CAROL A. GUY
Paranormal Romance/Romantic Suspense
Rating: 3 Cups
Erica is on the run from her old life. Her husband has just left her for another woman and she has just lost the job she loves. Since her old life is gone, there is no reason to stay in an empty house waiting for the next insult.
Joe Lakota is a park ranger in the Allegheny National Forest. He and his dog Mingo live a somewhat solitary, but peaceful life.
When Erika’s husband leaves her and she loses her job, she gets on a bus to Chicago. A fortuitous breakdown leads her to the town of Spirit Lake where she discovers a seventeen-year old mystery and place for her soul to heal.
The Spirit Lake Inn has secrets that are not revealed yet, but the mystery of the fate of Chenoa Black kept me intrigued. The ghostly visits were well written and the Inn itself a haven for the troubled Erica. I did not understand the Grant character; he seems to be more and more unbalanced as the story goes on and his fate seems unresolved at the end of the book. The relationship between Joe and Erica moves very quickly, but logically and I really liked Mingo the wolf dog. What really happened to Chenoa was a genuine surprise and the ending is a satisfying one.
