I had read several short stories by this author in the "Bad Boy" books. They were so cute, that I decided to pick up a few of the novels she's written on her own. I haven't been disappointed! THe first one I read was "MOUTH TO MOUTH" and I loved it. THe second one is "A DATE WITH THE OTHER SIDE." She's very quickly become one of my favorite authors with her laugh out loud humor, sticky situations, sexy characters and brusque style. In this particular book, she has a female ghost tour guide falling for a corporate guy from Chicago that learns to appreciate small-town life. There are a few poltergeists thrown in for good measure and a gramma that says what's on her mind. This book had me from the first three pages, and it was hard to put it down. When it comes to romantic comedy, nobody does it better.....

Love me a book where I am smiling for the first 40 pages! Erin McCarthy has her quirky way with a cute story of an uptight city slicker plopped into a down home small town. The haunted house he is renting is the least of his problems because Shelby has come alive with passion, finally! Another satisfying and fun read! 4 stars

This book is not only sexy, it is hysterical. Love & ghosts. Shelby & Boston are a great match up. Throw in her ex & ghosts and you have another great McCarthy book. I can't get enough of her books. They just get better & better.

Cute and fluffy romance, exactly what I've come to expect from chick lit without being dull or a duplicate of the other stuff I've read by her.

This was a cute read with some steamy love scenes. I did find the hero a bit stuffy at first, and was slightly irritated with some of the heroine's "hang-ups", but McCarthy wraps up the story with a big "feel-good bow" at the end. I'll definitely check out book 2 in this series... Danny's story. (He deserves to find someone now!)

I just finished this book and leaves me wanting more from Cuttersville! I love how the hauntings push and prod the characters together in spite of themselves. This was a great weekend read when I wasn't feeling well. The book is sexy and funny. Enjoy!

Enjoyable book about a small town girl falling for a big city man. Funny and light-hearted with great secondary characters. I liked it well enough to order the sequel.

Great story of a lovable small town girl and big city business man. Reminded me of Charlaine Harris and the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I kinda found myself wishing and hoping for more paranormal happenings and ghosts about the story. But, the love story and the steamy intimate scenes made me feel as though I shouldn't be reading this book poolside, but rather in my bedroom. It was womderful!

The perfect contemporary romance. The first few pages, I laughed so hard tears were running down my face! Then 150 pages later it gets wonderfully steamy. Adorable characters, small town setting, with a few ghosts thrown in. What more could you want?

I was a bit skeptical of the description of this romance, but it sounded too cute to pass up. Its light-hearted "hauntings" make the perfect back-drop for a mismatched couple... sweet and sassy brain candy!

This is the story of Shelby Tucker, country girl, who meets Boston Macnamara, city boy. They fall in love, experience some ghostly beings and then must decide whether or not love is worth compromise. Cute, but definitely "fluffy," with some typical McCarthy sensuality. Quick read.

Shelby has chosen a life of simplicity in a small town and the only income she can drum up is creating a haunted house for the surrounding locals to tour. Problem is on one tour a real ghost turns up in one of the bedrooms for all the tour to see. After that her life was never the same and the tour business grew expotentially as well as the problems with the ghost/no real ghost...delightful read.

from the back cover:

In the three years that Shelby Tucker has been leading tour groups through the haunted houses of Cuttersville, Ohio, she's never caught a glimpse of a ghost. But she does get pretty startled when she waltzes into the bedroom of a supposedly vacant cottage and stumbles upon a sexy, hot-blooded, naken man...

This is no ghost, though. This guy is solid as a rock. Bad boy Boston Macnamara is renting the so-called haunted cottage... and he's about to shake things up in good ol' Cuttersville. At least for Shelby, who's never been so hot and bothered before. And especially if some feisty matchmaking spirts have their way...

Wasn't my cup of tea. More like a harlequin in softcover format. But fun and light, certainly.
