I absolutely loved this book!
What a wonderful romance with a little twist.  
Both the characters and setting are detailed and perceptive.
 I would love to live at Homecoming Come and let's not begin with Stone, because he's positively swoon worthy.
The author describes The House on Homecoming Cove so vividly that the first few pages immediately drew me into the story. 
Melissa is a music composer from NY city and some would say she is experiencing burn out, but I choose to believe she needs a new perspective on life.  She is looking to rent a house for a month to work on her music.  Upon her arrival she meets Stone Thomas the grounds keeper, but feels she knows him already. The first morning she meets Captain Jack and learns the history of the house and property.  It's a sad tale of lost love at the turn of the century.  Feeling inspired as never before Melissa makes great head way on her composing, but odd occurrences start plaguing not only her, but also Stone.  Their friendship is conveyed in a very genuine way, but suddenly realize their feelings have developed into something much deeper than a mere friendship.   Stone and Melissa must deal with the past before having a future.
Strong, well developed characters that find things more complicated than they ever imagined. 
A must read.  
This is the third installment in her Romantic Ghost Stories, but this is a stand alone story. This book is full of romance and suspense. The plot flows effortlessly and will keep the reader's attention. As with all her books, this is a clean, feel good romance.  
I would recommend it to anyone.
