest thing on two legs that Wolf has seen in a while. He realizes that he is going to have to fight his attraction to the man if he wants to finish this job.
When Wolf and his team finish setting up their equipment the first night, they head off to bed only to be awoken an hour later to find all their stuff packed up and ready for them to leave. Tristan denies knowing anything about it, but Wolf is still skeptical. However, after seeing more inexplicable happenings, Wolf just might have to admit this one might not be a fraudulent haunting. When two members of the team inadvertently release a homicidal ghost, Wolf and Tristan have to start working together to save Tristan’s home.
As more truths are revealed by Wolf and Tristan, the two men begin to fall in love, and that pushes Wolf to reveal more about his life and family to Tristan. They are going to have to have faith in one another and fight with everything they have to save Hoxne Grange and their relationship.
Rhys Ford has once again demonstrated her talent. This is a completely different book from anything she has published before and I am completely hooked. The descriptions in this book were simply amazing and really, I could sit here and wax poetically about the reasons I couldn’t put this book down and had to finish it in one sitting. Or, I could just say dayum that was an awesome read. There were ghosts, some good and some not so good, there was a hot leggy blond and a six foot four bear of a man who couldn’t get enough of said leggy blond. But really, this book should be at the top of your TBR pile and if it isn’t, you will feel left out when everyone else is raving about it. Oh and the best part, it’s just the first of the series, so there will be more in this universe and I for one cannot wait.
