Andie Miller is ready to move on with her life. She wants to marry her fiancé and leave behind everything in her past, especially her ex-husband, North Archer. But when Andie tries to gain closure with him, he asks one final favor of her. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans who have driven away three nannies already, and things are getting worse. He needs someone to take care of the situation, and he knows Andie can handle anything....

When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared. Carter and Alice aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. Complicating matters is Andie’s fiancé’s suspicion that this is all a plan by North to get Andie back. He may be right because Andie’s dreams have been haunted by North since she arrived at the old house. And that’s not the only haunting....

Then her ex-brother-in-law arrives with a duplicitous journalist and a self-doubting parapsychologist, closely followed by an annoyed medium, Andie’s tarot card–reading mother, her avenging ex-mother-in-law, and her jealous fiancé. Just when Andie’s sure things couldn’t get more complicated, North arrives to make her wonder if maybe this time things could just turn out differently....

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aqsa | 2/19/2014

    " Once again, Jennifer Crusie did not disappoint me. This book consists of the perfect romance of two exes reuniting and some supernatural (ghosts) thrown in. I couldn't put the book down, kept wanting to see what would happen next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 2/14/2014

    " Great book if you are looking for an amusing, interesting story, but have only a few, relatively tired neurons to spare. The characters have enough complexity that you want to know more about them. The use of ghosts adds a bit of tension, but not too much. I'm going to look for this author again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rene' Lorencen | 2/10/2014

    " I had a hard time putting this book down. I liked the characters and wanted to know what would happen next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 1/28/2014

    " I liked this book. I have read a couple of others by Jennifer Cruisie and enjoyed them, but this is my favorite so far. This is a light-hearted romance-ish book with a supernatural twist, but it is not an in-your-face ghost story. It's mostly about a woman facing her issues in her relationships with others, like her mom, her ex-husband (that she still loves and gave up too easily), her in-laws, and two children who have entered her life. This book does not take itself too seriously and the plot moves well, there is no dwelling on the same issues over and over. I read this over a period of a week and probably stayed up too late last night finishing it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BamaGal | 1/20/2014

    " 3.5 Stars...this book showed up on my 'updates' and I thought it looked interesting. Discovered I'd already read it and forgot about it...couldn't have been too memorable... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan Horkey | 1/19/2014

    " Jennifer Crusie is always a fun read. This book is no exception. Clever and a little off-the-wall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandi | 1/17/2014

    " Kept me interested, quick read. If you can get past the ghosts in the story it's a cute story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 m.allen | 1/10/2014

    " It's been a while since I've read a Jennifer Crusie book, but when I saw this at the library I was intrigued. When you have a book that includes a ghost story, an old mansion, two orphans, and a long lost love given another chance...How can you go wrong?? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moira | 1/4/2014

    " I really do enjoy Jennifer Cruise. This one was fun and filled with ghosts. Smart and sassy, Andie made me want to find a haunted house and try adding almonds and cashews to my chocolate chip cookies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ariel | 11/24/2013

    " keep me on edge the whole time, but maybe little more romance would be good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine Lacasse | 8/9/2013

    " It was a fun read, I just love he books, she made me laugh, characters were really adorable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeri | 4/19/2013

    " Charming book. Quick read, predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisa | 4/18/2013

    " This book was a great story. I know just by reading the synopsis of this book that I was going to love it. It was funny and fast paced and I'm sure I'll read it again.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauri | 12/11/2012

    " Entertaining, mindless chic lit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niki Sorensen | 11/5/2012

    " Where does Jennifer come up with these quirky, lovable and not-so-lovable characters? I love how each novel Jennifer writes is not your usual romance story. Maybe this time has a serious dose of romance and laugh out loud moments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Magpie67 | 1/19/2012

    " Just the right amount of paranormal, romance and mystery to the mix! Well done Jennifer, love her stuff! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 12/27/2011

    " romance, haunted house, funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faye Bierbower | 11/26/2011

    " Yet another "sick read". This was an advance reading copy through Shelf Awareness. For all that it is, it was an entertaining read. No difficult plots here! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 11/5/2011

    " It wasn't what I expected, but it was good enough to finish. It was a different type of story, at least what I was used to by Cruise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 thuy | 5/22/2011

    " Creepy ghosts and romance - what more could you ask for? A very fun read by a new to me author. North and Andie are both strong characters. Lots of tension in the book but it's also very funny. Thumbs up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tess | 5/16/2011

    " Entertaining light read ... just what I needed. Made me think, but not overly so. Enchanting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jc | 5/10/2011

    " I'm such a chicken that this book actually freaked me out a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 5/10/2011

    " Everything I already loved about Crusie, with a good dash ghostly mystery thrown in- perfect! All of Crusie's heroines are the same, but it's alright, because they're all adorable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 5/7/2011

    " Charming, though not as funny as my favorites by this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kam | 5/7/2011

    " Great so far I'm Really Enjoying it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 5/5/2011

    " One of her best. Very entertaining! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 5/2/2011

    " This book had a good scary ghost story and a great story of mother/child bonding and love, but I can't in good conscious recommend it because of the language. There was absolutely no need for it, and honestly, it detracted from the story. Why WHY do authors insist on it??! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shaheen | 4/20/2011

    " None of Jennifer Crusie's books have been as fun for me as _Welcome to Temptation_ - maybe the rest have all been too similar! "
