Janine Hartshorn left David Bairstow for a man who abandoned her once he discovered she was pregnant with his child. A miscarriage almost ended her own life. Now she and David are reaching for a second chance.

But something is determined to keep them apart. Something with the power to conjure of ghosts from David's past and make them real. Something Janine knows from her near-death experience...

This book was awful. This is one of those books that make me say, "if he can get published, I surely should be able to!" The story idea wasn't bad and the style of writing was okay, but the execution was terrible. So many pages devoted to filler!! It's a ghost story/horror novel; do we really need exposition about the various pros and cons of Boston neighborhoods? Do we really need to know what everyone in a scene is wearing, where everyone is eating, and what each is eating and drinking? How does this contribute to the story? Filler, filler, filler. As a rule, I don't skim books, but I did this one to finally get finished with the thing. The only reason I didn't throw it against the wall is that I had a personal vendetta against it and wanted to see it through to the bitter end.

Well, I didnt like it as much as the first book I read by him, but it still was good. Hard to believe in the premise of it, but if you got around that, the story was fine.
