A good mystery with romance, ghosts and tense family interactions. Locale is California; characters are interesting and realistic set in a contemporary story.

The romance was a bit contrived and certainly predictible, but the horror portions were well written and kept me reading- at times with my heart pounding furiously! There were some nice twists in the mystery and an unexpected bit at the end to round out a good book. This is not great book, but a quick read and worth checking out.

Scent Of Roses by Kat Martin is a spell binding, fast paced story.

Elizabeth Conner, a family counselor agrees to help a pregnant and frightened Maria Santiago as a favor to Maria's teenage brother who she counsels. Elizabeth at first thinks what is going on in the Santiago household is just the stress from a soon to be mother. But after spending one night there Elizabeth is no longer sure.

Zack Harcourt was always the black sheep of the family. He even spent some time in prison. But he has turned his life around and is helping out at a camp for troubled teens. There he sees Elizabeth again. They weren't close in high school but now there is an attraction that cannot be ignored.

Zack is drawn into the strange and disturbing happenings at the Santiago home. He and Elizabeth join forces to get to the bottom of this mystery. They don't realize the evil they are dealing with and how close it is to them.

Scent Of Roses will keep you on the edge of your seat from page one. The suspense is first rate, the chemistry between Zack and Elizabeth is deeply moving. It's a must read for any romantic suspense fan.

Was a good book if you like the whole "saw a ghost" concept.

Good start to this series. Lots of twists and turns to the plot plus romance. Fiction, but based on a true incident.

Elizabeth doesn't believe in ghosts. But this time she has no choice.
Family counselor Elizabeth Conner isn't sure what to think when Maria Santiago comes to her for help. Pregnant and terrified, Maria claims to be visited each night by the ghost of a little girl, warning her to flee. Her husband, Miguel, a migrant worker at Harcourt Farms in the San Joaquin Valley, dismisses her fears as hormonal changes. Sympathetic to the young woman, Elizabeth agrees to help by contacting Miguel's employers, who own the cottage where the young couple lives.

Elizabeth immediately picks up on the deep enmity between the two Harcourt brothers: Carson, the handsome scion running the estate for his incapacitated father, and Zack, the rebellious black sheep. While Carson is more interested in Elizabeth than in her concerns, Zack grudgingly agrees to help her look into the history of the house.

I enjoyed this book. It had a mystery which wasn't overly predictable like a lot of books. And the romance was very believable.

Excellent book! Quite spooky at times, and I enjoyed the relationship between Zach and Liz, as well as reading about the discord between the Harcourt brothers. The mystery of the ghost was very interesting and moved along at a nice pace.
